Nginx+PHP(FPM)+MySQL+Memcache+eAccelerator on Debian6 | Qi Yang – I recently rebuild my linux image on Linode, so I have to reinstall the LEMP stack again from ground. Last time was probably more than a year ago, with the help of many tutorials from google. So this time I decide to write what I did step by step for my reference in the future [...]
Magento caching, APC, eAccelerator Memcached, files, sqlite, Vanish, what’s the … happen? | Alex Paradise – Magento is slow! It’s how start most of the article about Magento cache optimization. Yes, Magento is slow and this because of the way the code is written, extreme object oriented. Stackoverflow say “It is written in an Enterprise Java idiom” and there are right. Anyway, we can’t change anything about it and in one side that let us lot of flexibility.
So, Magento IS SLOW! And what’s can we do? There is many thing to do, many, many. But the most important one is to work around the cache. I am searching for a cache solution and found so much different stuff like APC, eAccelerator, memcached, tmpfs, varnich, lighthttpd, nginx and so on… I will try to explain the different possibilities if found while my research and finished by the one I will implement[...]

calligrafia.org » il sito dell’Associazione Calligrafica Italiana – [...] Nel settembre 1991 a Milano, un gruppo di calligrafi fonda l'Associazione calligrafica Italiana. Da allora il programma dell'Associazione è cresciuto con successo anche grazie ai contatti mantenuti con altre associazioni calligrafiche all'estero (in Europa e in America) garantendo così scambi di informazioni e soprattutto la possibilità di avvalersi della collaborazione di insegnanti di riconosciuta competenza. In questi anni l'ACI ha sicuramente ottenuto successi e risultati. Oramai la calligrafia è praticata anche in Italia, sono state organizzate mostre e avviati contatti con biblioteche e scuole[...]
Rajiv’s blog – I was in charge of scaling Dropbox for a while, from roughly 4,000 to 40,000,000 users. For most of that time we had one to three people working on the backend. Here are some suggestions on scaling, particularly in a resource-constrained, fast-growing environment that can’t always afford to do things “the right way” (i.e., any real-world engineering project ;-). If people find this useful, I’ll try to come up with more tips and write a part 2.

Disaster: LVM Performance in Snapshot Mode – MySQL Performance Blog – In many cases I speculate how things should work based on what they do and in number of cases this lead me forming too good impression about technology and when running in completely unanticipated bug or performance bottleneck. This is exactly the case with LVM
Number of customers have reported the LVM gives very high penalty when snapshots are enabled (leave along if you try to run backup at this time) and so I decided to look into it.
Netexpertise » Mysql Ultra-Fast Backup with LVM – It is generally good practice to respect the two following points when backing up databases. The backup has to be:
Consistency is easily achieved putting a read lock on all tables beforehands. However, this isn’t always applied, and WILL definately lead to a database integrity problem at some stage.
Once a lock has been set on the database, the backup has to be as quick as possible, all write instructions being held in the queue.

Five Tips for a Better sendmail Configuration – O’Reilly Media – Unix vendors bundle sendmail with the operating system and ship it out preconfigured. It is very easy to install the OS and use the sendmail configuration delivered with the system. Don't be fooled by this apparent simplicity. In the long run, it is better to take charge of your fate. Creating a custom sendmail configuration using current software and features selected for your environment will give you better performance, reliability, security, and maintainability. Here are some tips to get you started on building a better sendmail configuration.
mylvmbackup – mylvmbackup is a tool for quickly creating backups of a MySQL server's data files. To perform a backup, mylvmbackup obtains a read lock on all tables and flushes all server caches to disk, creates a snapshot of the volume containing the MySQL data directory, and unlocks the tables again. The snapshot process takes only a small amount of time. When it is done, the server can continue normal operations, while the actual file backup proceeds.
