MySQL, Thread Caching, Linux and a busy site!

Heres an article that helped me with an issue over at a friends site http://www.ftatalk.com Their site was exploding and they need to tune out the current server as much as possible. One thing that I noticed was that MySQL wasn’t tuned properly. So After making some changes and finding out that there was no thread caching, I searched the web and found this article. Wow, it’s been a busy week. I was totally swamped for several days dealing with the remember.yahoo.com MySQL servers and related stuff. And then I used a day or two to recover (sleep, shower, etc). Anyway, I made some interesting discoveries along the way. The most surprising one had to do with thread caching on Linux when you have a busy MySQL server–busy in a particular way, mind you. Read the full article at jeremy.zawodny.com ***UPDATE*** I have moved ftatalk.com over to lighttpd and its doing wonders! You can also check out the ftatalk.com mirror at http://www.satfix.net I will also be writing an article about lighttpd and how it can help you get the most out of your hardware.

PC World Reviews Apple OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

PC World reviews the newest release of Apple's Max OSX version 10.5 codenamed "Leopard". In this review "Edward Mendelson" states one big remark.
"First: despite minor problems, it's by far the best operating system ever written for the vast majority of consumers, with dozens of new features that have real practical value—like truly automated backups, preview images in folders, and notes and to-do lists integrated into the mail program".
I have only played with Leopard in the last few days and seen it in action on a co-workers laptop, and I'm starting to thing more and more about purchasing a Macbook Pro! <!--brea--

Windows Live Photo Gallery 2008 12.0.1193.815 Beta

Microsoft is pumping out more free software for the masses. I've never heard or seen Windows Live Photo Gallery, but I thought about downloading and installing this application to give it a whirl. During the install, I asked to install a bunch more Windows Live applications. Specifically the Mail component, since my MSN account is attached to my Hotmail. After installing everything, I ran the Windows Live Photo Gallery, and it was pretty amazing.

Detect insider threats with Linux auditing

Detect insider threats with Linux auditing -

Organizations of all sizes need to mitigate the risk of insider threats. Misconduct by authorized users represents a grave threat to an organization. According to the 2005 Computer Security Institute and Federal Bureau of Investigation Computer Crime and Security Survey, organizations reported that computer intrusions from inside sources accounted for nearly half of all incidents. You can secure your network perimeter with intrusion detection systems, firewalls, and virus scanners, but don't neglect to monitor authorized users. The Linux Audit daemon can help you detect violations of your security policies.
