Module description

This module will set up and install sensu-wrapper, a tool designed to run arbitrary commands and return the result to sensu.

This will:

  • Download the golang binary for Linux, and install it for you (by default in /usr/local/bin)


What puppet-cron affects

  • puppet-sensu_wrapper simply downloads the binary for sensu_wrapper using the puppet-archive module and make it available to run

Beginning with puppet-cron

Simply include the module like so:

  include ::sensu_wrapper

You may want to use a class include if you wish to override parameters:

  class { '::sensu_wrapper' :
    version => 'v0.2',


I just want to manage sensu_wrapper, what's the minimum I need

  include ::sensu_wrapper

I want to download from a custom URL

If you need to pull the binary from a local HTTP repository rather than github, you'll need to specify a URL like so:

  class { '::sensu_wrapper':
    download_url => 'http://my-http-server/sensu_wrapper/v0.2/sensu_wrapper.tar.gz,
    version      => 'v0.2',

Please note, you should still set the version to ensure the symlink/directories and upgrades work
