Red Hat Enterprise Linux

isginf offers to manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (RHELS) installations on server hardware.

Configuration

The configuration is centrally managed and can be customized to your needs:

  • users and groups
  • firewall
  • installed software
  • running services

Root Access

Access to the root account on the server is available for performing performing certain management tasks.

Backup

By default the following directories are backed up on a server:

  • /etc
  • /local
  • /opt
  • /var
  • /root
  • /export (if present)

Additional directories are backed up on requested. Please note that there are limitations on the amount of data that can be backed up.

Compute servers with a workstation installation are not backed up.

Monitoring

By default the following resources and functions of a server are monitored:

What Alert when
Overall network access not reachable
SSH access no login prompt
Space on local file systems 80% full
Critical system services running not running
Number of processes more than 300 processes
Free memory all RAM used and only 30% swap left
Load average more than 15 in 1 minute, 5 in 5 minutes and 1.25 in 15 minutes

Additional mission-critical functions and resources can be monitored on request. In case of an alert in the monitoring isginf will contact the server owner or ITC.
