00:00<warewolf>caker- so do or don't you compress the disk images when you transfer them?
00:02<@caker>warewolf: I used to use a ssh -C somethingorther, but it looks like I removed it when I implemented LVM-enabled migrations
00:02<efudd>gzip -9 /u/warewolf/root.img | telnet -8 linode.he.net | gzip -d > /u/warewolf/roo.img
00:02<@caker>it never did shit anyway
00:03<efudd>Hmm. I'm thinking that I would pre-compress using CPU on the host, then ssh without -C ...
00:03<@caker>more disk IO .. not
00:03<efudd>True.
00:03<efudd>ah well. 1am. later.
00:03<warewolf>well since you're shipping over the internet, and not over a local network, you're probally network bound and not CPU bound
00:03<warewolf>efudd- g'night
00:04[~]warewolf "archives" old mail
00:05<warewolf>maildir is such an awesome mail store format
00:05<Spads>Yes it is.
00:07<TheFirst>mail...what a headache to setup, what a treat when it finally just works
00:08<warewolf>wow that was easy
00:08<warewolf>find Maildir -mtime +320 > archive_list.txt
00:08<warewolf>tar -jcvf mail_archive.tar.bz2 -T archive_list.txt
00:08<warewolf>done
00:09<warewolf>I'd like to see Outlook archive all folders older than 320 days that easially
00:14<@caker>yay .. lish users now show in w
00:16<warewolf># warewolf@xabean.com:~$ find Maildir -type f -mtime +240 -exec rm {} \;
00:16<warewolf>Yaay!
00:16<@caker>heh
00:16<@caker>sweet .. 9 xenodes
00:16<@caker>...who've migrated and are running thus far
00:19<encode>yay
00:19<warewolf>I so love dovecot too
00:19<warewolf>because me toasting the indexes and mail out from underneith it does NOTHING TO IT
00:19<warewolf>it's like "Oh, you did that? ok, lemme recover."
00:21<encode>hehe
00:25<warewolf>wow
00:25<warewolf>Linux really has come a long way.
00:25<warewolf>I just finished installing RHEL4 on a HP box
00:26<warewolf>on the first boot, RHEL gives you the option of installing extra CDs
00:26<warewolf>so on a whim I inserted the SmartStart disc and told it "Go!"
00:26<warewolf>it worked
00:26<warewolf>it detected shit that could be installed on the CD
00:26<warewolf>(vendor support)++
00:27<TheFirst>caker: just gotta keep rubbin' in the xen dontcha....sleep with one eye open i tell ya ;P
00:28<encode>yes
00:28<encode>now if only i could figure out why linux is having issues with the onboard nic on this old ibm pc300
00:31<TheFirst>heh i got one of those problems with usb on my one linux box...i'm choosing to ignore it
00:33<encode>i prefer not to use a pci nic, but it looks like i have no choice :S
00:34<encode>it wont even work with finix!
00:39<TheFirst>heh i'm in the sitch where the manufacturer says "it is supported in linux" where everything else says no
00:51<linbot>New news from forums: system clock problems? in Xen Public Beta <http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2182>
00:57<linbot>New news from forums: iptables in Xen Public Beta <http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2183>
01:48<warewolf>hmm
01:48<warewolf>I hope these posts in the public xen beta forum are not signs of problems
02:00<@caker>warewolf: they're both resolved already
02:01<@caker>one I expected: not getting all the useful kernel options; the other was that the host wasn't running ntpd
02:01<encode>caker: when you compile kernels, have you ever had an issue compiling the zd1211 driver?
02:02<Spads>boy, newsbruiser URLs are just *ugly* sometimes
02:02<@caker>encode: I don'tt even know what device that is, so I guess not
02:02<encode>im running dapper 6.04 at home, with 2.6.15.9 kernel, i downloaded the kernel source from apt, attempted to compile it, and the compile errored out on that driver
02:02<encode>oh well
02:02<encode>i just replaced the Makefile with an empty file, and managed to continue compiling
02:03<encode>im just a bit worried, since i tried compiling just the network drivers, which is what i want to play around with, and i couldnt load the resulting .ko - i got an error about it not being a valid module

02:22<cmantito>thank you
02:23[~]cmantito is one of those people who should not be allowed to get bored.
02:23<taupehat>likewise
02:23<taupehat>I'm just going slowly insane
02:23<cmantito>this morning I got bored and took my ibook's keyboard apart.
02:23<taupehat>moving sucks
02:23<cmantito>it's not going back together.
02:24<cmantito>moving is good. I can't wait to move. Only a couple weeks now.
02:24<cmantito>I have *got* to get out of here.
02:24<taupehat>everything hurts, and I just now got my dsl going, only I forgot my damn ethernet cables, so I'm using the crappy one qwest sent me with the modem and only one computer
02:24<taupehat>but tomorrow I get the warsher and dryer and dishwarsher
02:25<cmantito>heh. cool. where'd you move to?
02:25<taupehat>from one town to another =P
02:25<cmantito>imagine that...
02:25<taupehat>cutting about 40 minutes off my commute
02:25[~]cmantito is gearing up for a move to Britain.
02:25<taupehat>and about 150 bucks off my gas bill
02:25<cmantito>asafp.
02:25<taupehat>dude, that's different
02:25<taupehat>you're not moving - you're emmigrating
02:25<cmantito>trying.
02:25<taupehat>blast it
02:25[~]taupehat would if he could
02:26<cmantito>I only have a 6 month work permit at the moment (well, will receive this week)
02:26<encode>"Building modules, stage 2." yay
02:26<cmantito>I really really desperately need to get a permenant one.

02:29<warewolf>jesus crist
02:30<warewolf>that was totally unnecessary
02:31<warewolf>(the people abusing mikegrb's auto-response)
02:31<cmantito>yea, it really was. but I must admit, it did cure my borededness briefly.
02:34<Spads>I turned out to be wrong

03:01<ttyp0>are you a linode operator?
03:01<cmantito>fo0bar: I had done about 24 hours of scripting and compiling and stuff under a UML kernel, not counting breaks, and I rebooted to test my RC scripts. It shutdown and started up fine and what do I find? The FS reverted to the last time I rebooted! Scripts be gone >.<

03:02<@caker>ttyp0: I went ahead and voided the transaction against your credit card
03:03<ttyp0>okay, so did you get paid?
03:03<@caker>ttyp0: you may use the signup system again if you wish to signup (the bug was fixed)

03:04<ttyp0>ok no prob
03:04<ttyp0>i need it for building a secondary DNS
03:05<ttyp0>it's root access, isn't it? i mean, i'll be able to install a Bind9 dns server
03:05<@caker>you can install whatever you want -- just like on any other Linux box
03:05<encode>except for kernel modules
03:05<ttyp0>okay so it's perfect for me
03:05<@caker>true

04:48<encode>caker: do you suffer from insomnia?
04:48<@caker>encode: no
04:48<@caker>you?
04:48<encode>no
04:48<@caker>I've never
04:48<@caker>thankfully
04:48<encode>but i dont take sleeping pills either
04:49<encode>i figured mainly people with insomnia would take sleeping pills, obviously i was mistaken
04:50<@caker>I think insomnia is much much worse than not having a 9-5 job and kids and a set schedule to keep you regular
04:50<encode>i imagine it would be
04:51<encode>i guess a 9-5 job and living at home with parents and siblings is a good way to keep sleep cycles relatively regular
04:51<encode>i dont tend to have trouble sleeping

12:25<amcnabb>My linode seems to have a real high load average right now even though it's not doing much (this happens every once in a while)
12:26<amcnabb>Is that a common problem?
12:26<@mikegrb>what user name?
12:26<efudd>lack of understanding is definately a common problem.
12:26<amcnabb>mcnabb
12:27<afv-13>amcnabb: what's top say?
12:27<amcnabb>Load average is about 3.5.
12:27<amcnabb>Mem: 115464k total, 113080k used, 2384k free, 2708k buffers
12:27<amcnabb>Swap: 263160k total, 53316k used, 209844k free, 66388k cached
12:27<amcnabb>which doesn't look too bad
12:27<efudd>uh
12:27<efudd>you are in swap
12:27<efudd>that's bad
12:27<efudd>end of story
12:28<efudd>rephrase, you are HEAVILY in swap relative to your memory footprint
12:28<amcnabb>66 MB of memory is cached
12:28<efudd>I care not.
12:28<amcnabb>Is that reducable?
12:28<@mikegrb>echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode
12:29<afv-13>`sync` might help a wee bit
12:29<efudd>Uh
12:29<efudd>sync isn't going to do a damned thing.
12:29<afv-13>not even a wee bit?
12:29<efudd>it'll use up CPU cycles. if you consider that "wee"
12:29<amcnabb>I just tried the laptop_mode--I'll see what that does.
12:30<@mikegrb>amcnabb: run "vmstat 1 10" and paste the output to a paste site

12:31<efudd>so
12:31<amcnabb>I'm not used to running a system without much memory.
12:31<@mikegrb>your blocking on io
12:31<efudd>mike.
12:31<amcnabb>I guess I'm spoiled.
12:31<efudd>look closer
12:31<efudd>he's got 0 in wait.
12:32<efudd>yet 3 blocked (which explains the Load average.)
12:32<efudd>but doesn't explain why they are blocked.
12:32<efudd>if it was io block, i'd almost expect those processes to be in wait also
12:32<efudd>but they ar eblocked without any CPU time
12:32<@mikegrb>right
12:32<efudd>cat /proc/io_status
12:32<@mikegrb>typical for uml
12:32<efudd>typical?
12:32<efudd>never is for me
12:32<efudd>:)
12:32<@mikegrb>he's not being throttled yet
12:33<amcnabb>io_count=175688269 io_rate=88 io_tokens=399967 token_refill=512 token_max=400000
12:33<@mikegrb>always see io blocked but not in r
12:33<efudd> b: The number of processes in uninterruptible sleep.
12:33<@mikegrb>amcnabb: you averaging about 200-300 for io_rate
12:33<efudd>that isn't "io blocked"
12:33<@mikegrb>no but it typically is because the process is io blocked
12:33<efudd> wa: Time spent waiting for IO. Prior to Linux 2.5.41, shown as zero.
12:33<amcnabb>mikegrb, 200-300 seems normal for us
12:33<efudd>That is IO blocked.

12:34<@mikegrb>and based on his io numbers I'd be surprised
12:34<@mikegrb>if that wasn't the problem
12:34<efudd>shrug, i don't know uml.
12:34<efudd>there is a decent quantity of bi tho
12:36<amcnabb>Our memory footprint doesn't seem to vary too much, but sometimes the load goes really high like this.
12:36<@mikegrb>yeah this isn't being caused by swapping but by other disk io
12:36<efudd>fwiw, it doesn't look "Bad"
12:36<@mikegrb>something is reading lots of stuff on disk
12:37<amcnabb>Is there a good way to see which process is responsible?
12:37<efudd>having a load above 1 per CPU isn't anything bad.
12:37<efudd>sure, look and see what processes are in a blocked state via 'ps' with the right arguments
12:38<efudd>I say this isn't bad for you given the high quantity of CPU that you still have available (idle column, no wait)
12:38<efudd>it could be that a process i sa slow reader vs. slow IO...
12:39<efudd>for example, somethign that reads from /dev/random or /dev/urandom and blocks waiting for new bits when there is low entropy...
12:39<efudd>that'd use no CPU, would be a "slow reader" and be perfectly normal whilst upping the load average
12:39<amcnabb>The system is noticably sluggish, though.
12:39<efudd>that could be.. something else. :0
12:39<@mikegrb>normally yeah, but in this case he's just doing too much io
12:39<@mikegrb>it's effecting the host io wise
12:40<efudd>I'd venture to say that your host IO is overloaded
12:40<efudd>yes that
12:40<efudd>so you are ARTIFICIaLLY being slowed down in IO
12:40<efudd>you can't even HIT your io limiter
12:40<efudd>I'm going to shut up now. :)
12:40<@mikegrb>he would be hitting the io limiter if someone else complained
12:40<@mikegrb>but it's not too bad yet
12:41<@mikegrb>mainly just affecting him
12:41<efudd>nod. numbers make sense now.
12:41<amcnabb>I didn't quite catch the explanation (sorry).
12:42<efudd>you are overruning the host IO.. or soemthing.

15:34<@mikegrb>issuing a boot from the website is what got it up
15:35<Exelius>One more question.. I'm very familiar with centos/redhat4, so if I edit the config files for it, will they be overwritten by the web management app?
15:35<@mikegrb>no
15:35<Exelius>ok great
15:35<@mikegrb>the onlty times your filesystem are touched are:
15:35<@mikegrb>1) initial deployment to edit /etc/shadow to set the root password
15:36<@mikegrb>2) on boot if the disable updatedb helper is enabled, it will chmod a-x the cron script that runs updatedb
15:36<Exelius>so packages are installed via yum, etc?
15:36<@caker>fixed
15:36<@mikegrb>3) when you move to xen, a script will change the devices nodes in /etc/fstab and the console in /etc/inittab
15:36<@mikegrb>right everything is done like a normal system
15:37<Exelius>ok

15:47<Exelius>one more question :) Would there be issues compiling a 2.6 kernel? or any custom kernel for that matter?
15:51<@caker>Exelius: yes, you can only run kernels provided by Linode

23:35<@caker>kevin: do you have any weird admin application installed? The kind that takes over your machine (like: ISPConfig?)
23:36[~]cmantito makes a note to remove 'kevin' from his hilight list ;)
23:36<kevin>no, I don't. I only have apache/mysql and a email server running.
23:37<kevin>I can't get it via ssh and when I log in to the console, it said my linode is not running... but it is shown as running in the web control panel.
23:37|-|WebUser [~ac987e2a@webuser.linode.com] has joined #linode
23:38<@caker>kevin: you have two Lish sessions going
23:38<@caker>kevin: notice how the message says "Linode isn't running or another sesssion is active" ? :)
23:38<@caker>kevin: use the "kill" lish command then reconnect
23:38<kevin>ok.
23:39<@caker>heh
23:39<@caker>now you're in your console...
23:39<@caker>kill won't do much as a username
23:39<kevin>I am in the console where I got a "komynet.com login:" prompt
23:40<@caker>now type: root :)
23:40<@caker>and your root pass
23:40<@caker>see if that works
23:40<kevin>no, it does not work.
23:40<kevin>I disabled root login on my ssh...
23:40<@caker>kevin: have you used Lish to login to the machine before?
23:40<@caker>kevin: that's not ssh
23:40<@caker>kevin: that's the console (different beast)
23:40<kevin>yes... it worked fine.
23:41<@caker>hmm
23:41<@caker>what does /etc/nologin do?
23:42<@mikegrb>prevents non-root users from logging in
23:42<@caker>WHERE?
23:42<@mikegrb>one of the last init scripts executed is supposed to rm in
23:42<kevin>I think that was some script that I got off some debian package..
23:42<@caker>whoops, caps
23:42<@caker>ok
23:42|-|WebUser [~ac987e2a@webuser.linode.com] has quit [Quit: CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)]
23:42<@caker>I think that's his problem
23:43|-|fake [~fake@fake.us] has joined #linode
23:43<@caker>kevin: edit your config profile, enable "init=/bin/bash", reboot
23:43<@caker>kevin: log into Lish, run: "mount -o remount,rw /"
23:43<@caker>kevin: then: rm /etc/nologin
23:44<kevin>ok. I will try.
23:44<@caker>kevin: undo the setting, reboot, see if that fixes it
23:46|-|acox [~5681671b@webuser.linode.com] has quit [Quit: CGI:IRC (Session timeout)]
23:47<@caker>kevin: my bad
23:48<@caker>kevin: try now, sorry
23:48<kevin>ok, thx.
23:49<@caker>kevin: ok wait there .. I'll search some more
23:49<kevin>I did the mount command and when I do the rm command, it said file not found
23:50<@caker>kevin: cd /etc/; grep "please wait" -r .
23:51<@caker>kevin: cd /etc/; grep "please wait" -r . <--- period
23:51<@caker>(I can see your console, btw)
23:52<@caker>kevin: grep "/etc/nologin" -r .
23:53<@caker>kevin: grep DELAYLOGIN -r .
23:53<@caker>ok
23:53<@caker>kevin: edit rc5.d/S99bootmisc.sh, and change DELAYLOGIN=yes to no
23:54<kevin>ok.
23:54<@caker>kevin: poweroff, set the config back to normal and reboot
23:54<@caker>bah
23:55<@caker>kevin: you might need to do what we just did over again -- it didn't sync the filesystems
23:55<kevin>ok.... is that a problem on my end? I am not an sysadmin expert...so.... thanks for the help!
23:55<@caker>kevin: well, poweroff or reboot might have done it
23:55<@caker>kevin: as in the commands "poweroff" :)
23:56<@caker>kevin: no biggie .. just boot back up, verify that /etc/rc5.d/S99bootmisc.sh has DELAYLOGIN set to no, then run "sync"
23:56<kevin>ok, I just boot up the linode

23:58<@caker>kevin: it didn't write that file out
23:58<kevin>how can I quit that prompt? "komynet.com: login"?
23:59<@caker>I'll reboot the node back into init=/bin/bash
