comment Is there a good alternative to analog for web server log analysis?
I like the idea of Piwik, but every time I've thrown real logs at it, it has choked. Just ran 11M lines for 45 days of logs through it, and the resulting database was ~5GB and even after doing table optimizes and analyzes, it couldn't load any of the widgets within the timeout. Piwik seems to be more suitable for very small sites.

comment Is this a critical RAID error?
The array is still optimal, which means that the array thinks that it can still recover from a drive failure. The reality of this may be different depending on whether you have run a media verify on the array yet. In my case, I was getting this error and smartctl (see the other answer) says there were 115 uncorrected read errors. It could be that it got a read error, calculated the data from the other discs and re-wrote that missing data, correcting the device marginal block.

comment How to broadcast ARP update to all neighbors in Linux?
@TomTom: Yes, if you are failing over via heartbeat/corosync, whatever. However, if you manually move services from one machine to another, particularly if you are on Cisco gear, manually sending a gratuitous ARP is extremely useful. I agree that it isn't something you do frequently, but as someone who has also been doing IT for 20 years, I have found myself in a number of situations where I needed to do it.

comment How can I configure Apache to use more of my CPU?
Your point about being able to rule out the CPU as the bottle-neck is a good one. Otherwise, your message could be more helpful: References to the other apache performance Q&As, what information is missing from the httpd.conf file, you ask a lot of questions, without providing information on how Ryan can get those answers.
