Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. There’s a new release every week. Here are the highlights from this weeks 0.104 release.
Kubernetes iSCSI Volumes
Peter added support for iSCSI Kubernetes Volumes in the Cockpit Cluster dashboard. When you have container pods that need to store data somewhere, it’s now real easy to configure use an iSCSI initiator. Take a look:
Listing View Expansion
Andreas, Dominik, and I worked on a better listing view pattern. In Cockpit we like to give admins the option to expand data inline, and compare it between multiple entries on the same page. But after feedback from the Patternfly folks we added an explicit expander to do this.
Tagging Docker Images in the Registry
The Atomic Registry and Openshift Registry support mirroring images from another image registry such as the Docker Hub. When the images are mirrored, they are copied and available in your own registry. Cockpit now has support for telling the registry which specific tags you’d like to mirror. And Aaron is adding support for various mirroring options as well.
From the Future
Marius has a working proof of concept that lets you configure where Docker stores container and image data on its host. Take a look at the demo below. Marius adds disks to the container storage pool:
