This is a page about improving or modifying OpenHatch.

We call that "Hacking OpenHatch," and there is a whole category of pages about that.


The basics:

  • linode.openhatch.org is the main OpenHatch box, which runs the website.
  • Nagios is running on linode2.openhatch.org. This is also the machine where OpenHatch runs Hudson.


  • There is a nagios user on linode2. We use ssh keys for login. To get ssh access to linode2, paulproteus will need a public ssh key from you. After he's granted ssh access, you should be able to ssh nagios@linode2.openhatch.org.


  • Nagios notifications go to monitoring@lists.openhatch.org. Anyone can subscribe to this list.

Viewing the web interface, and handling the daemon:

  • On linode2, ~/nagios/secrets/ contains the mailman and Nagios web interface passwords.
  • View the Nagios web interface at http://linode2.openhatch.org/nagios3/
  • To restart the Nagios daemon, run sudo /etc/init.d/nagios3 restart


  1. Send Nagios notifications to IRC (#openhatch-auto?)?
  2. Make the Nagios web interface world-viewable.
  3. Version the monitoring configurations.
