comment Not Getting Desired Results From Solr Facets
Nice! To be clear, I don't think the question doesn't belong here; this is definitely a gray area from my POV. I suggested SO because when in doubt there are just more eyes there. I'll follow up on the meta thread.

Have you tried this question on Stack Overflow? It seems like something that might get a better response there.

comment Why is Varnish not caching my index page properly?
Are you seeing any cache hits? There could be other values in the cookie which could be keeping it from caching much but still caching a little. If there are no hits at all, that would confirm an issue with your configuration.

@dan Your problem is solved, but for others who may get here later via search I've edited my answer to include my favorite link for Server Fault.

comment Apache VirtualHost - redirect from one domain to a specific page of another one *transparently*
That leads to two more questions, then: Are you sure mod_proxy is enabled? And, why use the P flag over just using mod_proxy's directives, when the mod_rewrite documentation says, "Avoid using this flag and prefer those directives, whenever you can."? (You may have a good reason, I'm just not seeing it in your question.)

comment Office Server Room With Bad HVAC Affecting Lungs
"This... high oxidizing potential, however, causes ozone to damage mucus and respiratory tissues in animals, and also tissues in plants, above concentrations of about 100 parts per billion. This makes ozone a potent respiratory hazard and pollutant near ground level." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone

Also possible that it's ozone produced by the electronics? That's no good either.

comment How to get rowcount for all tables in MySQL
This answer would be more useful if it went into more detail about the solution in the linked article. Links often go away; if this one does, this answer becomes useless.

comment Looking for open source app that offers simple HTTP web log parsing *with drill down*
A simple link without explanation is not a terribly helpful answer. Can you explain how AWStats solves the specific problem described in the question?

This is interesting. Can you explain a little more how this would work?

comment Deploy OS from Locally Stored WIM
Saber - Welcome to Server Fault! Thanks for the helpful answer; however, most of the value in this answer is in links, and links tend to rot. Your answer will be more valuable if you summarize the information from the articles in an edit.

comment Is it possible to install licensed software on Amazon EC2
I'm sure there's a better title for this question. I edited "custom" to "licensed", which seems better to me, but maybe there's a better word to describe how MS Excel is different from e.g. your very own fork of Apache.

comment How do I redirect a single url for a specific server block in an nginx config
I like "different server locations with include of shared zones" better. Nginx docs say if is evil and recommend avoiding it when possible. (But rewrite is one of the directives they say is safe inside if blocks, so this answer is perfectly correct.)

comment How to remove MySQL on boot
Every time I get used to how Linux handles startup, something changes, and it never gets easier to understand. (Sorry, nothing to do with your post, I'm just getting frustrated.)

@Ortix92, post that as an answer and accept it. We can answer our own questions here, when we find our own solutions.

You can also use ab for load testing to get an idea how to set your numbers up. This link has a good process for using ab to set the MaxClients number.

Good questions. Off the top of my head I don't have answers but your edits to the question should help.

It might be helpful if you expanded on why you think this configuration option would solve the original problem.

It, ummm, might be wise to disclose your association with sFlow, and read this section of the FAQ.
