By   |  May 20, 2006

The International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP), the Tertiary Education Network (TENET) and the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), are inviting applications for a five day Web caching and bandwidth management tools workshop to be held in Cape Town July 2-6 2006.

The workshop will focus extensively on open source technologies, such as Squid, and participants will need to have a working knowledge of Linux and using the command line.

The workshop is aimed at computer centre and IT staff whose daily job requirements include managing networks for primarily universities and research organisations with large networks. Sponsorship for the event is available and will cover travel, accommodation and all related costs for accepted applicants.

The workshop will be split into two parts with the first part covering bandwidth management strategies and approaches.

Part two of the workshop will cover Web caching using Squid including the installation and configuration of institutional level Web caches and case studies. Other topics covered will include the benefits of open source caching solutions, authentication and logging, delay pools and user quotas, traffic prioritisation, performance reporting, hardware and performance requirements, and maintenance and monitoring of institutional and hierarchical caches.

More programme details and application forms can be found at the INASP site here or on the AIMS site here.

Closing date for applications is 25 May 2006.
