Symbolic links or soft links is a special type of file that contains a reference to a file or directory in the form of an absolute or relative path. In other words it’s like a shortcut for those Windows users out there.
I’ll be using CentOS for this tutorial but it’s the same on all distributions of Linux and Unix. (more…)Google+
Channel bonding is also known as Network Bonding. It involves pairing network devices to increase throughput or load balance. Cases that you’d need something like this would be on a server with a high network traffic. Mostly I’ve had this problem with monitoring servers that are running Cacti and Nagios.
Also the devices don’t have to be the same brand.
How do I find my Linux distribution name and version? I often find myself asking that question because we have multiple environments with a lot of VM’s running. It’s becomes a lot to keep track of if you haven’t completed the documentation for the environment yet.

I recently passed the LPIC 101 exam so I thought I’d share a little bit of what comes in the first exam. The two things in this post that were part of the exam would be du with the –max-depth option.

If you’d like the full write-up about the du command then you could check the manual pages.
[root@localhost:/home]# man du
I’ll list the most useful options to use with the du command in this post.Google+
