Apr 22, 2005
by Christopher Aker
New feature in the LPM: Filesystem Helpers [b]What is it?[/b] Currently, the only helper that’s been implemented is “Disable updatedb”, which disables any cron jobs that run the updatedb command. This should help, if not eliminate, the high nightly load averages experienced on the hosts when a number of Linodes run updatedb at the same […]

HTTP-Retrievable Linode Stats (in XML)

Mar 16, 2005
by Christopher Aker
By request of satyap, I’ve extended the [url=https://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=776]bw-xml script [/url]to include more data. [code]https://www.linode.com/members/bw/?user=[linodeUsername] https://www.linode.com/members/info/?user=[linodeUsername][/code] Since this is XML, the old /bw/ URL returns the identical data. The http request must come from one of the IPs of [linodeUsername]. There is no access control other than this. If that’s an issue, let me know. Example […]

CentOS 4.0 now available

Mar 14, 2005

CentOS 4.0 now available through the Distro Wizard. [img]https://www.linode.com/images/logos/centoslogo-64.png[/img] “udev” is installed, but won’t run on startup. To enable (if you know what you’re doing), grep for “udev” in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and uncomment the line. It’s likely that this package can just be removed completely. I also disabled bdb in /etc/my.cnf, which is needed since it […]

Linode Wiki

Jan 3, 2005
by Christopher Aker
Hello, I’ve had a few requests about a user-managed Wiki for Linode, so here it is: https://www.linode.com/wiki/ The Linode Wiki is still in its infancy right now, but I’m hoping with your contributions it will become a good resource for Linode users and possibly take the place of the dated FAQ off the Support page.
