What value to set for MAX and MIN memory of SQL Server hosted on Bare Metal

Within AWS, Many of our Database servers are being migrated from EC2 Instance to Bare Metal. (Correct me, If I am wrong) In Bare metal, there are two memory limits available for the VM hosted on Bare metal.

  1. Current total memory that is assigned to the VM hosted on Bare metal. (105 as per below screenshot)
  2. Max memory that can be assigned to VM by the Bare metal host in case more memory is needed by VM (Max Memory Available). (128 GB as per below screenshot)

Memory Details

I have couple of questions in my mind:

  1. What MAX and MIN memory should be assigned to SQL Server? what things should be considered before setting the values?
  2. Will there be any other behavior change in SQL server because of bare metal?
  3. Will the dynamic memory allocation happen inside SQL Server as well? I mean that if the scenario occurs where SQL Server no longer need memory, will it release it back to VM and eventually back to host?? As we all know that SQL Server is a memory hog, it does not give memory back to OS unless there is memory pressure on the OS.

Any help/inputs would be appreciated.

mysql – WordPress website hosted on nginx ubuntu isn’t loading anymore

I just found out the WordPress website isn’t running anymore. When opening example.in, it simply shows the text Error establishing a database connection. The wp website is the folder /var/www/examplewp

I have other non-PHP based websites running smoothly on the same server. Even the xxx.example.in which is a non-php based website is working.

I tried opening files such as example.in/readmore.html or example.in/hello.txt which I created in the base folder of the WP and that’s working.

page speed – SEO – The competition's PageSpeed ​​hosted in google vs my GTmetrix

Good evening, I am really very disappointed and sad 🙁

I read some SEO articles …

I know that page speed is pretty critical if your competitors use excellent semantics.

So I wanted to try to optimize a site as much as possible …

But after a week I realized that reaching the 90 page speed score is impossible.

I also noted that my site


it's very fast actually (I'm not working on SEO semantics. I'm only working on speed and on a graphical level, colors like logos are wrong) GTmetrix evaluates it as AA, but it seems that following GTmetrix doesn't improve the PageSpeed ​​situation ..

My competitor takes the F-B assessment:



But it is hosted on Google and in page speed it has 90 points.

I wanted to know:

How critical is page speed to SEO indexing?

If it's so fundamental, why will there be unreachable pages hosted by Google, like my competitor?

If the page speed score doesn't matter, what are your stats? Or in general, what statistics should I observe?

I know that my competitors' website will be unreachable, also because it lacks aesthetics and is hosted by Google. But I wanted to know what to trust to feel protected by the page speed score.

Thank you

dns: Apache2 hosted site provides 400 bad requests when you navigate to http://www.example.org, but it works perfectly at http://example.org

So I have a website hosted at example.com and I want it to work with www.example.com.

My virtual host configuration looks like this:

Any advice?

How can I post a URL to a page hosted on Tumblr on Twitter without Twitter changing the link to point to the Tumblr app on mobile devices?

I am trying to post a Twitter post that includes the URL of a page hosted on the Tumblr platform. Something like this:

(My custom text here) https://plaintextoffenders.com/faq/devs

(That plaintextoffenders.com page is hosted on Tumblr.)

Once the Twitter post is published, the link to the page hosted on Tumblr works fine when viewed on my computer's Twitter.com web client.

However, when viewed on Twitter's native iPhone app, the link points to the Tumblr app on the App Store. There's no way a viewer will overlook that, and just watch the linked article.

The article displays fine, without App Store redirection, when the article URL is entered directly into Safari on the iPhone. Obviously, it is Twitter that is changing the link to Tumblr in the app store, and not a redirect on the site hosted by Tumblr.

I tried setting up a redirect to my target article using the tinyurl.com URL shortener, but Twitter still changed the link to point to the Tumblr app in the App Store when viewed in the Twitter client for iPhone.

Is there a way to compose my Twitter post so that the link works as expected when a customer reads the post in the native iPhone Twitter app?

seo – How to create video sitemap for my website when video is hosted on vimeo and embedded using?

I'd like to know what to do when creating a video sitemap when the embedded player is from Vimeo.

I am very new to the world of SEO and I am learning by doing and reading the official documentation.

For example, the video page on my website is https://bonsaiilabs.com/first-matching-dom/.

This has 1 video on one page. If you look at the source of the page, the relevant part is as follows.

Now, I read the documentation on the Google Video sitemap at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/80471 and the relevant tag you see is

However, I don't know how to use this tag, would the following work when creating the index?

I'm not sure if this is correct since the description of it says

A URL pointing to a player for a specific video. Usually, this is the information in the src element of an  tag. Must not be the same as the  URL. For YouTube video, this value is used rather than video:content_loc. This is the equivalent of VideoObject.embedUrl in structured data.
Must not be the same as the  URL.

Any help is really appreciated!
