module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

AlexCline/disk_stats — version 0.3.0 May 22nd 2013


A Puppet module containing a set of facts about system disk stats and usage.

Tested on:

  • CentOS 6.4
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


Facts are created for each mounted partition in the system. The name of the fact is generated from the mount path of the partition.

disk_stats_root_free => 18 GB
disk_stats_root_options => rw,errors=remount-ro
disk_stats_root_path => /
disk_stats_root_size => 20 GB
disk_stats_root_type => ext4
disk_stats_root_used => 2 GB

Note: Swap and binfmt partitions and devices with 0 blocks are not shown.


The disk_stats module requires rubygems and the 'sys/filesystem' gem. You can install it using:

gem install sys-filesystem

Or, you can include the 'disk_stats' class on your nodes to install the required dependencies.

include disk_stats

If your node doesn't have the required dependencies on the first puppet run, the facts will not be properly populated. You'll need to run puppet twice: one to install deps, one to populate the facts.
