After a lull in voice activities my lab is in tatters so its back to square 1.

Setting up the external conectivity through a typical NAT firewall arrangement...

Posted 03-15-2013 at 02:27 AM by sridhar11

Icinga is an enterprise grade open source monitoring system which keeps watch over networks and any conceivable network resource, notifies the user of errors and recoveries and generates performance data for reporting. Scalable and extensible, Icinga can monitor complex, large environments across dispersed locations.

Icinga is a fork of Nagios and is backward compatible. So, Nagios configurations, plugins and addons can all be used with Icinga. Though Icinga retains all the existing...

Even though I love Linux I have these moments when I think, just as I get somewhere I'm back to the start.

A good $PS1 for displaying long paths in the bash prompt

Posted 03-13-2013 at 11:29 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 03-13-2013 at 11:30 PM by the dsc
Tags bash, prompt, ps1

Code:
PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\t \u $(if [ ${#PWD} -gt 30 ] ; then myPWD="${PWD:0:12}…/\W" ; myPWD="${myPWD:0:25}…" ; else myPWD=$PWD; fi ; echo $myPWD) $ '
It will display full paths smaller than 30 characters entirely, but for longer paths it will get only the first characters of the whole path, and the fist characters of the last folder in the full path.

The end result is something like:
