I appeared on the Admin Admin Podcast talking about Prometheus, plus a little bit about Saltstack too.
Definitely bitten by the podcast bug, I want to do more!
I put together a blog on using OpenBSD to create a highly available firewall pair.
I'm still fairly new to OpenBSD in terms of experience, so I'm sure I've probably got something wrong, let me know if so!
Taking me a bit to get back into blogging again, but heres my take on Consul and Prometheus working together for Blackbox and SNMP exporter checks
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).
Finally redoing my Prometheus configuration so all of it comes from Consul service discovery. Previously, only services running on nodes that could run the Consul agent were discovered.
Now all my blackbox checks are going to it, and the SNMP ones will go next.
This is fun. If I could marry a technology/project, it would be Prometheus.
Dropbox migration mostly over, other than finding a way to share files publicly.
I don't want my "home" Nextcloud instance to be available outside of a VPN, and I backup to Backblaze if I need access to files myself somewhere else. This doesn't solve the issue of sharing with others though
Probably gonna make a public instance and federate, but we'll see.
For context, this was it before....
I recently setup some checks in Prometheus using DNS Service Discovery, and thought I'd put a post together for those who need to work out how to do the same
