The High-Performance High Availability Guide

This is a community documentation project aimed at collecting best practices for optimizing performance in high availability environments.

It's not sufficiently complete at this point to warrant an actual release, and we're still looking for contributions. If you can chip in providing a little insight on, say, tweaking your network, or your I/O subsystem, or your SAN, or your highly available application, we'd love to hear from you.


This documentation uses AsciiDoc, an intuitive text based documentation format that makes contributing easy, and that allows us to process sources into a variety of output formats.

It comes with a complete toolchain including a2x, which allows you to create XHTML, PDF, EPUB and other formats from the documentation. To build a PDF, for example, use this command:

a2x -f pdf hp-ha-guide.txt


Contributions (under CC-BY-SA 3.0 terms) and comments are very welcome.
