It has been quite calm for a couple of months here. I have switched job, it explains why I had less time to post some things.
Quick post : installing a mongo server is good, monitoring it is better. I wrote a very basic check that ensure your mongo DB is healthy.
In my last post I’ve been talking about mcollective (check the new website) and mongo and how awesome it is.
I run a bunch of box under OpenBSD at $WORK and I wanted to be able to run mcollective on these too.
Some friends told me for a while about collectd, why I should look at it, why munin is so painful and so on.
I already blogged about my experiments with mcollective & xen but I had something a little bigger in my mind.
