jordansissel/fpm – Effing package management! Build packages for multiple platforms (deb, rpm, etc) with great ease and sanity.
Linux incrond inotify: Monitor Directories For Changes And Take Action – I want to copy (rsync to remote server) a directory tree whenever file uploaded or deleted in /var/www/html/upload/ directory under Linux operating systems for backup purpose and/or load balancing purpose without getting into complex file sharing setup such as NFS or GFS iscsi storage. How do I monitor /var/www/html/upload/ and its subdirectory for new files and executes rsync command to make copy back to www2.example.com:/var/www/html/upload/? inotify is an inode-based filesystem notification technology. It provides possibility to simply monitor various events on files in filesystems. It is a very much powerful replacement of (obsolete) dnotify. inotify brings a comfortable way how to manage files used in your applications. The incrond (inotify cron daemon) is a daemon which monitors filesystem events (such as add a new file, delete a file and so on) and executes commands or shell scripts. It’s use is generally similar to cron.
Use incron to Trigger Action when File Changes – There are some situations, when you need to start an action or run a command when a given file has changed in your file system. The real life example I have is as follows: I have a git repository, from where I manage this blog, I have a remote branch of it on the same server, from where Nginx serves this pages. I also have another remote branch in my Macbook Pro (With the correspondent Time Machine backup). But, I’m a paranoid guy, so I just want more backups. I decided I wanted to backup all my blog files to my Dropbox account.

FhGFS Wiki: Tips and Recommendations for Storage Server Tuning – Here are some tips and recommendations on how to improve the performance of your storage servers. As usual, the optimal settings depend on your particular hardware and usage scenarios, so you should use these settings only as a starting point for your tuning efforts.
Linux NAS optimizations ← BAFM – [...] Well, I recently had to flatten my archive NAS (well only the OS part … *wheeeh*). Since I didn’t have the chance to backup the old settings I had to do everything from scratch … And this time I decided, I wasn’t doing a script but rather the proper way. I spent a while reading through the Internetz about the various settings until I stumbled upon a Frauenhofer Wiki entry. From there I ended up writing those udev-rules and the sysctl configs…[...]

ZPanel | The free web hosting panel – ZPanel is an easy to use, enterprise class web hosting control panel with support for unlimited resellers. From the largest business to SOHO or development environments, ZPanel can support your needs.
Bucky — Performance Measurement of Your App’s Actual Users – Bucky is a client and server for sending performance data from the client into statsd+graphite, OpenTSDB, or any other stats aggregator of your choice. It can automatically measure how long your pages take to load, how long AJAX requests take and how long various functions take to run. Most importantly, it's taking the measurements on actual page loads, so the data has the potential to be much more valuable than in vitro measurements. If you already use statsd or OpenTSDB, you can get started in just a few minutes. If you're not collecting stats, you should start! What gets measured gets managed.
Linux on 4 KB sector disks: Practical advice – Advanced Format disks use 4,096-byte sectors rather than the more common 512-byte sectors. This change is masked by firmware that breaks the 4,096-byte physical sectors into 512-byte logical sectors for the benefit of the operating system, but the use of larger physical sectors has implications for disk layout and system performance. This article examines these implications, including benchmark tests illustrating the likely real-world effects on some common Linux file systems. As Advanced Format disks have become the norm, understanding how to cope with these disks is a vital skill for anyone who wants to avoid serious performance penalties associated with suboptimal configuration.
SiteSucker for OS X – SiteSucker is a Macintosh application that automatically downloads Web sites from the Internet. It does this by asynchronously copying the site's Web pages, images, backgrounds, movies, and other files to your local hard drive, duplicating the site's directory structure. Just enter a URL (Uniform Resource Locator), press return, and SiteSucker can download an entire Web site. [ via http://onethingwell.org/post/79174700058/sitesucker ]

Observium – Observium is an autodiscovering SNMP based network monitoring platform written in PHP which includes support for a wide range of network hardware and operating systems including Cisco, Windows, Linux, HP, Dell, FreeBSD, Juniper, Brocade, Netscaler, NetApp and many more. Observium has grown out of a lack of network monitoring platforms which are both simple to manage and pleasant to use. It is intended to provide a navigable interface to the health and performance of your network. Its design goals include collecting as much historical data about devices as possible, using as much auto-discovery as possible with little or no manual intervention, and having a very intuitive interface. Observium is not intended to replace an up/down alerting system like Icinga or Nagios, but rather to complement it with an easy to manage, intuitive representation of historical and current performance statistics, configuration visualisation and syslog capture.
nikratio / S3QL — Bitbucket – S3QL is a file system that stores all its data online using storage services like Google Storage, Amazon S3, or OpenStack. S3QL effectively provides a hard disk of dynamic, infinite capacity that can be accessed from any computer with internet access running Linux, FreeBSD or OS-X. S3QL is a standard conforming, full featured UNIX file system that is conceptually indistinguishable from any local file system. Furthermore, S3QL has additional features like compression, encryption, data de-duplication, immutable trees and snapshotting which make it especially suitable for online backup and archival. S3QL is designed to favor simplicity and elegance over performance and feature-creep. Care has been taken to make the source code as readable and serviceable as possible. Solid error detection and error handling have been included from the very first line, and S3QL comes with extensive automated test cases for all its components.
Secure encrypted backup using duplicity for Linux and Mac – I have been looking for a replacement alternative to Dropbox which I use on my Mac mainly for backups (I rarely use the sharing). The requirements were secure encrypted backup (where I control the keys) and “intelligence” so incremental backups could be performed i.e. not copying everything every time[...]
Duplicati – Duplicati is a free backup client that securely stores encrypted, incremental, compressed backups on cloud storage services and remote file servers. It works with Amazon S3, Windows Live SkyDrive, Google Drive (Google Docs), Rackspace Cloud Files or WebDAV, SSH, FTP (and many more). Duplicati has built-in AES-256 encryption and backups can be signed using GNU Privacy Guard. A built-in scheduler makes sure that backups are always up-to-date. Last but not least, Duplicati provides various options and tweaks like filters, deletion rules, transfer and bandwidth options to run backups for specific purposes. Duplicati is licensed under LGPL and available for Windows and Linux (.NET 2.0+ or Mono required). The Duplicati project was inspired by duplicity. Duplicati and duplicity are similar but not compatible. Duplicati is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Danish, Portugese, Italian, and Chinese.
