Sharing - Leap Second Bug in RedHat

The UTC time standard, which is widely used for international timekeeping on computer systems, uses the international standard definition of the second, based on atomic clocks. However, the duration
of one mean solar day is slightly longer than 86,400 seconds (a UTC day). The purpose of a leap second is to compensate for this drift, by scheduling days with 86401 or 86399 international standard seconds.
Because the Earth's rotation speed varies in response to natural events, UTC leap seconds are irregularly spaced and unpredictable. The last leap second occured at 23:59:59 UTC on 31 December 2008. Leap seconds occur based on UTC time, and therefore are timezone independent and occur around the world at the same moment, regardless of local time.

Sharing - Leap Second Bug in RedHat

The UTC time standard, which is widely used for international timekeeping on computer systems, uses the international standard definition of the second, based on atomic clocks. However, the duration
of one mean solar day is slightly longer than 86,400 seconds (a UTC day). The purpose of a leap second is to compensate for this drift, by scheduling days with 86401 or 86399 international standard seconds.
Because the Earth's rotation speed varies in response to natural events, UTC leap seconds are irregularly spaced and unpredictable. The last leap second occured at 23:59:59 UTC on 31 December 2008. Leap seconds occur based on UTC time, and therefore are timezone independent and occur around the world at the same moment, regardless of local time.

By default in modern kernels every 1/1000th of a second (1ms) the kernel can make new process scheduling decisions. This 1ms interval is called a kernel "tick".

* How the event is triggered *
  1. The system inherits a leap second flag from an upstream NTP server with knowledge of the upcoming leap second. (This occurs on the day of the leap second event and cannot be unset.)
  2. At 23:59:59 UTC on the leap second day, the kernel sees the leap second flag and causes 23:59:59 UTC to occur twice
  3. In order to process the leap second event a lock is acquired to access the current time
  4. While processing the leap second the kernel issues a printk to notify the user that the leap second has occurred
  5. The printk triggers klogd to wake up so that it can process the new kernel message
  6. klogd attempts to acquire a lock to access the current kernel time.

If step 3 happens on the same core and during the same tick as step 6 then a deadlock occurs (on xtime_lock).

* Likelihood of Occurrence *

It's exceptionally unlikely that the triggering events would happen as required to cause a hang. It is
extremely difficult to trigger this issue during reproduction attempts, even when those reproduction attempts included artificially introducing high printk loads to attempt to trigger the hang.

* Workarounds *

Updating to kernel version kernel-2.6.9-89.EL (RHEL4) or kernel-2.6.18-164.el5 in RHEL5, or any later RHEL kernel is the most reliable method to avoid any impact from this bug. The bug has been
patched in these kernel versions. If your environment includes systems with a kernel version //lower//
than the those patched kernels and you remain concerned even with the low probability of encountering this issue, there are several workarounds available to further mitigate the risk of encountering this bug.

  1. Manually adjust the system time so that 2012-06-30 T23:59:59 UTC never occurs.
  2. Disable NTP clients on the affected system at least a full day ahead of the leap second so that the leap second flag is never inherited.
Then, re-enable NTP on those systems after the leap second has occured. It's important to insure that the tzdata package installed on the system has not been updated to include the 2012-06-30 leap second, as the
system can inherit the leap second flag from the tzdata file as well, even if NTP is disabled.

Next Project - Unlocking Wii

During my visit to the UK, I was amazed by Wii, something that used to look luxurious to me last time. I've been sweating playing all the games and further my father even had an intention to buy it during his visit last time but in the end he didn't.

Anyway, my brother in Law told me that Wii can be unlocked to run the copy of games and also to do all the wonders. It is by default, not able to run the copied CD, not able to play DVDs and so on.

Being so much interested to get myself a project to fill in my wasted time, I went to Meadow Hall Mall in the Sheffield and I've got myself a set of pre-owned Wii with the price of around 50 UK pounds sterling from Sheffield and it was tested to be working well. That's around RM250, which come complete with the motion plus.

Quickly ran through all sort of reading, I've actually bought a broken link apps by mistake and I even bought another link which seems to be able to work but it is now pending for another item.And I'm also pending for the refund of the apps from the broken link. WTF.

After doing all the reading, I have everything now, except for the original Lego Adventure game; the original CD. In order to unlock Wii, I need to play the game until the first level (which I'm not very good at seriously :p) save it and start the hack from there.

I was actually looking for Sport Resort original CD and it seems like someone is selling it and I might be going to see him tomorrow. Eventually, he sensed that I wanted to do the unlocking project and he suggested other Lego game that can work.

Owh yeah, I don't have the non SDHC card (1-2 GB). Do you guys have any?

Wish me all the best guys. This project is gonna begin tomorrow...!

Planting Chillies

The best way to plant chillies without having to pay a lot of attention to it is by planting it inside a polystyrene fishing box. Ample of soil and u can plant as many as 10-15 plants in that box. They will eagerly fight with each other to grow and below is the result...! Nice? Hell nice..!

Apa dah jadi dengan TV9?

TV9 adalah antara channel yang paling banyak menyiarkan rancangan2 keagamaan dan banyak juga menampilkan tokoh2 agama yang sangat hebat dan disegani. Tapi pada masa yang sama, TV9 juga menampilkan ahlil nujum????

Hari ni, dalam rancangan Nasi Lemak Kopi O yang saya jarang2 menonton, ada ditampilkan seorang pakar motivasi yang juga terkenal dengan ilmu kenali diri melalui tarikh lahir anda. Perkara2 sebegini biasanya hanya dilakukan oleh orang2 bukan Islam sahaja. Ini tak lebih tak kurang sama macam menilik nasib.

Apa hukumnya menilik nasib? Lu pikirlah sendiri...

How to boost your UniFi speed?

The fact that a lot of people suffered from bad Unifi speed was REAL. It happens to me.

For the past few days, I was feeling like everything was getting really slow. Some might experience slowness in both ways (download and upload) but I think it's quite weird that my upload speed was okay (constantly from 4-5 MBPS) but my download speed went down to not more than 200 kbps, and the slowest recorded was 15kbps, even slower than the PSTN dial up speed.

It used to be at least 1MBPS, when sometimes it goes up to 2 or 3 and 4 but never reached 5 MBPS.

I reported the problem to TM and I only got not less than 15 report numbers for the past 24 hours. Just the report numbers. Nothing more than that. What a service??

Talked to a few friends and Wan suggested that might be due to the router problem. I was just trying my luck and decided to look for the router.

Searched thoroughly on the NET and found out a site, http://unifi.athena.my, which list out all the compatible routers to be working with the current UniFi setup.

So today I went to LowYat Plaza (the heaven on earth for geeks & nerds like me) and looked around for the router. I was stopped at a shop and told that they have a wide range of routers. I checked the site and found out a router with 300 MBPS N WiFi. Priced at RM79, it's a TP-LINK TL-WR841ND.

Headed home after a nice dinner at the al-Rawsha. Popped the router from the box and connect it to one of my laptop while the other one to look for the ways to configure it on the Net.

Downloaded the firmware after so many failing attempts due to the failing UniFi connection, immediately I load it into the router and reboot, configured everything and VOILA! The Internet seems to be improving!


Did the test and it was showing figures around 7-8 MBPS this time. That means the original router provided by TM was faulty from the beginning! Lucky I had a faulty device. I'm not only getting a cheaper replacement (TM's default router will cost you RM150), I'm also getting a better connection now!

I just had my UniFi installed for slightly more than a month. How do you explain that?

UniFi does not sucks. It's the people there. Providing people with faulty items and faulty services, as even the Customer Service failed!
* Please let me know if you are interested and would like to know more how this can be done. It's actually all over the Internet but if you're so lazy, just let me know I can do it for you.

Regrets

Today while I was at a fuel station trying to fill up my petrol, as the card was failing, there comes a guy handing me something by asking me,

"Can you help me fill up my motorbike petrol for 2 or 3 ringgit? I'm heading to hospital Kajang to visit ....."

I refused at first and he turned his back to me but I managed to call him back and handed him two piece of RM1 notes and he left thankfully to the counter and paid.

I drove off. They returned an error on my cards.
.
.
.
.
Later on I felt like crying... He must have been in his worst situation. Maybe he was even unable to buy food for himself. Maybe he wants to buy something for the one he's visiting.

I should have given him more... -sigh-

Do you know there's a substitute for sugar?

People were trying to substitute sugar for years. Mostly involve chemical and what not. There's a sweetener produced by ajinomoto! What do you expect?

As most people don't care what's being consumed in their body, some concerned people keep on researching.

This is what they've got. And that is why I'm experiencing with it.

It's Stevia!

Call it a quit!


I've been tobaccoless for 40 days now. It's not easy but not hard though. I'm just happy and eager to see how clean my lungs would be now.

Today I'm just happy to see my pot plants to grow well. Alhamdulillah, as for the past 2 years i was here, my plants were struggling well to survive. 

Just like me, I'm struggling for the sake of the best of my life; that's my family. I've been honoured with a cute playful daughter who stole our sleeps at nights but keeps us cherished with her cheeky smiles.

All the best, and welcome 2012.

Why Gardening?

I used to (and still) love cooking. The urge to cook came after the need to satisfy my very own need to eat food with the specific flavor or taste I wanted to. Those days, it was challenging and still I am still looking forward for producing food that I have never did.

As my father retires, I started to stay on my own (in my own home) since 2008. My mom left a few pots of her plants with me since getting everything on the truck is pretty impractical. My parents are thing junkies. They kept on buy things and keep them for good.

I have no problem taking care of those plants. I water 'em everyday (there were just 3-4 pots anyway).

But i started to have problem when I'm away. Those plants gets dry and dead.

What happened next?
