Supported hash keys (all keys are required) are:

  • cf

consolidation function (cf) can be AVERAGE | MIN | MAX | LAST

  • xff

xfiles factor (xff) defines what part of a consolidation interval may be made up from UNKNOWN data while the consolidated value is still regarded as known. It is given as the ratio of allowed UNKNOWN PDPs to the number of PDPs in the interval. Thus, it ranges from 0 to 1 (exclusive).

  • steps

steps defines how many of these primary data points are used to build a consolidated data point which then goes into the archive.

  • rows

rows defines how many generations of data values are kept in an RRA. Obviously, this has to be greater than zero.

trusted_hosts

Array of Strings defaults to: '[]'

Each string matches a hostname that is allowed to query ganglia data via the XML query port. Corresponds to the all_trusted field in gmetad.conf.

gmetad_package_name

String defaults to: $::ganglia::params::gmetad_package_name

gmetad_service_name

String defaults to: $::ganglia::params::gmetad_service_name

gmetad_user

String defaults to: $::ganglia::params::gmetad_user

gmetad_case_sensitive_hostnames

Integer defaults to: $::ganglia::params::gmetad_case_sensitive_hostnames

Accepted values are 0 or 1.

ganglia::web

Install and configure the ganglia web front end.

# defaults
class{ 'ganglia::web':
  ganglia_ip   => '127.0.0.1',
  ganglia_port => 8652,
}
ganglia_ip

String defaults to: 127.0.0.1

ganglia_port

String or Integer defaults to: Integer: 8652

Passing a String to $ganglia_port is deprecated. Please use an Integer value.

$::osfamily == RedHat and EPEL packages

As of 2012-11-16, the stable EPEL repos for el5 and el6 contain, respectively, packages for ganglia 3.0.7 and 3.1.7. The ganglia UDP protocol for communication between gmond daemons changed incompatibly between 3.0.x and 3.1.x. However, the TCP based protocol gmetad uses to poll gmond agents has remained compatible.

If it's desirable to stick with the EPEL packages, a possible way of dealing with this is divide a group of hosts into two clusters based on $::lsbmajdistrelease (which should imply gmond version without having to install a custom fact). The example below divides the previous "mycluster" into "mycluster_el5" and "mycluster_el6". Note that you will also have to configure gmetad to pull a gmond agent from each of these new clusters.

    $udp_recv_channel = [
      { port => 8649, bind => 'localhost' },
      { port => 8649, bind => '0.0.0.0' },
    ]
    case $::lsbmajdistrelease {
      5: {
        # epel for el5.x has 3.0.x, which will not work with gmond in 3.1.x
        $udp_send_channel = [
          { port => 8649, host => 'gmond-3-0_host1.example.org', ttl => 2 },
          { port => 8649, host => 'gmond-3-0_host2.example.org', ttl => 2 },
        ]
        $cluster_name = 'mycluster_el5'
      }
      6, default: {
        # epel for el6.x has 3.1.x
        $udp_send_channel = [
          { port => 8649, host => 'gmond-3-1_host1.example.org', ttl => 2 },
          { port => 8649, host => 'gmond-3-1_host2.example.org', ttl => 2 },
        ]
        $cluster_name = 'mycluster_el6'
      }
    }
    $tcp_accept_channel = [
      {port => 8649},
    ]

    class{ 'ganglia::gmond':
      cluster_name       => 'example grid',
      cluster_owner      => 'ACME, Inc.',
      cluster_latlong    => 'N32.2332147 W110.9481163',
      cluster_url        => 'www.example.org',
