3.1 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.

thias/lsyncd — version 1.0.0 Apr 1st 2015


Install, enable and configure lsyncd, the live syncing daemon. This module has initially been developed for and tested on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 only.

  • lsyncd : Main class to install, enable and configure the service.


Simple instance using the lsyncd.conf file from a module named example :

class { 'lsyncd': config_source => 'puppet:///modules/example/lsyncd.conf' }

If you are going to be interfacing lsyncd with csync2 to perform an all-way near-instantaneous file synchronization, you can use the provided template :

$lsyncd_csync2_sources = {
  '/var/www'  => 'www',
  '/srv/data' => 'data',
class { 'lsyncd':
  config_content => template('lsyncd/lsyncd-csync2.conf.erb'),

This will have lsyncd trigger csync2 -C www -x for changes made to /var/www and csync2 -C data -x for changes made to /srv/data. Compared to using rsync, using csync2 has the advantage of providing safe file deleting in any direction.
