I have a few more custom facts that I’ve added to my puppet-facter-facts github repository:

  • syslog_bin, syslog_type, and syslog_version
    • tell the absolute path to the running syslog binary, its short name (basename), and its version as a string. Currently only know about /sbin/syslogd and /sbin/rsyslogd.
  • has_netbackup
    • tests for presence of the /usr/openv/netbackup/bin directory, created by installation of Symantec Netbackup. Useful for making generation of include/exclude files conditional on having NetBackup installed.

Hopefully some of these will be of use to someone else as well.
