LXer: Supreme Court Will Hear A Case That Could Finally Shut Down East Texas As The Patent Troll Mecca

Tuesday 20th of December 2016 03:30:19 PM
We've been writing about how patent trolls have been flocking to East Texas for ten years now, and little has changed. In fact, as we noted last year, there's one judge in East Texas, Judge Rodney Gilstrap, who famously handled 20% of all patent cases filed in the country in 2014. One judge. And that's not all the patent cases that come into that court. The towns of Marshall, Texas, and Tyler, Texas, have built a giant industry out of being super friendly to patent trolls. And it's ridiculous. But there's a case that could put an end to it and the Supreme Court has thankfully agreed to hear it. Remote Logging With Syslog, Part 4: Log Rotation

Reddit: Huge and inconsistent memory reports (Fedora 25)

Tuesday 20th of December 2016 02:59:41 PM


I am having strange memory issues and inconsistent reports.

Used memory out of my 16 GB of RAM:

free -m : 6,5 GB. Htop : 7,8 GB Glances : 7,2 GB Gnome monitor : 5,1 GB

How to explain such gaps?

And even the lowest estimation is huge. I have one browser with 10 tabs, files and 2 terminals opened.

The worst is that there is no process really eating that much memory, so I don't know where it goes. When checking the top user space processes, they take at most 2 GB.

And kernel :

% grep Slab /proc/meminfo Slab: 939152 kB

Has something changed in kernel memory management ?

How to have a view of what is really happening ?

For the same kind of session in Fedora 24, I used to be more around 3 GB of used memory.

CentOS vs Ubuntu: Which one is better for a server

Finally decided to get a VPS but can’t decide which Linux distro to use? We’ve all been there. The choice may even be overwhelming, even for Linux distros, considering all the different flavors and distros that are out there. Though, the two most widely used and most popular server distros are CentOS and Ubuntu. This is the main dilemma among admins, both beginners and professionals. Having experience with both (and more) distros, we decided to do a comparison of CentOS and Ubuntu when used for a server. Read more
