Learn About Me!

I solve problems with Linux and Windows servers, wired and wireless networks, storage of all types, and insert_buzzword(); These days I find myself solving problems using MongoDB, ElasticSearch, and other data stores.

Even though we tend to use the same goofy kitten face as an avatar, we are not the same person and have no affiliation. Other than good taste in avatars, anyway.

comment forget my old password. how can i recover that
@Zoredache It's also possible for AD passwords to be stored encrypted rather than hashed (GPO option), and if there are old cached credentials on a machine somewhere, you could conceivably find them and crack them. Maybe. If the stars align.

comment mongo shard has high number of faults, but top shows only 8% of memory used by mongod
@AdamC Okay, I've been in a similar situation with a MongoDB instance and it was the Linux host not freeing up cached memory. Something like free && sync && echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches && free fixed it up. Here's more about what that does: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/87908/…

comment HP NC364T on CentOS 7
This question is being voted for closure because it prominently involves software or hardware that is not what is generally considered “professional grade” and may itself be causing the problem, or actively hindering a repeatable and consistent solution.

@Stony You won't need to wait because you're not changing records, you're adding records. What's your domain name?

It would help us to know your domain name, but I understand if you can't share it.
