Python Garbage Collection: What It Is and How It Works
Python is one of the most popular programming languages and its usage continues to grow. It ranked first in the TIOBE language of the year in 2022 and 2023 due to its growth rate. Python’s ease of use and large community have made it a popular fit for data analysis, web applications, and task automation.

SQL Performance Tuning: 7 Practical Tips for Developers
Being able to execute SQL performance tuning is a vital skill for software teams that rely on relational databases. Vital isn’t the only adjective that we can apply to it, though. Rare also comes to mind, unfortunately. Many software professionals think that they can just leave all the RDBMS settings as they came by default. They’re wrong. Often, the default settings your RDBMS comes configured with are far from being the optimal ones. Not optimizing such settings results in performance issues that you could easily avoid. How do we fix this problem? Simple: We equip developers with the knowledge they need to find slow SQL queries and do performance tuning in SQL Server. In this post refreshed by Gourav Bais on Stackify’s blog, we’ll give you seven tips to do just that.
What is IIS?
An IIS web server runs on the Microsoft .NET platform on the Windows OS. While it’s possible to run IIS on Linux and Macs using Mono, it’s not recommended and will likely be unstable. It’s versatile and stable, and it’s been widely used in production for many years. Version 10 is the most current. Once it’s installed you’ll see this welcome page in your browser. “Tervetuloa!” This post that Juan Reyes refreshed on Stackify’s blog can teach you all about IIS.
Syslog Tutorial: How It Works, Examples, Best Practices, and More
Syslog is a standard for sending and receiving notification messages–in a particular format–from various network devices. The messages include time stamps, event messages, severity, host IP addresses, diagnostics and more. In terms of its built-in severity level, it can communicate a range between level 0, an Emergency, level 5, a Warning, System Unstable, critical and level 6 and 7 which are Informational and Debugging.

An Introduction to ITSM Ticketing and Its Benefits
Having the relevant information at hand is vital: information that identifies the inquirer (either an existing or potential customer), the nature of their inquiry, the details of actions taken, and recommendations as to further action (for example, escalation). That is where IT Service Management (ITSM) comes in as a mechanism for managing customer interactions. This post from Iain Robertson on Wrangle’s blog explores what ITSM ticketing is, how it is selected and implemented, and its benefits to an organization adopting ITSM.
