puppet-inspect — Send an inspection report

Synopsis

Prepares and submits an inspection report to the puppet master.

Usage

puppet inspect [--archive_files] [--archive_file_server]

Description

This command uses the cached catalog from the previous run of ´puppet agent´ to determine which attributes of which resources have been marked as auditable with the ´audit´ metaparameter. It then examines the current state of the system, writes the state of the specified resource attributes to a report, and submits the report to the puppet master.

Puppet inspect does not run as a daemon, and must be run manually or from cron.
