Links of the day 02/12/2015: fast linux perf analysis, Path to AI, Datacenter transport

  • Linux Performance Analysis in 60,000 Milliseconds : fast minimal performance analysis approach allowing to quickly narrow down where the issue might come from. 
  • Path to general AI : interesting essay on AI and why the current path for will not allow the emergence of a true intelligence as human understand it.
  • pHost : Distributed Near-Optimal Datacenter Transport Over Commodity Network Fabric. This is an improvement over the previous Fastpass transport as it allows end-hosts to directly make scheduling decisions, thus avoiding the overheads of centralized scheduler architecture
