Modifying Odoo Menu
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 29, 2021 last modified Aug 29, 2021 01:45 PM — filed under: , ,
An annoying issue with Odoo (Community Edition) (in all versions) is that the Odoo menu (back end) is out of order. Here are the steps to put it in the desired order.

This is one of many postings about observations of an organization "doing it wrong" when it comes to projects, with some suggestions on how such a situation can be improved.
CollectionSpace Catalog Server Automated Server stop and start script for systemd
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2021
This is not elegant but it works for our development CollectionSpace Catalog server. A more refined version will be setup for the production environment later as we learn more about Cspace. This is specific to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Jitsi Architecture Variants
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 10, 2021 last modified Jul 13, 2021 08:01 AM — filed under: ,
Due to Jitsi’s modular, opensource, and highly configurable nature, there are many different architecture variations available when deploying a Jitsi ecosystem. This posting attempts to summarize, some more theoretical for the sake of discussion and analysis, a wide range of variants to consider for different implementations. Which Jitsi Architecture Variant to choose is based on each individual's specific scope and budget. Each successive variation tends to be more complicated than the prior variant. Note that these are NOT Jitsi official variations or terminology. These variation distinctions were created by Hawke Robinson as an attempt to bring some order to the many different potential approaches, and increase clarity when considering scalability, features, and budget constraints.

Critical Thinking About Microservices vs. Bandwagoneering - The Latest Buzzword Bingo: Microservices, Containerization, etc.
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 03, 2021 last modified Nov 23, 2021 01:18 PM — filed under:
Every profession is rife with buzzwords, and tech is replete with them. The specific details change, though the basics remain the same, and often recycle old-as-new every 20 years or so. This posting discusses the current bandwagon buzzwords about old-is-new microservices and monoliths primarily, though with some ancillary mentions regarding containerization, and more on Jitsi.
Trying to run multiple selenium 3 chrome driver nodes per AWS spot instance: goal 5k users minimum
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 02, 2021 last modified Jun 03, 2021 04:11 AM
I am tasked with extensive load testing of Jitsi and related components. There have been a number of challenges just getting the tests to work on the scale needed (minimum 5k users, preferably 20k, but that can be extrapolated from the 5k). But just trying to get to 5k continues to be a challenge due being back in the 1970s and the popularity of "the cloud". I once again have to deal with the equivalent of the IBM engineers and begging for resource access to do my job... Anyway, here are updates on how it is going...
At 2,000 and climbing! [SOLVED] Standalone all-in-one Jitsi server max capacity 600 users, no matter how much hardware (at least in AWS)
by Hawke Robinson published May 24, 2021 last modified Oct 28, 2021 11:10 AM
I am working on a very extensive load-testing for capacity planning project analyzing Jitsi and various related components in educational and other settings, for my current employer. In the current load-testing I have hit a hard limit around 600-650 users for a default-install standalone all-in-one Jitsi server. This is not expected behavior. I am hoping the JItsi community can help determine if it is as simple as a configuration tweak, or if it is a more serious bug.
At 2,000 and climbing - Success Setting Up Environment for Load-testing AWS Jitsi 1000 Video Users - Onward to 5000+ - However Jitsi fails at 650 users standalone all-in-one
by Hawke Robinson published May 20, 2021 last modified Jun 05, 2021 05:41 PM — filed under: , , , ,
I am working on a longitudinal series of projects that heavily involve the use of Jitsi, especially in educational settings. This is for large scale environments that have highly demanding loads, and are intended as Zoom replacements in the USA and worldwide. This is just one of a number of components. Today was great to finally reach the 1,000 simulated video users load test basic baseline. Next goal is 5,000+, and then adding in additional features and still trying to keep it all working on this scale (recordings, transcriptions, closed captioning, intricate chat options, complex permissions managements, file management, and much more). Great things happening!
