Description

This module aims to decrease the amount of time a puppet agent needs to spend syncing plugins from the puppet master.

Specifically, the module places a tar.gz of all of the plugins that are already synced on the master into /packages which is already hosted for agents to pull the frictionless agent installer from in PE. The module also lays down a small script that can be downloaded and run on the agent side to extract the tarball into the directory for agent plugins.

Usage

bulk_pluginsync::compile_master_pool_address

You can configure where agents will download the pluginsync tarball from with this parameter.

By default, it will be the primary master ( the master with the CA running on it).

Where to apply this module

You should classify this module on all of your master nodes.

Changing your agent provisioning script

Add the following before you install the puppet agent in your script.

curl -k https://<master_host_name>:8140/packages/current/bulk_pluginsync.bash | sudo bash

Limitations

Should work on all PE master platforms.
