comment sshfs will not use ~/.ssh/config (on Linux Mint 15)
Hi MBS, you can run ssh with the -v switch to show any errors which may be present. it may be worth doing this to see if there is an error while reading the file. Also, your keys on target server should have 600 permissions.

comment Limit disk buffer usage in SLES 11SP2 to allow more efficient memory overcommit on esxi host
Actual problem VM size is 32GB. I completely agree that he should reduce the RAM allocation of this WM. I think the total over commit on the host is actually about 20% which is fine. I heard there was a way of limiting this disk cache size in windows, so assumed there would be in linux also. I think real solution would be to reduce RAM allocation on VM, but apparently it may be needed by program data (not disk cache)

comment A lot of errors on ext4, however smart doesn't show any errors
Thank you for sharing the solution. It certainly highlights the limitations of SMART, and why checking at a different level is required!

I never even thought of sed, I think that may be a suitable answer for the related question here but I am actually looking for information on the inconsistent behaviour of these commands!

comment How do I use tee to redirect to grep
Excellent Answer! I actually asked because I am interested in the underlying processes. When things are inconstant I find it interesting. Would there be a better way to run ps aux | tee >(grep syslog) | head -n1 which would stop head closing stdout. Wow, this command has started to give output now, but as would happen in line with your answer, it seems to be truncated USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND syslog 806

That explains one thing anyway, I am surprised that tee delays grep running to a noticeable extent!
