5.3.1. HOWTO Block or Cache Facts¶
As described in Configuring Facter with facter.conf, you can block or cache
groups of facts on a node using settings in
facter.conf on that node. SIMP
has made this easier by adding management of
facter.conf to simp/pupmod
(version >= ‘8.0.0’). Using this module, you can
facter.conf and specify its configuration in Hiera.
Here is example Hiera that blocks and caches select groups of facts:
--- pupmod::manage_facter_conf: true pupmod::facter_options: facts: blocklist: - EC2 ttls: - kernel: "8 hours" - memory: "8 hours" - operating system: "8 hours" - processor: "8 hours"
