"How Fuel Uses Puppet to Deploy OpenStack" - Christopher Aedo

Master or masterless, sequencing solutions, giant catalogs, getting in sync with upstream community manifests, and more - Christopher Aedo (from Mirantis) will talk about the lessons learned while building Fuel, the open source OpenStack deployment and management tool.

"Advanced Metrics in PE Puppet Server" - Chris Price

In this talk we take a look at some of the advanced metrics that are tracked inside of Puppet Server in Puppet Enterprise. We'll look at some settings, tools, and scripts that you can use to get detailed information about how your server is performing, what operations are taking the most CPU time, etc. We'll also get a sneak peak at some of the improvements that will be coming in a new PE release in the very near future.

Get in touch with meg@ puppetlabs.com if you're interested in talking (even briefly!) about how you're using Puppet. Also, let us know if you'd like to be on the schedule next month! You don't need to be an expert to speak - we love to hear about what folks are doing with Puppet.

If you have an idea for what you would like to see presented, please post those ideas in the PDX Puppet Google Group.

Meat, veggie, gluten-free, and vegan pizza will be available. The office is wheelchair accessible, and has an elevator. There is bike parking on the street and just inside the parking garage at the corner of Stark and SW 1st Ave. Parking is available on the street or at one of the many pay to park lots near the office.
