comment Does AWS EC2 have secondary disks scattered across the cluster?
It should also be noted that non-provisioned EBS can be either magnetic or SSD, it's up to you. Provisioned is always SSD.

comment Free linux server monitoring tool
"I don't want 100 graphs/machine. I want to be able to select what are the needed datas." There are 100 graphs because "the needed datas" changes from user to user and situation to situation.

comment How to design a scalable app?
This is like asking "I need to build a car, how do I start?" Way too broad.

comment accessing same domain name through a different port
This is trivially done in a webserver's configuration. I can't imagine a situation where you can't add a virtualhost but you're allowed to change routing, ports, and DNS. Is this just a "fun" hypothetical situation?

comment Stop sending all ec2 instance package upgrade email to client
Also, "I'm sure security upgrades are manage by EC2" is not true. Installing updates is up to you.

comment Can we launch website without AWS Load Balancer?
+1 for the ELB being a small cost compared to the servers they're using.

comment Can we launch website without AWS Load Balancer?
You don't need an ELB for a single server. Cost-wise they're only like $15/month though

@sciurus Ansible runs on the host, not the VM.

comment New Relic crashes Apache
IonCube may not play nicely with something like New Relic - NR is intended to help you debug code, IonCube's intended to keep you from figuring out how the code works.

comment How many events per second can one server using elasticsearch handle
"In this case you are saying a powerful server could handle 10,000 eps and the software would not be a limiting factor." No, I am not saying that. I'm saying you'd need to test it out on your hardware and software.

Probably because the limits are not fixed. You have to benchmark it with your schema and your hardware.

comment How many events per second can one server using elasticsearch handle
"One server" could range anywhere from something the size of a fingertip with a few megabytes of RAM to a giant server with a terabyte of RAM and a bunch of processors.

comment Misses in cloudfront CDN
CloudFront has many, many servers, and if your data isn't accessed too often the files can be removed to make room for other files. Some of your requests will hit origin no matter what you do.

comment Access Denied: CloudFront Signed URL
@Leito That thread links to github.com/dylanvaughn/aws_cf_signer. You can also shell out to boto (which drives the AWS CLI) - boto.readthedocs.org/en/latest/ref/…

Why not use the AWS CLI and/or Ruby SDK?

comment Current setup maxing CPU. Need help designing AWS architecture and MySQL Clustering via AWS RDS instances
Your developer's code should fetch only the necessary rows to display the page at hand. Presumably you're not showing 600k products on a single page. Have them implement pagination so something like 100 products are shown on one page.

comment Current setup maxing CPU. Need help designing AWS architecture and MySQL Clustering via AWS RDS instances
SELECT * on a 600k product table means every bit of that data - likely megabytes worth - is being transferred between your webserver and your database server for every request. You won't see significant improvements without fixing that issue.

comment Current setup maxing CPU. Need help designing AWS architecture and MySQL Clustering via AWS RDS instances
If you have a lot of products, a SELECT * call on that table will be horribly inefficient no matter how powerful the server.

30,000 pageviews monthly is a pageview every 41 seconds on average. That really should not be maxing out anything.
