A check to monitor puppet agent runs

Project description

wywygmbh/check-puppet-agent

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

Installation

dependencies

The requirements are just:

  • argparse (command line argument parsing)
  • yaml (to read the puppet state files)
  • six (python 2 and 3 compatibility)

pip

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

RPM

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

Usage

Note: The script is to run as puppet user or root, otherwise it is not able to read the required files

$ check-puppet-agent
[CRITICAL] applying catalog compiled at 2015-12-06 21:50:21 (1 days 20 hours 3 minutes 23 seconds ago)
[      OK] last run on 2015-12-08 17:36:19 (17 minutes 25 seconds ago)
[      OK] => last run took 11 seconds

Sample if the agent is disabled by puppet agent --disable "test"

$ check-puppet-agent
[ WARNING] puppet agent is disabled - reason: test
[CRITICAL] applying catalog compiled at 2015-12-06 21:50:21 (1 days 20 hours 4 minutes 53 seconds ago)
[      OK] last run on 2015-12-08 17:36:19 (18 minutes 55 seconds ago)
[      OK] => last run took 11 seconds
