Change Logs

Version: 1.17-bp150.2.4
* Tue Feb 21 2017
- Update to 1.17:
  * Fix: --importdb was creating invalid databases since version
  * Fix: console output was being buffered which resulted in lack
    of output in at least systemd log
  * Add cross-compilation detection and improve install-data-hook
    to not assume that the binaries can be executed in the host
- Update to 1.16:
  * Fix: traffic rate calculation, SI decimal prefixes were shown
    but calculation was done for IEC binary prefixes
  * Add option for configure to disable image output support even
    if required library is available, improve library detection
  * Add selection between SI decimal prefixes (kbit/s...) (default)
    and IEC binary prefixes (Kibit/s...) for traffic rate using
    RateUnitMode keyword in configuration file
  * Improve database handling resilience
  * Inherit database file ownership from database directory if
    UpdateFileOwner configuration option is enabled (default:
    enabled) when adding new interfaces for monitoring as root.
    This solves database file ownership mismatches when the daemon
    is started as a non-root user and an interface gets added for
    monitoring with a sudo command as root
  * Improve user guidance in error situations related to the
    configured default interface
* Sat Mar 05 2016
- Update to 1.15:
  * Fix: XML output had extra commas, broken since previous version.
  * Fix: unintended shared pointer modification in mosecs()
    sometimes resulted in wrong month name to be shown for the
    current month.
  * Fix possible buffer overflow in /proc/net/dev parsing, requires
    corrupted content in /proc/net/dev or use of address sanitiser.
  * Use ANSI escape codes in -l and -tr modes for cursor location
    manipulation instead of printing backspaces, hide cursor while
    output is active.
  * Improve database import robustness.
  * Improve support for Asian UTF-8 date strings.
  * Replace hand written Makefiles with autotools.
  * Add --alwaysadd parameter to daemon for allowing automatic
    addition of interfaces even if the database directory was
    populated during startup.
* Tue Aug 18 2015
- Fix: vnstati was missing from build, needed for vnstat-cgi to function.
* Tue Aug 04 2015
- Update to 1.14 (changes since 1.11):
  * Fix memory allocation when zero interfaces are available,
    also lo needed to be missing in order to trigger this leak.
  * Fix rebuild total indexing.
  * Fix some error situations that could leave database file open
    until the end of command execution
  * Fix: Live traffic meter occasionally showing higher minimum
    than average in end statistics.
  * Fix setting locale when none is specified in config.
  * Fix cppcheck findings.
  * Improve traffic meter output accuracy.
  * Add tests and debug compilation target.
  * Remove use of -D parameter in Makefile install commands in
    order to improve cross-compilation support.
  * Set CFLAGS in Makefiles only when not already defined.
  * Add support for database import from text file (--importdb).
  * Rename --dumpdb to --exportdb.
  * Add example systemd service file.
  * Use ISO YYYY-MM-DD date format timestamps if logfile is used.
  * Improve daemon startup prints.
  * Add parameters for changing daemon process user and group.
  * Add example upstart job configuration file.
  * Create database, pid and log dirs during daemon startup if
  * Update ownership of database, log and pid files if needed
    during daemon startup if started as root and configured to
    change process user and group.
  * Remove cron update related example files and documentation, the
    cron update method should be considered as deprecated.
  * --create parameter for database creation.
  * Dynamic unit selection in hourly output instead of being fixed
    to KiB.
  * New options in image output (vnstati):
    + -nl / --nolegend for hiding the rx/tx legend;
    + --altdate for using alternative date and time text location;
    + --headertext for using custom text string in image header;
  * Add legend to hourly output image.
  * Add option for content alignment and page background colour to
  * Document keyword value ranges in configuration file man page.
  * Import Makefile improvements from OpenBSD.
  * Automatic interface bandwidth detection, BandwidthDetection in
    config, default fallback value MaxBandwidth changed from 100 to
  * JSON output (--json), vnstat-json.cgi and vnstat-json.php
    examples provided in the 'examples' directory
  * Drop support for over 10 year old database formats
    (versions 1.0 - 1.2).
  * Fix: JSON output syntax during first day of newly created
  * Fix: field padding when using UTF-8 locale.
  * Add optional mode parameter to --json and --xml for limiting
    the output to only selected information.
- Add a systemd service.
- Remove vnstat-cron.patch and cronjob: upstream considers it

- specfile cleanup (added license header and cron dependency)
- fix address of Free Software Foundation in init script
* Mon Feb 04 2013

    /sys/class/net when /proc/net/dev wasn't available which in turn could
    crash the daemon

  * Fix: Don't make temp directory in vnstat.cgi writable for everyone
  * Import GNU/kFreeBSD support from Debian
  (#608963, patch by Mats Erik Andersson)
  * Remove usage of GNU only '-D' option for install for BSD in Makefile
  * The daemon now automatically creates databases for available interfaces
  if no databases are found during startup
* Mon Feb 04 2013
- prevent cron from writing a syslog message about the vnstat call
* Sat Aug 21 2010
- update to 1.10:
