virtuallyGhetto: Ruby vSphere Console (RVC) 1.6 Released – Rich Lane the creator of Ruby vSphere Console just recently released RVC 1.6 which includes some new features and bug fixes. If you are a current RVC user, you can update to the latest version by using the "gem" utility. For those of you who are not familiar with RVC, it is console UI for vCenter Server and ESX(i) host and it provides a way to interact with your vSphere infrastructure like the vSphere Client but using a console shell. RVC can be installed on a Windows, Linux or Mac OSX system and it's built on RbVmomi which is an open source Ruby library/bindings to the vSphere API.

Configuring a site-to-site VPN between a Sonicwall and Linux Openswan – Mike A. Leonetti – I have had the fortune of having the challenge to set up a site-to-site (or BOVPN/Branch Office VPN) between a Sonicwall and Openswan. I have searched for other articles that cover this topic and found plenty of information that got me far enough to get some of it working. However, getting the whole thing working took quite some time and I found the guides to be incomplete. So for the sake of even my own remembrance, I will write a mini guide up. Of course I will link all of the guides I've used in a references section.
VPN Site-to-Site Openswan x ASA (Cisco) – House of Linux – Ladies and gentleman, today I am going to demonstrate how to integrate technologies from different platforms. It is possible to use Cisco to integrate with Windows and Linux using protocol such as LDAP. In this case the communication between Linux and ASA (Adaptive Security Appliances) is straight. We will only need to check the cryptography configuration and that it, the connection is established.

Monitor Your Website in Real-Time with Apachetop – How-To Geek – As a webmaster, I’ve often wanted to be able to see real-time hits as they arrive. Sure, Google Analytics is a wonderful package for looking at trends over time, but there’s a delay of a few hours there, and you really can’t see data like requests per second or total bytes.
This is where the apachetop utility comes in. It’s a very simple command line utility that you can use to monitor traffic real-time. It accomplishes this by parsing the apache logfiles and displaying meaningful output to the screen.
Ashwin Jayaprakash’s Blog: The little gem that is BusyBox (for Windows) – As a Windows user (no shame) I have, for years searched for a simple GNU-like toolkit – grep, awk, tail and other such goodies enjoyed by Linux users. Yes, there's Cygwin but it's a beast – too big and a pain to install. Sometimes, I've even resorted to starting a Linux VMWare image just to run a simple awk script to munge some log files.
