Redirecting web site names
Topic: technology, opinion Link here

I've established that one of the reasons that I have so much web traffic is because I have multiple names that respond to HTTP requests, so crawlers load each page several times. Apart from www.lemis.com, there's also mail.lemis.com, people.lemis.com and lemis.com. How do I tell the client to redirect to www.lemis.com?

Out searching the web, and came up with myriad way to do similar things, including with mod_rewrite, like this page from the the Apache documentation. But further down it came up with the answer: a simple Redirect directive. Just what I was looking for, but why did it take me so long to find it?

So put that in the configuration, which also greatly simplified it:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName      www.lemis.com
        ServerAdmin     grog@lemis.com
        ServerAlias     people.lemis.com lemis.com  mail.lemis.com
        Redirect        "/" "http://www.lemis.com/"
</VirtualHost>

Started up the web server and watched the redirects pour in:

60.221.240.99 - - [12/Oct/2019:01:48:03 +0000] "GET /grog/diary-dec2010.php?dirdate=20101214&imagesizes=111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111112111111111111121111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111112111111111111211111112 HTTP/1.1" 302 452

And did they pour in! I have top running on both old and web servers on my :0.0 display. Later I took a look and discovered:

last pid: 46278;  load averages: 80.51, 54.55, 40.13             up 46+22:15:22  03:59:56
286 processes: 52 running, 233 sleeping, 1 waiting
CPU: 91.3% user,  0.0% nice,  7.1% system,  1.5% interrupt,  0.0% idle
Mem: 543M Active, 1022M Inact, 37M Laundry, 431M Wired, 149M Buf, 48M Free
Swap:

Load average 80! I've never seen that before on the old server. In fact, there's an indication that it passed 100:

last pid: 79336;  load averages: 19.30, 16.94, 18.50821          up 47+16:28:00  22:12:34

Those 5 digits after the last average suggest that the text had once been stretched that far due to the length of the number.

Was that because of the redirects? Shut down the server on oldwww (the old machine) and watched the load average drop to under 3. Why so many?

The other thing was the 302 code. What does it mean?

302 Found (Previously "Moved temporarily")
Tells the client to look at (browse to) another URL.

In other words, go elsewhere this time only. Not what I wanted. More searching and found this page, which told me what the Apache documentation didn't: Redirect takes an optional first argument (shifting the others right). What I wanted was:

        Redirect        permanent "/" "http://www.lemis.com/"

Put that in after I didn't need responsiveness from the system. Hopefully things will calm down by tomorrow.


Can't sync photos
Topic: technology, opinion Link here

After doing yesterday's photos, ran my normal file sync script. Things didn't go exactly according to plan:

rsync: mkdir "/home/grog/www.lemis.com/grog/Photos/20191011" failed: No space left on device (28)
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at main.c(670) [Receiver=3.1.3]
rsync /home/grog/public_html/photos/dirlist www:/home/grog/www.lemis.com/grog/photos
rsync: write failed on "/home/grog/www.lemis.com/grog/photos/dirlist": No space left on device (28)
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at receiver.c(381) [receiver=3.1.3]
Sat 12 Oct 2019 13:50:00 AEDT

It took me a while to realize that the problem was at the remote end. That box has so much more storage than I need! Took a look and finally found my HTTP server error log. 42 GB! I should be rotating the logs, but there are issues with Apache log rotation that I haven't investigated yet. Still, what's in there? The ones at the end were particularly helpful:

[Sat Oct 12 01:47:46.802988 2019] [log_config:warn] [pid 42148] (28)No space left on device: [client 64.62.252.176:42598] AH00646: Error writing to /var/log/www/lemis.com.log
[Sat Oct 12 01:47:46.839821 2019] [log_config:warn] [pid 42048] (28)No space left on device: [client 1.31.97.14:37774] AH00646: Error writing to /var/log/www/lemis.com.log
[Sat Oct 12 01:47:47.235456 2019] [log_config:warn] [pid 42058] (28)No space left on device: [client 123.134.255.141:56777] AH00646: Error writing to /var/log/www/lemis.com.log

Apart from that, lots of warning messages that PHP was previously too polite to report, some from scripts that should no longer be used. Lots of people trying to access Yvonne's photos, which used to be on the server, but are now on DigitalOcean. OK, remove the empty directories (things like /yvonne/Photos/20180827/big/, and think later about how to bend the 404 document to point to the correct place. Remove the old script and link to its replacement. And start fixing the more obvious problems with my scripts. A lot were the unquoted use of $ in text input to a PHP function. And after a while the error log started growing less quickly than the access log. The rest can be done later (how many times have I said that?).


Chris Bahlo for dinner
Topic: food and drink, general Link here

Chris Bahlo for dinner this evening. She was a bit stringy; we should have marinated her. Once nothing worth mentioning: she used to come every Saturday. But times have changed. Spent much time talking about the strange situations many of our acquaintances have got themselves in to.

Power failures: by the dozen
Topic: general, opinion Link here

Amazing information about my grid power today. Between 0:31:26 and 0:33:48 we had no less than 11 grid power failures.

Clearly they weren't long: the total period was 2 minutes, 22 seconds, and the longest outage was 27 seconds. On the other hand, this kind of bouncing is hard on electronics, probably the reason that the inverter waits a minute before reconnecting the grid.

But how do I count this? One 3 minute outage would be longer than the 11 I had. For the time being I'll count it as individual outages.

Could it be that these were brownouts? There have been significant voltage fluctuations, but not at that time:

Of course, that's only part of the truth. Clearly the grid voltage dropped below an acceptable value during that time, but there's nothing whatsoever to show it in the graph. What really happened?


Brisbane Ranges National Park again
Topic: gardening, opinion Link here

It has been almost exactly 10 years since we visited the Brisbane Ranges, specifically to visit the Friends of Brisbane Ranges Wildflower Show. Unfortunately they seem to have stopped doing that, so this year we decided to go it on our own, specifically to the east end of Butchers Road, which runs between Steiglitz (pronounced Stieglitz) and Anakie. We had found the most flowers there 10 years ago, and we weren't disappointed today. Directly next to the car we found two difference species of orchids (at the extreme left and right):

The one on the left is a Caladenia major, and the other is a species of Diuris. Here the are again closer up:

But which Diruis? Diuris pardina? There are some similarities (of course), but also potential differences. Are these two even the same species? My guess is no.

And that's where the problems start. I saw lots of flowers, many clearly orchids, but I can't identify them exactly. Time for a book, I think.

It's tiring business. Yvonne gave up after a couple of photos and took other views, including these:

The Caladenia major were everywhere, but some of the others really needed searching for.

I think that this first one (two photos) is a species of Grevillea; possibly the second one (last photo) is too:

On the way back, passed tracks marked “Wildflower Trak” and “Orchid Trak” on my GPS navigator, which seems to have a predilection for the spelling “Trak”. Stopped at the Wildflower Track, though Yvonne had had enough, and walked down a bit. Yes, wildflowers, but nothing that I hadn't seen at the other place. Met some women who told me that they had seen a spider orchid, and where it was, but all I saw there was one of the Grevilleas I had seen.


Meredith

The way home went through Meredith, a not-so-small town on the road from Ballarat to Geelong. I've been through several times, but never stopped. The weather was good, so today seemed like the day to try it, especially as we discovered that you can buy ammunition and old drinks at the Post Office:

And for some reason the railway station appealed to me, though I can't recall why:

Maybe it was the angled panel under the verandah:

I wonder if it's still in use. The railway line is, but I get the feeling that the station has been converted to a private dwelling.


Web site calming down
Topic: technology, opinion Link here

After the extremely high load averages of the last few days, www.lemis.com is now returning to what I hope will become normal, with typical load averages below 1, though from time to time it goes up to 20.

But barely has that problem gone away that I get another:

From: "support@vultr.com" <support@vultr.com>
To: groggyhimself@lemis.com
Subject: Vultr.com: Bandwidth Warning

The following subscriptions have reached high bandwidth utilization levels:

Subscription:3243454 - 2048 MB Server - 66.42.97.229 (w3.lemis.com): 78% used
...
Please note: Your bandwidth usage cap will reset on the 1st of every month.

Oh. 78% only 13 days into the month? A result of the recent load issues? No, it seems that the bandwidth load has been relatively even. More head-scratching to do.


This page contains (roughly) yesterday's and today's entries. I have a horror of reverse chronological documents, so all my diary entries are chronological. This page normally contains the last two days, but if I fall behind it may contain more. You can find older entries in the archive. Note that I often update a diary entry a day or two after I write it.     Do you have a comment about something I have written? This is a diary, not a “blog”, and there is deliberately no provision for directly adding comments. It's also not a vehicle for third-party content. But I welcome feedback and try to reply to all messages I receive. See the diary overview for more details. If you do send me a message relating to something I have written, please indicate whether you'd prefer me not to mention your name. Otherwise I'll assume that it's OK to do so.
