Launch deamon process with Jenkins

A quick post to share with you how to launch a deamon process – like a webserver :) – with jenkins on linux.


inside jenkins script will not work, trust me, jenkins will start your app and stop it.

If you want to do this you must force jenkins to ‘forget’ your process by overriding the BUILD_ID variable before launching your app.

Otherwise you process will be killed when the jenkins script finish.



Free ssh client for blackberry OS 10 and above

Few months ago i was looking for a ssh client for my Blackberry Q10.

Infortunalty nothing that fits my needs was on the Blackberry app store (Blackberry World).

Then i remembered that i have a Blackberry with an OS version higher than 10.2.1 so i can run Android applications :)

Let me introduce to you JuiceSSH which can :

  • Save your credentials of connections (server/user/password).
  • With a well designed virtual keyboard with strategic keys like ‘|’, ‘escape’, etc…

It become a pleasure to write command and script with the blackberry physical keyboard 😉

How much RAM is used on linux

Hello all,

Last time i was RAM-cleaning a VM linux server by kill -9 bunch of processes, then i was curious to know how much RAM is available.
Naturally, i thinked of top command:

[hichame@server app]$ top
top - 16:16:59 up 19 days, 2:05, 2 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
Tasks: 186 total, 1 running, 185 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 11.4%us, 1.4%sy, 0.0%ni, 86.8%id, 0.3%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st
Mem: 16336460k total, 11442068k used, 4894392k free, 516964k buffers
Swap: 0k total, 0k used, 0k free, 8449812k cached

10639 hichame 20 0 19288 1292 916 R 1.9 0.0 0:00.01 top
1 root 20 0 21444 1224 888 S 0.0 0.0 0:01.49 init

Naturally, i screamed WTF!!! 11442068k of 16336460k is used, near 70% of all my beautiful RAM is used after my wonderfull RAM-cleaning.

Calm down and let’s focus on this line Mem: 16336460k total, 11442068k used, 4894392k free, 516964k buffers and get some help with free linux command :

[hichame@server app]$ free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 16336460 11442068 4894392 0 516964 8449812
-/+ buffers/cache: 2475292 13861168
Swap: 0 0 0

Ahaa, the real available RAM is 13861168 ^_^
