Title mk_inventory: Fix persistence of inventory data on Solaris
Date Jul 11, 2023
Checkmk Version 2.3.0b1 2.2.0p7
Level Trivial Change
Class Bug Fix

The mk_inventory agent plugin outputs inventory data every four hours (by default). This output is marked as persisted and stored on a Checkmk site for longer use.

If the persisted option is missing, especially for only-inventory data, then there might be a flapping effect of the HW/SW Inventory service and superfluous history entries are added.
