  • 04/26/13--15:10: Shell script question
  • By Robin Scher - Hi Unix gurus, I have a question about shell scripts. My daemon init script is being started by root at system boot time. I'd like the script to be able to access environment variables set in the default locations (e.g. /etc/profile). I get this automatically if I use the -i flag in the shebang at the top of the script: #!/bin/sh -i The script itself does some simple processing to validate paths and set its own custom variables, then starts a binary and terminates. The binary inherits the environment, which is the ultimate goal. However, I am concerned about having a script that is "interactive" not being used interactively, because of the subtle differences in how bash works in interactive mode. Should I be worried about this? Testing shows that it works as expected on one user's system, but could it cause problems on different distributions of Linux or different versions? I appreciate any feedback you may have. Thanks! -robin Robin Scher robin@uberware.net +1 (213) 448-0443 To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Can I take the group's temperature on network monitoring solutions?  I'm looking for something that can keep me apprised of usage & availability stats over time of my render farm, file server, internet gateway, key servers, etc.

    We've been using nagios for a while.. it's good, but a lot of do-our-own-work to make useful.  We've been evaluating SolarWinds, which seems comprehensive, but doesn't seem to be able to show me the various kinds of data I want *together* in a mix-and-match dashboard-style view.  Everything seems to be "Summary" or "Detail" and I really want some summary and some detail on the same dash.

    I'm willing to spend $ -- that could mean a pay system that gives me what I want with a minimum of my own man-hours to set up, maintain, and add/change, or a free system with good paid support / configuration to get it set up and show me what I want to see.  But it seems like many of the solutions are expensive-and-hard-to-use, or free-and-you're-on-your-own.

    Anyone using one that they find useful/flexible, and aren't paying twice or being left entirely-to-your-own-devices with it?

    By Greg Whynott -

    Thought this was a bit amusing.  made me chuckle anyway.


    Was reading the specs of a card we are using,  the LSA 6Gb/sec 9207-8e.   The documentation states " 2 000 000 hours before failure",  yes - 2 million hours,  or a bit over 220 years!   

    2 lines below this it states this device has a 3 year limited warranty.  That works out to less than 1% of what they expect the part to last.  

    With a 2 000 000 expected life time, you would expect to see a warranty a bit longer than 3 years,  after all there is still another 1 999 997 years of life on that puppy,  if you are to believe the marketing blurb.

    the second thing that came to mind is,  I wonder if we'll still be using HBA/SAS in 2 million years.

    By Saker Klippsten - Prob because in 3 years they will have a new product they need to sell you? and do not want to deal with storing parts for failed units... and they are definitely not going to give you a newer card.. :)


    That said. I just read this friday which is kinda cool this should apply to storage equipment :)

    "Should the battery die, Tesla will replace it at no cost with a battery of equal or better energy capacity. Tesla's battery warranty currently lasts eight years."

  • 05/01/13--10:00: linux_kernel_3_9
  • By Saker Klippsten - http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/05/01/linux_kernel_3_9/

    This looks interesting :)

    Key features in the release include caching for SSD storage, new processor architectures, power management improvements targeting tablets and phones, Chromebook support, and a nod towards Android.

    The caching change, present as the dm-cache target and currently described as experimental, lets one drive act as cache for another, so an SSD could be used as the cache device for a hard drive. The aim is to speed up data writes by using the faster SSD to take the writes and transfer them at leisure to the spinning rust. In the other direction, of course, frequently-used data can be cached from the hard drive to the SSD to speed up access.

  • 05/01/13--10:10: Ticketing systems
  • By Stephen Willey - We have several offices all of which use different ticketing systems and we're looking to unify. My main experience is with RT which does the job but it's a bit ugly and not very cuddly for end users. We also have redmine but that's too bug/software oriented. Has anyone used anything free or paid that they felt really hit the sweet spot? Desktop/systems support is a very different game to pipe/app support but maybe there's something that nicely crosses the divide? -- Stephen Willey | Head of Systems and Engineering T: +44 794 472 0543 | +1 604 367 5147 E: stephen.willey@primefocusworld.com A: 2-4 Bucknall Street, London WC2H 8LA | 1205 Melville Street, Vancouver V6E 0A6 To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Just ordered a few of these for our transfer machines in our MCR/IO department. They are finally available!
    I use these to "protect" the ports on our actual Macs from people constantly plugging drives in..

    Firewire800 , USB 3.0 and of course Thunderbolt.

  • 05/02/13--12:05: Summer time Job
  • By Greg Whynott -

    We are looking someone  for a short term (3-4 month) to help out in our department over the summer,  in Toronto downtown.    While it would mostly be helpdesk centric,  there would be some facilities stuff (moving things,  hanging things,  beating things) involved.  

    I'll post more details on the job board here soon,  but its fairly basic common stuff,  such as

    - know your way around windows
    - know how to install software / drivers
    - be organized - no hair brains!
    - be flexible in the hours - we may stagger your shift.
    - able to problem solve computer/software related issues.


    let me know if you know someone interested,  might be a good gig for a student.

What little i can dig up says that a specialised driver is required to make use of them and that RHEL has (thus far) little interest in them. cheers, - cal sawyer To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe
