Logrotate module for Puppet

Build Status

A more Puppety way of managing logrotate configs. Where possible, as many of the configuration options have remained the same with a couple of notable exceptions:

  • Booleans are now used instead of the <something>/no<something> pattern. e.g. copy == copy => true, nocopy == copy => false.
  • create and it's three optional arguments have been split into seperate parameters documented below.
  • Instead of 'daily', 'weekly', 'monthly' or 'yearly', there is a rotate_every parameter (see documentation below).

logrotate::rule

The only thing you'll need to deal with, this type configures a logrotate rule. Using this type will automatically include a private class that will install and configure logrotate for you.

namevar         - The String name of the rule.
path            - The path String to the logfile(s) to be rotated.
ensure          - The desired state of the logrotate rule as a String.  Valid
                  values are 'absent' and 'present' (default: 'present').
compress        - A Boolean value specifying whether the rotated logs should
                  be compressed (optional).
compresscmd     - The command String that should be executed to compress the
                  rotated logs (optional).
compressext     - The extention String to be appended to the rotated log files
                  after they have been compressed (optional).
compressoptions - A String of command line options to be passed to the
                  compression program specified in `compresscmd` (optional).
copy            - A Boolean specifying whether logrotate should just take a 
                  copy of the log file and not touch the original (optional).
copytruncate    - A Boolean specifying whether logrotate should truncate the
                  original log file after taking a copy (optional).
create          - A Boolean specifying whether logrotate should create a new
                  log file immediately after rotation (optional).
create_mode     - An octal mode String logrotate should apply to the newly
                  created log file if create => true (optional).
create_owner    - A username String that logrotate should set the owner of the
                  newly created log file to if create => true (optional).
create_group    - A String group name that logrotate should apply to the newly
                  created log file if create => true (optional).
dateext         - A Boolean specifying whether rotated log files should be
                  archived by adding a date extension rather just a number
                  (optional).
dateformat      - The format String to be used for `dateext` (optional).
                  Valid specifiers are '%Y', '%m', '%d' and '%s'.
delaycompress   - A Boolean specifying whether compression of the rotated
                  log file should be delayed until the next logrotate run
                  (optional).
extension       - Log files with this extension String are allowed to keep it
                  after rotation (optional).
ifempty         - A Boolean specifying whether the log file should be rotated
                  even if it is empty (optional).
mail            - The email address String that logs that are about to be 
                  rotated out of existence are emailed to (optional).
mailfirst       - A Boolean that when used with `mail` has logrotate email the
