In my professional experience, I quite often have the opportunity to conduct recruitment, a part of which are questions related to Linux family systems. One of the standard questions is about an important, although in fact not saying much, system statistics, which is the average system load (abbreviated to loadavg). Unfortunately, it happens, also in the case of people with really impressive professional experience, that the candidate is not able to correctly describe and interpret the information ensuing from the load average.
Virtualization enables more effective use of existing hardware resources, generates large savings in server applications, allows building a flexible test environment and prepares for data transfer to the cloud. Therefore, today we are going to take a closer look at KVM, QEMU, libvirt and virt-manager.
The new version of EuroLinux brings a lot of changes compared to the previous one. In this article, we present the differences between these releases and describe the features exclusive for EuroLinux 8.

A typical module includes application packages, packages with application-specific dependency libraries, documentation packages, and packages with supporting tools. This feature is characteristic of all Linux systems in the Enterprise family, which includes, among others, distributions of Red Hat®, Oracle®, CentOS and naturally EuroLinux itself. Thanks to streams, modules provide the ability to separate the operating system life cycle from the life cycle of the applications used.

Finally, we will list and destroy the container with the images.
This article was created to familiarize readers with the issue of containerization. Apart from discussing the most important concepts, I will also present a historical outline. This will allow you to understand that containers, contrary to appearances, are not a new technology. Their present shape is a derivative of an idea that has literally evolved through generations of enthusiasts and creators of operating systems.
