CMSC 340

CMSC 340, or Linux System Administration, is a class based on the LPI Linux Essentials Certification course. The class is intended to introduce the basics of system administration, such as installing a Linux system, creating and deleting users, setting file permissions, and writing scripts to automate tasks. This class was the reason I am considering pursuing a career in system administration and still learning tools and techniques to be an effective administrator for my own systems.

I enhanced this class by doing a research project with Dr. Marmorstein. We tested the average time it took to write 1 gigabyte of random data in various block sizes on 4 different filesystems using scripts and virtual machines.

Below is the poster I presented at the Honors College Presentation session.
