For me, fun is taking a program, language, whatever and making it do things it's designer never envisioned it doing. It comes in handy when I'm asked to do something a little outside the norm as part of my job.

comment Better/alternate front-end/graphs for munin?
As noted in my edit, I'm not interested in a way to reduce how lossy munin is but rather a tool/deamon that replaces the data logger with something that uses a non-lossy DB while leaving the munin-node side (the data sources) untouched. (If I had to, I expect I could write the data logger bit in ~1kloc by using SQLite or MySQL. But that doesn't give me a dashboard.)

comment Better/alternate front-end/graphs for munin?
I may have mucked up the terminology; the piece I'm looking for a replacement for is the stuff that uses RRD. From the little I've searched, it seems that the munin (as distinct from munin-node) is fairly well attached to RRD, so I expect what I'm looking for would replace it more or less completely.

comment Odd results from ping
By the look of it, that was also causing other problems with my connection (I was having a hard time getting video to stream correctly and after turning that off, it seems fine).

You would think ping would cache that :b

Well, I won't count that as a viable solution :o)

So you are able to reproduce the described problem on your system? --- Crud. I was hoping that this was a symptom of some config issue (I've been getting less than stellar network performance lately).

comment How to restrict Linux find by prefix?
I'm fairly sure that would do what I want, but even the first find is to slow: i.e. I have other problems. :(

@Eduardo: If it's looking at extra subdirs, it is most definitively NOT fast enough.

1) So for is not subject to command line length limits? 2) memory pressure is an issue.
