Name        : facter
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 1.6.18
Release     : 7.fc19
URL         : http://www.puppetlabs.com/puppet/related-projects/facter/
Summary     : Command and ruby library for gathering system information
Description :
Facter is a lightweight program that gathers basic node information about the
hardware and operating system. Facter is especially useful for retrieving
things like operating system names, hardware characteristics, IP addresses, MAC
addresses, and SSH keys.

Facter is extensible and allows gathering of node information that may be
custom or site specific. It is easy to extend by including your own custom
facts. Facter can also be used to create conditional expressions in Puppet that
key off the values returned by facts.
