WordPress (this blog) is constantly being brute forced by bots that scan the internet looking for weak passwords. I wanted to better visualize these attempts. Here’s how I did it with Splunk.
I’ve been using OpenIndiana io_151a2 for over a year now as my home storage solution. It has been rock solid and gives me better IO over iSCSI for VMware than I get in the production Netapp environment at work. It also lets me have some nice big pools with commodity drives for media, backup, VMs, and pretty much everything else I do on the computer.
