Subject: Habitat: Automating Applications, Minus Platform and Infrastructure Hassles

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Remember the days when technology platforms sat in silos and our fierce allegiance to them did too? “We’re a Mac shop,” admins would announce. “We’re all in on Windows,” another might say.Those days are quickly fading, along with the barriers that used to separate platform and infrastructure technologies. Instead, we are moving toward a world of containers, multiple instances of virtual machines, and multiple operating systems working in tandem. This is especially true in data centers, and open source tools are helping to drive the trend.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The ability to monitor the temperatures of key components is important, whether you’re gaming, overclocking, or doing something more businesslike and running a critical server. Linux includes modules in the kernel that allow it to access onboard sensors within components. Though, that alone is not enough.
