For detailed info about the logic and usage patterns of Example42 modules check the DOCS directory on Example42 main modules set.

USAGE - Basic management

  • Install newrelic with default settings

      class { 'newrelic': }
  • Install a specific version of newrelic package

      class { 'newrelic':
        version => '1.0.1',
  • Disable newrelic service.

      class { 'newrelic':
        disable => true
  • Remove newrelic package

      class { 'newrelic':
        absent => true
  • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing newrelic configuration files

      class { 'newrelic':
        audit_only => true
  • Module dry-run: Do not make any change on all the resources provided by the module

      class { 'newrelic':
        noops => true

USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

  • Use custom sources for main config file

      class { 'newrelic':
        source => [ "puppet:///modules/example42/newrelic/newrelic.conf-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/example42/newrelic/newrelic.conf" ], 
  • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

      class { 'newrelic':
        source_dir       => 'puppet:///modules/example42/newrelic/conf/',
        source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
  • Use custom template for main config file. Note that template and source arguments are alternative.

      class { 'newrelic':
        template => 'example42/newrelic/newrelic.conf.erb',
  • Automatically include a custom subclass

      class { 'newrelic':
        my_class => 'example42::my_newrelic',

USAGE - Example42 extensions management

  • Activate puppi (recommended, but disabled by default)

      class { 'newrelic':
        puppi    => true,
  • Activate puppi and use a custom puppi_helper template (to be provided separately with a puppi::helper define ) to customize the output of puppi commands

      class { 'newrelic':
        puppi        => true,
        puppi_helper => 'myhelper', 
  • Activate automatic monitoring (recommended, but disabled by default). This option requires the usage of Example42 monitor and relevant monitor tools modules

      class { 'newrelic':
        monitor      => true,
        monitor_tool => [ 'nagios' , 'monit' , 'munin' ],
  • Activate automatic firewalling. This option requires the usage of Example42 firewall and relevant firewall tools modules

      class { 'newrelic':       
        firewall      => true,
        firewall_tool => 'iptables',
        firewall_src  => '',
        firewall_dst  => $ipaddress_eth0,
