    Group intelligence pooling on this one:

    Looking for ideally a web based, but self hosted tool for tracking VPS, dedicated servers, colos, etc. in one place (for end user / customers - not for hosting business).  Something basic will suffice, but interested in something a tad more powerful that ideally integrates monitoring perhaps, statistics, etc.

    Anyone using any such thing?

    tracking definition:

    Basic stuff.  IP, credentials (optionally), billing would be nice.  Specs of the resource (CPU, RAM, BW allocation, etc.).

    Sort of a panel for end users perhaps inclusive of tools like VNC + SSH terminal.

    Yeah pretty much. :) Concentrated pile of just that.

    I keep track of things other ways, but they are getting tiring.  Something more integrated would go a long way.

    I've actually made something like this for myself, lists Provider, Disk, Memory, Virtualization, IP, Price, Term, Hostname.

    With a little work it might be github-able, didn't think anyone would be interested as it's pretty much just a bootstrap spread sheet.

    http://solusvmcontroller.com/ is almost what you are looking for but not all the way.


    Have a look at it and perhaps it will give some ideas to the one interesting in developing their own.

    It's an in-house piece of software :p


    Had thought about releasing it but there's been no audit performed and ours runs behind a protected vlan. It basically does all the above although it was/is designed mainly for those with kit in Colo.

    NodeQuery is a new project which is pretty awesome, and works well for me, nice UI and the tracking module is very simple (so you can check the code easily and make sure only the data needed is what is collected and sent) and has a nice GUI. Unfortunately, not self-hosted, if pricing is imposed then I will probably make it myself sometime as a little project.

    I just keep text files with that info on my workstation desktop.

    Edit: Missed the part about statistics...never mind.
