Monitoring SIG XVII: IPV6 Era of Transformation


Stephan Baur, Sr. Director, Enterprise Architecture & Technology, Cisco

Roger Rüttimann, Director Software Development, GroundWork Open Source Inc.


In the near future the internet will run out of available addresses. To fix this problem a new addressing scheme named IPV6 was introduced to supplement the current IPV4 standard. With the benefits of having more addresses available comes the complexity, cost and risks of converting existing functioning systems to IPV6. Should a System Administrator be concerned about upgrading their network to IPV6? What are the benefits?

We'll present a high-level view of the challenges IPv6 presents to systems and network operators. We provide a short review of IPv6, what the network landscape will look like for a long time to come and provide some thoughts what IPv6 means for software, systems and network engineers -- tactically and strategically.


What: BayLISA Monitoring SIG XVII: IPV6 Era of Transformation

Who: Anyone interested in IT monitoring issues and tools (newbies particularly welcome!)

When: Wednesday, Sept 10  2008, 7PM

Where: GroundWork Open Source, 139 Townsend St., San Francisco

How: 139 Townsend St. is very near AT&T Ballpark. It is one and a half blocks from the CalTrain Depot. Take the MUNI N or T or trolley to 2nd and King (ballpark stop) or take the 30 or 45 bus (among others) crosstown. Free evening street parking can probably be found because the Giants are playing an afternoon game that day (vs. Arizona, 12:35 start) and it should be over by the time the SIG starts.  There are several fee-based parking garages around in case of parking difficulty.
Cost: Free!! 


Back to school pizza, carbonated and non-carbonated drinks, and healthy (and questionably healthy) snacks provided by GroundWork. We'll open up the doors at 6:30 or so and start the formal part of the meeting promptly at 7PM.


RSVP (not necessary, but helpful): Peter Mui, pmui at groundworkopensource.com, 415-992-4573, www.groundworkopensource.com <http://www.groundworkopensource.com/>
