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.

Systemd Chef Cookbook

Build Status

A resource-driven Chef cookbook for managing GNU/Linux systems via systemd.

Drop Ins

Systemd provides support for "drop-in" units that work really well for config-
mgmt systems; rather than taking over an entire unit definition, you can apply
custom configuration (e.g. resource limits) that will be merged into the vendor-
provided unit. It's recommended to use these when modifying units installed via
the package manager. See drop-in docs for more info.

Daemon Reloads

By default, changes to unit resources will be applied to the system immediately
via calls to systemctl daemon-reload. However, on systems with large numbers
of units, daemon-reload can be problematic. For users encountering
problems (hangs, slowness) with systemctl daemon-reload calls, this cookbook
allows users to disable daemon-reloads by setting the auto_reload attribute
to false.

In some cases, it may be possible to avoid daemon-reload entirely by using the
set_properties action. However, only a subset of unit properties are supported
by systemctl set-property, so, unfortunately, in some cases a daemon-reload
may be unavoidable. For these cases, it's possible run a daemon-reload once
at the end of a converge.

This cookbook provides the daemon_reload recipe to help with this. It removes
the need to have every resource send a notification, and triggers a reload at
the end of a converge if any auto_reload false units have been updated.

<a name="resources"></a>Resources

<a name="unit-resources"></a>Unit Resources

All unit resources support the following actions:

Action Description
:create render unit configuration file from attributes
:delete delete unit configuration file
:enable enable the unit at boot, unless static (lacks Install section)
:disable disables the unit at boot, unless static
:start starts the unit
:stop stops the unit
:restart restarts the unit
:reload reloads the unit
:set_properties runs systemctl --runtime set-property for unit configuration

Important: The notable exception is when the unit is a drop-in unit,
in which case it supports only the :create, :delete, and :set_properties actions.

<a name="systemd-automount"></a>systemd_automount

Unit which describes a file system automount point controlled by systemd.

Example usage (always paired with a mount unit):

path-based activities.

  path do
    path_exists_glob '/var/spool/cups/d*'

<a name="systemd-service"></a>systemd_service

Unit which describes information about a process controlled and supervised by
systemd. Documentation.

While there is some overlap with the service resource in Chef-core,
this resource is more narrowly focused on service unit config/management on
systemd-based platforms, whereas the Chef-core service resource works
across multiple service-management frameworks.

As such, while it is possible to perform lifecycle management of services
on systemd platforms using the systemd_service resource, the systemd cookbook
authors do not recommend doing so. Instead, it is recommended to pair
systemd_service instances with platform-agnostic service resources,
as demonstrated below.

Example usage:

cookbook_file '/etc/init/httpd.conf' do
  source 'httpd.conf'
  only_if { ::File.executable?('/sbin/initctl') } # Upstart

systemd_service 'httpd' do
  description 'Apache HTTP Server'
  after %w( )
  install do
    wanted_by ''
  service do
    environment 'LANG' => 'C'
    exec_start '/usr/sbin/httpd $OPTIONS -DFOREGROUND'
    exec_reload '/usr/sbin/httpd $OPTIONS -k graceful'
    kill_signal 'SIGWINCH'
    kill_mode 'mixed'
    private_tmp true
