Agenda

This was approved, he will be provided with an OpenMesh node as they have been messed atround with less and should be more relaibale. It is also the platform that will be used on SOWN in the future making it easier for the student to contribute back to SOWN.


  • Admin tasks
    • Updating SOWN's global zone file through ECS (daveruss)
    • Investigate/deploy better service dependencies for backups and radmatrix checks, so IRC/email doesn't get so heavily spammed (crwilliams)

crwilliams has done some work on this last week and things seem to be better. In addition some work has been done on the ECS network by DaveTaz which has resolved many of the issues. (Flush arp cache).


  • Icinga Alerts
    • Monitor Procs

Icinga seems to be complaining about too many processes. It was decided to look at what was running to check that something has not gone wrong and if all is running normally increase the limit.

    • Dev Disk /home/

Stuart needs to clear out some of the 18Gb in his home directory. (Much background grumbling)

    • Committing createicingaconfig.php

Page now prompts to confirm that the user wishes to commit the changes they have made.


  • Prioritisation of tasks/projects for the coming year

This has been discussed informally in the past. This meeting formalized those discussions.

    • New VPN / Auth
    • SOWN[at]HOME OpenWRT packages

This is the top priority.

    • SUSU N-node replacement

Replace with an outdoor Cisco. The University will be asked to provide the Cisco and the training for working at heights. SOWN would then provide the expertise on aerials and outdoor wireless. We looked at the 1552 and the 1310 as possibel Cisco devices
