comment File sharing on linux / unix
True, sshfs works wonders. But data encryption has a slight impact on performance.

comment What counts as experience?
Don't you think that if you technically qualify for a sysadmin job at all (since the IT consulting firm employs you) and you earn them $100-200/hour while getting $8/hour, you voluntarily agree to sell yourself and be treated like a slave? Of course less experience pays worse, but 200/8 that's 2500%! Selling yourself like this is giving up real value (you waste your time making somebody rich) for virtual value (acquiring the so-called experience). You might end up making those $200/hour yourself in 20 years, but that implies some poor younger dudes working for $8/hours instead of you.

comment UDP Flood/DoS or What?
@ErikA: this puts any ISP into a very bad light, because if they refuse to deal with DDoS attacks against residential clients this makes them accessories. This is a situation that can't be dealt by the user itself and it needs to be brought upstream. Refusing to help due to lack of business-class service is plain blackmail.

Still a good experience for the poor guy. He could have been working for 30 YEARS and have a heart attack in front of you.

comment Shutting down web server for maintenance
What if you have a lot of virtual hosts served by a single server instance? Do you put lots of app_offline.htm for each of them?

comment What is the difference between renice and chrt commands in Linux?
So chrt is "stronger" than renice? Does it make sense to use chrt and renice together? The manpages look cryptic to me, I'd like to read about some use cases to understand the differences.

comment How to test if a remote host port is accessible or not in Unix
I wouldn't advise to rely on this trick, because at least debian bash packages have this feature stripped off.

comment Is there an application to monitor bandwidth usage broken out to the application level for Linux (Ubuntu)?
Your fault for not stating explicitly "watch the network for a period of time" in your initial question :) If you are a hardcore SQL guy, you can install ulogd, set it up to log into a database (it supports many of them) and extract data for reports with SQL queries.

ulogd also has his own config file, did you tune it to suit your needs?

comment What do I need to know about Information Technology (IT)?
@Chris S, you obviously never lived in a very poor country, where just one computer was a huge luxury not so many years ago, computer geeks had to learn computer stuff by reading books and could afford to buy their first own computer after saving for a couple of months from what they were earning at their first computer related job
