When I tell people we use "perlbal" I get funny looks. A book would
really help with legitimacy.
I'd like to see a section that shows how/where perlbal should plugin
to my infrastructure. After I read it I'd like to know:
How to spec a Perlbal server
How many processes per server (SMP)
How many servers
Should I run perlbal on the same server as my squids or apaches?
Is perlbal right for me? (wikipedia tried it, but it wasn't a good
fit for them).
Maybe it'd be best to explain all these things through case studies?
People keep asking me why there is no access/error log. I point them
to the /var/log/messages, but that only answers so much.
Raw benchmarks would be nice, too. They would go along great with
Mike's suggestion of comparing Perlbal to other servers.
btw, I sent you an email asking for the slides from the MogileFS
summit. Can you send them to me?
