Building an embedded Linux system monitoring device

A session at Open Source Bridge 2009

Wednesday 17th June, 2009

3:50pm to 4:35pm (PST)

Update: The device isn't completely working but the talk will cover debugging, setting up a build environment, Beagleboard I/O and basics of Linux network drivers.

I will show how I built an embedded system to monitor machines on a small development network using an ARM based Linux machine with a SPI attached network adapter.

The embedded ARM device is a "BeagleBoard":http://beagleboard.org/ that records the syslogs coming from my development systems and communicates with my "power distribution unit":http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=AP9212 to reboot them automatically if it detects a system oops. My talk will discuss building software for the ARM architecture, writing a Kernel driver for a simple network device and the automation of the system.
