Re: Huge number of "type=SECCOMP" audit log entries

aks - by 'worried' do you mean worried about malicious activity going on?

The system calls referenced in the log file are

sys call 2 = sys_fork
sys call 87 = sys_swapon

The process ID's appear to be Firefox processes - is Firefox maybe going a little berserk with the system calls?

Huge number of "type=SECCOMP" audit log entries

I've got a user reporting his gnome-shell process starts maxing out his CPU usage, and his workstation appears to freeze. He has rebooted twice to get his machine back, or else goes to a different workstation, SSH into his workstation and kill the processes consuming all the CPU. When I look in /var...

samba service fails to start after update

I applied updates last Friday to an NFS file server - the system got updated from CentOS 7.3 to 7.7. A user complained today that his mapped file share from his Windows workstation wouldn't mount his samba share on the NFS server. I checked the file server and the smb service isn't starting. journal...

Re: nfs mounting is flakey

It took awhile to get a full 'yum update' scheduled, but that seemed to do the trick. The NFS mounts are pretty fast and reliable now.
Thanks

nfs mounting is flakey

I'm having some issues getting some remote mounts to work correctly. Both server and client are CentOS 7 (the server is a little older - 7.3 ; the clients are mostly 7.7) /etc/fstab has the remote mounts configured that it's trying to access. If you run mount -a to manually mount the remote share in...

Re: How to disable "you have updates" pop up window?

You wouldn't think it would work if they didn't have admin privileges, but it's happened twice to me now, and neither of them had sudo access.

How to disable "you have updates" pop up window?

How do you disable the pop up window in CentOS 7 that notifies users of available updates?

I don't want any users to see that pop up - I should be the only authorized person doing updates on any of these workstations.

Re: Very slow logins specific to one user account

If anyone is interested and following this thread, the resolution turned out to be changing the default shell from /bin/tcsh to /bin/bash. Login times changed from 30-40 seconds down to 1-2 seconds. I'm still a little exasperated because I don't know *why* changing the shell would have such an effec...

Very slow logins specific to one user account

I'm having an issue with a user account that is getting very slow login/logout times over both console logins and ssh logins - between 30-45 seconds to login and/or logout. Other user accounts on the same machines don't have the same problem - maybe 1-3 second logins. The ssh logins have been tried ...
