As I said in my previous email - I'd prefer it tied to 1.1.11 - which is
the only version which has zero problems on all the test platforms.

Namevars and new types


Hi,

I'm working on a new type for firehol rules, and I have some questions about
namevars.  If I have something like this (should be relatively self-evident):

firehol {
  interface => "eth0",
  command   => "server",
  service   => "ssh"
}

Is there any way to have the type auto-generate a name of "eth0-server-ssh" or
the like?

Also, can I define a "name=" method on the type so I can do something like this:

firehol { ["ssh", "http", "smtp"]:
  interface => "eth0",
  command   => "server"
}

and *still* have it come up with names like "eth0-server-ssh" and the like?

Thanks in advance, as usual!

Cheers,

Re: Namevars and new types


Ugh.

Okay, I had my head wrapped up in the type/provider stuff for so long, I forgot
that Puppet has... you know... other stuff... like defines... which exist to
solve exactly this problem.

*bangs head on table*

I've spent two days trying to fix my type.  That'll teach me to try to learn
something new. :-)

Cheers,

Eric

Disable loading of Rails feature?


Hey Everyone -

When using the puppet library on a server with Rails installed,
ActiveRecord and thus ActiveSupport are loaded even if the rails
feature isn't ever used. We're using some small pieces of
ActiveSupport as a part of the shadow_puppet gem, and if there are
multiple versions of ActiveSupport installed on the server this can
often lead to activation warnings like so:

Failed to load feature test for rails: can't activate activesupport (=
2.1.2, runtime), already activated activesupport-2.3.2

Is there any way to disable the loading of the Rails feature? A
cursory check of the feature class, etc, doesn't show that there is.
Just wanted to drop a note and check before I start hackin' on it.

Cheers -

Jesse

Re: Freshmeat updates


The updates I've added for Puppet on freshmeat.net has not gone
through yet.  When I submitted them, it said it should take less than
24 hours.  Maybe they're awaiting approval from loosifer.

Maybe I am late to the party but the right URL is:

Sure. The other one leaps out when browsing the index, should it
perhaps be just removed?

I assumed it was something someone linked to in the past and was
symlinked or something.

Storeconfigs performance


Hello.

While the queue development has been proceeding along (and I'll get a
patch set out to you all for code review before too much longer), we're
also looking at further improvements in the storeconfig performance.
The queue operation treats the symptoms by getting storeconfig
processing time out of puppetmasterd, but doesn't actually do much to
improve actual throughput.  To improve throughput, the storeconfig times
need to be lower.

Brice Figureau achieved some great improvements in 0.24.x via his
adjustments to how the data is pulled out of the database backend for
Ruby-space merge/comparison.  I've looked over those changes and feel
like further optimizations are going to be increasingly hard to come by,
as far as getting the same set of data loaded and manipulated is
concerned.  It may be possible to squeeze out another second somehow,
but the way forward with raw processing speed is non-obvious and
non-trivial.  That's how it goes when attempting to sync significant
sets of data; if you're dealing with hundreds or thousands of records
(which could be the case), doing it in one transaction with a lot of
back-and-forth between appserver and database server is Not Fun and very
definitely Not Snappy.  I/O considerations force you to compare the data
in some way, rather than happily rewriting everything, and the data
comparison is relatively slow and expensive (note that the most
expensive parts of storeconfigs, from my testing, has to do with
preparing hashes of resource parameters and tags for merging/comparing,
all pulled from the database; database operations themselves aren't all
that expensive here).

Weird.  Deleted though.
