Updated Console Access Program (lish)

Nov 8, 2003 by Christopher Aker
The Linode Shell, or lish, is the small script that runs when you connect to the host (username@hostX.linode.com) for console access. Lish now prompts you if you want to retry to connect to the console, instead of just attempting to reattach so many times and then disconnecting. This also solves the problem for people who […]

Host Load Average

Nov 8, 2003 by Christopher Aker
The “Host Summary” widget on the LPM Overview page now displays the current “Host Load Average” updated every minute or so. The load is broken down into four groups: idle, low, medium, and high. If you split the bar into 10 ticks, each tick equals 1 loadavg. Thanks, and enjoy! -Chris

Host Summary and Average CPU Statistics

Oct 31, 2003 by Christopher Aker
I added a new [b]”Host Summary”[/b] widget to the Member’s Overview page. It conveniently displays which host you’re on, along with your average CPU usage on that host. This is calculated by recording the number of “CPU seconds” your Linode thread(s) consume, and comparing that against the total number of seconds from the beginning of […]

Gentoo Linux 1.4 distro available

Aug 22, 2003 by Christopher Aker
Gentoo Linux 1.4, available through the Distro Wizard. I “emerged” a Gentoo Linux 1.4 filesystem from stage 3, compiled and optimized for >= Pentium4 (Xeon). I will admit, it might be a little rough around the edges. Feedback would be appreciated. Gentoo Site: http://www.gentoo.org/ Enjoy! -Chris

Resize Disk Images

Aug 12, 2003 by Christopher Aker
Linode.com Version 1.0.45 – Resize Disk Image (also resizes ext2/3 filesystems automagically). Members Section –> Disk Images –> select a disk image. You can resize from there. A few notes… This will resize a disk image of ANY type (including RAW, swap, ext2, ext3), but it will only “expand” the filesystem if it’s labled as […]

Recent Updates

Jul 8, 2003 by Christopher Aker
I made some modifications to the Distro Wizard. It now calculates and sets the default image size to (freespace-swap) rather than defaulting to 100 MB. This should help reduce the number of mis-deployments. I also added the minimum size to the drop-down box, so you don’t have to go fetch the dists page. We launched […]
