Back to the Fall Schedule

With the summer winding down we will be returning to our normal schedule for the fall. The next meeting will be Saturday September 13th 2014 at 11:30am at the Dearborn Libary. ** Please note the earlier time!

For the September meeting we will have David Wood of Red Hat to talk about system tuning.

Next Meeting

September 13th, 2014

The presentation will be David Wood of Red Hat talking about system tuning. The talk will be about how to tune a system for different workloads such as a VM or database server. It will go into the basics of CPU scheduler, disk elevator and other disk related options, network tuning, and memory adjustments such as swappiness and shared memory. There will also be data from real servers where tuning was used to help diagnose an issue.
