I'm running my own startup which sells software to help companies monitor their energy consumption in detail. My programming tasks center on the Java / OSGi backend and a web-based GUI that is currently being migrated from ActionScript / Flash to JS / AJAX.

comment On Linux, what is a faster way than `find` or `diff -r` to see if something inside a directory has changed?
I have used rsnapshot previously, it's great, I know. However, my problem here is the FTP target, really.

+1 for interesting, though I can't see me using it in my scenario.

comment In an Apache + lighttpd setup, who should be the proxy?
The scenario I'm outlining seems to be quite a typical way to improve scalbility. It makes a lot of sense to me, because you assign different tasks (dynamic and static content) to different programs who are especially good at it.

Well, yes, that's what I thought of, too, but is there anything faster? For my purposes, the find could abort as soon as it found any file that was newer.

+1 for usefulness, only I don't really want incremental backup.

How's that different from looking at the file system with find and screen-scrape the ouput?

comment Is there a working Linux backup solution that uses inotify?
That's an interesting link, I had even thought of implementing that myself. But why does it say on the page that it will retransfer large files for each change? I thought rsync itself would already avoid that?

comment How exactly do name servers handle unknown subdomains?
OK, thanks for clarifying that. So I'd put several host records, i. e. A records for the names example.com, www.example.com, ftp.example.com in a zone file that can then live on either my server or the provider's, or both? And what happens then with doesntexist.example.com, how's that resolved?
