[Links of the day] 11/07/2016: SSD failures, BCC , NUMA deep dives


  • SSD Failures in Datacenters : Best student paper : SSD fail, What? When? And Why? 
  • BCC : I have been trying to trace some nasty RCU stall bug ( which turn out to be just the symptom of another problem) and BCC was really useful with this ordeal. It is quickly turning into the linux swiss army knife of debugging. BPF is an amazing piece of software. 
  • NUMA Deep Dive Series : Start of a series of posts looking into history and modern NUMA architecture.
