comment MySQL goes away when traffic volume spikes
On the off chance you haven't forgotten that you ever asked this question, or in case someone finds this page via a search, the most likely candidate for an answer, given your reply in this comment, is that you've got hanging MySQL connections that are clogging up the database server. Enforcing a wait_timeout or similar may be enough to mask the problem, but the real solution will be using SHOW PROCESSLIST and some detective work to figure out what piece of broken code is keeping the connection(s) open.

comment Why is there less latency on loopback than on a carp interface?
A packet sent to an on-box address, whether addressed through lo or an e{th,n} port, never hits the hardware in Linux, regardless. I can't speak authoritatively with regards to BSD, though.

You'd still need some way to turn on the exhaust fan, though.

comment Computer controlled winch
I'd disagree; this is a pretty common topic in the sysadmin world--environmental monitoring and what the hell to do when said monitor goes off, other than to panic. We're in an N+2 facility now, but many people aren't, and a good backup plan is worth its weight in (not-dead) servers, no matter where you are.

Is there a reason not to simply run your Tomcat server on port 80 natively?

Can you post some of the configuration and profiling information I requested in #161286? It'll really help us answer your question.

Forwarded X is going to be faster than VNC, if you're bandwidth-constrained, in almost all circumstances.

comment What ports are needed for a Windows XP client to acces a folder on a SAMBA server?
It'll work like a charm. Only thing to be aware of is, if this is traversing the public Internet, there's a fair chance tcp/445 might be blocked by one of your ISPs on either end.
