Software Freedom Day needs Volunteers!!

Software Freedom Day is coming up again soon. PLUG and the AZ LoCo will be working together to do something to celebrate this. If you are interested at all in helping with this please let Scott Gwin know by emailing j.scott.gwin@ubuntu.com and/or emailing Dennis Kibbe at denninsk@linuxquestions.net. More info can be found at:
http://softwarefreedomday.org/ . Info may be coming in the near future at the PLUG website: http://plug.phoenix.az.us/.

Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about of the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit organization Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own communities.

Monitor Services with Nagios on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)

I found this howto for installing Nagios on Linode and thought I'd share it after using it to successfully install and configure Nagios.

Nagios is a flexible monitoring system framework that makes it possible to maintain consistent monitoring of a broad range of infrastructural components. Many users use Nagios to monitor a broad range of network services over protocols that include SMTP and POP3 (email), HTTP (web), ICMP (ping), and SSH. In addition to simple uptime monitoring, Nagios also contains features for advanced notification and graphing as well as an extensible plugin architecture that allows users to develop simple plugins for accessing unique monitoring information and providing customized reports.
