North Bay Linux Users’ Group

general meeting


When: Tue August 10, 2010 07:30 PM to 09:30 PM

Speaker: Glen Worstell

Location: O'Reilly Media

The U.C.S.C Long Marine lab includes the ‘costalab’, where I work taking care of 4 servers, mostly Ubuntu, and a few windows desktops.

The costalab studies marine mammals and birds all over the world. Google on ‘costalab’ to find out more about what we do.

About half of the talk will be specific to the costalab work - what information the researchers collect, how it is stored and analyzed, the benefits to the world from this research, etc. This should be of interest to a much wider audience than linux gurus.

The rest of the talk will be about our Ubuntu servers, how they are configured, how they are used, and particular tools that get heavy use (including Python, rsync, NX, rsnapshot,geany, Ksplice, and Postgres). A Q&A session will follow.
