…as Java types, but we can't go all the way. Regardless of how great the underlying VM is, if you can't hold to its immutable truths, you're walking against the wind. Ruby on Dart would probably not be any faster than Ruby on JVM, because you'd still have to implement mutable types and growable objects in pretty much the same way. Ruby on PyPy might be able to go farther, since the VM is designed for mutable types and growable objects, but you might have to sacrifice …
You can install New Relic Server Monitoring on your VM in's cloud from their pkgsrc repository. Pkgsrc is a SmartOS-optimized package repo, sort of like a yum or aptitude for packages.
First, you need to have a New here if you haven't already.account. Sign up
Make sure your pkgin database is up to date: pkgin update
Next install New Relic Server Monitoring from the Joyent pkgsrc repo: pkgin install nrsysmond
…while there may be cases where you don't need that (e.g. for a database VM), a VM without your code mounted into it is pretty useless.
The fix wasn't too hard:
I created a blank Vagrantfile (no recipes, just a simple box definition).
vagrant up and wait for the box to fail.
vagrant ssh to enter the box, or start with the GUI option and login through it.
execute sudo /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup
Then, exit the VM and execute the following: vagrant package vm_name --output …
It also doesn't hurt to assign names, so you know which VM you're dealing with when GUI is enabled: db_config.vm.customize [ "modifyvm", :id, "--name", "DB", ]
It doesn't hurt to have lots of CPU and RAM, but also configure the VMs accordingly. I run up to four virtual machines on a Macbook Air — usually configured with 256 to 512 MB. I imagine this would go smoother with VMWare Fusion, but since our team contains …
…method cache expiry is global. That is, any time you make a change to any class anywhere, the entire VM's method caches get busted at the same time. This is why you'll frequently hear people saying that "calling Object#extend is bad".
Actually, it's not just Object#extend . Charlie Somerville put together what I believe to be an exhaustive list of things that clear MRI's method caches. Method cache busting is so pervasive that it's almost …

In Algorithm we learn some shocking facts (gambling in Casablanca?): for Performance Aware VM Consolidation
Average server utilization in many data centers is low, estimated between 5% and 15%. This is wasteful because an idle server often consumes more than 50% of peak power.
Surely that's just for old style datacenters? Nope. Indata centers, workloads that are consolidated use only 50% of the processor cores. Every other processor core is left unused simply to ensure that performance does not degrade.
…processor. I have a newer ARM-based Chromebook, but there is currently no ARM port of theVM. I used the 32-bit version of the and the 32-bit version of Dart Editor.
I'm pretty excited that this works because this is one of the few things that was preventing me from fully switching to a Chromebook Pixel !:) Now, all I need to do is get my hands on a
We were able to get it installed on aVM, but it does not pass all the unit tests. It fails on some tests with obscure errors that seem to indicate bugs in , e.g. errors in which Ruby cannot figure out where the exception came from.
We recommend sticking with 1.9.3 in the mean time until the next Ruby 2.0 patchlevel release.
