03:42<diveyez>Debian cant iptables without UFW in place...
03:42<diveyez>Not anymore anyway...
03:42<FluffyFoxeh>pretty sure it can
03:43<diveyez>while read line; do sudo ufw insert 1 deny from $line to any; done < ~/fw.blocked
03:43<diveyez>problem solved
03:43<diveyez>Best done on a 2048 or higher linode
03:43<diveyez>That 5$ linode couldnt handle the pressure heh
03:44<@jhaas>aren't they both just interfaces to the netfilter kernel modules?
03:44<diveyez>Good news is users can upsize it for the twenty minutes to run that line...
03:44<diveyez>jhaas: yes
03:44<diveyez>Updating from 8>9 caused some weird issues with that though
03:45<diveyez>I had to reinstall ufw and go with ufw as a solution
03:45<diveyez>my old script broke everything inet lol
03:45<diveyez>using iptables also made openvpn and nginx ridiiculously slow...
03:45*jhaas definitely blames release upgrading
03:46<diveyez>(OpenVPN buold in the guide on documents for linode id broken btw)
03:46<diveyez>ME 2 BRO
03:46<diveyez>Good news is all 700,000 of those ip's identified in the last 12 weeks are denied
03:47<diveyez>Erin answered the ticket on my account regarding that btw
03:47<diveyez>Whoever made that deserves a golden THUG chain for christmas. Worked great.
03:48<diveyez>It was a dirty upgrade jhaas, what you doing up so late?
03:48*diveyez submits 15 random tickets to get jhass's attention lol
03:49<diveyez>Pirenial blindness is setting in, gonna ned some carot juice.

03:52<diveyez>I had to drop the IT degree for a medical degree
03:52<diveyez>jhaas that NJ hardware issue with my machine caused me to lose 3 months of unsaved work lol
03:53<diveyez>Fixed now*
03:53<diveyez>jhaas: if you can assist me in Jan when I buy up more ipv4's I would appreciate it, need to make sure they are not on any BL's
03:55<@jhaas>We monitor the big ones and try to be proactive with removal, but you happen to land an IP on a BL we're more than happy to work to get it delisted.
03:55<diveyez>Sweet Deal.
03:56<diveyez>Clients are requesting that their sites are on their own ip's (i tried to tell them no)
03:56<diveyez>They just want that pretty look on the resolv
03:56<diveyez>jhaas want to play PUBG with me while the world sleeps? Lol
03:57<@jhaas>lol afraid not; at work and haven't played before <.<
03:58<diveyez>They released the 1.0 tonight
03:58<diveyez>Kind of excited to play that
04:00<diveyez>jhaas is there any 8core machines available?

04:57<diveyez>Good lord that is expensive. I remember when we had 8 cores for the 40-60 range
04:58<diveyez>My corporate 4g unlimited data plan costs less lol
04:59<Peng_>For a while Linode gave every plan 8 cores. Now the number of cores scales with the plan.
05:00<nate>was a lot more share-bleeding back then too I believe
05:00<nate>now chances of actually getting impact from another VPS on the host usually seems pretty rare

05:04<elavarsi>AM ELAVARASI
05:04<elavarsi>I have one doubt
05:05<elavarsi>past three month am using Linode manager server
05:05-!-mode/#linode [+l 342] by ChanServ
05:05<elavarsi>Outstanding balance means pending payment or
05:06<elavarsi>I want to know it is auto renewal option is there
05:07<elavarsi>I enable that or option or not how I know?
05:07<Peng_>It will automatically bill you if possible
05:07<Peng_>You should file a support ticket
05:08<elavarsi>actually now I saw outstanding balance
05:08<elavarsi>outstanding balance means what?
05:08<elavarsi>for extra useage
05:08<Peng_>Do you mean "Account Balance"?
05:09<Peng_>Do you mean "Uninvoiced Balance"?
05:10<elavarsi>Uninvoiced Balance $14.58 and counting
05:10<Peng_>That's what your next bill (probably on January 1) will be.
05:10<Peng_>If you have active services, it's increasing, of course.
05:10<elavarsi>1 month ago November 01, 2017 Invoice #9556962 $14.94 20 days ago December 01, 2017 Invoice #9857258 $20.00
05:10<elavarsi>it seems like that
05:10<elavarsi>now currently how much i have to pay
05:11<Peng_>It sounds like probably $20.
05:12<elavarsi>Now I have to pay 20 +14 right?
05:12<Peng_>I don't know.
05:12<Peng_>It sounds like, unless you change your services, your bill on January 1 will be $20.00.
05:12<elavarsi>ok where i get those information
05:12<Peng_>To be clear, I don't work for Linode. I'm only guessing based on the information provided.
05:13<Peng_>And you shouldn't post too much personal information in a public chat room.
05:13<elavarsi>ok ok

06:02<Klaus>I was interested to know which kind of cpanel is included in plan Linode 2GB
06:03<@jhaas>We don't offer cpanel (we're unmanaged) but you can buy it from someone else and install it if you want
06:03<nate>None, they're VPS's that you manage yourself. You only get cPanel with a managed or professional support plan I believe, otherwise you gotta license it yourself
06:03<nate>(which is like $20-ish I think for a VPS License?)
06:04<Klaus>I just wanted to know that, because I am not a sysadmin
06:04<Klaus>On another hosting company they were offering at least webmin for free
06:04<Klaus>Thank you for the reply
06:04<nate>Well, that's probably because webmin is free
06:04<nate>you can install it yourself as well if you want :P
06:05<nate>Webmin and Virtualmin are opensource alternatives to cPanel/WHM. A little more technical-oriented, but free for the most part
06:05<Klaus>I am scared about this, because I haven't configured a server from the beginning
06:06<Klaus>I will check this link
06:06<Klaus>thank you & have a nice day
06:06<@sjacobs>if you want to give it a go, be sure to work through the two guides in the "Before You Begin" section.

10:52<AlexMax>Got a question
10:52<AlexMax>Is there any way that I can uniquely identify a particular VPS?
10:52<linbot>we might have an answer
10:52<dwfreed>MAC address is globally unique
10:52<dwfreed>and thus its main IPv6 address
10:52<AlexMax>dwfreed: What if I create an image
10:52<AlexMax>and then deploy the image multiple times
10:52<dwfreed>MAC address is a property of the Linode, not the image
10:53<AlexMax>dwfreed: Okay. What happens if the server is a part of a free upgrade or a KVM/Xen migration you guys sometimes do?
10:53<dwfreed>it is derived from the Linode ID (in a reversible way, if you know the secret sauce)
10:53<AlexMax>will that ever change the MAC address?
10:53<dwfreed>only creating a new Linode will get you a new MAC address
11:00<Woet>dwfreed: mac addresses are not globally unique
11:00<Woet>but for the purposes of his usage, yea, probably.
11:01<AlexMax>dwfreed: I presume I should be looking at /sys/class/net/eth0/address
11:04<AlexMax>there's a /sys/class/net/dummy0/address
11:04<AlexMax>with a different mac address
11:04<grawity>dummy interfaces are completely virtual; they get a random MAC whenever they're created
11:05<AlexMax>i figured they're virtual, i just didn't know that second bit
11:05<grawity>(dummy0 gets precreated for legacy reasons)
11:06<grawity>renaming dummy0 to eth0 and changing its MAC address is a popular way to deal with MATLAB's license checks :3
11:07<dwfreed>Woet: globally within Linode
11:08<Woet>dwfreed: thats not how you can use the world globally
11:08<dwfreed>Linode is a global company, yes I can
11:08<dwfreed>the uniqueness is not confined to one datacenter

11:27<AlexMax>dwfreed: Are you aware of the secret sauce?
11:27<AlexMax>It'd be nice to be able to divine the MAC address from a linode id for my purposes
11:27<dwfreed>I am, but it's secret sauce, so I don't think I can share it
11:31<AlexMax>are there any plans to expose the mac address from the API
11:32<armiller>APIv4 is being used to implement the new manager
11:32<armiller>So I'd assume there would have to be some function that can get you the MAC address
11:34<armiller>Well, that is if you can see MAC address in the manager. I'm not actually sure if you can do that tho
11:37<armiller>(I checked, you can't)
11:38<Zimsky>Woet: you couldn't rule a straight line on a piece of paper
11:38<Woet>Zimsky: thats because I'm very artistic
11:44<Woet>thats overly complicated
11:44<Woet>and rude
11:44<Woet>i need an op
11:46<Zimsky>if it wasn't overly complicated, it wouldn't be funny
11:47<Woet>either way it wasn't funny, just offensive and unacceptable according to the Linode Code of Conduct
11:52<dwfreed>AlexMax: grab the IPv6 address, eat the datacenter network off the front, undo the EUI-64 conversion
11:53<dwfreed>eg, 2600:3c00::f03c:91ff:fedf:906b becomes f2:3c:91:df:90:6b

12:00<FluffyFoxeh>I'm over 90% of my transfer quota, and I'm getting an alert email about it every 6 hours. Can I make it stop doing that?
12:01<armiller>Yeah, there should be a setting on your Linode for the notification threshold
12:01<armiller>(under settings tab in the manager)
12:01<FluffyFoxeh>It's my account quota that I'm close to exceeding, not any one linode
12:02<armiller>Oh I'm pretty sure you can't turn that one off
12:03<FluffyFoxeh>hm. I had a feeling that was the case. Oh well, I'll just endure it then :p
12:06<dwfreed>I'm not aware that there is one that is account-wide
12:06<dwfreed>unless they changed that
12:07<FluffyFoxeh>"Your account, with the username [username], has exceeded the transfer quota threshold for notification."
12:07<dwfreed>huh, yeah, that's new (compared to me)
12:07<dwfreed>at least it's every 6 hours instead of every 2 like the per Linode ones
12:10<dwfreed>you could pay money to turn it off (buy some Linodes to give yourself more quota)
12:10<relidy>Anyone have words of wisdom on increasing the inode limit on a Linode (CentOS 7; ext4). Everything I'm reading indicates that it's fixed after creation. Am I just going to have to create a separate partition/filesystem to manage this?
12:11<dwfreed>do you have space to grow the filesystem? otherwise, yes, it's pretty fixed, unless you can recreate it
12:11<dzho>relidy: more or less, you would have to change your underlying filesystem
12:12<grawity>for ext#, it's indeed fixed -- afaik even if the filesystem is resized
12:12<dwfreed>(by temporarily putting the data somewhere else)
12:12<dzho>you might go about this from a different angle, though: what is it that is taking up all the inodes? CAn any of that be trimmed or offloaded?
12:13<relidy>It's backup data that's currently occupying the inode/space. Lots and lots of small files (hardlinks, mostly).
12:13<dwfreed>hardlinks don't use inodes
12:14<relidy>Yeah, understand that. Still plenty of other small files apparently.
12:14<relidy>I might just have to size up this machine since the current space is fully allocated and use the new disk space to create a new filesystem or something.
12:15<relidy>The folders that contain the hardlinks are probably a contributing factor here. I'm using rsync to make snapshots.
12:16-!-sandeep [] has quit [Quit: sandeep]
12:16<dwfreed>depends on the folder count
12:16<relidy>Now I'm going to have to go count them, just to see ...

12:18<dwfreed>find -type d | wc -l
12:18<relidy>Yep! Already running

12:19*relidy grumbles about Magento
12:21<dwfreed>find -links 1 | wc -l
12:21<dwfreed>for the number of files that aren't hardlinks to something
12:21<relidy>Ah, handy (and a whopping value of 39).
12:22<relidy>At least on the "current" snapshot. That's undoubtedly variable.
12:23<grawity>is that rsnapshot?
12:23<relidy>No, just a homespun script using rsync directly. It's not fancy.

12:24-!-xxh9 is "Chris R" on #linode
12:24<grawity>I'd consider borg or restic
12:25<dwfreed>one thing to keep in mind with hardlinks is that there are things that modify files without breaking the hardlink
12:25-!-mode/#linode [+l 344] by ChanServ
12:28<relidy>We are going through a separate process to ship backups offsite using duplicity, so I'm not *too* concerned about these local hardlink collections. They're mainly here to provide some convenience (although we're not currently meeting that goal on this server).
12:30<relidy>The goal was to have "live" mounted snapshots that a ... less experienced team member could access to retrieve files in an emergency without going through a full restore process.
12:34<relidy>dwfreed: You asked earlier if I had room to grow the filesystem. Does that indicate that it's possible to tinker with the inode limit while growing the filesystem?
12:34<dwfreed>I thought that growing the filesystem would give you more inodes
12:34<dwfreed>but grawity suggests my thought is wrong
12:35<relidy>Gotcha. Well, thanks to everyone for the discussion. I need to wander off and do some digging apparently.

17:30<relidy>I believe, if you've set a timezone in your profile, that they translate UTC into your selected timezone. That part's handy. Listing UTC and GMT is kinda pointless though.

19:55<diveyez>See the ticket from my account which I am submitting. Same name.
19:56<Zimsky>404 request spam?
19:58<@rsyracuse>Our abuse team is generally better equipped to handle issues like this, and they're usually able to respond within a few minutes
19:59<diveyez>Its a childish abuse of web services. They tried SQL injections and the firewall nailed them.

19:59<Zimsky>how is that childish?
19:59<diveyez>Its just spamming 404 requests lol
19:59<diveyez>I find it amusing.
19:59<Zimsky>so you're saying the clients are requesting 404s?
20:00-!-mode/#linode [+l 342] by ChanServ
20:01<Ikaros>Not surprising, they might be probing you for a weakness to exploit. Considered that maybe?
20:01<Ikaros>Speaking of, I just got the game "Hacknet" and plan to go play it now lulz
20:01<Zimsky>in my case, a good aged cheddar.
20:03<diveyez>Yes and I am logging it. All those ip's going into a blacklist...
20:03<Zimsky>welcome to the internet
20:03<diveyez>At least its not ddos...
20:03<diveyez>Fun Times this one. Ddos would aggitate me. I was woken from sleep by a partner when someone asked him about the website.
20:04<diveyez>That same someone did so at the exact moment their wfvulnscan 404spam hit
20:04<diveyez>stupid people...
20:05<Zimsky>why not just iptables it out and continue unabashed
20:07<Zimsky>then you can party all day 🎈
20:09<diveyez>Why not locate the botnet and get it yanked?
20:09<diveyez>I found some freenode proxy check code in that, freenode is aware of it. Friends at FortMeade said "LOL, Don't worry about those kids. They know 5$ of what you know"
20:10<Zimsky>sure yes ok
20:11<@scrane>diveyez Have you noticed the source of the requests is from any particular LInode server, or is it that your LInode Server is being probed by this?
20:12<diveyez>Check the ticket...
20:12<diveyez>'diveyez' as in divine eyes, time to eat some monatomic gold and crack open a vitamin coctail ;)
20:13*diveyez blasts the drum and bass and continue watching for fail2ban logged denies
20:13<diveyez>Nothing so far. ... .
20:13<@scrane>I will definitely take a look at the ticket and see what we can do about this.
20:15<diveyez>Can I post the skiddies bot ips in here? Lol
20:15<diveyez>I wouldnt call 8 machines a botnet lol
20:15<linbot>Please paste longer snippets over at and not in the channel
20:16<Zimsky>you're frantic over 8 addresses from some automated script?

23:16<diveyez>Zimsky: ufw script is elite now.
23:16<diveyez>No errors.
23:16<diveyez>python3 is also using multiple threads to process the lists now. =)

23:18<Zimsky>diveyez: sit back and relax; peng's going to tell us a christmas story
23:18<diveyez>Peng_ I just told it to process each line in a separate thread/process

23:22<Zimsky>enumerate your list of items, then i/len(list) * 100 is your percentage
23:22<Zimsky>processing each line concurrently sounds wasteful and nasty
