Using a script to get your IP address

Posted 01-07-2013 at 11:33 AM by sag47

A friend of mine was complaining today how their work place doesn't parse the IP address from ifconfig but asks for manual input from the user. This is the dumbest thing ever. In case you're ever encountered by this here's a horrible one liner to get the job done quick and dirty.

Also, you may need to replace eth2 with your correct interface (such as eth1).
Code:
ifconfig | sed -ne '/^eth2/,/^\s\+Interrupt/p' | awk '$0 ~ /inet addr/ { print $2 }' | cut -d: -f2

Better filtered mail notifications

Posted 10-31-2012 at 09:18 AM by sag47

Note: this post is not about mail filtering but about getting better notified on mail that is already filtered. I will assume you have an understanding of bash scripting and how grep works.

Back story
This is going to be a short blog post. Mostly with commands. Basically I run a media server for online courses/lectures called Echo360 ESS. At some point the LVM volume which holds the lecture captures nearly filled up. I was getting Icinga alerts on it and by looking at the rate of data generation in munin showed me I had better hop to it. So that's what this post is about.

The fun stuff

SELinux and Icinga

Posted 08-05-2012 at 12:39 AM by sag47
Updated 08-05-2012 at 12:57 AM by sag47

Today I ran into an SELinux problem when installing icinga. I followed their documentation "Adjusting the SELinux settings". However my cgis still would not run. When I ran,
Code:
cat /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -v
I received the following output,
Code:
#============= httpd_sys_script_t ==============
# src="httpd_sys_script_t" tgt="initrc_tmp_t" class="file", perms="{ read getattr open }"
# comm="tac.cgi"
