That makes little sense, as one of them is ionice idle, whereas the other isn't!

comment Determining if a bot is scraping utility bill content and how to block it
Why do you mind if they scrape this data? How is it going to harm the local government, or your citizens? I agree that it is worrying that the company might be stealing personal information your users. However, that doesn't seem to be what is concerning you - you seem to be concerned that somebody might be gathering gup data about water and garbage collection usage. The main reasons I can think somebody would do that are good. They're probably running a business that ultimately reduce water use or help recycle garbage. What's the bad use case you're worried about?

comment Puppet can't access MySQL meta-information even when root
Here is my answer - ServerFault won't let me self answer as I'm a new user. Are you using the puppet-mysql plugin/ github.com/camptocamp/puppet-mysql If so, firstly, check you have a file /root/.my.cnf with the root mysql user password in it. This should have been made by the plugin. The problem is the plugin isn't finding that file when doing basic things like listing existing databases. Running the command like this will work, to help it find it: $ HOME=/root sudo puppetd --verbose --no-daemonize -o I'm not sure how you are meant to do it.
