Hello friends,

Just have a question regarding mtrancid
For some reason I have been getting router config diffs emails which
contain only +- connection close, which doesn't reflect a config change and
is strange.

This only occurs on 1-2 devices

Rancid 3.6.1

Revision 100
- Connection to <myrouter> closed.


Revision 98

+ Connection to <myrouter> closed.


Mtrancid consists of

It seems that mtrancid is picking up the SSH session close
Logs do not show any errors which means its reaching the end of run and has
a clean exit right?

I am able to run all these commands with no problem and rancid-run gives me
no errors/hiccups.
Execution is smooth and does not have any delays (<1minute)

If there was a problem, the end-of-run detection would pick it up?

Just going through the script and I can’t seem to identify where/why this
would get picked up.
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this before. I could always
filter out the "connection closed" but I am curious why this is happening.

Many thanks
