openITCOCKPIT

System requirements

  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS x64
  • 2 CPU cores
  • 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!

A rough guide:

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

Installation

openITCOCKPIT runs on Ubuntu systems and is available in the package manager apt.

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 the configuration for phpMyAdmin automatically for you.
