Grafana cluster dashboard

A Grafana dashboard form my Home Lab.


Personal Laptop

Despite the majority of my professional career on MacBooks - I use a Surface Pro 6 to run … Linux. I use this for general open source development and admin.

Home Lab

I use this compact and low power Intel NUC to run docker workloads with gitops. I use this primarily for media, storage, and monitoring.

$ hdparm -Tt /dev/sda

 Timing cached reads:   7664 MB in  1.99 seconds = 3854.47 MB/sec

I have workloads running in both AWS and GCP. I use these for work related experiements, testing best practices, and creating examples e.g. CI, CD, IAM, and networking patterns.

$ yum install python python-pip -y \
