00:11<gecco>hey guys, I'm sending godaddy to hell and want to switch my dns in to linode, I've exported my zone file unix style in godaddy, but I do not see where I can import it into linode, and the import from dns server does not work with godaddy (no surprise)
00:11<gecco>any ideas?

00:12<kyhwana>Ankels: so read your mongodb files and try to figure out if it's atually listening on localhost port 27017 etc.. also "sudo netstat -plnt" should show it listening if it's up
00:12<@mcintosh>gecco: perhaps this..
00:13<Ankels>ubuntu@localhost:~$ sudo netstat -plnt Active Internet connections (only servers) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0* LISTEN 3082/mongod tcp 0 0* LISTEN 3105/nginx tcp 0 0* LISTEN 3061/
00:13<gecco>mcintosh thats awesome, thanks!
00:14<@mcintosh>no problem
00:14<gecco>so, one request, any chance we could get a text file upload or import a zone file, maybe one day? I mean, how hard could that be?
00:15<gecco>there is also no copy or clone button, so handling massive DNS changes is still a pain, it would be nice to copy paste them
00:15<gecco>as I have some standard templates that I use a lot, and that would make setting things up easier
00:16<millisa>there's a 'clone existing zone' down at the bottom of the dns manager
00:16<millisa>could you use a template zone with that?
00:17<dwfreed>(fun fact: you can create zones in the DNS Manager you don't own, just at least make it something nobody else is likely to own either)
00:18<dwfreed>eg, I have '' as a zone for playing around with
00:18<Eugene>Hi, howard hughes!
00:18<gecco>ah yes, that makes a lot of sense now, so I can do that crudely
00:19<gecco>thanks millisa and dw!
00:19<Ankels>Hi kyhwana
00:19<dwfreed>!point millisa
00:19<linbot>dwfreed: Point given to millisa. (15)
00:19<gecco>now, I have to decide if I'll do DNS in linode or rackspace, because rackspace does provide free DNS
00:19<millisa>dwfreed: my dnszones...
00:19<gecco>Are there any limits to the amount of A records I can have under a domain? or any limits in DNS I should be aware of?
00:19<kyhwana>Ankels: sigh. So it looks like mongodb is listening on localhost port 27017 already.
00:19<Peng>dwfreed: I have a couple .test zones
00:20*Peng adds JUST IN CASE
00:20<Eugene>I've been playing with the AWS Route 53 registration API
00:21<Zimsky>┐( ಠ‿ ಠ;)┌
00:21<dwfreed>gecco: none you're likely to hit (and they're shear technical limits, not arbitrary administrative ones)
00:21<Zimsky>gecco: the size of the drive/memory on the box
00:21<gecco>any reason why or why not anyone might prefer linode DNS to rackspace Cloud DNS, or vice versa?
00:21<Ankels>hi kyhwana
00:22<Eugene>I have alcoholic peaches
00:22<Zimsky>gecco: depends how you use it
00:22<Eugene>This is probably not a good combination.
00:22<Ankels>not even start the app .. but when access the domain it showing 504 tomeout error
00:23<gecco>just basic tell this IP to point to this A record, none of my shit is HA or elastic, my needs are very small
00:25<kyhwana>Ankels: right, so you need to go through your logs since startup to figure out why it's not working
00:26<millisa>gecco: a linode dns 'con' might be their quarter hour publish schedule
00:26<linbot>The DNS Manager reloads your zones every quarter hour. If you just added/changed a record you'll need to wait until the next refresh before the changes will be reflected by Linode's nameservers.
00:26<millisa>that's probably the biggest disadvantage I run into
00:26<millisa>(compared to rackspace cloud dns anyways)
00:26<gecco>oh snap
00:26<dwfreed>which can be mostly bypassed with slave zones!
00:26<gecco>I never thought of that, Godaddys is pretty instandamntanious
00:26<millisa>yeah, there's definitely work arounds for it
00:27<gecco>What linode should do, as far as a marketing stunt is concerned, is just get out there and say "FREE CLOUD DNS!" and bump up their dns gui to be better than Rackspace's (wouldn't take much)
00:28<millisa>i like the linode's interface better. lots less wasted whitespace
00:28<gecco>and... of course make the update schedule faster, so things are on par, then get some customers, maybe do a little action
00:29<FluffyFoxeh>wasting space is the new hotness
00:29<gecco> started charging for some of their dns services a while back, now they want a fortune, and after oracle bought them, prices seem to continue to go up, disenfranchising the little guy (linode caters to the little guy) so... I think they could pickup some market share there
00:29<millisa>they only show about a dozen or so records and give you this scrollbox in the middle of the window. there's more empty area on the page than data
00:29<gecco>and kick digital ocean a little bit too
00:30<millisa>speaking of DO - they were harping about their new monitoring today
00:30<Ankels>Hi kyhwana, i raised the ticket in linode... [7769487] our sites not working
00:30<FluffyFoxeh>Lol millisa I got that email
00:30<dwfreed>the update schedule is a technical limitation of the current implementation; it will hopefully go away at some point
00:31<dwfreed>FluffyFoxeh: I didn't \o/
00:31<gecco>interesting, I'll have to check that out
00:31<gecco>alright, thanks everyone for your help, have a nice evening or day, where ever your at
00:31<Peng>Though slave zones can update in a couple seconds
00:31<millisa>it's linked up at the top of their main page if you want to look at it. it's nothing exciting. it's mostly a good thing for them
00:32-!-gecco [] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
00:32<kyhwana>Ankels: I don't work for linode. This sounds like an issue inside your linode, thus it's your responsibility etc.
00:33<dwfreed>millisa: yeah, it's basically longview + emails/slack
00:33<Ankels>How can i contact linode?
00:33<dwfreed>also, something something curl | sh

00:33<Ankels>cant able to ping ip
00:34<kyhwana>Ankels: so connect via lish?
00:35<millisa>the fact that it pings just fine after a reboot and doesn't start timing out until a few minutes after your reboot is odd
00:36<kyhwana>something something firewall or OOM or something probably

00:40-!-Rudy is now known as Guest570
00:40-!-RudyValencia is now known as Rudy
00:40<millisa>that's disconcerting. I'm pretty sure I'm connected to this through a dallas linode.
00:40<dwfreed>considering I'm connected to IRC from a Dallas Linode, Dallas is not down
00:40<millisa>GET OUT OF MY HEAD!
00:40<Rudy>hm then seems to be a problem just after Comcast Business.
00:41<Ikaros>Not surprising.
00:41<Ikaros>They always fail.
00:41<dwfreed>It's Comcastic!
00:41<Ikaros>Sorry, Comcast-hater
00:41<Rudy>Comcast residential is working
00:41<Ikaros>But yeah probably local ISP/routing issue more than an issue on Linode's side of things
00:42<Rudy>I have a residential connection also because I work for them
00:42<millisa>quick get the pitchforks!
00:42<Ikaros>Got an MTR?
00:42<millisa>if you give an IP on your side, we could probably take a better guess at where it's choking
00:42<Ikaros>That too
00:42<Rudy>doing a traceroute right now
00:43<Rudy>the last hop that succeeds is []
00:43<MrPPS>yeah my one dallas box is fine
00:43<Ikaros>Wonder if it's still in Comcast's network after that.
00:44<Rudy>seems to be just the business connection

00:45<Rudy>and the full mtr link is failing to load for me

00:47-!-Ankels [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:47<Ikaros>Routing failure at some point I think, at least inbound-wise.
00:47<Rudy>this is what my tracert shows
00:47<Ikaros>And I could assume it's probably dropping still within Comcast's network given the reverse.
00:47<dwfreed>seems to be working from the Linode I connect from
00:48<Rudy>well my bouncer came back
00:48<millisa>yeah, looks better now:
00:48-!-mode/#linode [+l 363] by ChanServ
00:48<Rudy>running another tracert
00:48<Ikaros>Could be a Comcast business routing blip then...?
00:49<Rudy>I work doing residential billing and tech support
00:49<Rudy> <- currently
00:50<Ikaros>My old ISP would dick with my routing too when I used to have a Dallas-based Linode (I live in the Dallas area). There was a time where the routing took me on a literal grand tour of the country before dropping me back into Dallas via SoftLayer.
00:50<Ikaros>A RTT that should have been somewhere around 2-5 ms for me was up closer to 80ms
00:50<Rudy>I only have business because residential can't have static IPs
00:50*Ikaros nods
00:51<Ikaros>Looks like it's back for you?
00:51<Rudy>the other residential connection I have is provided to me at a discount so I took advantage of it
00:51<Rudy>gimme a sec to go back to the bouncer :)

00:52<Ikaros>Peng: Mine went from Dallas to Atlanta, to KC, to LAX, and back into Dallas, just to get to my old Dallas node
00:52<Ikaros>ISP NOCs won't do shit unless the RTT as a result exceeds a threshold
00:53<Guest570>there we go
00:53-!-Guest570 is now known as Rudy
00:53<Rudy>oops haha
00:53<Ikaros>Think my ASN path length was something like 5?
00:53<Ikaros>Maybe 6
00:53<Ikaros>When it's usually 2
00:53<Rudy>now I'm whole again
00:54<Peng>My route goes Atlanta -> Ashburn -> Atlanta -> Orlando. :(
00:54<Peng>It's upsetting but not actually a big deal
00:54<Ikaros>Well don't celebrate yet, for all you know Comcast's network in the area could go "blip" again.
00:55<Zimsky>ur a blip
00:57<Ikaros>And Rudy forgive my extreme hatred of that ISP. All the horror stories I've heard, seen, the experiences I've heard from friends who were unfortunate enough to only be left with them as their only way to the internet...yeah
00:57<Rudy>some areas have no viable competitors
00:58<Eugene>No ur a bilip
00:58<millisa>they did just do this: . . I'm assuming they were confused.
00:58<Ikaros>That and I have a general tendency to hate unnecessarily-big-money-grubbing-conglomerates that tend to shun their customers more often than not just because they're so big.
00:59<Rudy>I work for them and we're working on the customer experience
00:59<Ikaros>Oh I know.
01:00<Eugene>Collecting & selling customer data without intercepting piracy makes you no longer qualify for the DMCA safe harbor provisions, which is a huge administrative cost
01:00<Ikaros>The thing about this country is, customers of any company will raise a huge fuss if they even REMOTELY sense they're being mistreated.
01:00<Ikaros>Especially nowadays
01:00<Eugene>Its the same reason you can't save traffic data as an ISP: you're just a pipe
01:01<Rudy>we actually respect customer privacy

01:01-!-mode/#linode [+l 361] by ChanServ
01:02<nate><Rudy> I work for them and we're working on the customer experience <-- Comcast has been "working on the customer experience" for like 7 years
01:02<Ikaros>It's rough for a company as big as Comcast is though. You can't expect it overnight.
01:02<Rudy>there have been big improvements
01:02<Eugene>I deal with Comcast Business / Enterprise at $DAYJOB. They're fine people, you just have to knwo that everything is a system and it takes time.
01:02<Ikaros>And people are always going to complain mind you
01:03<nate>Rudy: General popular opinion and impression of the Comcast-overall company would kinda disagree though lol
01:03<Rudy>service call windows used to be 4-6 hours, now they're 2
01:03<Eugene>There's a different SLA for different services, and the home customers just get screwed.
01:03<Ikaros>You can 'work on customer service' all you want, and sure you'll make improvements. But people will still just complain because they want to smear them due to past reputation
01:03<Rudy>Eugene: what do you mean?
01:04<Ikaros>As much as I hate that company right now, I know when there's an effort to improve things. I don't see/hear as many horror stories now.
01:04<Ikaros>So if that's something to your credit, Rudy...:P
01:04<Eugene>The more you pay for a pipe, the quicker your response time is, on average

01:04<Rudy>Ikaros: I wouldn't have went to work for the Comcast of seven years ago
01:04<Eugene>Or the likelihood that it goes down to begin with. We've never had an issue with our very-expensive fiber lines
01:04<Eugene>Because.... fiber!

01:07<Eugene>Trees are a bigger enemy, and that is solidly "not my problem"
01:07<Rudy>tree roots impeding on the fiber?
01:07<Eugene>Had packet loss one day, but it cleared up before the end of the phoen call
01:08<Rudy>I can understand that business class has a higher SLA priority
01:09<Rudy>that SLA makes it worth the extra money to have business class, along with the static IP
01:09<Eugene>The biggest benefit I've encountered is that you don't need to wait in a phone queue or get transferred. The person you talk to can figure it out, or puts you on hold while they find somebody and hands it off cleanly
01:14<Rudy>we have some neat troubleshooting guides that go through various steps to resolve the issue
01:15<Rudy>if it needs to be escalated the troubleshooting guide creates a ticket and directs the call to a higher level fix agency, or if a trouble call is needed it creates one
01:16<millisa>sounds better than uverse lately. they stopped routing one of my blocks a couple months back and I couldn't get out of the 'reboot your router' queue.
01:18<Rudy>we still have to upsell/add LOBs
01:18<millisa>telling them that my ipv6 was working, it was only ipv4 that wasn't working was wrong on my part. i don't know what I was thinking.
01:19<dwfreed>millisa: "i'm 10x smarter than you, could you at least transfer me to somebody twice as smart as you?"
01:19<millisa>if only that worked.
01:20<millisa>I felt bad for them really. They had no safety net
01:20<millisa>bad for the techs that is. not for att.
01:21<Rudy>anyway, I'm going to bed
01:22<millisa>I can't even remember the last time I called Linode where the first person I talked to didn't just understand the issue but was the one would could solve it
01:24<Nightmare>if I call Linode and ask them if they can fix my life issues do you think they can help with that

02:40*Eugene brushes
02:42<Ikaros>Ok Ankels you'll need to look at your server's configuration yourself then, this sounds to be more a software related issue. Linode can't help you with that. Look at your firewall, look at your site configuration, see if it's even running in the first place. If not, you'll have to figure out on your own why it's not.

02:48<Ikaros>A connection failure to localhost is almost always going to be the result of a service that is either not listening on localhost, is not listening on the port requested, or isn't even running at all.
02:49<Ankels>sometimes it connecting
02:49<Ankels>How it happens?
02:49<Ikaros>Ok then you'll need to figure out why it isn't on your own.
02:49<Ankels>linode dont have customer support?
02:50<Peng>They do.
02:50<Zimsky>for issues that pertain to the physical server and networking that /they/ can control
02:50<@jchun>Linode has customer support available 24x7
02:50<Peng>For an unmanaged VPS, they're not responsible for fixing configuration issues within your VPS.
02:50<Peng>Though they may try to help anyway
02:51<Ankels>ok thanks
02:53<Ankels>i raised the ticket today morning
02:53<Ankels>till now they didnt reply
02:55<Ikaros>You just need to understand that you're expected to manage your own VPS yourself, they don't do it for you.
02:55<Ikaros>That's all
02:57<Zimsky>s/$/ folks/
02:57<Ankels>ok good.. whats the need of customer support?

09:43<@caker>wrong ip, wrong username, or wrong password. Pick one :)

09:47<@caker>maybe you disabled password auth?

09:50<ArchNoob>password method publickey,password
09:51<ArchNoob>Oh, there is a reset password link :D
09:52<@caker>probably time to reset the pass then. Shut down, Rescue tab -> Change Root Password
09:53<ArchNoob>Also, something with the website shouldn't it have two password boxes for verification.
09:53<ArchNoob>Or a show password checkbox.
09:54<ArchNoob>In stead of having to toggle <input /> field to make sure.
09:55<hawk>ArchNoob: I suppose that makes sense, if you're typing passwords

14:31-!-mode/#linode [+l 373] by ChanServ
14:31<dwfreed>doesn't mean we can't answer your questions
14:31<ganesh_>can you please suggest which is the best plan for 5m traffic in a month website.
14:32<dwfreed>the correct answer depends entirely on what you're running, and nobody, not even Linode, could give you the right answer
14:33<dwfreed>start small, deploy your thing, and then benchmark it; you can use something like siege for testing websites
14:33<millisa>Fortunately, it is easy to resize a linode:
14:36<swkide>I don't understand that "plan" idea with pricing. When I run a linode 1GB for an hour in one month I pay $5 or $.0075 at the end?
14:37<@caker>it's hourly up to the monthly cap
14:37<dwfreed>if the Linode exists for 1 hour, you pay for 1 hour
14:37<swkide>but it must be erased, not off - correct?
14:38<dwfreed>Linode resources are reserved while the Linode exists
14:38<swkide>that helped me a lot thanks
14:38<ganesh_>and can you tell me how to give access from linode dashboard to developer.
14:39<dwfreed>you just make an account for them
14:39<ganesh_>i am not a developer and i just want to know how to give access to him to migrate old site to this new server
14:40<millisa>swkide: my last invoice that had your exact scenario: (1 hour runtime on a 1gb linode)
14:41<swkide>millisa: thx a lot - you choose linode over digital ocen, because it is "cheaper"?
14:42<millisa>well, technically I choose both (and some others). but I like linode because it's more memory for your dollar
14:42<nate>Pretty sure DO is hourly as well aren't they? linode at the very least though usually has better hardware tests
14:42<ganesh_>what is NodeBalancers
14:42<@caker>point and click Load Balancers
14:43<swkide>I see
14:45<swkide>I think I'll give it a try - do you recomment any frameworks to deploy linodes? I might need 20+ for an hour or so ...
14:45<ganesh_>our website real time is around 1000 - 1500 most of the time. we are using varnish from digital ocean as well, we would like to know the best server on linode for this
14:46<@caker>For caching servers, our High Memory instances may be useful:
14:51<swkide>Is there a way to support the community - bye Promo or Referral code?
14:52<@caker>You could use my referral code :) dbe98bfe8cad58e02d9ea22fc98f446240edc909
14:54<swkide>caker: you are from linode, correct? anyone else?

22:43<@mcintosh>(i'll still try my best though)
22:43<kandinski>Since a recent forced reboot because of a Xen fix, I can't access external IPs via my VPN (which I installed myself on my linode). I connect to the VPN and the world ispingable from the linode server, but not from my VPN-connected laptop.
22:43<kandinski>I haven't changed anything relevant on either the linode server nor my laptop, so I don't know how to start debugging the issue.
22:44<kandinski>To be more precise: I can use the VPN to ping into my linode/VPN server, but not anywhere outside of that IP.
