Gdash - GlusterFS Dashboard 1.0 released

Posted on by

At Kadalu.io, we reviewed the existing projects around GlusterFS and identified a few projects which can help the users to manage/monitor GlusterFS clusters. Gdash is one such project that provides a lightweight solution to monitor the GlusterFS. This project is now moved from my repo to Github/Kadalu organization.

Read this blog for the initial announcement of this project.

This release got a nice UI upgrade and a few more features. Highlights of the new features are:

  • Gdash now uses glustercli Python bindings from the project gluster/glustercli-python
  • The improved User interface.
  • The earlier version used the --remote-host option to execute volume info and status commands. But this option only allowed on a few read-only commands. This version of gdash runs within the Cluster, which means run it on any one node of the Cluster.
  • One of the issues with GlusterFS CLI is hostname is shown as localhost in the node where the command is executed(gluster pool list). Gdash adds a hostname argument so that it replaces the localhost with the provided hostname.
  • Login is supported, and it is very easy to configure.
