The king of your nodes - A powerful command and control center for your server infrastructure


Still in prototyping phase... 😄


The King server can:

  • Store applications on a Git server
    • Git branches store individual applications
  • Stores shared configuration
  • Provision stored applications out to servants
  • Provision port numbers
  • Send arbitrary commands to servants
  • Runs a clean web UI
    • Graphs to display reporting data from each servant
  • Runs a statsd server along side
  • Send emails based on reporting

The Servant servers can:

  • Auto-restart on crashes
  • Auto-cluster based on CPU
  • Report to the King about:
    • CPU / RAM / Disk Usage
    • Processes
    • Important events (crashes etc.)
    • Application events
