A two day workshop on the Standardization of Kannada Computing Terminologies has been organized on January 28-29, 2012 at: Center for Internet and Society, Bangalore with the help of CIS and Sanchaya (sanchaya.net), under the FUEL (Frequently Used Entries for Localization) project. The workshop aims at the community review and standardization of frequently encountered computing terminologies in Kannada. Also, this workshop is first of its kind wherein discussion amongst Kannada linguists, translators, journalists, writers and users would take place and a consensus would reach upon the final translation of computing terminologies in Kannada. FUEL Kannada Evaluation meet mainly aims at solving the problem of inconsistency and lack of standardization in software translations.
FUEL tries to provide a standardized and consistent computer interface for users. FUEL Kannada Evaluation meet will be a concrete move towards the aforementioned problem and after the meet, FUEL will come with the standard translation of entries in Kannada language for the first time that are frequently being used by a normal user. This is a community project initiated by Red Hat. We invite linguists, translators, and users to participate who are serious to the cause of localization of computer in Kannada language.

Those who doesn’t like configuring a long list of alert mechanism of OMSA on Dell servers, here comes a savior – check_openmanage Nagios plugin. Making life easier.
More info on this plugin:
check_openmanage checks the hardware health of Dell servers running OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA). The plugin can be used remotely with SNMP or locally with NRPE, check_by_ssh or similar, whichever suits your needs and particular taste. The plugin checks the health of the storage subsystem, power supplies, memory modules, temperature probes etc., and gives an alert if any of the components are faulty or operate outside normal parameters.
Here are some of its results:
dell-server01 ~$ check_openmanage
OK – System: ‘PowerEdge R710′, SN: ‘XXXXXXX’, 72 GB ram (18 dimms), 1 logical drives, 2 physical drives
nagios-server ~$ check_openmanage -H dell-server02
Physical Disk 1:3 [Seagate ST3300007LC, 300GB] on ctrl 0 needs attention: Failure Predicted
It’s neat output and nagios ability to keep us alerted about server issues via email, sound alert through nagios plugins etc makes it feel good to keep a healthier RAID array running on servers.
