Because I investigated this for a project, Linux (at least RHEL) mailx can use a remote SMTP server, thus enabling us to test whether that server allows email sending from our application.

mailx -S smtp=<smtp-server-address> -r <from-address> -s <subject> -v <to-address> < content.txt

Where “-S smtp ” is the crucial component (that apparently AIX mail/mailx doesn’t support) allowing you to send through a remote server rather than a locally-configured server.

-v is "verbose"
content.txt is a local file that contains the body of the test message I'm sending.

Puppet supports “if” and “unless” statements, case statements, and selectors.

Some conditional statements that you can use on puppet templates:

<% if @hostname == ("srv01") then -%>
... ... ...
<% end -%>
<% if @hostname != ("srv01") then -%>
... ... ...
<% end -%>
<% if @hostname == ("srv01" or "srv02") then -%>
... ... ... 
<% end -%>

Here is some command to test your puppet syntax

# "bundle exec rake spec" <= check whole puppet script
# "bundle exec rake spec SPEC_OPTS=-fd" <= with debug mode
# "bundle exec rake syntax" <= check syntax
# "bundle exec rspec spec/hosts/server_spec.rb" <= check puppet script on specific host

We can test to parse your log file before implement it on your server to test syntax, etc.

For example, we have log format as below

Nov 26 09:41:22 webserver8 2013/11/26 09:41:13 [warn] 2787#0: *39595376 a client request body is buffered to a temporary file /var/lib/nginx/body/0000251155, client:, server:, request: "POST /some_request.php HTTP/1.1", host: "", referrer: ""
