Hello, all. I was thinking about Wednesday night's meeting and how
we briefly talked about what presentations we might like to see in 2012.
+ A recent, online discussion that I read about the release
of Linux kernel 3.2 brought up BtrFS's snapshots and sub-
volumes features. I, for one, would like to learn about
BtrFS -- not just what it is and how to use it, but also
how it works. (I need to update my mental image of what
data being stored in a file system `looks like`.)
Any BtrFS users out there? Would somebody be willing to
speak on this at a future meeting?
+ What about a talk on systemd? I generically know it is a
replacement for System V init, but I don't know much
about it, or how to use it to maximum effectiveness as a
system administrator. Anybody?
+ Anybody doing clustering with GNU/Linux? I know Red Hat
offers a "High Availability Add-On" to their Red Hat
Enterprise Linux product. I know nothing about it, and
know just barely a little about server clustering, in
general. Do any of you use GNU/Linux or UNIX clustering
at your places of employment?
+ Do any of you manage a large number of GNU/Linux servers?
Do you use the Puppet or Spacewalk (or some other)
configuration management software? I'd like to hear
As you can tell, I'm mostly interested in learning about
corporate/enterprise-type subjects. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't
find hobbyist-type subjects interesting. I really enjoyed December's
talk by Tom Lapp on video editing, the talk by Michael Schultheiss on
MythTV and Jason Corfman's talk on BeagleBoard. I hope there are other,
inspiring, home-project-type topics along with the more `serious`
What topics would you like to hear about? Any volunteers?
