We have two great talks for November lined up!

Alex from will talk about using ES + Puppet Reporting to reduce technical debt and answer questions about the health of configuration runs on your nodes with Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana. Questions about resources, catalogs and run times can be answered by using the Puppet Dashboard or Puppet Enterprise but there are limitations. Putting the reports and run metrics into Elasticsearch gives users full text search and filtering. Also, you can perform metrics and aggregations over resource numbers or run times. Kibana graphs are also a great way to supplement the dashboards available in Puppet Enterprise.

We also have a speaker from Arista, John Corbin Lead Puppet Developer at Arista Networks

John brings over 30 years of server, storage, and network engineering experience working with large enterprise customers around the world. He is an author and inventor. Currently he leads the EOS+ Consulting Services team at Arista with a focus on applying DevOps principles towards building and operating hyper-scale data center infrastructures. John will demonstrate how to install the puppet agent on an Arista Switch and how to use puppet to configure a 4 node leaf-spine.

Super excited about these two talks. Alex's presentation was fantastic at PuppetConf and I look forward to hearing what Arista has to show.

Food & Drinks for this meetup are sponsored by Arista.

Look forward to seeing you in November! Bring your friends!
