We talk about NFS and Jthan rants about mean people on the intarwebz.
Just the Tip
- Paden talks about ack, which touts itself as being “better than grep” (lol) and is written in Perl (lol).
- Man page is here.
Starts at 12m34s.
I was drinking Kraken. Paden was drinking Diet Dr. Pepper. Jthan was drinking hot peppermint tea.
- We didn’t mention it on-air, but RHEL 5’s deployment guide (yes, RHEL 5) has a section on NFS.
- There apparently are some NFS benchmarking tools:
- I suggested that Jthan use ramdisks to test NFS performance.
- There are some key differences between NFSv3 and NFSv4 (considering v4 was more or less a total rewrite).
- NFSv4 has a much revamped ACL system.
In this segment, Jthan shares with you a little slice of life. The title is a reference to this video. (2m16s in)
Starts at 38m03s.
Jthan saw an article about systemd-homed on the internet and people got big mad at him.
We talk about systemd in more detail in S0E8 and S2E11. But seriously, if your big deal is systemd “taking over” the linux ecosystem, I have news for you: you should have the same gripe about coreutils. sysvinit is not a comparison to systemd. Its analogue is systemctl. systemd is a whole suite of software, just as GNU coreutils is. Where’s the outrage over that? Get off your high horse and actually learn how things work for once.
- The “GovLove” thing Jthan mentions is the music for S1E6.
- And I got it wrong; the artist was GovLove; the track was “Sauronator”. Oops.
- The listener who suggested nornir was Micah Shields. Thanks, Micah! We’re working on it.
- AutoFS is indeed a separate project from NFS, in the sense that NFS utilities are on sourceforge (the driver is in the kernel itself), and autofs is a part of the kernel.
- The IETF submission form for drafts (to then be ratified/edited to RFCs) can be found here. The actual process of submission, voting/review, etc. can be found here.
