Installing And Using OpenVZ On Debian Lenny (AMD64)

Installing And Using OpenVZ On Debian Lenny (AMD64)

In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a Debian Lenny server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernel patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license.

Getting High With Lenny

Getting High With Lenny

The aim here is to set up some high available services on Debian Lenny (at the time of writing still due to be released). Most of the documentation available for such a setup I found on the net are based on Xen but I prefer to use Vserver for the "virtualisation" because of its configurability, shared memory and cpu resources and basically the raw speed. DRBD8 and Heartbeat should take care of the availability magic in case a machine shuts down unexpectedly.

Watching Hard Drive Activity With iotop On Ubuntu 8.10 And Debian Lenny

Watching Hard Drive Activity With iotop On Ubuntu 8.10 And Debian Lenny

This article shows how you can watch your hard drive activity with iotop on Ubuntu 8.10 and Debian Lenny. iotop watches I/O usage information output by the Linux kernel and displays a table of current I/O usage by processes or threads on the system. iotop displays columns for the I/O bandwidth read and written by each process/thread during the sampling period. It also displays the percentage of time the thread/process spent while swapping in and while waiting on I/O. In addition the total I/O bandwidth read and written during the sampling period is displayed at the top of the interface.

Desktop Search In Ubuntu Intrepid (And Debian) In KDE 4.2

Desktop Search In Ubuntu Intrepid (And Debian) In KDE 4.2

Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 features an inbuilt desktop search. Unfortunately I never managed to get it to work right and I tried a lot of things. So I finally went on irc.freenode.org into the #strigi channel and asked for help. Lucky me Phreedom in there gave me a helping hand. Why Nepomuk doesn't work by default is still a mystery. I think this is related to Redland instead of Soprano. Unfortunately, as Phreedom told me, the Ubuntu and Debian maintainers don't supply Soprano with the current builds. Also his recommendation is to use KDE 4.2 (Kubuntu 8.10 comes with KDE 4.1).
