1.9 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.

tomitakussaari/snmp_tasks_rhel — version 1.0.1 Feb 20th 2013

SNMP tasks Puppet Forge module for RHEL


  • Add an HTTP smoke test into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
  • Add a file-max-age test into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf


puppet module install tomitakussaari/snmp_tasks_rhel


Monitoring HTTP services

# In site.pp
node "superserver" {
  # Add smoke test task for an HTTP application
  snmp_tasks_rhel::http_smoke_test { "my-web-app":
    http_port            => 80,
    smoke_test_path      => "/",
    tasks_home_directory => "/opt/monitoring-tasks"

The above snippet creates a Bash script /opt/monitoring-tasks/ Furthermore, it will add the script into /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and restart Service['net-snmp'].

By default, the smoke test will hit localhost. You can change the host by adding the parameter http_hostname_or_ip.

Monitoring file timestamps

# In site.pp
node "superserver" {
  snmp_tasks_rhel::file_max_age { "cron-job-monitor":
    file_to_test         => "/opt/logs/cron-job-timestamp",
    max_age_in_days      => 1,
    error_message        => "Cronjob has not run within 1 days",
    tasks_home_directory => "/opt/monitoring-tasks"

The above snippet creates a Bash script that will exit with code 1 if the file /opt/logs/cron-job-timestamp is more than one days old. Before exit, it will print the error_message.


This Puppet module depends on tomitakussaari/snmp_rhel.
