I am planing to have very soon few highly loaded postgresql databases. I have some expirience managing mysql databases with high load, but now we have to use postgresql.
I want to know what are the best tools for day-to-day database management and status reporting. (Of course console is the best...
@ConcernedOfTunbridgeWells just one so far - don't ask me to keep calm
@dezso not if they're sufficiently answered - do they need new answers? That'd be the only reason to keep it open. The C++ book model on SO has a community wiki answer that everyone keeps updated, rather than invite new answers or keep different sets of resources separate. The other thing I like about closing them is that they can't be used as "but this person asked a similar question, and it's not closed!"
@dezso I suspect that will be a long list - and I don't know if there's an easy way to see when this trend started, or how long the user may have waited to exact their revenge. It'd all be speculation.
Flagging is actually more likely, at least in my few run-ins with this on SO, the reason is that the scorned user pissed off is a new user who doesn't understand how the site works, thinks that closing their question is abuse, and doesn't have the rep required to VtC.
@phil note that sometimes I will vote to leave a question open if the vote is to move it somewhere else and the question itself is craptastic
@dezso doesn't make them on-topic. If they have good answers that haven't become obsolete I'm ok with leaving the question up on the site, but don't want to encourage more answers or use them as examples of questions to be asked here.
@dezso I think it means that if there are enough LeaveOpen votes (without any Close), then it is removed from the queue. Not really sure though, and no idea if there are rules when both close and leave open votes are placed.
@ypercube oh that may be true. I do know though that a leave open vote by a moderator is not binding (the close votes are still there, though I don't know if it's in the queue still because the queue knows I've already seen it so doesn't show it to me).
Anyone else finding that KB articles from support.microsoft.com are taking a minute or more to finish loading lately? I'm not yet sure if it's just the BlueCoat proxy that's been installed here or something else.
@Phil Since the new dustbins came out they just aren't in demand anymore.
@Phil, apropos of nothing at all, get one of at least Nelahem generation. At that point Xeons went from FSB to Quickpath (and were thus much, much faster). You might have to do your homework about which models had this architecture.
Hey man, to each his own. If you want a screaming machine, you're likely spending about the same amount of money regardless of which vendor you go through. If you just need to get by, you're not. Some people are happy with an '82 Tercel that still runs, or an '11 Civic. Some people aren't. There's no universal right answer for what computer to by. It's how much are you willing to spend and how much performance do you need.
These days I think the main claim to fame of something like a Z820 is the memory capacity. If you wanted something memory heavy (maybe an in-memory server like Tabular Model or Qlikview) then it might be useful.
@ConcernedOfTunbridgeWells yes, dual boot just for the odd game or two. I've no need for windows otherwise, as I have a VMware Fusion licence (and parallels, was hard to choose between them at one point).
@Phil @ConcernedOfTunbridgeWells I've been thinking about one of these. 32 GB of RAM so it's probably decent for a home lab, plus has a decent GPU if I want to play games or crack passwords. Anything other than a laptop isn't really a good option for me since I have a very small apartment.
@JamesLupolt I had a cow-orker who had a shiny new Clevo that overheated and died. My thinkpad was quite a bit more expensive but still keeps trucking. As an alternative to a laptop, you could look at something like this: www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/workstations/z230.html
They're about the size of little corporate desktop machines and you can get them off ebay quite cheaply (especially older models).
