       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

       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.


           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 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
