The stackify module installs and manages the stackify agent and service on Windows systems.

Stackify is an APM tools that uses an agent on nodes that need to be monitored.


Setup Requirements

The stackify module requires the following:

  • Puppet Agent 4.7.1 or later.
  • Access to the internet.
  • Stackify account setup and a license/activation key in hand.
  • Windows Server 2012/2012R2/2016.

Beginning with stackify

To get started with the stackify module simply include the following in your manifest:

class { 'stackify':
    package_ensure                        => 'present',
    package_install_options_environment   => 'development',
    package_install_options_activationkey => 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX',

This example downloads and installs the latest version of the stackify agent and ensures the stackify services are running and in the desired state. After running this you should see your node pop up in the stackify servers list from the web ui.

A more advanced configuration including all attributes available:

class { 'stackify':
   package_ensure                        => 'present',
   package_install_options_environment   => 'development',
   package_install_options_activationkey => 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX',
   file_download_directory               => 'C:\\Temp',
   service_manage                        => true,
   service_ensure                        => true,
   service_enable                        => true,

The above is just an example of the flexibility you have with this module. You will generally never need to specify every or even so many parameters as shown.

    package_install_options_environment   => 'development',
    package_install_options_activationkey => 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX',
    service_manage                        => false,
