This template is designed to work with Foreman such that the following Global Parameters can be specified inside a Host Group:
limits_conf_nofile_soft limits_conf_nofile_hard limits_conf_nproc_soft limits_conf_nproc_hard
The names are pretty much self explanatory. They define various settings in /etc/security/limits.conf.
If you wanted to set the soft nofile limit for user "tom" to 2048, you would use the following Global Parameter in Foreman:
limits_conf_nofile_soft tom 2048
If you needed to the the soft nofile limit for multiple users, say "tom", "eric", and "barry", you would do the following:
limits_conf_nofile_soft tom 2048, eric 8192, barry 4096
A puppet agent run would then give you an /etc/security/limits.conf file like this:
This file is managed by Puppet
DO NOT EDIT BY HAND
tom soft nofile 2048 eric soft nofile 8192 barry soft nofile 4096
You need to use the correct corresponding Global Paramater to set the various domains/types/values in /etc/security/limits.conf. For now, only these 4 have been created. As demand for others arises, others will be added.
