Re: Conserver on Cyclades ACS?

Thanks for your input. I'd mostly be interested in running conserver on the ACS so that I could get the sweet console program to work instead of that horrible ts_menu thing. Logs are of secondary importance for this particular setup. Telnet is a non-starter for me and SSH typically means about 347 "~"'s before I can tell the terminal what I want. ;)

It can be (has been) done, but it's not an optimal solution, mainly due to insufficient on-board storage. You can try to write log messages out to a syslog host, but that defeats the "all in a box" idea. You would be relying on your network to get UDP traffic through intact (is it on a separate management network?)

For an ACS-16, you may not have a lot of log traffic, and you might be able to get away with storing data overnight, or over weekends, and using cron to ship the data elsewhere for longer-term storage (for forensic data, etc.).

If you are evaluating the logs, and acting on them in real-time, then you usually have your log parser also on the Conserver host, which is eating more RAM on the ACS.

The ACS was much better than the TS line. Using one as a conserver itself is a challenge.

    Best regards,

I know there are several bits of information out there on how to configure a conserver to look up a Cyclades ACS, but I'm wondering since the ACS is indeed a Linux box, wouldn't it be possible to build a PPC version of conserver that would work on the ACS? If so, has anyone done it? If not, I'm thinking of trying a cross-compile, but from what I've gathered so far its a bit messy to get it going. It would be silly to reinvent the wheel.
