Choria Sysctl Data Plugin

This plugin can retrieve a value from a sysctl variable to be used in agents and discovery.


Add the agent and client:

  - mcollective_data_sysctl


Sample usage to select all machines where ipv4 forwarding is enabled:

$ mco find -S "sysctl('net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding').value=1"


This plugin works on all systems where sysctl(8) is installed as /sbin/sysctl such as Linux, *BSD, etc.
