comment Raid 1 across 3 partitions, what does it mean?
RAID1 mirrors over 3 drives are not that uncommon in my experience.

comment Expose a mongodb streaming data server that's behind a firewall, to the internet
You would ssh out from your monogo instance to the external server to create the tunnel. You can then forward a remote locally accessible TCP port back over the SSH channel to back to your client machines mongo port. When you access localhost:27017 on the external host, the data ends up on the mongo box. You'd need to run any of this past IT/Security as you are technically punching a hole through the firewall into your network for your external host, just doing it a different way.

"and have yet to run into an issue" is not really good enough to risk data!

comment How to setup an automatic failover firewall?
As Matt's answer says, keepalived is the simplest way as it covers a lot of the management but IPVS has been included in the kernel since 2.4.something. You probably still need to add the admin tools to use a VRRP address. I've never tried it without keepalived though.

comment Howto configure openSuSE firewall to route local traffic to local ports
The firewall will be iptables based though and it's definitely capable of applying rules 'inside'. If you can't configure it via SuSefirewall then you could add them manually.

comment Block employee access to public cloud
#1. Doesn't have to be that drastic. Network segregation is a valid solution where public access points don't have to run from your internal or secure corporate network. If you provide a simple, audited interface to shift data between the two you get a better idea of what data does need to come and go.

comment Apache httpd 2.2.16 creates new sessions every time
The requests going to tomcat1 are parsing a completely different JSESSIONID: (J2EE4847100)ID1435349250DBfa8033a3ce4db1f64ba8d682cf8c5736533dc780End Do you know where that comes from?

comment Apache httpd 2.2.16 creates new sessions every time
So it's just the load balancer that is failing to balance any more. Does one of the balance members get marked offline, even for a tiny amount of time? Your log snippits imply it happens on both as you have both 01 and 02 in there but just checking

comment Something eats all memory on my server, but it is NOT fs cache
even RES can't be entirely trusted... but in your case where you have single processes taking huge amounts of memory the % error is small. It fails if you are totalling the RES of an apache httpd processes with 100 children in which you get a huge error due to shared memory.

@Daniil ignore the VIRT column, it doesn't relate to used physical memory.

Can you cat /proc/meminfo and also run ps_mem.py to get a better idea of process memory usage.

comment Apache httpd 2.2.16 creates new sessions every time
Do you have some example request logs from when the issue occurs? Does a request with a JSESSIONID at httpd pass to Tomcat without a JSESSIONID?

comment Remove Corrupt File With Bad File Name Linux
a double dash ends generally help with file names starting with a - character, so they don't get interpreted as arguments

comment Use one volume for multiple EC2 servers
You can use s3fs via FUSE to make an S3 bucket look like a local filesystem and copy files into it, just remember that even though it looks, walks and quacks like a file system, it's not a real file system and has eventual consistency

comment How do services with large ingest rates install enough hard disks fast enough?
Someone still has to build/connect/test the shipping container server at a time and google/facebook tend to do their hardware in house.
