Description

Puppet and Nagios have been two of the most useful tools for my small business; puppet allowing me to manage many servers and services using Ruby to write my configs, and nagios allowing me to monitor the servers and services. This is a simple guide to setup something similar to the system I have on FreeBSD 9.2.

This will set up 2 web applications that can be viewed in any modern web browser at:

The first will be the puppet dashboard and the second will be the nagios dashboard.

Prepare the Server

  • Once the server baseline has been installed and root access has been obtained make sure the server is up to date:
    pkg update && upgrade
    portsnap fetch extract
    
  • Portmaster will be useful for upgrading packages:
    cd /usr/local/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster
    make install clean
    pkg2ng
    

Install MariaDB server

  • Start by installing the mariadb-server and mariadb-client packages:
    portmaster databases/mariadb55-{server,client}
    

Configure MariaDB server

  • Copy a base MariaDB configuration to use
    cp /usr/local/share/mysql/my-small.cnf /var/db/mysql/my.cnf
    
  • Tuning: Copy one of the default config files and change the max packet size to allow for the 17 MB data rows that Dashboard can occasionally send:
    vi /var/db/mysql/my.cnf
    
    • and modify max_allowed_packet to 32M
      max_allowed_packet = 32M
      
  • Enable and start MariaDB
    echo 'mysql_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    service mysql-server start
    
  • Prepare Database for use by running the secure installation. Choose a root password and answer yes to all questions.
    mysql_secure_installation
    

Create MariaDB Databases and Users

  • Login to MariaDB and create appropriate databases and users.
    mysql -u root -p
    
    • and run the following SQL queries to create the puppetmaster database and user:
      CREATE DATABASE dashboard_production CHARACTER SET utf8;
      
      CREATE USER 'puppetmaster'@'127.0.0.1' IDENTIFIED BY 'SecretPuppetMasterPassword';
      
      GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON puppetmaster.* TO 'puppetmaster'@'127.0.0.1';
      
      flush privileges;
      
    • and run the following SQL queries to create the puppet dashboard database and user:
      CREATE DATABASE dashboard_production CHARACTER SET utf8;
      
      CREATE USER 'dashboard'@'127.0.0.1' IDENTIFIED BY 'SuperSecretPassword';
      
      GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON dashboard_production.* TO 'dashboard'@'127.0.0.1';
      
      flush privileges;
      
    • and run the following SQL queries to create the nagios database and user:
      CREATE DATABASE nagios CHARACTER SET utf8;
      
      CREATE USER 'nagios'@'127.0.0.1' IDENTIFIED BY 'SecretNagiosPassword';
      
      GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON nagios.* TO 'nagios'@'127.0.0.1';
      
      flush privileges;
      

Install Puppet Master

  • Install the puppet package
    portmaster sysutils/puppet devel/rubygem-rake sysutils/rubygem-bundler databases/rubygem-activerecord databases/rubygem-sqlite3 databases/rubygem-activerecord-mysql-adapter textproc/libxslt devel/git www/node
    
  • Enable puppet in /etc/rc.conf:
    echo 'puppet_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    

Puppet Initial Testing

  • At this point, Puppet needs to be started so that all its SSL keys can be generated. This gives the chance to test that Puppet does work before anything else gets stacked on as well as ensures the SSL keys referenced by Nginx's config file are generated and in place before that step.
    service puppetmaster onestart
    
  • On client.example.com - start Puppet on the client system
    service puppet onestart
    
    • Or
      puppet agent -vt --waitforcert 60
      
  • On puppet.example.com - sign client.example.com's SSL key on the Puppetmaster
    puppet cert sign client.example.com
    
  • On client.example.com - Run a test on the client to ensure it works and do a onestop afterwards
    puppet agent --test
    service puppet onestop
    
  • NOTE: I encountered a problem while migrating the Admin node, the new server uses a newer version of Puppet, and broke the fileserver feature. To work around this:
    1. In /usr/local/etc/puppet/fileserver.conf put the name of your mount point, the path, and an allow * directive.:
      [files]
        path /usr/local/etc/puppet/files
        allow *
      
    2. In /usr/local/etc/puppet/auth.conf:
      Use a regular expression path to match both the file_metadata and file_content endpoints followed by the name of your custom mount point. Then, use any combination of allow and allow_ip directives to control access.
      path ~ ^/file_(metadata|content)/files/
      auth yes
      allow /^(.+\.)?example.com$/
      allow_ip 192.168.100.0/24
      

Configure Puppet Master

  • Configure your [puppetmasterd] section to reflect these settings:
    vi /usr/local/etc/puppet/puppet.conf
    
    • And add/modify the following:
      [puppetmasterd]
      storeconfigs = true
      dbadapter = mysql
      dbuser = puppetmaster
      dbpassword = SecretPuppetMasterPassword
      dbserver = localhost
      dbsocket = /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
      
  • To optimize some often run Puppet queries on your MySQL database, log in to the MariaDB server:
    mysql -u root -p
    
    • And run the following to create the index:
      create index exported_restype_title on resources (exported, restype, title(50));
      

Install Puppet Dashboard

Now its time to install Puppet Dashboard, a web frontend to display puppet reports.

  • Install puppet-dashboard from git
    cd /usr/local/www
    git clone git://github.com/sodabrew/puppet-dashboard.git
    
  • Manually create the 'puppet-dashboard' user and group:
    pw groupadd -n puppet-dashboard -g 800
    pw useradd -n puppet-dashboard -c "Puppet Dashboard,,," -u 800 -g puppet-dashboard -s /usr/sbin/nologin
    
  • Then provide the required permissions to /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard
    chown -R puppet-dashboard:puppet-dashboard /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard
    

Configure Puppet Dashboard

  • Copy the example database YAML file and update with database information:
    cd /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard/config
    cp database.yml.example database.yml
    
  • Then edit the database.yml with the corrected information; make sure to replace the password and host:
    vi database.yml 
    
    • and modify the following parameter accordingly:
      production:
        database: dashboard_production
        username: dashboard
        password: SuperSecretPassword
        encoding: utf8
        adapter: mysql2
      
  • Change the ownership and harden the permissions:
    chown puppet-dashboard:puppet-dashboard database.yml
    chmod 660 database.yml
    
  • Copy the example settings YAML file, no changes needed:
    cd /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard/config
    cp settings.yml.example settings.yml
    chown puppet-dashboard:puppet-dashboard settings.yml
    chmod 660 settings.yml
    
  • Fix shebang line in External Node Classifier Script.
    sed -i '' -e 's/#! \/usr\/bin\/ruby/#!\/usr\/local\/bin\/ruby/' /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard/bin/external_node
    
  • Install gems required in the 'Gemfile' via the Rubygem Bundler. If the postgresql gem bundles is required additional dependencies are needed:
    cd /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard
    bundle install --path vendor/bundle --without postgresql
    
  • Generate secret_token. Cleanup any errors and the default token after generating the new one.
    echo "secret_token: `bundle exec rake secret`" >> config/settings.yml
    vi config/settings.yml
    

Setting up the database for Puppet Dashboard

  • At this point the database was already installed with some blank tables. We need to run rake to finish the process with the database structure needed:
    cd /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard
    env RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:setup
    

Testing That Dashboard is Working

  • Run Dashboard using Ruby's built-in WEBrick server to validate functionality. It will be available at http://puppet.example.com:3000
    cd /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard
    su -m puppet-dashboard -c 'bundle exec rails server'
    
  • Before going into a production environment, Dashboard 2.0 must precompile assets for production:
    env RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake assets:precompile
    
  • Chown any files created up until now to the right owner:
    chown -R puppet-dashboard:puppet-dashboard /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard
    

Configuring Puppet

All agent nodes have to be configured to submit reports to the master. The master has to be configured to send reports to Dashboard. If you already have a working Puppet installation you can configure it to distribute the updated puppet.conf to your hosts.

  • puppet.conf (on each agent)
    [agent]
      report = true
    
  • puppet.conf (on the Puppetmaster)
    [master]
      reports = store, http
      reporturl = http://puppet.example.com:3000/reports/upload
      node_terminus = exec
      external_nodes = /usr/bin/env PUPPET_DASHBOARD_URL=http://puppet.example.com:3000 /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard/bin/external_node
    

    li
  • Testing Puppet's Connection to Dashboard. A new background task should show in the Dashboard UI at http://puppet.example.com:3000
    puppet agent --test
    
  • Dashboard ships a worker process manager under script/delayed_job. It can manually start delayed jobs via the following command:
    su -m puppet-dashboard -c 'env RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec script/delayed_job -p dashboard -n 2 -m start'
    

Delayed Job Worker Init Script

However, rather than manually triggering background workers, this rc script will accomplish the same thing and ensure the background jobs get started on the next reboot.

  • Create puppet dashboard FreeBSD init script:
    vi /usr/local/etc/rc.d/dashboard_workers
    
    • and add the following
      #!/bin/sh
      
      # PROVIDE: dashboard_workers
      # REQUIRE: LOGIN
      # KEYWORD: shutdown
      
      # By default dashboard_workers uses flags '-n 1' for 1 worker.  This should be
      # adjusted to the number of CPU cores.
      dashboard_workers_enable=${dashboard_workers_enable:-"NO"}
      dashboard_workers_flags=${dashboard_workers_flags:-"-n 1"}
      # The default rails environment is set to production
      dashboard_workers_env=${dashboard_workers_env:-"/usr/bin/env PATH=${PATH}:/usr/local/bin RAILS_ENV=production"}
      # The default user is set to puppet-dashboard and install location is set to
      # /usr/local/share/puppet-dashboard.
      dashboard_workers_user=${dashboard_workers_user:-"puppet-dashboard"}
      dashboard_workers_chdir=${dashboard_workers_chdir:-"/usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard"}
      
      . /etc/rc.subr
      
      name="dashboard_workers" 
      rcvar="dashboard_workers_enable" 
      load_rc_config $name
      extra_commands="reload run zap status" 
      
      # All commands call the same function and strip the fast|one|quiet prefix
      # to deliver to the bundler.
      reload_cmd="f_dashboard_workers reload" 
      restart_cmd="f_dashboard_workers restart" 
      run_cmd="f_dashboard_workers run" 
      start_cmd="f_dashboard_workers start" 
      status_cmd="f_dashboard_workers status" 
      stop_cmd="f_dashboard_workers stop" 
      zap_cmd="f_dashboard_workers zap" 
      
      # Use the function's ARVG $1 as the bundler program's '-m' flag
      f_dashboard_workers() {
          cd $dashboard_workers_chdir && \
          su -m "$dashboard_workers_user" \
              -c "${dashboard_workers_env} bundle exec script/delayed_job ${rc_flags} -p dashboard -m $1" || \
          echo "Failed to $1 dashboard_workers" 
      }
      
      run_rc_command "$1" 
      
    • And make it executable:
      chmod +x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/dashboard_workers
      
  • With that in place, we need to override the defaults and enable the script along with setting '-n 4' workers to match the number of processor cores and ensure it's ready for a production workload.
    echo 'dashboard_workers_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'dashboard_workers_flags="-n 4"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    service dashboard_workers start
    

Puppet Dashboard on Nginx with Passenger

  • Install Nginx with Passenger
    portmaster www/nginx
    

    NOTE: Make sure to enable [X]PASSENGER during the nginx configuration.
  • Install the Passenger gem:
    portmaster www/rubygem-passenger
    

    NOTE: Make sure to enable NGINX when running make config
  • Create a configuration directory to make managing individual server blocks easier
    mkdir /usr/local/etc/nginx/conf.d
    
  • Configuring Nginx with Passenger, edit the main nginx configuration file:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf
    
    • And add/modify the following
      user  www www;
      worker_processes  4;
      error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log notice;
      pid        /var/run/nginx.pid;
      
      events {
        worker_connections  1024;
      }
      
      http {
        passenger_root /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.1/gems/passenger-5.0.4;
        passenger_ruby /usr/local/bin/ruby;
        passenger_max_pool_size 15;
        passenger_pool_idle_time 300;
        #passenger_spawn_method direct; # Uncomment on Ruby 1.8 for ENC to work
      
        include       mime.types;
        default_type  application/octet-stream;
        sendfile      on;
        tcp_nopush    on;
        keepalive_timeout  65;
        tcp_nodelay        on;
      
        # Load config files from the /etc/nginx/conf.d directory
        include /usr/local/etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
      }
      
  • Then add a default site server block:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf
    
    • Add the following:
      server {
        listen 80 default;
        server_name _;
      
        index index.html index.php;
        root /usr/local/www;
      
        # IP and IP ranges which should get access
        allow 10.0.0.0/24;
        allow 10.1.0.1;
        # all else will be denied
        deny all;
      
        # basic HTTP auth
        auth_basic "Restricted";
        auth_basic_user_file htpasswd;
      
        location ~ \.cgi$ {
          try_files $uri =404;
          include fastcgi_params;
          fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap/fcgiwrap.sock;
          fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
          fastcgi_param REMOTE_USER $remote_user;
        }
      
        location ~ \.php$ {
          try_files $uri =404;
          include fastcgi_params;
          fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
          fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        }
      }
      
  • And create a puppet master server block:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nagios/conf.d/puppetmaster.conf
    
    • And add the following:
      server {
        listen       8140 ssl;
        server_name  puppet.example.com;
      
        passenger_enabled          on;
        passenger_set_header       HTTP_X_CLIENT_DN $ssl_client_s_dn;
        passenger_set_header       HTTP_X_CLIENT_VERIFY $ssl_client_verify;
        passenger_user             puppet;
        passenger_group            puppet;
        access_log                 /var/log/nginx/puppet_access.log;
      
        root                       /usr/local/etc/puppet/rack/public;
        ssl_certificate            /var/puppet/ssl/certs/puppet.example.com.pem;
        ssl_certificate_key        /var/puppet/ssl/private_keys/puppet.example.com.pem;
        ssl_crl                    /var/puppet/ssl/ca/ca_crl.pem;
        ssl_client_certificate     /var/puppet/ssl/certs/ca.pem;
        ssl_ciphers                SSLv2:-LOW:-EXPORT:RC4+RSA;
        ssl_prefer_server_ciphers  on;
        ssl_verify_client          optional;
        ssl_verify_depth           1;
        ssl_session_cache          shared:SSL:128m;
        ssl_session_timeout        5m;
      }
      
  • And create a puppet dashboard server block:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nagios/conf.d/puppet-dashboard.conf
    
    • And add the following:
      server {
        listen       3000;
        server_name  puppet.example.com;
      
        passenger_enabled on;
        passenger_user    puppet-dashboard;
        passenger_group   puppet-dashboard;
      
        access_log        /var/log/nginx/dashboard_access.log;
      
        root              /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard/public;
      }
      
  • Create the log directory to prevent issues on startup:
    mkdir /var/log/nginx
    
  • Enable a daily log file rotation via newsyslog.conf:
    printf "/var/log/nginx/*.log\t\t\t644 7\t * @T00 JG /var/run/nginx.pid 30\n" >> /etc/newsyslog.conf
    
  • If the puppetmaster service is still running from earlier testing, stop it now:
    service puppetmaster onestop
    
  • With initial setup of the Puppetmaster done, a RACK file that Nginx will use to start the Ruby application will be needed:
    mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/puppet/rack/public
    
  • Create the config.ru file
    vi /usr/local/etc/puppet/rack/config.ru
    
    • And add the following
      # Trimmed back FreeBSD Version of https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppet/blob/master/ext/rack/files/config.ru
      $0 = "master" 
      ARGV << "--rack" 
      ARGV << "--confdir" << "/usr/local/etc/puppet" 
      ARGV << "--vardir" << "/var/puppet" 
      require 'puppet/util/command_line'
      run Puppet::Util::CommandLine.new.execute
      
  • Make the script executable
    chown -R puppet:puppet /usr/local/etc/puppet/rack
    
  • Enable nginx service and start it. At this point basic functionality is online:
    echo 'nginx_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    service nginx start
    
    • NOTE: I had a problem connecting to the puppet master, getting 403 errors, after I had setup Nginx/Passenger. The problem was with the /usr/local/etc/puppet/puppet.conf and there being a couple of parameters that needed to be taken out. If the following two lines are present, remove or comment them out. They are are provided in the nginx.conf:
      #ssl_client_header = SSL_CLIENT_S_DN
      #ssl_client_verify_header = SSL_CLIENT_VERIFY
      

Configuring Dashboard - Advanced Features

  • Generating Certs and Connecting to the Puppet Master
    With separate Puppet/Dashboard systems the puppet cert sign dashboard will be on the Puppetmaster:
    cd /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard
    su -m puppet-dashboard -c 'bundle exec rake cert:create_key_pair'
    su -m puppet-dashboard -c 'bundle exec rake cert:request'
    puppet cert sign dashboard
    su -m puppet-dashboard -c 'bundle exec rake cert:retrieve'
    

Enabling Inventory Support

  • Edit the auth.conf file on Puppet master
    vi /usr/local/etc/puppet/auth.conf
    
    • Add the following:
      path /facts
      auth yes
      method find, search
      allow dashboard
      

Enabling the Filebucket Viewer

  • Edit the site.pp on the Puppet master:
    vi /usr/local/etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp
    
    • Add the following:
      filebucket { "main":
        server => "{your puppet master}",
        path => false,
      }
      
    • In either site.pp, in an individual init.pp, or in a specific manifest.
      File { backup => "main" }
      
  • Go back and add the line for Inventory Support
    vi /usr/local/www/puppet-dashboard/config/settings.yml
    
    • And change the following parameters:
      enable_inventory_service: true
      use_file_bucket_diffs: true
      
  • With all the updates made, restart so that it takes effect:
    service nginx restart
    
  • For future maintenance, periodic jobs to prune old reports and run DB optimization.
    mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/periodic/monthly
    vi /usr/local/etc/periodic/monthly/clean_dashboard_database.sh
    
    • And add the following:
      #!/bin/sh
      cd /usr/local/share/puppet-dashboard && \
          echo "Pruning Old Reports from Puppet Dashboard Database" && \
          /usr/bin/su -m puppet-dashboard -c '/usr/local/bin/bundle exec rake RAILS_ENV=production reports:prune upto=3 unit=mon'  && \
          echo "Optimizing Database" && \
          /usr/bin/su -m puppet-dashboard -c '/usr/local/bin/bundle exec rake RAILS_ENV=production db:raw:optimize'
      
    • And make it executable:
      chmod 755 /usr/local/etc/periodic/monthly/clean_dashboard_database.sh
      
  • And create a weekly script:
    mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/periodic/weekly
    vi /usr/local/etc/periodic/weekly/clean_puppet_reports.sh
    

    • And add the following:
      #!/bin/sh
      echo "Pruning Puppetmaster Reports greater than 7 days old" 
      echo -n "  Reports Removed:" 
      find /var/puppet/reports -mtime 7 | xargs rm -v | wc -l
      
    • And make it executable:
      chmod 755 /usr/local/etc/periodic/weekly/clean_puppet_reports.sh
      

Install Nagios

  • Start by installing nagios, php, and fcgi:
    portmaster net-mgmt/nagios net-mgmt/nagios-plugins net-mgmt/nrpe www/spawn-fcgi www/fcgiwrap net/samba-smbclient databases/p5-DBI databases/p5-Class-DBI-mysql
    
  • And then enable the service to start at boot:
    echo 'nagios_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'spawn_fcgi_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'fcgiwrap_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'fcgiwrap_user="www"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    echo 'nrpe2_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    

Configure Nagios

  • Now copy the sample config files to real config files
    cd /usr/local/etc/nagios/
    cp cgi.cfg-sample cgi.cfg
    cp nagios.cfg-sample nagios.cfg
    cp resource.cfg-sample resource.cfg
    
    cd /usr/local/etc/nagios/objects/
    cp commands.cfg-sample commands.cfg
    cp contacts.cfg-sample contacts.cfg
    cp localhost.cfg-sample localhost.cfg
    cp printer.cfg-sample printer.cfg
    cp switch.cfg-sample switch.cfg
    cp templates.cfg-sample templates.cfg
    cp timeperiods.cfg-sample timeperiods.cfg
    
  • Now check you nagios configurations errors
    nagios -v  /usr/local/etc/nagios/nagios.cfg
    
  • Now set a password for the web interface
    htpasswd -c /usr/local/etc/nagios/htpasswd.users nagiosadmin
    
  • Next, create the nagios server block:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nginx/conf.d/nagios.conf
    
    • And add the following
      server {
        listen 8000 default;
        server nagios.example.com;
      
        index index.html index.php;
        root /usr/local/www;
      
        # IP and IP ranges which should get access
        allow 10.0.0.0/24;
        allow 10.1.0.1;
        # all else will be denied
        deny all;
      
        # basic HTTP auth
        auth_basic "Restricted";
        auth_basic_user_file htpasswd;
      
        location ~ \.cgi$ {
          try_files $uri =404;
          include fastcgi_params;
          fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap/fcgiwrap.sock;
          fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
          fastcgi_param REMOTE_USER $remote_user;
        }
      
        location ~ \.php$ {
          try_files $uri =404;
          include fastcgi_params;
          fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
          fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        }
      }
      

      NOTE: It is important that the .cgi location has fastcgi_pass set to unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap/fcgiwrap.sock.
  • Load the schema
    cd /usr/local/share/doc/ndoutils
    perl ./installdb -u nagios-p SecretNagiosPassword -h localhost -d nagios
    
    • Example output
      DBD::mysql::db do failed: Table ‘nagios.nagios_dbversion’ doesn’t exist at ./installdb line 51.
      ** Creating tables for version 1.4b9
           Using mysql.sql for installation…
      ** Updating table nagios_dbversion
      Done!
      
  • Configure the /usr/local/etc/nagios/nagios.cfg file and change the following parameter:
    event_broker_options=-1
    
  • Add the following in “EVENT BROKER MODULE” section
    broker_module=/usr/local/bin/ndomod.o config_file=/usr/local/etc/nagios/ndomod.cfg
    
  • Configure the /usr/local/etc/nagios/ndo2db.cfg file, and change the below three lines:
    db_user=nagios
    db_pass=SecretNagiosPassword
    debug_level=-1
    
  • Start ndo2db
    service ndo2db start
    
  • Start Nagios
    service nagios restart
    
  • Start nginx, and check to see if nagios is working by opening a web browser and going to http://example.com/nagios:
    service nginx start
    
  • NOTE: I kept getting a permission problem when logging in to the Nagios interface. It turned out I needed to add the correct admin user:
    vi /usr/local/etc/nagios/cgi.cfg
    
    • Then add/modify the following
      use_authentication=1
      #edit username
      authorized_for_all_host_commands=username
      authorized_for_all_hosts=username
      authorized_for_all_service_commands=username
      authorized_for_all_services=username
      authorized_for_configuration_information=username
      authorized_for_system_commands=username
      authorized_for_system_information=username
