Just recently I needed to perform some load / stress testing on a web application hosted on the east coast of america. I had a number of dedicated test boxes around Ireland and the UK but I was concerned that the geographic distance may be playing a part in the results I was seeing So I needed to get a server in the US from which I could launch similar tests. M-Net is a public-access UNIX system based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, owned by Arbornet You can telnet in to m-net.arbornet.org, login with newuser, no password, and it will allow you setup a username with password on a free bsd shell Great idea. It allowed me perform performance tests on my web app on the east coast from mid western US.

Installing sysstat on Ubuntu 1. Install apt-get install sysstat 2. Enable collection of system performance data vi /etc/default/sysstat set “ENABLED” to “true”. 3. Start the sysstat service /etc/init.d/sysstat start 4. Take a look at performance data every 10 minutes. sar If you'd like to change the interval (every 10 minutes) by which sysstat collects data. You can change the interval by editing /etc/cron.d/sysstat PATH=/usr/lib/sysstat:/usr/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin # Activity reports every 10 minutes everyday 5-55/10 * * * * root command -v debian-sa1 > /dev/null && debian-sa1 1 1 # Activity reports every 5 minutes everyday 5-55/5 * * * * root command -v debian-sa1 > /dev/null && debian-sa1 1 1
