Tim has been busy organising the next Irish OpenSolaris users group meeting -
To: [ug-ieosug] 13th Irish OpenSolaris User Group Meeting From: Tim Foster Tim.Foster at Sun.COM Date: Wed Aug 1 08:42:29 PDT 2007 Hi all, I'm happy to announce the 13th Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting: Topic Discovering Open High Availability Cluster Date Tuesday August 14th Time 7:00pm onwards Location TBD This month, we're lucky to have Nick Solter, from the Open HA Cluster community visiting Dublin who will give us a talk about Open HA Cluster, which forms the basis of one of the newer communities on opensolaris.org. Solaris Cluster, Sun's high-availability cluster software, is going open-source! This presentation will first give an overview of High Availability software and Solaris Cluster, and demonstrate how Open HA Cluster can be used with OpenSolaris and the Apache webserver to provide higher availability for web services. Nick's talk will next describe the open-source roadmap, give an overview of the source code, and walk through the steps to download, compile, install, and play with Open HA Cluster and Cluster Express. The talk will conclude with a description of the contribution process and some sample projects for community participation. As usual we'll also be doing the roundup of news since our last talk, and will be adding audio from this meeting to our podcast feed. More info at: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/ie-osug We \*don't\* yet have a venue for this meeting, so if you'd like to host it, please drop a mail to this list [ I'm actually out on vacation from Monday for 2 weeks, but will of course be at the meeting on the 14th and will try to monitor this list in the meantime: so please could someone finalise the venue for the group - otherwise, I'll assume we're at meeting at the Sun offices in East Point as per last month. ] I'd also like to take this opportunity to poll for talks or speakers for our September meeting - if you'd like to talk about anything OpenSolaris-related on Sep 25th, we want to hear from you. If you're looking for an excuse to visit Ireland, here's your chance - we'd love to have you present a talk to the user group, and will do our best to show some Irish hospitality! See you all then!

Tim's been busy sorting out speakers again for the next Irish OpenSolaris Users Group Meeting ...
Subject: [advocacy-discuss] 12th IE-OSUG meeting - Project Indiana From: Tim Foster
Hi all, We're happy to announce the 12th Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting. Topic: Project Indiana Date: Thursday 12th July 2007 Time: 7pm onwards Location: TBD July's meeting is a little earlier than usual: we're delighted that Glynn Foster will be in the country and has agreed to give a talk on Project Indiana, a project that aims to create a new distribution of OpenSolaris that's more familiar to users of GNU/Linux. If you've been keeping up with OpenSolaris, you'll know that this has been a highly anticipated, and much talked about project, and it's an exciting time for OpenSolaris at the moment. Along with his role in helping to define the Indiana project, Glynn was elected onto the OpenSolaris Governance Board (OGB) during the elections in May this year, so you should use this opportunity to pick his brains while he's in this hemisphere! - more about Project Indiana, and the latest draft of the Problem Statement at: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/indiana http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/indiana/documents/problem_statement/ This announcement is available at: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/os_user_groups/ie-osug/iosug-12/ please feel free to spread this announcement as widely as you can - this is a rare opportunity to hear from someone on the OGB. As usual, we'll be recording this meeting, and adding it to our podcast, which is available at: http://mediacast.sun.com/share/timf/ie-osug-podcast.rss We haven't yet finalised a venue for this meeting - if we have to, we'll hold it in the Sun offices in East Point Business Park near Clontarf, but if anyone else would like to offer a venue that's a bit more central, please let us know! I'll send an update on Tuesday next week. cheers, tim

The 11th Irish Opensolaris Users Group meeting is taking place tonight, and I have offered to give one of the lightning talks. So, without further ado, the slides for my lightning presentation this evening DTrace consumers I'm using fit on one line I think they qualify :).

(otherwise known as where I start looking once \*stat tools reach their limitations) So one minute a one liner - I might need to talk fast ;). Thanks to the folks at DIT for hosting us.

I gave a short presentation on SMF to the Irish OpenSolaris Users Group last night, once again kindly hosted by the folks from Trinity Netsoc, the slides are available here. Tim has done a slightly longer write up.. This will probably be my last talk for a few months, but as always if there is something thats of interest drop a mail to discussion list, and we can will organise a talk. Happy SMF'ing... Oh, and of course some credits, thanks to Tim, Sean, Nicky, Damien and the non blogging Steve for comments and suggestions, and to Liane for letting me lift and modify large chunks of her various SMF presentations.

As already mentioned by Tim the 10th Irish OpenSolaris Users Group Meeting is on the 29th of May, hosted by the good folks of Trinity Netsoc. Yours truly is once again braving the front of the lecture hall, and this months topic is (drum roll please) Service Management Facility (smf(5)) . We have proposed some basic ideas for what will be covered, but I haven't started to put together the talk yet, so if there is anything in the realm of SMF (and of course within reason) that interests you please let me know and I'll try to cover it.  With thanks to Liane for the title which I so gratuitously borrowed.

From: Tim Foster To: Irish OpenSolaris User Group Subject: 9th Irish OpenSolaris User Group Meeting Date: Mon, 16 Apr 2007 22:26:42 +0100 Hi All, We're happy to announce the 9th Irish OpenSolaris User Group Meeting. This month Eoin Hughes and Alberto Ruiz will be presenting a talk called "OpenSolaris for GNU/Linux Users". Date: Tuesday 24th April 2007 Time: 7pm Location: TCD, Robert Emmet Theatre, Arts Block This talk aims to give an introduction to some aspects of OpenSolaris that could prove helpful to users coming from other UNIX-like operating systems. Eoin and Alberto plan to cover things like /proc, SMF and the SVR4 packaging system - enough to get you started with using OpenSolaris. If this topic proves popular, we'd be happy to do similar talks in the future about other aspects of OpenSolaris that may appear different from other operating systems you've used in the past. Likewise, if you'd like more in-depth technical discussions of any of the things covered, then we'd be happy to oblige. We'll probably head to a local pub afterwards to continue the discussions - everyone welcome! Announcement at http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/os_user_groups/ie-osug/iosug-9
