openITCOCKPIT Desktop App - Flatpak Builder

Tags: openITCOCKPIT


Since using NixOS in production, the time it takes me to run programs has increased exponentially. (at least that's how it feels)

As a workaround to not having to manually build applications on my system, I've started packaging them as Flatpak when they're not available on the Nix store.

Today it was the turn of the openITCOCKPIT Desktop App.

Receive monitoring notifications in Telegram

Tags: openITCOCKPIT


I'm really annoyed ... by over 60 emails per day from my monitoring system!

If something of my infrastructure gets broken I really want to get notified.

But when a service flutters around, e.g. sometimes more and sometimes less CPU, it is good to know, but also very confusing when the whole e-mail inbox is full.

My solution is to separate very important and less relevant notifications by delivering them to different applications.

Install openITCOCKPIT in LXC

Tags: Tutorial | openITCOCKPIT | LXC | Virtualization


In the course of migrating some services from very old openVZ machines I decided to use a powerful KVM Host with Proxmox to manage some applications in LXC and docker.

With my openITCOCKPIT installation, the migration to an LXC did not work using LXC default settings!

openITCOCKPIT needs to create own docker containers, but using docker in LXC wasn´t as easy as I thought.

After some annoying hours I got it working and in the end it wasn't that hard to set up :)

Now it´s my productive setup.
