New Year, New LINSTOR GUI

LINSTOR Web UI

LINSTOR – an orchestrator for Linux block storage, used to be a command-line only tool. Not anymore!

In 2021, we released LINSTOR GUI, based on Vue.js framework. You can find a short introduction on LINBIT’s website and can still install it from the LINBIT official repository, see details in the LINSTOR guide.

A brand new version is coming in 2022, written from scratch and based on react.js, is entering the final stages of completion.

Key Benefits and Features:

  1. One place for all LINSTOR administration.
  2. The dashboard provides a quick overview and status of your LINSTOR cluster.
  3. The inventory gives you a one-stop-shop to view and manage all hardware resources (e.g., nodes/storage devices/IP addresses).
  4. Software-Defined is the place you can manage all the LINSTOR definitions and resources.
  5. Error Reports is the LINSTOR cluster health monitoring component.

How to install?

Currently, the new packages are located in the staging phase of the LINBIT official repository. Simply add /staging between HashTag and /yum.

Original sample:

				
					

# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/linbit.repo

[drbd-9]
