UTOSC 2010 Day 2: Custom Puppet Facts

After a delicious trip to Pirate O's for lunch, it was back for a presentation by Joseph Hall on custom Puppet facts. Even ignoring the fact that I came in late, a lot of this was way over my head. It reminded me that I would do well to invest some more time into my Puppet system as there are many many more things I could do with it. If anybody has some free time I could borrow, please let me know.

Miscellaneous Notes:

  • manage fstab
  • hosts
  • require "facter"
  • Facter.add
  • external node classifier. use any language as long as output is yaml
  • classifier runs on puppetmaster
  • custom facts run on client
  • http://docs.puppetlabs.com/guides/external_nodes.html
  • subscribe/notify
