Bookmarks for 7 nov 2011 through 8 nov 2011

These are my links for 7 nov 2011 through 8 nov 2011:

  • Testing puppet with Jenkins before deploying | – […] However, I had overlooked one element: I tend to make a lot of typos […]

    funny and very instructive

  • VMware Monitoring Appliance with Nagios, NagVis, PNP4Nagios, Smokeping, Cacti and OpenNMS – Monitoring in just a few minutes! This VMware appliance based on Ubuntu Server Edition 10.10 64-bit contains the most important monitoring software packages, installed and ready-to-run:

    Nagios 3.2.3
    NagVis 1.5.5
    PNP4Nagios 0.6.7
    MK Livestatus 1.1.8
    Cacti/Spine 0.8.7g
    Smokeping 2.3.6
    OpenNMS 1.8.5

    You can start immediately. It is especially suitable for comparing these different monitoring solutions. Note that OpenNMS is written in Java and produces a high load on the system. Starting and Stopping OpenNMS takes a long time (several minutes!).

  • Squid Block – DNSBL Redirector for the Squid Proxy – dnsbl_redir is a shamelessly derived redirector based on the asqredir redirector written by Thomas Zippo < thomas at zippo dot ch >. Thanks!
    Its been rewritten to use a DNSBL list (RHS type) to check for and block sites listed in the DNSBL. It will redirect your users to the page/site listed in the top of the dnsbl_redir.h file.

    dnsbl_redir is written in C. It consists of one small source file and a small(er) .h file. It has been tested and runs on the current Squid versions. It performs very well on Linux (RedHat/Fedora), BSD and technically should compile and run on any gnu/linux.
