              Novell <>



    Our Field Trip to Novell on The SUSE Real-Time Linux Kernel
    is scheduled for next week on 19-MAR-2009 (3rd Thursday).

    At last year's SIFMA show, Novell showed off their SUSE Real-Time
    Linux Kernel and demonstrated how various financial applications
    benefited from the reduction in latency that it can provide
    (imagine the speed improvements possible by reducing the latency
    inherently found between parallel and/or clustered applications).
    At the March Unigroup meeting, hosted by Novell, we hope to learn
    about the Real-Time Linux Kernel, its features, and how it may be
    tuned to provide performance enhancements for various
    real-world applications.

    Unigroup's next meeting will be in May 2009, topic to be announced.

    Topic: Implementing Low Latency Systems
           with the SUSE Real-Time Linux Kernel


    Innovative enterprises today are increasingly using Linux-based real
    time operating systems and commodity off the shelf components to cost
    effectively create ultra low latency environments.  Based on the
    popular SUSE Linux Enterprise platform, SUSE Linux Enterprise Real
    Time is fully supported real time operating system specifically
    engineered to reduce the latency and increase the reliability and
    predictability of time-sensitive mission-critical applications and
    processes.  It is a very flexible solution that incorporates a large
    number of variables and knobs that can be turned to dedicate resources
    and/or increase throughput.  Please join us for both dinner and
    entertainment - a interactive technical session covering topics like
    CPU shielding, thread priorities, and I/O tuning, things you can
    use to create a high throughput, highly predictable and responsive
    system.  Bring your notebooks and your questions, and get some hands
    on experience with setting up and configuring SUSE Linux Enterprise
    Real Time.

    More details to be [hopefully] announced soon.

        Student Yearly Membership (with current! ID):   $ 25.00
        Non-Member Single Meeting:                      $ 20.00

      * Payment Methods: Cash, Check, American Express.

      ! Students: We are looking for proof that you are
        currently enrolled in classes (rather than working
        full-time), and as such, your Student ID should show
