Since its original release by Berkeley Lab back in 2011, the LBNL Node Health Check (NHC) project has become the de facto standard in the HPC community for validating compute node health and has even gained traction on cluster masters and standalone servers for doing basic system/service management and validation.

As today's systems continue to grow larger and more complex, new challenges are emerging which makes the creation of a "one size fits all" utility next to impossible.  After a brief introduction/refresher for those who might not be familiar with the NHC project, this talk will discuss some experiences with deploying NHC on large-scale systems at Los Alamos National Lab, tips for getting the most out of NHC, and directions for future development and community involvement.

In addition to taking some time to have freeform discussion about any loose threads from the conference, we’ll also take some time to decide on a venue for our next sysadmin meetup, expected to take place fall 2017.
