  • Using Cgroups to Limit MySQL and MongoDB memory usage

    Quite often, especially for benchmarks, I am trying to limit available memory for a database server (usually for MySQL, but recently for MongoDB also). This is usually needed to test database performance in scenarios with different memory limits. I have physical servers with the usually high amount of memory (128GB or more), but I am interested to see how a database server will perform, say if only 16GB of memory is available.And while InnoDB usually respects the setting of innodb_buffer_pool_size in O_DIRECT mode (OS cache is not being used in this case), more engines (TokuDB for MySQL,…

Recently when I've rented cars I've increasingly asked for a Ford. Usually a Ford Fusion. It's true that I like Fords, but that's not why I ask for them when renting. I'm more concerned about a consistent user experience in the car's infotainment system. I have a 2010 F-150 that has been a great truck.

At Crazy Friday (OIT's summer developer workshop) we were talking about using the OAuth client-credential flow to manage access to internal APIs. An important part of enabling this is to use standard API management tools (like WSO2) to manage the OAuth credentials as well as access. We got down a rabbit hole with people trying to figure out ways to optimize that. "Surely we don't need to check each time?!?," "Can we cache the authorization??," and so on.

  • Errors and Error Handling in KRL

    18 Jun 2015 | 9:25 am

Conveniently, KRL is event-driven. Consequently, using and handling errors in KRL feels natural. Moreover, it is entirely consistent with the rest of the language rather than being something tacked on. Even so, error handling features are not used often enough.

Persistent Compute Objects, or picos, are tools for modeling the Internet of Things. A pico represents an entity—something that has a unique identity and a long-lived existence. Picos can represent people, places, things, organizations, and even ideas.

    2 Jul 2015 | 10:50 am
    How can IT achieve the flexibility and agility it needs to offer multiple types of applications in multiple locations? Just as enterprises take advantage of applications hosted in multiple locations (i.e., public clouds, private clouds, or SaaS applications), they take advantage of different networks for different reasons (i.e., performance, backup, remote access). These could be MPLS links, ATM links, traditional Internet connections, or VPN lines. Enterprises, in effect, are already building hybrid networks, and those combined with the elements of hybrid clouds create the hybrid…

This percentage increases along with the size of the company, with some larger organizations using 100 percent virtualized systems.

    2 Jul 2015 | 10:50 am
    To increase agility while lowering costs, IT organizations are using virtualization and cloud-based infrastructure services to consolidate and reduce the number of physical servers and data centers across the enterprise.

This percentage increases along with the size of the company, with some larger organizations using 100 percent virtualized systems.

    There is an extremely harmful type of computer virus which is currently doing the rounds. These are called CryptoLockers. Cryptolockers spread primarily via email attachments. Once installed on your computer the virus will encrypt (and damage) any files it has access to. If the infected computer is on a business IT network, then the virus will damage any files it has access to on the server. All this takes place in the background without user knowledge. The first time you’ll know about the infection is when you’re trying to open Word, Excel, PowerPoint or other types of documents on your…

    Back in May last year, the EU’s Privacy and Communications Directive came into force. Commonly known as the EU cookie law, the government decided to phase its implementation after realising that most websites were unprepared for it and even experts seemed unsure of its implications. That decision meant that the Information Commisioner’s Office (ICO) wouldn’t start enforcing the law until 26 May 2012. With that date fast approaching, some websites are now scrambling to comply. Others are doing less, or nothing at all. So, what is the cookie law, and do you need to worry about it?

Companies in these regions and across the globe continue to outsource their data center operations, causing both wholesale and retail colocation businesses to grow at very healthy rates.

The technology market has developed quickly because of innovation and (in the case of the Internet, for instance) a relative absence of government intervention. But the growing unwillingness to resolve difficulties and even disputes privately and nonviolently is taking its toll on both the industry and the culture at large.

    July 2nd 2015 was the 30th anniversary of one of my all time favorite movie “Back to the future.” In order to see the greatest possibilities offered by Big Data, Data Scientists will need to go back to the future using machine learning to drive data insights.

Many of the data services and platforms that have come on the scene in recent years emphasize the accessibility of data to a broader spectrum of users – through self-service portals, online analytics, and even mobile apps.

    DevOps Philosophy and the Four Reasons PagerDuty Chose Not to Build a Native Chat Tool Transparency and collaboration are at the core of DevOps philosophy, and ChatOps is an important aspect of both. ChatOps puts an entire team or organization’s work in one place – everyone’s actions, notifications and diagnoses happen in full view. A native PagerDuty chat client would be designed for use during incidents, and wouldn’t replace the chat client you use every day. Having two different chat records, which a native chat client would encourage, runs counter to the DevOps philosophy.

  • Is Your Anti-virus Software Doing More Harm Than Good?

    admin
    22 Jun 2015 | 5:13 pm
    What you need to know about your anti-virus software to protect your business. There are way too many companies that either don’t keep their anti-virus software up to date or assume the latest version protects their data from malware and hackers. There are far too many companies that wait to purchase and install anti-virus software after a virus or breach occurs. Both do companies more harm than good. These can be knee jerk reactions, and frankly by the time your network or workstations have a virus, it’s too late. Also, anti-virus software struggles to stay ahead of hackers and malware.

  • Four Steps for Building a Successful Enterprise Metadata Catalog

    With the fast-growing interest in data lakes — a storage solution that allows structured and semi-structured data to live in the same place — attention is turning toward metadata as a way to organize large amounts of diverse enterprise data. Metadata is an ambiguous and generic term, but it most commonly refers to attribute names, data types, relationships, basic data quality metrics, usage stats and access controls. Metadata is literally data about data and thus is often left unwritten — stored only in the heads of those in the know. Capturing and harnessing this metadata in a robust,…

  • Processing Big Data Using 1.5KB

    Lior Redlus
    22 Jun 2015 | 3:36 am
    During one of our data-munging sessions here at Coralogix, we found ourselves needing to assess the cardinality of large data sets. Getting the accurate result is seemingly trivial: you simply iterate over the data, and count the number of unique elements. In reality, however, the task is more troublesome, mainly due to three constraints: process time-complexity, process space-complexity and distributed processing. Surprising, isn’t it? Many real-time algorithms require the execution of a great deal of queries every second, and are thus tightly time-bound. In these cases, even dealing…
