I had a situation where one docker image with a webserver was connecting to another docker image with a MySQL server. Now couple of other docker images were added to the server and this caused an IP change on the MySQL docker image. So I needed a way to check the New IP.
Used the following to get the IP of the docker image:
The automatic ISP DNS IP was faulty. Need to switch to another DNS server. Another problem was that Editing the resolv.conf would be overwritten.
Click on the Wi-fi button And select Network Connections:
Click on the Wifi Network you want to add the DNS addresses. From the resulting Dialogue box, click on the IPv4 Settings and add the Additional DNS servers e.g the OpenDNS IPs 188.8.131.52; 184.108.40.206 and then save:
Then Click on the Wi-Fi Icon and click on Network Settings. Then select the Preferences Icon (As shown in the screenshot below). Then Click on IPv4 and In the DNS Section Click on the Automatic ON button so that its OFF and then click Apply:
Network Preferences – IPv4 selection
Network Preferences – Save Changes
Finally turn of the Wifi and Turn it ON again and your changes should persist. You should be using the New DNS addresses IPs ONLY.
Research has it that a high % of users will drop a transaction if the webpage loads takes longer than 3 seconds. The distance between the user and the content is sometimes to blame.
Edge computing and caching is one of the methods content providers are employing in order to serve their users almost as if they were in the same location. At its simplest definition, it the process by which content is stored in a server that is closest to the user.
This would explain why Videos on youtube for example, load faster than those of other content providers i.e. if you are located near one of Google’s Edge Point of Presence.
Akamai’s Edge Server and Content Caching are also major players in this domain. They claim to have deployments in almost every part of the world.
Carbon60 say that they also haven’t been left behind in this race.
