Overview

This puppet module installs Shinken, an open source monitoring framework.

Module Description

Shinken is a useful open source monitoring framework, and this module provides a simplified way of creating configurations to manage your infrastructure.

This module installs Shinken and helps you to configure it.

Setup

What shinken affects

  • Configuration files and directories (created and written to)
  • package/service/configuration files for Shinken
  • Shinken modules

Setup Requirements

This module requires nothing extra before setting up.

Beginning with shinken

To install Shinken with the default parameters:

    class { 'shinken': }

The defaults are determined as below, and you can establish customized parameters.

    class { 'shinken':
      ensure      => present,
      user        => 'shinken',
      group       => 'shinken',
      modules     => [],
      conf_dir    => '/etc/shinken',
      modules_dir => '/etc/shinken/modules',
      daemons_dir => '/etc/shinken/daemons',
    }

Usage

This module modifies Shinken configuration files and directories and purges any configuration not managed by Puppet. Configuration of Shinken should be managed by Puppet, as non-Puppet configuration files can cause unexpected failures.

By default the webui is available:

  • http://localhost:7767
  • login: admin
  • password: admin
