Ansible Role: Munin Node

Build Status

Installs munin-node, a monitoring system endpoint, on RedHat/CentOS or Debian/Ubuntu Linux servers.


If using RedHat/CentOS, make sure you have the EPEL repository installed prior to using this role (you can install it using the geerlingguy.repo-epel role).

Role Variables

Available variables are listed below, along with default values:

munin_node_bind_host: "*"
munin_node_bind_port: "4949"

The host and port to which munin-node will bind. Common host options are (localhost), or * (bind to all IP addresses). 4949 is the default Munin port.

munin_node_host_name: ''

Set this explicitly if the munin master doesn't report the correct hostname when telnetting in to munin-node. In most cases, the default should work fine.

  - '^127\.0\.0\.1$'

A list of IP addresses formatted as a python-style regular expression. Must use single quotes to allow the proper regex escaping to pass through to the configuration file. Hosts with these IP addresses will be allowed to connect to the server and get detailed system stats via munin-node.

Munin Plugin Configuration

You can enable plugins using the munin_node_plugins list, like so:

  - name: uptime

If the name of the resulting plugin does not match the name of the munin plugin from which it is generated (as is the case, say, with the if_ plugin), you need to add a plugin field to the list item, like so:

  - name: if_eth0
    plugin: if_

Plugin settings

If you need to add plugin configuration for plugins you've added via munin_node_plugins, you can do so with a simple hashmap that has the plugin name (which will be the [plugin] section in the resulting configuration file), and a list of variable names and values. For example:

munin_node_config: {
  "ps_test": {
    "env.regex": "bash",
    "": "bash"

This configuration will generate a configuration file at /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/ansible.conf with the following contents:

env.regex bash bash



Example Playbook

- hosts: servers
    - { role: geerlingguy.munin-node }
