  • Axel --max-speed=x, -s x You can specify a speed (bytes per second) here and Axel will try to keep the average speed around this speed. Useful if you don?t want the program to suck up all of your bandwidth.

  • We don't use CPU scaling, but just in case you do, there is something interesting to note. If you look at the /proc/cpuinfo, the speed listed is current running speed of the processors and not the real speed of the chip. Show Sample Output

    awk -F": " '/cpu MHz\ */ { print "Processor (or core) running speed is: " $2 }' /proc/cpuinfo ; dmidecode | awk -F": " '/Current Speed/ { print "Processor real speed is: " $2 }'

  • Very useful for test a script. After launch this command, you only have to press ENTER for launch your script again. I work with screen and tape ENTER instead of '!!'+ENTER If you break your script with CTRL-C, it will wait for press ENTER and will re-launch You can write like it : while read -p "Press ENTER" ; do python ; done

    while read ; do python <script> ; done

What Others Think

Similarly for Firefox (best with Firefox closed): find ~/.mozilla/firefox/ -iname '*.sqlite' -execdir sqlite3 {} 'VACUUM;' \; More generally: vacuumDB () { if file -p "$1" | grep -iF 'sqlite 3' >/dev/null; then sqlite3 "$1" 'VACUUM;'; fi }
