comment BIND/DNSMASQ query hanging on ubuntu server 14.04.1
i do geo-targeting -- some hosts go through europe, some through usa, some through australia. etc. etc. etc. If you're happy all your proxying going through that one server (wherever its located) then no, you don't need more than one.

comment BIND/DNSMASQ query hanging on ubuntu server 14.04.1
My problem may have been different. I had dns server with dnsmasq on server A and sniproxy on server B for a smart dns routing setup. I had set the server B dns server to use server A and this created an infinite loop. So queries took very long time when there were a lot. I changed Server B to just use Google DNS and now proxying DNS requests from server A worked fine.

i've been using this command for years, but on Mac now i get errors saying those directories do not exist. Even though it does delete them. I never saw messages before.

comment Delete files that exist in the source with rsync
after looking at unison, I figure it was just a blanket answer without really reading the problem I am faced with.

comment Delete files that exist in the source with rsync
this only works on files. not directories, and I believe it deletes the files from A, not B.

comment combine output from two commands in bash
The node command doesn't output much, but it still needs to run. The python one outputs all requests, I want to capture both and watch them both in the same shell window.

comment Using rsync to sync two directories on server and localhost, but size is different
what do you mean by a "sparse" file? I'm not using symlinks or hardlinks, and I don't what what "block sizes" are.

Thanks, but the above answer seems to be what the issue is -- different block sizes (not really sure what this means). Files are the same.
