Post date: June 24, 2005, 14:06 Category: System Views: 2654 Comments
Tutorial quote: We recently to shed some light on Linux, particularly for users unfamiliar with the system. The article received quite a response from around the world and so we will be doing some follow-up articles to teach all those interested, the ins and outs of Linux. In this article, we will be discussing what partitioning is, how to choose a filesystem, how to have Windows and Linux installed on your hard drive at the same time, and more.

Benchmarking Maildir Delivery on Linux Filesystems

Post date: April 12, 2005, 07:04 Category: Benchmarks Views: 3053 Comments
Tutorial quote: The goal of this set of benchmarks is to determine which of the leading Linux filesystems (ext2, ext3, ReiserFS, and XFS) offer the best performance when used for accepting maildir deliveries. The resulting system should be a good balance of delivery and retrieval performance under potentially high concurrent filesystem load.

Filesystems (ext3, reiser, xfs, jfs) comparison on Debian Etch

Post date: April 23, 2006, 08:04 Category: Benchmarks Views: 5847 Comments
Tutorial quote: There are a lot of Linux filesystems comparisons available but most of them are anecdotal, based on artificial tasks or completed under older kernels. This benchmark essay is based on 11 real-world tasks appropriate for a file server with older generation hardware (Pentium II/III, EIDE hard-drive).

Filesystem Encryption Tools for Linux

Post date: May 28, 2007, 00:05 Category: System Views: 3459 Comments
Tutorial quote: Crypto filesystems keep your data safe – even if someone steals your computer.Linux offers a number of encrypted filesystem options – each with a different approach to the encryption problem.Encrypted filesystems may be overkill
for family photos or your résumé, but they make sense for network-accessible servers that hold sensitive business
documents, databases that contain credit-card information, offline backups, and laptops.

Inkscape: Vector Graphics For Linux

Post date: April 13, 2005, 02:04 Category: Multimedia Views: 2886 Comments
Tutorial quote: In this story we'll do a quick primer on how you can get up to speed on Inkscape. Along the way, we'll explore situations where a vector based graphic would be better suited for a job than a raster based picture. In spite of not being an XML or web development expert I think SVG will be important in the future. Read on and you'll see why.

rsnapshot - Local/Remote Filesystem backups utility in openSUSE

Post date: October 6, 2008, 21:10 Category: System Views: 3873 Comments
Tutorial quote: rsnapshot is a filesystem backup utility based on rsync. Using rsnapshot, it is possible to take snapshots of your filesystems at different points in time. Using hard links, rsnapshot creates the illusion of multiple full backups, while only taking up the space of one full backup plus differences. When coupled with ssh, it is possible to take snapshots of remote filesystems as well.
