    I am just supper polite. Or a bit lost. You know when you first walk into a room.
    and you give that shy 'hi'

    Woop! I think Gitter is a good solution

    I'll move a questing that Peter asked via email here for others to see:

    What are you using for alerting?

    i.e. what are you using for alerts for performance issues or failures ontop of your prometheus and grafana stack? Is it something like alertmanager? What kind of things do you peeps look out for at SARAO?

    btw I saw Claude (Fortune) from DIRISA there last night - didn't get a chance to ask them if they are running Ceph yet - I know they were heading in that direction. Hopefully will see them at the CHPC conference.

    Hi all

    Hey
    sratcliffe
    @sratcliffe
    @/all (assuming that works) - I was considering the answer to @Banshee1221 and it was starting to get quite detailed. Shall we have a 'tech' channel with questions and answers so it is easy to filter these out from other news, or something else more suited to documentation type responses. Perhaps just Google Docs to start with ? Any suggestions would be welcome.
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    Probably a good idea to have a detailed tech discussions channel, more off topic as well as some other specifics

    @/all welcome! Thanks for joining Ceph Cape Town :) We already have some questions worth of creating a new room. Check out the Technical room for these discussions.
    @/all we've also got the Announcements room, watch this room for all upcoming events around the Ceph Cape Town community.

    Hi all! We need another meetup! :)
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    Hey @Banshee1221 totally agree. How does last 27'th February or 6'th March sound? I have venue options that I'm currently investigating and will keep everyone posted. If we see a show of hands here as to who would be keen I'll get onto the venue.

    @dlabreu
    @lmzxqtom Sounds good for me !
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    Is it possible to have it on a day that isn't Wednesday, for you? @lmzxqtom
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    @Banshee1221 sure :). What about 28'th Feb? ScaleConf is 7-8 March, so I'm thinking of avoiding those dates.
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    28 feb could work for me!
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    Awesome ! @dlabreu does that suit you? If there are 3 of is going it's a quorum ;)
    pvanheus
    @pvanheus
    28th Feb sounds ok - any idea for speakers?
    Daniel De Abreu
    @dlabreu
    @lmzxqtom Ya man I am good to meet even if we have some dinks only would be great!
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    Great. I'll send out an email from cephcpt. @pvanheus what about a session on ceph deployment and monitoring? Any other ideas welcome.
    pvanheus
    @pvanheus
    yeah @Banshee1221 I know you're super busy but any way you can talk about Ceph deployment on Ilifu?
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    uh... yeah I guess I could try to whip something up on that... I'll have to go through all my old non-exhaustive notes and try to remember all of what I did lol
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    @Banshee1221 sounds good :) can I pen you down for a talk :)
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    sure I can probably do that, but it probably won't be a long talk

    @SKAJohanVenter Hey Johan, we are trying some Ceph here at my new work.
    I am looking for a Hardware provider that can work with us on a custom hardware solution just like you have at the SKA
    I remember from our first meeting that the company that sponsored the snacks on that day is your hardware provider and they can make custom systems, I would like to know if you can provide me with the phone number or an email so I can reach out?
    Thanks.

    @SKAJohanVenter
