05:25<StephenR>@hawk ok, so based on the features available, I'm guessing it's basically just HAProxy as a service.
05:26<StephenR>i can't see any mention of things like PROXY support, though and besides one line saying it's "highly available" i can't find any details about whether the service itself has failover (i.e. ip failover to N balancers)
05:30<StephenR>it also appears that there is no way to have the balancer <> backend connection use TLS - all communication will be in the clear over the DC's private network - but that could mean hundreds or thousands of other VMs right?

05:42<bcg>Hello. Hoping someone can help. I have a web server linode running Ubuntu with little customisation. This hosts several WordPress websites, two of which I have recently configured to send email via Gmail's SMTP servers. I also host several websites in a shared hosting environment (for my sins) which also send email via Gmail's SMTP servers. For some reason my Linode server seems to need the Gmail account to have the 'less secure apps' set
05:42<bcg>...shared server does not. I'm guessing something about my linode setup needs tightening up but I'm not quite sure where to look. Any ideas?

05:55<grawity>are you logged in to the correct account?
05:57<syed>yes i only have 1 account, i read some status message about xen servers but i believe mine is kvm but the server is missing. cant even ssh to it and the billing is up to date. i have access to all the billing info
05:57<Peng>Even if it was Xen, it wouldn't go missing.
05:57<Peng>Like... does it still work?
05:58<Peng>File a support ticket, i guess.
05:58<grawity>call Linode or submit a ticket
05:58<syed>nope, no ssh access even
05:58<Peng>Check your ticket and invoice history?
05:58<Peng>But file a ticket.
05:58<syed>submited ticket but its only giving me access to submit to the billing team

07:26<dwfreed>what distro did you deploy to your Linode?
07:26<syed>standard linode image
07:26<@armiller>syed: You can work around that by statically configuring your interfaces yourself
07:27<syed>its a centos 6.5 from linode

07:32<dwfreed>look at the console log
07:32<@armiller>You are likely having an issue with the init process that is ending in a kernel panic. You should be able to check the console with LISH
07:33<dwfreed>(log into LISH, detach from the console, then run the logview command)
07:33<linbot>LISH allows you to perform certain actions without having to log in to the Linode Manager. LISH's primary function is to allow you to access your Linode's console, even if networking is disabled.

09:15<samj>I need help please explaining the pricing plans, I'm kind of new to this ..
09:15-!-mode/#linode [+l 361] by ChanServ
09:15<samj>For example there is a plan that says 10$/month and then (0.15$ per hour )
09:16<samj>I'm looking for a new hosting provider, how is this calculated exactly ?
09:16<ponas>samj: it's 0.15$ per hour but max $10/month
09:16<hawk>If you use said plan for an entire month it's calculated as $10, if used only part of the month it's calculated as num_hours * $.15
09:17<samj>aah Ok, so it means that I pay max 10$ per month , right ?
09:17<MrPPS>That's right
09:18<samj>Perfect , Thanks a lot guys
09:18<hawk>samj: With the possible exception of a situation where you've exceeded the transfer quota
09:18<samj>Yes that would make sense
09:19<samj>I'm not sure though If it would be a good option for hosting a website since I'm not much into technical stuff
09:20<MrPPS>Depends on if you're willing to put in a bit of time to learn, or not! If you don't want to deal with technical things to set it up, or fix it when it breaks down
09:20<samj>this is a cloud service, no ready made hosting plans installed, right ?
09:20<MrPPS>Then either go for shared hosting, or Linode Managed :) And yes, that's correct - all that is provided is the server
09:21<MrPPS>It is up to you what gets installed on there, configured, etc.
09:22<samj>Aha I understand now, but I can't find the Linode managed plans
09:22<linbot>New news from forum: Email/SMTP Related Forum • SpamAssassin, The query to URIBL was blocked. <>
09:22<MrPPS> - to be honest, this is more for management after it's all set up
09:22<MrPPS>sorry, double linked!
09:23<MrPPS>There is also linode professional services -
09:25<samj>thanks a lot MrPPS , I guess what I'm asking is if there is a hosting plan like other hosting companies, where you just login to your cpnale and start developing your website
09:26<MrPPS>Not that sort of hosting, I'm afraid!
09:26<MrPPS>And no worries - happy to help :)
09:26<samj>I apologize for the noobness , but I already got bitten twice with two bad hosting plans,
09:26<MrPPS>Absolutely fine - better to ask up front than be bitten later on :)
09:27<samj>Yeah, It's always nice finding helpful honest people .. I can't thank you enough
09:28<samj>Do you know of any good hosting companies ? .. Ratings can't be trusted so I've learned the hard way
09:28<MrPPS>Any time! And in the past, I've had an acceptable experience with bluehost - nothing outstanding, but it always worked, and was reasonably priced (for shared hosting)
09:28<MrPPS>Unfortunately I don't have much personal experience to compare it to, so I can say whether it's better than others or not - only that I didn't feel I was ripped off
09:30<samj>Well yes, add to the mix few plans for Shared hosting, then semi dedicated, then business, then vps then reseller .. etc . .. That is more like a jungle
09:30<samj>For a new comer .. Good luck not getting bitten
09:31<MrPPS>Yeah, there's plenty out there! I started off shared hosting with bluehost many years back, but then moved on to Linode when I wanted more control + better performance. It worked well for me, as I am employed in a related field, so server administration isn't something I really had to learn
09:31<MrPPS>But obviously if you've no experience administering linux servers, then it may be a bit of a steeper learning curve!
09:32<samj>Sigh, I will have to keep digging I guess
09:33<MrPPS>Could always spin up the cheapest one, set your website up on it, and see how much you struggle to do that
09:33<MrPPS>If you're happy with how difficult it is, maybe try running it on there for a while. If not, $5 is not a great deal lost!
09:33<samj>Yeah I thought so at the beginning then it occured to me that it might be more complicated than that
09:34<samj>The only way to know if the hosting is working good or not is when site is under load , by then it will be big trouble to find out that you need to switch hosting
09:35<MrPPS>Oh, yeah I can attest to the fact that linode hardware etc performs well
09:35<MrPPS>So it's more how much would your website need in the way of resources + are you comfortable with configuration of Linux servers
09:36<MrPPS>But you can also do load testing (using Apache benchmark etc)
09:36<MrPPS>Which simulates high load to see how your website will work
09:36<samj>Yes, Reason I got here is because of the good reviews I find about Linode, problem apparently I don't have enough expertise and cant afford wasting time learning .. Need to attend to business rather than learning hard technical stuff

09:37<samj>Oh I didn't know about such tests ! .. thanks for pointing it out
09:38-!-Joe [] has quit []
09:38<MrPPS>No worries :) but as you say, if you don't have the time to learn, it's probably not right for you for the moment (unless you pay someone to set it up + configure as needed)
09:38<samj>MrPPS can I have your email or contact in case I decide to go the hard way ? .. That is if you freelance on your free time of course
09:39<MrPPS>samj: I'll pm it to you :)
09:39<samj>Great, thank you :)
09:40<ponas>if you want something managed that has some kind of guaranteed performance you could look into webfaction
09:40<ponas>never tried them but I've read some positive reviews
09:41<samj>thank you ponas, will take a look

14:34<zifnab>i have a dilemma i need some input in
14:34<zifnab>cheap rent, but comcast
14:34<zifnab>vs expensive rent, but gigabit
14:36<cbirk>i always try to steer as far away from comcast as possible
14:36<cbirk>they are the devil.
14:36<zifnab>so, seattle prices, my current rental place wants $2400 at renewal
14:36<zifnab>this place is $1910-ish
14:36<zifnab>which is fantastic, its cheap
14:37<cbirk>id rather live in a sewer than use comcast
14:37<millisa>cbirk's in a halfshell!
14:37<cbirk>fact ^
14:38<cbirk>zifnab: whos providing the gigabit
14:38<zifnab>some local place
14:38<cbirk>yeah sounds better than comcast
14:38<zifnab>there's centurylink or a local cable provider who has gigabit
14:38<zifnab>"is it worth more money"
14:39<zifnab>like, if htats the only downside about this apartment
14:39<zifnab>appears i only use 300GB (down) / 900GB (up) in a month
14:39<zifnab>or, well, two months, uptime is 60 days
14:40<cbirk>wait - they limit your bandwidth ?
14:40<cbirk>i thought you were talking speed
14:40<zifnab>thats from ip -s link on the router
14:40<cbirk>in any case
14:40<zifnab>so, what i've actually used
14:40<cbirk>i would avoid comcast at whatever costs necessary
14:41<zifnab>well, back to setting up an elasticsearch cluster
14:41<zifnab>idk, i've got a few weeks to figure it out

17:24<FluffyFoxeh>somehow storing our emails on external Microsoft servers is more secure than not doing so
17:26<FluffyFoxeh>oh and the bitbucket will be replaced with OneDrive as the new "file sharing" service
17:26<FluffyFoxeh>dunno if they're aware that bitbucket is a git repository server and not a file sharing service
17:26<FluffyFoxeh>because that makes no sense
17:27<zifnab>you know what i miss about having an it department
17:27<zifnab>coming to work and saying "I literally can't do my job right now"
17:28<FluffyFoxeh>that happens semi regularly when they turn off some essential network component for no apparent reason for 4 hours in the middle of the day

17:28<zifnab>oh well
17:28<relidy>I'll have you know that we always have our reasons. They may be reasons like, "it'll be funny", but it's a reason.
17:28<zifnab>maybe i'll have to deal with that hell in the future again
17:29<zifnab>best part of startups
17:29<zifnab>"here's a macbook"

17:30<akerl>Oh, storing emails in cloud hosting vs local is literally way more secure

17:30<akerl>No joke
17:30<zifnab>akerl i thought you died
17:30<FluffyFoxeh>I don't see how it could be more secure to put them outside your network instead of inside it
17:30<akerl>For a company, basically every threat vector for emails starts with "and then the employee..."
17:30<zifnab>"stolen computers"
17:31<akerl>"... took their laptop to a bar", "... screwed up the hardware maint and rm -rf'd the drives", "... stole the drives"
17:31<FluffyFoxeh>I'll give you that
17:31-!-mode/#linode [+l 372] by ChanServ
17:32<FluffyFoxeh>fwiw our laptops use FDE
17:32<FluffyFoxeh>but that's probably only as strong as the employee's password
17:32<akerl>And the venn diagram of "people employed at your company" and "people with direct connections to your company" is a circle, so the odds of somebody getting real stupid and also knowing where the email server sits physically or electronically is way higher than the odds some Microsoft employee or attacker both decides to do malice to O365 *and* picks/finds your data
17:33<akerl>It's also only as strong as the employee's opsec. Leave the laptop just slept as you cross the border? Screwed. Unlock the laptop at the bar and then head to the toilet? Screwed.
17:33<akerl>Now, for *individuals*, we're talking a super different model
17:34<akerl>Since you don't have to worry as much that somebody else with access to your personal data goes rogue
17:34<FluffyFoxeh>I guess the issue with the central IT department is that the development staff is a very small portion of the people it serves, and the rest of them are mostly bad at computers
17:34<zifnab>yeah, thats normally rule #1 of hiring me
17:34-!-dax [] has joined #linode

17:34<zifnab>"i want a macbook. no you can't touch it, its mine"
17:34<akerl>Oh, I hate people like you
17:35<zifnab>and i hate people like you
17:35<akerl>My general answer is "enjoy the job hunt"
17:35<zifnab>its pretty simple, don't hire me
17:35-!-mode/#linode [+l 373] by ChanServ
17:35<zifnab>yeah, i'm ok with that
17:35<zifnab>"sorry, you can't install atom, its not on the approved software list"
17:35<zifnab>shit like that? fuck off
17:35<akerl>You can install it, but my endpoint tooling will snoop on it and its network connections go through my network inspection
17:36<FluffyFoxeh>I use a SSH tunnel at work because they block IMAP and I need it if I want to use email without dealing with the horrid outlook webmail
17:36<zifnab>i interviewed somewhere recently where i made the mistake of connecting to their wifi with my phone
17:36<zifnab>and...everything was blocked
17:36<zifnab>so i asked the interviewer, and yeah, of course, we have a sonicwall, it keeps people off facebook
17:37<zifnab>"wait, you mitm all your employees traffic" "...yeah, of course we do" "..."
17:37<zifnab>i realize thats probably normal some places
17:37<akerl>I mean, anybody dumb enough to get on facebook after the above disclaimer that all traffic passes via my grubby, neckbeardy fingers is welcome to do so
17:37<FluffyFoxeh>if I worked at a place like that I'd probably proxy the shit out of it and if they tried to stop me I'd leave
17:37<zifnab>ssh tunnels everywhere
17:37<akerl>Good luck :D
17:38<akerl>Honest question: why would you evade vs just not mixing work and not work?
17:38<FluffyFoxeh>there's enough things to get frustrated with in software dev without the idiotic corporate web filter being one of them
17:38<FluffyFoxeh>because it invariable hits things I actually need
17:38<FluffyFoxeh>like they block outbound SSH. so no git repos for me
17:38<zifnab>and, becuase work inevitably decides they should mix not work with work
17:39<FluffyFoxeh>and seeing as a lot of my job right now involves third party git repos, that's really not helpful
17:39<zifnab>i tend to be pretty flexible, if i'm needed at 2am i'm available
17:39<zifnab>i expect the same shit out of my employer
17:39<MajObviousman>zifnab: damnit, now I think _I_ need tacos
17:39<MajObviousman>I was happy in my taco-less state until you wrote that
17:39<zifnab>MajObviousman: i had italian tacos (pizza)
17:39<zifnab>taco place had a line
17:40<FluffyFoxeh>or the email example. I use a linux machine at work, so without IMAP it'd be the web mail. which means I'd miss a lot of emails on account of browser notifications being shitty or having rebooted and forgot to open the tab
17:41<zifnab>akerl: i think there needs to be a level of trust between employers and employees, and "we watch everything you do", and "we block certain sites" betrays that level of trust
17:41<zifnab>culture thing, you're paying me a ton of money, if you're not able to trust me enough to do my fucking job and want to babysit me all day, i'm more than happy going somewhere else
17:41<akerl>What about the attacker who steals your laptop?
17:42<MajObviousman>fold the pizza slices in half
17:42<akerl>I mean, he's taking a ton of money, but it seems like a much worse arrangement
17:42<MajObviousman>I too did the "I'm working on a macbook pro. Oh you're a windows shop? That's too bad, I'm working on a macbook pro. With these specs."
17:42<MajObviousman>it's not even joined to the domain
17:42<zifnab>bitlocker, filevault, etc
17:43<akerl>FDE covers one super narrow threat vector though
17:43<MajObviousman>but then, I don't work for large companies. I did once, for 18 months. It was about as tedious as I expected.
17:43<zifnab>sure, "you stole my laptop"
17:43<akerl>No, "You stole my laptop and it was powered off"
17:44<FluffyFoxeh>they expect me to do my job and if I don't then they'll throw me out. it's all in the papers I signed. trying to micromanage my internet connection is a waste of time
17:44<MajObviousman>on macs you can set it to forget the FDE key every time you lock the screen
17:44<MajObviousman>which if you use your user password as your FDE key, isn't that big of a deal. Doing <-- also reduces the value of FDE considerably
17:44<MajObviousman>and if you don't share keyphrases, then you're typing both things in all the time, which gets tiresome
17:44<akerl>It also slows re-login considerably :(
17:44<zifnab>and, if you want to make that a policy that thats what you have to do
17:45<zifnab>"You're fired if you don't do this"
17:45<MajObviousman>there's also a nasty little bug in OS X where if it goes to sleep and you told it to forget FDE keys, it doesn't ever work quite the same way when it wakes up
17:45<zifnab>or, cool someone steals your laptop and leaks a bunch of proprietary shit? you're obviously at fault
17:45<MajObviousman>restoring the RAM from swap, something fucks up in there
17:45<akerl>zifnab: that's not how leaks work, though
17:45<zifnab>i guess followup: where in the hell will i be working that cares that much about a data breach
17:45<zifnab>"oh, someone got a piece of code"
17:46<akerl>Like, if data leaks via an employee, it doesn't matter if I can point to a contract that says "Hey, the employee swore he'd follow the rules and he didn't and a ton of data got leaked" doesn't really help
17:46<akerl>because the NYT headline isn't gonna say "Oh, it's kosher, they can pass the buck to their employee"
17:46<arlen>MajObviousman: had that issue with el cap but seems fixed now
17:46<zifnab>don't have customer data on your machine
17:46<zifnab>problem solved
17:46<zifnab>don't have monolithic git repos, another problem solved
17:46<akerl>Attacker gets laptop -> attacker uses laptop to pull data -> data data data
17:47<MajObviousman>arlen: I've had that issue back to 2012. If Sierra has finally fixed it, then I've finally got my reason to upgrade
17:47<zifnab>ssh keys should always have passphrases
17:47<akerl>hence network controls being relevant
17:47<FluffyFoxeh>also my workstation sits under my desk and if someone is able to steal that we have bigger problems than the contents of my disk
17:47<zifnab>(as should openvpn/etc keys)
17:47<zifnab>all of this shit gets fixed with 2fa
17:47<arlen>MajObviousman: fixed it for me but have seen reports of it not working for others, worth a try I guess
17:48<zifnab>anyways, yeah, thats about my entire opinion
17:48<MajObviousman>I've no idea how or why it's not a bigger deal, but I struck that bug on three different MBPs across five years
17:48<MajObviousman>so it's not just me
17:48<zifnab>cluster: elk, status: green, 3, 0
17:48*MajObviousman makes note to test again
17:49<zifnab>so close
17:49<akerl>I guess I'll just make the statement that there are industries where the risk of data breach, the overall size of the company, and the realities of managing imperfect humans leads to "well we all trust each other and we're all smart tech people" not being sufficient
17:49<zifnab>akerl: correct. so far, the industries i've worked in? "cool you got our fota client, meh?"

17:50<zifnab>customer data never hits a personal machine
17:50<zifnab>google? probably cares a bit more
17:50<MajObviousman>I think what I'd really like is a silent second factor in the form of a bluetooth presence of my phone
17:51<MajObviousman>and if the phone's not present, there's a hideous sha256 hash to type in instead
17:51<zifnab>fwiw the company that was going insane about data was bestbuy, it was for a backend developer
17:51<zifnab>and, their entire reasoning was "we don't want our employees on facebook"
17:51<dwfreed>MajObviousman: define "presence"
17:51<dwfreed>Bluetooth MAC addresses are as spoofable as ethernet ones
17:51<dwfreed>also easier to pick up
17:52<zifnab>MajObviousman: why would i skip data nodes?
17:52<MajObviousman>zifnab: so your ELK stack can be web scale
17:52<zifnab>then i can't store anything
17:52<MajObviousman>and it's so fast!
17:52<zifnab>also do you need ingestion nodes
17:52<MajObviousman>Web. Scale.
17:52<zifnab>i assumed the masters could ingest
17:53<MajObviousman>they can, but the ELK docs are extremely particular that you shouldn't run anything on a master. Don't even sneeze at a master
17:53<MajObviousman>which I've flatly ignored and made master also ingestion nodes
17:53<zifnab>oh, wait, i don't even need ingestion nodes afaik
17:53<zifnab>this is just logs
17:53<zifnab>ingestion is for pipelines, which...meh?
17:53<MajObviousman>because what I see is that ES has a mix of "We did this a bunch of times and discovered that if you do X or Y, bad performance happens" and "This is really a myth and explaining the nuance would take too long so just do $THING"
17:54<MajObviousman>master nodes doing nothing is in the latter category
17:54<zifnab>yeah, i have some tiny (i think t2.medium) nodes for master
17:54<zifnab>and a couple of m4.large things for data
17:54<zifnab>and figured i'd just point everything at the data nodes
17:54<MajObviousman>there's actual value in a coordinating node
17:54<zifnab>or, well, elk-data.service.consul
17:55<MajObviousman>if you have large datasets that you're crawling, that is
17:55<zifnab>yeah we don't
17:55<zifnab>literally nginx logs + service logs
17:55<MajObviousman>yeah pffft you're golden
17:56<MajObviousman>but seriously, WORN = web scale
17:56<zifnab>kibana is a gui i can give developers who don't get journalctl and can't seem to learn `ansible hostgroup -ba "journalctl -u <service-name>"`
17:56<zifnab>its funny what developers seem unable to learn
17:56<zifnab>ansible is black magic
17:56<zifnab>i even got to the point of "just run this jenkins job, it'll give you logs"
17:56<MajObviousman>it's ... not really. You run the thing and it runs the things on the things you tell it to thing
17:56<MajObviousman>it's just a big switch board
17:56<zifnab>"but i just write code"
17:57<MajObviousman>"then you should love ansible because it's all code"
17:57<zifnab>i'd fire people who aren't willing to learn things
17:57<MajObviousman>if you could fire them
17:57<MajObviousman>well thre's also no universal rule
17:57<zifnab>i don't want to be friends with my boss
17:57<zifnab>that sounds mean
17:57<MajObviousman>some times I just want something to fucking work without me having to learn Yet Another DSL
17:58<MajObviousman>I've got enough of those in my head, and the past five years have been very very bad for reinventing wheels that are ever so slightly rounder than the ones before them, with entirely different syntax
17:59<zifnab>terraform's dsl is the worst
17:59<zifnab>"what do you mean i can't store a list in a map"
17:59<MajObviousman>I've had the most success with tying in a jenkins instance with one job = one ansible task, push button get result
17:59<MajObviousman>the devs feel like they didn't learn anything, and you don't have to maintain kibana
17:59<MajObviousman>which admittedly isn't hard to maintain
18:00<zifnab>i have that already
18:00<zifnab>its 'too hard'
18:00<zifnab>'it doesnt go back far enough, i want all logs from this thing forever'
18:00<zifnab>thats going to be fun too fwiw
18:00<zifnab>i'm pretty sure they're going to get kibana and be entirely lost
