puppet-cimlog

Description

CIM Log is a Puppet report processor that formats report data as field=value pairs and logs over syslog, so Splunk can automatically extract fields. This is being designed for use with my Puppet Pulse App for Splunk, so its output will change to meet the needs of that.

Installation

To use, check out or download into your Puppet modules directory or install using the Puppet module tool. puppet.conf needs the following:

  • pluginsync enabled
  • agent configured to send reports
  • master configured with cimlog as a report processor

My puppet.conf looks something like this:

[main]
pluginsync = true

[agent]
report = true

[master]
reports = cimlog

Output

Some sample anonymized output:
