Please reach me on[masked] if you have trouble finding the place. Thanks to Nick Singh and JKVine Consulting for putting their hand up and helping us out with the location. More updates to come.

Guest Speaker - Liming Zhu (Principal Researcher & Research Leader, Software Systems Research Group, NICTA) has offered to come over from Sydney and talk to us about the work he and his group are doing within SPE (Systems Performance Engineering) at NICTA. It will be a great opportunity to understand what NICTA is doing in the SPE space and bounce ideas on areas of collaboration/discussions/workshops going forward.

Topic - Dependable Operation
Duration - 35mins + QA - 10mins
Brief - Modern large-scale applications experience sporadic changes due to operational activities such as upgrade, redeployment, on-demand scaling and interferences from other simultaneous operations. This poses new challenges in system monitoring, capacity planning, performance management, error detection and diagnosis.  For example, the traditional anomaly-detection-based techniques are less effective during the “sporadic” operation period as a wide range of legitimate changes confound the situation and make performance baseline establishment for “normal” operation difficult. The increasing frequency of these sporadic operations (e.g. due to continuous deployment) is exacerbating the problem. In this talk, we will introduce a number of ongoing research activities at NICTA addressing these issues. For example, we propose the Process Oriented Dependability (POD) approach, an approach that explicitly models these sporadic operations as processes and uses the process context to filter logs, traverse fault trees and conduct adaptive monitoring. 
Liming will be coming down from Sydney. If any of you have any concerns on having this included in the agenda for the night please register your concerns by the 28th of Feb 14.

We intend for CMG to be a platform for professionals, vendors, educational and research organizations with interests in Systems Performance. Come, join us and be part of the transformation. We've got an exciting future ahead and lots of great challenges to work on.

Let's work together to ensure we stay relevant in an evolving marketplace.

    Thanks guys. What are our areas of improvement. What are the things we could do better?

      I think rather than trying to improve/change, the challenge will be to maintain the quality while expanding the audience or increasing frequency
