The Killing: best TV series ever

Well, I watched all famous TV series like Lost, Prison Break, Homeland, Misfits, Luther, Flash Forward or Dexter. I even watched probably best feat called Breaking Bad so far. I have to say that The Killing seems to be best of all after I watched all 2x13 parts. I deliberately waited five days with final rating after the final episode.

The simple story about murdered young girl called Rosie exceeds into political drama regarding major elections. There is ton of unsual twists (greetings to It Crowds :-). Just right amount information about main characters, nice camera and many thrilling moments using exciting ends in some episodes. And significant point which many TV series was not able to handle: it's short enough as it should be, no useless lenghtening - the worst problem we could see in Lost.

Http and TCP Load Balancing with Kubernetes

Kubernetes allows to manage large clusters which are composed of docker containers. And where is large computation power there is large amount of data throughput. However, there is still a need to spread the data throughput so it can reach and utilize particular docker container(s). This is called load balancingKubernetes supports two basic forms of load balancing. Internal among docker containers themselves and external for clients which call you application from outside environment - just users.


Internal Load Balancing with Kubernetes Usual approach during the modeling of an application in kubernetes is to provide domain models for pods, replications controllers and services. Look at the great documentation if you are not aware of all these principles.

For simplification, pod is a set of docker containers which are always located on the same node. Replication controller allows and guarantees scalability. The last but not least is the service which hides all instances of pods - cre…

Validating nginx config file using docker approach

I try to setup nginx as a load balancer. The configuration is just a file with a lot of constrains so I need a validation. There is no online validation service, as e.g. CoreOS has, and I don't want to install nginx on my laptop as I work on a distributed app.

Docker is right approach for me. Let say I have following config:


In short, I'm going to pass nginx config to running nginx instance and look to the logs.

Put you nginx.config to the temp and start the docker image:

sudo docker run --name nginx -v /tmp/nginx.config:/etc/nginx/nginx.conf:ro -d nginx It uses volume mapping so the command just starts a new docker container and mounts a local /tmp/nginx.config to the given in-container path. You can obviously change the volume path to your personal path. Is it working or not? Look at logs.

sudo docker logs nginx If there is no entry, your file is fine. In the case of an error, you can see something like this:
