10 basic examples of Linux ps command

Up
vote
Down

The ps command on linux is one of the most basic commands for viewing the processes running on the system. It provides a snapshot of the current processes along with detailed information like user id, cpu usage, memory usage, command name etc. It does not display data in real time like top or htop commands. But even though being simpler in features and output it is still an essential process management/monitoring tool that every linux newbie should know about and learn well. read more...

HowTo: HTTP Status: 206 Partial Content and Range Requests Using Curl

Up
vote
Down

The HTTP 2xx class of status codes indicates the action requested by the client was received, and processed successfully. HTTP/1.1 200 OK is the standard response for successful HTTP requests. When you type www.cyberciti.biz in the browser you will get this status code. The HTTP/1.1 206 status code allows the client to grab only part of the resource by sending a range header. This is useful for:

* Understanding http headers and protocol.
* Troubleshooting network problems.
* Troubleshooting large download problems.
* Troubleshooting CDN and origin HTTP server problems.
* Test resuming interrupted downloads using tools like lftp or wget or telnet.
* Test and split a large file size into multiple simultaneous streams i.e. download a large file in parts. read more...

webOS: The latest Linux distribution

Up
vote
Down

The source or cause of the joy is none other than the announcement from HP that webOS will be, in their own words, a “pure open source project.” Awesome! Did I see this coming? Yes, sir! Did I influence HP’s decision? Perhaps.

Ok, alright, that last one is a stretch, but back on August 19 2011, after HP had announced that it “will discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones,” I suggested in a blog post (see what HP should do with webOS), that “to not let webOS be a failed distribution, here’s what I think HP should do with webOS – make it a free, Linux distribution, such that the relationship between it (HP) and webOS would be akin to that between Red Hat and Fedora, or Canonical and Ubuntu.” read more...
