comment Linux to linux USB storage?
aware of infiniband - but hardware is only cheap off eBay, requires expensive cabling too and I've only ever seen PCI[e] host adapters. Further, this means running the data on top of TCP/IP with all the complications regarding congestion avoidance. Thanks for the link though.

comment Linux to linux USB storage?
cablewholesale.com/support/technical_articles/… says "will allow for two host devices to be connected directly with a USB 3.0 crossover cable" and it seems that these are available.

That was my concern - finding the hardware (since posting I found this: linux-usb.org/gadget/file_storage.html which seems to solve the software problem)

comment CUPS denies access to printer
No, none of the config is changed (and nothing noted in cups logs) when I run lpadmin. The classes file is empty and printers.conf has nothing relating to browsing/access control.

comment How to migrate files on Linux from HDD to SSD on a VDS
Some applications don't like symlinks in certain contexts - e.g. opinting your document_root in apache to a symlink will result in lots of 404 errors if you've configure -FollowSymLinks. Further you may run into concurrency issues if the same file is accessed via different paths. NB I'm not saying this is not the way to fox the problem, just that there are hidden gremlins with symlinks.

comment Is it possbile to mount Windows filesystems without using the root account?
@binghenzq: they don't require the root password at the time of mounting. If you don't have root acces on the machine it's still possible to access an SMB filesystem (using smbclient) but it's not possible to mount any filesystem. If nobody knows the root password then your system is highly vulnerable and this MUST be resolved.

comment Massive, unpredictable I/O performance drop in Linux
Then the next thing on my lsit to check would be to check the logs for errors and check there's plenty of memory allocated to buffers/cache (see output of free)
