UbuntuOne for online file storage in Ubuntu 9.04 or later 5

This is a screen shot showing the web interface tu UbuntuOne, the online file storage service for Ubuntu 9.04 or later. Once you install Ubuntu, you’ll get a 2Gb allowance for free, but this can be upgraded to 50Gb for $10. I first thought it was a great idea, being a Windows user, it seemed the easiest way to transfer files between both operating systems. As it happens, the web based interface is slow to use and there’s no windows client, so although the service is useful as a backup in linux, it’s not useful for transferring.

The other issue I have with the software is it’s status indicator. I set a folder of photos to synchronise, yet half an hour later they’re still not available. Looking at the transfer status, it simply shows ‘uploading’ with no mention of a time scale or upload rate.

    Hi Tom,If its a cluster, so I guess it will use 30 connections in total.But I hardly believe it would be enough only 30 connections to serve 300 concurrent users (even with DB pooling enabled as per this blog).You should check live DB connection usage (for example through WebLogic console dashboard or Enterprise Manager).Keep in mind, if requests are long – AM will keep connection longer, its why there will be peak times with higher connections usage.For 300 concurrent users, I would set Max DB connections size to be around 150 and monitor the use with WeLogic console to reduce this number if possible.Andrejus
