Less known Solaris features [36388]
pwait

Joerg writes, "This is a nifty small tool that I'm using quite often in scripts that stop something and do some tasks afterwards and I don't want to hassle around with the contract file system. It's not a cool feature, but it's useful and relatively less known. An example: As I wrote long ago, you should never use kill -9 because often the normal kill is intercepted by the application and it starts to do some clean up tasks first before really stopping the process. So just because kill has returned, it doesn't imply that the process is away. How do you wait for process to disappear?..."

All of these new Resource Types and Providers have been available on java.net since integration into the FOSS projects gate. I am actively working with Puppet Labs to get this code pushed back upstream so that it's available for anybody to work with.

Puppet Configuration in Solaris [36271]
By Drew Fisher

Drew writes, "Puppet is IT automation software that helps system administrators manage IT infrastructure. It automates tasks such as provisioning, configuration, patch management and compliance. Repetitive tasks are easily automated, deployment of critical applications occurs rapidly, and required system changes are proactively managed. Puppet scales to meet the needs of the environment, whether it is a simple deployment or a complex infrastructure, and works on-premise or in the cloud.

Puppet is now available as part of Oracle Solaris 11.2!..."
