Description

This package is a powerful remote execution manager that can be used to
administer servers in a fast and efficient way. It allows commands to
be executed across large groups of servers. This means systems can be
easily managed, but data can also be easily gathered. Quick
introspection into running systems becomes a reality. Remote
execution is usually used to set up a certain state on a remote
system. Salt addresses this problem as well, the Salt state system
uses Salt state files to define the state a server needs to be in.
Between the remote execution system, and state management Salt
addresses the backbone of cloud and data center management. This
particular package provides the worker / agent for Salt.

This particular package provides the worker / agent for Salt.

Note: Be advised that while the Salt software is mature and
proven, this particular packaging in a juju charm is rather
untested.

Usage

This is a stand-alone Salt Minion charm.

Deploy the service:

juju deploy salt-minion

The Salt Minion can optionally be connected up to a Salt Master, which
is deployed using the salt-master charm.
