The Ganglia project has been delighted to have Google’s support for 5 students in Google Summer of Code 2014. The program officially finishes in ten more days, on 18 August.

If you are a user of Ganglia, Nagios, RRDtool or R or just an enthusiastic C or Python developer, you may be able to use and provide feedback for the students while benefitting from the cool new features they have been working on.

Student Technology Comments
Chandrika Parimoo Python, Nagios and some Syslog Chandrika generalized some of my ganglia-nagios-bridge code into the PyNag library. I then used it as the basis for syslog-nagios-bridge. Chandrika has also done some work on improving the ganglia-nagios-bridge configuration file format.
Oliver Hamm C Oliver has been working on metrics about Ganglia infrastructure. If you have a large and dynamic Ganglia cloud, this is for you.
