A web-based reports application for Puppet
When moving to postgres this broke specs, presumably due to the use of implicit ordering that was happening on other dbs.
Puppet-Reporter tool for viewing and manipulating Puppet Report data * This is pre-alpha quality software. Use at own risk. SETUP: - download Sphinx search engine 0.9.8-rc2 (http://sphinxsearch.com/downloads/sphinx-0.9.8-rc2.tar.gz), build and install - install mysql gem. Method 1: - git clone Facter from reductive labs and install it - git clone Puppet (0.24.x branch) from reductive labs Method 2: - 'rake build_setup' will install vendored copies of puppet and facter for local testing purposes. - copy Puppet-Reporter/rails/config/*.example to the non-example filenames (e.g. database.yml.example -> database.yml) and make any necessary changes - cd into Puppet-Reporter/rails - RAILS_ENV=development rake db:create - RAILS_ENV=test rake db:create - RAILS_ENV=production rake db:create - rake db:migrate - rake db:test:prepare - rake spec (with any luck these should all pass) - load report data: - untar Puppet-Reporter/reports.tgz to Puppet-Reporter/reports/ - time find ../reports -type f -name '*.yaml' | xargs ruby script/runner script/import_yaml_reports.rb (and go get lunch :-) - rake ts:index (index the database for searching) - rake ts:start (start the search daemon) - ruby script/server - connect to http://localhost:3000/ - if you want to load data from a running Puppet instance - update the connection settings in rails/puppet/report/puppet_reporter.rb to point to where your Puppet-Reporter instance can be reached. - review and update the environment variable settings at the top of the 'go' script - 'sh -x go' and see what happens ---------- Notes to sel(f|ves): - a (fully pending) spec is in place describing the data available in the Puppet report objects. How to install ruby rrd bindings, if we need them in the future: - install rrdtool and Ruby RRD bindings. On OS X this looks like: % sudo port install rrdtool # purely for getting the dependencies installed % sudo port uninstall rrdtool % wget http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/pub/rrdtool-1.2.27.tar.gz % tar xfz rrdtool-1.2.27.tar.gz % cd rrdtool-1.2.27/ % ./configure --prefix=/opt/local && make && sudo make install % cd bindings/ruby % ruby extconf.rb --with-rrd-lib=/opt/local/lib % make clean && make && sudo make install % ruby test.rb # with any luck this will run successfully and you'll get a test.png in the directory
