Deprecation: System Profile plugin (OHAI-14)

[edit on GitHub]

The system_profile plugin will be removed from Chef/Ohai 15 in April 2019. This plugin does not correctly return data on modern Mac systems. Additionally the same data is provided by the hardware plugin, which has a format that is simpler to consume. Removing this plugin will reduce Ohai return by ~3 seconds and greatly reduce the size of the node object on the Chef server.

Remediation

If you relied on data in node[‘system_profile’], you should look at the format in node[‘hardware’] and migrate to that new data format.
