PDXPUG: January Meeting

When: 7-9pm Thu January 19, 2012
Where: Iovation
Who: Tim Bruce
What: Database Trending

Tim started a new job earlier this year and was looking at how to gather some performance metrics to measure database performance over long periods. While these will change since he works in a very fluid environment, being able to see some differences over time will allow for some forecasting as well. Tim will start by showing some of the things he’s identified, and the code he has, to track these elements and then will lead a round-robin discussion of what other people may be doing to
capture their own metrics.

Tim Bruce has been working with computers for over 25 years doing Data Management, Programming, Systems Administration and Database Administration. Currently, Tim is the Database Administrator for Conducive Technology, the company behind FlightStats.

Our meeting will be held at Iovation, on the 32nd floor of the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak). It’s right on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots. No bikes in the office, sorry!

Building security will close access to the floor at 7:30.

After-meeting beer location TBD. See you there!
