A little background on what we are doing first. We are running several applications from a CLI, and not all of them are fully functional. They do on occasion core dump, not a problem. We are running a service that takes a screen scrape of those apps and displays them in a more user friendly Java window.
I connect remotely using ssh (putty). 90% of the time I tried to run a network related command, the server restarts. It becomes unavailable for few minutes and then back again. I noticed the first problem when I tried to svn checkout. I tried to restart the network service, but putty keeps giving me "Network error: Software caused connection abort".
I'd like to get a list of all of the apps (across all users) on my machine that are talking to the X server. What's the most reliable way to do that? Find the socket X runs on and lsof for connections to it? I'm running both Linux and Solaris boxes, so I'd be interested in answers for both OS's.
I had a Moodle 2.3 installation, that was running fine.
Upgraded to Moodle 2.5, now the notifications page says Cron job not run in 24 hrs.
So, the cron stopped running.
I ran it via a browser/URL and it took a while and never finished, the server froze and I had to restart it. I'm assuming this isnt supposed to happen, but I have been afraid of running cron again.
