Performance Optimization

Tuning Ubuntu Server Like a Racing Car


No matter on which kind of server you install it, Ubuntu Server will always be installed with the same settings. To give an example, the area of reserved memory in RAM for packets coming in to the network board will always be the same, no matter if your server has 128 MB or 128 GB of RAM. As you can guess, there’s something to gain here! In this chapter you’ll read about performance optimization. We’ll explore what possibilities there are to optimize performance of the CPU, RAM, storage, and network. I’ll also give a few hints on optimizing performance for network services like Samba and NFS. If everything goes well, at the end of this chapter, your server will be performing a lot better.
