Enhance Sysload discovery

Sysload items discovery is done at startup time only. We are using clustered resources on RHEL and have the following issue: when clustered resources (like filesystems) are mounted on a host where Sysload is already running, it does not discover these new resources. As a result, metrics are not collected for these new ones.

The actual workaround is to restart Sysload after a cluster switch.

We would like to have a time-based parameter that would set a periodic discovery.

When the agent starts, the Collector scans File Systems mounted in /etc/fstab. You must set the parameter Nb_Fs



#Format               : Integer on 3 digits

#Optional/Mandatory   : Optional

Console labels (EN)   : Section [General]"No File System"

Console labels (FR)   : Section [Général]"Nb. de File System"


For example, you can define "Nb_Fs" by setting a value greater than the total number of FS (cluster 1 + cluster 2).

If new FS appear, they will be added to the list.
