Minutes


  • Intro presentations
    • 5 minute presentation at JumpStart on 27th September (Crwilliams)
      • We have been working on generating a 'wordle' or two. We need to locate some suitable photographs.
      • Need to identify some useful statistics.
      • Need to send the presentation to Jumpstart organisers early next week.
    • SOWN flyers for JumpStart/Bunfight (daveruss)
      • daveruss has redesigned the flyers.
      • We need to get these printed.
    • Introductory meetings (Crwilliams)
      • We have booked appropriate rooms for this.
      • We need to create/update a presentation.


  • Admin Tasks
    • UPS Shutdown Test Plan (Morse)
      • No progress.
    • Phone line in Zepler Server Room 1 (Davetaz)
      • Not present.
    • ISDN line (Davetaz)
      • Not present.
    • Less nagging from Nagios (Crwilliams)
      • Nagios has been found to be running 56,000 processes per hour. It seems to start these on 'minute boundaries' and therefore sown-vpn gets rather loaded, as does the network. We need a way to fix this.
      • We are going to reduce the number of forked processes by turning of child_processes_fork_twice.
      • We are also going to implement exponential backoff of alert sending.
      • We are also going to selectively disable emails for certain 'non-urgent' services.
