Multiple concurrent uses

Fri Feb 17, 2017 9:23 am


This is my first post as I'm about to make my first purchase of a Rasperry PI 3 and wondered if anyone could tell me if it's possible to do / install the following on one device:

1) SoftEther VPN
2) Zabbix
3) Elastix

Any help or guides would be most appreciated. I work in IT but am specifically Windows and my only experience with Linux is a Zabbix VM.

The OS (Raspbian Linux) for the Pi is fully multi-user multi-tasking, so it can and normally does run many things concurrently. The Pi2 and Pi3 are quad-core too, so its reasonably fast.

I don't know what these apps you mention are. If they are for the PC they will be for Intel x86 processors. The Pi has ARM processors which are different and of course wont run x86 stuff without slow emulation.

Zabbix - There is no ARM compatible version of it to run on the pi

SoftEther - No ARM version downloadable but it is open source so you might be able to compile it yourself.

Elastix - Again no ARM version but there are other PBX solutions that do work on the Pi.

Packages in the repo are fairly old, but you can compile from source. Question then is what part do you mean to run. Agent works fine (I run it on most of my Pis), proxy/server will probably depend on how much their monitoring as to how well they work - You could always try and migrate to something larger if needed
