Normally Linux servers are very much secured and illegal or unauthorised access is almost not possible with security policies in linux.

In this case we need to perform log cleanup manually in order to reclaim the space and its tedious task to administer these logs. To overcome this we can configure logrotate utility available in Linux which automatically does […]

In this case we need to extend linux mount point so that larger space can be given to mount point. LVM gives […]
For better performance of the system we must tune Linux kernel parameter. Once you know what to optimize it comes to doing it by writing a parameter to the /proc file system which will tune linux kernel parameter.This /proc filesystem is created by the kernel when your server comes up, and it normally contains the settings for […]
You must create swap space in Linux for better performance. Every server needs swap space, even if it’s never going to use it. Swap space is allocated when your server is completely out of memory, and using swap space allows your server to continue to offer its services. Therefore, you should always have at least a minimal […]
