comment Free alternative to NI Real-Time Hypervisor?
From the words "real-time" in the name of the product, presumably it offers deterministic interrupt latency which is not something a general purpose OS offers.

comment How to increase filename size limit on EXT3 (on ubuntu)
On Linux PATH_MAX is 4096. It might be possible to get around that for some syscalls by changing cwd and using relative paths, though. That being said, a redesign to not need such long file names in the first place is perhaps the least painful approach.

comment Task spooler for computing server on Debian
slurm is another option which is quite popular, although perhaps more targeting efficient scheduling of large MPI jobs on large clusters.

comment Cannot increase MTU on gigabit network
@Sirex: 20% under what circumstances? @work I just measured 940 Mb/s using iperf without jumbo frames, which is 94% of the theoretical maximum, so a 20% improvement is just impossible in that case. (CPU usage was 5% of one core on the sender and 1% on the receiver; not only CPU's but also NIC's and the network stack in OS'es are different from 10 years ago.)
