After some updates, tracer incorrectly reports a necessary service restart even though the service has been restarted during update. Latest example: a new version of puppet-agent. I have updated it on all my content hosts and now all CentOS 7 hosts report the puppet needs to be restarted even though I verified on various hosts that puppet has been restarted. I don’t see this with all updates, only with some. Kind of defies the purpose of the whole tracer thing if it doesn’t correctly pick up a service restart during an update.
(CentOS 8 seems to report correctly)
I still haven’t figured out how tracer exactly decides whether a service needs to be restarted or not.
