In what is quickly becoming a *gulp* systems management series, I am working on a sweet little case study featuring Mynewplace.com. When they aren’t listing apartment rentals online, Mynewplace.com is wrestling with server false alarms triggered by some incompatibilities between Nagios and Resin, an open source application stack they have deployed in their data center.
Mynewplace.com’s IT director John Shin was a great interview, and we often got off on a tangent talking about other aspects of his data center, including his use of Postgres over MySQL and the testing he did with Novell SUSE Linux that didn’t run out so well (he uses Fedora Core 4 today).
Look for some open source systems management original content from SearchEnterpriseLinux.com tomorrow or do some apartment hunting today. Your choice.
