JungleDisk – Server Daemon Not Responding, No Backups, Not cool?

So I noticed that one of my servers wasn’t being backed up via email alerts recently. Usually I’m on top of it, but I noticed recently one less email from JungleDisk (I get completion notices on all JungleDisk Backups).

So I opened up the Jungle Disk Server Edition Management and found that I couldn’t connect to the machine I was trying to open. I thought, hrmm this happened before I just need to restart the “junglediskserver” process on the server in question. At which point I could then see the server listed in the Management console.

Once selected the server to see when the last backup was, I noticed it was 24 days from the last complete backup. I was super surprised and kinda ticked off because I didn’t notice this quick enough to fix it and neither did JungleDisk. I mean if there are 24 missed backup windows, don’t you think I should be notified.

I described the above to JungleDisk in an email to their Feedback address, lets see how they respond.

Update #1: I got a response from JungleDisk via email, they directed me to their Support System at which point I was able to post a feature request. But to my surprise their were already a handful of similar requests, so I dropped my two bits in. The one thread was over 2 years old. Great software, bad community relationship.

Update #2: I haven’t been following the thread on Jungledisk’s support site as I’ve pretty much decided to live with this problem. However, another awesome thing happened (I’m being sarcastic). Jungledisk was doing a backup and it either started super slow or during the backup it slowed down, either way the backup was going at 0.1k/s and wasn’t going to finish. It kept running, it missed the next backup window and I only knew this because I got no email about the job completing. You would think if a job takes too long and the next backup window is forthcoming, why not notify via email that it’s happening.

Boeing’s unmanned A160T Hummingbird helicopter takes flight

Not the first Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) made. But the Boeing A160HT Humming Bird should be one of the best once further tests and simulation in combat missions is completed.
Boeing's unmanned A160T Hummingbird helicopter takes flight -

Filed under:


It's been a few ticks since we've seen Boeing send an atypical aircraft into the friendly skies, but the firm's latest helicopter has successfully completed a 12-minute test flight without so much as a pilot on board. The A160T Hummingbird unmanned rotorcraft is a turbine-powered "warfighter" that aims to provide "intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance coverage" in locales that could make even the most calloused veteran queasy. During its time in the air, it reportedly met every objective set for it, and while we've no idea how soon this thing will be lifting itself up, it'll eventually reach speeds of up to 140 knots and stay airborne for up to 20 hours before returning to base for a pat on the wing.

MySQL and OpenSSL Replication what a mess!

Just a heads up, if you do decide to enable OpenSSL so you can do encrypted MySQL replication. There are two bugs that will affect replication and the mysqldump command. They're as follows: Bug #24148 regression tests hang with SSL enabled http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=24148 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/17286 Bug #27669 mysqldump: Got error: 2026: SSL connection error when trying to connect http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=27669 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/24329 This may cause lots of problems with MySQL and SSL Replication using OpenSSL. Cheers!
