Move from quantity to quality?
By John Clingan on Jan 07, 2005
Disabling nscd and the automounter in each zone seems to have given the Ultra 10 a second wind. It's running 190 zones. There's some headroom left before it hits the danger zone. Scott, my storage guy, may have to up my disk space on the 6920 soon.
The v880 is cranking along as well. It's in the process of booting 600 zones all running Apache. Don't know if I'll keep going in the quantity direction or not. Perhaps it's time to move in the "quality" direction. Quantity is fun, quality means business. Customer type business. I'm investigating automating installation of a 3-tier app in a zoneright now. Probably petstore using the Java Enterprise System Application Server (conveniently pre-installed) and MySQL. In production these 3 tiers would probably be split among 2 (or 3) zones, but that's too complicated an install script for what I want to do.
