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.

evenup/riakdev — version 2.0.0 Aug 5th 2015

What is it?

A puppet module that creates a riak "development" cluster. It takes care of putting binary files on disk and creating the cluster, but does not create the initial binary tarball. To create the binary tarball:

Download current [source](
tar -xzf riak-${version}.tar.gz
cd riak-${version}
make all
make devrel DEVNODES=1
cd dev
mv dev1 dev
tar -czf riak-dev-instance-${version}.tar.gz dev

The riak cluster is automatically backed up by evenup/backups and graphite statics through sensu are provided. Both will be made optional in a future release.


Known Issues:

Only tested on CentOS 6


[ ] Make backups optional [ ] Make sensu monitoring optional
