December 2008 pagetest » home

Pagetest is an open source tool for measuring and analyzing web page performance right from your web browser. AOL developed Pagetest internally to automate load time measurement of its many websites, and it has evolved into a powerful tool for web developers and software engineers in testing their web pages and getting instant feedback. We decided to release it to the grander web development community to further help evolve it into an even more useful - and free - web performance tool.

Server2Go - Self configurable WAMPP Stack

Server2Go is a Webserver that runs out of the box without any installation and on write protected media. This means that web applications based on Server2Go can be used directly from cdrom, a usb stick or from any folder on a hard disk without the hassle of configuring Apache, PHP or MySQL. Server2Go allows you to create a standalone working web site or PHP application on a CD-ROM. There are many examples of its possible useses such as catalogue software, calculation programmes, image campaigns (CMS-based), computer based training lessons or other applicatons. Most PHP-Software such as the content management system Joomla or the computer based training software Moodle can be used from CD-ROM with the help of Server2Go. Server2Go was developed in the first instance for use on CD-ROM but there is no problem in using it from other drives too. Using a web browser, a user can run php programs as well as view html files on the CD-ROM. He only needs to insert a CD with Server2Go. The server software starts automatically and a browser is opened with the Website of the CD-ROM. Server2Go was built in the first place to replace other CD-ROM webservers such as WampOnCD or Microweb that lacked some important features or are not being actively developed. Main Features * Free! No royalties * Complete WAMPP Server-Stack * Runs directly from CD-ROM, USB Stick or Hard disk without installation * Full featured webserver (based on apache) * PHP 5.x support with many extensions installed (e.g. gd) * Supports SQLite databases * Runs on all versions of Windows from Win 98 and above, MAC OSX support is coming * Support for MySQL 5 Databases * Supports many PHP extensions (GD-Lib, PDO...) by default * Support for Perl 5.8

Z-Push - open source push technology

Mobile data synchronization is becoming increasingly important for many people, and various standards have arisen to perform this two-way copying 'over-the-air'. The most important platforms that can do wireless synchronisation are ActiveSync that is used to communicate with Exchange Server and Research-in-Motion's BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES). Both solutions require proprietary server-side software from the vendor, therefore limiting the use of PIMs (personal information managers) to either wired synchronization or irritating 3rd-party synchronizers requiring the installation of client software on the PDA.> Open Source Collaboration Software for the Enterprise

Additions to a default Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex install — Lone-Wolf Scripts

Last Ubuntu versions enable you to install software by clicking on a link in your browser. If you want to install only some of the software list in this page, you can do it by simply clicking on the links put on the packages' names. This is not a security breach, since these packages are installed using apt-get and your configured repositories. It's only a little helper for lazy people :D

August 2008 :: Using free software for HTTP load testing

by 1 other (via)
A good way to see how your Web applications and server will behave under high load is by testing them with a simulated load. We tested several free software tools that do such testing to see which work best for what kinds of sites. If you leave out the load-testing packages that are no longer maintained, non-free, or fail the installation process in some obscure way, you are left with five candidates: curl-loader, httperf, Siege, Tsung, and Apache JMeter.

Dimdim: Free Live Meeting, Web Conference, Net Meeting, Online Meetings, Online Training, Desktop Sharing, Web Meeting, Free Web conferencing, eLearning, Presentation Software, Web x collaboration, Collaboration software

by 5 others
Dimdim est une application intranet-internet de réunion à distance, à l’instar de logiciels comme Netmeeting ou Ekiga. Ainsi, il est possible de diffuser la voix de trois personnes au maximum sur tous les clients, ou de voir la caméra du maître de conférence. Ce dernier peut choisir, en outre, d’afficher : - son écran - un document au format PDF - un document au format Word - un document au format Excel - un document au format PowerPoint Dimdim ne se trouve pas sous forme de logiciel, mais s’intègre à un site Internet déjà existant. L’éxécutable installera un serveur apache, Tomcat. Dès lors, l’intérêt devient énorme quand on pense aux plateformes d’apprentissage en ligne, où les étudiants pourront avoir des cours en direct. Dimdim semble à terme avoir un gros potentiel, d’autant plus que des paquetages d’installation existent pour différents LCMS (Learning Content Management System) : Claroline, Moodle et SugarCRM et s’installent facilement, comme des modules.

Des screencasts avec recordMyDesktop - Le blog de llaumgui

by 1 other
j'ai découvert recordMyDesktop disponible à la fois sous GNOME (pyGTK) et sous KDE (pyQT4). Assez méconnu, ce logiciel ne manque pourtant pas de mérites. Il y est possible de paramétrer la qualité de l'image et du son et de le configurer pour que la compression se fasse après coup et non à la volé. Le fait de pouvoir paramétrer une compression post-screencaste lui permet de ne pas bouffer le CPU comme Istanbul et, au final, d'obtenir des vidéos plus fluides. C'est pour cela et pour toutes les autres options, que je l'ai adopté.

Vdoop - Manage your virtual cluster - Vdoop

Every day, search companies like Google download terabytes of data from the Internet, store it on clusters of thousands of machines, and process it so that it can be easily searched. To make this possible, these companies need sophisticated distributed file system and parallel programing architectures. Have you ever heard of the Map/Reduce distributed parallel programing paradigm? If you are a computer scientist, you should have, because every time you submit a Google search, you are using Map/Reduce. Despite growing demand from companies like Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft, few computer science majors have even heard of Map/Reduce, let alone graduate well versed in its use. Unfortunately, several barriers exist to integrating Map/Reduce into computer science curricula. Obtaining a large cluster, configuring it, and installing complicated distributed file system and parallel programing software is difficult, time consuming, and expensive. In the past, Google's solution to this problem has been to ship entire clusters pre-configured with Map/Reduce software to select universities. In essence, Vdoop does same thing, with exactly the same software, except for our clusters are virtual, and hence free.

Task Coach

by 3 others
Task Coach is a simple open source todo manager to manage personal tasks and todo lists. It grew out of Frank's frustration that well-known task managers, such as those provided with Outlook or Lotus Notes, do not provide facilities for composite tasks. Often, tasks and other things todo consist of several activities. Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks.

Automating deployment and activation of virtual images

Virtualization offers advantages that include server consolidation, isolation, rapid provisioning, and improved change management processes. Since virtualization breaks the hardware dependency and isolates virtual machines from details about the physical servers on which they are hosted, virtual images can be moved from one hosting platform to another. They can also be cloned to create more virtual machines, as desired. One of the challenges with cloning virtual images is handling operating system, network, and application specific customization. This article provides a sample framework for automating virtual image activation on new host platforms. This article, along with a previous article on Using virtual image templates to deploy WebSphere Application Server, demonstrates an automated approach for quickly and easily provisioning new WebSphere Application Server environments. The sample deployment and activation code included with this article is independent of WebSphere Application Server and can be used in conjunction with other software inside a virtual image. The specific example provided here is for WebSphere Application Server V6 in VMware or XEN virtual images, using SUSE V10 as the guest operating system. The activation techniques described in this article can be used in conjunction with IBM Tivoli® Provisioning Manager as described in Using Tivoli Provisioning Manager to deploy composite virtual appliances.
