What is COOL?

COOL - Compact OSADL Online Lectures: Open Source meets Industry

  • COOL is an OSADL webinar series.
  • COOL takes place regularly once a month and covers new and state-of-the-art topics on Open Source software in industry, either on legal or on technical aspects.
  • COOL editions each consist of two lectures covering a special "Open Source meets industry" topic followed by a discussion round. The first "basic" lecture provides basic knowledge with regard to the respective topic and the second "advanced" lecture dives deeper into the topic and highlights special aspects. The discussion round gives all participants the possibility to ask questions and discuss with the respective speakers and the audience.
  • COOL speakers are OSADL experts on the one hand and external specialists on the other hand who kindly agreed to share their expert knowledge on the respective topic.
  • COOL is a virtual event. The lectures are held by live video streams. Speakers will be available for questions and discussion in a video conference which will take part subsequent to the live video streams.
  • COOL in general is designed to provide support how to best and compliantly use Open Source software in industry.

Discussion and possibility to ask questions

Description COOL January 2023 edition:

It is generally known that the Linux kernel is particularly stable and scales very well among a wide variety of architectures and system sizes. However, this stability and scalability does not come by chance, but is, on the one hand, the result of a strict software development strategy and, on the other hand, of many tools that help to determine and improve its performance, but the latter is less well known. Unfortunately, the application programming interface of these tools is not completely self-explanatory and it requires a certain knowledge to get the best out of it. This is one of the reasons why the January 2023 COOL edition takes care of this topic; in addition, this topic already has been requested by a couple of OSADL members.

In the basic lecture of this COOL edition, Jan Altenberg of OSADL will explain how the performance tools are installed, configured and used and, thus, provide the basic understanding to follow the subsequent talk given by Alexander Bähr of OSADL, who will exemplify some hard-to-find kernel problems and performance failures using the named tools.

Recommended audience COOL January 2023 edition:

Software developers and engineers, hardware developers and engineers, system integrators, field application engineers, etc.
