       puppet status action [--terminus TERMINUS]


       Note  that  any  configuration  parameter that´s valid in the configuration file is also a
       valid long argument, although it may or may not be relevant to  the  present  action.  For
       example,  server  is  a  valid  configuration  parameter,  so  you  can  specify  --server
       <servername> as an argument.

       See          the          configuration          file           documentation           at   for  the  full  list  of
       acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated
       by running puppet with --genconfig.

       --mode MODE
              The  run  mode  to  use  for  the  current action. Valid modes are user, agent, and

       --render-as FORMAT
              The format in which to render output. The most common formats are json, s (string),
              yaml, and console, but other options such as dot are sometimes available.

              Whether to log verbosely.

              Whether to log debug information.

       --terminus TERMINUS
              Indirector  faces expose indirected subsystems of Puppet. These subsystems are each
              able to retrieve and alter a specific type of data (with the  familiar  actions  of
              find, search, save, and destroy) from an arbitrary number of pluggable backends. In
              Puppet parlance, these backends are called terminuses.

              Almost all indirected subsystems have a  rest  terminus  that  interacts  with  the
              puppet  master´s  data.  Most  of them have additional terminuses for various local
              data models, which are in turn used by  the  indirected  subsystem  on  the  puppet
              master whenever it receives a remote request.

              The  terminus  for an action is often determined by context, but occasionally needs
              to be set explicitly. See the "Notes" section  of  this  face´s  manpage  for  more


       destroy - Invalid for this subcommand.

              puppet status destroy [--terminus TERMINUS] key


              Invalid for this subcommand.

       find - Check status of puppet master server.

              puppet status find [--terminus TERMINUS] dummy_text


              Checks  whether a Puppet server is properly receiving and processing HTTP requests.
              This action is only useful when used with ´--terminus rest´; when invoked with  the
              local terminus, find will always return true.

              Over REST, this action will query the configured puppet master by default. To query
              other servers, including puppet agent nodes started with the --listen  option,  you
              can  set set the global --server and --masterport options on the command line; note
              that agent nodes listen on port 8139.


              A "true" response or a low-level connection error. When used  from  the  Ruby  API:
              returns a Puppet::Status object.


              This  action  requires  that  the  server´s auth.conf file allow find access to the
              status REST terminus. Puppet agent does not use this facility, and it is turned off
              by  default.  See  for  more

              Although this action always returns an unnamed status object, it requires  a  dummy
              argument. This is a known bug.

       info - Print the default terminus class for this face.

              puppet status info [--terminus TERMINUS]


              Prints  the  default  terminus  class  for this subcommand. Note that different run
              modes may have different default termini; when in doubt, specify the run mode  with
              the ´--mode´ option.

       save - Invalid for this subcommand.

              puppet status save [--terminus TERMINUS]


              Invalid for this subcommand.

       search - Invalid for this subcommand.

              puppet status search [--terminus TERMINUS] query


              Invalid for this subcommand.



       Check the status of the configured puppet master:

       $ puppet status find x --terminus rest


       This  subcommand  is  an  indirector  face,  which exposes find, search, save, and destroy
       actions for an indirected subsystem of Puppet. Valid termini for this face include:

       ·   local

       ·   rest
