4.6 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

Installation and usage

  • Install puppet-zabbix-reports as a module in your puppet master's module path (defaults to /etc/puppet/modules).

  • Update the :zabbix_hosts in zabbix.yaml, toy can specify multiple zabbix hosts. See examples in zabbix.yamlfile.

  • [DEPRECATED] Update the :zabbix_host and :zabbix_port variables in zabbix.yaml. You should use :zabbix_hosts instead. This option will be removed in the future.

  • Copy zabbix.yaml to puppet config directory (defaults to /etc/puppet).

  • Configure zabbix master to use the zabbix report:

    reports = store, zabbix
  • Enable pluginsync and report on your agents:
    report     = true
    pluginsync = true
  • Unless you run puppet agent on master as well, you will need to run puppet plugin download on master, to sync the files to lib (e.g. /var/lib/puppet/lib). You will need to do it every time you update the module.

  • Import the zabbix template from zabbix-template.xml.

  • Link the template to hosts managed by puppet.

It is recommended that host name in zabbix will match the puppet node name, if it doesn't, use override_hosts option in zabbix.yaml


  • write some unit tests (really?)
