NAME

Csistck - Perl system consistency check framework

SYNOPSIS

    use Csistck;
    
    sub sig_hup_mysql { $ENV{'MAINT_HUP_MYSQL'} = 1; }

    for (qw/a b/) {
        host "$_.example.com" => role('mysql');
    }

    host 'c' => role('mysql');
    
    role 'mysql' => 
        pkg({
            dpkg => 'mysql-server',
            emerge => 'mysql'
        }),
        template(
            '/etc/mysql/my.cnf',
            src => 'mysql/my.cnf', 
            mysql => {
                bind => '127.0.0.1',
                keysize => '1G'
            },
            mode => '0644',
            uid => 100,
            gid => 100,
            on_restart => \&sig_hup_mysql
        ),
        script('services.sh');
            
    check;

The script can then be called directly, using command line arguments below

DESCRIPTION

Csistck is a small Perl framework for writing scripts to maintain system configuration and consistency. The focus of csistck is to stay lightweight, simple, and flexible.

EXTENDING ROLES

Roles can be defined using the role keyword syntax, however a more flexible method is to extend a new object from Csistck::Role:

    use Csistck;
    use base 'Csistck::Role';

    sub defaults {
        my $self = shift;
        $self->{config} = '/etc/example.conf';
    }

    sub tests {
        my $self = shift;
        $self->add(pkg({
            dpkg => 'test-server',
            pkg_info => 'net-test'
        }),
        template(
            $self->{config},
            src => 'files/example.conf',
            example => $self
        );

    }

    1;

See Csistck::Role for information on extending roles

METHODS

host($host, $checks)

Add tests to host $host test array. Tests are Csistck::Test blessed references, code references, or arrays of either. To process host tests, use check().

role($role, $checks)

Define a weak role. Constructed similar to a host check, however roles are not called directly, rather they are used to define groups of common tests that can be used by multiple hosts.

See "EXTENDING ROLES" above for an object-based style of defining roles, which allows for passing role configuration.

check($target)

Runs processing on $target. If $target is undef, then look up the system's full hostname. If $target is a string, use that string for a hostname lookup. If $target is a Csistck::Test reference, a coderef, or an arrayref, then process that object directly. This is useful for writing scripts where hostname is not important.

EXPORTED METHODS

option($name, $value)

Set option to specified value.

Available Options

  • pkg_type [string]

    Set default package type

  • domain_name [string]

    Set default domain name to append to hosts

host($hostname, [@tests]);

Append test or array of tests to host definition. Most examples use the fat comma delimiter syntax, however this is a subjective choice.

    host('hostname', noop(1));
    host 'hostname' => noop(1), noop(1);
    host 'hostname' => noop(0);

Returns a reference to the host object.

role($rolename, [@tests]);

Append test or array of tests to role definition.

    role 'test' => noop(0);
    host 'hostname' => role('test');

Returns a reference to the role object.

noop($return)

"No operation" test, used only for testing or placeholders.

    role 'test' => noop(1);

file($target, :$src, :$mode, :$uid, :$gid)

Copy file $src to $target, setting additional options with named arguments such as mode and uid.

    role 'test' => file(
        '/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf',
        src => 'lighttpd/lighttpd.conf',
        mode => '0644'
    );

See Csistck::Test::File

template($target, :$src, :$mode, :$uid, :$gid, [:$args])

Process file $src as a Template Toolkit template, output to path $target. Optional named arguments can be used to alter the mode, uid, etc. All parameters passed into the Csistck::Test::Template object are available in the actual template, so any additional named arguments are available in the template using the argument's name -- these arguments should be hasrefs.

    role 'test' => template(
        '/etc/motd',
        src => 'sys/motd',
        foo => { bar => 1 },
        uid => 0,
        gid => 0,
        mode => '0640'
    );

See Csistck::Test::Template

script($script, [@arguments])

Call script with specified arguments

    role 'test' => script("apache2/mod-check", "rewrite");

See Csistck::Test::Script

pkg($package, [$type])

Check for package using system package manager. The $package argument may be specified as a string, or as a hashref to specify package names for multiple package managers. The package manager will be automatically detected if no package manager is specified.

    option 'pkg_type' => 'dpkg';
    role 'test' => 
        pkg("lighttpd", 'dpkg'),
        pkg({
            dpkg => 'snmp-server',
            pkg_info => 'net-snmp'
        });

See Csistck::Test::Pkg for more information

SCRIPT USAGE

Scripts based on Csistck will run in an interactive mode by default. The following command line options are recognized in a csistck based script

  • --[no]repair

    Automate repair mode, do not run in interactive mode.

  • --[no]verbose

    Toggle verbose reporting of events

  • --[no]debug

    Toggle debug reporting of events

  • --[no]quiet

    Toggle event reporting of errors
