PDXPUG: August meeting

When: 7-9pm Thu Aug 15, 2013
Where: Iovation
Who: Mark Wong
What: YAMS Aren’t Sweet Potatoes

We’ll be moving back to our usual location at Iovation for our August meeting. Mark’s going to tell us about a monitoring tool he’s been working on:

“YAMS (Yet Another Monitoring System) is a project that probably should be named by someone more creative. See why I developed a collection system to handle more than 1,000,000 metrics per sample at Emma, and some of the fun queries that are written to retrieve the data.”

Mark gets to work on the database systems at Emma, Inc., where Postgres is the primary relational database system used to manage over a terabyte of data.

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.
