Puppet module to deploy UniversalForwarder

Dear all,

please find here my attempt at making a working Puppet module to deploy the uf en-masse. It's tested and working on CentOS, Ubuntu and Opensuse, but YMMV. It defaults on a standard template unless you place a .erb file in the templates folder. Gets its parameters from Hiera (uf.yaml).

Have you put this up on Puppet Forge yet (forge.puppetlabs.com) ? I think it would be really useful, especially since a lot of the existing modules are almost exclusively for Red Hat or Ubuntu systems.

Yes! You can find it here: http://forge.puppetlabs.com/SIG/splunk . Soon I'll put there the others too (I'm working on a fully automated monitoring solution deployed via puppet: collectd to send metrics to graphite, sar and *NIX application for more metrics, nagios for alerts and forwarder for the logs).
