SAP Performance on vSphere 4.1 with DB2 and SUSE 10

SAP Performance on vSphere 4.1 with DB2 and SUSE 10

VMware published a paper which shows that vSphere 4.1, out of the box, easily supports a demanding SAP ERP installation by allowing administrators to either scale up or scale out.

Scaling Up By Adding Processors

To test scale-up performance, a similarly-configured physical machine and virtual machine were used to see how many SAP users could be supported  with one, two, four, and eight processors.

Figure 1. Number of users supported while scaling up virtual and physical (native) CPUs

Tuyet-sap-blog-fig01
In the experiments, a virtual machine with 8 vCPUs was able to support approximately 1,200 users, achieving 93%-95% of the number of users as a similar native test.

Scaling Out By Adding Servers

vSphere 4.1 can be scaled out to support larger user workloads.  A series of tests with multiple virtual machines were run to compare the performance of different scale-out ...read more...

Volker Lanz (Torch): A Name Is A Name

System & Utilities

As a followup to my post on finding a name for the until then unnamed sports and activity tracking application I have been writing I’d like to thank all commenters on the blog entry for their valuable input, their ideas and suggestions and of course for their kind words. It sure has been uplifting to read so much enthusiastic posts in response to an application that has not even been released yet.

Now for the thrilling yet hard part: I had to pick one of the many, many good suggestions for an application name that all of you made. I had a few ideas and requirements what I would like the name to be like — and maybe those ideas are valid for more than just this one application:

  • The name should be easy to remember. Some imaginative and creative name that no one can remember for longer than five minutes is going to do more harm than good.
  • And old-skool name like “KAktivity” (i.e., lots of K’s everywhere) is not, at least in my opinion, ...read more...

Lukas Tvrdy (lukast): Week 31: Fixing custom and predefined brushes

System & Utilities

Custom brush was disabled feature for quite a long time in Krita and I resurrected the feature from the dust in week 30. Further testing uncovered a lot of bugs.

First bug occurred when you used color mask as grayscale mask. The mip-mapping levels were still grayscale when you returned from grayscale mode to color mode, so the brush looked grayscale even when you wanted to paint in color. Fixed.

When you paint in mode “Use color as mask” with some predefined brush, the colorful image is converted into gray scale image first. But for the mip-mapping it is converted to masks, where white means transparent and black means opaque. We had bug in computing grayscale-convert-to-mask. Fixed. Another use-case when we convert color image is when we create custom brushes. You can save colorful brush (with RGBA) and then paint with it as mask if you want with Use color as mask mode or you can select Use color as mask in the custom dialog and the brush will be saved as grayscale. In the later option your brush file ...read more...

Thomas Thym (ungethym): KDE Software on Windows

System & Utilities Why do I need KDE Software on Windows? Use Linux instead! That's much better anyway.
Yeah, that's right. But there are situations where that strategy does not work.

I am sitting in the office and are still fascinated by RKWard (as I blogged before). So I kindly asked our IT guys to give me an old notebook to install Linux onto it. And because they are great colleagues they gave me one. (Yes, I come to the point soon.)
So I started to download openSUSE 11.3. But the network connection was so poor that after an hour or more the download was aborted and I had to start from the begin. If I only had a nice torrent client. (Now I come to the point.) ktorrent!
(Yes, there are other programs as well but perhaps I was searching for a reason.)

That was my chance to give KDE on Windows a try.
After downloading the installer (http://windows.kde.org/download.php) I clicked through the wizard until I came to the packages. What packages do I ...read more...

Ariya Hidayat: bouncing ball with accelerometer on N900

System & Utilities

First of all, I apologize for my laziness in updating X2 with new code example. I have actually written quite a number of interesting examples, some of which have even been shown back in March, during my talk at Bossa Conference 10, though I did not find the time to clean up and polish them. Although I'd face new challenges in my upcoming adventure, I am quite confident I will reach the designated rate of new X2 example fortnightly.

Now let's focus on the newest example: a minor modification to the previous accelerometer code on Nokia N900 [1]. There has been confusion with my statement there: put this function is a separate thread. This is the alternative to a non-blocking D-Bus code. The main goal of course is not to be able to get faster acceleration values per second, it is only to prevent your code from being blocked by the synchronous D-Bus call.

Rather than just updating the code with the threaded version, I also added some ...read more...

Richard Dale: Microsoft ditch IronPython and IronRuby

System & Utilities

By and large I don't really care about what Microsoft do - I don't use their software, and I actively avoid making my career dependent on them. But I am a fan of the C# programming language and think the Qyoto/Kimono bindings for the Qt and KDE apis are pretty neat.

However, the recent decision to lay off all the IronPython and IronRuby guys is so monumentally stupid, I don't know where to start. I still think C# and Mono are really innovative, and don't agree with all the Free Software trolling against them, even when it is from Richard Stallman himself. So what should we do? Arno is clearly not happy with working on C# bindings even though they are technically pretty amazing. Steve Ballmer why are you are still in charge?

Stefan Majewsky (majewsky): Strings and Qt

System & Utilities

Robin Burchell wrote up something on the various string classes which are available in Qt. Unfortunately, the comment function on his blog does not work for me, so I have to respond in a separate blogpost.

Basically, Qt has two string classes. By “string”, I mean a chunk of memory which is interpreted as a set of consecutive characters. The most common string class, as Robin noted correctly, is QString, which stores the characters in UTF-16 internally.

Robin then goes on to discuss std::string. It is, however, my opinion that std::string is of limited interest for Qt developers, unless they are going to interface with STL-based libraries. This is because std::string has a better equivalent with a more precise name: QByteArray. Both std::string and QByteArray are wrappers around the traditional char* character array. As such, they are best used in scenarios which do not depend on the locale.

QString has a diverse set of conversion functions from and to QByteArray (or char*), each of which specifies its own ...read more...

Dennis Nienh

System & Utilities

Last time I wrote about offline routing in Marble: Calculating routes between two or more places without the need for Internet access. This was realized using gosmore. In the meantime Niko Sams added support for routino, another offline router, to Marble. My last commit adds traveling salesman support, an offline router written in java. All of this will not be available in KDE SC 4.5, but 4.6.

Most users will only need zero or one offline routers. With three of them supported by Marble, the question arises which one to choose? Ignoring their underlying algorithms and configuration options for now, I collected some high-level statistics. They show the relative differences of map sizes and response times. The response time was taken as the minimum response time among three or more runs, each measuring the time from sending a route request to the application until the full retrieval of the response in Marble. I chose two routes, a short one and a longer one, and compared the response times ...read more...

Jos Poortvliet: Dot readership

System & Utilities Hi all,

A while ago I asked for comments from readers of the dot. There was a lot of valuable feedback which was noted by the dot editors and I'd like to summarize some of the findings. The dot team has unfortunately been quite busy with Real Life (TM) lately so we haven't had much chance of discussing the results yet but some things are already under way.

Ideas and feedback

  • Introduce a Like button - status: To be discussed

  • Pace of articles - OK, so we keep the speed at 1 article/day

  • More technical content like the famous 'Pillars of KDE 4' series by Troy - though one. The dot depends on YOU for content, at least to a large extend. While the promo team writes articles like interviews and reports from meetings, we often lack the technical skills/knowledge to really write about what's upcoming. We might be able to do something like a weekly report on what has been on the planet in terms of upcoming things, but otherwise - we need ...read more...

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): Javascript DataEngines Get Services

System & Utilities DataEngines written in JavaScript can now offer Services. Sounds life changing, right? Ok, maybe not, but really, I swear it is! ;)

DataEngines publish data in a read-only pattern that allows the data to be accessed and shared by multiple consumers (or what we usually refer to as "visualizations"). The "read-only" part is a bit of an annoyance if the data being presented represents a live artifact. For instance, if a DataEngine was reporting on the network link, it might be nice to set the status of that network interface. Of if the DataEngine was publishing information about windows on screen, it might be nice to be able to say, "Hey, minimize that one." Or if the DataEngine shows information from an online service, it might be really useful to say, "By the way, here are my log in credentials for that service."

Plasma has the concept of a "Service", which does pretty much what it sounds like: it provides an interactive service that you can make calls to. What those calls do, exactly, is completely up ...read more...

Pedro Lopez-Cabanillas: Electronic Music Stands

System & Utilities We are in full swing of electronic books, bubbles that are likely to explode into a new phase of the war between the old and new generations of publishers, content providers and consumers. It is likely that sheet music enter the battlefield.

Before proceeding I must warn you about two facts. One: despite the name of the blog, I am a Trekkie. Two: I am not a neutral observer. In my opinion traditional books publishing, as well as media labels, are going to lose. Those not able to adapt to changing times will disappear. Resistance is futile.

The musicians are going to adopt electronic lecterns sooner rather than later. The electronic scores begin to replace the editions printed on dead trees, as is already happening with books. There are some solutions on the market, more or less primitive.

Релиз Quake Live

Unix News

Сегодня Quake Live наконец-то выходит из стадии бета-тестирования, начавшегося в феврале 2009.

Напомним, QL это разработка id Software (ныне ZeniMax). Интересна тем, что позволяет запустить модифицированную версию Quake 3 прямо из браузера. Присутствуют элементы социальной сети (друзья, кланы), ведётся учёт статистики, есть античит и множество серверов по всему миру, в том числе и в России. Большинство карт QL взято из оригинального Quake 3 (некоторые их них слегка изменены), также добавлено много новых хорошо сбалансированных карт. Геймплей и графика сохранены, с небольшими исправлениями. Например, нет "мяса" (gibs).

Игра с момента первого анонса горячо обсуждалась - уже в первые шесть часов бета-теста она собрала более 100 тысяч пользователей. В ноябре 2009 года их было уже больше миллиона.

Сегодня, вместе с очередным обновлением, с игры снимается статус "бета". Несмотря на настораживающие заявления ZeniMax, она останется бесплатной. Но будет возможность возможность приобретения "Премиум" и "Про" подпискок, дающих следующие преимущества:

Премиум-подписка (1.99$ в месяц):

  • Доступ к 20 новым картам
  • Новый режим игры ‘Freeze Tag’
  • Особые награды (awards)
  • Возможность создать клан и вступить в пять кланов сразу
  • Возможность повесить фоновый рисунок на страницу профайла
  • Статистика ...read more...

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): quick wiki experiment update

System & Utilities This is a quick follow-up on my post from yesterday about adding content to Userbase and Techbase.

The good news is that two people (besides myself) have started adding content to the Plasma Panels page. There's a discussion thread with three people (including me) adding to it. This is great!

Aaron Seigo (aseigo): copyright assignments of the third kind

System & Utilities Richard Hillesley wrote an articled title "Copyright assignment - Once bitten, twice shy" that was published today. When boiled down its essence, Richard said two things in the article:


  1. Forced assignment of copyright raises the barrier to participation and therefore limits the amount of participation.

  2. When someone else owns rights over your work, they can do nasty things to them.



Both of these statements are true. They are also not without provisos. Richard noted that the FSF provides a promise that it will never close the software up, for instance, which makes point two a matter of diligence: if you assign your copyright to someone without anything in return, such as a guarantee of how those rights will be managed (including termination of said rights should the other party break that guarantee), then you have just made a huge mistake.

It's not all roses for projects that avoid copyright assignment, though: Richard notes the four years that the Squeak community has spent trying to get a license change through. When it comes time to defend ...read more...

Thomas Thym (ungethym): RKWard is amazing!

System & Utilities I had the pleasure to meet Aleix Pol and Stu Jarvis at Akademy. They guided me the way to KDE EDU and scientific apps for KDE.

Weeks later I am sitting in my office doing some statistics. The funny thing is, that your brain sometimes is useful and I remembered an app called rkwrd or something.

My friend google told me that it is called RKWard and that it is not a KDE Application. It is an application based on kdelibs (it I see that right).

At home I fired up my kBook and installed the packages for r and RKWard. After a quick look into some of the nice tutorials I could do my first analysis and the linear regression I wanted to do. Brilliant. What a fantastic application. And I had such a hard time during my studies calculating statics by hand.

The other advantage is that I am reminded that I wanted to invest more time for the promotion of KDE EDU (inculding ...read more...

Заморожен Debian 6.0 Squeeze

Unix News

Сегодня, во время ежегодной конференции разработчиков Debian «Debconf10», проходящей в Нью-Йорке, было объявлено объявлено о важном этапе разработки грядущего релиза этого замечательного дистрибутива — заморозке Debian 6.0 Squeeze. Это означает, что дальнейшая работа будет включать лишь доведение Squeeze до уровня стабильности и качества, которыми славится дистрибутив. Новые пакеты добавляться не будут.

Релиз будет основан на ядре Linux 2.6.32 для всех архитектур.

Среди интересных нововведений следует отметить:

  • DKMS — фреймворк для сборки модулей ядра, не входящих в основную ветку.
  • Упорядочение init-скриптов по зависимостям при помощи insserv, что сделает загрузку системы быстрее за счёт параллельного выполнения скриптов.

Присутствует возможность использования ядра FreeBSD в окружении GNU, но качество реализации порта всё ещё невысоко.

Начата подготовка документации к дистрибутиву, для чего привлекается как можно больше добровольцев, в целях обеспечения перевода на как можно большее количество языков.
