See MPU figures spreadsheet.

Topics for next meeting

  • 1st meeting in Jan, April, July, October - check MPUActivitiesList
  • Review project list -
  • Multiple network interfaces under KVM (for SL7 guests) - just a matter of documenting how to do this with virsh?
  • Using a proper capability to allow logins to student machines, rather than relying on ALL (Pending George's meeting on this issue)
  • RT 86276 - Check/confirm capabilities assigned by the 'orders' role
  • Create an install service at KB (just TFTP/PXE initially, NFS installroot later) - aldebaran VM
  • KVM XML schema
  • KVM pcid
  • review School Data Protection Statement (see ops actions) - we consider we're done, other than for Drupal
  • Access to cron (restricting such that eg apache can't create cron jobs) - get clientreport to list those in /var/spool/cron and warn about those for users no longer around?
  • Securing USB stack (security project) - including USB event central logging (to detect keyboards being interfered with)
  • Do we have any entitlements for which we should be setting the default entitlement to no-grace ?
  • review spectre/meltdown susceptibility
  • Should we cache the rpmlist files (very short lifetime - 10-20s)
  • Go through our entitlements and checking that have set to 'no grace' unless necessary
  • Code which uses inventory and needs updating:
    • PowerTool scripts for shutting down servers in emergency
    • Check scripts which are run weekly (e.g. updaterpms errors/warnings)
  • Discuss spending plan
  • Project figures and commitment
