Dedicated user roles

  • None

Non-distribution packages and modifications

The Puppet agent package and a few dependencies are installed from the official Puppet APT repository because the versions in Debian are too old to use modern Puppet features.

Risk assessments on critical packages

The system provides no public services besides an Icinga2 agent that executes commands sent from Monitor.

Critical Configuration items

The system configuration is managed via Puppet profiles. There should be no configuration items outside of the CAcert Git repository cacert-puppet.

Keys and X.509 certificates

  • None

Tasks

Add a service to be checked by extmon

Service monitoring is configured in the CAcert Git repository cacert-icinga2-conf_d.

All checks for services on hosts with the following block will be executed by extmon:

vars.external = true
