  November KyOSS: cli tricks, OpenNMS, usNIC

Date: 	Wednesday, Nov 13, 2013
Time: 	6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: 	LVL1 Hackerspace, 814 East Broadway (rear), Louisville KY 40204

	*Something for everyone tonight: cli stuff (pipes, named pipes, and 
process substitution), OpenNMS (network management system), usNIC 
(userspace NIC) for faster ethernet communications. *

	Three great topics tonight (and something for everyone!):

  * *Command Line Magic* - Barton will give us a few tricks for using
    the command line effectively: pipes, named pipes, and process
    substitution. Here's what got the topic started:

  * *OpenNMS* - Deven will tell us about Open Network Management System
    (http://www.opennms.org/), must-know stuff if you use networks
    (which, you may have noticed, you are doing right now).

  * *usNIC (userspace NIC)* - Jeff will be telling us about how to get
    ultra low latency ethernet communications by bypassing the operating
    system. This will be a technical presentation that will look at the
    low-level operations involved in ethernet communications. (Jeff
    develops open source software (OpenNMI) for Cisco, and it looks like
    usNIC will soon be part of OpenNMI.) You can get a glimpse of what
    he'll be talking about by skipping 20 pages or so (the marketing
    hype) into this slideshow:

  * *Free OPA Pizza* - treat yourself to some free Papa John's pizza,
    compliments of the Open Pizza Alliance (in exchange for a brief
    solicitation for your membership and support).

All things Linux. All things Open. Come and meet your fellow geeks. 
Discuss open source, open data, transparency, security, encryption, 
intellectual property, spontaneous organization, erlang, pizza, etc.
