i use puppet to semi-automate management and maintenance of a good few 
(70+) linux hosts.  if i knew more about puppet, that could probably 
read ?fully-automate?, but that?s my failing, not the system ..

you didn?t say what you wanted to do - if you?re looking for generic 
support for network equipment (read:  routers+switches) you?re likely 
to find ansible a better fit, since there?s no ?client? involved 
here;  just ssh.

of course, if you?re not already using rancid/oxidised, you?re 
missing step #1.
