  Set PHP session timeout


There are many different discussions about PHP sessions. We may often face some weird issues while handling PHP sessions. Sometimes session is expired earlier than expected. Or sometimes the session is not expired. This introduces many confusions. Today we discuss how to set PHP session timeout correctly today. In php.ini, there are three key parameters which will affect the session timeout. session.gc_maxlifetime, session.gc_probability and session.gc_divisor. session.gc_maxlifetime defined the...

  JavaScript tutorial - Creating time delays


There are two ways of creating time delays with JavaScript. The first is more simple and will simply wait for a specified amount of time before executing a function. The second does the same but will repeatedly execute the function. Note, many browsers have a minimum delay length of between 25 and 75 ms, with some of the fastest browsers having a minimum delay of about 3 ms. If a shorter delay is specified, the actual delay will be the minimum delay length. Even with higher numbers, the delay i...

  What you may not know about PHP session


When we access one website, the site usually should have a mechanism to keep track of the status of the user on the site.

Today we will talk about session, when creating a session, we need to keep track of many data, besides user data, we also need to tell the server what is the timeout of the session so that we can garbage collect the session data which should not be stored a...

  Some tricks on PHP session


1. Session timeout problem There is a nuance we found with session timing out although the user is still active in the session.  The problem has to do with never modifying the session variable. The GC will clear the session data files based on their last modification time.  Thus if you never modify the session, you simply read from it, then the GC will eventually clean up. To prevent this you need to ensure that your session is modified within the GC delete time.  You can accomp...

  XMLHttpRequest Level 2 user guide


XMLHttpRequest is a web browser interface, it makes it possible for JavaScript doing HTTP(s) communication. Microsoft's IE5 first introduced XMLHttpRequest, because it's so useful that many other browsers also adopted this. AJAX came to the front since. However, this interface is not standardized, implementation among different browsers is different, with the emerging of HTML5, W3C is considering to standardize this interface. In February 2008, they proposed a XMLHttpRequest Level 2 draft. This ...

  Server monitoring shell scripts


There are many open source server monitoring software such as cacti and nagios. Besides these, can we write our own shell scripts to monitor them? The shell scripts written by ourselves can fulfill our special requirements better and have a more detailed coverage. Below are some commonly used shell scripts used by Evangelist, an Oracle DBA. 1. Check network gateway traffic #!/bin/bash #network #Mike.Xu while : ; do time='date +%m"-"%d" "%k":"%M' day='date +%m"-"%d' rx_before='...

  Why I love everything you hate about Java


If you’re one of those hipster programmers who loves Clojure, Ruby, Scala, Erlang, or whatever, you probably deeply loathe Java and all of its giant configuration files and bloated APIs of AbstractFactoryFactoryInterfaces. I used to hate all that stuff too. But you know what? After working for all these months on these huge pieces of Twitter infrastructure I’ve started to love the AbstractFactoryFactories. Let me explain why. Consider this little Scala program. It uses “futures”, w...

  Best practices of front end optimization


1. Use DocumentFragment or innerHTML to replace complex elements insertion DOM operation on browser is expensive. Although browser performance is improved much, multiple DOM elements insertion is still expensive and will affect the page load speed. Assume we have an ul element on our page, we now want to retrieve a JSON list using AJAX and then update the ul using JavaScript. Usually we may write it as : var list = document.querySelector('ul'); ajaxResult.items.forEach(function(item) { // ...

  Workaround size limit of phpMyAdmin import sql file


When doing website development with MySQL, we often need to do database backup and restore. For website, the data in database will grow quickly, so when we back up the database, the size of the generated sql file may be over 80MB which is the max allowed size when we want to import a sql file for restoring our database using phpMyAdmin. To workaround this limit, we need to review the documentation of phpMyAdmin. Fortunately, I found an online article written by David Pratt  which gave us a ...

  Python threads: communication and stopping


A very common doubt developers new to Python have is how to use its threads correctly. Specifically, a large amount of questions on StackOverflow show that people struggle most with two aspects: How to stop / kill a threadHow to safely pass data to a thread and back I already have a blog post touching on these issues right here, but I feel it’s too task-specific for sockets, and a more basic and general post would be appropriate. I assume the reader has a basic familiarity with Python thr...
