  • Cheap Electric Power Measurement

    Our existing profiling tools for improving software performance implicitly also identify parts that presumably increase the power consumption, and we do have specialized tools like powertop that are good at identifying specific types of power drains. But not everything is visible in there, e.g. CPU/GPU trade-offs, or the actual effects of power management options or display settings.

    So being able to measure the actual power consumption between the wall plug and the full device seems useful, to the very least to verify that assumptions we make from other profiling tools actually hold.

  • How to install Zenmap Nmap GUI on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS - Linux Shout

    In simple words, the Zenmap is a graphical user interface developed for “Nmap“, a tool that we use on the command line terminal for scanning ports and networks.

  • How to use the history command on CentOS 8

    The ‘history’ command is used to display the terminal history. It keeps the history of all terminal commands executed on your system.

  • How to Create EC2 Duplicate Instance with Ansible | Linux Journal

    Many companies like mine use AWS infrastructure as a service (IaaS) heavily. Sometimes we want to perform a potentially risky operation on an EC2 instance. As long as we do not work with immutable infrastructure it is imperative to be prepared for instant revert. One of the solutions is to use a script that will perform instance duplication, but in modern environments, where unification is an essence it would be wiser to use more common known software instead of making up a custom script. Here comes the Ansible! Ansible is a simple automation software. It handles configuration management, application deployment, cloud provisioning, ad-hoc task execution, network automation, and multi-node orchestration. It is marketed as a tool for making complex changes like zero-downtime rolling patching, therefore we have used it for this straightforward snapshotting task.
