weekly snap2 – 6 September entered autumn with plenty of hardware and sys admin tips, as well as a follow-up OpenNebula webinar.
Blerim began by recommending Apache Solr for indexing and showed how to combine it with Zookeeper to build a SolrCloud.
Georg then gave the lowdown on our all-inclusive Icinga/Nagios voice alert packages covering Starface VoIP appliance, software and onsite setup.
He continued on a USB wave, introducing Xsensior Lite the economical temperature and humidity USB-sensor as well as USB extensions using CAT5e cables.
In the meantime, Markus looked for rootkits, backdoors and local exploits with Rootkit Hunter and Gunnar offered his alternative profiler to Valgrind – gperftools.
Finally, Christian reminded interested participants to join our first OpenNebula webinar and consoled those who missed it with a repeat webinar on 11 September.
