Greetings! Unfortunately due to the mountains of spam I am getting in the comments and contact form, I am temporarily disabling comments. Once I can get the Captcha plugin working correctly, I will re enable commenting and the contact form. I apologize to those whose questions and comments I unintentionally deleted while cleaning out the spam!
This simple bash one liner will show you how to find the number of requests Apache or Nginx has served per hour on a specified date. This information will allow you to quickly determine a spike in traffic or possible attack on a server.
When reviewing access logs on servers, you may find yourself wondering, where in the world is this IP address from? After being asked this hundreds of times, a coworker started building a API in python to return the geographic location of an IP address. This API, now called wherediz? is a script friendly way to find the location of an IP address.
