  • Cockpit: an overview

    In the course of my job at Red Hat, I work with a lot of servers. Many of them are a mix of reproducers for customer environments and production boxes. Some of these are dedicated boxes, but there are also plenty of virtual machines, and a few Docker instances. That means I need to view and manage a lot of server resources daily.

    Fortunately there’s a great way to do that which is part of Fedora. Cockpit is an elegant, beautiful way to see and manage my servers using just a web browser. It’s open source, and it is quickly growing new features and capabilities all the time. Best of all, it’s part of Fedora already, and for example ships with the Fedora Server edition.
