These are my links for 1 Mar 2016 through 8 Mar 2016:

  • ansiblecookbook.com – This books should become a reference for how doing cool things in your daily business with Ansible, things you can not find in the official docs.
  • Ansible Cheat Sheet | Wall-Skills.com – Ansible is the cool, new kid on the block that is IT automation. So, just in case you need an Ansible Cheat Sheet, we’ve got you covered
  • zorangagic/awsinfo – Daily Inventory of all AWS resources in excel format
  • High availability clustering on AWS | Zoran’s Blog – How do we keep legacy applications highly available on AWS? I have already written about this previously and there are many good alternatives with the upcoming Cloudwatch instance recovery the easiest to implement. Yet Cloudwatch instance recovery or autoscaling group with min=1,max=1 still requires failure to be detected (1-2 mins) and new instance to be booted up (2-3 mins). If the application can not tolerate outage of 3-5 minutes then high availability clustering may be a good alternative
  • jordansissel/pleaserun: An attempt to abstract this “init” script madness. – Pleaserun is a tool to generate startup scripts for the wasteland of sorrow that is process launchers.

  • One Thing Well | Let’s Encrypt – Let’s Encrypt is now in public beta and offers a command line tool that makes the process of getting and renewing certificates easy, but you have to run it as root, and it’s designed to rewrite your web server’s configuration files. Here’s a selection of alternative tools and clients:
  • Tsung – It can be used to stress HTTP, WebDAV, SOAP, PostgreSQL, MySQL, LDAP and Jabber/XMPP servers. Tsung is a free software released under the GPLv2 license. The purpose of Tsung is to simulate users in order to test the scalability and performance of IP based client/server applications. You can use it to do load and stress testing of your servers. Many protocols have been implemented and tested, and it can be easily extended. It can be distributed on several client machines and is able to simulate hundreds of thousands of virtual users concurrently (or even millions if you have enough hardware …). Tsung is developed in Erlang, an open-source language made by Ericsson for building robust fault-tolerant distributed applications. [ via http://onethingwell.org/post/134852940551/tsung ]
  • Internet Redundancy with ASA SLA and IPSec – PacketU – I’ve seen a lot of examples of redundant Internet connections that use SLA to track a primary connection. The logic is that the primary Internet connection is constantly being validated by pinging something on that ISP’s network and routing floats over to a secondary service provider in the event of a failure. I was recently challenged with how this interacted with IPSec. As a result I built out this configuration and performed some fairly extensive testing.
