ansible-pull - set up a remote copy of ansible on each managed node
ansible -d DEST -U URL [options] [ <filename.yml> ]
Ansible is an extra-simple tool/framework/API for doing 'remote things' over SSH. Use ansible-pull to set up a remote copy of ansible on each managed node, each set to run via cron and update playbook source via a source repository. This inverts the default push architecture of ansible into a pull architecture, which has near-limitless scaling potential. The setup playbook can be tuned to change the cron frequency, logging locations, and parameters to ansible-pull. This is useful both for extreme scale-out as well as periodic remediation. Usage of the fetch module to retrieve logs from ansible-pull runs would be an excellent way to gather and analyze remote logs from ansible-pull.
filename.yml The name of one the YAML format files to run as an ansible playbook. This can be a relative path within the checkout. If not provided, ansible-pull will look for a playbook based on the host’s fully-qualified domain name, on the host hostname and finally a playbook named local.yml.
-d DEST, --directory=DEST Directory to checkout repository into. If not provided, a subdirectory of ~/.ansible/pull/ will be used. -U URL, --url=URL URL of the playbook repository to checkout. -C CHECKOUT, --checkout=CHECKOUT Branch/Tag/Commit to checkout. If not provided, uses default behavior of module used to check out playbook repository. -f, --force Force running of playbook even if unable to update playbook repository. This can be useful, for example, to enforce run-time state when a network connection may not always be up or possible. -i PATH, --inventory=PATH The PATH to the inventory hosts file. This can be a relative path within the checkout. --purge Purge the checkout after the playbook is run. -m NAME, --module-name=NAME Module used to checkout playbook repository. Defaults to git. -o, --only-if-changed Run the playbook only if the repository has changed
