Module: puppet_maint

Provides Tidy resources for cleaning up various Puppet directories.

About

Through a single parameterized class (puppet_maint), you may turn on and configure maintenance of the following items:

  • Puppet Reports
  • Client FileBucket
  • Master FileBucket

Parameters

$tidy_reports -- Whether to remove old reports

  • Accepts boolean true or false (defaults to false)

    $tidy_master_filebucket -- Whether to remove old content from the master filebucket

  • Accepts boolean true or false (defaults to false)

    $tidy_client_filebucket -- Whether to remove old content form the client filebucket

  • Accepts boolean true or false (defaults to false)

    $max_report_age -- Maximum accepted report age

  • Accepts a string based on the below criteria (defaults to '4w')

    $max_filebucket_age -- Maximum accepted age for bucket content

  • Accepts a string based on the below criteria (defaults to '4w')

Criteria for age variable values (from Tidy):

Example Usage

In the simplest use, you'd declare the class in site.pp for all of your agents.

Dependancies

This module requires puppetlabs-stdlib for the puppet_vardir fact which makes the resources work properly on both FOSS and PE Puppet deployments.

Known Issues

  • Filebucket Tidy's will tidy $vardir/bucket or $vardir/clientbucket if they're empty. Puppet recreates them next Puppet run.
  • Unless this module uses the PE facts from facts.d, Tidy[tidy_master_filebucket] will attempt to run on client systems, resulting in "info: /Stage[main]/Puppet_maint/Tidy[tidy_master_filebucket]: File does not exist"
    • Same with Tidy[tidy_puppet_reports]
    • This does not cause failed runs, just a couple extra and useless resources on agent systems.

Contributions Needed

  • Resolved Known Issues
  • Spec Tests
  • Way of determining agent vs master roles without PE specific facts
  • Extra stuff that you're thinking about
    • Keep in mind that the interface should be simple boolean triggers, defaulting to not purging files from a system.
