See how Red Hat's Session Recording project is using Systemd Journal to store and playback recordings of terminal sessions. Wonder at the challenges the project faces, such as dealing with various terminal types, character encodings, random playback positioning, etc.

Red Hat's customers in financial, medical, government and other areas have been asking for a session recording feature for a while, and so the User Session Recording project was started.

Nikolai Kondrashov is going to introduce our project briefly and then show how we use Systemd Journal to store and playback recordings of terminal sessions for our Cockpit UI. He is going to talk about limitations of, and possible improvements for this solution, and then about other challenges the project faces: dealing with different terminal types, character encodings, implementing recording playback, etc. And, of course, there is going to be a demo!
