Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking for a web-based tool allowing me to do the following:

  • Have a single web-based UI for multiple servers
  • Services monitoring: for each server I want to see all running daemons and be able to start/stop/restart them (just like windows services)
  • Have a interactive web-based shell allowing to execute commands to multiple machines directly from my browser
  • Fast scripting: be able to create scripts directly in my browser and run and deploy them to all my machines

Do you know if there is something similar around ?

There are some commercial web interfaces for managing linux servers.
cPanel and DirectAdmin are the most popular examples.

You can have a shell in the browser using something like Gate One (video demo).

There is also Zentyal, a linux distribution that was designed to be administered through a web-interface.

There's some commercial offerings which try to deliver this (Tivoli, unicenter TNG, Openview, BMC) IME, they mostly deliver this by being a jack of all trades rather than a master of one.

Nagios, Munin, Cacti

Have a interactive web-based shell allowing to execute commands to multiple machines directly from my browser

Canonical Landscape, and while it's not web-based (how 'interactive' should system admin be?) there's clusterssh

Fast scripting: be able to create scripts directly in my browser and run and deploy them to all my machines

Isn't that the same as the previous requirement?

There's Webmin, but personally I don't fancy the way it does things. Your mileage may wary.

Yes, I know Webmin but it is more for management and configuration. I would like something for daily management. –  Matteo Mar 27 '12 at 11:45
