Manage user and group limits via Puppet

This module manages the limits.

How to use

Purge limits.d directory

The class limits will purge the limit.d directory as default. You can explicit change this with the parameter purge_limits_d_dir or just do not call the class.

class { 'limits': }

limits::limits { 'username_nofile':
ensure     => present,
user       => 'username',
limit_type => 'nofile',
hard       => 16384,
soft       => 16384,
}

Do NOT purge limits.d directory explicit

class { 'limits':
purge_limits_d_dir => false,
}

limits::limits { 'username_nofile':
ensure     => present,
user       => 'username',
limit_type => 'nofile',
hard       => 16384,
}

Set both limit types in one line

limits::limits { 'username_nofile':
ensure     => present,
user       => 'username',
limit_type => 'nofile',
both       => 16384,
}

One of hard, soft or both must be set!
