03:46 mikemol Pleased with that last batch of server tuning efforts.
03:47 mikemol Someone's been slamming the server for the past several hours with an intense mirroring process. The server remains floored at no entropy in its pool, but it's still perfectly responsive.
03:52 sorear What does the server need entropy for?
03:52 sorear SSL session keys?

15:50 mikemol sorear: Entropy gets sucked up by anything requiring random numbers. Off the top of my head, for us, that'll include address space layout and UDP and TCP source port randomization for things like DNS queries.

15:52 mikemol I'll probably want to go through and install a local instance of bind again, for local nameserver caching. And disable rdns queries where I can find it.
16:58 Coderjoe mikemol: might I suggest dnscache from djbdns (or the dbndns fork, which should include ipv6 and stuff)?

21:51 mwn3d_phone Did someone talk about what dgamey and dkf are doing?
21:51 mwn3d_phone (Using a transclusion trick for examples on subpages)
21:53 mikemol Something we were looking at doing with SMW anyway. Haven't looked at it myself.
21:53 mwn3d_phone I don't think its quite how we wanted SMW to do it
21:53 mwn3d_phone And I'm not sure what problem its solving doing it their way

22:00 mikemol I don't see it as a problem right now, and I like that they're including edit links with the code.
22:04 mwn3d_phone1 joined #rosettacode
22:07 sorear mikemol: Ah.  I'm kind of suprised that ASLR and source port selection use crypto entropy
