Req 1.6 - Machine OS Status
As an administrator I can check each machines OS, OS version and operational status. This is so I can tell if I have some servers that need a software update, or possibly I want to run multiple versions for software diversity.
In cases where there may be a service that is not running, it would be useful to have a display that shows whether there is an apparent OS failure. In this case I would want the display to show the last known information about the server (presumably it cannot be contacted if the OS is not running.)
There may be overlap between this requirement and requirement 1.4. I need to be able to see the Operating system and running state of each server, in addition to seeing that information for each service on the server. I would definitely prefer not to have to enter this information into Stork myself so if it can be discovered by Stork that would be preferable.
- Operating system
- OS version
- uptime since last reload/restart/reboot
