Reliance / Tata Photon / MTS Blaze data card ubuntu 11 India

I am traveling in india and brought my laptop with me as I was working for 2 weeks from here. My host OS is ubuntu 11 and it was a pain here to get it connected to internet. As I would be traveling so the best solution was to get a prepaid datacard as it will work everywhere in india. So I took my laptop to reliance world and it was fun to see the IT people struggling to find "My computer" in ubuntu. After 2 days they gave up and I anyways purchased the card to give it a try myself. It seems it was a 2 min job to connect it.

1) Go to System->Preferences->Network connections
2) Select "Mobile Broadband" and click Add
3) Follow the steps as shown in below screenshots




4) Enter the username/password provided by the provider

5)Thats it you are all set. Enjoy!!

  3. Yes, I felt the same problem which you faced. There is some problem in that OS, a few days back I had purchased a laptop and I chose Ubuntu as my OS from that day I have been facing the problem. Although after getting into your article I think my problem can't stay with me for a long. So thank you for everything.

Logging to Graphite monitoring tool from java

We use Graphite as a tool for monitoring some stats and watch trends. A requirement is to monitor impact of new releases as build is deployed to app nodes to see if things like
1) Has the memcache usage increased.
2) Has the no of Java exceptions went up.
3) Is the app using more tomcat threads.
Here is a screenshot

We changed the installer to log a deploy event when a new build is deployed. I wrote a simple spring bean to log graphite events using java. Logging to graphite is easy, all you need to do is open a socket and send lines of events.

So the intent is to upload a file using REST api and we need pass meta attributes in addition to uploading the file. Also the intent is to stream the file instead of first storing it on the local disk. Here is some sample code.
@Path("/upload-service") public class UploadService { @Context protected HttpServletResponse response; @Context protected HttpServletRequest request; @POST @Consumes(MediaType.MULTIPART_FORM_DATA) @Produces(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON) public String uploadFile(@PathParam("fileName") final String fileName, @FormDataParam("workgroupId") String workgroupId, @FormDataParam("userId") final int userId, @FormDataParam("content") final InputStream content) throws JSONException { //.......Upload the file to S3 or netapp or any storage service } }
