I'm a System architect & Linux admin for cloud.com (Citrix).

I've been working with Linux since right about when kernel 2.2 was released. I've bounced around several unixes, having brief stints with Solaris & FreeBSD, though I much prefer Linux.

I enjoy solving problems, and designing things. Both of which I'm able to exercise quite frequently working with Linux.


Outside of tech, I love flying kites (and partake in some kiteboarding), frisbee, and other outdoorsy activities. I love the warm weather, and thunderstorms, which is why I live in south Florida :-)

comment Call the script after disconnecting from server
@ryekayo that's what you asked for, "when I get disconnected from our servers, It will automatically call the function". If you want to break the loop, you need to specify criteria for doing so.

comment Passing arguments from a file to a bash script
What you are describing is not the default behavior of bash. Are you truly using bash, or some other shell (such as zsh, which will do this)?

revised Call the script after disconnecting from server
remove code formatting. should only be used for things that might be considered as code. 'function' is just a definition, not code itself

comment Lags on file access, is my HDD going to break?
Yes, I understand what you're experiencing, my questions still stand. The system can perform all sorts of actions which you might not expect.

comment Lags on file access, is my HDD going to break?
If the question is "why are these actions slow", are you using anything like nscd, nslcd or sssd? Are you using centralized authentication (ldap, nis, etc)? Do you have any network mounted filesystems?

comment Lags on file access, is my HDD going to break?
This question needs to be fixed. You should be asking either 1) How to detect drive failure, or 2) Why these actions are slow. Assuming that they're slow because of drive failure is potentially false assumption, and thus the question would be unanswerable. There are numerous things that can explain this behavior, hdd failure would be probably the last thing on the list. Foremost I would expect problems with name service lookups (dns, usernames, etc).

comment squashfs reserve some free space
@Dejwi Live CDs do this by using an overlay filesystem with writes backed by a tmpfs volume (i.e. aufs + tmpfs)

comment diabling cpu cores on quad core processor on linux
@user3818847 what distro are you using? Modifying the boot parameters (to pass maxcpus=1) varies by distro. Also the /sys path you have is simply the wrong one, the correct path is /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu3/online.

comment Installing packages in Oracle Linux Server 6.5
Package organization might be completely different between distributions. This question might be better asked if you stated what you need the packages for, and how to determine the packages you need to accomplish that goal (such as "how do I determine the package needed to provide file foo?").

comment Using exec and tee to redirect logs to stdout and a log file in the same time
No, it is the exact same question. The first sentence describes what it's trying to do, and it's exactly what you're trying to do: "redirect all output to one file, debug log as well as to the terminal"

comment Essential tasks of a routing daemon in Linux
@Waqar No, the kernel handles routing. All routing. If a packet originates from the host, the kernel's routing tables determine where the packet should go, just the same as if it were a forwarded packet.

comment Essential tasks of a routing daemon in Linux
Routing is handled by the kernel, not a daemon.
