Do you people prefer a central tool to manage multiple servers? If so, what are some good opensource ones you'd recommend? is Kibana a thing? I'm a CLI purist, and I'm a little concerned about a large attack surface on something so centralized

Thanks!

    A bastian host [or a few of them], a bunch of mapping/routing files and the almighty ssh. That's what I prefer. Others like Ansible or cheff. Or puppet. I prefer the homemade ssh wrapper approach

    You could use Ansible, although idk if you can set it up to pull the playbook instead of pushing it.

    ansible ftw.
    Nagios, or Prometheus, with a central service point.
    Kibana is a *thing*, but needs an EL, or EF stack along with it, and maybe redis, to collect the logs. gl using ansible, and pure cli for central logging.
