Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

Doesn't list connections to other ports than port 80. Not f.e. 8080 or 8091.

Excludes programs listening for connections, like your favorite webserver.

Easiest way to check which modules are loaded in apache.

while [ 1 ]; do tail /var/log/httpd/error_log; sleep 2; clear; done
awk -F\" '/^DocumentRoot/{print $2}' $(httpd -V | awk -F\" '/\.conf/{print $2}')
httpd -V | grep -i SERVER_CONFIG_FILE | cut -f2 -d'"' | xargs grep -i '^DocumentRoot' | cut -f2 -d'"'

It's not my code, but I found it useful to know how many open connections per request I have on a machine to debug connections without opening another http connection for it.

You can also decide to sort things out differently then the way it appears in here.

awk '/q=/{print $11}' /var/log/httpd/access_log.4 | awk -F 'q=' '{print $2}' | sed 's/+/ /g;s/%22/"/g;s/q=//' | cut -d "&" -f 1
cat /var/log/httpd/access_log | grep q= | awk '{print $11}' | awk -F 'q=' '{print $2}' | sed 's/+/ /g;s/%22/"/g;s/q=//' | cut -d "&" -f 1 | mail [email protected] -s "[your-site] search strings for `date`"

It's not a big line, and it *may not* work for everybody, I guess it depends on the detail of access_log configuration in your httpd.conf. I use it as a prerotate command for logrotate in httpd section so it executes before access_log rotation, everyday at midnight.

This let you know which modules has loaded the Apache server, very useful to know if the mod_rewrite is ready to use.
