00:24<thread>um yea it doesn't look like we're losing any packets....
00:24<thread>nifty prog tho
00:25<gpd>well if it isn't i/o and you have low load and free memory...
00:25<gpd>not sure what else it could be
00:25<gpd>what is that site powered by?
00:25<gpd>does it have cacheing ?
00:26<thread>typo, yeah it should be served right up static
00:26<thread>maybe it's just my network over here
00:26<thread>my friend was also slow, but that's just one other person

00:27<gpd>if you have it...
00:27<thread>on the linode or my client?
00:28<thread>someone else says it's fast
00:28<gpd>either way just point it at your linode
00:28<gpd>and look at top
00:29|-|Antitribu [~simon@] has joined #linode
00:29<gpd>it may also be that you have a thrasher on your host
00:29<thread>yeah that's what it was last time
00:30<thread>but maybe it's not as bad as I thought right now
00:30<thread>it is generally slow, though... to do operations...
00:30<thread>it's the lowest plan, I'm sure I'm crammed with a zillion other people
00:30<gpd>what sort of operations?
00:30|-|Antitribu [~simon@] has left #linode []
00:30<thread>intensive stuff... like using portage
00:30<gpd>ya i have a 120 now
00:31<gpd>you could always switch to debian|ubuntu [shock]
00:32<thread>that wouldn't really solve the thrashing issue, tho
00:33<@caker>host looks fine, btw

00:38<@caker>thread: ping me next time and I'll look, but otherwise no complaints from host55 users; lot of free RAM on the machine (in fact, more than 50% free/cached)
00:38<thread>caker: alright, thanks

07:20<encode>after purchasing more disk, do i have to reboot for my linode to be able to access it?
07:30<warewolf>shut down, and then resize via the linode control panel
07:30<warewolf>then boot.
07:31<encode>so theres no way for caker or mikegrb to do what is described in

07:35<warewolf>they may be able to
07:35<warewolf>are you bent on not rebooting?
07:37<warewolf>you're not going to have very much downtime
07:37<warewolf>the resize for adding space is near instant

09:47<warewolf>last host 52
09:48<warewolf>I could have sworn linbot said something
09:48<warewolf>I think mikegrb handled it
09:48<warewolf>whatever it iwas
09:48<warewolf>no, that was 57.
09:49<anderiv>the whole host seemed to be down for about 30 mins and then it came back response, though, to the ticket I submitted. Oh well - it's working now.

11:22<@mikegrb>anderiv: yeah, lemme look
11:24<@mikegrb>anderiv: no reboots so I'm guesssing it was a networking blip, could have also been a thrasher that caker throttled

12:43<andrewtaylor>thanks - I did check the forum, but I see it's just been posted. Thanks again.
12:43<andrewtaylor>could this be the same problem that host39 was having?
12:44<alnr>I still cant ssh
12:44<andrewtaylor>i can get to lish but no screen as yet
12:44<@mikegrb>linodes come up one at a time
12:44<andrewtaylor>oh right, I'll give it an hour or so

14:05<gpd>I am now getting attacked every 2-3 minutes instead of every 10 seconds
14:06<@mikegrb>you can adjust the values
14:06<gpd>yeah true dat
14:07<@mikegrb>I'm still seeing only attacks with multiple attempts per second lasting 30-45 seconds or so
14:07<gpd>or i should probably just turn off *all* password access
14:07<@mikegrb>I do that too
14:07<@mikegrb>I just use the iptables foo to keep the log files uncluttered
14:08<gpd>so if password is off why does it even tell you in the logs... ?
14:08<gpd>i would have thought it would just be silent
14:09<@mikegrb>it's still an authentication failure

15:57<djayc>caker: It's almost like networking is down or something..
15:57<@caker>oh yeah, I remember that -- it's a bug with long usernames, fixed in our new version but I haven't deployed it to older hosts yet
15:57<djayc>caker: That's ok.. the real problem is that my box seems to have no network connectivity all of a sudden
15:58<djayc>caker: sudo seems to lock up when I run it, but i think it might just be trying to reverse whatever hostname lish connects to the box with
15:58<@caker>djayc: run in your console for me: ifconfig && route -n

15:59<djayc>anyways, let me run that, one sec

16:01<@caker>djayc: I can see it already, btw (I can tail your console log)
16:01<djayc>ah ok
16:02<@caker>djayc: weird -- issue a reboot, should fix it
16:02<djayc>iptables -L showed nothing
16:02<djayc>I reran my firewall script and it seems fine no
16:02<djayc>er now
16:03<@caker>yeah, and never mind my reboot comment -- config looks fine on the host (firewall, interfaces, etc)
16:03<djayc>I kept getting dropped FTP connections so I flushed.. forgot my default was drop
16:03<djayc>I'm trying to upload a webapp to GoDaddy, and it keeps killing my FTP half way through or so
16:04<djayc>my bad ;-)
16:04<djayc>I'm assuming it's an issue on godaddys side
16:04<djayc>but I forgot I had cleared my iptable rules
16:07<djayc>anyways, thanks
16:29<gpd>how would you split a file into two halves or after x occurances of a regex from a command line - or should i give up and use perl?

18:18[~]mikegrb normally prefers thin crust though
18:18<@mikegrb>appearantly they are a pizzaria in california
18:18<@mikegrb>but make frozen pizzas for the supermarket now

19:10<cvera>i have some questions about smtp
19:11<cvera>from a technical point of view, when i use an external smtp server it mean that i REALLY bypass the server of my ISP?
19:12<efudd>what an interesting question.
19:12<efudd>99% right. :)
19:12<cvera>but all the communications in fact go through my ISP server?
19:13<cvera>i.e i continue loading the ISP with my traffic or the traffic is on another way?
19:16<cvera>so whay should i wish use a smtp server like 1st smtp server or similar?

19:33<@mikegrb>lucca: we will be eating there for dinner on the 3rd as we will be passing through a town with one
19:34<@mikegrb>if it's half as good as it looks, we will probably make the 3 hour journey once a month or so to dine there with a friend that's about an hour away on the other side
19:47<lucca>they're a little pricey, but it's been good food and service each time I've gone.
19:53<@mikegrb>we saw the frozen pizzas at the grocery store, got one of each type they had as they all looked good to us

20:27[~]Battousai would
20:27<Battousai>but that's because it's disney world

20:28[~]fo0bar prints up a dozen full-color CDs and plans to bring a few generic blank CDs just in case
20:28<@mikegrb>but I don't know what you would hand out there
20:28<@mikegrb>maybe digital cameras
20:29<fo0bar>BTW, I found a craft protective spray that seals the top of inkjet-printed CDs, so if you get them wet (or have sweaty fingers), you don't ruin the top
20:29<fo0bar>the added benefit is everything is completely dry in 1 hours, vs 2-5 days :)
20:30<fo0bar>the downside is the spray stinks, gives you a decent buzz (not the good kind), and has big warnings about giving you cancer
