New Special Interest Group Focuses on Open Source Monitoring
Events like LinuxWorld highlight the capabilities of hot open source projects, but what of the times in-between these big gatherings? Smaller, more consistent special interest groups allow for focused, idea-driven interactions and offer a deeper look into relevant issues. Frankly, they are more effective at contributing to and preserving particular segments of the open source culture for which intricacies crucial to advancement might be overlooked in larger settings. Open source monitoring now has its own special interest group, Monitoring SIG, organized by GroundWork Open Source in conjunction with BayLISA, the Bay Area's Large Installation Systems Administrators chapter.
