06:26-!-adityamenon [~adityamen@] has joined #linode
06:26<adityamenon>Good evening
06:26<adityamenon>I have an off-topic question...
06:27<adityamenon>With my current ISP, the speed is what is promised in my package when I select a local server on for pinging
06:27<Kyh>adityamenon: because the internet
06:27<adityamenon>but when I try it in a US or Europe based server, it's slower than half of that
06:28<Kyh>Yes. Internets
06:28<Kyh>That's how it works
06:28<adityamenon>I've verified with a friend in the US that the reverse is true for them too
06:28<Kyh>It's complicated
06:29<Peng>adityamenon: Linode cannot do anything about the performance of the companies who operate teh Internet.
06:29<adityamenon>so, my effective speed is less than half of what I bought, because most important websites are either in the US or Europe
06:30<adityamenon>I have not yet posed a question - and I'm neither asking to explain how it works nor am I asking Linode to fix it
06:30<Kyh>adityamenon: your ISP isn't (and can't) promising you a CIR of <x> mbit to some site half way around the world.
06:30<adityamenon>a less hostile response would have taken me less aback
06:30<adityamenon>All I'm asking is, is there a way the ISP can do something about this?
06:31-!-SelfishMan [] has joined #linode
06:31<Kyh>Not really
06:31<Peng>Not reall -- D: !
06:31<adityamenon>they have operations in many countries, so will maintaining a private network to "tunnel" traffic work?
06:31<Kyh>adityamenon: no
06:31<adityamenon>thanks, that is all I wanted to know
06:32<Peng>adityamenon: I mean, if one of their providers is really terrible, they can file support tickets or switch, but mostly, it's normal...

07:45<@Praefectus>shirred eggs?
07:45<meskarune>eggs that are baked in a ramikin
07:45<meskarune>with butter and cream and herbs
07:46<@Praefectus>ya, had to google
07:46<meskarune>soooooo good
07:46<meskarune>and easy to make
07:46<chesty>why would you make croissants yourself when you can buy them so cheaply?
07:47<meskarune>I did buy them
07:47<meskarune>croisants take too long to make, but i have made them by hand before
07:47<chesty>but you said you made them
07:47<meskarune>I made the eggs and toasted the croisants :P
07:47<meskarune>then melted brei in them
07:48<chesty>did you make the brie?
07:49<meskarune>I'm allergic to penicillin and brie is made with the same mold, so I had to cut off all the rind. hopefully I don't have an allergic reaction.
07:50<chesty>you're brave, why risk your life for cheese?
07:50<meskarune>because delicious
07:51<meskarune>I have drugs just in case too :P

07:54<praetorian>itgot too hppy
07:54<@akerl>chesty: They decided customers were lame
07:54<Peng>The joy ented.
07:54<praetorian>no peng, no
07:56<mwalling>chesty: people spent lotsa $ for a "lifetime" account. joyant decided it was the end of their lifetime.
07:57<praetorian>yeah was just reading that... they got 6 years of hosting for $500
07:57<@akerl>The fine print obviously included *(the lifetime of our gratitude for helping fund us not going out of business)
07:58<praetorian>so 72 months..
07:58<praetorian>they padi $7 a month for hosting for 6 years.
07:58<@akerl>praetorian: They didn't sign up to pay $7 a month for the next 6 years, though.
07:58<@akerl>They signed up for $500 for forever
07:58<@jchen>not terrible, but yeah
07:59<praetorian>akerl: i get that.

08:20<hawk>The service they ended, according to what people write anyway, was some web hosting service.
08:21<praetorian>that's how i read it as
08:21<praetorian>i was only comparing linode as that's what the other guy was going to
08:21-!-Plinker [] has joined #linode
08:22<meskarune>peng: allergy drugs. also : lol late reply
08:23<meskarune>google is always adding things then taking them away
08:23<meskarune>self hosted is the way to go if you want to keep yer stuff
08:23<meskarune>then lots of backups
08:25<chesty>i tried to backup my hard drive once, but I couldn't find the reverse switch
08:26<@Praefectus>chesty: you have to take it apart and spin the platters in reverse
08:26-!-Plinker__ [] has joined #linode
08:26<hawk>chesty: Ah, you just reverse the polarity of the power connector to do that, obviously
08:29-!-ashaffer [] has joined #linode
08:30<Peng>Google is taking their QR code generator away. :'(
08:30<Peng>meskarune: Self-host your own VPSes, too, eh? :P
08:31<meskarune>Peng: you actually can have your own server.... :P
08:32<meskarune>that runs xen or kms + lots'o virtual machines
08:33<meskarune>so much work though. you have to lock up the server for security, keep it updated, and have an ISP that doesn't suck :)
08:33<@Praefectus>thats what colo is for
08:33<Peng>But your data center could go out of business. Start your own.
08:33<@Praefectus>the isp part anyway
08:33-!-Plinker [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:34<hawk>You have to host your own internets, obviously, no one can be trusted to provide any kind of service
08:34<Peng>meskarune: Lots of backups? Definitely. Self-hosting everything, though? That probably adds up to more of a hassle than picking up the pieces from your backups when Service X goes bankrupt.
08:34*Peng shrugs
08:34<meskarune>I'd do it. buy up wires and have p2p internets
08:35<meskarune>people can go house to house and have a world wide lan
08:36<meskarune>Peng: idk, I had scuttle set up, so when delicious went bad, I still haz online bookmarks
08:36<meskarune>same for email with roundcube
08:37<Peng>Doesn't RoundCube get haxxed weekly?
08:37<meskarune>well, 90% of the time I use desktop clients. but I'm running on nonstandard ports and using ssl
08:37<meskarune>I'm not too too worried
08:37<Peng>... I guess it depends on how much effort self-hosting things is, and how much fun it is.
08:37<meskarune>super fun
08:38<meskarune>I'm still themeing my scuttle site. a lot of teh links are terrible looking

09:36<sgo00>Hi, Linode has six locations. If I plan to move from one location to another, can I simply move my existing vm to that location so that I don't lose anything from my current vm (like clone vm)? thanks.
09:37<@mikegrb>yes, the ip will change but everything else remains the same
09:37-!-vraa [] has joined #linode
09:37<Kunda>knife-linode ?
09:37<meskarune> sgo00 there might be a linode library article on migrations
09:38<sgo00>mikegrb, thanks a lot for the reply. how can I do that? any doc available online? thanks.
09:38<@mikegrb>requires a support ticket but it's quick and easy
09:39<rnowak>(knives are for chef)
09:39<praetorian>i don't remember mikegrb having these programmed responses.
09:39<rnowak>they installed a new machine learning kit
09:39<@mikegrb>! people still use slackware?!?!
09:39<meskarune>sgo00: we basically tell you migration is ready, then you click on a button and it goes automagically
09:40<praetorian>Kunda: i dont know. was just something on my 'linode' watch list. google it, seems ome automation lib

09:40<chesty>we? are you a spy meskarune ?
09:40<sgo00>oh. do you mean I can open a support ticket to ask moving my vm to another location. then the support team will do it for me. I just need to wait for it. is what I understand correct? thanks.
09:40-!-SelfishMan_ [] has joined #linode
09:41<meskarune>chesty: I work @ linode :P
09:41<praetorian>sgo00: they will give you a button you can click to move it. you can do it at your own time once that button is available
09:41<dzho>the IP will change, though, and that needs some user intervention, no?
09:41<praetorian>but yes, a support ticket to ask to move it
09:41<sgo00>praetorian, got it. thanks a lot.
09:42<io_>hi i have set max_connections to 12 in my.cnf but in htop i can see mo rethan that of sql connection, how can i limit the maximum sql threads in Debian 6 ?

09:44<Peng>rnowak: Oh, thanks
09:44<rsully>quick mysql related question. varchar column (innodb) with DEFAULT '\\\\'. when i add a new row the value is in its literal string form, '\\\\' and not \\
09:45<rsully>is it possible a mysql bug, or a bug in my mysql client?
09:45-!-vraa [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
09:46<chesty>io_: as long as you restart mysql after changing max_connections, it is indeed 12. there might be other threads used for housekeeping, how many extra are we talking aboot?
09:46<praetorian>meskarune: couldnt see an artcile on it fyi. however the image here is relevant :P
09:46-!-vynsynt [~Adium@] has joined #linode
09:46<io_>chesty: more than double, I think they are "child threads" but i don t know how to set limits on that
09:47<rnowak>why are you concerned by how many threads it is running?
09:48<io_>sometime Iam getting out of memory and my linode gets very slow
09:48<chesty>apache prefork with mod_php?
09:48<io_>swap is full and just a few MB free on RAM, then the CPU of course starts to go crazy tryin to keep up with the HD wapping
09:49<meskarune>I see praetorian :)
09:49<praetorian>have yu thought about caching.
09:49<rnowak>if you told it to only accept 12 connections, it will only accept 12 connections -- you should not be concerned with how many threads it runs to do what it does
09:49<io_>but i have no really intensive sites
09:49<@heckman>Drupal is heavy, at least with my experience.
09:49<@heckman>Even if the traffic isn't high, Drupal noms memory like no other.
09:49<chesty>drupal's my brother

09:49-!-SelfishMan [] has joined #linode
09:50<io_>yes i know but i think i have first to tweak properly my linode before getting more ram
09:50<@heckman>Tell me...?

09:52<rnowak>did you remote-wipe it?
09:52-!-vraa [] has joined #linode
09:52<praetorian>yeah its queued. but it will never be able to connect
09:52<praetorian>its wifi model.. so whats the chance of it getting onto my network
09:53<dwfreed>praetorian: my understanding of the remote wipe is that as long as the device can hit the internet, it can receive the remote wipe signal
09:53<praetorian>dwfreed: correct. but it won't be able to hit the internet :-)
09:55<dwfreed>also would not be surprised if Apple put code in iTunes and/or OS X to tell the device to wipe if there's a standing remote wipe order out for it, even if the device itself never sees internet
09:55<rsully>dwfreed: i would be surprised. i think their implementation is narrow minded
09:55<praetorian>yeah, i do wonder that.. because the serial number is locked to my account
09:55<praetorian>i know they do block certain serials.. as ive seen people who have 'purchased' iphones that were stolen
09:56<meskarune>oh that sucks
09:56<praetorian>yep.. but oh well. i can't do much
09:56<meskarune>praetorian: you should get a purse
09:57<meskarune>idk what the male version of those is called. brief case...?
09:57<praetorian>friend has a STK ipad bag.. seems like a great idea in hindsight
09:57<praetorian>anyway, sucks.
09:57<meskarune>did you ask the store people about a lost and found? maybe someone dind't take it ?
09:57<chesty>praetorian: next time install a call home app
09:58<praetorian>meskarune: i did, they checked security cams and stuff as well
09:58<rnowak>why were you prancing around with an ipad in your hands anyway? did you carry a frappuccino in the other hand?
09:58<hawk>I think it would be hilarious if the remote wipe-thing also disabled the power button and squealed as loudly and annoyingly as it possibly can for as long as it has power.
09:58<praetorian>rnowak: was out getting dinner as well :P

11:21<Kunda>should all my vhosts have a DNS A record (caduceus) record & MX ( record that point to my mailserver? (more precisely is the A record essential?)
11:22<MajObviousman>I don't bother with MX records for domains that I have no desire to receive mail on
11:23<Kunda>MajObviousman, good to know. In my context I want to receive mail for all of them.
11:23<hawk>Then you probably should have MX records
11:24<Kunda>hawk, is the A record essential ?
11:24<MajObviousman>well, you can cheat a bit
11:24<MajObviousman>set MX records on your main domain, then make your subdomains CNAME back to it
11:24<MajObviousman>so you don't have to have separate MX records for each one
11:24<hawk>Kunda: Which A record? And for email specifically or something else?
11:24<MajObviousman>but if you're rolling different IPs for each one, you'll need distinct MX records
11:24<smed_>SpaceHobo - new keyboard pls!
11:25<MajObviousman>also, keep something in mind here
11:25<MajObviousman>if you have more than one MX record, say a friend is backstopping your MTA with his
11:25<Kunda>hawk, for email specifically
11:25<Peng>Kunda: The Internet isn't about to run out of DNS records. What's the problem?
11:25<MajObviousman>spammers have learned that the lower priority MX servers are usually easier to abuse
11:25<Kunda>MajObviousman, just one IP...
11:26<MajObviousman>so if you DO specify a backup MX, prepare to receive a LOT of spam to that location
11:26<MajObviousman>a lot of backups are just buffering mail until the primary comes in. All mail, not filtering
11:26<hawk>Kunda: If there is an MX record for "", then there doesn't have to be an A record for "" (in terms of mail specifically!). Whatever name the MX record points at must have an A/AAAA record, though.
11:27<Kunda>hawk, thanks
11:27<MajObviousman>so all that spam sits on their server until your back up, then it gets shipped over to you. Imposes a hit on your friend's MTA
11:27<Kunda>MajObviousman, yes, I've been learning about such things
11:27<MajObviousman>kinda clever on the spammers part
11:28<Kunda>I erroneously added an A record pointing to my mailserver for every vhost. <sigh> the eternal noob

11:31<Kunda>MajObviousman, question, so if at the moment i have no secondary MX server (i know, it's not very responsible of me; working on a solution) Should I set my primary MX with a 0 priority in leu of what you're sharing
11:31<MajObviousman>are you gonna let him do that?
11:31<Kunda>right now it's set to 10
11:31<rnowak>it doesn't matter what it is
11:31<MajObviousman>Kunda: I don't agree with your assertion that it's irresponsible not to have a backup
11:31<Kunda>or it doesn't matter since I just have 1 MX server
11:31<MajObviousman>and no, the number doesn't matter so much
11:31<MajObviousman>it's just relative to the other servers you've got
11:31<MajObviousman>if you only have one, that number really means nothing
11:32<Kunda>ok..roger that
11:32<MajObviousman>I have only one MX. If my server goes down, I get no email
11:32<MajObviousman>so it behooves me to keep it up
11:32<rnowak>that's stupid
11:32<hawk>Kunda: The rule is just that the lowest number will have the highest priority. If there is only one number it has to be the lowest.
11:33<MajObviousman>it's lazy more than stupid
11:33<MajObviousman>to do it right means leasing a second linode or contracting with a friend
11:33<auraka>MajObviousman: Lazy and stupid....bad combination

11:34<MajObviousman>what does it impact you if my mail server goes down?

12:30<caseydriscoll> that is

15:22<webroasters>from my local machine that is also ubuntu
15:22<smed_>or use locate if that is installed on ununtu...
15:23<smed_>on your local machine do a "which scp"
15:23<webroasters>returns nothing
15:23<webroasters>hold on
15:23<smed_>maybe scp is in /bin?
15:24<webroasters>yes, it returns an entry on my local machine.. root is the owner of i
15:24<smed_>is it in /usr/bin ?
15:24<webroasters>on the server, there's no information returned
15:25<smed_>hold on - gotta run downstairs....
15:25-!-endzyme [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:25<smed_>you need to find the scp command on your local machine

16:12<TheVillageIdiot>Hi all
16:12<smed_>was that your preferred moniker?
16:12<TheVillageIdiot>in this instance, yes
16:13<TheVillageIdiot>My issue is too embarrassing to admit to using my real handle
16:14<TheVillageIdiot>I accidentally symlinked a directory to itself (which I would think I would have gotten a warning on the CLI about)
16:14<dzho>I don't know if noclobber even will warn about something like that
16:14<TheVillageIdiot>is there any way to recover the contents of that directory?
16:15<TheVillageIdiot>(centos 6.2 x64 ext3 journaling fs)
16:15<smed_>I would think that resolving that would consist of removing the erroneos symlink
16:16<TheVillageIdiot>I'm not a complete linux n00b but I have never been so stupid as to wipe out production data
16:16<smed_>in which case I would expect to find the contents of that directory untouched....
16:16<smed_>well you have backups. right?
16:16<TheVillageIdiot>yeah I tried "unlink" but the containing directory is now void of any reference to it
16:16<TheVillageIdiot>yeah I have the backups enabled on that linode

16:18<smed_>so you unlinked the directory that you symlinked to accidentally?
16:19<@akerl>Today is national backup testing day!
16:19<smed_>so this was production data?
16:19<smed_>and you do not have an off-site backup of that directory?
16:20<TheVillageIdiot>lets say the symlink was in /home/httpd/idiot/somedir -> /home/httpd/idiot/somedir from idiot I type unlink somedir and it worked to remove the link, but obviously the directory that used to be at somedir is gone
16:20-!-duckx [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:21<@akerl>For the record, you can shrink your existing disks, restore from your backup without destroying the current disks, mount the restore to copy the files over, then delete the restored disks and resize your current disk back up
16:21<TheVillageIdiot>and no, I don't have rsync set up again yet, we just moved to linode yesterday (and luckily have a full linode backup after we changed the paths to make everything work again)
16:21<jeremyb>akerl: google seems to think that's march 31
16:21<@akerl>You can also restore to a new Linode, get the files, and remove it when you're done
16:21<smed_>I think you removed the data in that directory with unlink....
16:22<@akerl>smed_: How would you have removed the symlink?
16:22<smed_>I think it's possible if you just "rm somedir" you may have the contents of that directory intact.
16:22<hawk>I think the whole thing sounds really strange
16:22<@akerl>smed_: I think you're wrong
16:22<smed_>I could be...
16:22<smed_>I've honestly not done that before.
16:23<rnowak>info unlink
16:23<smed_>I'm on the man page...
16:23<rnowak>why would you speculate on things you have no clue about? :)
16:23<smed_>k - retracted.
16:24<smed_>so at this point - his only recourse would be restore that backup snapshot
16:24<smed_>which sucks
16:24<smed_>but is doable.
16:24<TheVillageIdiot>thats what I was thinking
16:25<smed_>I was confusing the symlink with a mistake I've made frequently by mounting remote filesystems on top of mount-points that currently contain data

16:27<@akerl>I think he's doing it wrong
16:28<TheVillageIdiot>So how does the restore work? blow away the linodes configs and vdisks and then restore from backup? That should take what about 15-30 minutes?
16:28-!-jakechapa [] has joined #linode
16:28<@akerl>TheVillageIdiot: I wouldn't suggest blowing away your current disks
16:28<Peng>smed_: The thing to remember about an open casket is that the only thing you can really see is the face. The rest of it can be faked.

16:31<Peng>TheVillageIdiot: It's not, unfortunately.
16:31<smed_>you're going to have to create another linode to restore your data too
16:32<TheVillageIdiot>they're only charged while they exist so that likely won't be very costly either
16:32<smed_>sorry dude...document your process as you go along and you'll have a DR plan upon completion

16:34<@akerl>TheVillageIdiot: You can shrink your disks and restore to the same Linode

16:41<duckxx>yea i was thinking of writing a script that would run everyday and just replicates the site
16:41<@heckman>duckxx: is the goal just to see how it looked in the past, or is there more to it?
16:41<smed_>I maintain 30-days of our production web-site using a simple rsync script
16:41<@heckman>rnowak: feels a bit hacky.
16:41<duckxx>yea to see what was changed also
16:41<duckxx>in the past
16:41<rnowak>does it? wget supports just that using a few flags
16:42<@akerl>You're describing version control, duckxx
16:42<duckxx>the site is a drupal site
16:42<@akerl>To a tee
16:42<smed_>Drupal does implement version control on individual content items IIRC
16:42<rnowak>if you use postgresql you can use WALs, with their point-in-time recovery capabilities
16:42<duckxx>yea i know version contrl but i dont want that.. i just want time based backups where i can access as live sites
16:42<smed_>I dont know how good it is....
16:43<@akerl>git repo, cron'd `git commit -an "$(date)"` nightly, problem solved
16:43<@heckman>akerl: do you mean wget the site and then drop it in to git, or are you talking about the entire codebase?
16:43<@akerl>heckman: codebase
16:43<duckxx>with database
16:44<rnowak>which rdbms do you use?
16:44<@heckman>akerl: yeah, that doesn't work so well for dynamic content where the entries in the DB are changing. Almost sounds like he wants to see how the site worked on that day.
16:44<duckxx>an entire working live site but it gets copied to a time slot everyday for 14 days
16:44<@akerl>cron to dump database to file -> include dump in git -> profit
16:44<@heckman>I guess you could just restore the snapshot to a different DB and have an archive vhost or something.

16:45<@akerl>If you can pull the codebase from your version control for a relatively arbitrary point in time, and pull the state of your DB for a relatively arbitrary point in time, you can do a fairly quick and painless job of viewing how your site was at that time

18:43<Guest3697>oh man that is great
18:43<Guest3697>I have a server running on linode. I wanna take my web application from there clone it and run it on a new linode but with a different url

18:52<Guest3697>okay that is what I thought

18:53<@akerl>That said, if you're just developing the web application, not doing dev work on the server's configuration itself, you can probably use virtual hosts to run and on the same Linode
18:53<Guest3697>no its dev work. The app is running now

19:19<@heckman>How many files are in your Linode?
19:19<@heckman>What's the LinodeID?
19:19<TheVillageIdiot>2 hours and 7 minutes of that has gotten me 0.6% of my CentOS 6.2 x64 vdisk
19:21<TheVillageIdiot>@heckman, just PMed you

20:29<meme>hi, i'm building my server to be a node.js and php server, no mail. I will install nginx as a proxy for node. is it possible to use the nginx proxy as a server for the php at the same time? if so, any links to help me out?
20:31<meme>should i just follow instructions for a LEMP stack?
20:32<meme>and install node and set proxy_pass; ?
20:32<rnowak>pretty much
20:34<meme>mm, good
20:35<meme>nice that nignx is so flexible, i never used, only apache

21:08<SirSquidness>rnowak: I can't tell meme, since he's gone, but if he's using NodeJS and PHP, it's probably because he wants NodeJS for websocekts (reasonable assumption maybe?), and I don't believe nginx proxy works well with websockets
21:08<rnowak>do you feel better now that you've told me?
21:09<amitz>Dr. suibatso, is that you?
21:10<rnowak>and not everything nodejs is websockety, maybe he just wants to run two different applications that run on different platforms, not totally unheard of

23:20<Peng>Is running an IRC client connecting to normal ports 1.) allowed and 2.) physically possible in Atlanta? I can't remember.
23:20<kyhwana>Peng: yes
23:21<kyhwana>you just can't listen on port 667?
23:21<Daevien>kyhwana: 6667 for irc servers is what you meant i think
23:22<@akerl>Peng: I'd host it somewhere else
23:22-!-countrygeek [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
23:23<@akerl>Or do you mean a client as in "your irssi session"
23:23<Daevien>akerl: he asked abotu client though, which is prob ok in atlanta.. at least unless you get attacked then the atlanta rabid dogs will be se ton you

23:25<@akerl>The crazy blocking of ports thing is not something we designed just to spite people in Atlanta, so I'm not an expert on the end result
23:25<Peng>akerl: Heh. Yes, I can imagine the moustache-twirling meetings where you decide how to drive users crazy. :>
23:26<Daevien>it's a datacenter thing in that location.. can't remember if i ever sued irc from an atlanta linode or server i used to have there though
