ordnance_facts - Collect facts from Ordnance Virtual Routers over SSH

New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

  • Collects a base set of device facts from an Ordnance Virtual router over SSH. This module prepends all of the base network fact keys with ansible_net_<fact>. The facts module will always collect a base set of facts from the device and can enable or disable collection of additional facts.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
gather_subset Default:
!config
When supplied, this argument will restrict the facts collected to a given subset. Possible values for this argument include all, hardware, config, and interfaces. Can specify a list of values to include a larger subset. Values can also be used with an initial ! to specify that a specific subset should not be collected.
