This section contains notes on various services and systems I've explored or setup. These are frequently stream of conciousness notes and may have dead ends, multiple attempts, or be outdated. I periodically go through them and attempt to rewrite them to make them more consumable by others and myself.
I hope these can help guide people on their own attempts to understand the services that they host. Please always double check the facts and don't take a random netizen's personal assessment will match your use cases.
This is a mostly (95%) script-less installation and setup of OpenStack from scratch on a single host, though done in a way that the services could each be very easily broken out on to their own machines or multiple machines.
