General :: Script To Tar Up Files When A Partition Hits A Certain Use Percentage

Apr 19, 2011

I am in need to create a script that queries how large a partition is and when it hits a certain percentage (say 90%) it will execute another script that tars up certain files (or they could just be part of the same script). I would create a cronjob that runs this script once a day.

I have the script that tars up the files I need, sets permissions, etc. (btw, the files in question are audit logs). I just need the part that runs something like a df -h and takes the use percentage of the /var partition in that query and if that percentage is greater than/ equal to 90%, it kicks off the tar script.

Here is a sniplet of the df -h with just the /var partition shown:


So, when the cronjob sees that the Use% is >= 90%, it would kick off the tar script...if not above 90%, it closes.

General :: Debian Based - Arch Based - What Is The Practical Difference?

Jun 7, 2010

I notice that on DistroWatch, the descriptions include "debian based", "arch based", etc. For the newbie, is there any practical difference between the different bases, or is it a Coke vs Pepsi type question?

Is a distro based on Debian say, easier for a newbie to learn or work with than say one that is FreeBSD based?

Ubuntu Networking :: Low Wireless Connection Percentage?

Feb 3, 2010

My old PC has new life thanks to Ubuntu 9.1. However, a few small problems still remain:

1. D-Link wireless adapter: My wireless connection percentage never seems to get higher than 70%, even though the wireless router is right outside the door. And to top it off, I can see other neighbor's networks and the signal strength is higher! I am running ndiswrapper if that helps, and the connection is WPA/WPA2, speed of 130 Mb/s which is great, but can I improve the signal?

2. If I leave the computer on and come back after a while, the monitor is black, and I can see that the wireless connection is still going, but I can't seem to "wake up" the computer. I have messed with the settings, but have not attempted anything in the terminal. Can someone provide a simple fix? I would like to Suspend or Hibernate, but they don't work (meaning, I can wake up the computer). So I have resorted to simply logging off each time, which works.

3. Watching streaming video using RealPlayer, many times the screen freezes, and I am unable to navigate to anywhere else on the computer. Meaning, the mouse moves, but cannot open, close, change, do anything on the computer. Ctrl-Alt-Dlt doesn't even work to pop up anything. Is there a less abrupt way to Force Quit than holding down the power button on my computer and restarting the whole thing? I am sure that is not too good for the computer.

Server :: CPU Load Average Higher Than Percentage?

I don't know what is going on with one of my servers.

It is sitting with a load average of 10.09 10.08 10.02

However If I look at top I see the server between 95% and 99% idle!

Is it possible that my server is running some hidden processes or something?

How I can investigate the cause of this.

Programming :: Progress Bar Instead Of Percentage Complete For Loop

Nov 25, 2010

I've got a loop which is able to echo out how complete a process is after each loop (e.g says 25% if the loop has 4 elements and has run once through). Is there any way I can print characters, perhaps a progress bar? I was thinking of using the percentage as a count or something and using.

I got told off for including code from work here.

Ubuntu :: Bug In Today's Update?

I was wondering if this is a bug or if it's something with my computer. Also, I didn't look that close at the update, but I thought it looked a lot like the previous update (had chrome in it again).

Ubuntu :: Kill Window Based On Based On Title Instead Of PID?

Apr 24, 2010

I am working on a set up, and I like to be able to toggle compiz on and off, or toggle dualscreen on and off. The thing is, I also have conky on my desktop as well as a terminal window embedded in my desktop (that requires compiz). So, when I turn comiz off, or resize my desktop, I want to be able to reposition conky/embedded-terminal and the terminals position is relative to my conky position and the size of my virtual desktop.

I can do this all fine, except that to reposition the terminal I need to kill it then reopen it. But if I kill gnome-terminal it kills ALL gnome-terminals instead of just my embedded one. How can I specifically close my embedded one and leave any others untouched? Lets say that the title of my embedded terminal is "trans777"Also, the trans777 titled gnome-terminal will be killed when compiz is not running.

Ubuntu :: Dynamic Percentage In Window Titles Makes Sidebar Flick?

Nov 3, 2010

Is there a known bug in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS about this? When for example Brasero Disc burner is in action, it displays the progress as percentages in the title bar. This makes my sidebar that shows all open programs flick every time the percentage is progressing, and even worse; it switches between one and two column display on each flick... I am using the sidebar on the right side, and have seen some extra problem reports about that, but would appreciate any pointers to where this is being discussed and / or fixed.
