  • First Aid Git : searchable collection of the most frequently asked git questions.
  • Intel Cache Allocation Technology :provides a way for the Software (OS/VMM) to restrict cache allocation to a defined 'subset' of cache which may be overlapping with other 'subsets'. When multi-threaded applications run concurrently, they compete for shared resources including L3 cache. At times, this L3 cache resource contention may result in inefficient space utilization. For example a higher priority thread may end up with lesser L3 cache resource or a cache sensitive app may not get optimal cache occupancy thereby degrading the performance. CAT kernel patch helps provides a framework for sharing L3 cache so that users can allocate the resource according to set requirements.
  • Fido : system for automatically analyzing security events and responding to security incidents.
