(Hi: You're invited to the BayLISA Monitoring SIG, Weds Sept 12, 7PM.
See the meeting announcement pasted below: feel free to post it and/or
forward it along to anyone else who might be interested. Many thanks,
and hope to see you there!)


Sept. 2007 BayLISA Monitoring SIG: Data Integration

Traditionally, acquiring the tools needed to create customized
solutions that featured data persistence, data stream
cross-referencing, cross-platform deployment, distributed architecture,
and data aggregation from across multiple network domains required
extensive use of proprietary software. (Consider the example of trying
to merge Nagios, Ganlgia, SNMP, etc. data so that you can display it
simultaneously.)  Roger Ruttimann, project lead for Foundation
(http://gwfoundation.sourceforge.net/) will talk about how Open Source
components have matured to the point where building enterprise-class
data aggregation and mining tools is relatively simple.

What: BayLISA Monitoring SIG X: Data Integration
Who: Anyone interested in IT monitoring issues and tools (newbies
particularly welcome!)
When: Wednesday, Sept 12 2007, 7PM
Where: GroundWork Open Source, 139 Townsend St., San Francisco
How: 139 Townsend St. is very near AT&T Ballpark. It is two blocks from
the CalTrain Depot. Take the MUNI N, T or J trolley to 2nd and King
(ballpark stop) or take the 30 or 45 bus (among others) crosstown. The
Giants are playing a home game that evening (vs. Arizona, 7:15 start) so
things will be hectic on the streets around GroundWork: street parking
will be nonexistent, paid parking will be astronomically expensive, and
public transportation will be slow and crowded: allow extra time for
Cost: Free!!

Abundant pizza,  an extensive assortment of fine soft drinks, and lots
of snacks will be provided by GroundWork. We'll open up the doors at
6:30 or so and start the formal part of the meeting promptly at 7PM.

RSVP (not necessary, but helpful): Peter
