00:00<DevePy>do not know, I have followed several tutorials and I can not.
00:01<XReaper>That message is telling you exactly what is missing
00:01<DevePy>My project django is: home/devepy/projects/myproject/ .......
00:01<XReaper>missing the supervisorctl section in your .ini
00:02<DevePy>[program:gunicorn] command=/usr/local/bin/gunicorn main:application -c /home/devepy/projectsall/myproject/ directory=/home/devepy/projectalls/myproject user=nobody autostart=true autorestart=true redirect_stderr=True
00:03<XReaper>/usr/local/bin/supervisorctl -h <-- apparently that might help to try?
00:04<DevePy>I've read this tutorial.
00:05<DevePy>like starting gunicorn???
00:05<DevePy>i am use supervisor
00:05-!-N3RVE2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:05<DevePy>this tutorial use shell script
00:08<DevePy>I've been trying for a week and do not get it....

00:08<DevePy>I am totally disappointed.

00:14<XReaper>I'm using uwsgi currently
00:14<XReaper>dunno how gunicorn works
00:15-!-Godsey2 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:15-!-fisted [] has quit [Quit: brb]
00:18<DevePy>uwsgi is easy configure
00:18<DevePy>but all complicated when used supervisor
00:19<EugeneKay>The maintainer of that lib is a lazy bastard
00:19<XReaper>I don't use supervisor with uwsgi
00:19<XReaper>EugeneKay: Hmm?
00:20<XReaper>DevePy: I have uwsgi set up on my linode in emperor mode
00:20<XReaper>if that crashes, systemd respawns it
00:21<DevePy>uwsgi or gunicorn?? gunicorn this done in Python.
00:23<XReaper>nginx speaks native uwsgi protocol
00:24<XReaper>and might be simpler to set up
00:25-!-caseydriscoll [] has joined #linode
00:28<DevePy>Gunicorn its more flexible and faster.
00:29<EugeneKay>Also, anybody interested in cheap HDs: 2TB 7200rpm Seagate $70
00:29-!-Kane` [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:29<Nightmare>If only I actually had money. :(
00:30<EugeneKay>I grabbed a pair to add to my RAID6 media array
00:32<@qmr>ty EugeneKay, I was going to ask if anyone had spotted any great deals on computer stuffs
00:32<kyhwana>black friday right?
00:32<EugeneKay>Yeah, as of nowish
00:32<EugeneKay>It isn't even listed as one of Newegg's deals - it's supposed to be in a combo with a Sata controller card
00:33<EugeneKay>But you can get the drive by itself
00:33<@qmr>EugeneKay: why not 3TB? or zoidberg?
00:33<kyhwana>let it roll
00:33<EugeneKay>Because I have a fleet of 8 2TBs already
00:33<kyhwana>sorry, let it ride..
00:34*qmr is thinking about getting a teevee
00:34<EugeneKay>After these two(which fill the last of my 3.5" bays) I'm gonna wait for 4TBs to hit the magic $50/TB mark, then rebuild it with those
00:34-!-Kane` [] has joined #linode
00:35<EugeneKay>I will prooobably buy two rackmount case of some sort with more bays, and move the current fleet of drives to my colo while guaranteeing more upgradeability for the home array
00:35<EugeneKay>Or something.
00:38<@qmr>I ordered 4 hard drive docks earlier today
00:38<jchen>is that drive good?
00:38<jchen>also why 4 drive docks and not a raid enclosure or nas or soemthing like that
00:38<EugeneKay>It's a 7200rpm, so the spindles/motor will wear a bit faster than the matching 5400/5900 drive
00:39<EugeneKay>And it'll eat a bit more power
00:39<EugeneKay>But desktop HDs lifespans are measured in years nowadays.
00:39<EugeneKay>Point a 120mm fan at it, stop worrying ;-)
00:39<kyhwana>you should be booting from or have your os on a ssd these days anyway
00:40<kyhwana>but then again, what do you back a multi tens of tb raid array to?
00:40-!-tkensiski [] has joined #linode
00:40<EugeneKay>I also have a 50lb box of DVDs
00:41<kyhwana>not on dsl with data caps
00:41<trippeh>data caps? whats that? :o
00:41<EugeneKay>God no. I have a pair of 1TB USB drives circulating between my house and my colo, which has a 100mbit uplink.
00:41<EugeneKay>God bless the USPS.
00:42-!-fisted [] has joined #linode
00:42<EugeneKay>Yup. I abuse remote hands for the remote end(unplug, plug, package, mail back)
00:42<EugeneKay><3 HE
00:42<jchen>free remote hands?
00:42<@qmr>what do you get charged for that?
00:42<EugeneKay>I get "up to 6 hours per month" free.
00:43<EugeneKay>It's supposed to be in 15-minute increments, but they've reinstalled an entire box without even a glance.

02:05<burl>hey all, anyone had any luck getting pv-grub to read an ext4 drive?
02:06<retro|blah>rootflags=nobarrier in your menu.lst
02:07<burl>any way I can enter that in the interactive prompt?
02:07<retro|blah>Oh sorry, I misinterpreted
02:08<burl>:) no worries
02:08<burl>recognises it as ext2fs, but when I attempt kernel /boot/kernel it indicates that it cannot be found...
02:08<burl>have just rebooted and it's most definitely there
02:09<retro|blah>How about just kernel kernel (without the /boot)
02:09<burl>"Filename must be an absolute path or blockname"
02:10<retro|blah>OK, what about kernel /kernel
02:10<burl>kernel /kernel yields no joy either
02:11<burl>all the instructions at linode wiki suggest a simple /boot/grub/menu.lst should do the trick, suggesting to me ext4 should be fine, as this is presumable the default for most distros now
02:11<retro|blah>What is root set to?
02:12<burl>correctly denotes it as ext2fs
02:12<burl>and (hd1) as swap
02:12<burl>going to give a dedicated ext2 /boot drive a go
02:13<retro|blah>I did a dedicated ext3 /boot (dunno if Linode's disk management will let you get away with ext2)
02:14<burl>I have no intention of giving it a choice! though if you say ext3 works with pvgrub?

02:21-!-scorche|sh [] has joined #linode
02:25<burl>well, it can find the kernel now :D
02:26<burl>but I think I've misconfigured somewhat: ERROR Invalid kernel: xc_dom_find_loader: no loader found
02:26-!-tylik [~Thunderbi@] has quit [Quit: tylik]
02:28<retro|blah>Is this a custom kernel or a distro supplied kernel
02:28<burl>custom :)
02:28<burl>was sure I got all the config_xen_* options
02:29<retro|blah>What kernel compression did you select?
02:29<retro|blah>Switch to gzip
02:30<burl>before I reconfigure everything and reboot, do you think that might be exactly it? :P
02:33<retro|blah>I know for a fact that it is an issue that would prevent it from loading under xen. In fact this is covered by the wiki article (though not in the linode library article)
02:33<burl>ah lovely, didn't mean to doubt you, just such a pain switching back and forth xD

07:35<hawk>saltod: You could stick it in your local hosts file if you want to check what the pages look like
07:35<saltod>how do you mean hawk:?
07:36<hawk>saltod: And you should probably actually query the authoritative name servers and make sure they are responding as intended before beginning to just wait, wrt changes to dns in general.
07:37<saltod> There's a lot there that I don't understand =)
07:37<saltod>authoritative name servers?
07:37-!-ircuser-1 [] has joined #linode
07:38<saltod>[ background: I pointed a GoDaddy (yuck) domain at my linode just before midnight last night and am waiting patientily! When I try and access the site via a proxy, it does seem to be working. But I'm getting served the old site here still ]
07:39<saltod>oops, forgot to reply. hawk:
07:40<hawk>Quite possibly because of cached dns data on "your" end
07:41<saltod>that's what I was thinking
07:41<saltod>> You could stick it in your local hosts file if you want to check what the pages look like
07:41<saltod>could you explain that part to me, please?
07:42<hawk>The name resolution system provided by your os, which your applications are using, typically have at least two mechanisms for resolving names. DNS and the hosts file
07:42-!-slav0nic [] has joined #linode
07:43<hawk>If you add this name<->ip mapping to the hosts file while you wait, you can still test things.
07:44<saltod>Even if I host several sites from that same ip?
07:44<saltod> / same linode
07:46<saltod>Hummm.....this might be completely over my head. I can't see how I can access a subdomain via the ip address of my linode
07:47<hawk>Not sure I understand
07:47<saltod>me either =)
07:47<saltod>I'm pretty dense with this dns stuff
07:47<saltod>I don't understand how I can still access my site while I'm waiting for the dns to go through
07:47<hawk>All DNS does it map the name to an IP. The hosts file serves the same purpose (but is mostly abandoned other than for this sort of special cases)
07:48<saltod>My linode has an ip address, but I host 5 subdomains from there. I can't see how I can use the ip address to access a specific subdomain
07:48<hawk>(All DNS does in this specific context, I should say)
07:51<hawk>saltod: The way name-based virtual hosts work is that the browser sends a Host header with the domain name part of the URL. That is not related to DNS specifically.
07:51<XReaper>DNS is easy. I register domains and set it up. bam
07:52-!-stafamus [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:55<saltod>hawk: by hosts file do you mean the file that I have created in Apache's /sites-enabled for my site?
07:55<saltod>or do you mean Ubuntu's host file?
07:55<XReaper>like /etc/hosts
07:55<XReaper>on your ubuntu
07:55<hawk>saltod: I mean the hosts file on the client side
07:55<saltod>yeah, that doesn't have much to do with DNS — and I know even less about that!
07:56<XReaper>oh, it has everything to do with dns

08:11<nyuszika7h_>hi, does anyone know how to get ksplice working, I really don't want to install a kernel with pvgrub, it's a PITA
08:11<nyuszika7h_>Cannot find Ksplice Uptrack information for your kernel version
08:11<nyuszika7h_>(3.5.2-x86_64-linode26 #1 SMP Wed Aug 15 14:31:07 EDT 2012).
08:11<nyuszika7h_>Your kernel is probably not yet supported by Ksplice Uptrack.
08:12-!-DephNet[Paul] [~Paul@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:12<HoopyCat>nyuszika7h_: Oracle doesn't build ksplice files for linode's kernels, so you're going to have to use a kernel they support if you want to use ksplice
08:12<nyuszika7h_>would a kernel from the debian repos work?
08:13<eagles0513875>hey HoopyCat
08:13<nyuszika7h_>and, how could I make my VPS use that kernel?
08:15<HoopyCat>nyuszika7h_: ... you're probably SOL unless you became a ksplice customer before the oracle aquisition
08:15<HoopyCat>nyuszika7h_: and
08:15<nyuszika7h_>ksplice is free for ubuntu, and I installed the deb on debian fine

08:15<HoopyCat>nyuszika7h_: "Please note: The following kernels are only supported for legacy Ksplice customers prior to the Ksplice acquisition. Ksplice Uptrack is no longer offered for these distributions for new customers. Support for these distributions for existing customers remains unaffected."
08:16<nyuszika7h_>oh :(
08:16<nyuszika7h_>so no restartless kernel updates for me
08:16<nyuszika7h_>well, I don't need to update unless I find a bug that affects me, which was the case with 3.4.2
08:17<eagles0513875>HoopyCat: got my nexus 7 and couldnt be happier except with one thing
08:17<XReaper>You spent too much?
08:19<eagles0513875>got it at a whole sale price form someone who gets them here
08:19<eagles0513875>205 Euros
08:19<HoopyCat>nyuszika7h_: the source code of ksplice is still GPL, so you could, in theory, still use it, but oracle sells the "patches" that it applies

09:44<timyim>ah, cool
09:45<HoopyCat>i'll be the jerkface today and say "no, we can't" :-)
09:45<HoopyCat>but i'd be a lying jerkface
09:45<timyim>my is using godaddy as registrar, and they have 250 free smtp requests per day. I have the nameservers setup correctly in godaddy to point to linode
09:46<timyim>my problem is when I switch to linode from slicehost, my email went away
09:46<timyim>and I can't remember what I did to get it working 2 years ago
09:46<Solver>what is the domain?
09:46<HoopyCat>would you happen to remember the names of slicehost's nameservers?
09:46<timyim>i tried setting the mx to godaddy's server as in: dig -t mx
09:47<timyim>* through ns3
09:48<HoopyCat>rats, they don't seem to have in them any more. so much for the easy approach (dig -t mx :-)
09:48<timyim>In my linode DNS manager, I currently have my MX record pointing at
09:48<timyim>but godaddy is saying MX error with no details
09:48<timyim>of course
09:48<HoopyCat>it's probably not (since that implies outgoing mail)

10:17<saltod>ie: Should I be worrying yet? =)
10:18<Solver>I'm seeing that domain delegated to linode from multiple locations
10:19<Solver>could you be looking at cached values?
10:19<saltod>Yeah, me too. I checked on Open DNS and all the servers they list are linked to the linode properly

10:26<js_>or is it kind of low so i'd have to measure it?
10:26<saltod>from home last night, I got the right (Linode) ip, but now at work, I'm getting the old one
10:27<saltod>Solver: and, actually, when I > dig from my linode via ssh, I get the right ip and nameservers
10:28<saltod>Does that suggest that everything is ok, and that we just need to wait a little longer?
10:29<timyim>All right! you guys rock! Email restored. Thanks again everyone!
10:31<Solver>saltod: yes I think it is fine
10:31<Solver>how lon ago did ou redelegate?
10:31<saltod>midnight last night
10:31<Solver>you mentiond midnight but I have no idesa what your TZ i
10:31<saltod>aah....sorry...........12 hours ago
10:32<saltod>So 12 hours isn't outside the norm?
10:32<Solver>rule of thumb is that redelegation can take up to 48hr. in practice I find it normally takes much less than that
10:33<saltod>I've found the same — usually only a few hours. This is the longest its' taken and it has me worried that I've done something wrong!
10:33<Solver>I hit a few com. nameservers to see what they thought of the domain but eac one I tried reported linode as the NS
10:34<saltod>All I need to do is wait then =)
10:34-!-timyim [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:34<saltod>thanks Solver:
10:36<Solver>np. normaly I wouldn't have expected caching to be occuring as you ar using dig
10:36<Solver>havng said that... does your workplace do any interception of Internet traffic?
10:36-!-m3nd3s [~m3nd3s@] has joined #linode
10:37<Solver>some appliances intercept traffic to the authoritative servers and return cached results longer than they should
10:38<Solver>saltod: everything I see suggests the delegation has completed
10:38<Solver>check that MX record though :)
10:38<saltod>I'm at a university — I would expect that they do all kinds of traffic interception!
10:39<Solver>probably :)
10:39<saltod>safe to say though, that If I login to my linode and get the desired result via dig from there that things are ok?
10:39<saltod>my linode is certainly outside of my local dns cache zone — if it's in NJ somewhere
10:40<Solver>I've checked from various location including my linode in atlanta
10:40<saltod>Alright. Well that's good enough for me. Time to figure out what an MX record is =)
10:41<Solver>mae sure mil is working on the host _before_ you point the MX at it
10:41*Solver blames this keyboard for the poor typing ;)
10:42<Solver>make sure mail is working on the host _before_ you point the MX at it
10:42<saltod>Do I even need mail to work there? I thought it already did work...when I installed WordPress, I got an email notification
10:43<Solver>current MX is not responding on standard smtp port (tcp/25) for me
10:44<Solver>saltod: the wordpress notification would be a locally generated emal sent out presumably
10:44<Solver>it is possible you don't want incoming email of course
10:45<saltod>I guess so, yeah. What would I use an MX record for?
10:45<saltod>> is possible you don't want incoming email of course
10:45<Solver>MX record is where mail for the domain is sent
10:45<saltod>maybe that's true — I won't be accepting mail at
10:45<Solver>if you don't have an MX record then modern mail servers treat the A record as an implicit MX 0
10:46<saltod>They use a gmail address
10:47<Solver>Just don't answer it if you don't want it :)
10:47<saltod>true =)

13:45<Dreamer3>ok i'm right
13:47<HoopyCat>odds are good it wasn't frozen per se, more likely just servicing disk I/O requests less rapidly than they were coming in, and stuff was blocking until those requests were serviced. mind you, if serviced requests per second is much less than new requests per second, it does seem a lot like zero :-)

15:35<EugeneKay>Because your VirtualHost configuration is wrong
15:36<saltcod>EugeneKay: I thought just adding the new domain zone took care of the www part
15:36<EugeneKay>In the Manager? No, that's only for DNS
15:36<Peng>saltcod: EugeneKay means your web server's configuration.
15:36<EugeneKay>Your web server needs to be aware of both www. and the bare domain
15:37<saltcod>ooh. Here's my file:
15:37<EugeneKay>Typically this is done by specifying the www. flavor as a ServerAlias, jus underneath your ServerName
15:37<dcraig>change it to ServerAlias
15:37<EugeneKay>Yeah, line 8 should have www.
15:37<EugeneKay>Restart Apache & enjoy
15:37<saltcod>should I have both www and not?
15:38<dcraig>why would the name be the same as the alias?!
15:38<saltcod>have two aliases?
15:38<dcraig>one alias
15:38<EugeneKay>No, Alias is in addition to the Name. No need to specify it as an alias of itself.
15:38<EugeneKay>That's just silly
15:38<saltcod>So I have the whole thing wrong? =)
15:38<EugeneKay>No, just line 8
15:38<dcraig>you need to type "www."
15:38<saltcod>Should the ServerName and the ServerAlias be the same?
15:39<dcraig>so you were 4 characters away from having it right
15:39<dcraig>they should be different
15:39<saltcod>ServerName != the domain name?
15:39<EugeneKay>It does
15:40<dcraig>make one of them the www version and the other one the non-www version
15:40<dcraig>your choice
15:40<saltcod>now I'm getting you
15:40<EugeneKay>ServerAlias is just that - an Alias.
15:41<dcraig>you must be an upright citizen; criminals are more familiar with the concept of aliases

16:19<cfedde>as always. it depends. make some estemates, do some multiplication. see which one meets your bandwidth needs.
16:20<kyhwana>alup: not really, youd need more transfer than cpu/ram
16:22<alup>for a live streaming web radio with a small number of listeners e.g. ~50 per day
16:22<alup>kyhwana: so you propose me another solution such as AWS?
16:23<mwalling>alup: 50 listeners * stream size (64kbps?) * time connected = bandwidth needs
16:23<kyhwana>youd need to find somewhere that can handle your upstream bandwidth and total monthly transfer
16:25<alup>so there are no others here that have used a linode vps for such a case?
16:25<rnowak>is it music or purely voice?
16:26<mwalling>alup: since you've joined, 4 people have said anything. i don't think we're representitive
16:26<alup>rnowak: both should be supported
16:26<rnowak>voice would be more feasible as you get great quality for a fraction of the bitrate, but yeah, you can't really use that for music
16:27<alup>any other known provider?
16:28<cfedde>I don't think anyone is saying that it would not work.

18:07<pk>eugenekay, the application simply doesn't save state.
18:07-!-danblack [] has joined #linode
18:08<pk>each new call to the application spawns an entirely new process.
18:09<EugeneKay>Then something is wrong with your application
18:10<pk>no, its not the case; its the set up.
18:10<pk>or rather, what do you mean ?
18:10<pk>I'm jus using a minimal call ...
18:11<pk>nothing really.
18:11<pk>just a test.
18:11<EugeneKay>Your webserver is supposed to speak to your fastcgi application via a socket or a TCP connection. Process spawning is to be handled by your application
18:11<EugeneKay>There should be zero execution of a local binary by your webserver in speaking with this app
18:11<EugeneKay>If your application is spawning processes, then it's a problem wit hthe app. There is no way for your webserver or its config to control that.
18:12<pk>so, you are saying that hte app should know which process to re-serve to ?
18:12<pk>but, the fci proceses aren't even resident on teh box ...
18:12<EugeneKay>It's a separation of responsibility.
18:13<HoopyCat>the web server picks up the phone, barks "give me /cgi-bin/webapp.php?urmom=2", and that's the end of its involvement
18:13<EugeneKay>If you're passing stuff to a backend then the backend needs to know what to do with it. If you're caching stuff on the backend then said backend should know how to handle followup requests so as to cause a cache hit instead of a miss

19:07<epochwolf>Is there an easy way to transfer all of my dns records from rackspace cloud to linode? AXFR didn't work.
19:08<Peng>Welll... I've heard of scripts that use the Slicehost API, but not hte Rackspace API.
19:09<epochwolf>Peng: I found those
19:09<epochwolf>rackspace support was not helpful on this topic, which isn't a surprise.
19:11<dwfreed>why isn't AXFR working? Is rackspace not allowing it, or...?
19:11<dwfreed>having never used rackspace, I'm not familiar with their stuff
19:11<epochwolf>• The nameserver '' refused our AXFR request.
19:11<epochwolf>they also don't support zone file export
19:12<Peng>epochwolf: It's possible someone has written a Rackspace API-to-zone file script.
19:13<HoopyCat>i haven't checked, but i'd be surprised if libcloud can't slurp DNS records from rackspace. (i'm also pretty sure it can fling DNS records to linode)
19:13<@qmr>'Apache Libcloud is a standard Python library that abstracts away differences among multiple cloud provider APIs.' well that looks interesting
