> Hi,

> I finally got around to writing down my cluster-consistency checklist that I've
> been planning for a long time:

> https://github.com/oplehto/cluster-checks/
> The goal is to try to make the baseline installation of a cluster as consistent
> as possible and make vendors work for their money. :) Of course hopefully
> publishing this will help vendors capture some of the issues that slip through
> the cracks even before clusters are handed over. It's also a good idea to run
> these types of checks during the lifetime of the system as there's always some
> consistency creep as hardware gets replaced.

> If someone is interested in contributing, pull requests or comments on the list
> are welcome. I'm sure that there's something missing as well. Right now it's
> just a text-file but making some nicer scripts and postprocessing for the
> output might happen as well at some point. All the examples are very HP
> oriented as well at this point.

> Best regards,
