next-event-164x178There’s no shortage of talks I wanted to attend at ApacheCon North America, but I was determined not to miss Kirk Kosinski’s troubleshooting talks on Tuesday. Kirk presented two talks, one on the top 10 networking issues, and another on using logs to diagnose issues with CloudStack.

Kirk is an escalation engineer for Citrix, who has worked with CloudPlatform and CloudStack for about two years. He’s no stranger to the common issues (and weirder ones) that folks run into when wrangling their open source clouds.

No doubt Kirk could talk for hours about issues he’s helped troubleshoot, but alas – he was only allotted two.

Common Networking Issues

Kirk spent a lot of time on the first two major issues that people run into when deploying CloudStack – namely, VLAN issues.

When you hear “troubleshooting CloudStack” you might be thinking “oh, CloudStack has a lot of glitches.” Actually, it’s not so much with CloudStack bugs – it has a lot to do with the environment that you’re deploying CloudStack in.
