What consul_alerts affects

  • Installs a version specific version of consul-alerts to your system


puppet module install jlondon-consul_alerts

Also supports inclusion in librarian-puppet

Usage of the module is pretty basic and shouldn't need much other than a default run:

class { 'consul_alerts':
  ensure      => present,
  data_center => 'dc1', 

Note: Make sure you have consul and key/value config for consul-alerts configured before installation!


Only tested to work with Debian wheezy, Ubuntu precise/trusty or centos 5/6.
