5.0 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.

This module will manage GPFS.


What gpfs affects

At this time the module is capable of installing GPFS packages and managing ISKLM configurations as well as SSH key authorization for client root logins.


The class to include is based on a host's role:

  • gpfs::client - GPFS clients
  • gpfs::server - GPFS NSDs
  • gpfs::ces - GPFS CES nodes
  • gpfs::gui - GPFS GUI nodes

The class gpfs is not intended to be included directly but instead configured via Hiera

NOTE: All usage examples will assume you're using Hiera to define data.

Repo configuration

The following is an example of configuring central YUM repository that hosts GPFS RPMs.

gpfs::repo_baseurl: '$releasever/'


The following example will install packages necessary for GPFS client, configure SSH keys and enable ISKLM encryption.

gpfs_keystore_password: >
    key: 'AAAAB3Nza=='
    type: 'ISKLM'
      - 'tls://isklm01:5696'
      - 'tls://isklm02:5696'
    key_store: '/var/mmfs/etc/RKMcerts/ISKLM.gpfs'
    key_store_source: 'puppet:///modules/profile/gpfs/ISKLM.gpfs'
    passphrase: "%{lookup('gpfs_keystore_password')}"
    client_cert_label: 'gpfs'
    tenant_name: 'GS_ISKLM'

Filesets and Fileset Quotas

This module provides native types for managing GPFS filesets and GPFS quotas. Each defaults to the shell provider but there is also a rest_v2 provider.

NOTE: The rest_v2 provider is no longer tested or maintained NOTE: The gpfs_fileset_quota type is capable of managing user and group quotas but only fileset quotas have been tested in production.

Create a fileset and fileset quota:

gpfs_fileset { 'test':
  ensure => 'present',
  filesystem     => 'project',
  path           => '/gpfs/project/test',
  owner          => 'user1:group1',
  permissions    => '0770',
  max_num_inodes => 1000000,
  alloc_inodes   => 1000000,

gpfs_fileset_quota { 'test':
  filesystem       => 'project',
  block_soft_limit => '5T',
  block_hard_limit => '5T',
  files_soft_limit => 1000000,
  files_hard_limit => 1000000,
