Generating trusted SSL keys for development

Generating SSL keys for development


Thanks to minica it is very easy to create trusted SSL certificates that have a very long expiration date.

In order to get started you have to have the go tools installed and set up correctly in your environment.

Editing Files Remotely via SSH on SublimeText 3

Editing Files Remotely via SSH on SublimeText 3

Sometimes you need to edit a file on a remote server, but using vim/emacs is not very practical, due to lag and speed of screen refresh.

TextMate users have the classic rmate, but it was implemented in Ruby, which may not be available on the remote server.

A better option is to use this version of rmate, implemented in pure Bash. It's a single file, self-contained, and with no external dependencies.

Step by step:

Recovery from nginx "Too many open files" error on Amazon AWS Linux

On Tue Oct 27, 2015, began buckling under load, intermittently issuing 500 errors. Nginx's error log was sprinkled with the following errors:

2015/10/27 21:48:36 [crit] 2475#0: accept4() failed (24: Too many open files)

2015/10/27 21:48:36 [alert] 2475#0: *7163915 socket() failed (24: Too many open files) while connecting to upstream...

An article at provided directions that mostly worked. Below are the steps we followed. The steps that diverged from the article's directions are marked with an *.

  1. * Instead of using su to run ulimit on the nginx account, use ps aux | grep nginx to locate nginx's process IDs. Then query each process's file handle limits using cat /proc/pid/limits (where pid is the process id retrieved from ps). (Note: sudo may be necessary on your system for the cat command here, depending on your system.)
  2. Added fs.file-max = 70000 to /etc/sysctl.conf

NGINX tuning for best performance

Moved to git repository:

NGINX Tuning For Best Performance

For this configuration you can use web server you like, i decided, because i work mostly with it to use nginx.

Generally, properly configured nginx can handle up to 400K to 500K requests per second (clustered), most what i saw is 50K to 80K (non-clustered) requests per second and 30% CPU load, course, this was 2 x Intel Xeon with HyperThreading enabled, but it can work without problem on slower machines.

You must understand that this config is used in testing environment and not in production so you will need to find a way to implement most of those features best possible for your servers.
