[Links of the day] 12/04/2016: distributed systems class, docker for HPC and nice monitoring system

  • netdata : nice monitoring systems for a single node system
  • distributed systems class : a must read distributed system class by Aphyr (Kyle Kingsbury). It pretty much covers everything you need to know as an introductory class and give you enough pointer to then dig deeper into the wonderful world of distributed systems. Bu beware, like alice in wonderlands you never know how deep the rabbit's hole goes. 
  • Shifter : docker container seems to have have some limitation when it comes to run in HPC environment. By example the lack of capabilities to run on disk less node is a significant limiting factor. Shifter was created using docker technology with HPC as the main deployment environment in mind to specifically address these shortcomings.
