Reddit: sshd spawning tons of children

Sunday 4th of January 2015 09:21:00 PM

I'm trying to help a friend out, but currently, it seems something has caused 500+ sshd child processes to spawn, and were a bit flabbergasted how and what is causing it. The system is CentOS 6.5/latest and sshd is the latest as far as I know, we don't think its compromised, as its actually sshd processes, and we've also inputted stricter ssh ratelimiting into iptables.

Hi all, I am an up and coming Linux/AIX/HP-UX server admin. I have the basic knowledge I need to handle day to day activities, but I want more knowledge. I also have an hour drive each day in which I have been listening to music, but I want to make the most of this time and listen to audiobooks that may help build my professional career. Any ideas?

How do I copy specific files, in Linux and from a very old dying PATA/IDE HDD, to another drive without messing it up like dd(rescue) commands? I only need to force copy specific files and not the whole drive!

Thank you in advance. :)

Reddit: Why don't the people who hate systemd use BSD instead?

Sunday 4th of January 2015 06:01:32 PM

It's a serious question. Linux is Unix-Like and BSD is (apparently) straight Unix. BSD doesn't have systemd or PulseAudio, the two major things people complain about with Linux. If both systemd and PulseAudio are such a problem, why not just switch to BSD?

Android Leftovers

  • OnePlus Will Reveal Details Of Its ‘Oxygen’ Android ROM On February 12
    OnePlus introduced its own version of Android for its One smartphone earlier this month in response to its standoff with Cyanogen, and now the company has revealed that it will unveil its own ROM which can be installed on third-party Android devices on February 12. Correction: OnePlus tells us that, in fact, it won’t launch the ROM on the 12th. This is a tease-of-a-tease, and instead we can expect to see “more information about the ROM” not an actual download for third-party Android devices.
