More techie

Sorry, it’s been a while since I posted. I’ll be updating the site with more techie related stuff as I re-organize my tech notes once more.

Help fund

As time goes on, life can be a little hectic. I am currently facing a bit of a financial crisis and ask that if anyone has any projects they need done on the side to let me know. You can e-mail me robert@robertsarea.com

As always, any donations are helpful as I go through this rougher patch and get caught up. I am more than happy to return the favor in the future as I never forget a helping hand.

THP (Transparent Huge Pages)

According to RedHat
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/6/html/performance_tuning_guide/s-memory-transhuge

I usually use THP and this can be enabled very easily within the running system by issuing

echo always > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
echo always > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/defrag

With the above I always set the nr_hugepages to 512 or for smaller systems 128.

echo 512 > /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages

while loop (true)

Need to execute a set of commands in a loop, non-stop?

while true; do killall -9 program; sleep 3; done

This will tell your Linux O/S do killall -9, sleep for 3 seconds, and start it again. This is great if you don’t have access to a crontab or just need it for a quick fix.
