Puppet is a popular tool system management tool for realizing the DevOps dream of “infrastructure as code”. Not surprisingly, Puppet has advanced features for maintaining your Nagios configuration. After a brief introduction to Puppet and its capabilities, we will dive in to Puppet’s use of Naginator to generate dynamic Nagios configs through several Nagios-specific resource types.
