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 ([email protected]) for console access.

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

Disk Resizing Up and Down

Nov 8, 2003 by Christopher Aker
I just released a new feature for resizing disk images both larger and smaller. For resizing larger, the only change was that if you resize a disk image labeled as swap, it will delete and recreate the swap image. Previously it would resize the Image itself, but not re-make the swap within. For resizing smaller, […]

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 […]

Available now off the Member’s Overview page is the Reverse DNS Configuration Manager (look near the “Network Information” button — there is a link to it). It is fairly bare-bones at the moment, but get’s the job done. [b]Requirements[/b] Your reverse DNS hostname must first forward resolve to one of your IPs. I couldn’t find […]
