00:28<encode>hmm, webalizer seems to depend on the following packages:
00:28<encode>dmidecode laptop-detect libfreetype6 libgd2-noxpm libx11-6 libxau6 libxpm4 x11-common
00:28<encode>why the heck does webalizer need laptop-detect????

01:33<prb>My host appears hung; anyone else having similar issues? (no HTTP, no ssh, no response to "reboot" via console)
01:33<@mikegrb>wrong datacenter

01:34<@mikegrb>but there are still failure points
01:34<AnMaster>Host servers host1 through host8, and host27 and up are located at ThePlanet's Dallas, Texas data-center facility. From there, our switches connect to ThePlanet's core network via multiple 100Mbps Fast Ethernet links (using HSRP), again for load balancing and redundancy.
01:34<AnMaster>and this is host59
01:34<@mikegrb>yes, that is a bit old
01:34<AnMaster>"Host servers host9 through host26 are located at Hurricane Electric's Freemont datacenter."
01:34<@mikegrb>host56 and up are at HE
01:34<@mikegrb>the didn't exist at that time
01:35<@mikegrb>apologies for the confusion
01:35<prb>Answers my Q -- I'm on 57.
01:35<AnMaster>(maybe time to update it when you fixed the problem)
01:38<NigelJ>hmmm, 9 through 26 are on a different HE datacenter or something?
01:38<NigelJ>(compared to 56+)

02:20<warewolf>oh lovely.
02:21<warewolf>someone who reads the linode planet (rss aggregator) sent me fan-mail.
02:22[~]tierra raises his hand
02:22<tierra>it was me ;)
02:23<warewolf>1) how did you find my gmail address
02:23|-|lucca [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:23<warewolf>2) I host my own images 8-)
02:24<warewolf>3) ok fine, I'll frob my anti-hotlinking to allow the linode planet site
02:24<tierra>1) it's on the front page of your website
02:24<tierra>2) I was making reference for the sites your blog is aggregated on
02:25<tierra>3) excellent, cuz that's just kind of annoying while reading planet linode
02:27<tierra>I was actually more annoyed that everywhere I could find your post, the image was replaced, and it was making me very curious what the image was
02:35|-|lucca [] has joined #linode
02:35<warewolf>tierra: go to, and click the little mushroom on the bottom right.
02:36<warewolf>tierra: that wallpaper is the entire reason why I have that anti-hotlinking config set up. People all over myspace were using it as the background of their myspace. So I fixed them right up :)

17:04<fo0bar>caker: while I've personally had no experience with them, in my corner of the world, "procurve" is a swear word
17:05<@caker>fo0bar: cisco elitists?
17:06<fo0bar>caker: maybe, but I've just heard a lot of horror stories about HP gear crapping out
17:07<encode>im no network engineer, so i cant really offer any useful info
17:08<encode>other than at my previous job at a multinational, the network gear was all nortel
17:08<@caker>hmm .. 2960G-48TC is slightly more expensive, but less than I expected
17:08<iggy>I've never used the 2848, but we have a couple of clients that use procurve gear and have never had any trouble
17:09<@caker> shows only $600 difference in price
17:10<fo0bar>most of my experience has been with cisco. while I could name a page full of cisco gripes, I like the common interface for (nearly) all products
17:10<@caker> <-- nice product page
17:10<fo0bar>if you've used a cisco switch, you can likely easily configure a cisco router
17:10[~]iggy coughs *pix*
17:11<fo0bar>iggy: ("nearly") ;)
17:11<fo0bar>there's also catos, which I don't think is being used on any cisco gear anymore
17:12<fo0bar>and the CSS stuff *looks* like IOS, but isn't really and has suble differences
17:12<iggy>these dual-purpose ports seem to be popping up on everything these days... not a fan, especially when they don't autoconfigure themselves
17:13[~]iggy flips off prosafe switches
17:13<fo0bar>the pix would be a great firewall/router if only they got rid of the concept of "levels"
17:13<fo0bar>just let me set up interfaces and define ACLs between them, damnit
17:16<@caker>fo0bar: have you ever seen a mac/address table full on a switch?
17:17<fo0bar>caker: nope, but I know it happens
17:17<@caker>curious what the effect is. I'd imaging lots of ARPing, but not anything noticeable unless there's a LOT more MACs than the table size
17:18<Eman>too many macs? wouldnt it start to just act like a huge hub at that point?
17:18<@caker>broadcasting everything? likely.
17:18<iggy>don't most switches allow something like 16k mac entries?
17:19<@caker>that $3,500 gige cisco switch has an 8k table size
17:19<@caker>the HP is 16k entries
17:20<@caker>my (oldish) ciscos are around 4k
17:20<iggy>still, 4k clients on one network doesn't sound like the best idea to me
17:21<Eman>16k entries... that'd be one bigass laggy network
17:21<@caker>But that's only 400 Linode hosts and 40 nodes on each!!
17:22<iggy>that still sounds like a bad idea
17:22<@caker>I kid

17:45<encode>hmm, mac/address tables being full
17:45<encode>that gives me an idea
17:45<encode>the network in our customer's DC is soo slow
17:45<encode>and its got heaps of equipment in there
17:45<encode>maybe the mac table is full
17:45<encode>its 100mbit switched
17:46<encode>but we dont see anywhere near that performance internal to the datacentre
