comment How to copy a public key to your server
Maybe a piece to the puzzle: You usually have your public key served to your VM via metadata service, and grabbed and put into place by something like cloudinit.

comment Docker: How to get image size?
Not a general answer, but looking at the way the stackbrew ubuntu images are built, you can guess a lower bound to the image size from the used tarballs. (For predictable bandwidth usage, you might just build the images yourself -- you'd then know how much is downloaded, i.e. just the tarball itself.)

comment AiX topas snapshot to web
Note the apache in your PHP script output. The script is not run as root -- which is good, but may affect the way topas works. Try sudo -u apache bash myscript.sh for comparison (if sudo is available to you).

comment Monitor via SSH and execute local script upon change detection
This sounds very complicated. Which problem are you trying to solve? For a Linux dev environment with a shared folder, many people like to use Vagrant, for example.
