How eBay’s Shopping Cart used compression techniques to solve network I/O bottlenecks
compressing data written to MongoDB using LZ4_HIGH --dropped oplog write rates from 150GB/hour to 11GB/hour. Snappy and Gzip didn't fare too well by comparison

REST Commander: Scalable Web Server Management and Monitoring
We dynamically monitor and manage a large and rapidly growing number of web servers deployed on our infrastructure and systems. However, existing tools present major challenges when making REST/SOAP calls with server-specific requests to a large number of web servers, and then performing aggregated analysis on the responses. We therefore developed REST Commander, a parallel asynchronous HTTP client as a service to monitor and manage web servers. REST Commander on a single server can send requests to thousands of servers with response aggregation in a matter of seconds. And yes, it is open-sourced at http://www.restcommander.com.

Feature highlights:

Click-to-run with zero installation;
Generic HTTP request template supporting variable-based replacement for sending server-specific requests;
Ability to send the same request to different servers, different requests to different servers, and different requests to the same server;
Maximum concurrency control (throttling) to accommodate server capacity;
Commander itself is also “as a service”: with its powerful REST API, you can define ad-hoc target servers, an HTTP request template, variable replacement, and a regular expression all in a single call. In addition, intuitive step-by-step wizards help you achieve the same functionality through a GUI.
