This article explores eBPF (Extended Berkeley Packet Filter), tracing its evolution from a simple packet filtering tool to a transformative technology reshaping system and network monitoring, security, and observability. Delving into core concepts, diverse use cases, and the burgeoning eBPF ecosystem, the article highlights how eBPF is revolutionizing modern computing by enabling real-time, customizable data collection and analysis within the Linux kernel.
mod_expires is a module which runs on the Apache web server. It allows manipulation of the cache control headers to leverage browser caching. What this means more specifically is that you will be able to set values on how long the image will be stored by the browser when a client makes a request. This […]
WebP is a new image format that provides a lossless and lossy compression on PNG and JPEG file types. It was developed by Google resulting in up to 80% smaller image size. It is supported on all most all modern browser versions. You can use Nginx and Apache to determine if this format is supported […]
Galera cluster is a true multi-master MySQL cluster using synchronous replication. It allows for any of the nodes to be used as a master or all of them as well as providing automatic node joining and node removal. The multi-master configuration is very different from the typical master-slave configuration done with MySQL servers and […]
Mod_deflate is an apache module. Prior to having mod_deflate it was mod_gzip. Post apache 2.0 mod_deflate is used, it provides a slightly better compression than mod_gzip. It allows the size of certain file types to be compressed which in-turn allows clients to be able to download these files faster. This will cause the site itself […]
You can use Nginx to Set cache expiration times to leverage browser caching for the user requesting specific file types. This will cause the browser to retain the downloaded image until the length of the expires header. This will cause faster page time loads on each subsequent request performed by the end user. Prerequisites: You […]
