Basic CLI (Command Line Interface) Tools Pt. 2

Posted 06-19-2013 at 06:35 PM by Nbiser

In Pt. 1, I covered basic command line tools and commands. I will continue that theme here, in Pt. 2.

First I would like to cover the command ps. This command is used to view processes. In its basic form without any options its output looks like this:
nbiser@linux-vqbm:~> ps
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
14933 pts/1    00:00:00 ps
17047 pts/1    00:00:00 bash
Here it only shows the most basic processes that are running on the system. PID stands for the process...

I'll do a detailed write up on that at some point, but in the mean time, here are two sites that have useful information on load balancing:

I haven't put the load balancer in place yet because I'm not getting enough...

Gnome Encfs Manager

Posted 06-17-2013 at 11:38 AM by sridhar11

The Gnome Encfs Manager (or short GEncfsM) is an easy to use manager and mounter for encfs stashes featuring per-stash configuration, Gnome Keyring support, a tray menu inspired by Cryptkeeper but using the AppIndicator API and lots of unique features.
