#arpwatch

##Overview

This Puppet module installs, configures and manages the Arpwatch daemon.

  • arpwatch service configuration file.
  • arpwatch service.

include '::arpwatch'

  • arpwatch: main class.

###Public Parameters

####package_ensure

##Limitations

This module has been tested on Puppet 3.5.0 but should work on:

  • Puppet 3.x and higher.

The module has been tested on Ubuntu 13.10 but should work on the latest stable releases of:

  • Ubuntu
  • Debian
  • Fedora
  • RedHat

Though, given the lack of frequent updates to arpwatch and its packaging in most distributions, the module should work on all RedHat and Debian distrbution variants.

There is currently no support for the Debian-specific /etc/arpwatch.conf file for configuring individual options (though the intention to support it eventually is there).
