Apache HTTPD 2.2.28-beta ready for testing
User Rating: / 0

Finished up some improvements to the build/aix scripts in the httpd-2.2.x trunk and have posted the result as ASF.httpd.ppc.2.2.28.beta.I

Whether my changes actually get into the distribution of 2.2.28 is uncertain - as the release is pending. However, if you are curious about them - you can download them here

HOWTO: Collect performance baseline statistics
User Rating: / 3

Use nmon as basis for performance analysis

Update: fixed syntax errors in script. The find commands were never working!

Too often I visit customers and "discover" that they have one of many condiftions that make analysis of performance very difficult. Generally there is either too little, too much, or (too) different data collected to do a proper analysis. At the end of this article I provide a script as an example of how performance data collection can be standardized. In between I discuss the reasoning for the number of collections, as well as number and duration of the samples.

Although many customers have adopted the use of nmon for collecting performance statistics their collection process is rarely standardized. When it is standardized the intended detail of data is often lost in the reports because the defaults taken or chosen are not sized right.

Perl 5.20.0 for AIX - real soon!
User Rating: / 0

I blame it all on ApacheTest Wink because I was trying to test the latest version httpd-2.4.10 and was getting lots of errors. Of course, perl-5.8.2 and perl-5.8.8 are properly ancient - while perl-5.10.1 is merely past end-of-life.

In short, I needed to do my testing on AIX 7.1 with the supported version of perl at v5.10.1. That was at least enough for the latest CPAN to load and to get the bundle ApacheTest to load.

Good news is: http-2.4.10 comes up with 0 errors - of all that were not skipped at least - AND, I nearly have perl v5.20.0 ready for trial for AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1 and AIX 7.1 - as aixtools.perl.5.20.0.0.I

More news soon! Cool
