Submit Your Products for Review
Linux Journal readers want to hear about your Linux-related product. Therefore, we have created a review process that allows us to produce the unparalleled, objective reviews our readers have learned to expect from Linux Journal. When contacting us about a potential Linux Journal review, please keep in mind the following:
Do not send your product to Linux Journal without first sending the press kit. If we decide your product(s) would be of interest to our readers, we will contact you in order to receive a review copy.
We (or an appointed contractor) will be conducting the review as if we/they were the end-user. Therefore, please send us the product as if it were being sent to a customer, with all necessary documentation.
Please keep in mind that a magazine's production cycle is a long one. A product sent to us for review today may not appear in the magazine for 2-6 months.
Once your product review is published in Linux Journal, a PDF of the
review will be sent to you via e-mail. When sending us your press kit,
please provide us with the contact name and e-mail address to which
you would like the review sent.
Press kits may be sent to:

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
