Amazon EC2 的 C5 改跑 KVM

前幾天提到的「Amazon EC2 的 C5 家族...」講到 Amazon EC2 推出 C5 系列帶來的效能與價錢的提昇,後來在 The Register 上看到「AWS adopts home-brewed KVM as new hypervisor」這邊提到更多東西,而且有些還頗有趣的... 首先是 Amazon EC2 FAQs 裡面就有提到的,C5 跑的是 KVM,而不像以前是以 Xen 為底: Q. What is the underlying hypervisor on C5 instances? C5 instances use … Continue reading

HTTP Archive 研究挖礦網頁的現狀

HTTP Archive 出來研究這個主題感覺就很適合:「The Performance Impact of Cryptocurrency Mining on the Web」。 不過作者是用 script name 去分析,應該還是會有一些漏網,不過可以看出一些數據了...

Cloudflare 測試 ARM 新的伺服器

Cloudflare 測試 ARM 新的伺服器 (是由 Qualcomm 與 Cavium 提供工程樣品給 Cloudflare 測試):「ARM Takes Wing: Qualcomm vs. Intel CPU comparison」。 原文有很多測試數據,可以看出來跟以前比起來好很多。系統程式的效能都還不錯,跟 Intel 平台各有輸贏,但 Go 對 ARM 的最佳化好像不太好,有點慘... 不過這樣至少表示了有機會互拼,如果考慮電力使用情況,加上這還是工程樣板的話,應該是可以拉板凳了?

看完 AWS 給的 WordPress + CloudFront 指南後...

我覺得還是用 Cloudflare 比較實際... (寫了那麼長,有種負面教材的感覺 XDDD) AWS 的原文在「How to accelerate your WordPress site with Amazon CloudFront」這邊可以看到。 對照 Cloudflare 的說明:「Using Cloudflare with WordPress」,除了長度外,可以看到一堆設定都包好了: 然後提到比較現實的,Cloudflare 把 domain 掛上去就有不用錢的方案,hmmm...

HTTP/2 時代的 API 設計

在「Let’s Stop Building APIs Around a Network Hack」這邊提到了以前為了解決 HTTP/1.1 的問題而發展出來的 workaround,在 2015 年發展出來的 HTTP/2 從底層直接解了不少問題,加上很快被許多瀏覽器支援 (就算不支援 HTTP/2 也只是降到 HTTP/1.1 跑,比較慢而已): Guess what else was released in May 2015? RFC 7540, otherwise known as HTTP/2. In retrospect this seems highly poetic, … Continue reading

Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 推出的 Asynchronous Key Prefetch

Amazon Aurora (MySQL) 推出新的效能改善,可以改善 JOIN 時的效能:「Amazon Aurora (MySQL) Speeds Join Queries by More than 10x with Asynchronous Key Prefetch」。 看起來像是某個情況的 optimization,將可能的 random access 換成 sequential access 而得到大量的效能: This feature applies to queries that require use of the Batched Key Access … Continue reading
