Testing my Odroid in my server cluster

Posted 10-23-2013 at 07:10 AM by Pyplate

After adding my Odroid U2 to my cluster, I ran tests using siege on the front end of the cluster. There was an increase in performance, but it wasn't the increase I was hoping for. I logged into some of the Pi nodes using ssh and ran uptime to check the load. The Pi nodes weren't working particularly hard, and neither was the Odroid. I logged into the load balancer and checked the uptime and memory usage:

Testing Varnish Cache on an Odroid U2

I've fixed the issue with my Odroid freezing. The kernel update fixed that.

I also got Varnish to work. Most of the documentation I found for Varnish refers to an earlier version, but it seems that the latest version has changed a lot, in particular there have been a lot of changes to the Varnish Configuration Language. Fortunately the Varnish compiler gives excellent error messages which tell you how to fix the problems it encounters.

I often make changes to pages...

Getting secure host names

I basically ran python code like the following......
