by Lars Vogdt
from Team lead of the DevOPS team at SUSE

Lars works now since more than 15 years for the SUSE Linux GmbH and is currently the leader of the DevOPS (while theyself call them BuildOPS) team inside SUSE.

Together with his team he is responsible for the backend development of the Open Build Service, the Package HUB project, internal package reviews, product creation and the build service infrastructure.

In his free time, he helps the openSUSE heroes to administrate the openSUSE infrastructure.He is currently also a member of the openSUSE review team and the glorious openSUSE Education team. By maintaining more than 500 packages inside the openSUSE Build Service, he is most of the time busy with fixing bugs, reviewing sources and responding to community requests. Beside this, his current focus is the monitoring of the available infrastructure and the availability of the provided services at all.

Thousands of running services on hundreds of machines ask the admins to pay attention. At all times, on all channels, with all available software packages that openSUSE has to offer. Lars does not only keep an eye on all devices inside SUSE R&D, he is also maintaining some of the biggest packages in the server:monitoring repository like Nagios, Icinga, Shinken, check_mk, mod_gearman, Naemon, PNP4Nagios or the monitoring-plugins (and others). The integration of some of those packages into a complex, secure and high available monitoring setup together with some tips and tricks and insights into the SUSE R&D infrastructure will be demonstrated.
