Windows 10 Release Information
Microsoft has updated its servicing model. The Semi-Annual Channel is a twice-per-year feature update release targeting March and September, and 18-month servicing timelines for each release. The Semi-Annual Channel replaces the Current Branch (CB) and Current Branch for Business (CBB) concepts starting July 2017 with Windows 10, version 1703. This page is designed to help you determine if your devices are up to date with the latest Windows 10 feature and quality updates and to plan deployment schedules.
With each Semi-Annual Channel release, we recommend beginning deployment right away to targeted devices and ramp up to full deployment at your discretion. This will enable you to gain access to new features, experiences, and integrated security as soon as possible. For more information, see the blog post and Quick guide to Windows as a service.
Windows 10, 8, 7, and Vista all support symbolic links, also known as symlinks, that point to a file or folder on your system.
Symbolic links are basically advanced shortcuts. Create a symbolic link to an individual file or folder, and that link will appear to be the same as the file or folder to Windows—even though it’s just a link pointing at the file or folder.
For example, let’s say you have a program that needs its files at C:\Program. You’d really like to store this directory at D:\Stuff, but the program requires that its files be at C:\Program. You could move the original directory from C:\Program to D:\Stuff, and then create a symbolic link at C:\Program pointing to D:\Stuff. When you relaunch the program, it will try to access its directory at C:\Program. Windows will automatically redirect it to D:\Stuff, and everything will just work as if it were in C:\Program.
Why the Performance Monitor?
When it comes to the subject of disk performance in Windows, the majority of questions can be quickly answered by Performance Monitor alone. Performance Monitor is very low overhead, does a great job with averages and can also capture and store data over long periods of time. It is an excellent choice to record a performance baseline and to troubleshoot.
For short in this text, we are going to call the Windows Performance Monitor by its nickname: Perfmon. The nickname comes from its executable file located at %systemroot%system32Perfmon.exe.
You can install packages using dpkg. dpkg is quite a useful command line tool. In addition to installing packages, dpkg also helps to remove packages and know the status of packages. While checking the status of packages using dpkg, you may come across the state rc.
Memory you have hot added in Linux guest virtual machines is not registered using the free or top commands.
This issue occurs when Linux requires manual intervention to expose the newly added memory in the guest. The process is called setting the memory to online.
To resolve this issue, set the memory online in RHEL/CentOS, and Ubuntu/Debian.
