Speaker: Gabrielle Roth
Topic: 600 Simple Strategies for Sanely Summarizing Cisco Syslogs
Syslog is a handy troubleshooting tool, but only if you actually read
what's logged. I wrote a Cisco syslog parser & reporter as part of our
network fault-management system. We'll go over:
* network management basics
* why we needed this specific tool
* why I created my own tool from scratch
(instead of using an off-the-shelf solution)
* how I did it & what the results were, and
* what I'm going to do next.
You don't need to be a Cisco engineer or even know much Perl to get
something out of this talk.
As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.
