13:59 jimi_c   I built a drupal web farm this week (4 4x8 web servers, 3 memcache servers, 1 mysql db) that apparently was able to sustain ~60K req/sec - I'm pretty happy with that :)
14:00 pdurbin  jimi_c: +1
14:00 pdurbin  right now i'm looking at this... i think it might actually work... osx - Can I create a chat room for 3 different clients for Gtalk service? - Ask Different - http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/38870/can-i-create-a-chat-room-for-3-different-clients-for-gtalk-service
14:01 jimi_c   don't cross the streams
14:08 pdurbin  :)
14:10 pdurbin  ben_e: django comes up a fair amount here: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2012-07-26#i_5848836
14:12 pdurbin  spilth: i don't think you need to prefix with devopsdays. i wouldn't bother :)
14:21 sjoeboo  anyone in here use nagios a good deal?
14:23 pdurbin  a bit
14:31 sjoeboo  we're still having ack's get squashed when nagios is reloaded
14:31 sjoeboo  super anoying
14:32 pdurbin  huh. that does sound annoying :(
14:32 pdurbin  i just got access to our opsview (built on nagios) yesterday
14:32 sjoeboo  very, and mailing lists posts w/ similr issues seem unanswered. can't be a unsolved problem...
15:18 pdurbin  sjoeboo: let's ask shuff when he's in here
15:18 sjoeboo  yeah
15:18 sjoeboo  all i'm getting in #nagios is one guy saying he think its a known issue, he is a large number of versions behind, but has no links to bugs/docs
