Readers should note that Bruce is (a? the?) maintainer of the linux NFS server, so presumably he knows what he is talking about. :)

comment Does 'ulimit -m' not work on (modern) Linux?
Here's an interesting article which goes into some detail about the various limits and what they mean. It's ten years old but presumably most of this stuff doesn't change. answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/311442.html

comment How to force 'yum search' to use local metadata/cache?
It's not entirely true that yum caches are disabled by default. the package cache is disabled, but the metadata is cached by default. yum -C as you mention uses that locally cached metadata.

comment dhcpd: any way to check dhcp pool status?
On X random linux distro, the location of the lease file is probably defined in the dhcpd.conf file. It might possibly use the compiled-in default though. The config file usually lives under /etc (although perhaps in a subdirectory; red hat puts it in /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf).
