it will give detailed output about Unity’s requirements, and if they are met, then your video card can run unity.
29) Explain how to enable startup sound in Ubuntu?
To enable startup sound
/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play—id= "desktop-login"—description= "play login sound"
You can also open it with shortcut key Ctrl+Alt+T.
30) What is the quickest way to open an Ubuntu terminal in a particular directory?
To open an Ubuntu terminal in a particular directory, you can use custom keyboard short cut.
To do that, in the command field of a new custom keyboard, type genome – terminal – – working – directory = /path/to/dir.
31) Explain how you can get the current color of the current screen on the Ubuntu desktop?
You can open the background image in The Gimp (image editor) and then use the dropper tool to select the color on a specific point. It gives you the RGB value of the color at that point.

To create launchers on a desktop in Ubuntu you can use
ALT+F2 then type ” gnome-desktop-item-edit –create-new~/desktop,” it will launch the old GUI dialog and create a launcher on your desktop
33) Explain what Memcached is?
Memcached is a free and open source, high-performance, distributed memory object caching system. The primary objective of Memcached is to enhance the response time for data that can otherwise be recovered or constructed from some other source or database. It is used to avoid the need to operate SQL database or another source repetitively to fetch data for a concurrent request.
Memcached can be used for
Memcache helps in
Drawback of Memcached is
34) Mention some important features of Memcached?
Important features of Memcached includes
35) Explain whether it is possible to share a single instance of a Memcache between multiple projects?
Yes, it is possible to share a single instance of Memcache between multiple projects. Memcache is a memory store space, and you can run memcache on one or more servers. You can also configure your client to speak to a particular set of instances. So, you can run two different Memcache processes on the same host and yet they are completely independent. Unless, if you have partitioned your data, then it becomes necessary to know from which instance to get the data from or to put into.
36) You are having multiple Memcache servers, in which one of the memcache servers fails, and it has your data, will it ever try to get key data from that one failed server?
The data in the failed server won’t get removed, but there is a provision for auto-failure, which you can configure for multiple nodes. Fail-over can be triggered during any socket or Memcached server level errors and not during standard client errors like adding an existing key, etc.
37) Explain how you can minimize the Memcached server outages?
38) Explain how you can update Memcached when data changes?
When data changes you can update Memcached by
39) Explain what Dogpile effect is? How can you prevent this effect?
Dogpile effect is referred to the event when a cache expires, and websites are hit by the multiple requests made by the client at the same time. This effect can be prevented by using a semaphore lock. In this system when value expires, the first process acquires the lock and starts generating new value.
40) Explain how Memcached should not be used?
41) When a server gets shut down does data stored in Memcached is still available?
Data stored in Memcached is not durable, so if a server is shut down or restarted, then all the data stored in Memcached is deleted.
42) Mention what the difference between Memcache and Memcached?
43) Explain Blue/Green Deployment Pattern
Blue/Green coloring pattern addresses the most important challenges faced during the automatic deployment process. In Blue/ Green Deployment approach, you need to ensure two identical production environment. However, only one among them is LIVE at any given point of time. The LIVE environment is called Blue environment.
When the team prepares the next release of their software, they conduct their final stage of testing in an environment which is known as Green environment. Once verified, the traffic is routed to the Green environment.
44) What are the containers?
Containers are from of lightweight virtualization. They offer isolation among processes.

50) Explain Pair Programming with reference to DevOps
Pair programming is an engineering practice of Extreme Programming Rules. In this method, two programmers work on the same system, on the same design/algorithm/code.
One programmer act as a “driver.” Other acts as an “observer” who continuously monitor the progress of a project to identify problems. The roles can be reversed at any point of time without any prior intimation.
