Concretely, how does it work ?
1] You request the overlord to do some actions to minion #3 an #4.
2] The Overlord retrieve data from them.
3] Then show you the result via your console.
4] Save it in temporary tables on the minion which is dedicated to store that data – MySQL Database -.

What is the status today of that ? Well this is the first outputs :


N.B. The Binary value set to 1 means : It is a “column name“.

OurSKMS on MySQL and Rails

February 17, 2009


Before choosing how we have tried to know why due to a lack in Information Systems Management Tools.

In addition, we have choose Rails not due to the fact that it currently the hype tool. But because even if we have chosen MySQL as default database we do not depend on it.

Finally, it is a real good way to start concrete rails project.



Well, OurCMDB is always existing but is a part of the new global project OurSKMS – Service Knowledge Management System -.

Indeed OurSKMS regoups :

  • OurCMIS    Capacity Management Information System
  • OurCMS      Configuration Management System
  • OurKEDB   Known Error Database
  • OurCMDB  Configuration Management Database
  • OurSCD      Supplier Contract Database
  • OurAMIS    Availability Management Information System
  • OurISMS     Information Security  Management System

and maybe others…

Finally, I decided to create an open source project with the help of the Fedora Hosted project.


Not an easy decision. Simply because I am going to have one more task.
You could find that project at OurCMDB

The project is an open source MySQL configuration management
database – CMDB -, a repository of information related to all the components of an
information system.
