After 48 hours, 24 presentations, 4 workshops, a record 245 attendees and 783 cups of coffee, OSMC 2009 came to a close. A conference of firsts, this year featured broader monitoring solutions to include Nagios, OpenNMS, Zabbix and the alpha release of Icinga – well received with a review already to boot. From our side, new news came on the tools front, with LConf and joint check_IPMI plugin with Thomas Krenn on top of a refurbished MonitoringExchange.
For the first time, the official Nagios Plugins team met to take ideas and workshop onsite, and the first foosball tournament spontaneously assembled round dinner that night. Many new faces along with the known, this year’s conference was billowing with lively conversation and tweeting all the way.
For those who missed out, check Linux Magazin’s live streaming archive for presentations from the main rooms. In good will, Linux Magazin has thrown in Kristian Koehntopp’s MySQL Monitoring session as a freebie to try. Additionally all presentation slides will be loaded soon onto the OSMC 2009 page, free for all.
A huge thanks to all the speakers, Linux Magazin, Thomas Krenn the whole NETWAYS team and to the many attendees who made the OSMC the success that it was – see you next year for more monitoring mingling.
