yum-zabbix Cookbook

The yum-zabbix cookbook takes over management of the default repositoryids that ship with CentOS systems. It allows attribute manipulation of zabbix, zabbix-non-supported

Requirements

Platforms

  • RHEL/CentOS and derivatives

Chef

  • Chef 11+

Cookbooks

  • yum version 3.2.0 or higher
  • yum-epel

Attributes

The following attributes are set by default

default['yum']['zabbix']['repositoryid'] = 'zabbix'
default['yum']['zabbix']['enabled'] = true
default['yum']['zabbix']['managed'] = true
default['yum']['zabbix']['gpgkey'] = 'http://repo.zabbix.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-ZABBIX'
default['yum']['zabbix']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['zabbix']['description'] = 'Zabbix Official Repository - $basearch'
default['yum']['zabbix']['baseurl'] = 'http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/3.0/rhel/6/$basearch'
default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['repositoryid'] = 'zabbix-non-supported'
default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['enabled'] = false
default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['managed'] = false
default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['gpgkey'] = 'http://repo.zabbix.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-ZABBIX'
default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['description'] = 'Zabbix Official Repository non-supported - $basearch'
default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['baseurl'] = 'http://repo.zabbix.com/non-supported/rhel/6/$basearch/'

Recipes

  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource
  • parameters. The following is an example a resource generated by the
  • recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'zabbix' do
    baseurl 'http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/3.0/rhel/6/$basearch/'
    description 'Zabbix Official Repository - $basearch'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey 'http://repo.zabbix.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-ZABBIX'
  end

Usage Example

To disable the zabbix repository through a Role or Environment definition

default_attributes(
  'yum' => {
    'zabbix' => {
      'enabled' => false
    }
  }
)

Uncommonly used repositoryids are not managed by default. This is speeds up integration testing pipelines by avoiding yum-cache builds that nobody cares about. To enable the zabbix-non-supported repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['managed'] = true
node.default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['enabled'] = true
include_recipe 'yum-zabbix'

More Examples

Point the base and debuginfo repositories at an internally hosted server.

node.default['yum']['zabbix']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['zabbix']['baseurl'] = 'https://internal.example.com/centos/6/os/x86_64'
node.default['yum']['zabbix']['sslverify'] = false
node.default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['baseurl'] = 'https://internal.example.com/centos/6/updates/x86_64'
node.default['yum']['zabbix-non-supported']['sslverify'] = false

include_recipe 'yum-zabbix'
