The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, November 10.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

    Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana

    Robert Keizer will be doing a presentation on Elasticsearch,
    Logstash, and Kibana. The presentation will focus on running
    these systems in a production environment. Elasticsearch is a
    highly available NoSQL distributed database which is primarily
    used for real-time and deep searching. When used in conjunction,
    these systems provide a very robust and feature-complete
    solution for enterprise log management.

    Rob will go through setting up and installing all three systems,
    as well as provide an overview and example of these systems.


    For this month's RTFM, Gilbert Detillieux will talk about the
    getcap(8) and setcap(8) commands, used to control Linux
    capabilities(7) as an alternative to using setuid-root
    binaries. This provides a safer way of allowing unprivileged
    users to execute operations normally requiring root permission.


    Plus, this month's meeting is the MUUG annual general meeting,
    which included the election of the MUUG board of directors for
    the 2015-2016 year (which will be by acclamation). There is
    also a notice of motion to ammend the MUUG by-laws.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

    Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: *Room 1M28*
    Manitoba Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
    between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

    Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
    on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
    or ask a security guard.
