Permanent home-office for all? Not necessarily – Siobhan Morrin

For those who work in offices, the pandemic has completely changed the daily routine. The time and hassle saved without a commute in the WFH world has made a permanent change appealing, with several studies showing most people don’t want to return to the office full-time. However, many leaders say they want their staff to return to the workplace, and not necessarily because they don’t trust them. The serendipitous conversations and corridor catch-ups are too valuable to lose. And, research confirms, most people miss chatting to their colleagues too. (link)

 

Working with TC on Linux systems – dasblinkenlichten

With that out of the way – I wanted to spend some time in this post talking about the command line tool found on Linux systems called tc. We’ve talked about tc before when we discussed creating some network/traffic simulated topologies and it worked awesome for that use case. If you recall from that earlier post tc is short for Traffic Control and allows users to configure qdiscs. A qdisc is short for Queuing Discipline. I like to think of it as manipulating the Linux kernels packet scheduler.
