LCFG: A Practical Tool for System Configuration. A SAGE Short topics in System Administration book. This contains the most up-to-date information on LCFG usage.
LCFG Build Tools - This is a set of documentation covering a suite of tools which are available to aid the development of LCFG components and software. These documents supercede anything in the "Complete Guide" which covers build tools.
Dynamic Network Configuration with LCFG - An explanation of the LCFG facilities for configuring nodes dynamically for use on different networks. This is published separately since it intended for use by end-users and includes a "quick start" section for using laptops on remote networks. [bib]
LCFG Users Days were held in 2008, 2009 and 2010 in the University of Edinburgh School of Informatics. Talks were contributed by computing staff from various schools covering the range of uses to which they put LCFG.
The University of Edinburgh held a one day tutorial workshop on System Configuration & LCFG on 13 June 2007. This gave attendees a good grounding in LCFG from the people who design and maintain it. Slides, teaching materials and recordings from the workshop are available for download. See the tutorial workshop page for full details.
An LCFG workshop was held in Edinburgh University on 20th December 2006, you can view the slides online.
SmartFrog Meets LCFG - Autonomous Reconfiguration with Central Policy Control - Research work from the GridWeaver project which uses a combination of SmartFrog and LCFG to do dynamic reconfiguration. [bib]
Large Scale Linux Configuration with LCFG - from the Atlanta Linux Conference in 2000. A good overview, but somewhat out of date. This update describes the changes between the version described here and the current (ng) version. [bib]
Towards a High-Level Machine Configuration System - The original LCFG paper from the 1994 LISA conference. Now out of date, but a good introduction to the principles. Also published in the book Selected Papers in Network and System Administration, John Wiley. [bib]
Node Profile Specification - The specification of the XML node profile developed with the European DataGRID. The current LCFG system uses a subset of this specification. The full specification has not been implemented. [bib]
