salt.grains.core

The static grains, these are the core, or built in grains.

When grains are loaded they are not loaded in the same way that modules are loaded, grain functions are detected and executed, the functions MUST return a dict which will be applied to the main grains dict. This module will always be executed first, so that any grains loaded here in the core module can be overwritten just by returning dict keys with the same value as those returned here

salt.grains.core.append_domain()

Return append_domain if set

salt.grains.core.default_gateway()

Populates grains which describe whether a server has a default gateway configured or not. Uses ip -4 route show and ip -6 route show and greps for a default at the beginning of any line. Assuming the standard default via <ip> format for default gateways, it will also parse out the ip address of the default gateway, and put it in ip4_gw or ip6_gw.

If the ip command is unavailable, no grains will be populated.

Currently does not support multiple default gateways. The grains will be set to the first default gateway found.

List of grains:

ip4_gw: True # ip/True/False if default ipv4 gateway ip6_gw: True # ip/True/False if default ipv6 gateway ip_gw: True # True if either of the above is True, False otherwise
