Description: Spacewalk is an Open Source Linux systems management solution that provides centralized tools to manage the lifecycle of Red Hat Linux derivative systems (CentOS, Fedora, Scientific Linux) and Debian Linux. Product functionality includes provisioning and reprovisioning systems, inventorying systems, managing software and security updates, configuration changes, and monitoring system performance. Administration and management of systems can be distributed across proxy systems in large organizations to allow more granular control of regional systems. Spacewalk is the upstream community project from which Red Hat Network Satellite is derived.

NOTE: Spacewalk cannot be used to sync entitlements for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and other Red Hat software products.
