TuxMachines: GNU/Linux on Servers: Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat

Friday 3rd of March 2017 11:33:14 PM
  • Solving HPC Conflicts with Containers

    Countless stories, comics, and television shows have driven home two very unpleasant stereotypes: the angry, unhelpful system administrator who can’t wait to say “no!” to a user request, and the clueless, clumsy user always a keystroke away from taking down the entire infrastructure. There is a kernel of truth to them. While both resource providers and resource users may want the same end result — the successful completion of computational tasks — they have conflicting priorities when it comes to achieving it.

  • Kubernetes and the Microservices Hierarchy of Needs

    Devised by psychologist Albert Maslow, the Hierarchy of Needs is a psychological theory to explain human motivation, comprising of multitier model of human needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid. Maslow uses terms such as physiological, safety, belongingness and love, esteem, self-actualization, and self-transcendence to describe the stages that human motivation generally moves through. As human beings, first we need our basic needs satisfied, then the psychological ones, and only then we can think of self esteem and achieving our full potential:

LXer: PlayStation 1 and 2 on Linux

Friday 3rd of March 2017 11:24:42 PM
There are basically three main gaming consoles on the market. These are the Playstation, Xbox and the Wii. Each of these have different varieties or versions. The PlayStation has a version 1, 2, 3, and 4. In a previous article about RecalboxOS I covered an Operating System (OS) which included a Playstation 1 emulator (the OS is for the Raspberry Pi). In this article I want to cover the emulators for the Playstation 1 and 2 for a standard Linux system.

Reddit: Is it me or does KDE feel slower than any other DE?

Friday 3rd of March 2017 11:02:35 PM

Have tried it since KDE3 days but I just can't use it for long since the feel just puts me off, although I can't put my finger on why exactly. Am I alone here? Can anyone explain to me why does it feel that way? Is it "just" slower?

LXer: Failing to secure DNS is 'savage ignorance': Geoff Huston

Friday 3rd of March 2017 10:04:39 PM
Not only has the DNS become the standard but lazy way to serve out domain-related information for other purposes and protocols, DNSSEC is now relatively easy to implement.

  • Cloud Native Computing Foundation Adds Google gRPC Project

    The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) which itself is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, is expanding its roster of supported projects today with the addition of the gRPC project.

    The gRPC project is an open source, high performance remote procedure call (RPC) framework originally developed by Google. The gRPC project has already been used outside of Google, with CoreOS and Netflix among the technology's adopters.

  • How The Ryzen 7 1800X Compares To The Performance Of Systems By Phoronix Readers

    Yesterday on top of the main Ryzen 7 1800X Linux benchmarks and the follow-up Linux gaming benchmarks, I also posted some extra Ryzen benchmark results and encouraged Phoronix readers to compare their own system's performance to our data using our open-source, automated benchmarking framework.

  • The Impact Of GCC Zen Compiler Tuning On AMD Ryzen Performance

    The latest in our AMD Ryzen Linux benchmarking is looking at the impact of compiled binaries when making use of Zen "znver1" compiler optimizations with the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) compared to other optimization levels like Bulldozer and K8-SSE3.

    With the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X running on Ubuntu 17.04 development with Linux 4.10 and GCC 6.3, I carried out some compiler benchmarks when trying different tuning levels for the Ryzen processor. It was way back in March of 2015 when AMD began on Zen support in GCC with the introduction of the "znver1" CPU type for signifying the first version of Zen.

  • 10 Best Java IDEs For Linux

    Java, the famous programming language that is useful to us at almost every time in our daily work. Directly or indirectly we work on Java software almost everyday. My fellow developers, coders, programmers also use to develop Java software that is why I decided that it would be worth to write an article on it. Many of you who are reading this may be new at Java IDE( Integrated Development Environment) who want to develop some kind of software, want to code or modify some kind of string and may be wondering that which IDE to use or which is the best. So here I list the 10 best Java IDE for Linux. This list is based on several opinions, research, comments, update, and support, stability as I wanted to list the best. Let’s start now!

  • LLVM 4.0 Release Candidate 3

    LLVM 4.0 remains running behind schedule but the third release candidate is now available for testing with hopes of shipping this updated compiler stack in the next week or so.

TuxMachines: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Linux Benchmarks: Great Multi-Core Performance For $329

Friday 3rd of March 2017 09:25:18 PM

Yesterday we posted launch-day Ryzen 7 1800X Linux benchmarks that were particularly appealing for multi-core / heavily-threaded workloads like code compilation. Given all the code compilation done by Linux users in particular, if you were intrigued by the Ryzen 7 1800X performance but find the $499 USD price-tag to be too higher, today I have my initial benchmark figures on the Ryzen 7 1700. The Ryzen 7 1700 is still eight cores and sixteen threads but will only set you back $329 USD as the current low-end Ryzen processor for what's currently available.

  • Device Tailored Compositors with Qt Wayland at CLAAS E-Systems
    Have you heard about software in cars that run on embedded devices? Do you think that creating such software might be challenging? Well, welcome to a complete new world of complexity, welcome to the world of agriculture machines! For many years, automatic steering (on fields), terminals to control the complex mechanical operations of a self-driving 16 ton combine harvester on a soft ground, and self-optimization systems to optimize any tiny bit of your harvester, are key demands from customers. I, myself, am working at CLAAS E-Systems, the electronics and software department within the CLAAS group. Our group is well known for being among the leading manufacturers for combine harvesters, tractors and forage harvesters.
  • Qt Wayland Is Next Appearing On Tractors & Farm Equipment
    With Qt 5.8's Qt Wayland Compositor Framework taking shape, more developers are beginning to tailor a Qt Wayland compositor to their use-cases. One of those is a company specializing in farm equipment like combine harvesters, tractors, and harvesters. As a guest post on the official Qt blog, developer Andreas Cord-Landwehr of CLAAS E-Systems talked up Qt Wayland for their purposes in the highly-regulated agriculture industry.
