So I've been hooking up Salt with a number of different OSs, including: -
* Linux (Debian, Alpine, OpenSUSE, CentOS and Arch)
* illumos (OmniOS)
* Windows (2019 Core, running OpenSSH!)
Salt deploys Consul and node_exporter (or wmi_exporter for Windows), and then Prometheus discovers them.
The beauty of this is any new machine, including derivatives/similar OSs (OpenIndiana, Ubuntu, Manjaro etc), would work with all of this too.
Blog post coming soon!
This is gonna be a fun one to read. Already in the first couple of paragraphs I'm laughing
Nice one @mwlucas
I'm down for this. Current WFH setup. Its still a work in progress as the room was only finished about 5 days ago (wall was knocked down, massive old wardrobe removed), but I'm happy to the say the least!
It took longer than I thought to get around to finishing this off (Christmas kicked in just as I was in the middle of it).
Everything is now in the right network.
Firewalling/proper segmentation tomorrow, and then I think I can concentrate on some of the enhancements I wanted to implement (always-on VPNs, nice FreeRADIUS frontend, etc).
For context, this was it before....
And so it is done. The Banana Pi, my file server/backup box/SyncThing "home" node for the past 3 years, is out.
I'm now all set for the full network migration on Friday, from a flat single subnet to multiple VLANs, some dynamic routing (BGP, to integrate with some other infrastructure elsewhere), and overall way more control.
