  • Get alerted when things go bad.
  • Don't depend on having to watch the machine 24/7
  • Integrate with the journal
  • Easy accessible

Tentative Design

  • Notification area
  • Every message goes through the journal. Only the ones of a certain level are consithered important enough to trigger a notification event (inside cockpit or via email/xmpp).
  • This however requires that by default a system do not spit out a lot of stuff by default to the journal on that level.



How to alert

  • Email and XMPP

What to alert for

  • Too high CPU/Memory/Disk IO
  • Dying disks
  • Crashing services?
  • Power failure?
  • Failing Internet connection?
  • Packet loss?

Relevant Art


  • Multi-machine vs single machine notifications needs to be discussed and figured out.
