#followerpower Looking for recommendations on documenting network, systes, services.
Requirements would be:
- Should give a quick overview: What hosts are on the network? Which services run on which host on which ports? How do they depend upon each other?
- Should be easily editable (for developers) and provide a visual representation (for support and operations folks).
- Should support some kind of versioning.
- Optional: Supports links to wiki, git, ... .
How do you do these things?
@el_joa Ok, thanks nevertheless. 🙂 I've been reading through https://articles.microservices.com/an-alternative-way-of-visualizing-microservice-architecture-837cbee575c1 and thought about following that approach, but in order to make it *really* work for our environment would need a few modifications and process around, and I sort of thought this might be a problem already solved as I can't imagine I'm the only one with these requirements. 😉
@tpheine Hmmm, already had that on my list but it seems more a "replacement" for tools like nagios and zabbix (which is what we currently use) which do well in terms of uptime and problem monitoring but seem less helpful for documentation. Thanks nevertheless! 🙂
