I see that C&C tools were discussed a little while ago on the list (
http://lists.opscode.com/sympa/arc/chef/2011-01/msg00084.html), but I didn’t
see a lot of specific tools mentioned. What is the current wisdom regarding
C&C, especially in an EC2 environment? I’m looking for something that can
close the feedback loop between provisioning/bootstrapping (knife/fog,
CloudFormation), configuration (Chef), and monitoring (Nagios/Cloudkick).
Slide #29 of
illustrates what I’m looking to do.
I came across
and nanite looks promising, but I haven’t seen much about it since then. The
previous mailing list discussion that I linked mentioned RunDeck, and I see
that Chef already integrates well with it, but I’m not sure if it has the
callbacks/API to allow it to automate the provisioning and configuration
Thank you in advance for any information; it is appreciated.
