In /usr/bin I see: java javaws jexec No javac so probably no JDK installed. The box is Debian “Squeeze” with the following: java -version java version […]

But even with the configuration mentioned above I’m still able to login with a user which is not root only with a password. Version of sshd is: OpenSSH_5.5p1 Debian-6+squeeze2, OpenSSL 0.9.8o 01 Jun […]

How important is it to keep size of log files down?

I have a LAMP server where logrotate does its job once per week, and I notice some logs tend to get quite large. For example, the apache access-log is 73MB. Is it better that I tell logrotate to rotate it daily? Does size matter for the performance (cpu load) or are we talking marginal differences (daily vs weekly rotation)? The file system is ext3. Asked by charly gordon I’ve never seen any apache webserver whose […]

How does ulimit come into effect on the fly?

I have added 2 lines in /etc/security/limits.confmyuser soft nofile 16384 myuser hard nofile 16384 …which has no effect: su – sysctl -p su myuser ulimit -n 1024 It is important that this comes into effect without the user having to log in first, i.e. as root I start a script on his behalf. Asked by recalcitrant Add this to /etc/security/limits.conf: * soft nofile 16384 * hard nofile 16384 And add something like this to /etc/profile […]

How to use a custom status command for a service in puppet?

I am using debian squeeze with PostgreSQL 9.1 from backports. Puppet has version 2.7.14. Unfortunatly the init script returns the wrong exit code for status. Therefore I wrote a custom status command to detect whether postgresql is running or not. service { ‘postgresql': ensure => running, enable => true, hasstatus => false, hasrestart => true, status => “pg_lsclusters -h | awk ‘BEGIN {rc=0} {if ($4 != \”online\”) rc=3} END { exit rc }'”, provider => […]
