Back in Black!

Restart bloging with one of my favourite songs!
“Back in black” promise kept!

What’s new?

Surely the first thing you’ll see is “some” old, old, old article but, hey… I hate to see empty webpages! :D I just found an old, old, old wordpress dump so… here it is!

Well, my hope is to keep two separated blog’s thread, English and (hear, hear) Italian.
This mainly because I know I have to improve my English skills and, second, because when I want to write down something I have to do it rapidly and Italian is the best way for me (at least at the moment) to not loose the “momentum”. I’m not an artist, I’m just lazy!

I will oblige myself to write in English as much as I can; I know this is the only way to keep things going better. Corrections are much appreciated!

Another thing: there are plenty of good tutorial written in English so I think that when I will write one, I will do it in Italian. Easier for me and better for Italian documentation panorama. :D

What’s next?

AudioBox.fm, Android, Java, Ruby, Rails and much more! Oh, and yes, PHP is out of my life! …I confess: I feel much better now!

Sun Fire T2000 Server

Here starts our Sun Fire T2000 Server project. Today we filled in the form that allow you to recieve for 60 days free a T2000 for testing it. After filled out and sent the form we had a little problem with our graylisting system, solved in a few, and we received an e-mail that confirm our subscription. Fast, about one minute or less.

Project

Our project is really simple, but surely we will test the most used and critical services and applications server.

Benchmarks

We will of course workout some empiric but usual benchmark such as SWaP (Space, Watts and Performance), but we also going to develop our stress applications for:

  • CPU
  • High Performance Computing
  • Web Servers
  • Mail Servers
  • Network File System
  • Java Client/Server

We not exclude some well known benchmark too.

Tests & Monitoring

We will test if the T2K is still responsive enought even under high amount of tasks (stress), trying to run differents services on it, checking the efficency of the hardware and the cooling system in critical conditions (limited to our capability).
One of the benefits Sun declaims is the significant power and cooling saves, for this reason we will check the consumptions and the real benefits all along our tests.
After that, we will try some minor feature such as clustering and/or shared computing.

The Machine

The T2K we asked for has a Standard configuration, you can find more informations about it here.

Stay tuned

Even if we filled in the form is still not sure that we will receive the T2K, if not, this is the end.
If the server comes, we will inform you about every test going on our bench day by day.

0.8.2… first bugs

Well… not what I calll “a perfect plan”.
I released two days ago and right few hours after I released first bugs appears in the board… -.-”

Got to fix those things before coding something new.

Fortunately when those annoying bugs are fixed I can concentrate my effort to implement some new feature. The “only” problem is that when I fix a bug a new one rises up. Damned unstable functions and reffers.

Hope to solve soon…
…in the meanwhile, well… be patient :D

Bye bye!
