open source tool to monitor and maintain jenkins slaves + hosts

Eyal Edri
Hi,

Our jenkins environment is expanding, including slaves (both hosts and vms),
and external hosts that are being used by the jenkins slaves.

i'm looking for a management solution to help maintain all those hosts/vms and monitor them.

tasks like:
 - updating multiple hosts in one dashboard (yum/rpm/configuration)
 - monitoring free space
 - monitoring performance (cpu/mem/io..)
 - other various tasks for all hosts


how do you manage your jenkins growing environment?

Have you looked at nagios for monitoring?  http://www.nagios.org/
And maybe puppet for automatic infrastructure management?  http://puppetlabs.com/

I can't think of much you won't be able to do with these...

i used nagios a while back, is it good for finding bottle necks such as network or memory?

what about NTOP or CACTI?

Maybe this is a silly question -- perhaps you're even in that team --
but are you aware of your colleagues at Red Hat working on OpenShift?

They seem to be running a very large Jenkins environment and appear to
have it well managed, judging from their talk at the Jenkins User
Conference:

I'm aware of openshift, and we are considering it for the open source oVirt.org project.

our product is on a much smaller scale from JBOSS (for now :), so the team needs might be different.

I was looking for a monitoring solution for an existing (non-cloud) environment.
Openshift is a very good solution for running jenkins as PAAS in the cloud, not relevant for us at this point.

Eyal.
