  • Elisa, Red Hat to demonstrate network throughput boosting software at MWC

    Elisa said it will be demonstrating a cloud-ready mobile network automation system for telecommunication operators at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 26 February to 01 March. It will showcase Elisa SON (Self-Organising Networks) there with Red Hat. Elisa SON uses closed loop automation and tailored algorithms that can double user data throughput on an existing network.

    Elisa offers unlimited data plans to subscribers, so its networks carry a high volume of mobile data. For this reason, it has focused on optimising network performance and getting maximum value out of its existing equipment.

  • Red Hat–1-2-3 on App Modernization

    David Egts, chief technologist for Red Hat public sector has some words of wisdom for Federal managers seeking ways to move from legacy applications to more agile environments: modernization is not just about adopting new technologies and practices, it is about what happens to the old ones.

    Three application migration patterns are emerging as government agencies and commercial businesses attempt to modernize aging, mission-critical applications: Lift and Shift, Augment with New Layers, and Rewrite, Egts said. He noted that Red Hat’s PaaS Community of Practice leader, expounded on these approaches in a whitepaper, Making Old Applications New Again.

    So, which approach is best? “There is no single right answer,” Egts said. It depends on the application, the business, and contextual factors, as well as what stage the applications are in their life cycle. However, for the best results, agencies should partner “with system integrators or vendors that can cover all three migrations, and join you in this journey,” Egts advised.

    How do the three patterns work?

  • Signition LP Acquires Shares of 5,178 Red Hat Inc (RHT)
  • Contribute at the Fedora Test Day for kernel 4.15

    The kernel team is working on final integration for kernel 4.15. This version was just recently released, and will arrive soon in Fedora. This version has many security fixes included. As a result, the Fedora kernel and QA teams have organized a test day for Thursday, February 22. Refer to the wiki page for links to the test images you’ll need to participate.

  • CentOS Dojo and FOSDEM 2018

    FOSDEM is one of the largest open source conferences in the world, with over 8000 participants. As many developers gather not just from Europe but from all around the world, there are a number of pre- and post conferences timed to happen before and after FOSDEM. This year before FOSDEM, I also participated at the CentOS Dojo, a whole-day event about CentOS.

The Spectre/Meltdown Performance Impact On Linux 4.20, Decimating Benchmarks With New STIBP Overhead

As outlined yesterday, significant slowdowns with the Linux 4.20 kernel turned out to be due to the addition of the kernel-side bits for STIBP (Single Thread Indirect Branch Predictors) for cross-HyperThread Spectre Variant Two mitigation. This has incurred significant performance penalties with the STIBP support in its current state with Linux 4.20 Git and is enabled by default at least for Intel systems with up-to-date microcode. Here are some follow-up benchmarks looking at the performance hit with the Linux 4.20 development kernel as well as the overall Spectre and Meltdown mitigation impact on this latest version of the Linux kernel. Some users have said AMD also needs STIBP, but at least with Linux 4.20 Git and the AMD systems I have tested with their up-to-date BIOS/microcode, that hasn't appeared to be the case. Most of the AMD STIBP references date back to January when Spectre/Meltdown first came to light. We'll see in the week ahead if there is any comment from AMD but at this time seems to be affecting up-to-date Intel systems with the Linux 4.20 kernel. Read more
