A check to monitor puppet agent runs
A small script with few dependencies to check the status of puppet agent runs
It is tested as a sensu check plugin, but also compatible with nagios/icinga/… due to the similar exit codes
The requirements are just:
- argparse (command line argument parsing)
- yaml (to read the puppet state files)
- six (python 2 and 3 compatibility)
The package is easily available on pypi and can be just installed with pip, this also includes the command line script
$ pip install check-puppet-agent
Currently there are no prebuilt RPM packages provided, but you can built them by yourself with some simple commands
$ git clone … $ cd check-puppet-agent $ python setup.py bdist_rpm
Note: The script is to run as puppet user or root, otherwise it is not able to read the required files
