Cockpit is a beginner friendly web-based Linux server manager that lets you manage a remote Linux system through a browser window. With Cockpit, you can view system log entries, monitor network activity, start and stop services, and more! Learn more about this useful app and how to install it on Linux.

Cockpit is a Red Hat sponsored free and open source web-based system management application. It uses a secure shell (SSH) client to access remote servers. Thanks to responsive design, the user interface automatically adapts to different screen sizes which, in turn, facilitates easy access via smartphones.

While many Linux sysadmins spend most of their time on the command line, access to a remote system using a tool like a secure shel (SSH) doesn’t always provide the most useful command output. Linux Cockpit provides graphs and easy-to-use forms for viewing performance measures and making changes to your systems.
