Don will talk about cricket.

In other words: it makes lots of pretty graphs that make it easier to understand what’s been going on with your servers and/or network. It’s really good at getting data via SNMP, but if you can get some number out of something automatically you can get cricket to graph it.

Here’s an example graph; Sonoma State’s primary internet connection traffic over the past year:

Mark will talk about what you need to know about getting data off failed drives, and other related topics in data recovery.

We all want to have good backups, but sometimes something fails; an important file on a system that wasn’t supposed to have important files, or files that got created before your backups had a chance to run. This talk is all about the things that happen when you don’t have good backups.
