Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

syslog_handler Cookbook

Report and Error handler for Opscode Chef to log the basic essential information.

Example output from an example syslog log file:

Aug  2 17:04:05 web33-x9 chef[13072]: status=success total_resources=171 updated_resources=6 elapsed_time=117.646907

Based roughly on the graphite_handler code from Ian Meyer, Peter Donald, et al.

Requirements

As usual for handlers, the chef_handler cookbook is mandatory (it must be able to be referenced, so in the Chef Server case, it must be uploaded to the server).

Attributes

  • ['chef_client']['handler']['syslog']['identity'] : Syslog lines show as this identity. Type: String. Defaut: 'chef'.

  • ['chef_client']['handler']['syslog']['facility'] : Syslog under this syslog facility. Type: Ruby variable (constant from Syslog::Constants). Default: Syslog::LOG_DAEMON

  • ['chef_client']['handler']['syslog']['fail_priority'] : Syslog as this priority on Chef run failure. Type: Ruby variable (constant from Syslog::Constants). Default: Syslog::LOG_ERR

  • ['chef_client']['handler']['syslog']['success_priority'] : Syslog as this priority on Chef run success. Type: Ruby variable (constant from Syslog::Constants). Default: Syslog::LOG_INFO

Usage

Just include syslog_handler very early (if not first) in your node's run_list:

{
  "name":"my_node",
  "run_list": [
    "recipe[syslog_handler]"
  ]
}
