comment How to get monit to only alert once when a check fails, not when it comes back successful?
does sound like a bad check. You should be monitoring the service it provides. If at some point you cluster this service so a reboot does not equal an outage you'll get someone out of bed for nothing.

comment How do I get anycast for my servers?
putting some more thought into it, we do own a /19 and /22 which are also on the bgp tables as our isp do our anycast also, but only the /29 is anycasted. i guess if we'd not had the larger blocks they'd have complained about table space, dunno though, was set up before I got here. You may well be right though.

Just making sure it's understood that only most AS filter on a /24. We're using a /29.

the sudo password will be your own password, if you're allowed admin rights on the machine it'll let you run stuff as root.

comment Configuring Synology NAS as freeIPA client
sssd isn't a show stopper. For your use case it just caches the credentials so you can still login if the network to the ldap server went away. Centos 5 and older don't have sssd either.

@MadHatter actually, these are the last lines he did and they're -I they'll be the first in the chain so it's probably ok to assume there's no preceding drops or rejects.

fwiw; if anything is connected to the internet you can be sure someone/something is trying to break into it in a matter of seconds.
