Our #monitoringsucks rpm is repository available

Not only our Rubygems Builds have changed, but also my internal #monitoringsucks repository.

You might have noticed a variety of vagrant- projects on my github acount,
Being the #monitoringsucks part of them. All of those Vagrant projects are basically my test setups to play with those new tools.

They contain a bunch of puppet modules that install and configure these tools. (Note that they mostly consist of
of git submodules to other puppet module repositories.

Given the fact that I also like to have my software cleanly installed from a package, that means that some of these tools had to be packaged, or I had to create a personal / internal repository which had packages from upstream that were hiding on the internet available.

I've forked of this repository off the internal Inuits epository so you all can also benefit from these efforts.
(You gotta love pulp :))

That means you can now install all of the above mentionned #monitoringsucks tool from our public repo on

  1. yumrepo { 'monitoringsucks':
  2. baseurl => '',
  3. descr => 'MonitoringSuck at Inuits',
  4. gpgcheck => '0',
  5. }

Patches to both the Vagrant projects and the puppet modules are welcome ...

Ruby Gems Yum Repo

For those of you that are looking for my old build-gems Github repo, given that lots of other Inuits collegues are using it too I've transferred ownership of that repo to the Inuits group.

It can now be found on (Yes directory indexes are disabled on purpose..)

The build result has also been moved. We've replaced our static with a Pulp powered yum repo.

The new location of the rubygems rpm repo now is at

Which can be used as

  1. [rubygems]
  2. name=RubyGems at Inuits
  3. baseurl=
  4. gpgcheck=0

or even

  1. yumrepo { 'rubygems':
  2. baseurl => '',
  3. descr => 'RubyGems at Inuits',
  4. gpgcheck => '0',
  5. }

More repos are moving .. I`ll be updating Vagrant trees as I go ..
