Running Linux 5.15-rc1 Causing A New Slowdown... Here's A Look

Phoronix - Thu, 09/16/2021 - 18:30
As usual when the Linux 5.15 merge window began wrapping up, I set out to dive into its performance to see what is in store for this next version of the kernel and whether there was any regressions or other performance changes worth noting. Linux 5.15 overall has been in good shape for the "-rc1" state except noticing that code compilation workloads were taking longer on multiple Linux 5.15-rc1-running systems than Linux 5.14 or prior. Seeing it across multiple systems and a very real-world regression, it was worth bisecting and looking closer so here are the details.

Watch commands and tasks with the Linux watch command

opensource.com - Thu, 09/16/2021 - 15:02

There are many times when you need to wait for something to finish, such as:

  • A file download.
  • Creating or extracting a tar file.
  • An Ansible job.

Some of these processes have some sort of progress indication, but sometimes the process is run through a layer of abstraction, and the only way to measure the progress is through its side effects. Some of these might be:

How I patched Python to include this great Ruby feature

opensource.com - Thu, 09/16/2021 - 15:01

Ruby, unlike Python, makes lots of things implicit, and there's a special kind of if expression that demonstrates this well. It's often referred to as an "inline-if" or "conditional modifier", and this special syntax is able to return one value when a condition is true, but another value (nil, specifically) when a condition is false. Here's an example:

NumPy, or Numerical Python, is a library that makes it easy to do statistical and set operations on linear series and matrices in Python. It is orders of magnitude faster than Python lists, which I covered in my notes on Python Data Types. NumPy is used quite frequently in data analysis and scientific calculations.
