MySQL facter

Yesterday I started to play with mcollective I added some agents like service and facter. I really liked the facter agent.... and then I decided to add facts for MySQL. Of course I needed to learn some ruby first :-) A fact is created for the version and all other MySQL facts come from the SHOW STATUS statement. All the new facts start by mysql_ I plan to add new facts related to the replication like Seconds_Behind_Master The current version is available on github here

Some usage examples:

with facter:
[root@delvaux facter]# facter mysql_version 2>/dev/null
5.5.10
[root@delvaux facter]# facter mysql_max_used_connections 2>/dev/null
3
with mcollective:
[root@delvaux facter]# mc-facts mysql_version
Report for fact: mysql_version

  1. I’ve added also facts from the SHOW SLAVE STATUS statement.

    Those facts are prefixed with mysql_replica_

    Example:

    [root@delvaux facter]# mc-facts mysql_replica_slave_sql_running -v
    Determining the amount of hosts matching filter for 2 seconds .... 3
    Report for fact: mysql_replica_slave_sql_running
    
             Yes                                    found 2 times
    
                debian1
                debian2

  2. I just added a new fact to see the server version (from @@version_comment) :

    [root@nodea facter]# facter mysql_version_server
    Percona Server (GPL), Release beta20.0, Revision 46
    
    [root@delvaux facter]# facter mysql_version_server
