Go 的 net/http 在 1.22 的 routing 新功能

Gonet/http 在 1.22 引入了更方便的 pattern matching:「Routing Enhancements for Go 1.22」。


http.Handle("GET /posts/{id}", handlePost2)

後續可以透過 PathValue() 取出來:

idString := req.PathValue("id")


The precedence rule is simple: the most specific pattern wins. This rule matches our intuition that posts/latests should be preferred to posts/{id}, and /users/{u}/posts/latest should be preferred to /users/{u}/posts/{id}. It also makes sense for methods. For example, GET /posts/{id} takes precedence over /posts/{id} because the first only matches GET and HEAD requests, while the second matches requests with any method.

但是當有重疊卻無法判斷相對吻合度的 rule 被加進去時,會直接 panic()

What if two patterns overlap but neither is more specific? For example, /posts/{id} and /{resource}/latest both match /posts/latest. There is no obvious answer to which takes precedence, so we consider these patterns to conflict with each other. Registering both of them (in either order!) will panic.

這的確是種方法啦... 而且留有之後處理的空間,真的有好的方法就可以把 panic() 的邏輯改成新的共識。

Tails 換網域名稱,從 tails.boum.org 換到 tails.net

看到 Tails 換了一個新的網域名稱,從本來的 tails.boum.org 換到了 tails.net 上:「Welcome to tails.net!」。

看了 tails.netWHOIS 可以發現這也是個老域名了,甚至比 Tails 軟體出現的 2009 年還早:

Updated Date: 2022-08-09T10:30:42
Creation Date: 2002-12-18T11:36:37
Registrar Registration Expiration Date: 2024-12-18T11:36:37

理所當然的,本來的 tails.boum.org 也還會動,目前是重導到 tails.net 上面。

然後研究了一下 boum.org 是什麼,用「site:boum.org -site:tails.boum.org」翻了一下各家搜尋引擎:「Kagi 的」、「DuckDuckGo 的」、「Google 的」。


另外如果是用 site:tails.boum.org 找,可以發現除了主站以外,下面其實還不少 subdomain,像是 gitlab.tails.boum.org 這樣的網域,所以應該是還有不少東西要改...

25Gbps 下 HTTPS 的效率

作者家裡拉了 25Gbps 的 Internet 後 (可以參考先前寫的「25Gbps 的家用 Internet」這篇),然後發現 Internet 上好像拉不動 25Gbps 的量,所以自己在家裡先測試了現在 HTTPS 的極限速度:「25 Gbit/s HTTP and HTTPS download speeds」。

Client 是 AMD 的 5600X,算是目前最新的世代;Server 則是 Intel 的 9900K,目前最新應該是 12 代;測試用 35GB 的檔案來測,然後使用 TCP BBR (這邊沒有特別講,目前 kernel 內建的還是 v1)。

在單條 HTTP 的情況下 curl + nginx 與 curl + caddy 都可以直接跑滿 (23.4Gbps),Gonet/http 會卡在 20Gbps 左右。

如果是多條 HTTP 的話都可以跑滿 23.4Gbps。

但到了 HTTPS 的情況下最快的是 Go + net/http,可以跑到 12Gbps;curl + nginx 剩下 8Gbps;接下來 curl + caddy 的部份只有 7.5Gbps,而 go + caddy 只有 7.2Gbps。

上到多條 HTTPS 的情況大家都可以跑滿 23.4Gbps,除了 go + caddy 只能跑到 21.6Gbps。

另外作者試著用 kTLS 把 TLS 的工作丟進 kernel,就不需要全部在 nginx 內處理,速度基本上沒有太大變化,主要是降低了 CPU loading:

In terms of download speeds, there is no difference with or without KTLS. But, enabling KTLS noticeably reduces CPU usage, from ≈10% to a steady 2%.

算是一個有趣的發現,如果目前的 HTTPS 想要在 25Gbps 上面單線直接跑滿,還需要再 tune 不少東西...

AWS 昨天公告了 84 個 /16 的 IPv4 位置

Hacker News 首頁上看到 AWS 昨天公告了 84 個 /16 (IPv4):「AWS adds an extra 5.5M IPv4 addresses (github.com/seligman)」。

這使得 AWS 在整個可用的 IPv4 network 佔的空間從 1.61045% 上升到了 1.75915%,不確定這 84 個 /16 花了多少錢買...

另外看到國外 ISP 的一些作法,發 CGNAT 的 IPv4 位置,以及實際的 IPv6 位置,這樣對於有支援 IPv6 的應用就可以反連回去:

When I lived in Ireland I only got a public IPv6, my IPv4 was behind CG-NAT. The nerd in me wasn't a fan of that on paper, but in reality I didn't have any issues with it.

家裡的第四台還是 IPv4 only 啊 (至少不是 CGNAT,之前被換到 CGNAT 時有去幹繳過),要連 IPv6 資源目前還是只能透過 6to4 去摸,看起來是連到香港的 HE,速度普普通通...

Cloudflare 遞出 S-1

Cloudflare 遞出 Form S-1:「S-1」。TechCrunch 有些整理:「Cloudflare files for initial public offering」。


As far as money goes, Cloudflare is — like other early-stage technology companies — losing money. But it’s not losing that much money, and its growth is impressive.

預定在 NYSE 上使用代碼「NET」:

The company will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “NET.”


AI 版的星海爭霸二將直接透過歐洲區的 Battle.net 匿名與人類對戰

前幾天 Blizzard 公佈的消息,DeepMind 的星海爭霸二 AI (AlphaStar) 將會透過 Blizzard 的 Battle.net 歐洲區伺服器跟人類對戰:「DeepMind Research on Ladder」。

Experimental versions of DeepMind’s StarCraft II agent, AlphaStar, will soon play a small number of games on the competitive ladder in Europe as part of ongoing research into AI.


If you would like the chance to help DeepMind with its research by matching against AlphaStar, you can opt in by clicking the “opt-in” button on the in-game popup window. You can alter your opt-in selection at any time by using the “DeepMind opt-in” button on the 1v1 Versus menu.

但你仍然不會知道對手是人還是 AI,而且如同一般對戰情況,這會影響到你的戰績:

For scientific test purposes, DeepMind will be benchmarking AlphaStar’s performance by playing anonymously during a series of blind trial matches. This means the StarCraft community will not know which matches AlphaStar is playing, to help ensure that all games are played under the same conditions. AlphaStar plays with built-in restrictions that the DeepMind team has defined in consultation with pro players. A win or a loss against AlphaStar will affect your MMR as normal.


加州從今年七月開始,禁止 AI 偽裝成人類 (前幾天也有一些新聞在報導):「A California law now means chatbots have to disclose they’re not human」,對應的法條在「Bill Text - SB-1001 Bots: disclosure」這邊可以看到:

17941. (a) It shall be unlawful for any person to use a bot to communicate or interact with another person in California online, with the intent to mislead the other person about its artificial identity for the purpose of knowingly deceiving the person about the content of the communication in order to incentivize a purchase or sale of goods or services in a commercial transaction or to influence a vote in an election. A person using a bot shall not be liable under this section if the person discloses that it is a bot.

(b) The disclosure required by this section shall be clear, conspicuous, and reasonably designed to inform persons with whom the bot communicates or interacts that it is a bot.

而加州是 Blizzard Entertainment 的總部...

法條上面對「online platform」有設計排除條款,不過如果只算星海二的人數,有可能不到這個豁免限制... 所以得避開而改用歐洲區來測試?

(c) “Online platform” means any public-facing Internet Web site, Web application, or digital application, including a social network or publication, that has 10,000,000 or more unique monthly United States visitors or users for a majority of months during the preceding 12 months.

(c) This chapter does not impose a duty on service providers of online platforms, including, but not limited to, Web hosting and Internet service providers.

美國軍方應該是超級關注這個議題,相較於 AlphaGo 或是 AlphaZero 是資訊完全透明的遊戲,這次要踏入非對稱資訊的遊戲。

如果在這個領域上有成果的話,可以預期未來的戰爭 (yeah 實體戰爭) 會開始大量採用 AI 了...

GitHub 推出 Package Registry

GitHub 推出了「GitHub Package Registry」,可以代管自己開發的軟體。

目前支援 npm (Node.js)、DockerMaven (Java)、NuGet (.NET)、RubyGems (Ruby) 五個平台,

隔壁 GitLab 說我們早就有了而氣噗噗中:「Packaging now standard, dependency proxy next?」。

Anyway,省下一些事情,以前會透過 CI/CD 丟到像是 packagecloud.io 這樣的服務上讓內部使用,現在看起來 GitHub 上面可以解決一些簡單的情境...

分析 FCC 對網路中立性的留言,將鄉民與機器人分開來分析

Boing Boing 的立場其實還蠻鮮明的,所以有時候他們的新聞看看就好...

但這篇真的很有趣,把 FCC (美國的聯邦通信委員會) 上兩千兩百萬則對網路中立性的留言拿出來分析,結果發現真人與機器人的差異超明顯 XDDD:「Analysis of 22 million FCC comments show that humans love Net Neutrality and bots really, really hate it」,引用的文章在「Discovering truth through lies on the internet - FCC comments analyzed」這邊。

分析可以發現,真人偏好網路中立,而機器人反對網路中立 XDDD:(其實大家心裡都有底是怎麼玩出來的... 只是這次有機會分析,讓事情更明顯)

Data analysis company Gravwell ingested 22,000,000 comments sent to the FCC's docket on Net Neutrality and posted their preliminary findings, which are that the majority of comments came from bots, and these bots oppose Net Neutrality; of the comments that appear to originate with humans, the vast majority favor Net Neutrality.

文章中列出幾個有趣的現象,像是機器人的 comment 大量重複:

A very small minority of comments are unique -- only 17.4% of the 22,152,276 total. The highest occurrence of a single comment was over 1 million.

甚至是 pornhub.com 的郵件位置 XDDD:

Most comments were submitted in bulk and many come in batches with obviously incorrect information -- over 1,000,000 comments in July claimed to have a pornhub.com email address

然後機器人的 pattern 也很容易辨別:

Bot herders can be observed launching the bots -- there are submissions from people living in the state of "{STATE}" that happen minutes before a large number of comment submissions

這個有點類似「50 Cent Party (五毛黨)」,但是是自動化機器人,而且產出的「品質」不太好 XDDD

電信商對 Zero Rating 與網路中立性的問題

在「AT&T users will be able to stream DirecTV Now without using their data」這邊才看到 FCC 在這個月月初針對電信商對特定服務的 zero rating 發出警告:「The FCC tells AT&T it may be violating net neutrality with its DirecTV plans」:

AT&T is far from the only US carrier to zero rate data. T-Mobile has been ostentatiously offering free data for music and movies for a year now, and Verizon also zero rates video from its Go90 app. But in zero rating DirecTV, the FCC thinks AT&T may have gone too far.

AT&T 說任何人只要付錢都可以參加這個 plan:

AT&T’s argument is that any company that participates in its Sponsored Data program has to pay AT&T for it, and that includes DirecTV.

但問題還是在 AT&T 擁有 DirecTV,所以是左手付到右手:

Except, again, AT&T owns DirecTV, so even if one division is paying another, the overall company still ends up not paying any money.


The situation for other companies is very different — and the FCC believes that the price they’d have to pay is “significant[.]”


Perl 上的 Monkey Patch

這整個週末都在跟 Net::DNS 奮戰 edns-client-subnet,遇到模組內的一小段程式有 bug,先用 monkey patch 硬上,之後再看看要怎麼丟 patch 回 upstream。

monkey patch 的方法主要是參考「How can I monkey-patch an instance method in Perl?」這邊提供的方法而來的。

由於實際的行為是 subroutine redefined (會產生警告訊息),所以要局部關掉 warnings,然後再把整個 subroutine 換掉:

use BugPackage;

    no warnings;
    local *BugPackage::bug_function = sub {
        # new code
