PNDA aggregates data from multiple sources on a network, be they-real time performance indicators or static sources like logs, then works with Apache Spark to do the usual Big Data thing of finding useful patterns.

Reddit: Trying to get Conky to work

Wednesday 17th of August 2016 06:52:31 AM

First of all, I'm not a power user. I'm a regular guy who uses Linux Mint because it runs out of the box and does it quite well.

I read about Conky (I used Rainmeter in Windows and I liked the experience) and have been trying to get themes to work, but every now I try to run a theme I end up with the text ${image} displayed instead of what the theme is supposed to do.

I think it has something to do witht he place I'm putting Conky in. I read it has to be in the home folder. Would that be /home/MarsNirgal, or simply / ?

If it's the first case, would I need to open it with privileges in order to paste the .conkyrc file in it?

Thanks a lot to anyone who helps.

Cloud platforms enable enterprise companies to begin their big data journey much faster than on-premises systems because of centralization of control and administration, massive geographic reach, and because of the elasticity of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) that allows you to create just the right amount of computing power on the fly, according to Ashish Thusoo, co-founder and CEO of Qubole and former head of Facebook’s big data initiatives, speaking at the Apache Big Data conference in May.
