  • Alfresco: some useful database queries – Blog dbi services – In my previous post, I talked about the Lifecycle of Alfresco Nodes. You may have noticed that I tried to insert in my explanations some elements that are specific to databases (tables, fields, aso…). These elements are quite essential to prepare a post like this one: more database oriented. I already explained what exactly are the consequences on the database side when a node is removed and I will try in this post to share some useful queries regarding these points but not only! For this post, I used my local Alfresco Community 4.2.c installation with a PostgreSQL database. For your information, it just take 30 minutes to get this test environment ready with the Alfresco’s installer (Windows, Mac or Unix). Of course, use the Database only for your daily administration work is certainly not the best idea but in some cases, it can really be faster and easier to just run some SQL commands at the DB level…

  • Shrinkpdf – A simple wrapper around Ghostscript to shrink PDFs (as in reduce filesize) under Linux. Inspired by some code I found in an OpenOffice Python script (I think). The script feeds a PDF through Ghostscript, which performs lossy recompression by such methods as downsampling the images to 72dpi. The result should be (but not always is) a much smaller file

  • Hardening Framework – […] Server hardening is a well-known topic with many guides out in the wild. Why this project? At Deutsche Telekom we need to manage thousands of servers for customers and ourselves. All servers need to be configured properly and maintained, which is difficult and time-consuming to get right. To answer these needs for security, compliance, and maintainability, we decided to launch this project as a common ground for requirements and their fulfillment.[…]

  • AWS Performance Tuning – This guide introduces best practices for tuning Riak cluster performance in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) environment.
  • Guide to Windows Batch Scripting – /* steve jansen */ – This series will share some of the tips and tricks I’ve picked up through the years of working with Windows professionally. I’ll be the first to admit the Unix shells of the world are far superior to the Windows command prompt (or even Windows PowerShell). Windows is a fact of life for most professionals writing code for coporate customers; this series aims to make life with Windows a little easier.

  • /bin/bash based SSL/TLS tester: testssl.sh – testssl.sh is a free command line tool which checks a server's service on any port for the support of TLS/SSL ciphers, protocols as well as recent cryptographic flaws and more. [ via quasi.dot: https://delicious.com/farmando ]
  • Policy NAT for L2L VPN • LearnIOS.com – I kind of missed the wood for the trees here. The static policy NAT is failing because you are trying to map a network 192.168.0.0 to a single IP address 172.20.n.1. However it's just occured, why are you doing policy NAT for the Internet. I tested in lab and if you do this
  • Encrypted Data Bags on Cloud on AWS – Many customers have asked us how they should handle shared secrets, passwords and other sensitive data in Chef and now we have a good solution. With the release of our stable-v4 stack, we introduced Chef 10 to the platform, and with it came data bags. Now with the 3.0 release of the engineyard gem, we can officially support data bags and encrypted data bags. You may be wondering what data bags are, how data bags work or how to implement data bags. This blog post will walk you through the entire process.
  • How to set disk alignment in Linux | Dirty Cache – As you might know, if disk partitions containing Oracle datafiles are not aligned with the underlying storage system, then some I/O’s can suffer from some overhead as they are effectively translated in two I/O’s. If you want more info, google for “EMC disk alignment” and you’ll find plenty of information, explaining the issue.
  • Add Private Route 53 DNS to your AWS VPC | CloudTrek – A really cool feature of Amazon’s Route 53 DNS Management Service is the private hosted DNS zone.  Basically, you get the ability to manage the DNS in your private VPC without setting up your own DNS infrastructure (yuck!) [ Just a friendly reminder Note 1: the resolution is working only inside the VPC. Note 2: if you don't have the AmazonProvidedDNS in your DHCP-OPTION you won't resolve the zone. Note 3: if you are using linux, you can use as DNS 169.254.169.253 it won't work on windows 2008 Ref: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonVPC/latest/UserGuide/VPC_DHCP_Options.html http://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/hosted-zones-private.html http://aws.amazon.com/route53/faqs/ ]
