(Hi: You're invited to the BayLISA Monitoring SIG, Weds May 9, 7PM. See
the meeting announcement below: feel free to post it and/or forward it
along to anyone else who might be interested. See you there!)


May BayLISA Monitoring SIG: Mini- to Mega-Monitoring

Between the two presenters at the next Monitoring SIG we'll span the
breadth and complexity of monitoring sites:

1) Bob will outline the modest needs of his "two servers at the colo"
configuration: he doesn't have any monitoring in place yet, so we'll
brainstorm about what he should deploy and how.

2) Charity from Linden Labs will discuss the current challenges and
future plans for the three-and-a-half sys admins managing and monitoring
the 4000+ servers(!) that sustain Second Life.  

We'll use these two examples to frame how to approach setting up and
maintaining a monitoring setup.  Newbies: bring your thorniest (or most
basic) monitoring questions and issues.  Not-So-Newbies: come prepared
to share your experiences re. successful deployment, knowledge of
specific tools and techniques, etc.

What: BayLISA Monitoring SIG VII: Mini- to Mega-Monitoring
Who: Anyone interested in IT monitoring issues and tools (newbies
particularly welcome!)
When: Wednesday, May 9 2007, 7PM

stop) or take the 30 or 45 bus (among others) crosstown. Free evening
street parking can probably be found because the Giants are playing an
afternoon game (vs. Mets, 12:35 start) and it should be over by the time
the SIG starts.
