Building a Linux Cluster, Part 1

Post date: April 18, 2005, 03:04 Category: Network Views: 2901 Comments
Tutorial quote: Linux clusters have escaped. As the general popularity of the Linux operating system increases, more complex solutions built with it are becoming increasingly common in the "traditional" (more conservative) IT world. Linux computer clusters, whose provenance was originally universities and research institutions such as the U.S. National Laboratories, are showing up in increasing numbers as high-performance computing solutions within such areas as oil and gas exploration, computer-aided engineering, visualization, and software development. Linux clusters providing highly-available web, mail, and other infrastructure services are also increasingly common. If past computing history is any indicator of future trends, widespread use of Linux clusters in the mainstream IT world cannot be far behind.

Install OpenWRT, Chillispot, FreeRadius Based Managed Hotspot(s) Including PayPal Payment Gateway

Post date: March 23, 2008, 14:03 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 6714 Comments
Tutorial quote: If you have ever tried to implement one of the hotspot HowTos on this and other sites, it might have dawned on you that this is not an easy feat to accomplish. Amazingly most solutions also leave out the most important part – how to get paid by the punters using the hotspot. Some will offer prepaid solution or access tickets that need to be printed, but this will require staff being involved on the premises. And in particular, once you want to offer a professional service and not just a toy concept it gets tricky – and expensive. Just imagine all the servers you need to provide redundant and load balanced freeradius, mysql and web servers. It is generally not worth the effort and expense for just one hotspot – unless of course you are willing to accept outages, unhappy customers etc.

Passive Checks and NSCA using Nagios

Post date: December 8, 2008, 10:12 Category: Network Views: 5545 Comments
Tutorial quote: Nagios is a very powerful platform because it is easy to extend. A great feature that Nagios offers is the ability for third-party software or other Nagios instances to report information on the status of services or hosts. This way, Nagios does not need to schedule and run checks by itself, but other applications can report information as it is available to them. Nagios also offers a tool for sending passive check results for hosts and services over a network.

This chapter describes passive checks in detail. It gives practical examples of when and how they can be used. It also shows how to use NSCA (Nagios Service Check Acceptor)for sending notifications.
