Few days ago I have installed nginx on one of our adult projects as reverse proxy server and for static files management. Yesterday this server got 200Mbit/sec traffic and because all admins like to create miscellaneous graphs, I have decided to draw nginx stats on graphs to see server load not only in megabits and load averages. As the result, I have created perl script, which uses RRDs perl module to create and manage rrd-database and very beautiful graphs.
OpenSuSE released rc3 of their upcoming SuSE Linux 10.1 yesterday right on target as planned and reported on the Roadmap. I thought rc2 was just about gold worthy myself and was anxious to see the changelog for rc3. Well, they disappointed me on a few issues but all in all, they are probably getting closer to that final release.
Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and now Xubuntu. Mark Shuttleworth's work continues on with this new Xfce Ubuntu derivative. Xubuntu shares the same base system and installation system as the common Ubuntu distribution, but ships with the light-weight Xfce desktop environment. Today at Phoronix we have a screenshot tour of Xubuntu Dapper Drake Beta 2
When developing any project, you must determine a set of goals that should be accomplished to reach a release point. When dealing with an open source project that is constantly in development, this is even more important because you lack a well-defined set of requirements that you must achieve. Lacking these requirements makes it all too easy to keep developing and never reach a release point.
In the growing tradition of -women groups, Ubuntu-Women now joins the ranks with the annoucement of the launch of their official website this week. The Ubuntu-Women mailing list was started in February 2006, and a related Ubuntu-Women Forum and IRC channel (#ubuntu-women on irc.freenode.net) have been around since mid 2005.
Linux has no dearth in utilities which aid a user in getting a snapshot of the network traffic which course through ones machine especially when one is connected to the internet. One such software which aids the user in keeping an eye on the exchange of IP packets to and from ones machine is IPTraf. This is a curses based menu driven utility which intercepts packets on the network and gives out information about it.
THE FREE browser Firefox seems to be able to teach Microsoft a lesson or two when it comes to fixing bugs. But, it has slightly buggered up the release dates and numbers that were planned for Firebadger.
After Nintendo announced the official name of its next-generation game console, to be known henceforth as Wii, fan reaction was less "whee" and more "why?" Until the company's announcement Thursday, the console has been known by its code name, "Revolution".
The week-long anti-competition hearing involving Microsoft and the European Commission has finished - with neither side willing to predict the outcome.

This tutorial shows how you can mirror your web site from your main web server to a backup server that can take over if the main server fails. We use the tool rsync for this, and we make it run through a cron job that checks every x minutes if there is something to update on the mirror. Thus your backup server should usually be up to date if it has to take over.
I just witnessed a subtle, yet interesting, division in the Linux community this week. The catalyst for this division was none other than the announcement from the Desktop Linux Summit that Linspire is planning to offer, alongside their commercial offering of the same name, community-oriented versions of the Linspire distro to be known as Freespire.
Last year we had taken an in-depth look at ATI's PowerPlay technology upon the support within the Linux fglrx display drivers. Now that Fedora Core 5 has been out for some time, and there have been quite a few monthly releases since that point, we are now back today as we re-examine ATI's PowerPlay using once again the Mobility RADEON X300.
A clear majority of readers believe that a Linux desktop will one day be a viable alternative to Microsoft Windows, according to approximately two thirds of respondents to a lightning poll.
After seeing the specs for the OQO model 01+ tablet palmtop PC, I knew I had to put SUSE 10.0 Linux on it and do a review. OQO currently offers only a Windows XP version. To say the OQO/SUSE Linux combination is a "geek magnet" is to overstate the obvious.
Minutes ago the developers of TO-Crossfire released the password for their password-protected rar archive distributed via BitTorrent during the last days.

On recent motherboards the PCIe 1x slots seem to be all the rage. Some motherboard manufacturers eskew extra PCI slots in favor of their runty PCIe cousin. But what are these used for? And why would you want two PCIe 1x slots instead of a healthy 3 or 4 standard PCI slots?
The Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is a mechanism for virtualizing disks. It can create "virtual" disk partitions out of one or more physical hard drives, allowing you to grow, shrink, or move those partitions from drive to drive as your needs change. It also allows you to create larger partitions than you could achieve with a single drive.
Intec Automation is shipping a tiny ColdFire-powered CPU module claimed to be the smallest Linux SBC (single-board computer) with Internet connectivity, a reasonable amount of memory, and "massive control functionality." The WildFireMod measures 1.9 x 1.7 inches (49 x 44mm).
Whether Red Hat's $350 million purchase of JBoss proves a wise decision strategically or financially over the long term, it was one that Red Hat had to pull the trigger on if it hopes to compete in the higher-value business-software market.
