01:54<Muthukumar>Hi linode team.. We're trying to host a solution which will have queries per second upto 50K.
01:55<Muthukumar>While checking the node balancer, it supports only 10,000 concurrent connections -- Is there any way to increase it or opt for special versions to have that support?
01:59<Xel>What exactly are you building, out of curiosity?
01:59<arlen>get more nodebalancers
02:00<Muthukumar>We're building real time bidding ad tech solution
02:00<pharaun>build a tree of nodebalancer? :P
02:00<Muthukumar>It will always hit only one domain name like
02:00<Xel>And you are somehow expecting 50k/sec?
02:00<Xel>Won't that take years?
02:00<Muthukumar>Tree of nodebalancer --- please share more details.
02:00-!-Naresh [] has joined #linode
02:01<Muthukumar>Yes, we'll be expecting some thing in the range of 50K to start with
02:01<Naresh>hi is there anyone can assist me.
02:01<+linbot>If you have a question, feel free to just ask it -- someone's always willing to help. If you don't get a response right away, be patient!
02:02<Muthukumar>One node balancer will be mapped to one domain name .. So to reach beyond 10K QPS / connections, how we can do that
02:02<arlen>use more nodebalancers
02:03<Muthukumar>can we use multiple node balancers pointed to same domain name?
02:03<arlen>yes you can point a domains dns to more than one nodebalancer
02:03<Muthukumar>ok sure, we'll give it a try and see.
02:04<Naresh>ok. i have platform for lead tracking same as we can say as currently i am runinng my lead tracking platform on Shared hosting. and it is too slow there. so i want to move here. How much ram and memory space i need.. ?.
02:04<arlen>we dont know
02:04<arlen>only you can answer that
02:07<Kyhwana>How long is a peice of string?
02:08<Xel>I feel like we're getting trolled
02:08<Muthukumar>@arlen, if we're setting up 5 node balancers and pointing all of them to (Example). how the 50K queries/connections be distributed.
02:08<Muthukumar>Will it be sticky based on something or round robin or weighted average or DNS resolution?
02:08<arlen>with dns
02:09<Muthukumar>DNS will be cached at client end i suppose. Then all of them will be trying to hit the same node balancer again n again?
02:09<arlen>maybe not
02:11<Muthukumar>It will be great if you can give more details since we'll not be load balancing in case of DNS cache
02:11<pharaun>how many clients are there
02:13<Muthukumar>We can say 5000 clients making 50K concurrent connections
02:13<arlen>there's no secret option to increase the number of concurrent connections a nodebalancer will accept, so your only option is to have more than one and use dns, or find a different solution.
02:14<Muthukumar>ok, thanks
02:15<Kyhwana>hmm, when will the linode loadbalancers do http2?

05:01<Kyhwana>I've found CPU seems better on linoe than DO
05:02<jos>I have seen that for the same price (ex: $80), I will get more cores in Linode.
05:02<jos>And data transfer is also more.

07:59<jos>Hello, Will Linode detect my VPS and IP address as a spam generator, if I install Interspire Email Marketer in my linode VPS and sending out emails at the rate of 4000 per hour ? Is there any such spam checking policy for Linode ?

07:59<frankatdino>Hi Chaps. We're using linode for most of our hosting, but one of our clients has popped up and said that before we can use linode for their website, you chaps would have to complete an IT security due diligence process. Can you point me at who would answer that (I've assumed that you'd be willing to do so: this may not be the case).

08:01<akerl>jos: If you're sending spam, Linode will stop you from sending spam
08:03<jos>We won't send spams, but we will send legitimate (authenticate with SMTP) Advertisement emails of Events, Meetings etc. So please suggest based on that.
08:04<frankatdino>akerl: are you directing me to email support?
08:06<akerl>frankatdino: That or open a ticket
08:06<akerl>We're the user community
08:06<frankatdino>ok, no worries, cheers for assist.
08:07<akerl>jos: Uh huh
08:08<akerl>jos: My suggestion is as previously given: If you send spam, Linode is going to stop you from sending spam, and since from their end, they aren't DPIing your emails, that usually means at the minimum blocking SMTP traffic by shutting off the valve on port 25. If you're not sending spam, you've got nothing to worry about
08:08<akerl>Amusingly, Linode is only one of a whole collection of entities who apply similar policies, the rest of them just do it on the receiving end by blacklisting your IP as a spam source
08:10-!-avenj [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:11<jos>akerl, I am worried about the volume of the emails: 4000 per hour. Is this will cause the DPIing (spam source) ? What about if it is reduced to 1000 per hour ?
08:12<jos>Sorry for the above message
08:12<akerl>The issue is not quantity, it is quality
08:13<akerl>It doesn't matter if you send 10 or 10,000, whether or not Linode steps in depends on if they're spam
08:14<jos>ok, so the quantity doesn't matter. But the quality - depends on SMTP authentication , proper DNS records etc, Correct ?
08:15<hawk>jos: I would interpret the quality to have more to do with how the recipient addresses ended up in the system. Ie, will they be complaining that you are sending them unsolicited stuff or not?
08:17<jos>We have a subscribing/ unsubscribing system to collect valid recepient email ids.
08:18<Nivex>I used to work for a "permission-based email marketing firm". It was amazing how the rules on what constituted permission got warped once the money started flowing. I lasted a year.

12:54<oktaydegerli>hello there
12:54<oktaydegerli>i've 4 servers running and each of them have 2tb xfer
12:55<oktaydegerli>but i see my total quota is 4000gb.. why is that?
12:55<oktaydegerli>it says "1GB Used, 3422GB Remaining, 3423GB Quota"
12:55<akerl>It's prorated
12:55<@caker>transfer is pooled together; and it's also pro-rated. So, you don't get 2TB if you add a Linode with only 3 days remaining in the month...
12:55<@caker>(but you will the next full month)
12:56<oktaydegerli>so i'll have 8tb bandwidth if i use them full month?
12:57<oktaydegerli>ok i understood what u mean i think
12:57<oktaydegerli>i've 60gb around bandwidth each day then?
12:57<akerl>Transfer, and sure, if you want to use it evenly
12:58<akerl>Or you have 8TB on day one and then you've hit your quota

16:27<Eugene>tr0gd0r - no PMs, please.
16:27<tr0gd0r>Oh Im sorry
16:27<Eugene>BSOD on boot is indicative of missing drivers; I had a lot of issues getting it going initially because of the specific need for virtio-scsi
16:28<tr0gd0r>as oopsed to viostor?

16:28-!-BillyBobJohn1 [~Misacorp@] has joined #linode
16:28-!-BillyBobJohn1 was kicked from #linode by ChanServ [Please use another method to access #linode]
16:28<Eugene>Hence the specific virt-install command
16:28<tr0gd0r>I was able to get it to boot using full virtualization
16:29<Eugene>Yup, because that uses the legacy IDE/PIIX driver set
16:29<tr0gd0r>Im trying again once more with the newer virtio drivers just for fun
16:29<Eugene>You lose a bit of I/O performance(theoretically...) over virtio, but I don't care enough
16:31-!-bbankes [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:31<tr0gd0r>so Linode is using virtio-scsi instead of viostor, thats interesting
16:31<Eugene>Yeah, a bit annoying.
16:31<tr0gd0r>I am just hoping we get the ability to upload our own ISOs soon
16:31<Eugene>I've suggested/requested it as well. There is a rumour that Gish is coming, but no sign of it yet
16:32<Eugene>FWIW, `dmidecode` should show the same drivers on your source KVM guest and the destination Linode.
16:32<Eugene>The disk+network ones being the most important

16:34<tr0gd0r>I can see windows booting up
16:34<tr0gd0r>then see the BSOD
16:34-!-NomadJim_ [] has joined #linode
16:35<tr0gd0r>So you have a working Windows using Virtio running right now? or only using full virtualization?
16:35<Eugene>Oh, wow, when did Glish happen
16:35<Eugene>That makes it a /lot/ easier
16:36<Eugene>I have a full virtio going, yeah.
16:36<Eugene>With Glish, you don't need to do any farting about with a source KVM guest
16:36<Eugene>All you have to do is convert the ISO into a disk.img, then upload that
16:38<Eugene>Today, apparently. Neat.
16:38<tr0gd0r>where do I upload the img?
16:38<Eugene>You would create a Raw disk image and dd it up
16:38<tr0gd0r>I tried that
16:38<tr0gd0r>Wouldnt boot because it said the disk didnt have an MBR
16:39<Eugene>You can't dd the ISO directly; you need to convert it to a bootable HD img
16:39<tr0gd0r>oh okay
16:39<Eugene>Like if you were making a bootable USB stick
16:39<Eugene>I don't have a one-liner handy for that, sorry
16:39<tr0gd0r>I was reading an article that said you could do dd if=iso of=/dev/sdb
16:39<tr0gd0r>for an ubuntu iso
16:39<tr0gd0r>figured it would work for a windows ISO as well
16:39<Eugene>Nope, syslinux uses a magic dual-mode header for that trick. MS hasn't learned that yet
16:40<tr0gd0r>So I have made bootable usb drives in Windows using the ISO, but never from linux
16:40<tr0gd0r>I will have to research that
16:40<Eugene>You ought to be able to do it by making a loopback device, formatting+mounting as NTFS with the bootable flag set, and then extracting the ISO into it
16:40<Eugene>But that's not one I've done either
16:41<tr0gd0r>NTFS on Linux isnt great
16:41<Eugene>I know.
16:41<tr0gd0r>But you should be able to do a FAT32 partition
16:41<tr0gd0r>thats what I do on Windows at least
16:41<Eugene>Probably. Loopback devices are fiddly with being partitioned is the bigger issue
16:41<Eugene>If nothing else, make a USB stick on a Windows box, plug it into a linux machine, and then dd that
16:41<tr0gd0r>exactly what I was thinking
16:42*Celti has never successfully made a Windows USB on a Linux box
16:42<Celti>always have to borrow someone's Windows box and use that
16:42<tr0gd0r>I will start doing that now and will report back with results
16:42<Eugene>Wow, Glish is nifty.
16:42<Celti>(borrow because one of my own is NEVER handy when I need one)
16:42<tr0gd0r>I will post the img file too
16:42<Eugene>Remember to copy the virtio drives into the Fat32 fs
16:42<tr0gd0r>server 2016?
16:43<Eugene>That's probably technically illegal ;-)
16:43<tr0gd0r>I wont include any license keys with it
16:43<Eugene>That is a Server 2012 R2 Core machine
16:43<tr0gd0r>So with EMS can you do anything you could do on the command line?
16:43<tr0gd0r>I have never used EMS before
16:43<Eugene>It's been a while since I've read the license agreement, but AFAIK distribution of modified media is a no-go
16:44<Eugene>EMS is a kernel interface. You can have it generate a cmd shell and then login to cmd.exe
16:44<Eugene>And from there, powershell or whatever

17:26<Eugene>Select that as your boot device and go

18:08<tr0gd0r>Eugene: I was able to get the Installer to boot
18:09<tr0gd0r>however I cannot load the drivers since the installer doesnt have the drivers built in
18:09<tr0gd0r>clicking the button to browse to a driver doesnt list the install drive
18:09<Eugene>That ought to have been obvious, heh
18:09<tr0gd0r>I need to slipstream the drivers into the actual installer
18:09<Eugene>Try it in Full-virt mode?
18:09<tr0gd0r>I could try that.
18:10<tr0gd0r>Could I then switch to para-virt after installing?
18:10<tr0gd0r>And not get a bsod
18:10<Eugene>I fiddled around with doing an autounattend install, so it could be all-text. I got nowhere with WIM repacking and gave up
18:10<Eugene>Maybe. I haven't tried it
18:10<tr0gd0r>I just need to slipstream the drivers into the wim
18:10<tr0gd0r>then I would have no problems
18:10<Eugene>Yeah. I couldn't get that to work with linux tools
18:10<Eugene>And I don't have enough liquor to use the windows tools
18:11<tr0gd0r>Im a Windows sysadmin by trade so I have the tools
18:11<Eugene>Makes sense.
18:11<Eugene>I wouldn't worry about para- vs full-virt, anyway. The I/O hit will be minimal compared to the baseline performance level(from SSDs)
18:11<tr0gd0r>it would all be so much easier once they allow iso uploads
18:11<Eugene>maybe when proper ISO support is added ;-)
18:12<Cromulent>since you guys are talking about Windows do you know if there is a Windows Server developer edition for making server side software on Windows like the developer edition of SQL Server?
18:12<Cromulent>I don't mind spending some money on a Windows Server license but I don't need a full license since its just for testing really
18:15<Eugene>Not a clue.
18:15<Eugene>I get all my keys from MSDN :-p
18:16<Cromulent>my boss did mention the possibility of me getting an MSDN subscription a few months ago - might be worth pushing for it a bit harder :)
18:16<Cromulent>but I'm mainly a Linux guy so Windows is totally foreign to me

18:40<ctpdump>hmm.. I get a lot of squares
18:41<ctpdump>ah, took a few attempts to start
18:41<Eugene>I've noticed its a bit touchy

18:42<Eugene>Mine worked fine first try
18:42<Eugene>I don't have any KVM Linux nodes....
18:42<ctpdump>and now it says your linode is powered off :) (it's not!)

18:44<Peng>If you'll forgive brief off-topic-ness: my up, down and backslash keys just stopped working. o_o Linux being weird, or old laptop dying oddly?

19:33<tr0gd0r>Because the install drive was a hard drive and not a cd rom
19:34<tr0gd0r>sure enough they are using the scsi pass through controller

21:41<Sage905>And yet, I can't find the cause.
21:41<akerl>You don't appear to have even looked at the full netfilter
21:41<akerl>Just that one table
21:41<Sage905>What would cause ping to work, and dig @ to not work.
21:42<Sage905>As I stated, I deleted the iptables config in /etc/sysconfig/iptables and rebooted
21:42<akerl>And nothing else on your system talks to netfilter?
21:42<akerl>and you checked everything else on your system to confirm that?
21:42<Sage905>Not that I am aware of.
21:43<Sage905>I don't rule it out, but if it does, it was not because I asked it to.
21:43<Sage905>Hm... wait... fail2ban.
21:43<akerl>Oh, fail2ban. Making systems shittier without improving security since 1990
21:43<akerl>or whenever fail2ban was released.
21:43<akerl>It's not super relevant to the point
21:44<Sage905>fail2ban limits brute-force attacks. And I'm not here to argue it's relevance to your use-cases.
21:45<Sage905>Booting after the upgrade... Let's see...
21:45<Sage905>I fear you will be correct, but it still leaves me puzzled.
21:46<Sage905>Even the Rescue boot didn't give me network connectivity.
21:46<akerl>So ping -c5 fails?
21:46<Sage905>ping works fine
21:46<akerl>so you have network connectivity
21:47<Sage905>I'm just unable to initiate outbound connections.
21:47<akerl>what do you think "ping" is doing?
21:47<Sage905>I can ssh inbound to the server just fine.
21:48<akerl>If ping works, then you have made an outbound connection
21:48<Sage905>Ping is sending a packet with the type set to ICMP to my destination and reporting the receipt of an ICMP packet from that host.
21:48<Sage905>It is NOT making a connection
21:48<akerl>It's making just as much of a "connection" as your dig
21:49<Sage905>Since DNS is UDP and stateless.
21:49<akerl>No way
21:49<Kyhwana>So where's the pastebin of iptables -n -L -v ?
21:49<akerl>Kyhwana: Shhhhh
21:50<retro|blah>What do "ip addr", "ip route" show?
21:50<akerl>though -save would be better, since there's all those other fun tables
21:50<Sage905>This is weird...
21:50<Sage905>I have disabled iptables, yet I still get this:
21:50<Sage905> nf_conntrack: automatic helper assignment is deprecated and it will be removed soon. Use the iptables CT target to attach helpers instead.
21:50<akerl>"disabling iptables" is not a thing
21:50<akerl>Well, it is, but you didn't do it
21:50<Sage905>Sorry... I have: chkconfig iptables off
21:51<akerl>This would be much more expedient if rather than try to fathom the nature of kernel-land network rules you pastebined iptables-save as well as ip addr and ip route
21:53*Sage905 waits for enlightenment
21:54<retro|blah>Break out tcpdump and then do your dig test. See if the reply is coming back to you over the wire
21:55<Kyhwana>Sage905: so "lynx" doesn't work?
21:55<akerl>You haven't had any tickets opened on your account recently, have you
21:55<akerl>Anything like "You're doing a DNS ampification attack against some grandma's cat blog" or similar?
21:55<akerl>You're really really sure?

21:56<Sage905>Next question?
21:57<Kyhwana>Sage905: well, time to break out tcpdump and lynx again
21:59<retro|blah>What part are you saying "seriously" to?
21:59<akerl>You're asking if we seriously are suggesting you investigate why your system can't make the requests you want to make?
22:02<Sage905>So, for fun, I ran tcpdump.
22:02<Sage905>I see lots of outbound requests to udp port 53
22:02<Sage905>I see absolutely 0 inbound packets on that port
22:03-!-seanh-corona [] has joined #linode
22:03<Kyhwana>You're not running ufw or anything like that are you?
22:03<Sage905>On CentOS 6.5? No
22:03<Sage905>Hm. Interesting.
22:03<Sage905>In one of my previous tests, I was unable to wget from an address.
22:03<Sage905>Now, wget works.
22:03<Sage905>So it looks like it's just DNS that isn't responding.
22:04<akerl>Well yes
22:04<akerl>I figured that was obvious from the fact that SSHing to it works but takes forever to get a prompt
22:04<akerl>because sshd is frantically trying to make the reverse lookup
22:04<Sage905>Well, inbound ssh worked.
22:04<Sage905>I never tried outbound ssh.
22:05<Sage905>I was presuming a firewall related issue.
22:05<HoopyCat>what IP address(es) is/are the packets seemingly going to?
22:05<akerl>My money is still on dns amplification

22:06<retro|blah>It would've been blindingly obvious if an abuse ticket had been opened though
22:06<akerl>retro|blah: You might be surprised how many people don't notice abuse tickets
22:06<akerl>the red box is so easy to miss :P
22:06<akerl>And some folks have restricted accounts and don't get the privilege
22:08<Sage905>I have had abuse tickets opened on me before.
22:08<Sage905>I had an SNMP one on another account.
22:08<HoopyCat>i had my first one this weekend
22:08<Sage905>I dealt with it in less than half an hour.
22:08<Sage905>This is not my first rodeo.
22:09<Sage905>And DNS was working perfectly before the KVM upgrade.
22:09<akerl>Well in that case lets stop the investigation
22:09<akerl>culprit identifid
22:09<Sage905>Perhaps the MAC address of my host changed to one that was tagged for abuse prior?

23:03<stuff>I've tried resetting the root password twice using the Linode dashboard
23:03<stuff>still unable to gain access to my machine... what's going on?
23:04-!-Yaazkal [yaazkal@] has joined #linode
23:04<retro|blah>What are you SSHing into specifically?
23:04<stuff>my Linode server
23:04<stuff>into the IP
23:04<stuff>that I was just in
23:04<stuff>and I exitted out, and now when I try to SSH I get incorrect password...
23:05<stuff>I'm copy pasting the password, the same as I did the first time I was in my server
23:05<retro|blah>Try logging into your server's console via LISH and see if (1) you're able to log into console with that password, (2) your auth logs show anything.
23:05<+linbot>LISH allows you to perform certain actions without having to log in to the Linode Manager. LISH's primary function is to allow you to access your Linode's console, even if networking is disabled.
23:05<stuff>I tried LISH, same thing... incorrect password
23:06<retro|blah>Also, what user are you SSHing in as?
23:06<stuff>root, since I just built this server
23:08<Kyhwana>stuff: Sure you were entering the password correctly into lish? (is deny root logins via ssh set?)
23:08<stuff>no it is not set, and yes
23:08<retro|blah>I would suggest you reboot to rescue mode, mount your disks and then see what your logs say. You can also chroot into the installation and change the password that way, and/or check any other configs necessary
23:09<stuff>I'll go ahead and do that. I'm just confused as to why a fresh install just rejects my root password
23:10<stuff>after accepting it
23:10<stuff>and nothing changing
23:10<stuff>except hostname, but that's not relevant

23:18<zifnab>should have been ok then

23:49<arlen>so hours ago when someone mentioned about old abuse tickets
23:50<Sage905>Yes... But there were no old abuse tickets that were open.
23:50<Sage905>That ticket was months ago.
23:50<Sage905>And it was closed.
23:50<Sage905>But not properly handled by Linode.
23:50<arlen>the question was still valid, and you said no
23:51<arlen>could've had this fixed hours ago

23:53<Sage905>It wouldn't have "fixed" anything hours ago. I still needed to work through the ticket with Linode until they found the problem.
23:53<Sage905>I asked them if it was a filter shortly after opening the ticket.
23:54<Sage905>At any rate, you were right that it was related to an abuse ticket.
23:54<arlen>I'm not the one that suggested it
23:54<Sage905>Oh, sorry.
