Performance impact when using VMware snapshots It is certainly not unheared of – “When I delete a snapshot from a VM, the thing totally freezes!“. The strange thing is, some customers have these issues, others don’t (or are not aware of it). So what really DOES happen when you clean out a snapshot? Time to investigate! Test Setup So how do we test performance impact on storage while ruling out external factors? Windows 2003-R2-SP2 VM (32 bit);Single vCPU;2048 MB memory;5 Gbyte boot drive as an independent disk on a SAN LUN;VM configuration and 4 GByte performance-measurement-disk on local storage (10K disks RAID1);IOmeter (version 2006.07.27) installed;Configure perfmon to measure both reads and writes per second from PhysicalDisk with a 20 second interval;Build these VMs on both an ESX3.5 and vSphere server to see any differences. Note that the VM configs were also placed on local storage. IOmeter was setup for a total of two tests. Table 1: IOmeter setup How VMware snapshotting works But who ever reverts snapshots on a regular basis?

Password Safe - Quickstart Guide Quickstart Guide Steve McPherson has created this amusing clip highlighting the cooler features of PasswordSafe (Thanks, Steve!) HowToAnswer.com has written a nice introductory guide showing how to get started with PasswordSafe. Here's a short video demonstrating PasswordSafe's menus and features, courtesy of FindMySoft: [The following short guide is taken from Password Safe's online help] Creating and Opening a Safe Password Safe allows users to store all passwords in a single "safe" (password database), or to create multiple databases for different purposes (e.g., one for work, one for personal use). If you are using Password Safe for the first time, press the New Database button. Create a New Database There are two ways that a new database can be created. Note: By default, Password Safe will show the database last used, and displays a combination prompt for it. Using Stored Passwords Password Safe provides several mechanisms for using stored names and passwords.

About Dynamic-Link Libraries Dynamic linking allows a module to include only the information needed to locate an exported DLL function at load time or run time. Dynamic linking differs from the more familiar static linking, in which the linker copies a library function's code into each module that calls it. Types of Dynamic Linking There are two methods for calling a function in a DLL: DLLs and Memory Management Every process that loads the DLL maps it into its virtual address space. The system maintains a per-process reference count for each DLL. Like any other function, an exported DLL function runs in the context of the thread that calls it. The threads of the process that called the DLL can use handles opened by a DLL function. For more information about DLLs, see the following topics:

Unroot/Unbrick using .sbf post from -ikithme- - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum I take no credit for the release of the .sbf file nor any of Motorola's software or drivers Reactivate means dialing *228 in the phone app and choosing option 1, for those that don't know. Requirements A. 2.0.0 VZW_A855_ESD20_QSC6085BP_C_01.3B.01P_SW_UPDATE.sbf (.sbf file) or 2.0.1 VZW_A855_ESD56_QSC6085BP_C_01.3E.01P_SW_UPDATE_03. sbf (.sbf file) B. Instructions: 1. Credits: dordodim for the sbf file. End notes: Have fun. Edit: If I missed someone in the credits please tell me and I will make sure to add them. Edit 2: If you do not see Run as Administrator in the right click menu for RSDLite, then you need to hold Shift while right clicking. If you are on a Mac, you will need to get VMWare and install Windows. When the flash is complete, you will need to re-enable USB Debugging for adb to work, and if you are on a computer that has not used adb before, you will need to install the Motorola USB Debug ADB Driver. If RSDLite does not see your phone, you need to run it as Administrator.

Upside-Down-Ternet My neighbours are stealing my wireless internet access. I could encrypt it or alternately I could have fun. I'm starting here by splitting the network into two parts, the trusted half and the untrusted half. /etc/dhcpd.conf IPtables is Fun! Suddenly everything is kittens! /sbin/iptables -A PREROUTING -s 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 -p tcp -j DNAT --to-destination 64.111.96.38 For the uninitiated, this redirects all traffic to kittenwar. For more fun, we set iptables to forward everything to a transparent squid proxy running on port 80 on the machine. /sbin/iptables -A PREROUTING -s 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.0.1 That machine runs squid with a trivial redirector that downloads images, uses mogrify to turn them upside down and serves them out of its local webserver. The redirection script Then the internet looks like this! And if you replace flip with -blur 4 you get the blurry-net I made xkcd - how cool is that ?
