Please check out some of the videos that give you a closer in-depth look into what Project Blackbox is all about. Thanks to Dave Douglas and everyone on the team who helped make this happen!!
Today I am acting as a point person at Sun's exhibit table at the United Nations in midtown New York, where AIT Global is holding its 18th Annual Conference, Workshops & Exhibit.
This year's topics include:
Best Practices & Solutions for SOA, IT Infrastructure, InfoSec and Web4Development.
Glenn Brunette (Sun's Distinguished Engineer) and Michelle Dennedy(Sun's Chief Privacy Officer) are both speaking today.
With only 3 hours into the event, I've already seen so much interest in this that I've almost ran out of most of the collateral I brought to give out.
The picture boards for the exhibit are quite indicative of the phenomenon.
See for yourself! (please pardon the resolution - I am doing this from the event itself!)
This is the setup.... and this is I with Glenn Brunette
The event acts as one of the platforms that we, at Sun, use to continually invest in our employees' ongoing technical advancement. One of the unique characteristics of this particular event is that it is primarily targeted toward customer-facing engineers - while a majority of speakers are themselves in customer-facing roles. This allows for an open forum for exchange of ideas, fueled by a vast array of experiences on the use of different client's requirements and technology implementations.
This year the conference is taking place September 30th through October 4th. My contribution will be a presentation on the subject of Solaris 10 Minimization: Lessons Learned from the field. The subject of Solaris minimization is near and dear to many of our customers' hearts, especially those in the Financial services space.
The topic is not something that is new, yet it has grown in visibility and importance due to increased audit and compliance requirements that financial clients need to exercise in their IT infrastructures.
Two of my back-to-back sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, October 3rd - and are as follows:
Session Id: S284161 Session Title: Solaris 10 Adoption and Minimization: Lessons Learned Track: Room: 2010 Date: 03-OCT-06 Start Time: 16:50 Session Id: S284161 Session Title: Solaris 10 Adoption and Minimization: Lessons Learned Track: Room: 2010 Date: 03-OCT-06 Start Time: 18:00
As in the past, the event promises to be really exciting and I am looking forward to it.
I DO have Sample SRM reports produced by SRM Reporter (based on SRM 1.3 product from Sun, which works on Solaris 2.6 - through Solaris 8 (inclusive). I am working on adapting the utility for being able to do the same on Solaris 10 (and 9).
For now, sample reports are available at the following URL: http://unixability.com/SRM
How to navigate the available SRM reports:
Once there, you'll be presented with a list of hosts, each host containing Daily, Weekly, Monthly report types.
You should select the host named "malish" and look at all three types of reports for that host.
All other hosts listed there are used as place holders for future development. (Currently I only have SRM running on one machine, namely, "malish").
Once you click on one of three report types, you'll be presented with a list of available reports of that type, for that particular host. The available reports are sorted by date.
Please note - since I use this machine for many experimental purposes, some reports may appear to show questionable data. If you do come across a report that looks questionable, please let me know and I'll be happy to clarify.
Any questions, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email.
If you haven't heard, on 9/12/05 (at our quarterly launch) we have announced availability of the next best thing since sliced bread.
Great job everyone!
