00:00[~]warewolf tweaks /etc/sysctl.conf to enable ip_forwarding on boot
00:00<warewolf>there, openvpn all sexy beautiful.
00:00<@caker>warewolf: what game was that for?
00:00<warewolf>caker- btw, one of your nameservers appears to be broken
00:00<@caker>warewolf: hmm, know which?
00:00<warewolf>1 sec
00:01<warewolf>; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
00:01<warewolf>the first two
00:02<warewolf>just the 64. one
00:02<warewolf>eiter that or I have it firewalled out for some reason
00:02[~]warewolf checks iptables
00:02<@caker>I'm getting a timeout
00:03<warewolf>newp, appears to be broken
00:03<warewolf>and when that one is *first* in /etc/resolv.conf *all* dns lookups take an extra 3-5 seconds :(
00:03<warewolf>I just worked around the problem by setting up my own little caching nameserver
00:04<warewolf>bounced named?
00:04<@caker>yeah, for starters
00:04<@caker>tweaking nice settings now
00:04<warewolf>caker- the openvpn wasn't actually for a game, it was for privacy here at work
00:04<@caker>but it was using about 350M
00:05<warewolf>caker- in the future, when a named is taking up that much memory, next time have it dump it's internal named cache to disk -- you might have been getting pummled with dns poisioning attacks
00:05[~]warewolf rtfms for what signal to send named to do that
00:06<warewolf>rndc dumpdb
00:06<warewolf>that's what doe sit
00:06<warewolf>next time run rndc dumpdb then inspect named.dump
00:07<warewolf>caker- does that named do a lot of dynamic dns?
00:08<@caker>warewolf: primarily a resolver for TP nodes, also slave for
00:08<@caker>typically, the resolvers are VERY busy
00:08<@caker>might need to move it off this machine
00:09<warewolf>I was going to say, if it's doing dyndns that the way named works w/ updating zones is it creates a "journal" file -- which can grow over time (and cause named to suck up memory) if the server isn't bounced every once in a blue moon.

09:48<vk>ok, i'm finding a good linux host to host some of my customers, i want to confirm how linode is stable, and the speed of responce for a trouble.
09:49<vk>and guys, who are the people behind linode, 'caker' 'linbot' 'mikegrb'?
09:51<jams>vk when the problem is somthing that linode has control over the response time is extremely quick
09:54<shas>caker is the owner of the operation, mikegrb is another person at linode, linbot is a bot :P
09:55<shas>or should i say, a employee at linode
09:55<jams>linbot does all the work
09:55<shas>the amazing magical linbot

13:09<npmr>likewise, debian
13:31<gpd>anyone know how to crop a jpeg from the command line to specified boundaries... I'm sure imagemagick or netpbm can do it...
13:32<@mikegrb>yeah imagemagick
13:38<gpd> mogrify -crop 591x440+0+0 gpd101.jpg <-- seems to work... not sure why you need those +0+0 bits?

14:27|-|sqhub [] has joined #linode
14:28<sqhub>Just getting started on setting up my machine.. great web control interface! One question, "reboot" on machine seems to put it on powered down state requiring a boot from web panel. How can I reboot from cli?
14:29|-|FireSlash [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
14:29<@mikegrb>in the exmaples section there is a command you can use to reboot
14:29<@mikegrb>you can add that to an alias
14:30<@mikegrb>then if you setup ssh keys for lish access it is pretty transparent
14:31<sqhub>great, thanks mike.
14:31<@mikegrb>no problem
14:34<sqhub>Also, trying to setup rdns. I have an A record for "" that appears to have propogated thru my 2 DNS servers, but the rdns setup page is saying no match found. Is it known to be working at the moment? (or just wait longer for any dns propogation..)
14:34[~]mikegrb checks
14:36<@mikegrb>$ host
14:36<@mikegrb>Host not found.
