Puppet KairosDB Module

Puppet Forge Build Status

Table of Contents

  1. Overview
  2. Description
  3. Todo


This is a Puppet Module to deploy and manage a KairosDB server.


To use this module, use either an include-like or resource-like declaration:

# An include-like declaration for Hiera integration.
include ::kairosdb

# A resource-like declaration for manual overrides.
class { '::kairosdb': }

This module will also work with Puppet 4.x.


All configuration can be handled either through Hiera or by arguments to the kairosdb class.


A stock KairosDB 0.9.4-6 without modifications (defaults):

class { '::kairosdb':
  version => '0.9.4-6',

This module by default installs the package from github or googlecode and has the option to install from custom_repo server for restricted environments

class { '::kairosdb':
  version         => '0.9.4-6',
  package_mirror  => 'custom_repo',
  custom_url      => 'http://internalmirror.local/kairosdb/kairosdb_%s_all.deb',

The same thing, but explicitly using a slow development datastore:

class { '::kairosdb':
  version => '0.9.4-6',

class { '::kairosdb::datastore::h2': }

Use an alternative datastore (Cassandra):

class { '::kairosdb':
  version => '0.9.4-6',

class { '::kairosdb::datastore::cassandra':
  hosts => [

Use a remote KairosDB as a datastore (like a forwarder):

class { '::kairosdb':
  version => '0.9.4-6',

class { '::kairosdb::datastore::remote':
  remote_url => '',
