How does one handle console-logging thes days?
We run a development environment with a number of small clusters of
different shapes and some tens of pc- and non-pc type nodes (mostly with
Linux) that our developers keep crashing. It would be very useful to hook
something up to the nodes to have their last screens of console-output be
available, after the fact. Is serial-console and kermit the way to do it, or
is someone building and/or selling more modern solutions? Preferrably,
we'd like to just log into a concentrator and be able to read the last
several screens logged by the just crashed node.
What are your experiences and recommendations?
Any vendors please reply off-list.
