You often read about the value of code comments and good meaningful variable/method/object names. Yet sometimes when your coding your under presume to release a patch, or you think to yourself who wouldn’t understand this code it’s so beautifully laid out and formatted.
Today I fell victim to my own beautifully laid out and formatted code. Yikes!
and left(accno, 1) in ( '2', '3', '4', '5', '9' )
I’m sure at the time I was very familiar with why accounts that started in that range were important but a few months on I cannot remember.
From this day forth I promise to do Code as Documentation mum!
If your looking for a really quick and easy way to load test a deployed Rails app you can’t get much simpler than Apaches ab tool.
To load test public pages just use
ab -n100 -c5 -t10 http://google.co.za/
-n requests Number of requests to perform
-c concurrency Number of multiple requests to make
-t timelimit Seconds to max. wait for responses
To load test secured pages you will need pass cookie information
ab -n100 -c5 -t10 -C identifier=cookie http://mysite.co.za/secured_page
Getting the cookie details using Chrome is really easy.
1. Login to the secured area
2. Find the request in Developer Tools => Network
3. Look for the cookie details in the response headers
Happy load testing!
Just fire off *147*100# and you will get back some data which includes your cell number.
I had this situation today… a staging server went wonky to the extent that I couldn’t ssh in. Luckily I have an iPhone so I could reboot the VPS via my hosting providers web based control panel, which I have to say has been rock solid. Over the last 3 years I had only 4 outages basically 99.99 uptime.
So my question is can’t we have an url to reboot the server that we can bookmark? Something that will authenticates me and kicks of the reboot same as if I did it via the control panel.
Let me know your thoughts I’m very curious.
Sometimes it’s handy to restore a backup without first having to gunzip it.
gunzip < dump.sql.gz | mysql -u username --password=password databasename
Sometimes the fingers are ahead of the brain and you need amend your last git commit message.
git commit --amend -m "your new message"
The below will backup the database databasename on localhost
mysqldump --add-drop-table -u username -p databasename | gzip -c > archivename.sql.gz
