Betreff: [heroes] FYI: Infrastructure status
I just want to give a short update of the tasks I'm aware of and we
discussed during our Christmas meeting:
* The FreeIPA machine is up and running now - but currently only
reachable via the internal network between the machines in Nuremberg
(and we need to make an exception for each machine who wants to have
access via firewall rules). So we might be able to switch to a separated
LDAP authentication for all services (like Gitlab, Monitoring, Status
page, ...) in a few days. => THANKS to darix for his work on this!
Great! So we have finished the first step in the right direction.
But we have a lot of work in front of us.
* I was thinking about the Monitoring part for a while,
and came to the
conclusion that providing one of the standard monitoring pages to our
users might not really be useful for them. So I searched for an
alternative and found https://cachethq.io/
- an open source status page
system that would allow us to inform our users via personal written
notifications, schedule maintenance windows and use an API to automate
this. Our users might also benefit from an RSS and Atom feed and can
subscribe via Email to services they are interested in. I'm currently
working on an initial RPM package in my home and started to play along
with the application.
I like this ideat. That was the same like I have seen it at the Fedora project:
I told you about that during our heroes meeting. You said you want to know more than a
"service is running".
nagios/ Icinga are saying more about the systems, the same with Prometheus.
* I did not process much in the monitoring area, as I
was too busy with
other tasks - but at least we have a running VM now that can be used to
setup monitoring of the machines running in Nuremberg (volunteers?).
I worked as a Monitoring Sysadmin. So I can do it.
And a final question: while I wrote the first two
articles of our
Christmas meeting on news.opensuse.org
, I'm currently not sure if I
should also write the final one or if someone else wanted to do this?
For me it is important to have such a final article as we discussed
about the next steps and their priorities just on the 3rd day - but I'm
fine with waiting if someone else just did not find the time to do it.
It can be that nobody else has got access to news.opensuse.org
at the moment...
That's the reason for such a low commitment by our team there.
