Take 2 : Linux Kernel : Server Uni And Multicore Memory/ Resource Management

Date: 08/22/2012

Time: 7:00 – 8:30pm

Venue: Hacker Dojo, Mountain View, CA

Industry trends in Uni and Multicore systems will be discussed on the context of Systems Performance and Bandwidth utilization.

This talk will then explore some of the issues leading into the Linux Kernel : Memory Management and Compute/Storage Resource utilization.

We will then attempt some follow-through depth (as much as time would permit) on Linux Kernel-specific issues vis-a-vis Memory Management and Resource Utilization.

The Linux Kernel Multicore And Multithreading Series #1: System Level Optimization Guidelines

Date: 02/14/2012

Time: 6:30 – 8pm

Venue: Hacker Dojo, Mountain View, CA

We will discuss Multicore and Multithreading guidelines in the context of x86 Processors and System/OS/Kernel-level optimizations. This is an initial, but what I consider to be, an important discussion for those holding interest in this area. Later meetups in this series will build on this discussion and its reaches into the Linux Kernel.

We will also, as we progress, offer perspectives on the efforts by relevant open-standards and software communities towards Parallelization: Servers/GPU/xPU

I will post a few introductory blogs on www.linuxeco.com for those interested in this discussion. Please register or contact me on linuxeco.com, or contact me at hackerdojo with any questions.

The Linux Kernel: A Day In The Life Of A Network Packet
Date: 01/18/2012

Time: 6:30 – 8pm

Venue:  Hacker Dojo, Mountain View, CA

Details: We will present Linux Network connection setups, packet processing and flows, and connection tear-downs from the Systems and Kernel programming perspectives.

Relevant sections of the Linux Kernel 2.6.32.2 will be traced.
