13:55<brupm>I will be running two linode instances and I am looking for a solution to replicate the data. I was thinking mysql master/slave
13:55<brupm>what do you guys think?
13:56<@caker>where the replication server is read-only, or for backups only, right?
13:57<@caker>in that case, go for it
13:58[~]tierra has heard horror stories with MySQL replication setups
14:16<fo0bar>FYI, if anyone missed out on linode's server sale, this seems to be a great deal: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=230203808628
14:16<fo0bar>that's almost exactly the same configuration as the last generation we used to build at my company
14:16<fo0bar>even down to the aftermarket 3ware card
14:20<@caker>fo0bar: does Finnix have an included Xen kernel, or just support for running under Xen?
14:20<fo0bar>caker: theoretical support, no kernel. it was too much of a pain building xen kernels for me
14:20<fo0bar>IE, if it detects it's running under xenU, it'll set up a single console on tty1
14:21<fo0bar>xen0 should boot like normal

14:22<fo0bar>well, finnix is fully automatic block-device wise, so it should find that
14:22<@mikegrb>/should/
14:23<fo0bar>but the console would be a problem
14:23<fo0bar>I believe it looks under /sys/block
14:24<fo0bar>but my finnix dev machines are powered off at home right now, as a power outage hit just as I was leaving for work
14:24<fo0bar>so I just shut everything down

16:52<Rashomon>Hi all, I'm looking to get myself a new hosting service. You name came up in the TextMate channel on freenode. I'd like to get a link to a speed-test binary and also I noticed you have 3 datacenters and I'd be very happy if you could provide me with three IP's (on from each) so that I could check the ping from here (Sweden) to you.
16:52<Bdragon>http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2636
16:53<Rashomon>thanks!
16:54<Toba>my server is in the dallas datacenter
16:54<Toba>feel free to ping at 67.18.187.24
16:54<Rashomon>is the http://host76.fremont.linode.com/Tailing-Aaron.mov usually slow?
16:54<Toba>don't know about the speed test.
16:54<Rashomon>(as found in the forum above)
16:54<Rashomon>31 kb/s
16:55<Toba>I'm pulling 880 kB/s off that
16:55<Rashomon>I have a 100 mbit fiber line at home
16:55<Toba>from another fast box
16:55<anderiv>Rashomon: I'm currently showing 850 on that file.
16:55<Toba>it may be that the international routing is not optimal
16:55<Rashomon>arr
16:55<exor674>I'm averaging 75-102
16:55<Toba>it's very good within the US, I havne't tested external
16:55<Toba>exor674: is that limited by your home line?

16:56<exor674>and I'm watching a streaming video too so
16:56<Rashomon>1.5 MB/s
16:56<Rashomon>1.8 even
16:56<Toba>yeah there are good pipes
16:56<Toba>but it varies because you are sharing the network with other vpses
16:57<Rashomon>yeah of course
16:57<Rashomon>atlanta gave me 550 kb/s
16:58<Toba>I skipped the atlanta datacenter because it blocks irc
16:58<scorche|w>i usually get around 2MB/s from mirrors.kernel.org (in dallas)
16:58<Bdragon>Could have a poor path at the moment I suppose
16:58<Toba>mirrors.kernel.org is a linode?!
16:58<Toba>I doubt it...
16:58<Bdragon>no, it's at the same datacenter though
16:58<Bdragon>(IIRC)
16:58<Toba>oh cool.
16:58<Rashomon>so dallas should be the place to be then. could it differ amongst those three (in the forums) what kinda server theyre on? I'm looking at the student priced Linode 300.
16:59<Toba>I'm on a linode 300, myself
16:59<scorche|w>Bdragon: oh?...that explains it
16:59<Toba>I rsynced a few gigs off my old server quite quickly to it
16:59<Rashomon>Toba: ping to Dallas is 140 ms, which is to be excpected overseas
16:59<@caker>Rashomon: all the servers are more or les the same, and less than a year old
17:00<mwalling_>scorche|w: well, i get really good numbers from dallas to stuff outside the dc, so you're still right :)
17:00<scorche|w>either way, it is great when update time comes :)
17:00<mwalling_>agreed
17:01<mwalling_>from aquilla's www server i was pulling 1.75-2MB/s
17:01<Rashomon>caker: it seems though that the pipes overseas are better on the Dallas front, is that your opinion too (you are an ch-op herte so I take it you work for Linode)?
17:01<TJF>caker pwns linode
17:02<@caker>IMO, they're all just as good
17:02<@tasaro>All three locations are usually ...
17:02<@tasaro>what caker said
17:02<Bdragon>All three are great locations, yeah
17:02<Rashomon>okay, so ther's some speed problem at the other two at the moment then I take it
17:02<Rashomon>(overseas atleast)
17:04<TJF>Rashomon: is there a big difference on your tests?
17:04<Toba>he caker, can you ask the forum software to resent my cofirm mail for username eastein?
17:04<Bdragon>Overseas routing seems to be especially turbulent the last several months...
17:04<Toba>I sort of broke my smtp server before signing up... just fixed it
17:04|-|brupm [~bruno@69.25.2.66] has joined #linode
17:05<Rashomon>TJF: A lot! Dallas gave me around 1.7 MB/s, Atlanta 550 kb/s and Fremont gave me 31 kb/s
17:05<@caker>Toba: user activated
17:05<Toba>thanks
17:05<brupm>can I clone one linode image to another in a different datacenter?
17:05<@caker>brupm: yes
17:05<@caker>it'll take a while, but it works.
17:05<brupm>are there 300 available in Texas?
17:06<@caker>yes
17:06<Rashomon>Is it possible to set up a test vps?
17:06<scorche|w>Rashomon: isnt that what the 300 is? ;)
17:06<brupm>I want to have 2 one in each datacenter for redundancy
17:06<Rashomon>Your server configuration options and installation options are pretty compelling
17:06<iggy>if you buy 1 now you only pay for the last 10 days in the month
17:07<brupm>thinking about setting mysql master on a 1200 and slave on a 300
17:07<@caker>Rashomon: yes, using the 7 day money back guarantee
17:07<Rashomon>scorche|w: well, I am a student so I'll have to take what I can afford
17:08<Rashomon>caker: are there nodes left in dallas for a 300?
17:08<@caker>Rashomon: yup
17:12<brupm>caker do you know if that would work? mysql master/slave on 2 diff nodes?
17:12<@caker>brupm: there's no reason why it wouldn't
17:13<brupm>awesome
17:14<Toba>when I initially signed up I was just doing it as a trial
17:14<Toba>but now I'm hooked
17:14<Rashomon>Toba: How long have you been with Linode?
17:14<brupm>I am on my 3rd node, going into 4th
17:14<Toba>2 days :p
17:14<brupm>I am addicted
17:14<Bdragon>I have two and manage two others
17:15<brupm>caker I am trying to register for a 300, do I need another username and password?
17:15<TJF>I can get 10Mb/sec from Atlanta (which is my bandwidth cap)
17:16<Bdragon>Yeah, each linode has its own username / password so you have a lish login for each one, etc
17:16<@tasaro>brupm: yes, for lish
17:16<@caker>brupm: yeah, for Lish access -- you just append 2 or something
17:16<@caker>*just can
17:16<TJF>Most I've ever seen from Atlanta was 50 Mb/sec
17:16<Bdragon>Heh, nice path
17:16<brupm>can you make sure this one goes to texas?
17:16<brupm>username will be uis2
17:17<iggy>I think you pick when you go through the wizard
17:17<@tasaro>you should get to choose
17:17<Bdragon>You'll get the option to choose if you do land in one you don't like
17:17<TJF>brupm: this chat room is logged and googled fyi
17:18<brupm>username is now: dskahdlKJDHLuhdlWXE
17:18<Bdragon>heh
17:18<TJF>hash(uuid(uptime))
17:18<iggy>they don't know what host it'll be on
17:19<TJF>[16:16] brupm: can you make sure this one goes to texas?
17:19<TJF>heh
17:19<brupm>?
17:19<TJF>i guess that still wouldn't say exactly which one tho
17:19<Bdragon>You get assigned at random, but get a choice to move if you didn't like where it landed
17:19<Bdragon>Assuming there are slots of that type available in other dcs

17:55<digitaljhelms>is it possible to add more storage space than what is listed under Extras on the member site?
17:59<Rashomon>allright. I'm on the track now ;)
17:59<Rashomon>Just waiting to get my application through
17:59<Bdragon>There's always the option of using a fuse mount or similar for stuff you don't *need* locally but still want available in your filesystem..
17:59<scorche|w>digitaljhelms: wow...that is a lot of money...i take it you already have a 1200?
18:00<digitaljhelms>no, but i don't see an option for upgrading plans through the member area of the site and i'm not scrapping this linode to rebuild a new one
18:01<Bdragon>That's what tickets are for ;)
18:01<digitaljhelms>wow, awesome answer...
18:02<Bdragon>But yeah, the usual way to upgrade plans is via a ticket
18:03<digitaljhelms>correct, but i'm not necessarily needing to upgrade plans, just storage space and only for a limited time
18:03<digitaljhelms>figured caker or mike might be able to give me a quick, dry answer
18:04<Bdragon>Then ask, if it's for a few days it's not impossible you can get loaned a chunk ;)
18:07<Rashomon>Is the user name and pssword I entered on the sign up page supposed to work as soon as payment has gone through?
18:09<Bdragon>Rashomon: I think one of the staff has to OK your account, usually only takes a few minutes for people who bother to show up in #linode first ;)
18:09<Rashomon>I just got it actiavated :)
18:10<Bdragon>Hee hee
18:10<Rashomon>What linux dist would you guys recommend for a 300? I need as much resources as I can have and I'm used to CentOS and Gentoo
18:12<JDLSpeedy>I use Gentoo myself Rashomon
18:13<Rashomon>JDLSpeedy: from what I saw on the linode page it took quite some HD-space though, why's that? I've always seen Gentoo as one of the Linux dists that use little resources
18:15<tpope>probably because you need a build environment installed
18:16<Rashomon>true
18:16<Bdragon>(not to mention compiling is a cpu / ram intensive process)
18:16<Rashomon>I think I'll go with CentOS 5
