comment How do I find how long ago a Linux system was installed?
@derobert, I still think my answer would be correct, given the OPs question. A new disk isn't any different from new RAM -- you still have the same 'installation' even though you popped a new disk in...

True, it does. There's just no sanity checking, error reporting, etc...

Atop rocks. I've used it to successfully solve a similar problem.

comment Small Distributed Computing Cluster
As others have written, 'cluster' frequently implies parallel execution, which requires special codes or programming. A different, but cool use of multiple computers working together is live fail-over of mirrored filesystems. Take a minute and look into DRBD and clustered filesystems. This might give you ideas too: xenamo.sourceforge.net

comment Orphaned connections in CLOSE_WAIT state
When doing the netstats, I had full privs, yes. I'll go check out the kernel processes angle -- that's a good idea. I'm really stumped, because there aren't supposed to be any listening sockets at all, except for two or three well-known privileged ports. Maybe it's a wierd iptables problem. I'll check that out too.

I wrote that there were no PIDs, but didn't show my work. I made a quick edit per your suggestion, thanks.

comment Orphaned connections in CLOSE_WAIT state
Oh, and my research shows that others are seeing artifacts like this in 'lsof -i'. I'm not seeing anything odd there.
