System requirements

  • Ubuntu Linux 64 bit (16.04 LTS "xenial" and 18.04 LTS "bionic"), Debian Linux 64 bit (10 "buster")
  • PHP >= 7.2
  • 2 CPU cores (x86-64)
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 15 GB space

Production system sizing

Unfortunately there is no golden rule for the right sizing of a monitoring system. This depends on the amount of hosts and services you like to monitor.

Please keep in mind that a monitoring system usually will create more I/O than your KVM farm!

It's recommended to use SSD as main storage.

A rough guide:

  • 32 GB RAM
  • 16 CPU Cores
  • 500 GB space

Installation

openITCOCKPIT runs on Ubuntu and Debian Linux systems and is available for download/installation via apt repositories.

To install openITCOCKPIT on your system, just run the following commands.

If phpMyAdmin asks you for your web server leave the selection blank and continue with Ok.

openITCOCKPIT uses Nginx as webserver and will generate a configuration for phpMyAdmin automatically for you.

Please execute all commands as user root or via sudo.

openITCOCKPIT + Naemon (recommended)
