Raspberry Pi Server Cluster Performance

Posted 08-15-2013 at 05:36 PM by Pyplate

I've done some testing on my cluster. 4 Pies is definitely better than one, there's a big difference in performance between a single Pi and a 4 node cluster. You can read more detail here: server cluster testing.

As you'd expect, a cluster of four Raspberry Pies isn't that powerful, but setting it up has been interesting. It can handle a surprising amount of traffic - I got 2800 visits from Reddit yesterday. The minimum page load time is over a second (as tested on my local network),...

Load balanced cluster with Raspberry Pies

The PC is more powerful than the cluster, but if I just used the PC as a server, I wouldn't have learned anything about load balancing.

WiringPi-Perl example

Posted 08-12-2013 at 10:11 PM by drask

This is a Raspberry Pi project I did a few months ago and meant to post somewhere. There is a Perl interface to the WiringPi module. It's available from https://github.com/WiringPi/WiringPi-Perl. Unfortunately it doesn't come with any examples, but the WiringPi module comes with some nice examples. Unfortunately they are all written in C and it can take some trial and error to translate and I never found any translations of the examples online, or any WiringPi-Perl specific examples.

Giada – Audio tool for DJs, live performers and electronic musicians

Posted 08-09-2013 at 09:05 AM by sridhar11

Giada is a free, minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs, live performers and electronic musicians. How does it work? Just pick up your channel, fill it with samples or MIDI events and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler or yet as a plugin/effect host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows for production use and live sets.
