comment Links inside intranet: use fully qualified name, or just hostname?
Good point about people accidentally logging in to the wrong site with a short URL - didn't think about the security implications.

+1 for not jumping to conclusions, and instead just asking the client to explain what they have in mind.

comment How do I enable characters like [Æ, Ø, Å] in PuTTY/Debian?
@Codemonkey: Hm, weird. Did you try input after starting a program like vim on the remote server? Did that work? I'm afraid I can't really help much beyond that. Maybe try asking on the chat.

comment Monitoring bespoke software with Zenoss
Interesting paper. However, it seems this does not answer the question asked. The paper is only about checking that processes are running. The OP was asking about how to monitor specific metrics provided by a process, such as the length of some internal queue.

@Andy S: Have tried to give some Windows information. If you need more help, consider asking a new question (something like "How can I extend the SNMP agent provided by MS Windows?").

@Andy S: Good question. I've never tried this on Windows, but it should work. I expanded my answer to try and help.

comment SCOM 2007 versus Zenoss (or other open source)
@SteveBurkett: Just for the record: RRDTool (which Zenoss uses) aggregates old data in a similar way, to allow you to retain old data without bloating the datavbase.

comment pg_restore taking much longer than pg_dump
@Stefano: Actually, production issues are not a problem, as I need the dump/restore for automated Q/A tests. However, the Q/A environment should be easy to set up (because ideally each dev should have his/her own, in addition to several company-wide environments), and requiring a dedicated DBMS installation with all kinds of backup scripts is something I would like to avoid.

comment pg_restore taking much longer than pg_dump
@Stefano: Interesting option; I didn't know this was possible. I don't think this is feasible for us, though, as has quite a few constraints (need to shutdown DBMS, need to dump/restore all databases). I fear this is only feasible if you have a PostgreSQL installation all to yourself, which I cannot assume.

comment Why does my memory used (accounting for cache) does not correspond to my processes memory usage?
Could you post the output of free, and of ps aux? Maybe we spot something.
