I am new to the fedora infrastructure group. I am going throug few of the links in the site to get a feel of the work. I have submitted my .ssh_rsa_key.pub from the site. I think I will get some intimation on this. Please someone can let me know further proceedings from here onwards.
Regards & Thanks Prabir Senapati mailto: senapati2001(a)yahoo.com
I've been lurking on the mailing list for a while and I finally
registered for my fedora account today (username: chrisj)
I'm interested in helping out as time permits. I got on irc once
(lurking again) and haven't really logged in since. I'll try to make a
few meetings after the holidays
I'm planning to get my personal test systems setup soon. I just moved
and still getting things straight at home. Bought a 750GB drive last
night and will be installing F10 over the weekend. I had been running
the U... distro and it's time to get back to the fedora/RH rpm way of
doing things :-)
I've used RedHat since before Fedora existed (I think 6 was the first
one). Started as a hobbyist, 2 years. Then got a job as an admin and
have been doing Linux admin and Cisco networks for the last 5 years.
My current employer is a Win shop so I just get to run the DNS,
email, and network, but the network is 50 remote offices and 3
different data centers in the midwest. I don't mind the Windows too
much and can find my way around them, it's also kinda fun to get the
Linux and MS products to play nice together. I've worked with a lot of
different linux and OSS software products including: postfix,
openldap, apache, bind, samba, mailman, pam, built some custom rpm's,
etc. I use RHEL mostly at work and some fedora and Cent for testing
(some suse, deb, and slackware in the past). I used to do lots of
security firewall apliances with various linux distros (I was a big
fan of LRP when it would fit on a floppy), most of this is now done
with Cisco in my world. I can shell script pretty well and I've
written several perl scripts in the last few years (dabbled in php but
not enough to know it well). I've always been interested in python but
don't have much if any exp with it. I also don't have much experience
with SQL/DB or source control.
I was looking at the FIGs and would be interested in the base sysadmin
and sysadmin-noc for now while I figure out where everything is and
what it does. I'm also interested in more info on the sysadmin-tools
and sysadmin-web FIG.
So, next just apply for the FIGs, keep lurking, ask some questions,
show up for IRC meetings?
Lets pool some knowledge together because at this point, I'm missing
I've been doing all measurements with sar as bonnie, etc, causes builds to
Problem: We're seeing slower then normal disk IO. At least I think we
are. This is a PERC5/E and MD1000 array.
When I try to do a normal copy "cp -adv /mnt/koji/packages /tmp/" I get
When I do a cp of a large file "cp /mnt/koji/out /tmp/" I get
Then I "dd if=/dev/sde of=/dev/null" I get around 60-70 MBytes/s read.
If I "cat /dev/sde > /dev/null" I get between 225-300MBytes/s read.
The above tests are pretty consistent. /dev/sde is a raid5 array,
So my question here is, wtf? I've been working to do a backup which I
would think would either cause network utilization to max out, or disk io
to max out. I'm not seeing either. Sar says the disks are 100% utilized
but I can cause major increases in actual disk reads and writes by just
running additional commands. Also, if the disks were 100% utilized I'd
expect we would see lots more iowait. We're not though, iowait on the box
is only %0.06 today.
So, long story short, we're seeing much better performance when just
reading or writing lots of data (though dd is many times slower then cat).
But with our real-world traffic, we're just seeing crappy crappy IO.
Thoughts, theories or opinions? Some of the sysadmin noc guys have access
to run diagnostic commands, if you want more info about a setting, let me
I should also mention there's lots going on with this box, for example its
hardware raid, lvm and I've got xen running on it (though the tests above
were not in a xen guest).

I have installed the eggs of customfield plugin and webadmin plugin.
But they are not showing up.
May be I need to enable them trac.ini.
I don't find it in puppet and neither can I see it through TracAdmin panel.
Hello opensource contributers and infrastructure specialists,
my name is Sascha Thomas Spreitzer, I life in the east of Munich in
the heart of Bavaria, which is in the south of Germany.
I have several years of Unix system administration experience, that is
now in use at the BAADER Bank AG and was formerly at the german
Sparkasse banks organization.
My current job description refers to "UNIX system engineer and
platform specialist". I am very familiar with planning, integration
and maintenance of Unix systems in data centre and internet
I have done several courses and trainings and gained the RHCE
certification as well as some IBM AIX certifications.
As im using fedora day by day, I decided to help and contribute on it.
I hope I can help this project.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen, / with kind regards,

When you click on 'User List' in the left hand side of FAS, you get an
UnboundLocalError that 'user' is referenced before defined. This is
the result of some code in list() in user.py that was modified to
allow the return of selected fields. However, if the query does not
specify what fields are wanted, the 'user' variable is not defined.
I tried to define it at the end if it didn't exist with person, but
that didn't seem to work for some reason. The patch below is a little
hackish, but functional.
