comment Why is Munin being annoying?
Well, there it is. The usual suspects were where I looked first, but somehow the crontab from /etc/cron.d/munin-cron got entered into Root's crontab. It was set to run as the "munin" user, but user crontabs won't listen to that field.

comment Mysql high availability
I haven't had the same experience with MySQL master<->master replication, and it's only been about 6 months in production. On top of that, master/slave replication with software configuration for which server to use for reads and writes is totally out of the question, as we're hosting web pages for customers. and we're not about to go around editing Wordpress installations to make that happen!

comment What are your best senior level Linux interview questions
"Mail" and "ntpdate". I could use Mail to call for help, and use NTP to determine my exact lattitude and longitude. :)

Clean up uncertainty of whether this can be done via PS (source: comment on the question), add link to docs.

comment If one SMTP Server is down, routing all requests to another, how to achieve?
I've recently tried to implement this, and came up with the fact that load balancing SMTP isn't so simple. You either have to enforce the use of authenticated SMTP (try switching 10,000 clients' configuration to this new configuration sometime), or have a load balancer that only allows certain IP ranges to send e-mail, or you'll have an open proxy server. Unfortunately, I haven't found a load balancer that does the latter yet.
