 VPS connectivity and performance benchmark

 

Easiest and best way to find the performance of your dedicated servers or VPS’s is to benchmark them. I have covered how to do a Geekbench test on your linux server here . But that doesn’t test for variables like bandwidth. I know that testing connectivity speeds is easy as running “wget”s against some test files. But I have found a great little script which does this very easily [click to continue…]

Xen moves in to Linux Foundation

xen1 Xen moves in to Linux Foundation

 

 

 

Xen is the beloved Linux virtualization platform of huge cloud players such as Amazon, Rackspace cloud, Linode etc. Xen was previously a community sponsored project of Citrix. Now Linux Foundation has taken over the development. As written on the official Xen blog

Almost a year ago, I floated the idea within Citrix of finding a non-profit home for the Xen Project. At this point, I had worked for and with the Xen community for just over a year. We only just implemented community-led Governance and it was clear that at some point Xen would need to become a truly vendor neutral project. You cannot imagine how pleased I was, when almost immediately I got full support from Citrix management to pursue the idea of finding a vendor-neutral home for Xen. We looked at various options and it quickly became clear that The Linux Foundation was the most natural fit for the Xen Project. And then the hard work to pull everything together started … but this is a story for some other time. The good news is that as of today, The Xen Project is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project with an impressive Advisory Board consisting of companies that will contribute to, fund and guide the non-technical aspects of the Xen Project.

gsmartcontrol How to view hard drive SMART data on Ubuntu with GSmartControl

 

SMART data from your hard drives or SSD’s are often valuable to determine the health of the drive and other information such as how many hours it worked.  There are several programs on windows to do this and I have covered about one 2 years ago here http://www.ruchirablog.com/how-to-view-usage-time-of-your-computer/ . There are few SMART data monitoring tools available for Linux such as smartctl but those are command line tools.
