It is known that measuring performance is one of the most challenging tasks in system administration. It requires proper configuration and a good understanding of the results. Fortunately, Linux systems offer a wide variety of tools for obtaining performance metrics. In this blog post, we will focus on the instrumentation capabilities of the Linux kernel and some interesting methods of analyzing the results.
The importance of the kernel lies in the fact that usage information related to CPU, memory, disk space, or network interfaces is always passing through it, and it cannot be bypassed.
Windows Event Forwarding (WEF) is a service available on Microsoft Windows platforms which enables the forwarding of events from Windows Event Log to a central Windows Event Collector. Since the technology is built into the operating system, this means you can centralize log collection without having to install third party software on each Windows node. You can also use Group Policy for configuring clients to forward their events. This approach not only standardizes client management but also streamlines it.
Applications are getting more and more complex. The demand to develop them faster is ever-increasing. This puts stress on organizations’ processes, infrastructure, and the IT teams that support them.
Modern Container technology helps to alleviate issues faster across multiple environments. Linux containers are another evolutionary leap in how applications are developed, deployed, and managed. These containers are based on stable Red Hat Enterprise Linux images that have no adverse effects on your current IT infrastructure.

DNS Log Collection on Linux In the third, closing part of our series on DNS log collection, we discuss DNS logging on Linux using open source software. From the numerous open source DNS server implementations available, we tried to include the more popular ones and summarized what is involved in collecting logs from them.
