The Cndnsd Vrsn: 4pm Thursday June 5 ACS Rm 123 - Rob Kolstad: Fast Mailing Lists and Web Sites.
If you're interested in performance of Unix boxes or, particularly, how to
move more bits over a network link, this talk is for you. It includes only
case studies presented as a pair of narratives that demonstrate general
techniques for optimizing and tuning specific applications to increase their
performance (measured as speed or latency or other characteristics).
This two-for-one talk includes discussions both on optimizing UNIX-based Web
servers and E-mail servers for ultra-high throughput. The first case study
will show how a PC can drive a T-3 line flat out with simple web pages. The
second case study will demonstrate a simple series of steps that enables a
PC mail server to achieve 100,000 e-mail deliveries per hour.
Rob Kolstad is president of Berkeley Software Design, Inc. and a well-known
speaker in the UNIX community. His interests include optimization, promoting
computing as a profession, and racquetball.
The next meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be in room 123 of the
CU Academic Computing Center building at Arapahoe and Marine Streets in Boulder.
Marine St intersects Arapahoe at 38th St; the Computing Center is on the southwest corner.
At the May 15th meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group
Mike Sanford of Santa Cruz Operation discussed the co-existence of SCO UNIX and Windows NT.
See the previous meetings page on the Fruug web site for more detail.
In July... we haven't got a reply from our hoped-for speaker so stay tuned.
FRUUG is looking for users of the Apache WWW server on UNIX for a
possible Fall meeting on WWW server experience. If anyone is currently
running that server or knows anyone who is running it, please contact
fruug at fruug.org.

Remember the 900-plus page Sendmail book from O'Reilly & Associates?
Well now they've condensed everything you need to know into the
Sendmail Desktop Reference, which actually should be called the
Sendmail Pocket Reference, since it is truly pocket-sized and
contains everything you'll need to know about sendmail-- honest!
From Addison Wesley this month, we have the hypertext UNIX for
the Hyper-Impatient. For those who would prefer to click their
mouse rather than flip their pages, this one's for you.
You may check books out using your business card as your library card; you
must be on the membership list to check books out. Books are due at the meeting
following the one in which they are checked out. If you don't
return your library books by the next meeting, you might find
yourself on our overdue book list.
We count on you returning books on time so that other members
may have the chance to use them as well.
