Im newbie when it comes to ansible started just a week ago. I was playing around with playbooks and ad-hoc command i run ad-hoc command ansible ansiblenodes -m setup -a "filter=ansible_mounts" | SUCCESS => {
    "ansible_facts": {
        "ansible_mounts": [
                "block_available": 217708,
                "block_size": 4096,
                "block_total": 259584,
                "block_used": 41876,
                "device": "/dev/sda1",
                "fstype": "xfs",
                "inode_available": 523952,
                "inode_total": 524288,
                "inode_used": 336,
                "mount": "/boot",
                "options": "rw,seclabel,relatime,attr2,inode64,noquota",
                "size_available": 891731968,
                "size_total": 1063256064,
                "uuid": "8a896a10-d8b0-4c95-9743-69b213b47f5a"
                "block_available": 2145829,
                "block_size": 4096,
                "block_total": 3273216,
                "block_used": 1127387,
                "device": "/dev/mapper/rhel-root",
                "fstype": "xfs",
                "inode_available": 6400742,
                "inode_total": 6551552,
                "inode_used": 150810,
                "mount": "/",
                "options": "rw,seclabel,relatime,attr2,inode64,noquota",
                "size_available": 8789315584,
                "size_total": 13407092736,
                "uuid": "9fe9a7c9-613e-428d-b255-93f0006cf9ad"
        "discovered_interpreter_python": "/usr/bin/python"
    "changed": false

Now if i want to write a playbook how should i mention that only display Mount point and its available space.


I assume you only want to display this data not to do anything with it:


- hosts: all
    - name: show filesystems
        msg: "mount: {{ item.mount }}, available: {{ item.size_available | human_readable }}"
      loop: "{{ ansible_mounts }}"
        label: ""

This playbook will display mountpoint and avaiable size. I used loop_control to not show every item with all properties in Ansible output.

  • Thanks this is what i wanted, is it possible you can share some online documentation so that i can i understand all these all elements. Thanks – OmiPenguin Jul 30 at 9:00

    @OmiPenguin Official Ansible doc is great so you can just dig into it: docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/user_guide In this example I used debug module, loops and filters. – mrc02_kr Jul 30 at 9:01
