The next Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Linux Users Group meeting
will be this coming Saturday, 19th January 2019 from 1pm to 6pm in the
Broad Oak Social Club, Hilsea. Talks start at 3pm.


This month we have a talk from Andrew Howe:

Load Balancing using the Linux Kernel

Andrew is a FLOSS enthusiast from Southampton, currently working as a Linux
engineer at Loadbalancer.org in Portsmouth.

This talk will provide an overview of load balancing and how Linux is used to
do it. While ‘application aware’ user-space load balancing software is all the
rage these days, the Linux kernel contains a rock solid load balancing solution
which is hard to beat in terms of raw performance. With a little knowledge,
it's possible to build a Linux load balancer to meet the needs of even the
busiest networks and environments.

Sandwiches, tech talk and excellent company guaranteed as usual, of course.
