This tutorial shows how to do data striping across four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 11.10) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 11.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with MySQL authentication (using mod_auth_mysql) on Apache2 on a Debian Squeeze server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the Apache server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files.

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 11.10) to a distributed replicated storage with GlusterFS. Nodes 1 and 2 (replication1) as well as 3 and 4 (replication2) will mirror each other, and replication1 and replication2 will be combined to one larger storage server (distribution). Basically, this is RAID10 over network. If you lose one server from replication1 and one from replication2, the distributed volume continues to work.

Linux version 3.1.6 (patrick@debian) (gcc version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-4) ) #3 PREEMPT Fri Jan 6 13:05:50 MST 2012

I wrote a simple java app that waits for input from a user then finishes. I have a usb keypad plugged in. When I run the program in windows it works fine, When I run it in linux it finishes before I enter any input. When I check the output it seems the keyboard is inputting "PK" even before I press anything. How can I fix this? Here's the tail of the logfile re: the usb keypad:
