'Open source' refers to a computer program in which the source code is available to the general public for use or modification from its original design. Open source code is typically created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and share the changes within the community. Open source sprouted in the technological community as a response to proprietary software owned by corporations.

Over 85% of enterprises are using open source software. Managers are quickly realizing the benefit that community-based development can have on their businesses. The real-time communication and transparency their developers are discovering in open source communities are exactly what internal development teams need in order to create in a more agile way and meet the increasing business demand for delivering higher-quality software with reduced development cycles.

This month, we put on our geek hats and detective gloves to learn how we can monitor our computers’ environments using open source tools. We use our laptops every day, but do we ever think about what’s going on underneath the keyboard?

This meetup will cover some of the most popular ‘Free and Open Source Software’ (FOSS) tools used to monitor various aspects of your computer environment. Tools covered will include:

• Cacti (graph based monitoring)

• Nagios (all-purpose infrastructure monitoring tool)

• NagVis (network visualization)

• nTop (network bandwidth monitoring tool)

• The ELK stack (log monitoring and analysis)

Our guest speaker this month is Greg Greenlee, founder of Blacks in Technology organization that aims to increase diversity in technology.

Greg is a Systems and Network Engineer with over 13 years of experience in the IT field in areas such as, networking, IT security, systems administration, virtualization, cloud computing, and storage administration.

BDPA is delighted to have Greg showcasing some cool and useful technologies with our members at this meetup.

Anyone … regardless of race or color … interested in tech is welcome!
