th1aHi replaceafill.17:22
replaceafillhey th1a17:22
th1aOne piece of good news, we got paid from Burundi!17:22
replaceafilli was checking their backups last week17:23
th1aAre they doing things?17:23
replaceafilli was thinking we could scp them to sielibre.com17:23
th1aWe need to move soon.17:23
replaceafillthey are using the instance, no doubt17:23
replaceafilli'm getting a lot of IO notifications from linode17:23
replaceafillfrom that server17:24
th1aAny idea why?17:24
th1aDo we need to set up the monitoring doo-hickey?17:24
replaceafilland it's always at the same hour of the day17:24
replaceafilli assume it's because they're hitting the app17:24
th1aYeah, but jeez.17:24
replaceafilland linode alerts are kind of noisy17:24
th1aHow is that set?17:25
replaceafillsame happens with peas17:25
replaceafill...when they used to use it...17:25
replaceafillthere's an Alerts tab in linode manager17:25
th1aI get cpu warnings every day.17:26
replaceafillSettings tab17:27
replaceafillon the linode17:27
replaceafillEmail Alert Thresholds part17:27
replaceafillaccording to baia logs, they're using the journal17:28
th1aCan you add that stub for the monitoring thingy on Linode?17:29
replaceafillwhere do you plan to move
th1aTo linode.17:29
replaceafillyou mean longvieW?17:29
th1aSounds right.17:29
replaceafillah ok17:29
replaceafillwill do17:29
replaceafilli plan to work on two scripts too17:29
replaceafillthe one for copying the backups17:30
replaceafilland the one for email notifications when the service goes down17:30
replaceafilloh, is tektonic?17:30
replaceafilli mean, not today17:30
replaceafillduring the weekend probably17:30
th1aI think maybe we should get a small US linode and put the website on it, and then we'll have two for cross-backups.17:31
replaceafillis there any problem with tektonic?17:31
replaceafillor is it just that you want all of them in linode?17:31
replaceafillmore expensive?17:32
th1aPretty much just that and the tectonic one is more expensive at this point.17:32
replaceafillah got it17:32
th1aBut basically I want them under one roof.17:32
replaceafillyeah, and a small linode is enough for sielibre.com17:33
th1aOh, is paid through the end of next august.17:33
th1aI realized there was no reason not to just do that.17:33
replaceafilloh, so we don't have to worry for it yet, right?17:33
th1aI suppose we could just take over dev.schooltool.org17:33
th1aThat also might make more sense!17:33
th1aMake it and start paying for it.17:34
replaceafillyou mean, use dev for
th1aIt is on a different account I suppose.17:34
replaceafilli think so17:35
replaceafillwell, two instances under the same account17:35
th1aIs dev. the more complicated one?17:35
replaceafilldev has some demo instances up17:35
th1adoes have the more complicated machinery though?17:35
th1aThat menesis set up?17:36
replaceafillwe set longview for dev17:36
replaceafillhhmm i don't think so17:36
replaceafillthat's i think17:36
th1aDoes one run tests or something?17:36
replaceafillbuildbot, logs, eggs17:36
th1awww has that stuff.17:36
th1aANd it is going to run for a year.17:36
th1aSo we can just turn dev. off at the end of the year.17:37
replaceafilldev is a good target for sielibre.com17:37
replaceafillwe could use some kind of server inventory doc :P17:37
th1aI have one!17:37
th1aI don't know what's on them though!17:37
th1aIt doesn't sound like it is worth complicating the accounting to keep the dev. server.17:38
th1aI'd rather start fresh.17:38
th1aAlso, it is more server than we need.17:38
replaceafillah ok17:38
replaceafill3G of RAM!17:38
th1aThat's the advantage...17:38
replaceafillbut is not RAM intensive anyway17:39
th1aYou should rsync the backups, ofc.17:39
th1aHopefully we'll be putting some schooltools on it!17:39
replaceafillwe can always upgrade it17:40
replaceafilli like the approach we used for baia17:40
replaceafilla separate server for them17:40
th1aWe at least need one at each side of the Atlantic.17:41
th1aOK, so for these guys in Senegal (?), who want to import grades.17:41
replaceafillyou mean Germio, right?17:41
th1aAh, right.17:42
th1aSo it sounds like they just need a report sheet with a final grade per (linked?) section.17:43
th1aSo, assuming all the other data was in (!),17:43
th1aWe really just would need:17:44
th1astudentid, sectionid, score17:44
th1astudentid, score17:44
th1astudentid, score17:44
replaceafillthat's what they provided, right?17:45
replaceafillin the last csv17:45
replaceafillcolumns A, E, and C17:46
replaceafillfrom his last email, i don't understand if he wants that score system set17:46
th1aI'll ask.17:47
replaceafilland used...17:47
replaceafillbecause they've provided decimal grades17:47
replaceafill5.5, etc17:47
th1aI'll ask.17:48
replaceafilli think they provided course and section "titles" not ids17:49
replaceafillbased on their schooltool export17:49
th1aThis just takes some patience...17:49
th1aOK, did you have any luck with the attendance date bug?17:49
replaceafillwell kind of17:50
replaceafillthere's an issue definitely with the timezone17:51
replaceafillschool attendance converts the dates based on it17:51
replaceafilland the section journal doesn't17:51
th1aMaybe we should take the option to set the timezone out of the ui.17:51
replaceafilli was able to produce some mismatches17:51
replaceafillbut not exactly like the user had it17:52
th1aTimezones literally delayed SchoolTool AT LEAST six months...17:52
replaceafill(just a missing date)17:52
th1aOK, so I should ask him to reset the timezone...?17:52
replaceafilli was thinking of asking the user for his timetable setup? (screenshot maybe)17:52
th1aOK, my friend just arrived to do some electrical work.17:53
th1aCan I we pick this up in a bit?17:53
replaceafilli'll go eat for like 30 mins17:53
replaceafilland be back17:53
th1aOK, cool.17:53
th1aOK, done replaceafill.18:55
replaceafilli'm installing longview in baia18:55
replaceafilland reading about fail2ban18:55
replaceafilldenyhosts is not available in 14.04 :(18:56
replaceafillth1a, where's the doc you mentioned18:57
replaceafillabout the servers inventory18:57

replaceafillyou beat me for 2 minutes :D21:00
replaceafilli just sent Anthony an email with requests21:01
