Looks like I’ll be going back to my real incognito mode of simply using another firefox profile and deleting it afterwards.
One solution I tried was to turn up the time between tests from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. This still had generated problems, as munin-cron runs still weren’t done after 10 minutes, and any greater time between polls meant subpar graph granularity.
My final solution was to modify munin’s cron entry to the following:
*/7 * * * * munin test ( ! "$(pidof /usr/bin/munin-cron)" ) && test -x /usr/bin/munin-cron && nice -19 /usr/bin/munin-cron I ran a test to see if there’s still a PID active from munin-cron, and if not check to see if the munin-cron executable exists.
I’ve recently come back from the Apache Retreat 2010. Here are some pictures that I took!

There are 2 major parts to this system. The first is the cf.classes file, which simply describes which hosts belong in each class. The relevant classes are as follows:
service_munin_host = ( larch ) service_munin_node = ( binhost columbia coos fir fraxinus g1 g2 g3 g4 ) package_munin_node = ( service_munin_node www_phpbb_com ) The second part is the cf.
First off, you’re going to have to install the munin package. You’ll also need to have a web server installed, I prefer apache:
# For Gentoo, emerge munin apache # For CentOS/Fedora yum install munin apache # For Debian aptitude install munin apache Gentoo and CentOS both install the HTTP root in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/munin. After setup, the graphs will be available at http://localhost/munin
Debian requires a bit more attention. Debian munin installs the HTTP root in /var/www/munin.
Munin showed the most promise and compatibility with many of the services we run at the OSL, such as memcached and varnish. I liked how the plugin system is set up independently on each host, and that each plugin can be managed, configured, and consolidated through symlinks.
For the benefit of the uninitiated the setup on each node goes something like this:
#For gentoo emerge munin #For Fedora/CentOS yum install munin-node #For Debian/Ubuntu apt-get install munin-node Each client is a “node”, and runs the daemon ‘munin-node’.
I’ve been to several LAN parties recently, and have been getting a very accurate understanding of how much a pain it is to lug around a 30lb case, 30 inch monitor, and all the accessories. I’ve looked at gaming laptops; they all seem too expensive, too expensive, and too slow compared to something I could build myself, for cheap.
The total cost for the project needed to be under $80. I already have a good gaming rig, and the convenience of such a thing is only good if the cost is low.
In an effort to modernise my gaming rig, I purchased a second nVidia 8800GT to compliment my first. Benchmarks and reviews indicate that this setup yields comparable performance to many of today’s more expensive offerings. This is a log of the installation and testing of the cards.
The Accelero S2 is an aftermarket heatsink used to provide additional cooling to video cards. Although it was originally intended for lower-end cards, the greater surface area is able to cool an nVidia 8800GT adequately.
Support is in the mainline kernel except for:
Fingerprint reader Touchscreen Panel buttons Wireless It’s an Atheros 5008 card, supported fully by the ath5k driver. Early driver versions in old kernels such as 2.6.30 have very shaky hardware support, therefore unless you’re running the latest available code, I would recommend swapping it out. I’ve removed the integrated wireless card in favour of an Intel 5350AGN, which has been working well in the laptop.

1. Obtain your Windows ISO. Probably using MSDNAA or something.
2. Make sure your hard drive is partitioned properly. This means leaving one partition open for windows. Make sure it`s easily identifiable from the windows installer(I give Windows 120GB of my 160GB drive).
