comment Use ssh without trying ssh-keys
So this is a duplicate question, please delete this one (since you are asking us to answer in the other question), though I think this is a more fitting site to post this in.

comment Use ssh without trying ssh-keys
I usually use a config file that specifies which key belongs to which server and this negates the need for looping through the keys.

comment How to calculate per CPU load
The load is not usually kept per CPU, since the run queue is a single entity (or at least was when I browsed through the relevant code).

comment Authentication very slow (both with ssh and su)
The call trace looks like you have a memory issue. This can make the entire system slow, especially when referred to logins, that as the process(es) is not constantly alive.

comment Grepping for a block of text with parts that can be optional
You could, but you should save only the part within the single quotes in that file.

To use this script just replace the inputfile.txt with your file name, or better, remove the cat and pipe, and put your file name after the closing single quote.

comment How to set a callback to NFS to allow scripting?
If you don't have any dependencies on the NFS (or you have ones that you're OK if they fail) I would just put that in the rc.local file.

You should increment the event counter separately from the event header (or have the operator before), this causes the header and footer to show different numbers and is less readable.

Find what about them? Count their amount? Print them all? Please edit your question and add sample expected output (with different sample inputs preferably).

comment Language variable missing after the update
You are referring to the LANG variable? Perhaps it was defined in /etc/profile and it is not anymore, and maybe the root user has it's own profile or rc file.

I think this is a job for awk, using a "state machine" variable(s), but you should add some more information in order to get help with this, like exact tokens searched for and what you expect the end result to be.

comment Linux on a 286?
In an edited out part of my answer I did indicate that emulation is implemented in the Linux kernel. It was even used to port Linux to S/390 (a.k.a IBM Mainframe) as it did not have a floating point unit at the time it was ported.

comment Lenovo T440s Fingerprint reader in Fedora 20
I don't have a fingerprint reader anymore, but I would check the pam.d settings that the fingerprint reader is enabled.

comment Regular Expressions within a string in AWK using if/then control structure?
Adding to @1_CR 's comment - tilde (~) does a pattern matching against a variable - in this case $6. You can do pattern matching against the entire line without it.
