  • in Debian-based systems apt-get could be limited to the specified bandwidth in kilobytes using the apt configuration options(man 5 apt.conf, man apt-get). I'd quote man 5 apt.conf: "The used bandwidth can be limited with Acquire::http::Dl-Limit which accepts integer values in kilobyte. The default value is 0 which deactivates the limit and tries uses as much as possible of the bandwidth..." "HTTPS URIs. Cache-control, Timeout, AllowRedirect, Dl-Limit and proxy options are the same as for http..."


    2
    sudo apt-get -o Acquire::http::Dl-Limit=20 -o Acquire::https::Dl-Limit=20 upgrade -y

  • This form is used in patches, svn, git etc. And I've created an alias for it: alias diff='diff -Naur --strip-trailing-cr' The latter option is especially useful, when somebody in team works in Windows; could be also used in commands like svn diff --diff-cmd 'diff --strip-trailing-cr'... Show Sample Output


    4
    diff -Naur --strip-trailing-cr

  • If colordiff utility installed, it is sometimes handy to call this command. Of course, you should create an alias for it. E.g. svndiff.

  • The command copies a file from remote SSH host on port 8322 with bandwidth limit 100KB/sec; --progress shows a progress bar --partial turns partial download on; thus, you can resume the process if something goes wrong --bwlimit limits bandwidth by specified KB/sec --ipv4 selects IPv4 as preferred I find it useful to create the following alias: alias myscp='rsync --progress --partial --rsh="ssh -p 8322" --bwlimit=100 --ipv4' in ~/.bash_aliases, ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login or ~/.bashrc where appropriate. Show Sample Output


    17
    rsync --progress --partial --rsh="ssh -p 8322" --bwlimit=100 --ipv4 user@domain.com:~/file.tgz .

Check These Out

Print entire field if string is detected in column
It searches for a specific value in the specified column and if it finds it it'll print the whole field/row. Similarly, if you don't know what you're looking for exactly but want to exclude something you're already aware of, you can exclude that "something: awk '{ if ($column != "string") print $0}'

Enable verbose boot in Mac OS X Open Firmware

Extract audio stream from an AVI file using mencoder

Get the weather forecast for the next 24 to 48 for your location.
This shell function grabs the weather forecast for the next 24 to 48 hours from weatherunderground.com. Replace <YOURZIPORLOCATION> with your zip code or your "city, state" or "city, country", then calling the function without any arguments returns the weather for that location. Calling the function with a zip code or place name as an argument returns the weather for that location instead of your default. To add a bit of color formatting to the output, use the following instead: $weather(){ curl -s "http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/ForecastXML/index.xml?query=${@:-}"|perl -ne '/([^

Pull git submodules in parallel using GNU parallel
Make sure to run this command in your git toplevel directory. Modify `-j4` as you like. You can also run any arbitrary command beside `git pull` in parallel on all of your git submodules.

Remotely sniff traffic and pass to snort
I have a small embedded linux device that I wanted to use for sniffing my external network, but I didn't want to recompile/cross-compile snort for the embedded platform. So I used tcpdump over ssh to pass all the traffic as pcap data to a "normal" Linux system that then takes the pcap data and passes it to snort for processing.
