Weekly Snap: OSBConf, Puppet Conf & NSClient++

weekly snap22 – 26 September was packed with events – while driving up to Cologne for the OSBConf and flying down to San Francisco’s Puppet Conf, we managed to squeeze a mini-guide on NSClient++ in between.
Eva started as usual, counting 64 days to the OSMC with Reiko Streng’s presentation on his “Monitoring Environment based on OMD”.
She continued to thank OSBConf 2014 sponsors while Markus reported live from the OSBConf in Cologne with photos and stories galore.
Thomas W too gave his review of the OSBConf, sharing details on the talks ranging from Bareos and Puppet, to Grau OpenArchive and Ceph.
Meanwhile Michael dialed in from San Francisco to share his impressions of the Puppet Conf 2014.
To end the week, Christoph finished up his blog series on NSClient++, adding a post on installation with SSL and gnoMint.

Weekly Snap: Neon 110 & Coshsh, Confs & Camps in San Francisco

weekly snap18 – 22 August offered an eclectic mix of subjects – from sys admin and handyman tools to configuration generators and analyzers.
On events, Eva counted 99 days to the OSMC with Gerhard Laußer’s talk: ‘Coshsh – Configuration Generation’ while Bernd made plans to join Puppet Conf and Icinga Camp in San Francisco.
Continuing the travel theme, Thomas shared his thoughts on the troubles of flying with and without Swiss army knives as Ronny reflected on the excitement of discovering new sys admin tools.
Lastly, Georg helped bring about a firmware update for the Neon 110 network thermometer and Gunnar offered a peek into a new configuration analyzer for Icinga 2.
