Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics: Smarter S.M.A.R.T. and related storage challenges
Free Geek

Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics

Who: Roundtable discussion, moderated by Brian Martin and Michael Dexter
What: Smarter S.M.A.R.T. and related storage challenges
Where: Free Geek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue, Portland (Left Entrance)
When: Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 at 7pm
Why: The pursuit of technology freedom

We are addicted to storage devices like hard and solid state disks.

Modern computing begins with storage and could survive quite some time without the computing part, as demonstrated by past storage devices like the Rosetta Stone for which we struggle to decode.

This means HDD's and SSD's are reliable, right?

Alas, they are not. In fact the situation is somewhat terrifying. File systems have made significant progress in the last decade but remarkably, there are still significant issues surrounding the devices they inhabit.

Storage devices are inconsistent, to put it politely, about notifying the user of existing, potential and impending problems. Built-in, standard-ish reporting mechanisms like S.M.A.R.T. exist but pose as many challenges as they address. Some storage "health" monitoring data is straight-forward, some is not:

Bring your storage-related questions, war stories and gadgets!

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 915 SE Hawthorne Blvd. after the meeting.
