September 13, 2022: RTFM Duo

This month, we had a couple short RTFM-style presentations: First, Brad Vokey presented on bpytop/btop++. Next, Trevor Cordes (who normally prefers working quietly behind the scenes on coding or newsletter editing) presented on configuring rsyslog to suppress annoying log messages.

Bpytop - a Python port and continuation of bashtop(1)

This month Brad Vokey gave us a quick demonstration of byptop, as well as its new sibling, btop++. Bpytop is a colorful, efficient, responsive, terminal resource monitor that shows usage and stats for your processor, memory, disks, network and processes. Written in Python by the original author of bashtop, the author claims it is faster and much better supported. (Btop++ is essentially a rewrite in C++.) Add some bling to your original old top(1) command!

Fighting the PHPower with rsyslog

Help! The new PHP8 has made normal, everyday scripting practices an error on screen or in the logfiles. Fight the power and reclaim your PHP sanity using rsyslog and its filtering options. But beware, rsyslog itself is a minefield of inexplicableness. Trevor Cordes led us on a quick and easy path to victory over PHP, and any other daemon you may disagree with!

Trevor has made his presentation slides, as text files in a .tar.bz2 archive, available online.
