Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization. It uses carefully engineered data structures and algorithms to achieve very low per-node overheads and high concurrency. The implementation is robust, has been ported to an extensive set of operating systems and processor architectures, and is currently in use on thousands of clusters around the world. It has been used to link clusters across university campuses and around the world and can scale to handle clusters with 2000 nodes.

Red Hat Directory Server / CentOS Directory Server provides an easily administered and robust solution for entities needing an enterprise class LDAP system. With support for 4 way multi-master replication, easy integration into the Red Hat suite of systems, and comprehensive documentation, it’s a good choice for both deploying a new LDAP structure and migrating from an existing one.

Covered topics will include:
Implementing redundancy through multi-master replication
Configuring clients to connect to LDAP for single sign on
Using pGina to provide LDAP auth for windows
Using Samba to provide single sign on for windows through native windows client

After attending this talk a system administrator of moderate experience with windows and Linux should be able to implement single sign on for a small heterogeneous network with little effort.
