comment Why is Enterprise Storage so expensive?
@Bart They base that on a very small sampling (by their own admission, 17 failures in 368 drive-years). This study points toward the difference in undetected read errors (that is, read errors where on-platter FEC failed to either correct or detect the error, and which in an ideal case should have triggered an unrecoverable read error result) actually being rather close to the quoted UBE rate difference between similar-models consumer/desktop and higher-end drives (one order of magnitude in favor of higher-end drives).

comment How to check the OS is running on bare metal and not in virtualized environment created by BIOS?
Exactly. "Could" be. Is not necessarily. (And don't you think that software like that would be written specifically to avoid publicly available detection techniques?)

comment How to check the OS is running on bare metal and not in virtualized environment created by BIOS?
First off, questions seeking product recommendations are off-topic. Second, there are tons of ways something can be affecting an OS, without resorting to virtualization, so even if the threat is real (which we don't know) focusing on only a tiny aspect ("detect virtualization") makes little to no sense. Third, there need not be anything affecting the OS at all for the system as a whole to be compromised.

comment Memory Ram too high in HTTPD processes
We all start out somewhere! Keep in mind the scope of each site (see the respective help center, particularly What topics can I ask about here? and What types of questions should I avoid asking?) and that the Q&A format works best when a single, authoritative answer is possible, and you'll likely do fine. If you are unsure, ask on the respective site's Meta site first (for example Meta Server Fault) whether a question on a given topic would be on topic on the site or not (but don't ask the actual question there).

comment Memory Ram too high in HTTPD processes
Hi Cookboy. You are asking quite a bit in this question, particularly in the paragraph that begins with "But this is not normal right?", and I imagine that is why it was downvoted. Consider editing your question to focus it on a single issue that can ideally be answered authoritatively within a few paragraphs. Also consider that the scope of this site is basically system administration in a professional context; if you are currently running a professional system where 100 MB of RAM matters that much, you should at least elaborate on why that is so, because to most that's margin of error.

@kasperd Good point. I amended the answer; how do you feel about it now?

comment Does a company have implied right to crawl my website?
I'm not sure I'd call a Disallow directive in a robots.txt file a "forbidding technological measure". robots.txt acts as a courtesy request, and while well-behaved bots will abide by it, there's no obligation and no real security involved. In fact, badly behaved bots might well take an entry in robots.txt as an invitation to crawl that specific path...

comment Email + data server for a small company needed?
Did you ask them why they are suggesting splitting the workload across two servers? What was their answer? Remember, you (the company) is their customer -- you can certainly say "no, we don't want to run two machines for this".

Also, the title and the question do not match.

comment How to delete older files in a folder in unix?
Next time, please specify which Unix you're talking about. (Or as in this case, which find.) AIX is not FreeBSD is not OS X, for example.

comment Why would zfs performance be bad for moving files within an fs?
Are you sure Beets actually moves the data, and does not copy and delete it to try to prevent problems from becoming critical? What is the layout of your pool? Does zpool status indicate any problems? Is this really within the same file system (same pool doesn't count)?

comment What is the server.ca file?
You say you "have" the two, now you say you "removed" one. While it appears you have received an answer that might help, it's often easier to provide a good answer to a question that states the end goal. (For example: "I accidentally deleted /etc/httpd/conf/server.ca, which I believe has something to do with Directadmin. I don't have backups. What can I do to regenerate this file?")

What makes you ask? Do you, for example, want to regenerate it?
