Brendan Gregg's "Systems Performance", plus Joyent Manta - BayLISA at Joyent SF

  • October 17, 2013 · 7:30 PM

Joyent is happy to welcome back BayLISA for the launch of Brendan Gregg's new book, Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud. Operating system performance analysis and tuning leads to a better end-user experience and lower costs, especially for cloud computing environments that pay by the operating system instance. This book covers concepts, strategy, tools and tuning for Unix operating systems, with a focus on Linux- and Solaris-based systems. The book covers the latest tools and techniques, including static and dynamic tracing, to get the most out of your systems. 

Brendan will give an overview of the book, the problems and audiences it addresses, and share insights into the research and practice behind the methodologies and tools it covers.

We'll also talk about Joyent's latest service offering, Manta, which combines a distributed object storage service with a massively parallel compute engine, right on the object server. Joyent Manta Storage Service is a highly scalable, distributed object storage service with integrated compute.  Developers can store and process any amount of data at any time where simple web API call replaces the need for spinning up instances.  Joyent Manta operates directly on objects with virtually zero data latency.

Space will be limited, so please RSVP... and put your real name in so security will let you in.

    Brendan presented an amazing wealth of information. I was sorry I had to leave before the Q&A to catch the ferry.

    BART has announced that they will be in service Thursday, so for those of you using public transit, you should have a nominally less painful trip to/from SF.

    Anyone interested in car pooling from Silicon Valley up to SFO?

      If driving doesn't work out, and if BART doesn't go on strike, you can take Caltrain to Millbrae and cut over to BART to Embarcadero, or Caltrain to 4th and King and the MUNI N/T lines to Embarcadero.

    What facilities exist for securing a bicycle at 1 Embarcadero? I was thinking of taking my bike on Caltrain (as usual), but overshooting Redwood City as I head north....

      You're welcome to bring it up - we can put it in an office somewhere.
