New powerful server!

We just migrated to a new, more powerful dedicated server, hosted by hetzner.de. Some of the technical details are:
- AMD Athlon 64 3700 with 1 GB DDR400 RAM and 2GB of swap
- minimal bandwidth is 10 MBit/s
- chosen distro is: Ubuntu 6.06 minimal for amd64 architecture

Local testing with ab -n 1000 -c 5 http://polishlinux.org/ gave the following results:

Concurrency Level: 5
Time taken for tests: 4.336209 seconds
Complete requests: 1000
Failed requests: 0
Write errors: 0
Total transferred: 25198098 bytes
HTML transferred: 25015734 bytes
Requests per second: 230.62 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request: 21.681 [ms] (mean)
Time per request: 4.336 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent requests)
Transfer rate: 5674.77 [Kbytes/sec] received

So this basically means it's pretty powerful, compared to the demand.

Please go through the pages of PolishLinux.org and let me know if you see any performance improvement (or loss?). Perhaps some Apache settings may need to be fine-tuned, yet.

I just added the article

I just added the article about Mandriva and 3D desktop to digg: http://digg.com/linux_unix/Mandriva_2007_Free_with_3D_Desktop_Tutorial_and_Video
It probably won't make it to the frontpage since it has no 'ubuntu' or 'vista' word in it, but we can still try.

Well, of course, it's all just to test the new server, right? Smiling

Well... we didn't do very well with that one about Mandriva, but there is another one -- One Laptop Per Child: Between B1 and B2, Progress Report -- maybe this one will be more lucky?
We certainly need to test the new server, don't we? Sticking out tongue

The future of packaging in Linux

We're not gonna give up that easy, oh no! Here's another one: http://digg.com/linux_unix/The_future_of_packaging_software_in_Linux
This one has some better chance since it's got 12 giggs in some 3 hours already. And the article itself is interesting as well Sticking out tongue

Hehe, Dugg. Nice article.

Hehe, Dugg. Nice article. I'm excited about the whole CNR idea in a technical sense, but there are some non-technical issues that I don't like about it. Libervis will have an article on that soon.

Thanks

Heh, I guess it got burried just before getting published. That suscks. 52 diggs and not published on the main site. I'm wondering if one can check the reasons why people bury articles -- I cannot see this option anywhere on digg...

Could ask on #digg on

Could ask on #digg on irc.freenode.net [tho they aint an official channel of Digg.com which means it really should be ##digg.]

Darn, that happened to me

Darn, that happened to me for Libervis once, but that may have been because it crashed our server. Why would they bury your article I've no idea. One guess is that it got enough diggs incrementally to get on the homepage and then an overwhealming number of people reading the homepage found it unworthy of it or something, and got it buried. But yeah that sucks. Sad

On the other hand, did you actually see it on the homepage? Maybe 52 diggs isn't enough to get to homepage anymore (due to rising number of submissions), though unlikely I guess.

michuk> hi there, I have a simple question. wondering what happened with the article: http://digg.com/linux_unix/The_future_of_packaging_software_in_Linux
52 diggs and it disappeared. probably it has been buried, but can I check it somehow?
yeah, it never gets fully removed
can I check the reasons it got buried somehow?
cause I can't think of any, actually -- it's not controversial or anything, just covers the latest activities in the area of packaging for Linux, no idea why anyone would bury it
not really
yeah, I have no idea
but you can't check as far as I know
OK I see, tx Smiling

So, it seems it can't be checked. Oh well... maybe next time we make it then Smiling

I like Slashdot better -- it has much more professional news and informs about important stuff only. I read http://digg.com/linux_unix as well since it has many more news that /. sometimes misses.

Being slashdotted brings more visitirs than being dugg since the news on /. stays for a bit longer on front page. But there are mostly "geeky" visitors, while Digg brings more newbies who are the target for PolishLinux.org. So, the conclusion is that it's best to be both /.-tted and dugg Smiling

That sure is so. Nice analysis. Smiling

I'll try slashdot for our new site that's coming, its server should bear slashdot.

Not always; most of the hardware stuff, unless it's from a successful big company (AMD, Intel, nVidia...), is snake oil.
