With most Linux distributions you do have emergency access to the kernel should your machine freeze or become unresponsive to normal keyboard input. This then can allow for a safe reboot. In this tip we investigate some of the features of SysRq.
In a moderate to large ZENworks Configuration Management 10 Zone the volume of messages generated into the Zone database can become huge. Novell provides a mechanism to delete messages but not to automate the deletions. In this tip I show a simple vbscript that can be scheduled to delete messages older than 90 days.
You get to work and and you get a call that a client pc is slow and that GroupWise ain't working! Try this -- it could only be a 5-min fix and a reboot. Zoom in and focus on the gwsync service.
Sometimes it's handy to know how many people are logged into an OES server. We also like to have logging turned on so we know how high the utilization is at different times of the day. It's very easy to create a script for this thanks to ncpcon.
