A puppet module for setting up the Prometheus node_exporter service


Although there are no specific requiremets, it worth noting that node_explorer by itself might be useless without a Prometheus server. There are modules ready in the forge for it, therefore it is out of the scope of this one.


Basic usage

This example would install and configure node_exporter for you, then create a service in systemd to manage it.

    class { 'node_exporter': }

Choosing a version

To select a different version than default versions (please check data/commons.yaml for more information), you must provide the version number you want installed, and the correspoding checsum.

    class { 'node_exporter':
      version       => '1.3.1',
    class { 'node_exporter::install':
      checksum      => '68f3802c2dd3980667e4ba65ea2e1fb03f4a4ba026cca375f15a0390ff850949',
      checksum_type => 'sha256',


Change default values, like for example the destination of the binary after extraction

    class { 'node_exporter':
      version       => '1.3.1',

    class { 'node_exporter::install':
      install_path  => '/usr/local/bin',
      checksum      => '68f3802c2dd3980667e4ba65ea2e1fb03f4a4ba026cca375f15a0390ff850949',
      checksum_type => 'sha256',
