  • 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 : mycfg.net – 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.

  • ditaa – ditaa is a small command-line utility written in Java, that can convert diagrams drawn using ascii art ('drawings' that contain characters that resemble lines like | / – ), into proper bitmap graphics. This is best illustrated by the following example — which also illustrates the benefits of using ditaa in comparison to other methods :)
  • RegExr: Learn, Build, & Test RegEx – RegExr is an online tool to learn, build, & test Regular Expressions (RegEx / RegExp). * Results update in real-time as you type. * Roll over a match or expression for details. * Save & share expressions with others. * Explore the Library for help & examples. * Undo & Redo with Cmd-Z / Y. * Search for & rate Community patterns.
  • BASH with Debugger and Improved Debug Support and Error Handling – The Bash Debugger Project is a source-code debugger for bash that follows the gdb command syntax. The version 4.0 series is a complete rewrite of the previous series along the lines of my other POSIX shell debuggers and other debuggers mentioned below.
  • Opencall – Open Source Call Tracking Software – Call tracking is a method of monitoring inbound phone calls. It allows you to record conversations, track key statistics such as caller id, call duration, call source and streamline your sales, customer service and marketing. Opencall is the world’s first (and only) open source call tracking software. The software is available under the GPL v3 license, is written in PHP and utilises MySQL as the database platform. The original Opencall source code was written and developed by CallTracking Hong Kong to service clients in Hong Kong and other Asian countries. After 8 months of internal development the founder of CallTracking, Scott Bowler, decided to release their proprietary code to the public and change his business model to servicing companies who would make use of the open source call tracking platform. The major driver behind this choice was to open up the product to a global user base and encourage more rapid development of the platform.

  • tune apache peformance using mpm prefork module – There could be many reasons why your website performance is poor, one of them can possibly be that Apache is not coping with the load. Below you’ll find ready to consume configuration to make Apache performance better using the Apache MPM prefork module.
  • check-httpd-limits – Check Apache Httpd MPM Config Limits – Google Project Hosting – check_httpd_limits.pl compares the size of running Apache httpd processes, the configured prefork / worker / event MPM limits, and the server's available memory. The script exits with a warning (or error message) if the configured limits exceed the server's available memory. The script does not use any 3rd-party perl modules, unless the –save/days/max command-line options are used, in which case you will need to have the DBD::SQLite module installed. It should work on any UNIX server that provides /proc/meminfo, /proc/*/exe, /proc/*/stat, and /proc/*/statm files. You will probably have to run the script as root for it to read the /proc/*/exe symbolic links.
  • Apache 2.2: Multiple authentication providers « Electricmonk.nl weblog – Since Apache 2.2 multiple authentication providers are now supported. This is nice, since now you can have an LDAP authentication provider with an htpasswd fallback authentication mechanism.
  • lozzd/Nagdash – What is Nagdash? Nagdash is the long awaited replacement of Naglite2. Written in PHP, it uses the Nagios-api, PHP and a sprinkling of jQuery and Bootstrap to provide a full screen, clean Nagios experience which is suitable either for a Dashboard/NOC screen, or simply a simple view to replace the Nagios UI.
  • Naemon Monitoring Suite – Naemon is the new monitoring suite that aims to be faster and more stable, while giving you a clearer view of the state of your network.

  • Centos yum 404 repository errors | Natural Order Development – [...] Basically yum ran through every single mirror and got nothing but 404 errors. I thought something might have gotten broken with yum or maybe the entire Internet changed overnight to a new repository layout (not likely but it has happened before). Well a simple Google for yum 404 led to some message threads that basically said yum's caches were out of data [...]
  • Avoiding reboot: Resetting USB on a Linux machine – Every now and then, some USB device misbehaves badly enough to knock out the entire interface, to the extent that the system doesn’t detect any new USB devices. Or work so well with the existing ones, for that matter. The solution for me until now was to reboot the computer. But hey, I don’t like rebooting Linux!
