We will provide a working lab for Icinga, Icinga Director, Netbox, Ansible and Grafana, to allow you to document, manage and monitor datacentre infrastructure at scale. These components provide a platform that you can document infrastructure, and have it automatically monitored. This lab will be useful for anyone who cares about physical servers, switches, routers etc, and wants to have a better way to manage their lifecycle. It will be pretty fast paced and assume you have some Linux system administration knowledge. You will need a laptop capable of running virtualbox with spare 4G of ram, and 10G of diskspace. You can follow along without a laptop, as we will walk through the various components and show how they work together. Linux Australia: YouTube:
