       puppet status action [--terminus	_TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]

       Note  that any setting that's valid in the configuration	file is	also a
       valid long argument, although it	may or may  not	 be  relevant  to  the
       present action. For example, server and run_mode	are valid settings, so
       you can specify --server	<servername>, or --run_mode  <runmode>	as  an

       See    the    configuration    file   documentation   at	  https://pup- for the full list of  ac-
       ceptable	 parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can
       also be generated by running puppet with	--genconfig.

       --render-as FORMAT
	      The format in which to render output. The	 most  common  formats
	      are  json, s (string), yaml, and console,	but other options such
	      as dot are sometimes available.

	      Whether to log verbosely.

	      Whether to log debug information.

       --extra HASH
	      A	terminus can take additional arguments to  refine  the	opera-
	      tion,  which  are	 passed	 as an arbitrary hash to the back-end.
	      Anything passed as the extra value is just send  direct  to  the

       --terminus _TERMINUS
	      Indirector  faces	 expose	indirected subsystems of Puppet. These
	      subsystems are each able to retrieve and alter a	specific  type
	      of  data	(with  the familiar actions of find, search, save, and
	      destroy) from an arbitrary number	of pluggable backends. In Pup-
	      pet parlance, these backends are called terminuses.

	      Almost  all  indirected subsystems have a	rest terminus that in-
	      teracts with the puppet master's data. Most of them  have	 addi-
	      tional  terminuses  for  various local data models, which	are in
	      turn used	by the indirected subsystem on the puppet master when-
	      ever it receives a remote	request.

	      The  terminus  for an action is often determined by context, but
	      occasionally needs to be set explicitly. See the "Notes" section
	      of this face's manpage for more details.

       find - Check status of puppet master server.

	      puppet status [--terminus	_TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] [key]


	      Checks  whether  a  Puppet server	is properly receiving and pro-
	      cessing HTTP requests. This action is only useful	when used with
	      '--terminus  rest';  when	 invoked with the local	terminus, find
	      will always return true.

	      Over REST, this action will query	the configured	puppet	master
	      by default. To query other servers, including puppet agent nodes
	      started with  the	 --listen  option,  you	 can  set  the	global
	      --server and --masterport	options	on the command line; note that
	      agent nodes listen on port 8139.


	      A	"true" response	or a low-level	connection  error.  When  used
	      from the Ruby API: returns a Puppet::Status object.


	      This action requires that	the server's auth.conf file allow find
	      access to	the status REST	terminus. Puppet agent	does  not  use
	      this facility, and it is turned off by default. See https://pup-	for  more  de-

       info - Print the	default	terminus class for this	face.

	      puppet status info [--terminus _TERMINUS]	[--extra HASH]


	      Prints the default terminus class	for this subcommand. Note that
	      different	run modes may have different default termini; when  in
	      doubt, specify the run mode with the '--run_mode'	option.


       Check the status	of the configured puppet master:

       $ puppet	status find --terminus rest

       This  subcommand	 is  an	 indirector  face, which exposes find, search,
       save, and destroy actions for an	indirected subsystem of	Puppet.	 Valid
       termini for this	face include:

       o   local

       o   rest
