Re: most lightweight debian server
BSD 7.0 is alleged to be better than Linux 2.6.xx, but that is disputed.
You might want to use a different scheduler and I/O scheduler than the
default if you use a 2.6.24 kernel. As the man said, compile your own.
well, add RAM is out of question, because it is a limited to 64MB RAM
no intention to run GUI. no need for for DNS server. it only rum mysql5
and might be posfix server.
Postfix may not be as lightweight as others. This needs looking into.
I don't have much experience in that area.
but mysql5 and apach2 alone already consume 170MB of memory. more than twice
the memory allocated for my use.
Would SQLite do the job? I think it is smaller than MySQL.
can you point me to a documentation about default I/O scheduler
2.6.24 kernel. i love to see any option available. thank you
There are three I/O schedulers in the 2.6.24 distribution. The
deadline, anticipatory, and completely fair. You will see these as
options when you run make gconfig (or whichever config you run).
Completely Fair (CFQ) is now the default. This was mildly controversial
when they made the switch. It is a bit complex. The deadline scheduler
is simple and compact, and is alleged to be good for heavy database
This may be a bit like making a mountain out of a molehill. I just
mentioned this because while you are configuring you custom kernel, you
will want to give a little thought to such matters.
see /usr/src/linux/Documentation/ to start with.
