Aggregating network interfaces

Post date: February 12, 2006, 07:02 Category: Network Views: 3793 Comments
Tutorial quote: Using more than one hard drive to achieve better performance and fault tolerance is very common. Less well known is that it's also possible to aggregate more than one network interface into a single logical interface. In Linux, this is handled by the bonding driver. Benefits of doing this are much the same as the benefits of aggregating discs using RAID: if one device dies, your server carries on working and by using two devices in parallel, performance can be improved.

Splitting updatedb into daily and weekly

Post date: April 21, 2006, 12:04 Category: System Views: 3395 Comments
Tutorial quote: We all appreciate the locate command when we are such in a hurry we cannot afford a full and in-elegant find. What we like a little less, though, is the updatedb script consuming up all our disk bandwidth at each boot, summoned by anacron.

Of course, this is only the case if you are running a "desktop" machine: since you turn it on when you need to do some work, then you long for a way to shorten the period of reduced usability forced by updatedb.

Inversely, if you run a server that never goes down, and you successfully schedule your updatedb tasks late at night, then this article is not for you.
