The Grand Puppet Sub-Systems Tour - Nicholas Fagerlund, Puppet Labs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Hey, let's talk about the indirector. And the catalog. And maybe the node terminus? And the configurer!

Most of us treat Puppet like it consists of one or two big systems -- the puppet master, the agent, the CA. But each of these is built from smaller systems, which we don't usually think about. This talk will be a high-speed overview of the way Puppet's major subsystems and models fit together. We'll discuss how the puppet master compiles a catalog, the nature of the catalog itself, the type and provider system, where external data can enter the process, and more.

You won't learn how to use Puppet from this talk! But if you've been using Puppet for a while and want to understand how all these dozens of pieces fit together, this is for you.
