Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly.
Here are the release notes from Cockpit 283 and cockpit-machines 281:
Services: Create timer to run every minute
In the Timers part of Services page, the create timer dialog can create systemd timers to run in “minutely” mode, which runs a command every minute on the specified second.
Machines: Summarize system and user session differences
There are several differences when running a virtual machine at the system level versus running a VM in a user session. Cockpit Machines now explains the pros and cons of each inside a popup in the Create VM modal dialog.
Machines: Virtual watchdog device support
Watchdog devices are typically hardware devices that work with an operating system to reboot a machine with it stops responding.
Cockpit Machines now has support for adding a virtual software-based watchdog device to a machine.
Please note that the watchdog device also needs to be configured within the guest operating system to be used.
