Re: Monitor NICs

It sounds like you'd be best served by looking at cacti, mrtg or rrdtool, and nagios. Nagios is probably overkill as it's more of a notification/monitoring system to alert you of problems, but it ties in nicely with rrdtool to provide reporting on pretty much any timescale you specifiy. mrtg and rrd...

Apache low performance problem. Need help quickly!

You may want to go back through your configs and check to make sure things that are performance killers are turned off. Things like HostnameLookups etc should be off and left for log analizers to do at a later time. hostname lookup will cause slowness because of DNS taking its time, or ipv6 calls ti...

phpmyadmin security hole

First, the php with mbstring issue means that you need to do the following "yum install php-mbstring' Second, the php-myadmin error about the password seems to imply that the password for the mysql root user is blank. If this is the case, correct it. If it's not the case, most likely you have root l...

Re: Perl Doesn't Execute (newbie)

FYI, when you install mod_perl, the config file you want is in /etc/httpd/conf.d/perl.conf

Most of that file is commented out, but you should see how to correctly load things up the way you want. In fact, most of your configuring should just be uncommenting a couple lines.

Devices installed under Centos 4.1

There's nothing quite as detailed in one location as Device Manager (in gui form) but there is a "Hardware Browser" which should be in the menu, or from commandline with hwbrowser. You can also run lspci to see what's on the pci bus and lsmod to see what kernel modules are loaded. You can also find ...

kernel unsupported

Centos strives to be a completely compatible rebuild of the upstream vendor. Because they don't include this stuff by default, we don't either. That's probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but your best bet is to install & immediately update to the centosplus kernel if you need that functional...

yum random errors.

Just do 'yum clean all' and possibly manually clean out any junk in /var/cache/yum/
once that's done, do 'yum update'. no need for the makecache. Also, have you installed anything from a 3rd party repository prior to this problem, or have you built anything and installed by source?

TOP not showing multiple CPUs

top has changed to be more friendly or some such junk. When you're running top, to see multiple CPUs, press number 1 on the keyboard, and you'll see the cpu section expand to show all cpus.
