Somehow I’ve only just found out about ‘qshape’. It’s a nice little tool to help show what’s going on, on a postfix based mail server. You can summarise by sender (-s) and choose the queue …. which is a bit easier than trying to spot patterns in the ‘mailq’ output.

The docs/guides online… Continue reading Virtualbox 4.2 VM autostart on Debian Squeeze & Wheezy
Interestingly (well, perhaps not really) this is very easy. In my case, I’m hoping that the migration will lead to faster fsck times (currently it’s taking about an hour, which is somewhat excessive, each time the server crashes for whatever reason). In my case, the filesystem is /dev/md0 and mounted at /home – change the… Continue reading Migrating an ext3 filesystem to ext4 (Debian Squeeze)
