Customer Engineering Conference 2005
By scottdickson on Feb 19, 2005
Sun's annual CEC conference is coming up next weekend. A couple thousand Sun engineers from around the world will get together in San Francisco for this event. This is the main event for Sun engineers from the field to share what we are doing, what we have learned, what works well, neat tricks of the trade, etc. Engineers who work in service, in sales, and in delivery all present at the CEC. A number of us will be blogging from the CEC about the papers we see, what we learn, etc. I'll try to give an account of all I see. I hope that Clive King and Jon Haslam are presenting on DTrace again. They were hands down the best talk I saw last year. These guys get nearly as excited about DTrace as Bryan does! I'll be presenting on \*BART, the Basic Audit Reporting Tool\*. BART allows you to detect changes in groups of files and filesystems over time. One obvious (and intended) use is to alert the administrator to any unintended changes to key files, whether malicious or not. So, watch this space for new reports coming from the conference.
