I am currently a software developer in Seattle, WA. I recently moved here from New York City, and am still trying to find my way about town!

I enjoy learning new things, and ServerFault allows me to do that. Not only do I post answers and learn from comments, other answers, etc., but many of the answers force me to do my own investigation, instead of just relying on what I've experienced. Its a great way to learn!

comment Webpage still getting re-directed to HTTPS after commenting out redirect parameters in the httpd.conf file
Try increasing the LogLevel--the Redirect option is handled by mod_alias. Try increasing it to Debug level and make the call. You may want to increase it to trace1 (or higher) to figure it out.

Have you tried using telnet from a remote host to see if port 80 is open?

comment mod_rewrite mysteriously appends subfolder to rewritten url
Apache is extremely widely used, and recommending the requester switch to an entirely new application is counter-productive.

comment How to retrieve the last modification date of all files in a git repository
Since "HEAD" is just a reference, you can use any reference you want, be it a tag, branch, commit hash, etc..

@mbulman Any more suggestions? It looks like the "data" partition is being set to "_" (underscore). However, I confirmed in cassandra.yaml that it's set to a valid value.

The device is an EC2 virtualized drive, though, which is a block storage device. I would assume this simply used df (or similar) and interpreted the results... after all, it uses iostat for the IO metrics.

Thanks, @mbulman, I went ahead and added the call to /nodes to the API, since this seemed to show the relevant information (i.e., the devices and partitions).

Adding example of API call.
