A lot of companies are unsure which solution to choose and many may not be aware of Docker Swarm as an alternative to Kubernetes. One thing that many Sysadmins find is that Docker Swarm is simply easier, quicker to setup and maintain by far than Kubernetes.........

The issue is when you need to echo something as root/sudo, that it doesn't work. You can never do a sudo echo to an output file as you'd expect.
Take an example to clear out wasted RAM buffers/cache like this:
sudo echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
-bash: /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches: Permission denied
The solution is to run tee as sudo/root
What we do is echo 1, but then pipe it to the "tee" command as sudo........

Bonding is an excellent way to get both increased redundancy and throughput. It is similar to the "Network Teaming" feature in Windows.
There are a few different modes but we will use mode 6, I think it's the best of both worlds, as it is not just a failover, but it provides round robin, so you will get redundancy and load balancing. So if you have a 1G single port, you will have a combined throughput of 4G at this point. Just bear in mind that the true thr........

If you are using an older version of Linux based on Mint 18 or Ubuntu 16, you may want to get the PPA and get the latest version of Ansible that way:

How To Install Ceph
If you stopped an install of Ceph midway you will need to manually restart it with "pveceph install"
Remember that your VM needs to have working internet (gateway) and DNS in order to connect to the apt repo to download all of the packages that Ceph requires.
Remember to repeat these steps for each node that you want Ceph on.
A very common use case is that you don't want to waste time using a video editor that requires you to open it up and manually import the video clip and audio clip, then manually delete the old audio track and import the video and new audio. That's too much work and time since we don't want to go through the hassle.
ffmpeg is our solution, all we have to do is specify 3 variables and we're done!

You should only get this if you are using a Pentium II or something really old. The problem here is that newer kernels than 2.6 don't have true i386 support even if you tell it to compile as i386. It will still include features like cmov that break older computers from being able to work.
Generally for very old computers like above, you need to use a 2.6.x kernel and of course make sure it is i386 and all the binaries are as well.

This is sure simple if you follow the guide but it took a lot of hacking around to make this work on Debian/Ubuntu!
Now before you ask why bother running wine and python, the reason is because Python executables are NOT cross-platform. If you run pyinstaller in Linux, that binary will only run on Linux and the same if you do it in Windows. So it is preferable if you have a single environment that you can create Linux and Windows binaries from rather than running 2 separate........
The problem is that by default ssh-keygen loves to generate an easy to crack 2048 bit key (RSA). Supposedly having a larger keysize helps such as 4096 or 8096 but it is thought to be useless still against Quantum computing.
How can I check my existing keysize and type?

The output will be something like below followed by the hash. The first number is the key size and the second part will b........

It has been a big pain for a long-time to install Windows from a Linux environment. I used to run a windows install server and it never worked right for some reason (the install would fail on most servers).

Centos 6 requires GLIBC 2.12 however a lot of new programs you would want to compile may need a newer glibc. You can't remove the old glibc since the whole OS is based on it but you can install the updated glibc alongside it and do an export pointing to your updated GLIBC.
mkdir ~/glibc_install; cd ~/glibc_install
This through me for a loop when I would do a cp -rf or mv -f nothing would get overwritten even if piping y or yes to the command.

alias ll='ls -l --color=auto'
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
alias mv='mv -i'

Unfortunately to make it worse there doesn't seem to be any error log or more details about the issue.
It all comes down to a bug essentially where you are running an older kernel that doesn't support the newer Debian templates. The solution is to update your OpenVZ kernel.

Many people aren't aware but recently Dual-Master Replication setups have become increasingly popular. That's because you get similar features and benefits of having a full-blown cluster (difficult to setup and maintain and requires I believe 3 servers just as controllers).

This is a great way to use your ftp server space, for example on your web hosting account (althoughI believe many hosts don't allow storage like this), but if you have a VPS/Dedicated Server etc.., this would be perfect. Imagine how easy it is to work with an ftp account that you can just mount as a normal partition or directory in Linux, it would be great for backups etc..
curlftpfs - mount a ftp host as a local directory
Problems surfing web/servingI noticed sometimes websites wouldn't load at random through a FreeBSD box and other systems on the same link didn't have the issue. I believe it is because of the low default limit of 128 TCP connections that caused the problem. It would also slow down any traffic that requires many connections such as Bittorrent.
The fix is to increase the amount of connections to at least 1024
