comment Heavy linux server load when many files in directory
There is insufficient information here. I don't know why you think breaking things up into sub folders should make a difference, but if it is easy for you to test go ahead. Is your problem I/O? You need to find the root source of your problem. What specific task or thing is causing the load? How long does it take to generate 1 image? How long does it take to generate 8 images in parallel? Once you figure out how long it takes for a small set of images, math it out and figure out how long it should take for a typical days worth of images.

If you are going to use 127.0.0.1 then you really should ONLY use 127.0.0.1 and setup forwarders in your DNS server.

comment Debian 6 - Wrong Python 2.6 Installed (have 2.6.6-8+b1, need 2.6.6-8+deb6u3)
Do you have any apt pining configured? What have you configured for apt sources? Are you really using Squeeze? It really is past time to upgrade to a new release.

comment How is the maildir for each user supposed to be created?
Why are your Maildir folders under /var/mail? AFAIK most people put them under /home/? I mean it's not feasible to manually create a new directory for each user. Not that it should be required, but why isn't it feasible? Write a script with a LDAP query that finds new created accounts, then make the directory.

comment iptables mark is not persisting after MASQUERADING
I am confused, why would you think that it would show up there. If a packet has gotten to your MASQ rule, then it is already in the POSTROUTING phase. POSTROUTING is one of the last chance that get processed before a packet is given to the interface for transmission. Why do you think it would then be visible in the PREROUTING chain again?

comment Does rsyslogd send new information or the entire log file upon restart
Is your $InputFileStateFile getting updated properly? I have never used this functionality before. But my reading of the docs rsyslog.com/doc/v8-stable/configuration/modules/imfile.html seems to suggest that it will read it all once, then save the state, and then always continue from the last processed point. But if your state file isn't being saved/created properly, then it would probably be resending everything at each restart.

comment Using get-wsuscomputer with -ComputerUpdateStatus
@kekimian Like I said above there doesn't appear to be any property in the returned object as seen by get-wsuscomputer | Get-Member that I would be able to use in a where-object.
