Spam-Kühlschrank in a Botnet-of-Things: Von gehackten Items aus dem Internet of Things werden wir in Zukunft noch sehr viel hören: Zwischen den Jahren hat ein Spambot Netzwerk über 100.000 Dingse von Mediaplayern bis SmartTVs inklusive einem Kühlschrank übernommen und mit dem Kram Spam verschickt.

Appstats für Python - Google App Engine The Python SDK includes the Appstats library used for profiling the RPC (Remote Procedure Call) performance of your application. An App Engine RPC is a roundtrip network call between your application and an App Engine Service API. For example, all of these API calls are RPC calls: Datastore calls such as db.get(), db.put(), or db.query().Memcache calls such as memcache.get(), or memcache.get_multi().URL Fetch calls such as urlfetch.fetch().Mail calls such as mail.send(). Optimizing or debugging a scalable application can be a challenge because numerous issues can cause poor performance or unexpected costs. These issues are very difficult to debug with the usual sources of information, like logs or request time stats.
