       puppet status action [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]


       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  and  run_mode  are  valid  configuration  parameters, so you can specify
       --server <servername>, or --run_mode <runmode> 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.

       --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.

       --extra HASH
              A terminus can take additional arguments to refine the operation, which are  passed
              as  an  arbitrary  hash to the back-end. Anything passed as the extra value is just
              send direct to the back-end.

       --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] [--extra HASH] key


              Invalid for this subcommand.

       find - Check status of puppet master server.

              puppet status [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] 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] [--extra HASH]


              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 ´--run_mode´ option.

       save - Invalid for this subcommand.

              puppet status save [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] key


              Invalid for this subcommand.

       search - Invalid for this subcommand.

              puppet status search [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] 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
