LXer: SCALE 13x: My Dance Card

Monday 16th of February 2015 03:54:54 PM
There are about 130 sessions at SCALE 13x and a great majority of them are of interest to the beginner and/or intermediate user. A rule of thumb in attending a session is that if you’ve never heard of the software and/or you’d never have a reason to use it, you’re probably not a sysadmin and don’t need to attend. That’s of little consolation to most, because of the packed schedule.

Reddit: What exactly does iotop log?

Monday 16th of February 2015 01:00:47 PM


I'm trying to quantify the amount of I/O in a server, but iotop tells me there's a big write rate and I can't find why.

  • Does iotop log only writing/reading files? Or does it log, for exemple, writing to sockets?

  • How can I know which files are written/read by a process?

Thanks for your help

TuxMachines: Meizu teases Ubuntu phone ahead of MWC event

Monday 16th of February 2015 12:52:04 PM

Ubuntu on mobile phones has been a long standing project for Canonical and quite an ambitious one. Much like Microsoft and its new One Windows ideology, Canonical hatched the scheme for a unified cross-device application ecosystem long ago, but progress has been rather slow.
Meizu has been a vital part of the new OS development with various demo builds and rumor of Ubuntu-powered Meizu handset popping up ever since the MX 3 was the company's flagship offer. Today the Chinese smartphone maker posted a rather interesting teaser on Facebook. The image hints at a new OS, which will join the ranks of Flyme and YunOS and probably be unveiled at this year's MWC.
