There has been an up and coming categorization of engineers in the Drupal world that specialize in what we call DevOps. DevOps entails managing the infrastructure and workflow practices to deliver enterprise level sites in complex environments. This should span everything from automated testing, change management tools like puppet, branching strategies, continuous integration, performance and anything else that falls in this category.
Please make every effort to keep posts in this group on topic. We will do our best to assist, but this is not a dumping ground for random requests and development problems.

how to manage Drupal team with multiple developers of Drupal working collaborative on a large scale project
I have a question about management of Drupal projects. I search the forums but cannot find any complete solution for it.
In large scale web projects that need a team for development I don’t know how it is possible to development simultaneously with a team of developers. In Drupal projects I think about 85 to 95 percentages of project is configuration by using modules and only 5 to 15 percentages of remaining needs to write and develop Drupal modules which depends of course on requirements of projects.Read more

It's got emacs, puppet, git, working yum, varnish, memcached, solr, PHP53 (nothing fancy), apache, exposes all these services as ports in case developer wants to use mamp or whatever, some more stuff, and the best part: RunDeck...

I'd be interested in hearing/seeing from folks here what your preferred "master" server monitoring cocktail looks like. I'm continually tweaking mine, just tonight adding a Nagios plugin to help me ID when MySQL may be restarting frequently due to corrupted pages (or whatever.) Noticeably absent from the attached screenshot is anything directly output from Drupal, but I never said I was done. :-)
What does your list look like?
