You can point another dir with mysql cli set global tmpdir = "/path/to/dir". This new tmpdir can be actually created as tmpfs and store in memory, not on actual corrupted file system.

A lot of people tend to over-think this. Just think of these servers as if they were deployed in a colo or in a corporate datacenter. In that case, how would you back them up? Likely it would be via a "legacy" backup product (Netbackup, Amanda, BareOS, etc.) that is connected to a tape library or VTL. This is something you should consider doing for your ...

I would say a good backup happens much more often than once a month - but if you are ok with losing the last month of work on your server, that's up to you. Software that was actually designed to do backups have a lot of things going for them though. Off the top of my head: Automated. No chance of you forgetting to run them. Email notifications if they ...

Since the "Windows" part is not a requirement , i dare to suggest using ZFS. IT wil run on Linux (even if performances are not stellar ... yet) or FreeBSD or IllumOS I have a very similar workflow i use for my raw photos at home, I do it with USB3 sticks but the idea is the same 1)Create a mirrored zpool #sudo zpool status zmirrusb pool: zmirrusb ...

First thing, you should enable noclobber so this does not happen again. The option will prevent overwriting an existing file with redirection (>). To enable it, add the option to your .bashrc: $ echo 'set -o noclobber' >> ~/.bashrc Now, recovering the fille won't be simple but it is possible that you may still find it in the drive data. If you ...

Using the Shared Storage Option (Called as Enterprise Server Option in BE 2012), this may be possible. Have a look at this article for more info and requirements about this option - http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO24287

Yes. On every rotation (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly), rsnapshot first does a cp -L ("copy" with hard links only), and then runs rsync, which deletes the links and replaces them with new/updated files. If no files change during your whole rotation, you store only one copy of all files, and a bunch of links to the same data on disk. If you enable ...

This article: (http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2057353) looks like it points towards what you need. Be careful with IP address assignment because if your prod environment has any connection to your test lab, it can assume that that is production and revert machines to whatever settings is ...

You have a more serious problem. Basically, what the log is saying in plain English is that "Sorry - I cannot maintain filesystem consistency anymore, I give up and switch to read only mode to avoid completely trashing it". This is an extremely serious issue that takes priority. Raise a support issue with the hoster ASAP. In the meantime try to do the ...

Typically hot swap hard disk brackets are intended for incidental maintenance purposes and not for daily use. My recommendation would be to use external USB drives. That gives you the benefit of some extra protection for the disks as well as a connector that is designed for repeated unplugging and insertions. In addition it isn't dependant on "exotic" ...

The one document which tries to make sense of all this is the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard; a.k.a. the FHS. It does not provide an easy straightforward answer to your question, though. There seems to be 3 options: Use /opt/tunnel and keep all files relating to the application there. Use the packaging system and package your application as a Debian ...

I have seen something similar myself, although it was a few years ago. In my case it was problem memory and when copying data, there was some form of caching going on which I suspected was slowly using memory until it got to the problem memory and... boom! crashed computer. A memory test should identify this easily enough, or perhaps removing some memory ...

You have to add mysqldump or a script which dumps your database before the job run: RunScript { RunsWhen = Before FailJobOnError = Yes Command = "mysqldump ..." }

Take a look at the --get-selections and --set-selections options to dpkg. You export a list of current selections using dpkg --get-selections > my-selections. In order to restore the selections you first need to run dpkg --set-selections < my-selections and then apt-get dselect-upgrade to actually install the packages. Be aware that this will only ...
