comment Can I run a cron job more frequently than every minute?
@duskwuff I know, I know. :) It's just something I find annoying. Nothing wrong with answering the question and mentioning good reasons not to use that method. But a simple "don't", no matter how well written, is not an answer to the question and imho belongs into comments.

comment Can I run a cron job more frequently than every minute?
As answers further down show, it is very well possible, albeit a bit hackish. Why is YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG!!!! the accepted answer here, when it doesn't answer the question at all?

comment How does Chrome/webRTC select which TURN server to use if multiple options are given?
I think the issue is that this function is just for collecting STUN responses, which TURN servers can also do. It just uses the next best turn server when no stun server is available. The relaying decision is more complex apparently: stackoverflow.com/questions/26342589/… ;-)

comment Which method can I use to automate DNS-failover with monitoring?
In the meantime I found out that it's easy to invoke scripts on failure with Nagios. Your answer takes the horror out of having to modify zone files in a bash script. ;-)

Btw, TTL being ignored is really much less of a factor than people on the internet make you think. I've done that many times when moving webservers and preparing that with a 5M TTL. After about an hour 95% of clients usually have caught up. Of course, there are always one or two (out of thousands) that don't get it even after a week. :)

comment Which method can I use to automate DNS-failover with monitoring?
I'm very well aware of this and of course there is on-site redundancy. But since we are colocating with different ISPs, also for redundancy reasons, this is our last line of defense when a disgruntled DC employee pees on the border routers.

comment Linux server out of space
Nope. :-) Depending on the program, maybe you can get it to release the file handle differently. As a general idea, "kill -HUP" could work. SIGHUP may or may not cause a lot of "things". I would like to expand my original answer (below) in light of the above one with a facepalm ...

comment How does Chrome/webRTC select which TURN server to use if multiple options are given?
I did award the bounty, because it expires in four hours and your answer is the only one. :-) Though I'm not entirely sure if it is correct. We currently run two TURN servers for an application (US and EU hosted). Since the code for adding the turn servers is always the same, only one TURN server should be used. However, both see a similar amount of usage. (The app is Chrome only) ... There is definitely a selection process. The question is how it works.
