module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

Manages the irqbalance package


Installs and manages the the IRQ balancing daemon software package. The daemon is only enabled/started if the system has a $::processorcountof greater than one. This is because the daemon will automatically exit on single processor systems.


include irqbalance

class { 'irqbalance': }

class { 'irqbalance': ensure => present } # default
class { 'irqbalance': ensure => latest }
class { 'irqbalance': ensure => absent }
  • ensure

    String defaults to: present

    Uses Standard Puppet ensure semantics. Valid values are: present, absent


On $::osfamily == 'RedHat', no attempt is made to manage /etc/sysconfig/irqbalance. This is arguably a bug.

On $::osfamily == 'Debian', no attempt is made to manage /etc/default/irqbalance. This is also arguably a bug.

Tested Platforms

  • el5.x
  • el6.x
  • Fedora 18
  • Debian 7.0 (wheezy)
  • Ubuntu precise (12.04.2 LTS)


This module is versioned according to the Semantic Versioning 2.0.0 specification.
