Freenet Installation and Administration
Properly set up, a Freenet node shouldn't need any ongoing administration. However, there are a few automatable tasks that need to be done. First of all, the log files need to be rotated. Secondly, you'll want to restart the Freenet software periodically. Currently the disk (and I believe memory) usage of Freenet tends to balloon unless you restart your node periodically. Both rotating the log files, which requires restarting the node anyway, and restarting the node can be easily done with the script restart_script (shown in Listing 1). For your average node, restarting once a week should be fine.
IBM's JDK is probably the easiest JDK to install. It's precompiled and works, plus it's one of the faster JDKs out there. On the downside it's proprietary and requires registration to download. Both tarball and Red Hat RPMs are available at: www.ibm.com/java/jdk/linux130/index.html.
Kaffe, the OpenSource JDK, is another, more difficult option. You will have to compile in gmp support, something most distributions don't do in their Kaffe packages. A Debian package for Kaffe with gmp support is available from Mr. Bad's site, above. Otherwise, compile from anonymous CVS or a source package to which you apply the patch found in the Freenet README. Make sure you enable gmp support with the --enable-gmp option when you run ./configure.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
