Slides for “Understanding Nagios Core”

June 9th 2015 MUG Meeting

 Registration is closed for this event
Regular 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.

Robert Campbell is an Information Security Analyst at Answers Corporation. He has worked in the IT field for the past eight years, with a focus on information security for the past three and a half years. Robert holds a Bachelors in Information Security with a minor in Information Assurance and is a Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP), Certified Security Compliance Specialist (CSCS) and is currently working towards his Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. Robert’s current projects include working toward HIPAA and FedRAMP compliance for Answers Corporation, designing and managing a logging/SIEM solution using AlienVault’s OSSIM, as well as vulnerability and security management using Nessus and a variety of other tools.


Digial Archiving

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!
