Monitor And Administer Linux Servers Using Cockpit Via Web Browser
Cockpit is a free, open source, server administration tool that allows you to easily monitor and administer Linux servers via a web browser. Learn how to install and configure Cockpit on Linux in a helpful tutorial.
It helps the system admins to perform simple administration tasks, such as managing users, starting containers, administrating storage, configuring network, inspecting logs and so on. Switching between Terminal and Cockpit web interface is no big deal. You can the manage the system’s services either from the Cockpit, or from the host’s Terminal. There’s even an embedded terminal in Cockpit. Say for example, if you’ve started a service in Terminal, you can stop it from the Cockpit. Similarly, if an error occurs in the terminal, it can be seen in the Cockpit journal interface and vice versa. It is capable of monitoring multiple Linux servers at the same time. All you need to do is just add the systems that you wanted to monitor and Cockpit will look after them.
