Jacksonville Linux Users' Group (JaxLUG)

The Jacksonville Linux Users' Group or JaxLUG is a diverse assembly of Linux users (beginners, casual desktop users, system administrators, developers, and IT professionals) that have a passion for supporting Linux and Free Open Source Software (FOSS) and live in or around Jacksonville, Florida metropolitan area. The JaxLUG, originally started by Daniel Stringfield in 1996, is led by Officers, who are elected annually.

To get to know us and become a member of the JaxLUG, please join our Mailing List and attend our Monthly Meetings. We also have a IRC channel #jaxlug @ freenode.net for real time access to JaxLUG members.

Topic: Parallelism with Tar & Make
Synopsis: Tar and Make are mainstay tools in an Linux users tool Kit. But what if you could speed them up? Make them faster? This talk will explain how to run these programs multi-threaded and show some benchmarks between single vs multi threading, the performance (speed and file size) between the GZIP, BZIP2, and LZMA and at each compression level, and the difference it can have on build speed of projects.
