comment central apache log analysis of many hosts
So we keep the syslog data separate from any Nagios or Ganglia data. Nagios data we keep around whereas Ganglia data just operates in RR mode and only keeps data for a few days. In the end if you really want to analyze the data and have things like automated reports, reports for the lifetime of a machine, it gets a bit harder to accomplish, and personally I feel it would be much easier and generally efficient to just pull different logs with syslog and roll your own monitoring system that can accomplish exactly what you need that is portable enough to be put on every server. It is funny

comment Application “not supported” in a VM?
Are both vCPU's pulling from the same CPU? Do you have it setup that each real core maps directly to a vCPU? Are you doing anything funny like having hyper-threading enabled on your CPU's? These are some questions that should help address anything that maybe causing them some slow down on your end that you can address. You will probably have a better idea after talking to the senior programmer either how to address the issues that maybe cropping up from having it run in a VM or you will know for certain whether they are just doing it wrong. It could just be that the code is written in java.

comment How to give a user account root privileges in Fedora 14?
Reassigning or giving root access rights to a user without any other barrier in place is not only dangerous but is downright negligent. Even if the server was disconnected from the internet and buried six feet underground you still should not do it.
