Flexnet License Monitoring With rrdtool

Flexnet License Monitoring With rrdtool

Some of you may know the commercial Flexnet Licencing Application (©Macrovision). It's a client-server based solution for managing the usage of socalled Flexnet-enabled applications. You can hold licenses of more than one product on one license-server. As you typically have to buy licenses and licenses can be expensive it would be nice to have a monitoring solution, to see the utilization of the precious licenses, wether they are underutilized (so money is wasted) or are always fully utilized (so that you can suspect that sometimes people can not do their work, or only delayed) which is also a waste of resources. As far as I know there are commercial applications for performing such reports, but again you have to spent money. Why not build a simple system yourself, which shows the actual and past usage in an "MRTG style"?

Sphinx As MySQL Storage Engine (SphinxSE)

Sphinx As MySQL Storage Engine (SphinxSE)

SphinX is a great full-text search engine for MySQL. Installing the Sphinx daemon was straightforward as you can compile it from the source or use a .DEB/.RPM package but SphinxSE was a little bit tricky since it needed to be installed as a plugin on a running MySQL server. So if you use Debian or Centos and install your MySQL from a .deb or .rpm package this is how you do it.

Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On CentOS 5.4

Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On CentOS 5.4

This tutorial shows how to do data striping (segmentation of logically sequential data, such as a single file, so that segments can be assigned to multiple physical devices in a round-robin fashion and thus written concurrently) across four single storage servers (running CentOS 5.4) with GlusterFS. The client system (CentOS 5.4 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On CentOS 5.4

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS On CentOS 5.4

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running CentOS 5.4) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS.
