Hi there,


I'm having an issue with pgAgent which I'm sure is related to this bug:


I'm on Solaris x86, using pgAdmin 1.8.0 (the latest available build for this


When I start pgagent, I get this error though:


DEBUG: Database sanity check

DEBUG: Clearing zombies

18:56:08: Error: Cannot get the hostname (error 0: Error 0)

DEBUG: Checking for jobs to run



I've looked through the source, and it's probably here that it's failing.


int MainRestartLoop(DBconn *serviceConn)


wxString hostname = wxGetFullHostName();



Any idea as to why the hostname is not being returned? This is the cause of
the problem, I think.

Essentially, the SQL being issued is this:


            SELECT J.jobid 

              FROM pgagent.pga_job J 

             WHERE jobenabled 

               AND jobagentid IS NULL 

               AND jobnextrun <= now() 

               AND jobhostagent = '' OR jobhostagent = ''

             ORDER BY jobnextrun


So it ALWAYS returns the jobs, regardless of whether they're enabled or not.
Hence, they run at every single poll!


Many thanks

Andy Tilley
