This module will install the newrelic_insights report handlers. It also contains Puppet code to manage all of the settings required by them.


The report handlers can be set up manually or using the supplied puppet code:

Manual Setup

To use this module you will need a couple of things, firstly your report handler of choice will need to be added to the puppet.conf:

reports = newrelic_insights,console,puppetdb

You will also need to create a newrelic_insights.yaml at you confdir (usually /etc/puppetlabs/puppet) that looks like this:

"account_id": "9999999"
"insights_key": "NRII-Dq27pLP6mwdoSqLH1zZl4Fcyn0Nj4GTU"

Automated setup

I have included a class that can do all of this for you:

Class: puppet2newrelic

It is important to note that this class requires a restart of the puppet server. This can be implemented with something like this:

class { 'puppet2newrelic':
  account_id   => "9999999"
  insights_key => "NRII-Dq27pLP6mwdoSqLH1zZl4Fcyn0Nj4GTU"
  notify       => Service['pe-puppetserver'],
