given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Table of Contents

Overview

This module manages Linux IP sets.

  • Checks for current ipset state, before doing any changes to it.
  • Applies ipset every time it drifts from target state, not only on config file change.
  • Handles type changes.
  • Autostart support for RHEL 6 and RHEL 7 family (upstart, systemd).

Usage

Array

IP sets can be filled from an array data structure. Typically passed from Hiera.

ipset::set { 'foo':
  ensure => present,
  set    => ['1.2.3.4', '5.6.7.8'],
  type   => 'hash:ip',
}

String

You can also pass a pre-formatted string directly, using one entry per line (with \n as a separator). This pattern is practical when generating the IP set entries using a template.

ipset::set { 'foo':
  ensure => present,
  set    => "1.2.3.4\n5.6.7.8",
  type   => 'hash:ip',
}

Module file

IP sets content can also be stored in a module file:

ipset::set { 'foo':
  ensure => present,
  set    => "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/foo.ipset",
}

Local file

Or using a plain text file stored on the filesystem:

file { '/tmp/bar_set_content':
  ensure  => present,
  content => "1.2.3.0/24\n5.6.7.8/32",
}

ipset::set { 'bar':
  ensure    => present,
  set       => 'file:///tmp/bar_set_content',
  type      => 'hash:net',
  subscribe => File['/tmp/bar_set_content'],
}

Unmanaged ipsets

Declare an IP set, without managing its content:

ipset::unmanaged { 'baz':
  ensure => present,
  type   => 'hash:net',
}

Useful when you have a dynamic process that generates an IP set content, but still want to define and use it from Puppet.

Warning: When changing IP set attributes (type, options) contents won't be kept, set will be recreated as empty.

Reference

The module uses puppet-strings for documentation. The result is the REFERENCE.md file.

Limitations

  • Tested on Debian and RedHat-like Linux distributions
  • Only hash ipsets are supported (this excludes bitmap and list:set)

Thanks

This module is a complete rewrite of sl0m0ZA/ipset, which is a fork of pmuller/ipset, which was forked from mighq/ipset, which was based on thias/ipset.
