Abstract:   Supercomputers have changed the computing community (research and industry) in many ways in the last couple of years. The amount of processing power and the flexibility in which it can be deployed are mind boggling.
What might was left out of the equation is the lack of a sufficient monitoring and analytic tools.
This hits the system operation teams all over the world harder and harder with every step supercomputer make.
There are monitoring systems that are well known in the wild (e.g. Nagios). But do this systems scale?
What does the sysops folks want? How to achieve time series analysis?
This sessions aims to give a 'supercomputer monitoring state-of-the-union' and leads to a discussion of what the future might/should bring from the monitoring and performance analytic point of view.
