The new PIFIA alarm GitChk can track changes in configuration files and alert or autocommit any changes.
As any PIFIA alarm, we can tell it what to do writing config files in /var/lib/pica/obj/GitChk/GitChk.* In this file, we tell GitChk which directories we want to track, and the level of proactivity (automatic actions).
The format is the following:
# directory proactivity level: # none => no action # init => only init repo and initial commit # commit => also do automatic commits /etc init
The proactivity levels are:
- none: No action is taken, just generate a notification
- init: If the given directory is not being tracked with git, initialize the repo and do an initial commit. It will NOT commit any subsequent check
- commit: always do automatic commits if it finds changes
By default it only tracks /etc with level init
Right now this alert only commit changes to a local repository, it does not send changes to remote repos.
We have been thinking about this, and since we are supposed to do backups of everything, we already have all this info in the backup.
We may add support for remote repos in a near future
Due to a problem with CentOS bootstrap, we just published version 0.0.4 that uses authconfig instead of pwconv

This new version includes a lot of new functionalities and contains a complete live system for recovering failed servers.
The live system can also be used to install a server remotely. With the new sar script (and some configuration on your servers), you can install a server even if it is installed behind a firewall.
Durante la celebración del Gran Canaria Desktop Summit se impartio un Taller de Virtualización acargo de Kuko Armas que demostró su buen hacer en el arte de la comunicación y la transmisión del conocimiento.
I just published the ModularIT NOC service.
This service is used to control all ModularIT servers. It uses Nagios for monitoring and Puppet for configuration management.
