Adding and Removing Disks From VMware RHEL7 Guests Without Rebooting

In this post, I show you how to quickly add or delete a virtual disk in a running Red Hat or CentOS guest VM, running on VMware Workstation or VMware Player, without rebooting the guest.

Nesting RHEL7 KVM on VMware Workstation 12

In this post I discuss how to enable a Red Hat Enterprise Linux VM to use KVM when installed on top of VMware Workstation version 8 or later.

Korn Shell Launcher for Windows Subsystem for Linux

In this post, I show you how to create a Korn Shell launcher for the new Windows Subsystem for Linux.

What is /proc/config.gz?

Linux can store a gzip’ed copy of the kernel configuration file used to build the kernel in the kernel itself, and make it available to users via /proc/config.gz. This file is not always present in a Linux distribution. It is only present when /proc support is enabled and CONFIG_IKCONFIG and CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC are set to Y in the kernel configuration file. Most distributions do not enable it by default; instead they include the kernel configuration file under /boot. If in-kernel configuration support is built as a kernel module, then before you can use /proc/config.gz, the configs module needs to be loaded

Intel Processor Power Management

Modern Intel processor power management is based on a combination of two techniques: changing the CPU frequency (P-states) and using idling power states (C-states). A third technique, used on older processors but rarely on modern processors, is throttling of the CPU (T-states). P-states are voltage-frequency pairs that set the speed and power consumption of an Intel processor. When the operating voltage of the processor is lower, so is the power consumption. C-states are idle power saving states, in contrast to P-states, which are execution power saving states. During a P-state, the processor is still executing instructions, whereas during a C-state
