  • Monitoring ZFS Pools Health / Performance
    As they said in /r/zfs `zed` is a great way to go to monitor ZFS on Debian boxes. I use that combined with a self-hosted instance of []( to monitor scrubs and replication. But with something like you can easily integrate with plain old systemd services/timers too. Of course that doesn't scratch your itch for Grafana.
  • What is the best free cloud service for backuping? | 2021-07-22
    I personally backup the other way around, from the cloud to local, and I use rclone with crypt, mount the cloud storage locally and backup with Borg and Borgmatic, and use to alert me or failed / missed backups.

    But a repository check on takes 1 hour 20 minutes (which was long enough that in its default config emailed me to say "this job is broken"). The same repository check on Borgbase takes under 2 minutes. However the archive consistency checks take ~5 minutes on both providers.

  • Simple Docker Image to monitor LAN clients through Ping and send reports through email ?

    Use «external» Healthchecks (own hosted or ). Use one of your lan devices (could be even RaspberyPI, Mikrotik router or OpenWRT - should have internet and be 24/7 running) to ping and send messages to Healthchecks. It needs to have cron and curl or wget. This is how I use this service to monitor my home
