Saltstack catching dead minions

  • Hi,

    how can i make report or find out minions that are not connecting after a while. I know we can get real-time status of minions, but I am looking for something like this minion has not connected for 30 days ?

    Anything like this ? does Soduim stack have this ?

  • Sodium does indeed do this. We are revamping some of that this weekend, so it's being a bit flaky, but in general it checks "check in" every half hour and tells you if it is current, recent, or been a while and says when the last check in was.

  • Supposedly Foreman also works with Salt, I've only used it with Puppet though.
