DESCRIPTION

Manage sysctl via a sysctl LWRP.

Attributes

Name Value Description
default[:sysctl][:values] {} Hash Of Key Value pairs the attribute_driver recipe uses.
default[:sysctl][:config_file] rhel: "/etc/sysctl.conf" debian: "/etc/sysctl.d/99-chef.conf" The file to write values to.

Recipes

Name Description
attribute_driver.rb Reads attributes set in node[:sysctl][:values], and sets sysctl resources with the values
default.rb Simply sets up the resources needed to use the lwrp
library.rb Empty recipe if you want to avoid default, but still want to explicitly include (for whatever reason)

Sysctl LWRP

Attributes

Name Type Default Description
name String :name_attribute The key name. Defaults to the resource name i.e. sysctl "some.key"
value String, Fixnum, Integer The Value for this key
save boolean true save the setting back to the node data (default: false)

Actions

action default Description
:set yes Make sure the running state is set (default)
:write yes Write the config file (default)

Known Bugs

  • RHEL/CentOS 6 now have sysctl.d Directory, we should generate a config in this dir instead
  • only intended to be used on Linux

Example Usage

LWRP

Ensure running state, and write this key to sysctl.conf

sysctl "kernel.sysrq" do
   value 1
end

Check out [example/recipes/example.rb] 2 For more recipe examples.

ChefSpec Matchers

There are chefspec matchers in this cookbook to test your usage of the lwrp

    }
  }
}
