LXer: How to Manage Processes in Linux

Friday 24th of March 2017 03:11:34 AM
A process is the abstraction used by the Linux operating system to represent a running program. Each process in Linux consists of an address space and a set of data structures within the server kernel. The address space contains the code and libraries that the process is executing, the process’s variables, its stacks, and different additional information needed by the kernel while the process is running.

Reddit: What exactly is the flow of DHCP w/DDNS Updates using bind9 and isc-dhcp-server?

Friday 24th of March 2017 01:59:56 AM

I decided to setup a DHCP & DNS server on my Ubuntu Server 14.04 at home. Primarily just for educational purposes, but it is useful, albeit a bit overkill, for my home network.

After spending 2 nights working through some stupid permissions issues related to our buddy apparmor, I finally got to where there are no errors and everything looks as it should:

Mar 23 21:24:38 ubuntu-gateway dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 44:85:00:4d:49:37 via eth0 Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.10.119 to 44:85:00:4d:49:37 (MMMM- LENOVO) via eth0 Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway named[4183]: client 192.168.10.22#56110/key rndc-key: signer "rndc-key" approved Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway named[4183]: client 192.168.10.22#56110/key rndc-key: updating zone 'linux.xxxx/IN': adding an RR at 'MMMM-LENOVO.linux.mxxxx' A Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway named[4183]: client 192.168.10.22#56110/key rndc-key: updating zone 'linux.xxxx/IN': adding an RR at 'MMMM-LENOVO.linux.xxxx' TXT Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.10.119 (192.168.10.22) from 44:85:00:4d:49:37 (MMMM-LENOVO) via eth0 Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway dhcpd: DHCPACK on 192.168.10.119 to 44:85:00:4d:49:37 (MMMM-LENOVO) via eth0 Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway dhcpd: Added new forward map from MMMM-LENOVO.linux.mxxxx to 192.168.10.119 Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway named[4183]: client 192.168.10.22#56110/key rndc-key: signer "rndc-key" approved Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway named[4183]: client 192.168.10.22#56110/key rndc-key: updating zone '10.168.192.in-addr.arpa/IN': deleting rrset at '119.10.168.192.10.168.192.in-addr.arpa' PTR Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway named[4183]: client 192.168.10.22#56110/key rndc-key: updating zone '10.168.192.in-addr.arpa/IN': adding an RR at '119.10.168.192.10.168.192.in-addr.arpa' PTR Mar 23 21:24:39 ubuntu-gateway dhcpd: Added reverse map from 119.10.168.192.10.168.192.in-addr.arpa. to MMMM-LENOVO.linux.mxxxx

However, when checking the actual zone files, I don't see the records, though dns operations do seem to work. I see that it creates the .jnl files and I assume that is where the DNS is getting its info from?

After researching, I see that I can basically write the jnl info into the zone files by the freeze, reload, thaw method on rndc.

That being said, how should this whole process work?

Is the jnl file where I should keep my entries?

What is the difference in leaving them here and writing them to the zone file?

If a lease expires and no longer needs to be in DNS, will the freeze, reload, thaw process clear it out of the DNS zone file?

Does this DDNS update no happen automatically? Thus, if not, do I need to set up a chron for the freeze, reload, thaw every so often? If so, recommendations on how often?

Thanks!

TuxMachines: OpenSuse Leap Reinforces Linux Faith

Friday 24th of March 2017 01:15:02 AM

Leap is a solid performer. I had no trouble installing it on MBR and EFI systems. Secure Boot tends to be buggy with some configurations, but it was incident-free with this installation.

The bootloader handles multiboot with other Linux distributions or Windows fairly trouble-free. Installation is routine, thanks to the graphical format used.

Only 64-bit versions are available for x86 computers, which limits access to legacy hardware in the 32-bit machines. ARM ports are available if you can track them down through the project's wiki.

TuxMachines: Leftovers: OSS

  • Are Low-Code Platforms a Good Fit for Feds?

    Open-source code platforms — in part, because they’re often free — have long been a popular choice for digital service creation and maintenance.

    In recent years, however, some agencies have turned to low-code solutions for intuitive visual features such as drag-and-drop design functionality. As Forrester Research notes, low-code platforms are "application platforms that accelerate app delivery by dramatically reducing the amount of hand-coding required."

SAS, Canonical turn silly over open source

Zemlin's job, in other words, isn't to convince companies to adopt open source, but rather to provide a home for the nurturing of open source projects, so they're worthy of adoption. Similarly, Canonical can focus on contributing code rather than spooking enterprises into adopting more. And SAS? Well, it should probably start with 40 percent open source adoption and grow from there. Read more
