How to check which process is causing IO wait

The ‘wa’ state in `top` can indicate an IO wait, but to figure out what’s causing the IO wait try this command:

# ps aux | awk '$8 ~ /D/  { print $0 }' | less

You can read more here. Thanks to bsandro on #lobsters.
According to `man top`:

The status of the task can be one of:
  D = uninterruptible sleep
  I = idle
  R = running
  S = sleeping
  T = stopped by job control signal
  t = stopped by debugger during trace
  Z = zombie

Install Docker Engine on Ubuntu

Reading about how to Install Docker Engine on Ubuntu. I suppose it’s about time.

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
 1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
 2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
 3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
 4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.

To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
 $ docker run -it ubuntu bash

InfoWorld articles

Today I discovered InfoWorld with these articles:

And a bonus article from Spotify: How We Use Golden Paths to Solve Fragmentation in Our Software Ecosystem .
Also, I should note, I very much like the InfoWorld URL format: — this is the same URL structure I use in my own designs.
