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.

Puppet FhGFS

Build Status

This is the puppet-fhgfs module for managing the Fraunhofer Parallel File System (FhGFS)


You need one mgmtd server:

    class { 'fhgfs::mgmtd': }

And probably many storage and meta servers:

    class { 'fhgfs::meta':
      mgmtd_host =>,
    class { 'fhgfs::storage':
      mgmtd_host =>,

defining a mount

  fhgfs::mount{ 'mnt-share':
    cfg => '/etc/fhgfs/fhgfs-client.conf',
    mnt   => '/mnt/share',
    user  => 'fhgfs',
    group => 'fhgfs',


For meta and storage nodes you can specify interfaces for commutication. The passed argument must be an array.

    class { 'fhgfs::meta':
      mgmtd_host =>,
      interfaces => ['eth0', 'ib0'],
    class { 'fhgfs::storage':
      mgmtd_host =>,
      interfaces => ['eth0', 'ib0']

Hiera support

All configuration could be specified in Hiera config files. Some settings are shared between all components, like:

fhgfs::version: '2012.10.r9.debian7'

for module specific setting use correct namespace, e.g.:

  - 'eth0'
