Crazy crazy weekend

So last week I managed to migrate the file server cluster and everything worked ok.
It was then time for me to take a break and relax... and luckily friday the 7th I was able to take a day off at work.
I worked hard all friday as a lumberjack and at the evening I was ready for some fun!
Friday night was spent enjoying a warming drink (called jager tee) in a pub and chatting with a friend of mine.
We then planned for Saturday to be more quiet, but could not resist groovy caipiroskas in cozy disco bar until 4am....

So here I am, Monday morning fighting computers as hard as I can! I need some coffeeeeee

The truth is that, as Enteprise applications move to the browser too, Apache access logs are a gold mine, it does not matter what your role is: developer, support or sysadmin. If you are not mining them you are most likely missing out a ton of information and, probably, making the wrong decisions.
ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) is a terrific, Open Source stack for visually analyzing Apache (or nginx) logs (but also any other timestamped data).

From 0 to ZFS replication in 5m with syncoid

The ZFS filesystem has many features that once you try them you can never go back. One of the lesser known is probably the support for replicating a zfs filesystem by sending the changes over the network with zfs send/receive.
Technically the filesystem changes don't even need to be sent over a network: you could as well dump them on a removable disk, then receive  from the same removable disk.

RUNDECK job maintenance

Learn more about Rundeck.

Now that I have a fair number of jobs scheduled by Rundeck, how do I periodically prune the job execution history and keep only the last, say, 30 executions for each job?
