6 Best Office Suites for Linux in 2021

Mon, 09/27/2021 - 13:30

Learn How to Use Linux ‘sed’ Commands

Mon, 09/27/2021 - 10:00

The sed command is a powerful and useful tool in Unix/Linux for editing the content (files) line by line, including inserts, appends, changes, and deletes. Furthermore, it supports regular expressions, so it can match complex patterns. Commonly it is used to find and replace the strings in files like configuration files, bash scripts, SQL files, etc.

The sed commands are mostly abstracted from the ‘ed’ text editor. The sed command allows us to quickly remove or replace the content without having to open a file. “For editing purposes, we have several text editors available in Linux, such as vi, emacs, vim, and jed. However, the utility will function with no limitations on any standard Unix or Linux terminal. Once you understand how syntax patterns work, it is pretty easy to use sed in Linux. This is why most experienced Linux users use the sed command since it allows them to perform powerful tasks, like substitute, insert, or delete text in a file or stream programmatically.

13 top Commands in Linux (Monitor Linux Server Processes)

Sat, 09/25/2021 - 17:00

The Linux OS offers several commands that can be used to monitor a running process, but for checking dynamic real-time processes, we can use a command called top. This tool enables System Administrators to determine how fully real-time processes are utilized by their current system.

With every Linux distribution, the top utility comes pre-installed. We can utilize the interactive command to see the summary of the current system stats, and also customize the list of processes, threads, and many other features. This guide shows you how to use the top with various options to view all the current system activities. System administrators will be able to manage system resources as well as optimize their hardware utilization by analyzing uptime, CPU usage, memory utilization, swap space usage, load average, and all the other processes that are running on their system to ascertain how much real-time processing is being used.
