Overview

A puppet module to manage an apt-cacher-ng service and its configuration. Applying aptcacherng to a node will configure the node to act as a caching proxy for apt (and other) package management systems.

Setup

What aptcacherng affects

Use of aptcacherng causes installation of the apt-cacher-ng package, generation of the config file /etc/apt-cacher-ng/acng.conf, and the apt-cacher-ng service to run and be enabled.

Beginning with aptcacherng

Quickest way to get an apt caching proxy using defaults:

class {'aptcacherng':}

This will apply all resources and leave you with apt-cacher-ng running on port 3142.

Usage

Simply declaring the aptcacherng class for a node, will apply the class using standard apt-cacher-ng defaults:

  • CacheDir: /var/cache/apt-cacher-ng
  • LogDir: /var/log/apt-cacher-ng
  • Port: 3142
  • ReportPage: acng-report.html
  • ExTreshold: 4

All apt-cacher-ng config file directives are available as parameters to the aptcacherng class. For example, to change the directory where apt-cacher-ng will store its cache:

class {'aptcacherng':
    cachedir => '/data/apt/apt-cacher-ng'
}

Or, in a YAML hiera data source—for example—you could make use of automatic parameter lookups like so:

---
classes:
  - aptcacherng

aptcacherng::cachedir: "/data/apt/apt-cacher-ng"

If you wish to make aptcacherng install a specific apt-cacher-ng package, you may pass the packagename string parameter when declaring the class.

If you're using the puppetlabs-apt module, telling apt to use your apt-cacher-ng service is simple. For example:

class {'apt':
    proxy_host => 'server.name.com',
    proxy_port => '3142',
}

Limitations

Only debian based distributions are currently supported.
