comment mariadb privileges behaving differently than mysql
@BarryTuber There's a lot more detail that you can provide that's relevant. Can you clarify whether it's wordpress, or scripts, that are failing? What's the exact error message - a connection failure or a permissions failure? What do the grants for the user look like (show grants for username)? Can you login with the account's user and get to the database with the command line client?

comment Keepalived configuration for VRRP
@AbhishekChanda My guess is the rather conservative default is for compatibility reasons. In a case where you're failing back and forth rapidly (usually due to communication problems between the VRRP nodes) you don't want both nodes spewing GARP constantly - I've seen network devices start completely ignoring ARP from an offending IP address in those kinds of cases.

comment Apache causing huge load, how to pin down the reason?
@Greg You'll need to be logging it - either by having separate log files per virtual host, or by putting the hostname in the log format. Check what your current logs look like.

comment Cisco PIX 501 and jumbo frames
@RaymondHolguin Yes, it's accurate - jumbo frames aren't really "on" unless the systems in the network are sending them, regardless of what the switches are configured to handle.

comment Nginx proxy to Go dramatically reduces performance
Ok, then the bottleneck's almost certainly in the proxying - can you try having Go listen for HTTP on a unix socket and point nginx at that so it's not going through the work of dealing with TCP?

comment Nginx proxy to Go dramatically reduces performance
Hmm. How about if you use an upstream with something like keepalive 64;? Also, as a test, see how many reqs/second your nginx serves when just requesting a tiny file that doesn't get proxied to Go?

If you turn the concurrency down to, say, 10, are the results much closer together?
