withgusto Networks - Status Updates and Discussion
« on: November 25, 2012, 11:53:56 am »
Just so that updates are more public, I've decided to post them here!
You can also discuss any problems, ask questions, and make requests here as well.

Fr33 5h311 accounts are still available! It's 100% free!
We simply ask that you be respectful to others on the server and outside of it, and that you occasionally put some change in the tip jar for withgusto. ;)
You should be a member of Omnimaga for at least a month before signing up.

Spoiler For S3rv3r sp3cs:
S3rv3r 1 (main s3rv3r):
  • K|V|M V1rtual1zat1on (no overselling!)
  • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.4 GHz, 2 cores
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 40 GB HDD
  • 1OO MB1t/s n3tw0rk
  • Debian 6 32-bit (when Debian 7 is released, will be upgraded to Debian 7 64-bit)

S3rv3r 2 (secondary s3rv3r):
  • 0penVZ V1rtual1zat1on (overselling possible)
  • Not as reliable! (But very well spec'ed!)
  • Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU L5410 @ 2.33GHz, 4 cores
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 50 GB HDD
  • 1OO MB1t/s n3tw0rk
  • Debian 6 32-bit (when Debian 7 is released, will be upgraded to Debian 7 64-bit)
Spoiler For Features:
An account gets you:
  • Web space with Python support, latest P|H|P5 support, secure H|T|T|P|S S|S|L, and under a speedy NGINX web s3rv3r!
  • 55H access (duh) with background processes
  • My!S!Q!L access
  • 5F|T|P access
  • NodeJS
  • GCC/G++ compilers
  • Webma1l (username[at]withg.org)
  • 2NC B0unc3r (by request)
  • Rem0te deskt0p (by request)
  • ...and more!
Note that res0urc3s may be limited as necessary for user processes on the s3rv3r.
Resources are reasonably provisioned by need. No, you can't run a Min3|craft s3rv3r here.
Spoiler For How to get one:
DO NOT POST IN THIS TOPIC. Instead, post in the request topic.
Posting in this topic will automatically have your application rejected - don't do it!

You must apply with this simple format:

S3rv3r: 1 or 2
Email (please obscure with (at) or similar to prevent spambots):
Why do you want it?
How you will use the account?
Why do you want it fr33?
Do I agree to the conditions of respect above?
I understand that withgusto is a donation-based service - the availability of this service depends on people like me for donations to pay server costs.
I also understand that my account may be terminated at any time.
Finally, I understand that I am responsible for backing up, and for actions (good or bad) on the server.

Legitimate explanations only! I'm not accepting a dumb, forceful, or crazy explanation. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Spoiler For FAQ:
1) Who manages the s3rv3r? I, alberthrocks, does. I will make sure that the server runs as smoothly as possible, and notify you in advance if any maintenance that will cause downtime is needed.
2) Are I/R/C bots allowed? Yes! However, do note that there are a LOT of my own bots running already on server 1, so availability for EFNet connection may be limited. Remember that any abuse will result in account termination (be respectful to others on the server and outside of it), so please be respectful!
3) What are the limits? We generally don't have limits, but we'll mention some baseline info: 128 MBs of RAM, 1-2 GBs of HDD space, 10-15 processes, overall taking less than 5-10% of C\P\U and/or taking max C\P\U < 3 minutes in a 30 minutes interval. We are very flexible, but again - don't abuse! (Game s3rv3rs eats lots of space and RAM, so that wouldn't work here.) If you use more s3rv3r resources than the limits that we proposed, please consider donating more funds to the network.
4) Are there backups? Yes - we use JungleDisk to backup our servers every 24 hours. Note that JungleDisk does not support fetching files from backup (just restoration to the server). However, we are not liable for backup problems - it is still your responsibility to back up!
5) Will there be FTP? We don't consider FTP to be a safe protocol, and it's troublesome to implement. Nevertheless, we may consider it in the future.
6) Why are some words spelled with numbers? It's to prevent posts like this or this (though the latter turned out to be a staying member, at least for a while).
Spoiler For Admins:
Current admins include:
  • alberthrocks (me)
  • geekboy
  • Eeems
  • Cooliojazz
(If I forgot to include you, tell me!)

We are pretty busy, but you can contact any of us for support, either on IRC or on the forums.
Do NOT contact us for s1gn up requests - they will be rejected.
You must s1gn up on the forums like everyone else (see above "How to get one")

First update will follow this post.

Server Update - 11/25/2012

Importance: MODERATE
Author: albert
Date: Sun Nov 25 00:24:30 EDT 2012

Thanks for your patience!

We have made some changes to the server to allow network (and disk I/O!) to
become faster! We're not too sure if it will help fix some weird SSH issues
(or maybe it's my stupid router), but it certainly feels faster!

To be specific, we enabled VirtIO on the VPS, which allows more direct I/O
and network, which results in faster speed! (No emulating of hard drives or
network cards like before!) The next reboot (which won't be for a while)
will be booting the server OS with that faster speed!

We also forgot to mention another thing - IPv6 now works! It worked before,
but it was broken because the server router gave the wrong IPv6 address to
the server, resulting in some wonky things. The correct static IPv6 address
is set and is now being used after the reboot. Enjoy working IPv6!

Thank you once again for your support, and thanks for bearing withgusto!

DNS flush doesn't help, same with trying to access it via direct ip and ssh through backup2. Can you ping it through backup2?

It should now be fixed - PGLd (PeerGuardian Linux) was probably blocking you! :) It is now stopped and should allow access.

ZNC Update - 02/17/2013

Importance: IMPORTANT
Author: alberthrocks
Date: Sun Feb 17 19:23:00 EDT 2012

We have updated ZNC to v1.0! The new release (a jump from 0.x!) supports multiple networks on one username!
As a result, the following changes have been made: (some of this adapted from the ZNC changelog)

 * Your username is now USERNAME, not USERNAME-NETWORK. You need to change your auth config!
 * To login to ZNC, use user/network:password as password, or user/network as username. Also, you can switch between different networks on the fly using the /znc JumpNetwork command. A network called "default" has been created for each user - EFNet is the current "default". Settings from each user are moved into these "default" networks. When you log into ZNC without setting a network, the "default" network will automatically be chosen for you.
 * Users can create new networks up to an admin-configurable limit. By default, this limit is one five networks per user.
 * You can see a list of networks via /znc ListNetworks and /znc ListAllUserNetworks.

Sorry for the inconvenience! We hope that you enjoy the new ZNC! Please report any problems that you encounter with the new version!

If you would like a ZNC account, please post in the thread mentioned on this topic's first post!

ZNC can be configured via the /znc commands or via a web admin panel (MUCH easier), found here:
