4.7 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 perfSONAR


What perfsonar affects

At this time the module only adds the perfSONAR repo, installs packages and manages firewall rules.


To install perfSONAR:

include perfsonar

Set the web user's admin password and remove file that adds a prompt to root logins:

class { 'perfsonar':
  web_admin_password => 'changeme',
  remove_root_prompt => true,

NOTE: On Puppet 8 the process to add the web admin password is not idempotent. Applying the web admin password on Puppet 8 requires 2 Puppet runs

Managing pscheduler-agent

One or more pscheduler-agent remotes may be configured.

(Hiera Example)

perfsonar::manage_pscheduler_agent: true
    - url: ""
      configure-archives: true

Disabling perfsonar-lsregistrationdaemon

The perfsonar-lsregistrationdaemon daemon is responsible for registering the perfsonar instance in the global registry.

(Hiera Example)

perfsonar::manage_lsregistrationdaemon: true
perfsonar::lsregistrationdaemon_ensure: 'stopped'
perfsonar::lsregistrationdaemon_enable: false
