Post date: May 7, 2007, 01:05 Category: Network Views: 2397 Comments: 0

It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this is a client/server environment.

Mandriva Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Mandriva 2008.0
Post date: February 26, 2008, 05:02 Category: Installing Views: 1049 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: In this article I will describe how you can monitor your Mandriva 2008.0 server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much configuration, whereas monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphic that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems, and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.
