Linux Management Software

I have been on the look out for the best server management software for Linux specifically. I think I finally found it.

Red Hat has put out an open source project called Spacewalk, and it is the best Red Hat project out there by far. It brings together cobbler, augeas and other projects into a great package.

I’m still doing a lot of the initial configuration but I’m very impressed. I mostly needed it for monitoring and configuration management rather then package management and server deployments but I’m sure I will be using those features soon enough. It is worth the time to install and try. According the site it also supports Solaris and that debian support is coming.

I will be posting my experience with this project as I keep using it. My only problem with this project is that the postgres support is still very much in an alpha to beta state. I can tell you right now as soon as the postgres support improves I will be moving off Oracle.
