comment Slow network file copy on Windows 7
well Filezilla FTP works fine. it delivers the max speed possible like 70Mbps. However I am guessing its the negotiation between windows in the windows ways of doing things is screwed. Still no solution.

comment Slow network file copy on Windows 7
hey wesley, i follow you on twitter. coincidence. I tried this but it has no efect. Also tried mnually setting FUll duplex. One thing of note is that my windows 7 has gigabit ethernet connected to gigabit power adapter but the XP is 100 Mbps lan. I am going to try Filezilla ftp solution. sysamdin to rescue. darm i hate windoze

comment What's a common mechanism for emailing in the background?
I think you are right lamp_Scaler about using mail server as the middle man. Atleast the user experience is instantaneous. As to why connection is taking so long maybe your provider is at fault here. I suggest switching providers if possible or to pose this issue to them in their tech support.

comment Managing logs for several dynamic instance on Amazon
yes graylog combined with AMQP did my work perfectly. Awesome suggestion and to anyone else who finds this QA helpful know this that I mark it as correct after implementing the suggestion in production. Martin: Will also check out your suggestion for SNMP. Rotation, havent worked this out on graylog yet. lets see when i get to that bridge :D

comment Unable to remove limit on memory usage for PHP script
I read your response above on Tibbits answer. I was going to suggest (i know quite late) to look at limits. If ulimit is your problem you can make the change permanent with either with kernel tune parameter or i you OS has this file /etc/security/limits.conf and add memlock limit to unlimited for the user that runs php/web.

comment Unable to remove limit on memory usage for PHP script
sorry about that. What I am saying is that Piwik script is not a good way to test if your memory limit is working. Can you try to do this using a script in php, top of the script first line use ini_set('memory_limit', 'xxxxM'); and see if that works.

comment Unable to remove limit on memory usage for PHP script
hey Jess, Thanks for getting back. As I had guessed correctly this is a filed bug dev.piwik.org/trac/ticket/766 and therefore no amount of PHP tweaking gonna help. So leave your php to optimal settings and lets see if there is a patch more: forum.piwik.org/read.php?2,77831

comment What is the difference between a cloud server a virtual server and a dedicated server?
I give you points for good explanation. However I disagree that constant high load will not benefit from cloud. The true cloud will allow additional resources to be provisioned immediately and and maybe automatically to serve the extra loads. That is not possible on dedicated servers or VPS where we can hit a hard limit. Also VPS cannot scale easily to multiple VPS and requires a lot of manual intervention, self setup etc which is not so on the cloud. In case of VPS or dedicated server you own the failure if not the hardware. On the cloud you can just move along without opening a ticket :)

comment How are Amazon EBS snapshot's sizes calculated?
i checked just now in my account. Your EBS usage and backup usage will be displayed in the AWS console (if you use it). It always reads to be the full size as of the disk space for the first snapshot.

comment CPU cores and workers / maxservers
not really, if you do a "top" and then press "1" during operation you can see that nginx does not really need a lot of CPU. It can run well even on single CPU. However there are other processes like php/mysql or system processes that could use the free cpu. nginx uses by far the least amount of CPU even under heavy load (for static files). Always leave extra room to grow on a dedicated box.
