Ubuntu: Benchmarks and HowTos

  • Early Ubuntu 21.04 Benchmarks Point To Some Slides In Performances But Overall Flat - Phoronix

    Some of the most significant slowdowns seen on this system were with heavy multi-threaded workloads with the likes of the Intel SVT video encoder benchmarks. But with both Ubuntu 20.10 and 21.04 making use of GCC 10, one of the possible scenarios is a regression in the power management of Linux 5.10 or Intel's Thermald. Ubuntu 21.04 currently is on Linux 5.10 from 5.8 and Thermald 2.4 from 2.3.1. In any case this was just some quick tests prior to sending back the review unit, so as the Ubuntu 21.04 release approaches in two months, I'll be back around with tests on more hardware.

    Overall though the Ubuntu 21.04 performance isn't in bad standing if looking at the geometric mean of 223 benchmarks conducted on Ubuntu 21.04 Dev vs 20.10, the overall performance is quite close just with some regressions at least for the moment. This largely jives with what we have been seeing with other x86_64 hardware like shown in yesterday's Ryzen desktop tests.

  • How to Install Ubuntu on VirtualBox with Ease - WhaTech

    Want to test Linux, but don't want to install it traditionally on your computer? You can create a virtual machine with Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution in VirtualBox. Don't know to do it? Check out this post.

    Thanks to virtual machines, it is possible to install any operating system, and then run it in a window on our current system. This is facilitated by the VirtualBox program, which allows you to quickly create a virtual machine, allocate part of our computer's resources to it, and then install the system of our choice, e.g. any Linux distribution. When we get bored, the virtual machine can be deleted. This does not affect our current operating system in any way.

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
