System Administration Tools for the ARM Build Farm

Project Description

The Fedora ARM Koji Buildsystem or "farm" consists of 23 ARM builder systems which will grow to 38 by the end of this semester. As it grows, the need for efficient system management tools increases. The previous semesters' students started the work of setting up nagios (monitoring) and [func] (group control) tools.

This project involves configuring these tools to work with all of the systems in the ARM build farm, as well as setting up and configuring the puppet (configuration management) tool.
