I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong. Currently, I am the Fedora Project Leader.

comment Get files from SFTP server and manipulate in memory
@PackedUp What CentOS version? Just checked RHEL7 and Scientific Linux 6.5 (what I happened to have at hand) and both support it.

@PackedUp What version and from what distribution? Or, build yourself, and make sure to link against libssh2.

comment Memory consumption Fail2Ban CentOS
I might investigate why your fail2ban is taking up so much memory, and possibly adjust the configuration. On my system, it's more like 9M!
