"Enterprise grade patching management tools for Linux can be either quite expensive or complex to set up and maintain. Tools like dnf-automatic and yum-cron have substantial limitations when deploying at scale or where there are more complex requirements.

Auter is a tool written to provide some of the advantages of those patching tools but managed by each host. Auter is a host based, highly configurable method for patching. Advantages include executing custom scripts at different stages of the update process, optional automatic reboots after updates have been applied and the ability to deploying staggered, version controlled updates across multiple environments. Large scale reporting and co-ordination can be provided via existing CM platforms such as ansible, chef, puppet."
