node-oracledb 0.4.1 is on GitHub (Node.js driver for Oracle Database)

Just a few small changes in this update of the href="" >Node.js driver for
Oracle Database.

  • Support for External authentication was added
    This closes Issue #15.

  • The isAutoCommit flags now works with query execution. This
    is useful in cases where multiple DML statements are executed followed
    by a SELECT statement. This can be used to avoid a round trip to the
    database that an explicit call to commit() would add.

Using Tuned to tune CentOS 6 System

Tuned is a Dynamic Adaptive Tuning System Daemon. According to Manual Page
tuned is a dynamic adaptive system tuning daemon that tunes system settings dynamically depending on usage. For  each  hardware  subsystem  a specific monitoring plugin collects data periodically. This information is then used by tuning plugins to change system settings  to  lower  or higher  power saving modes in order to adapt to the current usage. Currently monitoring and tuning plugins for CPU, ethernet network and  ATA harddisk devices are implemented.

Unix - run multiple commands on remote machines in parallel

Assume you have a requirement of running two commands on 10 hosts.In this post I would like to show you how you can:1) Run multiple commands on remote host using ssh.2) Also instead of working on one host at a time serially, how can we execute the commands on multiple hosts in parallel to save the overall execution time.Example:Find the number of files under '/sdb/_read/' and '/sdb/_write/' directories on following 10 hosts.

How to merge or split pdf files using convert

I am currently working on log normalization as well as improvements for rsyslog's imfile. Among the things that regularly come up on the rsyslog mailing list is support for multi-line logs and Java stack traces in general.I would like to see what I can do to improve processing of these. To do so, I need a set of samples of such logs. As such, I look for people who would like to contribute log records for my research.

Compiling Gromacs 5.0.4 on CentOS 6

Compiling Gromacs has never been easier using the cmake. There are a few assumptions.

  1. Use MKL and Intel Compilers
  2. Use OpenMPI  as the MPI-of-choice. The necessary PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH have been placed in .bashrc
  3. We will use SINGLE precision for speed used MDRUN and MPI Flags

Here is my configuration file using Intel Compilers
