  • check_jvm – Nagios Exchange – JvmInspector is standalone tool + Nagios wrapper plugin (check_jvm) that dumps various properties from locally running JVMs. This information includes: * Heap & non-heap memory * Running threads * Loaded classes * Running java version, paths & arguments * On App servers only: Container server name & total active sessions (tested & supported app servers are tomcat5+ and jboss4+) JvmInspector doesn't need local or remote JMX network socket. It directly attaches to JVM's PerfData, so it MUST be started with the same USERid as the target JVM!
  • Raspberry Pi VPN Gateway – Netflix finally arrived in Germany, but guess what? It's library is heavily limited in comparision to the US one and if you like TV series as much as I do, you don't want to wait until they eventually release it year(s) later for us german users. Maybe you've heard recently of Anonabox — a small device with two ethernet ports that you can plug in front of your router and everything behind the device is routed through Tor (side note: turned out to be a scam and got pulled from Kickstarter in the end). However, it made me come up with an idea: Instead of having a Tor-box, I want a VPN-box that is connected to my PrivateInternetAccess VPN. If I'm in need of a VPN connection I just switch the WiFi network and I'm good to go. This way I can easily watch US content from Netflix as well as unblock location restricted content like YouTube, even with my iPhone or Xbox[…]
  • My Tmux Setup on – I've been using tmux as my main terminal multiplexer for about 3 years now and have refined my configuration over time to fit my daily workflow. Which is usually a mix of writing code, chef recipes, remote login into different servers and various shell tasks. This is a flexible setup that doesn't concentrate too much on doing a specific thing or replacing an IDE inside of tmux.

  • Hughes Systique Corp. > Research & Innovation > Newsletter > Issue 2 > mySQL – A typical MySQL cluster requires at least 4 nodes for deploying a High Available MySQL database cluster. The typical configuration of any enterprise application is a 2 Node solution (Active-Standby mode or Active-Active Mode). This is where the real challenge lies: in fitting the MySQL Cluster Nodes in the 2 Nodes offering the application services and then making it work in the configuration without a single point of failure.
  • Corosync / Pacemaker – Execute script on failover – – With Corosync/Pacemaker there is no easy way to simply run a script on failover. There are good reasons for this, but sometimes you want to do something simple. This tutorial describes how to change the Dummy OCF resource to execute a script on failover. In this example it is a script which triggers a few SNMP traps, sends an alert to Nagios and sends some data to Graphite. SNMP alone could be done with the ocf:heartbeat:ClusterMon resource, but the other stuff not.

  • UrBackup – Client/Server Open Source Network Backup for Windows and Linux – UrBackup is an easy to setup open source client/server backup system, that through a combination of image and file backups accomplishes both data safety and a fast restoration time. File and image backups are made while the system is running without interrupting current processes. UrBackup also continuously watches folders you want backed up in order to quickly find differences to previous backups. Because of that incremental file backups are really fast. Your files can be restored through the web interface or the Windows Explorer while the backups of drive volumes can be restored with a bootable CD or USB-Stick (bare metal restore). A web interface makes setting up your own backup server really easy.
