Introduction to Yahoo Pipes: Monitoring Conversations (Fee Required)
US Bank Tower - Ground Floor Conference Room

My next Yahoo Pipes class is scheduled for June 25th. For those who aren’t familiar with Yahoo Pipes, it is a tool that I use to monitor conversations happening across various social media sites. While Yahoo Pipes can also do so much more, I have focused this introductory class on monitoring conversations.

Why Do Airplanes Crash? Building an Open-Source Aircraft Sensor System
Galois, Inc

Presented by Chris Andrew, Kayla Seliner, Mark Craig, and Trang Nguyen.

On October 7, 2008, the flight control system of Qantas flight 72 malfunctioned without warning. The failure caused the aircraft to violently pitch down with an acceleration of -0.8g, pitching passengers and crew into the roof of the cabin resulting in many injuries. In the investigation that followed, the malfunction was attributed to a software problem in the Air Data Inertial Reference Unit. These units are utilized on all modern passenger jets, but are proprietary devices not open to public scrutiny.

This capstone project develops an open source Air Data Inertial Reference Unit using four redundant Arduino boards each with a microcontroller, 3D gyroscope and accelerometer. Faults are injected into the system through software and outputs are monitored over serial ports allowing the user to test effectiveness of fault-tolerant algorithms to mask fail silent and byzantine faults in the sensors. Failures in ADIRU systems are usually complex in nature and arise under very anomalous circumstances suggesting that fault-tolerant system design could benefit from the diverse testing and evaluation that can occur in an open source community. This project demonstrates the low entry-cost to building a fault-tolerant system for open-source design and experimentation.

PLUG Advanced Topics: Graphite

Graphite - Scalable Realtime Graphing

This talk will be my choices as to why I selected collectd / Graphite for performance monitoring my environment at home (email / web / database and test systems). The discussion will include what I looked at, why I discarded the software I did, and show some demonstrations of Graphite, Munin, and if I can get it working again, Ganglia for a comparison of some of their features. I will also discuss some of the hicups I found in configuring some aspects of collectd and Graphite.

Monitorama is an 3-day event for Dev and Ops practitioners to gather and discuss the past, present, and future of monitoring software and trends. Our lineups often include more abstract discussions of software craftsmanship and dealing with the human side of failure, but the common thread through the entire event is to advance the state of art for all software monitoring-related technologies and methodologies.

Monitorama 2024
through Gerding Theater at the Armory

What other event can say that they practice real-time failover in action? Join us again to hear talks from industry experts and community leaders discuss the newest approaches in monitoring and observability. Find out which tools and techniques are in use at some of the largest web architectures in the world.

An Inclusive Event for Monitoring and Observability Practitioners

Monitorama events bring together the brightest minds among the open source development and operations communities. Our goal is to continue to push the boundaries of observability software and practices, all while having a great time in a casual setting.

This event takes place in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. If you haven't already experienced Monitorama, this is a great chance to make our acquaintance.
