12:55<emcnabb>I'm trying to access lish with 'ssh username@host11.linode.com', but I'm getting "ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host". Any ideas about what's wrong?

13:00<erikh>emcnabb: either one of two things happened
13:01<erikh>your side is preventing the connection, or their side is
13:01<erikh>(generally via tcp wrappers)
13:01<emcnabb>don't think it's my side (I can ssh into other hosts just fine)
13:01<emcnabb>-v doesn't give much more info
13:02<erikh>if you failed a certain number of logins, they will block your IP for a short amount of time. that time resets when you attempt another login
13:03<emcnabb>erikh: don't think that happened

13:03<erikh>well, it's definitely tcp wrappers blocking on one end of the connection.

13:04<emcnabb>caker: mikegrb: why was ticket 20923 closed?
13:07|-|besonen_mobile [~besonen_m@wall.pacinfo.com] has joined #linode
13:20<@caker>emcnabb: not sure why it was closed -- I guess because of the inactivity
13:20<@caker>emcnabb: coincidentially, npmr hit a similar BUG yesterday.
13:21<@caker>emcnabb: I showed it to Jeff months ago (likely your stack trace) and he needs to be able to reproduce it and/or see a UML process in that state to debug it...
13:21<npmr>eh?
13:22<@caker>BUG: warning at kernel/irq/manage.c:276/free_irq()
13:22<@caker>...
13:23<emcnabb>caker: ok, just curious
13:23<npmr>emcnabb had that same thing?
13:23<@caker>looks that way
13:23<npmr>nuts
13:23<emcnabb>npmr: I've had it happen fairly frequently over the last several months
13:23<@caker>this was back in July, though
13:23<npmr>emcnabb, oh really?
13:23<@caker>emcnabb: same/similar trace?
13:24<npmr>emcnabb, care to compare notes?
13:24<emcnabb>yeah. I tried to ssh in a bit a go to check but I'm getting "Connection closed by remote host"
13:24<@caker>emcnabb: ok, lemme fix that -- one sec
13:24<@caker>done
13:25<emcnabb>thanks
13:36<gpd>what is the likely cause of a machine giving 'Out of Memory: Killed process
13:36<gpd>not enought swap?
13:36<gpd>it started killing various processes -- mysqld and apache
13:37<gpd>[this is not a linode - but an old desktop that runs sarge]
13:37<@caker>gpd: older kernels (and even recent ones) still have issues with OOM getting confused
13:37<@caker>gpd: meaning, even if there is free swap, I've still seen the OOM killer kick in
13:38<@caker>gpd: but yeah, generally OOM is caused by lack of VM (mem+swap)
13:38<gpd>thanks caker -- I should probably setup monit or something on that machine
13:39<gpd>and find out what caused the OOM
13:43<gpd>does the fact that OOM-killer killed mysqld mean that it was the likely cause of the loss of memory?
13:43<@caker>I don't think so
13:43<@caker>it just picked the best candidate (no idea what criteria -- possibly most memory used, what it decided as least harmful to kill, etc)
13:43<gpd>anywhere else i should look other than /var/log/syslog for clues?
13:44<guinea-pig>top?
13:45<@caker>dmesg, if you didn't reboot yet
13:45<guinea-pig>if the problem app is still running
13:45<gpd>no - it was rebooted :( the local 'support person' said the keyboard was unresponsive
13:45<guinea-pig>well
13:46<guinea-pig>on debian, dmesg logs to /var/log/kern.log
13:46<gpd>but they probably didn't try sysrq even - windows people !
13:47<guinea-pig>/var/log/kern.log and /var/log/dmesg ... but /var/log/dmesg rotates on boot, kern doesn't

13:50<guinea-pig>so you managed to be lucky for 36 months
13:50<guinea-pig>hehe
13:50<guinea-pig>these things will happen. it's just a question of how often, and how severe
13:51<gpd>so I should increase swap size and cross fingers? or are there other configuration issues to look at?
13:51<guinea-pig>check other logfiles for errors around that time, maybe?
13:51<gpd>postfix-mgr stopped just before the first OOM-killer -- but nothing else
13:52<guinea-pig>*shrug*
13:52<guinea-pig>are you monitoring how much swap you use normally?
13:52|-|afv-13 [~afv@vc-196-207-32-253.3g.vodacom.co.za] has quit []
13:53<guinea-pig>there's some mrtg scripts on the forum somewhere that help with that. there are other options
13:54<guinea-pig>http://parsed.net/stats/mrtg/ <-- my linode
13:55<gpd>ok - cool - thanks guinea-pig
13:55<guinea-pig>yeah
13:55<guinea-pig>before you increase the swapfile, see if that's the problem :)
13:55<guinea-pig>monitor monitor monitor
13:55[~]guinea-pig has to sleep no... third shift yay
13:55<gpd>from looking in the past it normally doesn't use any swap -- so there must have been something weird
13:55<guinea-pig>now
13:55<guinea-pig>yeah
13:56<guinea-pig>but also
13:56<guinea-pig>there may be a regular event (cron-related?) that happens at a certain time that needs more swap...
13:56<guinea-pig>and you just don't notice it
13:56<guinea-pig>i've no idea
13:56<gpd>is there a tool that stores top to a file
13:56<guinea-pig>no idea
13:57<gpd>oh well -- thanks anyway

15:10<Nigel>brc, I have no idea who their resellers are etc, just get a trial, find a reseller, and buy the full copy
15:10<Nigel>brc, trial means you can set it up while you find a reseller
15:11<Nigel>brc, also, i heard that the cpanel install can use a lot of io_tokens, so if you do the trial first, you can make sure it will work on your LN

18:25<timber>hey dudes
18:26<timber>I'm curious about something
18:27<timber>on my CPU usage graph, my linode is peaking at around 70% during the day
18:27<timber>and it's steadily increasing
18:28<timber>so, if it hits 100%, what happens to the site?
18:28<timber>does it show an error
18:28<@caker>why would it?
18:28<timber>or slow down
18:28<timber>I don't know
18:28<timber>an error like "This site has used it's maximum CPU allowance
18:28<@caker>you're able to use as much CPU as you can, as long as no one else needs CPU. In that case, it's shared
18:29<timber>or something like that
18:29<timber>right
18:29<timber>but if someone hits the site and there's no available CPU, would that user still get his page loaded?
18:30<timber>slowly
18:30<timber>but still loaded?
18:30<tierra>It will slow down though if you really are using that much CPU.
18:30<internat>u realise u have 150mhz (linode 100 i think) garanteeded, and then after that if u need more and no one is doing anything u can have it right?
18:30<tierra>does top show about the same kind of numbers for CPU usage?
18:30<@caker>internat: that's what we advertise, but it's actually much higher (double), fwiw
18:31<internat>awsome :)
18:31<internat>there all on dual cpu boxes arent they
18:31<efudd>Wheee.
18:31<@caker>internat: yeah, except host1 and host2
18:31<efudd>host1/host2 have been up since 37bc tho
