Manages the mcelog utility for x86-64 CPU Machine Check Exception data


This is a puppet module for the installation and configuration of the mcelog utility. Which can be used either from the cli or run as a daemon that extracts and decodes Machine Check Exception (MCE) data.



include ::mcelog


This class is presently the only public API in this module.

# defaults
class { '::mcelog':
  config_file_template => 'mcelog/mcelog.conf.erb',




This module is extremely basic. A few obvious improvements would be to:

  • provide more configuration options; specifically enable/disable mce events being sent to syslog
  • logrotated setup of the mcelog log file

Please note that MCE is only avaiable on x86_64. It /can not/ work and the package is likely not avaible on i386 hosts. mcelog has been removed from Debian >= 10 and replaced by rasdaemon.


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