comment Hiding hosts in Nagios
I dont see why this was downvoted, while hidden hostgroups are NOT available in each nagios version or clone it's one of the most elegant ways to do this.

comment Does two pfsense + CARP necessarily require two WAN IP?
Any VRRP / HSRP setup I've seen so far has not used IPs from the attached subnet for the cluster interfaces themselves.

comment Why should we purchase a dedicated load balancer when the firewall can do it?
While I think that you're right that failover is enough for your case, and I've seen nice "middle ground" as load balancer pools in Juniper firewalls or even pfSense... I still think you're wrong with one thing: the words "such a simple task". Don't assume anything is simple unless you've already mastered it. Load balancing is part of highly redundant infrastructures and we can aim to get it simple, but basically - do that for a job and one day you get the ticket that you spend days on and never really figure because it's some twisted tcp bug. Nothing is simple if you look closely.

comment How to generate netflow data in linux
This isn't freebsd where such software can be developed against already in place kernel features like netgraph. Hardly any way to do this without a custom module. The good thing (and that's why i'm commenting) is that the sources are now on github and it also has dkms support now. Looks pretty good. github.com/aabc/ipt-netflow

Thank you that's simple and elegant. I did not come up with that idea, as much as I tried ;)

comment Reloading a kernel “live” in CentOS / RHEL 6
"No reboot" is a different thing and has been available i.e. with ksplice for like 5 years. I used it on desktops @ work to make sure I don't have to reboot when I don't want to.

Alessandro, how do you manage to have the lowpri routes pointing to the other firewall? do you have the static route sync turned off?

comment Centos /etc/hosts doesnt resolve my hostname
I'm puzzled by this too and would love to understand why CentOS is (under some circumstances) not able to correctly configure that on setup. We're talking about early 1980's problems here.

Would suggest that people don't complain about patches fixing a problem in an opensource software.
