[quote=“RobertD, post: 27229, member: 20512”]Hello Community FOG Gurus!
I work for a very large school district in Texas. We are implementing FOG as our new imaging system and so far everything is working out great (Love the system so far). We have customized the setup so the images are stored on our NAS as opposed to setting up multiple fog server storage servers. We did this for sheer reasons of speed and redundancy.
These are the specs of the server FOG is installed on:
HP DL380 G8
E5-2430 (6 Core/12 Threads)
6 - 500 GB 7200RPM Drives (RAID 10)
My concern is the Fog service. We have added it to our new images, but will this server and MySQL be able to handle 20-30,000 devices checking in all the time? (We also changed the checkintime in the ini file to 999.)
This is probably a question better suited for the Ubuntu forums, but is there an easy way to monitor CPU usage, network connections, etc from command line or will I need to install a GUI to do this?[/quote]
Very large indeed. I guess everything in Texas is bigger.
For monitoring I have just started using an open source project netxms. It can install an agent, read the Windows WMI data or SNMP data. I have not tried monitoring a Linux server, however I think there is an agent… I am mostly interested in traffic so I monitor the switch ports. Netxms has thresholds and can generate alerts. However a lot of the documentation is not completed or even available. it has been up and running for a couple of weeks and while there have been glitches I have found some work arounds. On the positive side I found a workstation with a bad NIC or some software issues that was spewing out almost 80 mps.
I hope this helps.
