Hi all -

The Merit Network Statistics Collection And Reporting Facility (NetSCARF)
Project will be hosting its *second* free workshop in the afternoon on the day 
*before* NANOG in the San Francisco Grand Hyatt Grand Ballroom.  We will
provide an overview of the (2.x and February release 3.0) technology (see
agenda below), future release plans, and open the floor to feedback and
discussion about how you would like to see the product evolve. 

The NetSCARF SCION software package is a public domain network statistics
collection and reporting package that uses SNMPv1 or SNMPv2u to collect
stats from network devices and reports the network performance on the web.
Release 3 is scheduled to be released early February and features 
real-time display of certain data, "clickable graphs", an administration and 
installation tool and security mechanisms to restrict access to network

For this second workshop, we have openings for the first hundred (100) that
register at If you get a chance, read the
Connexions NetSCARF article on our web page before the workshop. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at ala at or
call at 313.763.6378.
