@MichaelHampton Every once in awhile a package like psmisc would receive some back-ported changes. This probably isn't worthy?

comment Why are --older-than and --younger-than killall options missing in RHEL/CentOS?
I didn't have a Fedora system handy to check. EL6 was based on Fedora 12/13-ish, right? But you're certain that EL7 has this in place now?

comment Why are --older-than and --younger-than killall options missing in RHEL/CentOS?
Actually, this is a practical question because I'm helping a customer port their application and related scripts from Ubuntu to CentOS in my hosting environment. It's also a distribution-related quirk; to the point where people asking the same question can receive vastly different solutions, depending on OS implementation.

comment enable SMART for HP hard disk
@HBruijn This is correct. I often say that S.M.A.R.T. is not the final word in storage monitoring. In the HP Smart Array case, the controllers use SMART amongst a number of other methods to determine drive and array health.

@Gilles Edited: But the script generally detects KVM, Xen, QEMU, VirtualBox, Parallels, OpenVZ, IBM System Z, LPAR, z/VM, Hitachi Virtage, VMWare, Microsoft Hyper-V. Hmm... should LXC be included?

Trailing slashes in your rsync command may be a good idea here.

comment can I get the shell to decide ls or less depending on filetype?
@ceejayoz I'm not sure I can. These are discrete commands. It's like trying to describe the color "blue".
