I will continue to improve this in the near future StrayArch (talk) 11:30, 12 September 2015 (UTC)


Just some thoughts, I don't think Mesos should be categorized as Database Management System. Maybe a new category is needed? says, "Apache Big Data Software Stack", or more generaly, "Distributed Computing Framework." NonerKao (talk) 01:07, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

iirc, I only chose the current label because it was the most applicable. I do agree that any of the other choices mentioned are better. StrayArch (talk) 08:28, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
I agree that Category:Database management systems is not suitable here, but creating another category only for this article is useless. I propose moving it under Category:System administration instead. — Kynikos (talk) 01:00, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
I understand your point that a category for a single article is useless. Therefore, I check some other articles like Torque (resource management system in HPC) or Hadoop (Apache's MapReduce framwork). The former is now under Category:Networking, and the later is Category:Web server. I think both are kind of misplaced and can be rearrange under a new category "Distributed Computing Framework". It might be more clear and informative. --NonerKao (talk) 03:33, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
Sonuds good! What about a simpler "Distributed computing" name, and also move in there distcc, Slurm and Apache Spark? — Kynikos (talk) 03:51, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
I am totally agree with this. This general category will be helpful for both communities:
  1. For archers that need to work with distributed computing stuff, the category can gather similar topics, tools, troubleshootings(one really needs it A LOT).
  2. Distribued computing guys can easily find ArchWiki a good place to contribute or add native support.
Yeah, why not? --NonerKao (talk) 04:30, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
Ok, the idea is yours, so you can go ahead and show us your wiki skills by implementing it :) I'd say the new category can go under Category:Networking, and I'd still keep distcc listed under Category:Package development too. — Kynikos (talk) 07:31, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
I am not sure if I can do this well, but I'll do my best. Thanks!--NonerKao (talk) 07:52, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
