RTx installer and package system?

Hi-

Im interested in installing the RTx Shredder, and I see in the wiki that
as of the most recent version “As of 12/5/2005 version 0.1.6 this
package uses the RTx installer and package system.”

I looked around the wiki, searched the mailing lists for “RTx” and read
thru quite a bit of the results, but saw no definitive info on what the
RTx installer and package system was/is.

Can someone point me towards it or clarify if it doesn’t exist?

Thanks
duncan

Ermm. I think you mean RTx Statistics, not RTx Shredder, no?

Here’s a link to a CPAN search for RTx, you’ll see several things,
including Module::Install::RTx which is the tool you use to build RTx
installers…

Yes, I mean RTx Statistics

I was asking about this reference to an “RTx Installer”

On Page:

http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?RT3StatisticsPackage

“As of 12/5/2005 version 0.1.6 this package uses the RTx installer and
package system.”

What is the RTx installer?

Does that mean its something that should be used to install all RTx*
pieces or is it something that people who write RTx should use to
facilitate the RTx software installs?

I read the line about the RTx installer and package system and thought
there was some non CPAN way that should be used to install RTx* things
and then when searching for any info about the “RTx Installer and
package system” I got very very little, so thus the root of my
confusion.

thanks

Duncan,
I wrote the phrase you’re referring to, and I can tell you that
I specifically meant Module::Install::RTx. The entire comment meant
that now the Statistics package was being built with this tool, and
distributed as are other RTx modules.

and how are the others being distributed? Via CPAN?

duncan

Yes, they are available on CPAN. As I wrote earlier this month,
RTx::Statistics will also be on CPAN, once I have time to get it
uploaded.

I was hoping for a bit more feedback before putting it on CPAN, I think
there have been two people that let me know they’re using it, one of
them is having problems, so at the moment, we’re one for two, not so
great…

I am also using Statistics. I grabbed the latest version you had up,
0.1.6, I believe and it loaded right up. I’m running RT 3.4.4 and
haven’t had any issues with it so far. It’s a nice little add on.

A ha.

OK, so grab the source, do the normal install… will do and give you
some feedback too :slight_smile:

I installed 0.1.6 on RT-3.4.1/Postgres the other day. The graphs work,
but the report data is weird.

A few examples:
Tickets per Day - Looks good

Tickets by Status - Looks good

Multiple Queues - Each and every day’s total = 7,257 (only one queue)
(Hmmm. This seems to be working now. I’ll keep an eye on it.)

Ticket Trends by Day -
Total Created = 123 (Actual = 8853)
Total Resolved = 7,135 (Actual = 8347)
Total Deleted = 0 (Actual = 382)

Time to Resolve - Resolved column showed all zeroes until changing
/share/html/RTx/Statistics/Resolution/index.html line 49 to

%    $tix->LimitStatus(VALUE => "resolved");
    from
%    $tix->LimitStatus(VALUE => "Resolved"); 
(Note the uppercase 'R')

That’s all I’ve found so far.

Another person on the list is seeing this, but it’s also affecting his
base RT tables. This one beats me, I haven’t been able to figure out
what causes it.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Les,
I forgot to ask, in the Ticket Trends by Day, are the numbers in
the table correct, but the total line in the table is wrong? Are the
graphed numbers correct? Or, is everything just off?

All of the numbers are wrong. Sorry for the delay. I’m on vacation, so
not checking email much.
