Kernel tuning with sysctl

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 76.183.9.4] on September 11, 2008 01:33 PM
"Federico Kereki is an Uruguayan systems engineer with more than 20 years' experience developing systems, doing consulting work, and teaching at universities."

For anyone complaining about the disconnect between Federico's abundant experience and "where to go from here", ponder this:

a) He has posted more than just this article. He is most definitely giving back to the open source community, even though it might not be in a shrink-wrapped, wikified format you desire.

b) Is the suggestion of a wiki a bad one? Not at all; feel free to get cracking on that. :-) I've been a computer professional for 20+ years myself, and going from memory, I've added one whole page to the Ubuntu site, and some years back was trying to help package up NIS+ for RHEL (despite lack of experience in packaging at the time).

c) It's easy to complain. It's a bit more of a challenge to step up and write something for others to consume. It's even more challenging to do so in a way which not only keeps the reader's interest, but is concise, well-written (not full of typos and grammatical atrocities), ... you get my point.

d) He's from Uruguay. How cool is that? :-)
