Rrdcached.service on AlmaLinux

Following the cookbook to install and configure rrdcached according to CentOS 7 or 8 I had rrdcached up and running (after changing $config[‘rrdcached’] from “unix:/var/run/rrdcached.sock”; to “unix:/usr/lib/systemd/system/rrdcached.socket”; ) though my graphs wouldn’t work. After some tweaking, I seem to have broken rrdcached…

Starting the service reports:

systemctl status rrdcached.service
