T-shirt for each participant.

JOB POST: IT Positions at ExtraHop Networks



I've got exciting openings in my ExtraHop Networks IT team. If you are interested in one of these positions, or know someone who might be, please send them my way.

Current positions include the following:

  * IT Systems Support Engineer (mad people skills, some admin skills)
  * IT Software Engineer (you script, you code, you loathe PHP)
  * IT Systems Engineer (you do what sudo)
  * Senior IT Systems Engineer (you automated everything in your life except the cat)

These are the official openings currently, but we're always looking for great people who may not match what is officially listed. If you think you are a fit for a fast-moving and fast-growing company that builds an amazing product[0] then please visit our jobs page at


(Look under "Corporate Services")

Do note, however, we plan to never have a need for a Backup Tape Monkey. Geesh, this ain't the 1900s anymore.

Thank you for your time.


[0] The ExtraHop platform has been described as the "Google Earth for your Network". With zero configuration it delivers visibility into your network and applications by slurping up the wire data. If you do want to customize things, then a few lines of javascript-like code ("triggers") can let you implement all your business-specific logic. Wondering if you have experienced Shellshock attacks? We've got a free bundle you apply in minutes. Want to splice and dice the data in a different way? Use our API, send the data to MongoDB or Elasticsearch via our Open Data Stream protocols, or to generic syslog of choice. This geek's attempt at marketing is now concluded. Get back to coding, y'all!

handing out stickers.

We'd like people to volunteer for at least 3 hours during the event.

update-grub suggestions


Hi all,

I have single hdd with debian squeeze and wheezy partitions. Wheezy was 
created with debootstrap. I chroot into it to add broadcom firmware not on 
live CD's. The wheezy /boot has the expected files but, update-grub on 
squeeze only finds the squeeze /boot. GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false had no 
impace. How can I tell (GRUB) 1.98+20100804-14+squeeze1 to look for all 
bootable partitions?

Need... more... DATA!

So a while ago I posted something re: "does anybody know anything about 
VisIt?". I've got it down to subsecond epochs with 5,500 nodes (sparse graph 
database), I can't really optimize further without more data...

Does anyone have a 50,000 node sparse graph database that could use clustering 
(or suggestions on ones that might be useful to cluster)? Reasonable NDAs for 
PII or the like will be entertained.

Yes, it is open source; if you have the silicon, have at thee....
