Version 5.1 of JMP contains a Linux port of the desktop statistical analysis tool. JMP 5.1 can be used to link statistical analysis dynamically with graphics for data visualization. Modeling options are included to help users find root causes of problems when there are multiple variables with nonlinear relationships, when no models are identified and when underlying factors are not measured in data. JMP includes Six Sigma, traditional and custom design of experiment (DOE) tools. New statistical platforms are available for version 5.1 that enable analysis of closely related data points as well as large amounts of data. JMP 5.1 supports Red Hat, Red Hat Advanced Server, SuSE, Mandrake and UnitedLinux distributions.

Group 1 Software announced upgrades to all of the products in its Centrus business geographics suite. Centrus products incorporate embeddable technology and a wide array of third-party data sources to solve operational problems in which location is critical. The Centrus GeoStan system, which corrects and standardizes address data with spatial information, now outputs vendor segment identifiers linked to data from leading vendors. It also outputs block suffixes using the US Census Bureau's TIGER 2002 data. Centrus AddressBroker has been architecturally improved to handle running on multiprocessor Linux machines. In addition, all Centrus products now run on Red Hat Linux.

AccuPoll released its new multilingual electronic voting system, which combines the transparency of touchscreen input with the documentation of a voter-verified, printed paper record. The voting station guides voters through the voting process, and votes are confirmed with an on-screen acknowledgement and a paper Proof of Vote printed by the voting station. Once the vote is cast, the AccuPoll system provides an independent, voter-verified audit trail that is recorded simultaneously in multiple locations in both paper and electronic formats. The AccuPoll system meets the requirements of the Help America Vote Act of 2002, as well as accessibility requirements for disabled voters. AccuPoll runs on nonproprietary hardware and open-source software.

LynuxWorks now is offering a VxWorks Compatibility Layer package to help streamline the porting of VxWorks code to its LynxOS real-time operating system (RTOS). Through the use of this package, applications originally written for VxWorks' flat-memory model can be used with LynxOS, a multithreaded, POSIX-compliant RTOS. The VxWorks Compatibility Layer maintains separate name spaces under LynxOS by allowing multiple virtual VxWorks environments to run simultaneously when required. The VxWorks porting kit also provides recommendations for identifying certain types of code that may require special attention. An extensive list of supported VxWorks calls and limitations on their use also is provided.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
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
