Linode 2003 Year-end Review

Dec 31, 2003 | by Christopher Aker

Dear Linode.com Member: I started development on Linode late-2002/early-2003, voluntarily leaving employment at a very good .com healthcare related company. I told myself that if it wasn’t a success by the end of the year (2003) that I’d call it quits. And so this was the year of reckoning for me and my life-long pursuit […]

Updated Console Access Program (lish)

Nov 8, 2003 | by Christopher Aker

The Linode Shell, or lish, is the small script that runs when you connect to the host ([email protected]) for console access. Lish now prompts you if you want to retry to connect to the console, instead of just attempting to reattach so many times and then disconnecting. This also solves the problem for people who […]

Host Load Average

Nov 8, 2003 | by Christopher Aker

The “Host Summary” widget on the LPM Overview page now displays the current “Host Load Average” updated every minute or so. The load is broken down into four groups: idle, low, medium, and high. If you split the bar into 10 ticks, each tick equals 1 loadavg. Thanks, and enjoy! -Chris

Disk Resizing Up and Down

Nov 8, 2003 | by Christopher Aker

I just released a new feature for resizing disk images both larger and smaller. For resizing larger, the only change was that if you resize a disk image labeled as swap, it will delete and recreate the swap image. Previously it would resize the Image itself, but not re-make the swap within. For resizing smaller, […]

Host Summary and Average CPU Statistics

Oct 31, 2003 | by Christopher Aker

I added a new [b]”Host Summary”[/b] widget to the Member’s Overview page. It conveniently displays which host you’re on, along with your average CPU usage on that host. This is calculated by recording the number of “CPU seconds” your Linode thread(s) consume, and comparing that against the total number of seconds from the beginning of […]
