comment Limit Hard Drive Write Speed by User in Linux
Write speed should not blank out your SSH connection. its likely caused by a saturated network interface or similar. try limiting the protocol they use to upload. QoS can also help (but is more complicated to setup)

Zabbix, cacti, munin. Too lazy to write up an actual answer... one too many Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster's last night.

comment Tool to test analog phone line connection quality
You could always throw the modem line through a sound-card and look at the signal in audacity (using isolation)

Fluke (Laughed when i was first told about them, funny name) will get the job done and are guaranteed to get an accurate result. Expensive though...

comment CentOS How Much SWAP for 16GB of RAM?
side note, its generally preferable to set swap to a partition and not a file to avoid overheads and simplify the boot process. however using a file will work. 4GB is all any system should need, i doubt you will get much swapped anyway with 16gb of RAM

comment Nagios Plugins Configure Flags
+1 when you compile something that depends on another library you often need the source for that library too. if all fails you should be able to download the source of postgresql and set a /.configure flag to set the directory it looks in for the source files.

comment Unreasonably slow stunnel
Whats the system load? How can you be sure that its stunnels fault? Its also possible that Facebook is slow, some areas are pretty bad for Facebook, what with a good 600,000,000 users.

comment Will everyone having Globally Accessible IP's in IPv6 be kind of a security nightmare?
@ranieri Not at all, im only saying that you cant solely throw a computer behind a NAT firewall and expect the entire network to be secure. Its also a waste to let traffic you know you want blocked to take up bandwidth on a network as well. In the absence of L3 switches anyone within the network could target a computer and host-based security is required, however both are recommended. You could replace network security with host-based security but as you said, it wouldn't be ideal.
