A "Linux systems specialist", did claim my previous business card and did so from 2001 to May 2013. Now it says "Senior System Administrator" in another company, Stonesoft.

My heart also has a place for FreeBSD.

A MySQL backup? Some daily virtual server backup by your hosting provider?

Are there lots of changes to your files or are those 3 million files mostly read only?

comment Rotate whole /var/log
Back to the drawing board, @EliasEx. You seem to be reinventing the wheel without a good reason -- or at least you did not tell us why you want to do something like this. All kinds of log rotation scripts shipped with Linux/whatever distros are already fine-tuned with much love, joy, hate and tears. Reinventing all that does not sound like wise. So. Why?

Is there a good reason for using rsh (and not ssh)?

comment SCP Stalled : Server to Oracle VM
By copying files from one server to another back and forth. And if you meant the firewall, then ask from the network administrators you might have. :)

comment SCP Stalled : Server to Oracle VM
If you have any other servers in your network, is scp fast from some other server to Oracle? Or is scp fast between $some_other_server_1 <--> $some_other_server_2? Perhaps some firewall is throttling the connection.

comment is there something similar like sa-learn-cyrus for dovecot?
Just to be complete: if you want to use sa-learn together with mbox format files, there's the salearn --mbox parameter.

comment Zabbix server 2.2.1 again crash
OK, truly shouldn't crash unless you have some very exotic Zabbix 3rd party plugins installed. Is the server otherwise stable? A some kind of hardware fault is what I suspect.

comment Zabbix server 2.2.1 again crash
What Linux distro you use? Did you install Zabbix from the OS repositories or did you compile it yourself?

comment Sporadic NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED from BackupPC via Samba
BackupPC is quite sensitive when it comes to its backup methods. Sure you could stop backing up or continue it regardless of the exit status, but on the other hand, if your task is to backup everything, then please do that. You know the users; they suddenly tell you they deleted <something unexpected> and if you was not able to back that up in the first place, you're screwed. Please find out why you was not able to backup those users in the first place, correct that, and let the life go on.

comment OpenLDAP server network architecture and hardware requierments
If you have a large LDIF file you can try to import to your ESX environment, try to do that. In my case under ESX slapd imported the file total of 8 hours, whereas under physical server it took 15 minutes. I tried to debug this for a couple of weeks and finally gave up. Anyway, I also shortly tried that thing in production and very quicky found out that it was not good. The setup was a multi-master slapd with lots of reads and semi-active write activity, too.

comment OpenLDAP server network architecture and hardware requierments
A word of warning: unless things have recently changed, OpenLDAP + VMware ESX = a bad combination. slapd heavily relies on accurate and fast system clock and gettimeofday() with VMware is not performant or reliable as with real hardware. This mostly hurts in very busy environments, but you have been warned (or Matias :-)).

How did you do this? Compiling Apache from the source? What distro you use? Please be more specific.

comment centos TCP/IP connection very slow
What if you try that from the localhost? Still slow? If it's fast from the localhost, talk to your server provider.
