00:50<atrus>i don't suppose recent notices about migration needing to happen are the one needed to dodge this big new intel kernel-memory-leaking issue that's starting to rumble about?
00:51<Peng_>You got a notice too?
00:51<Peng_>I only got one from Linode
00:57<@sjacobs>atrus: those notifications are for scheduled migrations which have been ongoing for a few months now. they are unrelated to the recent kernel news.
01:00<Peng_>In some ways that's even more interesting!

01:28-!-mode/#linode [+l 346] by ChanServ
01:28<dwfreed>because you stopped it?
01:29<dwfreed>or it ran out of memory
01:29<@sjacobs>if mysql didn't log any errors, out of memory would be my guess.
01:30<Woet>or someone is accessing your MySQL memory from another Linode and it crashes
01:30<Ajay>Thank u so much

01:34<Zimsky>I don't think woet appreciates it either
01:35<Woet>i don't
01:35<Woet>thanks for having my back
01:35<Zimsky>no problem guv
01:36<Woet>whats with all these linode employee nicks starting with j
01:37<Woet>is it some stupid inside joke or are people with j nicks preferred during the hiring process
01:37<Zimsky>jhaas: woet and I feel that peng has crossed the line with his systematic intimidation and harassment
01:37<Woet>and yea that
01:37<@jhaas>woet: we just have lots of j's
01:37<Woet>so its the hiring process thing
01:38<Woet>surely theres a federal law about that
01:38<Zimsky>that sounds discriminatory
01:38<@jmetz>there are a lot of j's aren't there?
01:38<@jhaas>lol peng has crossed the _ to become peng_ ?
01:38<Woet>i'm gonna do the math
01:39<Zimsky>I'm reporting linode to the SEC
01:42<Woet>i did the math:
01:42<Woet>theres a big bias towards hiring people starting with J, A, C, S and R
01:44<Zimsky>how many elements are in the superset?
01:44<Zimsky>can't be bothered to sum()
01:44<Peng_>Woet: Good luck. Their lawyers are also anmed J, A, C, S, and R.
01:45<Zimsky>Woet: you don't have to take that kind of lip from the frogman
01:45<Zimsky>and his friend anmed
01:45<Zimsky>Anmed and 'Frogman' Peng_ are conspiring to break down the security of processors
01:46<Woet>i think we have a solid case
01:46<Woet>"Christopher S. Aker"
01:46<Woet>C, S and A are in the top 4
01:47<Woet>coincidence? i think not

05:53<dexterfoo> does that look right?
06:10<Peng_>Yes. There are a whole bunch others.
06:10<Peng_>I mean, that's one of them, and there are a whole bunch of others.
06:10<Peng_>I'd rather run a resolver locally and configure Nginx to use or ::1 though. :-\

08:05<ntenisOT>hello guys
08:05<ntenisOT>does linode offer equinix servers?
08:06<ntenisOT>access to this network. most financial services are located here
08:07<Peng_>...The Internet?
08:07<grawity>ntenisOT: no, Linode only offers public Internet access
08:07<dzho>oh, is this that whole "use a cloud service to manage your cloud services" thing?
08:07<ntenisOT>thanks a lot
08:08<Peng_>......There's a financial network?
08:10<ericoc>please tell me it’s called moneynet
08:11<dzho>of course that turns out really to be a thing, as one would expect, but not what I meant.
08:12<ericoc>moneynet apparently is actually a thing as well
08:14<ericoc> this feels like marketing gibberish
08:17<dzho>best I can tell from the little time and attention I was willing to invest in looking it up, they run datacenters
08:17<dzho>or datacentres, depending on your jurisdiction
08:20<Peng_>> Its purchase of TelecityGroup in early 2016 established the company as the largest colocation provider in Europe.[7]
08:20<Peng_>Hey I missed that
08:20<Peng_>So Linode does use at least one "Equinix" data center. :D
08:21<ntenisOT>bullying :)
08:22<Peng_>dzho: Lot of data centers. Lot of Internet exchanges in Equinix data centers.
08:23<dzho>in any case, they're not
08:23<dzho>"a network"
08:24<grawity>and in any case, even if the datacenter hosts some fancy private interconnects, afaik you can't really get a Linode VPS attached to those

10:13<basim>my server is down

10:14<smallclone>basim: ok, what happened?
10:14<basim>pls help me
10:14<Peng_>The DNS server is responding.
10:14-!-mode/#linode [+l 349] by ChanServ
10:15<basim>then what is the issue?
10:15<Peng_>I don't know, but it's not down.
10:15<Peng_>What is the issue?
10:16<basim>pls check
10:17<smallclone>basim: there's most likely an issue with the glue records you're using to run your own nameservers with cpanel
10:17<smallclone>that's a registrar problem. there doesn't appear to be any issues with your linode, at least from my brief check
10:19<smallclone>suggestion: don't use cpanel's goofy vanity name server feature. just use your registrar's nameservers or something. having your authoritative nameservers running on the same machine as your website itself is bad.
10:22<Peng_>The DNS setup isn't redundant, but it does seem to be working at the moment.
10:22<Peng_>smallclone: Or use Linode's DNS. :D
10:23<smallclone>yeah i was wrong about that, i used a bad dig option and got some garbled results
10:24<smallclone>^ your dns is ok, and i'm at least getting an error message on your website now
10:24<smallclone>appears to be a magento error
10:25<smallclone>basim: google "Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons." and you'll see what i mean
10:25<smallclone>looks like there's a few solutions there

12:01<smallclone>stalin: if you use the linode backup service, they are stored on linode's infrastructure, in the same datacenter
12:03<smallclone>using the linode backup service doesn't take up any additional space on your vps

12:38<nate>benjamin: Did you make sure the linode came back up after the upgrade/migration? Is it showing as running in your dashboard?

12:40<Woet>benjamin: so SSH in and diagnose it
12:42<benjamin>sry,i don't know abt SSH in ,whether diagnose by restarting?
12:45<nate>benjamin: Are you paying for managed/professional support by chance? If so, file a ticket, this is largely a community support channel.
12:45<@bmartin>benjamin your best bet is to open a support ticket. if you provide the number I can have someone look into it ASAP
12:45<nate>Most linode users are expected to have some general understanding of system administration, otherwise to have managed/professional, so if you don't know how to SSH, I'm guessing you've got the latter? :P
12:47<benjamin>ok , will open a supprt ticket.Thanks

13:18<@scrane>shibaa987 Do you have access to rescue mode where your installation is? Or root access to the system?
13:19<shibaa987>I dont have root access to the sustem
13:19<shibaa987>but why exactly you want me to have root access ??
13:21<armiller>shibaa987: How do you normally access your Wordpress then? FTP?
13:22<shibaa987>I access the wordpress via ssh
13:22<shibaa987>but as a normal user and not root
13:22<armiller>That's fine. If it's wordpress you should be able to copy over your files using SFTP then
13:22<armiller>But you would need to create a Linode and install Wordpress on it first
13:23<shibaa987>I have created a Linode

13:24<armiller>But the version of Ubuntu shouldn't matter too much
13:24<shibaa987>Okay cool.. Thanks armiller
13:24<shibaa987>Which version of Ubuntu is ideally recommended by you ??

13:44<relidy>I don't know if anyone's mentioned it here yet, but Ars Technica has a story up about it that's a good read:

13:48<intelhardoops>I am in the process of moving over to Linode from Digital Ocean and this helps me plan my transition.

14:15<nate>the distros are all public source too lol
14:15<synfinatic>can't wait for the new benchmarks AMD is going to put out soon
14:16<nate>besides you really think of all the *nix distros there are (especially security-oriented ones) that it wouldn't end up leaked anyways then?
14:16<synfinatic>distro's have a long history of holding off on security patches until a given date when the bug is announced
14:16<synfinatic>see virtually every CVE impacting linux
14:17<nate>synfinatic: We hardly have a long history of CPU-level vulnerabilities that can be exploited over javascript however, so
14:17<nate>I think it's fair they're treating this one a bit more severe :P
14:17<synfinatic>there is that
14:17<synfinatic>and it's not really a linux/windows bug
14:17<synfinatic>so a lot more coordination
14:18<synfinatic>anyways, I just can't wait for averyone running IO bound workloads wonder why everything is so much slower after applying a security update

19:45<Nick>Hi , whether usage of linode plans will be calculated based on hours?
19:45<@scrane>Hey Nick, So if you have a Linode available on your account, whether it's powered on or off you will be billed hourly upto the maximum amount for that plan.
19:45<synfinatic>yeah, it's per hour. just like it says on the pricing page
19:46<@scrane>You can see what the rates are here:
19:51<Nick>Thanks , actually my site makes much CPU usage because of users , whether I can customize any linode plans by adding CPU separately extra? I'm looking for plans with more CPU core with best price
19:51<@scrane>I'm sorry, we don't offer any customizable plans.
19:52<@scrane>The only ones that are available are the ones on the pricing page.

19:57<synfinatic>optimize code? that's crazy talk
19:58<veecious>anyone have a good recommendation for a free ssl ?
19:59<synfinatic>let's encrypt
19:59<synfinatic>pretty much what everyone uses for free ssl nowadays
19:59<Peng_>synfinatic: Developer time is more expensive than CPU time, but if there's low hanging fruit...
20:00<synfinatic>for one webserver, probably cheaper to just buy a bigger box
20:00<Peng_>Meanwhile Google probably assigns teams of PhDs to save microseconds. :D
20:01<synfinatic>scale is everything
20:01<synfinatic>didn't take long:
20:01<Nick>My team is trying on..,but couldn't make best solution.whether best suggestion is to invest upon developers or high plans is my question
20:01<SleePy>And they are being put to good use right now with that ##% loss for the intel issue
20:01<Peng_>"We did all that work and Security wants to reduce performance 10%!?!?!"
20:02<SleePy>Nick: I would invest in automation of adding/removing vms as needed. During slower times you spindown and remove nodes you don't need, during peak hours you add nodes
20:03<synfinatic>Nick deciding to throw engineers or hardware at a problem is something you'll have to figure out for yourself. generally speaking though, a good start is if you're spending more $$$ on hardware then developers, throw devs at it. If more $$$ on devs then hardware, throw hardware
20:03<synfinatic>but as always, "it depends"
20:04<Nick>I already spend much upon developers now let me try to spend on hardware.thank u guys

20:08<Peng_>It was free during beta. They were planning to start charging January 1 but I'm not sure that's actually happened yet.
20:09<Peng_>I think the future price was documented.
20:09<Peng_>Ah, I was misleading. it's still beta.

20:10<Peng_>I'd prefer not to say something that might be inaccurate.
20:10<Peng_>Oh, I remembered right. Website says $0.10/GB.
20:11<SleePy>I think it was moved to Feb 1 for paying
20:11<SleePy>I never got around to trying it. I think it required me to move my billing over to hourly. Don't want to loose my discount!
20:12<bmcorum>Ah...well still looks like S3 is going to be my cheapest bet

21:56<Zimsky>c'est la vie
21:56<Guest1024>i have been through the guides, I guess it's something simple
21:58<millisa>a more specific question might have a better chance of getting a useful response.
21:59<Guest1024>if it wouldn't be a bother I perhaps could start with a pastebin link to my file?
21:59<Guest1024>I can't be specific at the moment, because I don't have any errors visible and i'm a bit lost at what I did wrong
22:00<millisa>if you want to pastebin whatever, folks will probably look. but you'd have to give a hint what you are trying to do with postfix
22:01<Guest1024>just trying to get the test email to send out to know it's working
22:01<Guest1024>the linux VM is on my home NAS, on it's own local static IP, not sure if I needed to indicate that somewhere during config. my hostname is
22:02<millisa>That looks like it's on a ramnode ip
22:02<Guest1024>crap I have relayhost setup, not blank like it is there btw
22:02<Guest1024>that was just the default IP
22:03<Zimsky>if you're running stuff from a residential ISP, be sure to check they're not blocking inbound SMTP ports
22:03<Zimsky>they like doing that now
22:04<Guest1024>I have this smtp stuff working on a windows VM so I would think not
22:04<Guest1024>relayhost = []:587, not blank like in the link btw
22:07<millisa>I'm still trying to decipher the bit about the vm on your home nas. where does linode fit in with what you are trying to do?
22:07<Guest1024>yeah that is true, I'm not even using linode, only arrived here because there was a postfix guide on the website
22:08<Guest1024>i shall try spending more time with postfix guides and perhaps see what i've missed
22:08<millisa>well, off the top of my head, providers are picky about the forward needing to match the reverse needing to match the hostname used in the helo/ehlo
22:09<Guest1024>thanks for the ideas!
22:09<millisa>but there should be some hint in the mail log if they are denying it due to that.
22:10<@mcintosh>tmberg: ipv6 looks okay to me on a few linodes i checked - could you open a ticket?
22:16<Peng_>Not unheard of for the NTP Pool monitors to have routing issues.

23:20<linbot>Please paste longer snippets over at and not in the channel
23:25<@jhaas>those lines look normal; are you having a specific issue?
