building a large scaled monitoring system for a customer with icinga 1.4.0 + pnp4nagios 0.6 (bulk mode with npcd), db logging. it will monitor very different stuff …. from servers to network, from esx(i) to linux machines, from firewalls to printers … good to see that all the needed software comes from the debian stable repositories (non-free). once again debian FTW !

just updated some esxi hosts, merged a snapshot with a flatfile vm, switched 17 servers to different esxi hosts – vmware is a good product. now we can do even online backups with esxi 4.1 – ghettoVCB.sh http://communities.vmware.com/

one important thing left so say: never touch or move vms with snapshots ^^

new virtualization project

i`m planning a new virtualization structure for a customer. this time based on three ibm x3650 m3 machines; one machine as iSCSI target, the other two machines with vmware ESXi 4.1, for sure it will be real fun to configure one x3650 m3 as a iSCSI target – hoping debian stable will install clean without patching the kernel for raid modules or something ….  🙂
