Any way to reduce the master to clients polling ?

Hi ! Thanks to inetd logs, we have seen that the master contacts all clients every 10 minutes or less via vnetd. Is there a way to reduce the frequency of this useless polling ? Thanks, Lu.

  • I can confirm that the tcp_trace and tcp_wrapper cause these messages and the technote process works!

  • Yes I know this technote, but what I really want is to slow down the polling. I do not see why the Master has to poll the clients on vnetd, when there are no jobs to run. That's a waste of bandwidth and cpu cycles.
  • If you run stats on your server you'll find lots of wasteful processes. 
    vnetd is the least of your worries. ;)
