  • Dkron – Distributed, fault tolerant job scheduling system – Dkron is a system service that runs scheduled jobs at given intervals or times, just like the cron unix service but distributed in several machines in a cluster. If a machine fails (the leader), a follower will take over and keep running the scheduled jobs without human intervention. Dkron is Open Source and freely available.
  • apache tuneup – Important to understand, this apache servers only one static image we use for the BI team. It does recieve and log a huge cookie and sends a 43 byte 1×1.gif image. Atention: It may not work right for dynamic web servers, as I use the mod_cache.
  • Gogs – Go Git Service – a painless self-hosted Git service – A painless self-hosted Git service. The goal of this project is to make the easiest, fastest, and most painless way of setting up a self-hosted Git service. With Go, this can be done with an independent binary distribution across ALL platforms that Go supports, including Linux, Mac OS X, Windows and ARM.

  • Scaling PHP apps via PHP-FPM clustering | Jamie Alquiza – PHP-FPM is a way to move your busted PHP handling from one place to another. It's essentially a pool of processes ready for PHP interpretation through FastCGI. While Apache will service client connections and static content, PHP requests are pushed into PHP-FPM. PHP-FPM allows the creation of process pools, each pool having it's own spawning model (e.g. static number of processes, dynamic with min/max, etc.) and other configurations (what UID/GID to run as, listening socket, etc.). A typical setup would be to create a PHP-FPM pool per tenant in a shared hosting environment.
  • KERMIT – KermIT is an opensource IT management solution. KermIT integrates best of breed opensource components with a Web user interface and dashboard to provide a central management solution for IT systems and applications. It provides a consistent, secure framework and a scalable architecture. It manages Linux, Unix and Windows systems. 'Small picture' KermIT relies in the backend on Puppet and MCollective. The license of the developments is the GPL v.3 for the generic part of the source code.
  • Random Start Times For Cron Jobs With Puppet : – Periodic scripts which use a common resource can end up being configured to run at the same time for multiple hosts. The result is that tasks like puppet runs or backups can take longer since they are trying to run all at once instead of being staggered. One way to do this is to give each cron task unique times manually. Another way is to add a random sleep before the task runs. My preferred way is to use the fqdn_rand function in puppet. Here's how it works.
