H-Sphere VPS 1.1

02 Dec 2003

Features:

1) New "virtual root" - unbreakable "jail" for virtual servers to improve VPS reliability;
2) Support for mounting inside VPS (nfs, smbfs filesystems);
Restrictions:
- NFS shared directories (specified in /etc/exports) on VPS host server cannot be mounted on virtual servers;
- sharing NFS directories is not supported on virtual servers;

3) Completely separate sockets to improve network performance;
4) New limits on tcp established connections and bind ports.
5) Support for up to 16 virtual ethernet devices per VPS, and up to 16 IPs per each virtual ethernet device;
6) Groups/lists of packages for additional services/tools:
- gcc - cc and gcc GNU compilers;
- http - Web server;
- MySQL, PostgreSQL - database servers;
- php - HTML-embedded scripting language;
- sendmail - Mail Transport Agent;
- up2date - The RedHat Update Agent;
- samba - to allow access of SMB shares.
7) Wizards for custom package groups/lists.
8) Tools to install packages to VPS(s).

Bugfixes:

1) Kernel deadlock on ext3 filesystem on high system load;
2) Quota inode statistics.

Recomendations:

1) In this version of FreeVPS kernel, it is not recommended to decrease Memory Limit without restarting VPS. Decreasing memory limits "on the fly" reduces new processes not being started. So you need to stop/suspend VPS, decrease Memory Limit, start VPS (resume if suspended);
2) It is recommended to turn off Memory Limit (set Memory Limit to 0) in VPS with high load. Then you will be able to run processes that require a lot of virtual memory (for example, Java processes);
