Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

I can haz iftop x 5?

No, apparently not.

Code:
# lsof | grep bpf                                                       
iftop      1106    _iftop    4u    VCHR       23,5        0t0   58522 /dev/bpf5
dhclient  10196      root    5u    VCHR       23,9 0t15376716   58526 /dev/bpf9

So, one of my big fears on my home network is a virus outbreak. Granted, my wife is an incredibly paranoid web surfer, and in the 12 years we've been together there has been just one virus issue (and that was after our niece used her computer to surf some "ooh, I'm a vampire...I sparkle!" type of social sites). Sigh.

So, why the rekindled fear? My daughter is old enough to start using the internet, and she hasn't had time to build up the same paranoia that her mother...

Create vent user. Untar...

Spent a bit building out an Oracle RHCS cluster for a customer. So Oracle Engineers install Oracle 11g, I configure the RHCS cluster, and I notify the Account Manager that all that's left are a few tests.

Simple tests. Like, "clusvcadm -R oracle-svc". Ok, passed that. "clusvcadm -r oracle-svc -m db2". Passed that one, too. Now to the fun tests...
