Performance made easy with Linux containers

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein

Performance for an application determines how quickly your software can complete the intended task.

It answers questions about the application, such as:

  • Response time under peak load
  • Ease of use, supported functionality, and use cases compared to an alternative
  • Operational costs (CPU usage, memory needs, data throughput, bandwidth, etc.)

The value of this performance analysis extends beyond the estimation of the compute resources needed to serve the load or the number of application instances needed to meet the peak demand. Performance is clearly tied to the fundamentals of a successful business. It informs the overall user experience, including identifying what slows down customer-expected response times, improving customer stickiness by designing content delivery optimized to their bandwidth, choosing the best device, and ultimately helping enterprises grow their business.

Happy Holidays: Linux Mint get a major upgrade

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

The best Linux desktop just got even better.

If you’ve been a good Linux user this year, Santa has a great new present for you in his bag: Linux Mint 18.1 „Serena.“ With this long-term support Linux desktop, which is based on Ubuntu 16.04, Linux Mint is better than ever. Since I’ve already found Linux Mint 18 to be the best desktop out there of any sort, that’s saying something.

Why? For starters, at long last you can automatically update Linux Mint. In the past, you had to manually replace Mint while keeping your personal files in a home directory located on another partition. Most other Linux distributions enabled you to avoid this problem. Now, Mint has jumped on the the easy upgrade bandwagon as well.

Serious Ubuntu Linux desktop bugs found and fixed

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Remote code execution bugs in Apport, an Ubuntu Linux default file handler, has opened a door to attacks and crashes.

If you, like me, use Ubuntu desktop, or one of its relatives such as Linux Mint, you have a bug to patch. Donncha O’Cearbhaill, an Irish security researcher, found a remote execution bug in Ubuntu. This security hole, which first appeared in Ubuntu 12.10, makes it possible for malicious code to be injected into your system when you open a booby-trapped file. This can be used to crash your system or run malware. It does not — a small blessing — enable attackers to become the root user.

The new CentOS 7 release, based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3, has arrived.

CentOS doesn’t get many headlines. But it’s still the server Linux of choice for many hosting companies, datacenters, and businesses with in-house Linux experts. That’s because CentOS, which is controlled by Red Hat, is aRed Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) clone. As such, it reaps the benefits of RHEL’s business Linux development efforts without RHEL’s costs.

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

On December 11, Linus Torvalds officially announced the release of the Linux 4.9 kernel, codenamed ‚Roaring Lionus‘, marking the debut of the sixth and final Linux kernel release of 2016.The new release follow the Linux 4.8 milestone that debuted on October 2

According to Torvalds, the Linux 4.9 kernel release is noteworthy for a number of reasons. „I’m pretty sure this is the biggest release we’ve ever had, at least in number of commits,“ Torvalds wrote in in his announcement message for the new kernel. „If you look at the number of lines changed, we’ve had bigger releases in the past, but they have tended to be due to specific issues (v4.2 got a lot of lines from the AMD GPU register definition files, for example, and we’ve had big re-organizations that caused a lot of lines in the past: v3.2 was big due to staging, v3.7 had the automated uapi header file disintegration, etc).“
