This module handles installation of Takipi agent.

Java agent currently supports RPM and DEB-based Linux distributions. .Net agent currently supports Windows platform.

Module Description

Takipi deploys a VM agent library and a daemon process (called collector and deployed only in Java agent installation) on your servers. These two components work in tandem to log and send data to Takipi's analysis servers. Together they detect events (such as exceptions or logged errors) happening within your app and automatically create the code needed to log and collect the data you'll need to debug these errors in production.

.Net agent requiers an installation of remote collector.


What takipi affects

Java agent:

  • Installs Java on the node that Takipi is to be installed, handled by puppetlabs-java module. (optional)
  • Installs Takipi base package.
  • Adds the Takipi secret key (found under /opt/takipi/work/secret.key) and completes package installation.

.Net agent:

  • Removes previous .Net agent.
  • Downloads and installs an msi of the agent.

Setup Requirements


  • puppetlabs-stdlib (puppet module install puppetlabs-stdlib)
  • puppetlabs-java <= 1.3.0 (puppet module install puppetlabs-java --version 1.3.0)

Beginning with takipi

Create your account at https://app.takipi.com/account.html and get your secret key.

For .Net Agent, please prepare remote collector (https://doc.overops.com/docs/install-a-collector-for-net)


Basic usage of Java agent:

copy the takipi module to the puppet modules path (for example /etc/puppet/modules/takipi)

include takipi
class {'::takipi':
  secret_key => 'YOUR_SECRET_KEY',

Takipi with specific Java version:

distribution, will define the type of environment JRE or JDK package, will represent the full packge name

class {'java':
  distribution          => 'jdk',
  package               => undef,

Takipi without external Java installation:

include takipi
class {'::takipi':
  manage_java => false,
  secret_key  => 'YOUR_SECRET_KEY',

Basic usage of .Net agent:

copy the takipi module to the puppet modules path (for example C:\Program Files\Puppet Labs\Puppet\puppet\modules\takipi)

include takipi
class {'::takipi':
    secret_key  => 'YOUR_SECRET_KEY',
    collector_host => 'YOUR_COLLECTOR_IP',
    collector_port => 'YOUR_COLLECTOR_PORT',
    windows_temp_dir => 'C:\users\Administrator\Downloads',



Does not handle extra functionality apart from installing Takipi.


Pull requests are greatly appreciated, please keep proper indentation.

Beaker tests are awesome, feel free to throw some in.


Under tests/ there is a Vagrantfile that can be used to test Takipi module. Currently two boxes are added for tests, Centos 6.5 and Ubuntu 13.10 provided by Puppetlabs.

Make sure to add a valid secret key in tests/manifests/takipi.pp.
