Read tops data from a reclass database
This master_tops plugin provides access to the reclass database, such that state information (top data) are retrieved from reclass.
You can find more information about reclass at http://reclass.pantsfullofunix.net.
To use the plugin, add it to the
master_tops list in the Salt master config
and tell reclass by way of a few options how and where to find the
master_tops: reclass: storage_type: yaml_fs inventory_base_uri: /srv/salt
This would cause reclass to read the inventory from YAML files in
If you are also using reclass as
ext_pillar plugin, and you want to
avoid having to specify the same information for both, use YAML anchors (take
note of the differing data types for
reclass: &reclass storage_type: yaml_fs inventory_base_uri: /srv/salt reclass_source_path: ~/code/reclass ext_pillar: - reclass: *reclass master_tops: reclass: *reclass
If you want to run reclass from source, rather than installing it, you can
either let the master know via the
PYTHONPATH environment variable, or by
setting the configuration option, like in the example above.
Query reclass for the top data (states of the minions).
