nagaina: Mon Nov 6 21:14:00 2006

Noted today that probe_ntp doesn't work too well if ntpq isn't installed. (I should either start packaging nagaina instead of checking it out on the server, or implement an is-package-installed probe to check for the dependencies :-)

Karl points out that "having infrastructure so the probes can be clever about reporting subsidiary programs would be good" to which I responded that one of the "soon" features is test dependencies ("don't bother with Y if X failed") and it would fit well in that. (This particular test did "report file not found" on the ntp invocation, I just thought it was path until I looked closer.

Also, after this morning, I want a nagaina probe for "excess tire wear"...
