  • The Twelve-Factor App – In the modern era, software is commonly delivered as a service: called web apps, or software-as-a-service. The twelve-factor app is a methodology for building software-as-a-service apps that: Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimize time and cost for new developers joining the project; Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments; Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration; Minimize divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility; And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices. The twelve-factor methodology can be applied to apps written in any programming language, and which use any combination of backing services (database, queue, memory cache, etc).

  • 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.

  • Sensu | The open source monitoring framework. – [...] Sensu is often described as the “monitoring router”. Essentially, Sensu takes the results of “check” scripts run across many systems, and if certain conditions are met; passes their information to one or more “handlers”. Checks are used, for example, to determine if a service like Apache is up or down. Checks can also be used to collect data, such as MySQL query statistics or Rails application metrics. Handlers take actions, using result information, such as sending an email, messaging a chat room, or adding a data point to a graph. There are several types of handlers, but the most common and most powerful is “pipe”, a script that receives data via standard input. Check and handler scripts can be written in any language, and the community repository continues to grow! [...]
