What is Puppet?

Puppet is written in Ruby language and was developed by Puppet Labs, founded by Luke Kanies in 2005. Currently Puppet is supported by Puppet Labs and it is licensed under GPLv2 until version 2.7.0 and Apache 2.0 license after that. Puppet is involved in scripting of deployment of production system.

Puppet is used to control an entire server starting from installation, configuration, managing, and maintaining server. Puppet can manage thousands of hosts. Install Puppet agent on hosts and then define the hosts in Puppet master server. All other tasks like installation, configuration, and so on will be done by Puppet automatically.

Puppet can be used for quick and fast deployment of business applications both on-premise and in the cloud as it can quickly scale from tens of servers to thousands.

Puppet Overview

How does Puppet Works

Puppet is a declarative language which means the result needed is to be configured inside of Puppet. Puppet will then define the desired infrastructure and simulate the configuration once before executing them. After enforcing the action it would then report any differences in the actual and desired state which can be then resolved.

As system administrators acquire more and more systems to manage, automation of mundane tasks is increasingly important. Rather than develop in-house scripts, it is desirable to share a system that everyone can use, and invest in tools that can be used regardless of one’s employer. Certainly doing things manually doesn’t scale. Puppet has been developed to help the sysadmin community move to building and sharing mature tools that avoid the duplication of everyone solving the same problem.

It does so in two ways: It provides a powerful framework to simplify the majority of the technical tasks that sysadmins need to perform

-The sysadmin work is written as code in Puppet’s custom language which is shareable just like any other code.

-This means that your work as a sysadmin can get done much faster, because you can have Puppet handle most or all of the details, and you can download code from other sysadmins to help you get done even faster. The majority of Puppet implementations use at least one or two modules developed by someone else, and there are already hundreds of modules developed and shared by the community.

Puppet Features

Idempotency,  One big difference between Puppet and most other tools is that Puppet configurations are idempotent, meaning they can safely be run multiple times. Once you develop your configuration, your machines will apply the configuration often – by default, every 30 minutes – and Puppet will only make any changes to the system if the system state does not match the configured state. If you tell the system to operate in no-op (“aka dry-run”), mode, using the –noop argument to one of the Puppet tools, puppet will guarantee that no work happens on your system. Similarly, if any changes do happen when running without that flag, puppet will ensure those changes are logged. Because of this, you can use Puppet to manage a machine throughout its life cycle – from initial installation, to ongoing upgrades, and finally to end-of-life, where you move services elsewhere. Unlike system install tools like Sun’s Jumpstart or Red Hat’s Kickstart, Puppet configurations can keep machines up to date for years, rather than just building them correctly only the first time and then neccessitating a rebuild. Puppet users usually do just enough with their host install tools to boostrap Puppet, then they use Puppet to do everything else.

Cross Platform, Puppet’s Resource Abstraction Layer (RAL) allows you to focus on the parts of the system you care about, ignoring implementation details like command names, arguments, and file formats – your tools should treat all users the same, whether the user is stored in NetInfo or /etc/passwd. We call these system entities resources. Ralsh, listed in the Tools section is a fun way to try out the RAL before you get too deep into Puppet language.

Model & Graph Based

Resource Types – The concept of each resource (like service, file, user, group, etc) is modelled as a “type”. Puppet decouples the definition from how that implementation is fulfilled on a particular operating system, for instance, a Linux user versus an OS X user can be talked about in the same way but are implemented differently inside of Puppet.

Providers are the fulfillment of a resource. For instance, for the package type, both ‘yum’ and ‘apt’ are valid ways to manage packages. Sometimes more than one provider will be available on a particular platform, though each platform always has a default provider. There are currently 17 providers for the package type.

Modifying the System

Puppet resource providers are what are responsible for directly managing the bits on disk. You do not directly modify a system from Puppet language – you use the language to specify a resource, which then modifies the system. This way puppet language behaves exactly the same way in a centrally managed server setup as it does locally without a server. Rather than tacking a couple of lines onto the end of your fstab, you use the mount type to create a new resource that knows how to modify the fstab, or NetInfo, or wherever mount information is kept. Resources have attributes called ‘properties’ which change the way a resource is managed. For instance, users have an attribute that specicies whether the home directory should be created. ‘Metaparams’ are another special kind of attribute, those exist on all resources. This include things like the log level for the resource, whether the resource should be in noop mode so it never modifies the system, and the relationships between resources.

Resource Relationships

Puppet has a system of modelling relationships between resources – what resources should be evaluated before or after one another. They also are used to determine whether a resource needs to respond to changes in another resource (such as if a service needs to restart if the configuration file for the service has changed). This ordering reduces un-neccessary commands, such as avoiding restarting a service if the configuration has not changed. Because the system is graph based, it’s actually possible to generate a diagram (from Puppet) of the relationships between all of your resources.

Puppet Certification

The Puppet Professional certification is a meaningful way to validate your system administration experience using Puppet.

  • Having Puppet certification distinguishes you as an expert.
  • For Puppet certification, you need not go to a test center, as the certification is available online.
  • To become a Puppet Certified Professional, or PCP, you must pass a technical certification exam offered worldwide through Pearson VUE.
  • You need to register yourself at http://pearsonvue.com/puppet/ to give your Puppet Certified Professional Exam.
