back to article Google: 'We'll track EVERY task on EVERY data center server'

Google has wired its worldwide fleet of servers up with monitoring technology that inspects every task running on every machine, and eventually hopes to use this data to selectively throttle or even kill processes that cause disruptions for other tasks running on the same CPU. The search giant gave details on how it had …

How is that fair

"and its contents will be of major interest to anyone running massive Linux-based infrastructure clouds."

So this won't be available for my Azure based solutions?

I don't think people who care about performance use Azure. Azure is a product for people who care about running legacy code.

Hi, Christian Berger,

It may also be the case that Azure is a product for people who do not care or do not realise that they are just sustaining legacy code practices for exclusive status quo interests, and that would/could extraordinarily render it enemy of the people code and that would not be a great development platform for any business?

Re: I ask myself

It sounds very interesting indeed, but yes, if the agent process is the one that fouls up I can see a problem when it tries to throttle itself.

Gee Thanks Google

Now, how do we

1) detect the presence of this Malware

2) get rid of it (or make it tell emit loads of porkies)

None of my customers would want this level of evilness on their servers.

Didn't we think the DPI was wrong? This is IMHO a million times worse.

Isn't something like this illegal in a lot of countries?

They're running it, on their servers against their processes...you wont see it, ever...unless you're part of a company with the same amount of worldwide data and data centres to manage...then you'd love it.

If you have gathered that this is "evil" and "Malware" then I suspect you don't actually have "customers" and instead are referring to your school-friends.

Imagine if you downloaded every video on youtube that there has ever been, at every resolution, then you would play that for free to however many people wanted it, at the best quality they could handle. And you did that globally, in every language, 24/7. Big ask of your datacentre. Google already do this of course, and it isn't even their core business. This is the kind of scale where you would want this.

Re: Gee Thanks Google

There is no mention of DPI in the article, and I don't see how monitoring the number of cycles a process uses on a CPU is anywhere near the same thing

Google Virtual Advertisements ..... Mad Men Style for Lady Luck's Smiles

Google has wired its worldwide fleet of servers up with monitoring technology that inspects every task running on every machine, and eventually hopes to use this data to selectively throttle or even kill processes that cause disruptions for other tasks running on the same CPU.

Google will need more than just Lady Luck rooting for IT if they want to be Control with Virtual Machinery.
