Presenting 10-fold increases in speed of new IMAP gateway and the doubling of Enterprise MySQL performance

At FOSDEM 2011 (5-6 February, Brussels), Zarafa, the leading European provider of open source groupware and collaboration will present its new Zarafa Collaboration Platform (ZCP) 7.0.0 beta2 with a new, faster IMAP gateway and share how Enterprise MySQL performance can be doubled.

Joint Zarafa Community Efforts Results in New IMAP gateway
Community contributions and valuable feedback has enabled Zarafa to launch a new ZCP IMAP gateway that also helps ZCP to benefit from 10-fold increases in speed and new possible security enhancements. Better compatibility for users with generic IMAP clients, like Mac Mail and Thunderbird, has been realized due to a new configuration option to store more message information.

Guy van Sanden, open source consultant at the Belgian system integrator Open future says: “Besides Zarafa’s recent decision to make the bug tracking system public, it thrills me that, from now on, all PGP/mime emails and s/mime encrypted mails will be supported and all message headers can be retrieved. The test results are promising”.

Doubling MySQL Performance Well Received by Open Source Opinion Leaders
On Saturday, 5th of February at 2pm in the MySQL Developer Room (H.2213), Steve Hardy, CTO at Zarafa, will present the results of research3 into the I/O performance of MySQL in typical enterprise setups. This new development can improve total disk throughput by more than 100% in certain cases.

Mark Callaghan of Facebook says: ”This is very interesting. My workload has too much concurrency already so I am most interested in the change to make records_in_range do less IO”.

The interaction with leading technical IO architects and the acceptance of this talk at the FOSDEM MySQL track is in line with Zarafa´s determination to display its commitment to state of the art thought leadership in groupware I/O R&D.

3 Research into the I/O performance of MySQL in typical enterprise setups
Tests have shown that InnoDB is not using traditional spindle-based I/O subsystems to their maximum potential while doing OLTP workloads with I/O-bound queries. Pages are requested sequentially from the disk system instead of asynchronously, even when using MySQL 5.5's native Aynchronous I/O support. The presentation shows the advantages of implementing a prefetch mechanism which can result in large gains in I/O performance. For more information about the InnoDB prefetch improvement see this mailinglist post: http://lists.mysql.com/internals/38126.

GNU/Linux Experiences With AMD's Latest

  • AMD's Raven Ridge Botchy Linux Support Appears Worse With Some Motherboards/BIOS
    With my launch testing of the Raven Ridge desktop APUs with the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G there were some stability issues to report and some hangs within games and mode-setting issues. It appears those issues are exacerbated with some motherboards: the past few days with two different AMD B350 motherboards have been a real pain getting the current AMDGPU driver stack working -- and even Linux 4.17 AMDGPU WIP code -- on either of these Raven Ridge APUs.
  • XDA’s First Full PC Build: An All-AMD Linux Desktop Featuring Ryzen and Polaris
    With GPU prices increasing exponentially over the past few months, it’s been hard to price out a PC. This particular build took us nearly a year to assemble; getting all the parts together was a challenge. (TK, our video producer, delivered the last piece of the puzzle after the Consumer Electronics Show in January.) Our goal was to show what a decent budget can get you in an all-AMD build, and what kind of performance you can expect from it. Thanks to AMD Ryzen and Polaris, we were able to do just that.
  • Ryzen 3 2200G Video Memory Size Testing On Linux
    One of the discussion items in the forums this week was about the video memory allowance for the Vega graphics on Raven Ridge APUs as well as efficiences or inefficiencies around the TTM memory manager as used by the AMDGPU kernel driver. Here are some vRAM size tests with the Ryzen 3 2200G.

How To Make Good Use Of 'grep' Command

​Linux and UNIX systems come with a shell command known as ‘grep’. This simply looks for a specified text, or pattern, in a file or an entire directory. The most common usage is for quickly searching a file for occurrences of a pattern, which can be in plain text, or in the form of a regular expression. Here, the patterns used will be simple text rather than regular expressions. Read
