Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-10542) Puppet created cron jobs are flooding with email
Date Wed, 21 Oct 2015 17:30:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10542?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14967505#comment-14967505

Geoffrey Corey commented on INFRA-10542:
----------------------------------------

I've added the -q flag to the apt-get commands, and I've removed the echo from the script
when there are no kernels to remove. Sunday will show how much is still printed out when it's
run

> Cron jobs from puppet are spewing mail, and ENOCARE. 
> Email is also a poor mechanism to let us know that something is wrong, esp when it is
something that sends a dozen emails every night, if we need monitoring/alerting, lets do that
in something that we will actually pay attention to rather than something we ignore. 
> In example, look for this subject for messages: 
> Cron <root@mysql1-us-mid> /root/purge_old_kernels -y
