The H looks
at the new and improved stuff
in the eighth update to Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5. "A little under five years since it was first released, Red Hat has provided customers with the eighth "minor release" of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5. Scalability improvements mean that rather than 128 cores, guests virtualised with KVM can now use up to 256 processor cores. Red Hat says it has improved support for clock and timer hardware in KVM guest systems. KVM guests will now boot more quickly and, thanks to updates to the real time clock (RTC) code, RHEL 6 guests running on RHEL 5 hosts will run faster. The Spice client now supports Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 3.0 and RHEL 6.2 hosts, enabling the remote desktop protocol to be used on wide area networks.
