SNMP tasks Puppet Forge module for RHEL

Install

puppet module install llehmijo/snmp_tasks_rhel

Usage

Monitoring HTTP services

# In site.pp
node "superserver" {
  # Add smoke test task for an HTTP application
  snmp_tasks_rhel::http_smoke_test { "my-web-app":
    http_port            => 80,
    smoke_test_path      => "/",
    tasks_home_directory => "/opt/monitoring-tasks"
  }
}

The above snippet creates a Bash script /opt/monitoring-tasks/my-web-app-http_smoke_test.sh. Furthermore, it will add the script into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and restart Service['net-snmp'].

By default, the smoke test will hit localhost. You can change the host by adding the parameter http_hostname_or_ip.

Monitoring file emptiness

# In site.pp
node "superserver" {
  # Add file emptiness test
  snmp_tasks_rhel::file_emptiness_test { "my_app_error_log":
    file_to_test         => "/my/app/error.log",
    tasks_home_directory => "/opt/monitoring-tasks"
  }
}

The above snippet creates a Bash script /opt/monitoring-tasks/my_app_error_log-file_emptiness_test.rb. Furthermore, it will add the script into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and restart Service['net-snmp'].

This function will install Ruby, if it's not yet present.

Monitoring file timestamps

# In site.pp
node "superserver" {
  snmp_tasks_rhel::file_max_age { "cron-job-monitor":
    file_to_test         => "/opt/logs/cron-job-timestamp",
    max_age_in_days      => 1,
    error_message        => "Cronjob has not run within 1 days",
    tasks_home_directory => "/opt/monitoring-tasks"
  }
}

The above snippet creates a Bash script that will exit with code 1 if the file /opt/logs/cron-job-timestamp is more than one days old. Before exit, it will print the error_message.

You can also monitor files with one minute precision:

snmp_tasks_rhel::file_max_age_minutes { "cron-job-monitor":
  file_to_test         => "/opt/logs/cron-job-timestamp",
  max_age_in_minutes   => 5,
  error_message        => "Cronjob has not run within 5 minutes",
  tasks_home_directory => "/opt/monitoring-tasks"
}
