We're back with a freshly baked #SysDB  0.8.0 release available for you to enjoy. A lot has changed under the hood allowing for a generic and much more powerful store interface. Store implementations are now fully modular and provided via plugins. The in-memory store has been moved to the new store::memory plugin. When querying SysDB, iterators can now be used more flexibly. See the release notes for all details.

Coming up will be a persistent store implementation, most probably based on #PostgreSQL . Any feedback or ideas on that topic would be highly appreciated.

It's been a while since the last release but we're back with a bunch of new features and updates. #SysDB   0.7.0 introduces features supporting an #agent   mode. For this purpose, the new facter plugin may be used to collect attributes of the local system and send them to another instance using the new store::network plugin. The underlying network protocol extensions may also be used by arbitrary other applications to send data to SysDB instances. All access to SysDB requires authentication now: local access through UNIX domain sockets uses peer authentication and TCP connections use SSL certificate authentication.

Oh, issues are disabled for tokkee/sysdb. Please use github.com/sysdb/sysdb

#SysDB  now supports querying facter fact values from the local system (using the new libfacter provided by +Puppet Labs cfacter project). This is the first step to make SysDB usable as a local agent for collecting #inventory  information.

SysDB — 0.6.0 Release

A new #SysDB  development snapshot focusing on a clearer query language and a much more powerful query architecture. Get it while it's still fresh :-)

Get the new release while it's still fresh.
 
SysDB 0.5.0 includes a lot of improvements mostly under the hood. I've started work on a web-interface which relies on these improvements. Stay tuned :-)

An intro to several tools that are not just powerful debugging tools capable of telling you exactly what your computer is doing, but that also provide a pleasant user interface. All three of these tools present lots of opportunities for integration with your monitoring or configuration management framework. Post by +Gareth Rushgrove.

SysDB Web-Interface: An initial version of a web-based client for SysDB is now available \o/ Go get it at github.com/sysdb/webui but beware that it may still be rough at a few edges. It features browsing and simple look-up of all data and graphs for all metrics accessible through a time-series plugin. Plenty of other feature ideas are still floating around. Also, while I mostly like the current design, I'd particularly appreciate contributions from people more knowledgeable about web design and development ;-)

Osquery exposes an operating system as a high-performance relational database

Interesting idea. I didn't look into details yet but it sounds like a nice approach for large-scale #system-management. Also, it might be a nice tool for integration into +collectd and for extending +SysDB — System Database.

Learn how to aggregate data from, for example, #Icinga, #Puppet, #collectd, and more. Filter monitored hosts/services and various #performance #metrics by facter facts and fetch the metrics from different backends through a single interface.
 
I'm going to talk about +sysdb at +Icinga Monitoring camp in San Francisco in one and a half weeks. Who's going to be there as well?

The system management and inventory collection service
Introduction
“System Datebase” (SysDB) is a Open Source daemon which aggregates system management and inventory information and stores them in a central database. All information is retrieved from the local system or other hardware or software systems (such as configuration management systems or inventory services) and may be queried through a generic interface. SysDB may be operated in an agent mode to collect local information and send them to a central instance.

SysDB currently supports the following backends:
