AWS Direct Connect 可以多條線路綁在一起用了

AWS Direct Connect 支援 Link Aggregation Group (LAG),將多條線路綁在一起了:「AWS Direct Connect enables Link Aggregation Group for additional AWS regions」。

We are excited to announce support for 1G and 10G Link Aggregation Groups (LAG). Customers in AWS GovCloud (US), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (London), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney) regions can start using LAG to link existing connections on the same AWS device, or request new connections.

主要還是對於超大量的用戶會變方便 (都是使用 10Gbps 線路接上去的使用者),尤其是 load balancing 這塊會好做不少。

多條 1Gbps 的當然也是有幫助,不過剛好只會落在一個微妙的範圍 (到 8Gbps 的時候,直接換 10Gbps 成本說不定其實差不多...)。

V8 對 for-in 的最佳化

V8 引擎的人對 for-in 的最佳化寫了一篇解釋「Fast For-In in V8」,比較直接的結果就是維基百科Facebook 都變快了:

For example, in early 2016 Facebook spent roughly 7% of its total JavaScript time during startup in the implementation of for-in itself. On Wikipedia this number was even higher at around 8%.

可以看得出來是挑比較大的來改,而下一版的 Google Chrome (57) 將會對 for-in 會到另外一個極致:

The most important for-in helpers are at position 5 and 17, accounting for an average of 0.7% percent of the total time spent in scripting on a website. In Chrome 57 ForInEnumerate has dropped to 0.2% of the total time and ForInFilter is below the measuring threshold due to a fast path written in assembler.

主要是因為 spec 對 for-in 的定義寫得很模糊,所以就有很多實作的空間可以調整:

When we look at the spec-text of for-in, it’s written in an unexpectedly fuzzy way,which is observable across different implementations.

DynamoDB 推出 TTL 功能

DynamoDB 推出了依照時間自動刪除的功能:「New – Manage DynamoDB Items Using Time to Live (TTL)」。

You can enable this feature on a table-by-table basis, specifying an item attribute that contains the expiration time for the item.

這個功能比較特別的是,刪除的 scan 是不收取費用的:

There is no charge for the internal scan operation or for the deletion. You will pay for storage until the item is actually deleted.
