puppetlabs/boundary — version 1.3.0 Jul 4th 2013

Boundary module

This is the Boundary module.

To use it:

class { 'boundary':
  id     => 'organisation_id',
  apikey => 'apikey',
  tags   => [ 'these', 'are', 'tags' ]

To remove a meter change your include to:

class { 'boundary::delete':
  id     => 'organisation_id',
  apikey => 'apikey',

To specify a stand-alone probe you can use the boundary_meter resource:

boundary_meter { "nameofprobe":
  ensure  => present,
  id      => '1234556789',
  apikey  => 'abcdef123456',
  tags    => [ "production", "web", "cluster" ],

You can also use the proxy_addr and proxy_port options to specify a proxy server if required.

Dashboard Support

It is possible to use this module from Puppet Dashboard (aka Console). To use the module add boundary to the list of classes. Then add the boundary class directly to a node or a group. The following dashboard parameters are supported:

  • apikey
  • id
  • collector
  • collector_port
  • tags

The tags parameter is an array of tag names to apply to this bprobe (e.g., [ 'a', 'list', 'of', 'tags' ] ).

Report processor

The module also contains a report processor that can send the results of Puppet runs as Boundary annotations. Reports will only be created for Puppet runs that had changes or failed. To use it:

  1. Install puppet-boundary as a module in your Puppet master's module path.

  2. Update the boundary_orgid and boundary_apikey variables in the boundary.yaml file with your Boundary connection details.

  3. Enable pluginsync and reports on your master and clients in puppet.conf

    report = true
    reports = boundary
    pluginsync = true
    report = true
    pluginsync = true
  4. Run the Puppet client and sync the report as a plugin

The boundary_meter type and provider is heavily based on work by Joe Williams and Ben Black from Boundary.
