A few ideas: Include multiple documents in a single <add> operations. Note: there is no advantage in trying to post a huge number of docs in a single go. I’d suggest going no further than 10 (full-size docs) to 100 (tiny docs). Ensure you are not performing <commit/> until you need to see the updated [...]
If Windows Vista is running slowly, you can speed it up by disabling up to 20 of itâ€™s visual effects: like the transparent glass look, the way menus open or close, or whether shadows are displayed. To adjust the visual effects: 1.Â Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Performance Information and Tools 2.Â Select [...]
Replication enables data from one MySQL database server (called the master) to be replicated to one or more MySQL database servers (slaves). Replication is asynchronous – your replication slaves do not need to be connected permanently to receive updates from the master, which means that updates can occur over long-distance connections and even temporary solutions [...]
Although a PC used for writing doesn’t need to be a high-performance computer, its performance can be improved by a good partitioning scheme. The biggest boost comes from my Paging partition on drive H, which is found on my second physical disk. I use this partition to boost performance in the following ways: Move the [...]

Let say you are on an expensive satellite link that can barely provide enough bandwidth for your company’s Internet Access and you will want to do whatever you can to get as much as possible out of this link. Moreover, occassionally you loose power from the utility company, long enough for your UPS to run [...]
Every time a file is read from your Linux ext3 partition it writes back a attribute to the file detailing the last access time. There are very few programs that actually use this to operate and it slows everything down. Disabling atime and diratime on your Linux ext3 file systems can improve disk performance up [...]
RAID 1 is usually implemented as mirroring; a drive has its data duplicated on two different drives using either a hardware RAID controller or software (generally via the operating system). If either drive fails, the other continues to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced. Conceptually simple, RAID 1 is popular for those who require fault tolerance and don’t need top-notch read performance. A variant of RAID 1 is duplexing, which duplicates the controller card as well as the drive, providing tolerance against failures of either a drive or a controller. It is much less commonly seen than straight mirroring.
Here’s some scenario wherein your network card seems to fail. At times, it shows you statistics of sending but not receiving packets, or it is physically connected but show you that the linkis not present at all. If you are sure that it is not driver or cable issues related, below are pointers of changing [...]
