Test load balancers

curl --resolve subdomain.example.com:80:10.100.0.1 subdomain.example.com -I -s
With the "--resolve" switch, you can avoid doing DNS lookups or edit the /etc/hosts file, by providing the IP address for a domain directly. Useful if you have many servers with different IP addresses behind a load balancer. Of course, you would loop it: for IP in 10.11.0.{1..10}; do curl --resolve subdomain.example.com:80:$IP subdomain.example.com -I -s; done

  • Maybe this will help you to monitor your load balancers or reverse proxies if you happen to use them. This is useful to discover TIME OUTS and this will let you know if one or more of your application servers is not connected by checking. Show Sample Output

  • I run this via crontab every one minute on my machine occasionally to see if a process is eating up my system's resources.

  • While `echo rm * | batch` might seem to work, it might still raise the load of the system since `rm` will be _started_ when the load is low, but run for a long time. My proposed command executes a new `rm` execution once every minute when the load is small. Obviously, load could also be lower using `ionice`, but I still think this is a useful example for sequential batch jobs. Show Sample Output

  • Show the current load of the CPU as a percentage. Read the load from /proc/loadavg and convert it using sed: Strip everything after the first whitespace: sed -e 's/ .*//' Delete the decimal point: sed -e 's/\.//' Remove leading zeroes: sed -e 's/^0*//' Show Sample Output

    sed -e 's/ .*//' -e 's/\.//' -e 's/^0*//' /proc/loadavg
