We've probably all gone looking for the resolv.conf module, or managed a template just so we could disable PermitRootLogin, or grumbled a little at how the host provider works. What if rather than managing modules for these things, there was an idempotent type available? That is the goal of augeasproviders by the Hercules Team. By writing custom types and providers using augeas you can go back to defining your environment with a DSL, rather than managing templates and additional modules.

Greg is a Linux Engineer for Rackspace. An open source enthusiast by day and a fire performer by night, he has been working extensively with Augeas inside Puppet for the past two years, including contributions to the Augeasproviders module.

Transcript

  • 1. Replacing simple modules with custom Types and Providers Or Stop managing templates, and start managing your configs
  • 2. 2 Greg Swift Linux Admin/Engineer ~ 12 yrs Red Hat Certified Engineer ~ 6 yrs Augeas user ~6 yrs Puppet user ~ 3 yrs greg.swift@{rackspace.com,nytefyre.net} gplus.to/gregswift linkedin.com/gregoryswift github.com/{gregswift,rackergs} xaeth on Fedora, FreeNode, Twitter, and Ingress
  • 3. 3 Bit of time travel... •Past –An unpleasant reminder of configs past •Present –Tools available today that help •Future –What's next?
  • 4. 4 Stroll down memory lane
  • 5. 5 systl.conf # Controls the default maximum size of a message queue kernel.msgmnb = 65536
  • 6. 6 Lets change that value sed ­i 's/^(kernel.msgmnb = )([0­9]*)$/## Changing  for db configuration. Was:n## 12n199999/'  sysctl.conf
  • 7. 7 Looks good.. # Controls the default maximum size of a message queue ## Changing for db configuration. Was: ## kernel.msgmnb = 65536 kernel.msgmnb = 99999
  • 8. 8 But the next run? # Controls the default maximum size of a message queue ## Changing for db configuration. Was: ## ## Changing for db configuration. Was: ## kernel.msgmnb = 65536 kernel.msgmnb = 99999 ## Changing for db configuration. Was: ## kernel.msgmnb = 99999 kernel.msgmnb = 99999
  • 9. 9 That was then...
  • 10. 10 Templates... yay? •Great for 1 type of system... maybe even a couple •Supporting multiple OS releases or distributions?
  • 11. 11 Wouldn't it be nice? •Safe •Repeatable •Extensible •Multi-language
  • 12. 12 But that is a herculean task...
  • 13. 13 Meet team Hercules David Lutterkort (Now @ PuppetLabs) Raphaël Pinson Dominic Cleal Francis Giraldeau
  • 14. 14 and Augeas
  • 15. 15 What is it? •An API provided by a C library •A domain-specific language to describe configuration file formats, presented as lenses •Canonical tree representations of configuration files •A command line tool to manipulate configuration from the shell and shell scripts •Language bindings to do the same from your favorite scripting language
  • 16. 16 Lense all the things!

  • 19. 19 Our earlier example.. on Augeas augeas { 'set kernel.msgmnb per db vendor':   context => '/files/etc/sysctl.conf',   onlyif  => 'kernel.msgmnb != 99999',   changes => 'set kernel.msgmnb 99999', }
  • 20. 20 Making it re-usable define sysctl ($value) {   augeas { “set ${title} in sysctl.conf”:     context => '/files/etc/sysctl.conf',     onlyif  => “${title} != ${value}”,     changes => “set ${title} ${value}”,   } } sysctl { 'kernel.msgmnb':   value   => '99999', }
  • 21. 21 A more complex example.. define ssh_allowgroup ($ensure) {   if $ensure == present {       $match = '=='       $change = “set AllowGroups/01 ${title}”   } else {       $match = '!='       $change = 'rm AllowGroups/[.=${title}]”   }   augeas { “sshd_config/AllowGroups ${title}”:     context => '/files/etc/sshd_config',     onlyif  => “match AllowGroups/[.=${title}] size $match 0”,     changes => $change,   } } $sshd_default_groups = ['engineers', 'admins'] $sshd_allowed_groups = $::env ? {     /prod/    => $sshd_default_groups,     default   => concat($sshd_default_groups, ['devs']), } ssh_allowgroup { $sshd_allowed_groups:   ensure => present, }
  • 22. 22 Well I tried it once, but... •Lenses are hard to write •Xpathing is hard •Its just hard!
  • 23. 23 Make it easier!
  • 24. 24 Introducing AugeasProviders •Collection of custom types and providers •Written in native Ruby rather than Puppet's DSL •Utilizes bindings directly for flexibility •Heavily tested
  • 25. 25 Introducing AugeasProviders •Collection of custom types and providers •Written in native Ruby rather than Puppet's DSL •Utilizes bindings directly for flexibility •Heavily tested
  • 26. 26 And that example on AugeasProviders sysctl { 'kernel.msgmnb':   value   => '99999',   comment => 'recommended by db vendor' }
  • 27. 27 And the more complex example   $sshd_default_groups = ['engineers', 'admins']   $sshd_allowed_groups = $::env ? {     /prod/    => $sshd_default_groups,     default   => concat($sshd_default_groups, ['devs']),   }   sshd_config { 'AllowGroups':     value  => $sshd_allowed_groups,     notify => Service['sshd'],   }
  • 28. 28 What's it got? •host •mailalias •sshd_config •shellvars /etc/{defaults,sysconfig}/* •puppet's auth.conf (puppet_auth) •syslog.conf entries (rsyslog and sysklog!) •Grub and Grub2 kernel_parameter •And more!
  • 29. 29 Give it to me!
  • 30. 30 Load it up puppet module install domcleal/augeasproviders or git clone https://github.com/hercules­ team/augeasproviders
  • 31. 31 What about the future??
  • 32. 32 AugeasProviders next
  • 33. 33 What's changing? •Minimized duplication of most common patterns •Solid generic library for reuse-ability •Enables Augeas based providers in your modules
  • 34. 34 Contribute
  • 35. 35 What can you do? •Use it •Report bugs •Create new providers! –resolv.conf –systemd unit files –etc
  • 36. 36 Educate me!
  • 37. 37 Augeas training •Provided by camptocamp •http://camptocamp.com – Solutions->Infrastructure->Training •Fundamentals –Using augtool, XPath Augeas language, Augeas type in Puppet •Advanced – Develop using augeas libraries and advanced tree manipulation •Extending Augeas –Writing lenses and providers
