15:32<Nigel>i was gonna say, i'm on host12, and last i checked it was working
15:40<Nigel>staff: I'm just wondering if the problems with host15 and host10 could strike the other HE hosts on similar hardware?

16:41<@linbot>New news from forums: Outage: host15 (Accounts moved to host62) in System and Network Status <http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2546>
16:44<Nigel>is there any explaination for a file to suddenly 'empty'?
16:44<Nigel>*explanation
16:44<efudd>you ask the strangest non-questions.
16:45<efudd>Please tell us more.
16:45<Nigel>efudd, i have a problem on my linode, where a pid file, either decides to delete itself (which i can't understand how), or just empties itself, it's kind of werid
16:46<efudd>The contents of a file do not randomly "empty themselves".
16:47<Nigel>thats my understanding to, but it happens in two different programs, that i've had no history of this weridness happening
16:47<@linbot>New news from forums: Fedora Core 4 Support? in Feature Request/Bug Report <http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1915>
16:47<Nigel>hmmm, might try and install them locally and see if i have that problem, just wondering if it could be UML weridness
16:53<@linbot>New news from forums: Redundant server on Linode? in General Discussion <http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2525>
17:02<Eman>so... how would you go about downloading the root_fs from a linode?
17:03<warewolf>Nigel: is your filesystem full?
17:03<Nigel>warewolf, not that i'm aware of
17:03<Nigel>let me check though
17:05<Nigel>warewolf, linode:~# df -h | grep "/data"
17:05<Nigel>/dev/ubdc 695M 325M 371M 47% /data
17:05<Nigel>the root fs is at 68%
17:05<warewolf>okay
17:06<warewolf>are you starting your program that writes the pid multiple times?
17:06<Nigel>well, i have a crontab that checks the pid file, and checks that the program is still up
17:06<Nigel>although, the script uses ps to gather that, i'm gonna make it read /proc directly
17:07<warewolf>why are you reinventing the wheel?
17:07<Nigel>i'm actually considering coding a mutex or whatever they are called to stop multiple executions
17:11<Nigel>that or i should assume it never goes down
17:12[~]efudd snickers
17:28<encode>mmm snickers

20:06<warewolf>caker/mikegrb/tasurao- is someone (or me) thrashing on host47?
20:06<warewolf>my load average seems artificially high

20:07<efudd>or something. :)
