Ansible Role: node exporter
Deploy prometheus node exporter using ansible.
- Ansible >= 2.6 (It might work on previous versions, but we cannot guarantee it)
- gnu-tar on Mac deployer host (
brew install gnu-tar)
All variables which can be overridden are stored in defaults/main.yml file as well as in table below.
||0.18.1||Node exporter package version. Also accepts latest as parameter.|
||"0.0.0.0:9100"||Address on which node exporter will listen|
||"node-exp"||System group used to run node_exporter|
||"node-exp"||System user used to run node_exporter|
||[ systemd, textfile ]||List of additionally enabled collectors. It adds collectors to those enabled by default|
||||List of disabled collectors. By default node_exporter disables collectors listed here.|
||"/var/lib/node_exporter"||Directory used by the Textfile Collector. To get permissions to write metrics in this directory, users must be in
Use it in a playbook as follows:
- hosts: all roles: - cloudalchemy.node-exporter
The preferred way of locally testing the role is to use Docker and molecule (v2.x). You will have to install Docker on your system. See "Get started" for a Docker package suitable to for your system. We are using tox to simplify process of testing on multiple ansible versions. To install tox execute:
pip3 install tox
To run tests on all ansible versions (WARNING: this can take some time)
To run a custom molecule command on custom environment with only default test scenario:
tox -e py35-ansible28 -- molecule test -s default
For more information about molecule go to their docs.
If you would like to run tests on remote docker host just specify
DOCKER_HOST variable before running tox tests.
Combining molecule and travis CI allows us to test how new PRs will behave when used with multiple ansible versions and multiple operating systems. This also allows use to create test scenarios for different role configurations. As a result we have a quite large test matrix which will take more time than local testing, so please be patient.
