2.5 quality score

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.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

jowy/druid — version 0.2.1 Jul 6th 2014

##Druid Puppet Module

This is a basic puppet module for managing various Druid nodes. The module will download and install the defined Druid version libraries, bootstrap the defined Druid nodes, and maintain the Druid server processes using Supervisord.

WTF is Druid? Druid is an open-source analytics data store designed for real-time exploratory queries on large-scale event data. Druid provides cost-effective, highly-available real-time data ingestion and arbitrary data exploration. Built by a few really awesome guys over at Metamarkets.

Disclaimer: This is a very rough module and has only been tested so far with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit, but should work with most Debian based distributions. I would recommend only using this module in development unless you really know what your doing and have read through all of the Docs.



  • DRY things up
  • Better support for hiera
  • Dynamic nodes
  • Better indexing service support
  • Better supervisord handling
  • Hadoop indexing configurations
  • Better download handling
  • More validations
  • Pre-configuration to run out of the box
  • Optional S3 (may not need historical)
  • Other platform support
  • Declarative RT node spec configuration
  • Vagrantfile
  • Example manifests for default Druid examples

NOTE: Using the default Realtime Node configuration, you will be required to have a RabbitMQ instance available. See the extensions property for Class druid::node::realtime.
