                        Workload Management for Linux
                      (plus raffle for BOSE Headphones)

   We have covered many aspects of Linux clustering recently ranging from
   wiring, provisioning nodes and running jobs. Now that your cluster is
   getting useful work done, the next important step is to optimize
   workload control and maximize the efficiency of your system.
   Dr. Srinidhi Varadarajan, CTO of Evergrid, will discuss how their
   workload management technology for Linux, Load Manager, can deliver:

   1. Application consolidation, to maximize server utilization while 
      delivering a predictable level of service.
   2. Detailed monitoring of application resource usage - without
      modification to either the OS or application and with negligible

   Load Manager delivers fine grain control and monitoring of system
   resource independently across CPU, memory, network read / write &
   storage read / write.  As a user space technology, it is completely
   transparent to both the OS and application with minimal overhead
   (typically less than 1%). Load Manager enables multiple applications to
   be consolidated on a single server by placing users, groups or
   applications into Containers, and allocating resources to these
   Containers. It has a dynamic rebalancing system where unused system
   resources allocated to one Container can be reallocated to other
   Containers on the same server, thereby maximizing server utilization
   while guaranteeing SLA.s. Srinidhi will discuss and demonstrate
   multiple use cases for both consolidating and monitoring applications
   using this technology today (supporting RHEL 3, 4 & 5, SLES 9 & 10),
   and discuss how Load Manager will leverage the emerging Control Groups
   technology to deliver even greater functionality on upcoming
   distributions (RHEL 6 / SLES 11).

   Your open source feedback is needed!
   During the last 15 minutes of this meeting, Evergrid will open the
   floor to comments about which components could be open sourced and
   offer the most value to the community.

   Raffle for BOSE Headphones:
   At the conclusion of the meeting, Evergrid will be raffling off a pair
   of high-end BOSE headphones.

 Swag (Give Away):
    During/after the meeting... unusually terrific swag may be given

    After the meeting ... You may wish to join up with other NYLUGgers
    over at TGI Fridays located at 677 Lexington Avenue and 56th
    Street, second floor. Northeast corner.

 Python Workshops:
    We are rounding up a group that wants to learn Python.  This would
    be a great time to attend our workshop.

    Those interested in working on the new NYLYG Web site are
    strongly encouraged to attend also.  Work has just begun on the
    new NYLUG Jobs site.

    The workshops meet every other Tuesday, at the NY Public Library,
    Hudson Park Branch.  66 Leroy St. NY NY from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    Next meeting is May 27th.
