The goals of the Stork project are as follows:
- to provide monitoring and insight into ISC Kea DHCP operations, and to eventually add them for ISC BIND 9
- to provide alerting mechanisms that indicate failures, fault conditions, and other unwanted events in ISC Kea DHCP, and eventually ISC BIND 9, services
- to permit easier troubleshooting of these services
Stork is comprised of two components: the
Stork Server and the
Stork Agent is installed along with Kea DHCP or BIND 9 and
interacts directly with those services. There may be many
agents deployed in a network, one per machine.
Stork Server is installed on a stand-alone machine. It connects to
any indicated agents and indirectly (via those agents) interacts with
the Kea DHCP and BIND 9 services. It provides an integrated,
centralized front end for interacting with these services.
Stork Server is deployed in a network.
