Setting up flume to use ganglia results in a lot of error messages in /var/log/messages
We just noticed that ganglia's gmetad is spamming messages like the
following

The counters are tracked fine on the web interface, but we've had
issues(gmetad crashing or not starting up, I'm still trying to get
specifics from the responsible people). I can't say for sure if this is
a ganglia problem or a problem with flumes ganglia support. Anyone else
feeding their counters to ganglia getting similar? Perhaps the ganglia
ml may be more appropriate, not sure on this one.
