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.

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  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 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 ;-)

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 :-)

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.
