June 9th, 2015 Regular MUG Meeting
June 9th 2015 MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
Nagios is known as the industry standard in IT infrastructure monitoring. Nagios Core is the free open source version and is one of the most customizable IT monitoring tools available today. Nagios Core allows you to design and monitor your infrastructure in a number of different ways. However, with this customization often comes confusion, as no two Nagios Core systems are alike. Rob Campbell will demonstrate the core components of Nagios Core and how they interrelate to each other, so that you can look at any Nagios Core system and figure out exactly what it’s doing. He will also include tips on designing a Nagios Core system that is easy to understand and manage.
The amount of data we're generating is staggering: disks overflow with photos, music, and media. Most of it is downloaded from the net but a growing number of media is user-generated content.Backup solutions promise to keep your data secure in the cloud, but any systems administrator will tell you that storage isn't free, nor is it infinite. And then what happens when you eventually shake off this mortal coil? Will future generations know what to do with boxes of "spinning rust", funny looking USB keys, SSD cards, or even CD-Rs? Are we building the Library of Alexandria; doomed to perish by the ravages of bit rot and incompatible formats? Or is our data ephemeral enough where it doesn't matter if future generations can reconstruct our day-today existence? We'll explore these questions using our traditional "fishbowl" panel discussion where the path of the discussion is up to you! Bring your questions, comments, concerns (and solutions! we like those too!) to the meeting and prepare for a lively discussion!
Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and much more! We'll also be meeting for dinner at Red Lobster in Novi after the meeting.
Hope to see you there!
