Ansible can do many things many times.
As a huge fan of lightweight software, it’s hard to ignore ansible for automation tasks. If you want to centralize xymon client management another step further, why not go agentless and have ansible manage that for you? Another benefit is that you also encrypt the data at the same time sending it over the network. The xymon client can be configured to do that too, but keeping it simple is easier with ansible.
I’ll post some sample playbooks on the git repo.
Also working on an ansible xymon module.
