comment How to fetch a cpu status thought net-snmp
This is highly defendant on the device and what it exposes over snmp. Some implementations (Linux, for example) allows you to define your own OIDs. Which device are you asking about?

comment Update packages on very old ubuntu
Replace that host. You're in for headache and heartache if you don't. The number of php vulnerabilities alone on that version is shocking. I'd recommend that you pick an LTS release given how often you have been updating your software.

comment How to start process as a daemon?
True, it's not quite that simple, but at least he's pointing the poster toward an actual daemon vs a hack with nohup or screen. Handle cwd and standard file handles then you get even closer to an actual daemon. Do you run apache in a screen session?

comment I accidently zipped my whole server
If your DB software was running while you ran those commands, you might not be able to recover the DBs. Gzip would have happily zipped up the file, then it unlinked it. But your DB software still had the file open and it was committing the changes to it. As soon as it stopped, the file was then removed.

Always get the IPMI card. Check to see if you can retrofit these, chances are you can. They are worth every penny, IMHO.

comment Managing battery relearn cycles on LSI and similar RAID controllers
Te newer LSI controllers are supposed to have a 'transparent relearn' option. In practice (on Dell C class hardware) I haven't seen this work.
