After so many years of using
grep I was amazed today to discover
This thing is simply looking inside git objects. Very fast and much more cool than
scratching the head asking ‘Oh where did I put it’ or inventing proper
to the normal grep.
The answer to this question will be clear after digesting this:
Ansible is simply a configuration management done right.
No agents means no firewall problems, no overhead,
no-chicken-and-egg problem (what should monitor the agents?).
Just using what is already configured - and well, admin needs
to have ssh to his machines configured.
I like the beauty and elegance of simple solutions.
So, to answer the title question:
just your machine, not an intermediate agent.
The other possible answer is:
no one is urged to ;)
(the former seems to be valid considering the original ansible idea..
