One of our ironic baremetal nodes was suffering a cleaing failure. Fixing it was easy…once we knew the cause/Continue reading
Enough of us are looking at the cluster that I want an easy to read snapshot of the node state. So, I convert the csv output of the openstack command into a simple HTML table.Continue reading
