Create resilient AccessProfiles for IBM Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On
The state machine editor in the AccessStudio advanced mode is a flexible tool for creating advanced AccessProfiles for IBM Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On (ISAM ESSO). The profiles enable developers to implement single sign-on (SSO) automation workflows for a wide variety of applications. Most applications have similar design rules for pages flows related to sign-on automation, such as login or change password pages. So it makes sense to check all sign-on automation workflows that are based on these common rules. This best practices guide introduces a set of common page flow diagrams and design rules to consider to ensure that your advanced AccessProfile state machine covers all sign-on automation workflows.

Visualize in-browser performance data with R and JavaScript using the W3C performance object
When looking at web performance metrics, the ideal numbers to focus on are real user metrics harvested from your own users. The most popular method is to consume your machine data with a tool such as Splunk, which enables you to analyze and visualize your access and error logs. With these tools you can glean some aspects of performance data, such as file I/O times for reading assets and access times of API requests. However, you are still left to extrapolate client-side performance data, put beacon calls at certain high-level checkpoints, or just run synthetic testing with tools like WebPagetest. Now, the W3C has standardized an API that makes it possible to capture and report out in-browser performance data by using the Performance object, an object native to the Windows object in all modern browsers.

Linux on 4 KB sector disks: Practical advice
Advanced Format disks use 4,096-byte sectors rather than the more common 512-byte sectors. This change is masked by firmware that breaks the 4,096-byte physical sectors into 512-byte logical sectors for the benefit of the operating system, but the use of larger physical sectors has implications for disk layout and system performance. This article examines these implications, including benchmark tests illustrating the likely real-world effects on some common Linux file systems. As Advanced Format disks have become the norm, understanding how to cope with these disks is a vital skill for anyone who wants to avoid serious performance penalties associated with suboptimal configuration.
