Monitoring issues rise again. I have read several reviews of MOM monitoring system from Microsoft. Here is one. My personal opinion is that there is nothing better there then Netsaint and MRTG. One problem I have in plans of solving is Netsaint to mrtg config converter. Or vice versa.
Nothing much today:
- crossover plugin finally started to work (problem was with the NIC, not with the plugin itself).
- MySQL rpms for version 3.23.49 built good, but no changes noticed in handling foreign keys/references. Maybe it’s just me.
- 2.4.18 kernel rpms were built good too. Probably I will upgrade my machine tomorrow. Reasons for upgrade: new scheduler and fixes in USB.
While studing the subject of migration from Microsoft to Linux, I came accross nice description of how to set up authentification of Linux box in NT domain.
I also changed all links on this page in such a way that printed version is readable and actually usefull :)
I have installed bash programmable completion. While it is a littl bit noisy about me not having bash of exactly the version it needs, I still get a lot of satisfaction. My TAB hit/miss ratio has grown incredeably, since I was pushing TAB key for most of the times I use it now anyway (huh? :) ).
It often happens so that administrator’s password for MySQL is lost or forgotten. The easiest way to fix the problem is to open /var/lib/mysql/mysql/user.MYD in hex editor and replace the encrypted string near “localhost root” with spaces. Then mysql service should be restarted, and that’s it.
