comment Is there an issue with too many entries in a directory?
@FalconMomot I have found a blog entry of someone who ran into this very problem. Apparently ext3 file systems cannot handle more than 32K links in a directory. I find this hard to believe - even HFS+ and NTFS can handle more than 32K links per directory.

This may be it. We use ext3 on our Linux directories. If the directory can't have more than 32K, it makes sense to warn on 30K and go critical on 32K.

comment Is there an issue with too many entries in a directory?
@ChrisS - I'm not an OS expert. My gut tells me that this alert is useless, but I don't have the expertise to say for sure. Some one added this alert, but we don't know who and why. Do they know something I don't. Is it a good idea to have 32K entries in a single directory? No, but, this is how Jira works. Besides, Jira doesn't sort thru these dirs. It knows the path right to the directory. The question is whether things will crash and burn when there are 32,001 entries. Do we really need this alert?

comment Jenkins builds not showing up in UI
@kleist All I can do is a restart when this happens. Sometimes I can just get away with reloading the configuration.

comment Apache httpd LDAP integration
Okay, I found a solution. It's not what you recommended, but your explanation and links lead me to this solution. I tried the filtering, but it didn't seem to work. Probably because I didn't have the Require valid-user line.

comment Apache httpd LDAP integration
Thanks. It looks like this is an issue with CollabNet's Subversion package. Previously, I've either used the native package or rolled my own. It looks like the way they've compiled Apache, it forces to use SVN's authz. I'll try the filter to see if it works.

comment Apache httpd LDAP integration
Sorry, missed two commas in the Require ldap-group. I had to edit what I was doing in order to hide proprietary information. (Hint: Password isn't really swordfish). However, the official Apache documentation for Require ldap-group specifically states "Do not surround the group name with quotes". I copied the LDAP group directly from ADExplorer, so I know it's correct.
