This page describes what to do in case of an Icinga alert. For more information you could search the govuk-puppet repo for the source of the alert

Puppet last run errors

This alert triggers when there’s an error while running Puppet on a machine.

To investigate, SSH into the machine and look at syslog:

tail /var/log/syslog

You can also try running Puppet again and check the output:

govuk_puppet --test

Sometimes this alert means that there is a puppet lock on the machine, so puppet won’t be run. You can list current locks by running:

govuk_puppet -l
