This is not the technical problem or issue but just a programming scenario which I am facing and need to work around this and try to solve this so need some hints on this scenario.
Our team has to manage a huge number of other user's Linux machines on cloud(AWS). Every machine is either a Database server, Application Server or Web server. Is there any way to detect this programmatically.
These users are not the part of our team or company. These are simply end users and we can only manage thier linux servers by taking control with their permission. So, problem is that how we detect about their machines.
How we search in specific linux machines so that we will be able to identify that it is database server or application server for instance.
Is there any way through which we can identify the type of linux machine?
- Some developers create some linux machines on cloud and install only mysql , oracle or some other related database softwares so that it becomes database linux server which handles only database operations.
- And, some developers create some linux machines where they will install apache or some other web-server related softwares so that it becomes web server and do only web-related tasks and they cann't handle or accept any kind of database operations.
Thanks in advance.
