We are currently evaluating Puppet and Chef on several criteria and we
have found a big difference between the amount of information
retrieved by Facter in Puppet and the amount of information retrieved
by Ohai in Chef for a same virtual machine.
There is about 2000 lines in the JSON file provided by Chef when there
is only 72 lines in the YAML file provided by Puppet.
For Chef, it is a formatted JSON so there is a certain amount of lines
because of the json hierarchy and there is too a lot of "Not
Specified" data meaning no useful data, but even comparing the raw
useful data, there's still a big difference.
We would like to know if there are plugins / modules for Facter that
are freely available and would permit to fill the gap between Puppet
and Chef on this aspect.
Could you please give us some links on facts that are not included in
facter and would permit to retrieve more information on the nodes ?
Unless we miss some configuration or documentation from puppetlabs
which would permit to extract more facts from nodes ?
Thanks in advance for your help
