Controlling Ohai Content with Blacklisting and Disabling Plugins
DevOps Training Architect II in Content
Ohai collects a lot of information through the various plugins that are installed by default, and through additional plugins that are added by community cookbooks or our own cookbooks. This information isn't useful for everyone, though, and occasionally it can be beneficial to avoid calculating or saving it to the Chef Server. In this hands-on lab, you'll customize the information being sent to your Chef Server by disabling Ohai plugins and blacklisting attributes.
