I just replaced the machine that runs ganglia.

httpd is being prevented from connecting to gmond.

All that is displayed is:

There was an error collecting ganglia data ( fsockopen
error: Permission denied

There's a message in /var/log/messages that blames selinux every time I
load the page.

and sealert says that I could change the behavior by setting
allow_ypbind or httpd_can_network_connect

allow httpd_t unreserved_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;

I can see how letting httpd make arbitrary connections is bad, so how
can I punch a hole in the rule just for ganglia?
