When I was yet to touch the 5-year age mark, I wanted to be a cop. A swashbuckling, bad-guys-beating, brave police officer. Yes, yes, those were the days of Kiran Bedi-inspired ‘Udaan’ being aired on the only television channel of our times, Doordarshan. From those pre-‘Dabangg’ cop dreams to wanting to act to becoming a journalist and then running my own startups…my professional aspirations metamorphosed many times. I dreamed dreams of unmatchable ambition. Also Read – A special kind of bondBut through all my professional ups and downs, as I often oscillated between disillusionment and carving my own identity, I always found myself eventually aspiring for bigger, better things. From a better quality of life to greater work-life balance, from increasing stable incomes to adding appreciating assets, as with any other normal individual, I too aspired to be better tomorrow than I am today, and achieve that happiness that we all continuously pursue and try to hold on to. Happiness may mean different things to different people but the pursuit of it is real. Economic happiness, emotional bliss, or spiritual contentment — all of us on this planet are chasing some form of happiness at varying stages of our lives. Even the monk or the ascetic is chasing something – greater peace, more spirituality, etc. All of us are constantly chasing, aspiring, dreaming. Also Read – Insider threat managementIn this land of more than a billion dreams, where hopes die deaths of poverty and malnutrition every day, we all saw a collective dream. In 2014, shaking the corridors of power, a chaiwallah had become Prime Minister! What a dream it was to show the billion plus people. What fantastic ambition! It is possible to get past an unprivileged past and on the basis of hard work and merit, reach the echelons of the nation. It is not impossible; a chaiwallah became Prime Minister; so, what stops any of us from imagining a life better than what fate had bestowed? Narendra Modi’s chaiwallah campaign struck a chord with many. Even dissenters felt such an incredulous journey deserved credit and respect. Fast forward to 2019, we have yet another Lok Sabha polls knocking on our door, and PM Modi has released his latest campaign, ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’. Consider what is wrong with this campaign; there are many. Instead of the chaiwallah story that gave the Indian voter lessons on tenacity and hard work, the chowkidar campaign does quite the opposite. It seems to be encouraging a vigilante mindset among people. If we need vigilantes to uphold the law or clean up corruption, then the government must accept failure of governance. It is urging people to take law into their own hands. Do remember here how cow lynchings are a danger and a menace in today’s India. There are laws in some states to prevent cow slaughter but the goons who beat up and kill people suspected of killing or transporting cows for slaughter, pay scant heed to the law. A campaign like the chowkidar one gives these thugs all around the country licence to attack and assault people believing in some misguided chowkidar ideal. No, I am not a chowkidar. No, I don’t look down upon the profession but I am not a chowkidar because I think even chowkidars do not want to remain just that. I don’t think they want their children to give up on brighter career prospects to become security guards. The chowkidar campaign is not an aspirational one for the new India that BJP trumpets about. The chowkidar campaign is just a clever political drive to stymie the effects of Congress’ ‘Chowkidar Chor Hain’ campaign. As a political ruse, the chowkidar campaign is cunning but as a goal for a new India, it is a poor one reflecting ever so badly on where this country is headed. So much so that even alleged corrupt politicians and sexual predators, are also using the prefix against their Twitter handles with alacrity. In the new India of 2019, we aren’t aspiring to be doctors, scientists, social workers, sportspersons, businessmen…we are being shown the dream to be a chowkidar, a vigilante, and most importantly, to forget asking the only question worth asking in Lok Sabha 2019 — where are the jobs?

London: Arsenal moved into the Premier League top four, but made hard work of seeing off 10-man Watford 1-0 thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s fortunate early opener on Monday. Aubameyang profited from an error by Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster as he blasted an attempted clearance in off the Gabon international. Watford captain Troy Deeney was then shown a straight red card after just 11 minutes, but the Gunners failed to make the most of their man advantage and were fortunate as the hosts twice hit the woodwork. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhHowever, Unai Emery’s men held out for a first clean sheet away from home in the Premier League this season to move ahead of Chelsea on goal difference into fourth. “We didn’t control the match like I wanted,” admitted Emery. “The team was anxious because they could (have) taken some moment. The most important for us is to score the second goal, which we didn’t do.” Arsenal also edge to within a point of north London rivals Tottenham and two clear of Manchester United in the four-way battle for the two remaining Champions League places behind Liverpool and Manchester City. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterFA Cup finalists Watford were already shorn of the man who helped book their place at Wembley against Manchester City next month as Gerard Deulofeu missed out through injury and Javi Gracia’s side did themselves little favours early on. Firstly, Foster dallied as Aubameyang closed in to concede a comical opener. “I’ve said sorry to the lads,” said Foster. “I have tried to drag it on to my left and pass it out but before I knew it he (Aubameyang) was bloody on me. “In hindsight, you have to get rid as quick as you can, even if it goes into row Z. “I am definitely not a modern goalie. They can’t score from row Z.” And within seconds, Deeney was punished for what the referee saw as an elbow into the face of Lucas Torreira. “If it is a foul I have a doubt, maybe a yellow card but (a) red card, I don’t understand why the referee did it,” argued Watford boss Javi Gracia. However, the 10 men were still causing problems to a defensively vulnerable Arsenal at the other end. Craig Cathcart’s shot was turned onto the post by Bernd Leno and the German goalkeeper was also a full stretch to turn an Etienne Capoue free-kick behind. Emery introduced Mesut Ozil at half-time in an attempt to improve Arsenal’s final ball with so much space to counter-attack into, but to little avail. Alex Iwobi looked to have provided the perfect cross to pick out Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Foster made amends for his earlier error by spreading himself to make a brilliant save from the Armenian. Arsenal’s terrible away record is why they face such a tight battle to secure Champions League football next season. And they could have thrown just a second away league win since November away as Adam Masina crashed a 25-yard strike off the crossbar before Andre Gray miscontrolled Daryl Janmaat’s pass when clean through on Leno. Gray was then denied by a last-ditch challenge from Ainsley Maitland-Niles after rounding Leno, but without the firepower of Deulofeu and Deeney, Watford’s brave effort fell just short.
The Briton, a former infection control officer for the ambulance service and a keen amateur photographer, was stopped as he tried to leave Bandaranaike International Airport during a 12-hour stop-over en route from London to Malaysia.Despite having a valid two-day tourist visa, Mr Ratcliffe said he was frogmarched to a detention area after immigration officials spotted the Buddha’s head tattoo poking out from the sleeve of his T-shirt. The authorities are tough on perceived insults to Buddhism – the religion of the island’s majority ethnic Sinhalese. Eventually, Mr Ratcliffe was allowed to continue his journey to Kuala Lumpur, but faced further questioning when he landed.“The whole experience has been a shock – it has been upsetting and a waste of my time. I’m not taking it further, but when I saw they had accused me of speaking disrespectfully about Buddhism, I had to put my side of the story”, he said, the BBC reported.According to the BBC more than 100,000 British citizens visited Sri Lanka in 2012, accounting for 10% of the total number of tourists. The UK is also the country’s second-largest trading partner after India.Last year, three French tourists were given suspended prison sentences for taking photographs that showed them pretending to kiss a statue of Buddha at a temple.In 2010, the American R&B star Akon was refused a visa after protests over one of his music videos, which featured scantily-clad women dancing in front of a statue of Buddha.The UK foreign office offers the following caution for travellers to Sri Lanka: “The mistreatment of Buddhist images and artefacts is a serious offence and tourists have been convicted for this.”It also advises that travellers “don’t pose for photographs by standing in front of a statue of Buddha”. “They took my passport and held me there for an hour and a half. All the time they were bringing people in to look at my arm, and they were shaking their heads. But Mr Ratcliffe says the “inoffensive” body art was meant as a tribute. “As soon as he saw it the chief officer went crazy. You could see it on his face, he looked really angry and said I would have to go back to London,” Mr Ratcliffe told the BBC.An unnamed immigration official told a local newspaper that when questioned about the tattoo, Mr Ratcliffe had spoken “very disrespectfully” about Buddhism.But the Briton says he remained calm throughout the proceedings. “I was explaining my case, pleading basically, and the chief officer just told me to ‘shut up, shut up’ and he refused to talk to me.”“I like the artwork in tattoos obviously and, due to my belief in Buddhist philosophy which I have followed for many years, I thought a quality tattoo of the Buddha was rather apt.“It wasn’t something I took lightly or did on the spur of the moment.” A British tourist is “shocked and upset” after being deported from Sri Lanka for displaying a Buddha tattoo on his arm, the BBC reported.Antony Ratcliffe, 42, from Nottingham, was turned back at Colombo’s main airport on Friday for allegedly showing a lack of respect for Buddhism.
The OMP also briefed the families on the interim report of the OMP, which was released last month. The OMP has recommended in the report that state officials including members of the armed forces and police who are named as suspects or accused in criminal actions relating to abductions and enforced disappearances, be suspended pending the final determination of such cases.In its interim report, the OMP, led by President’s Counsel Saliya Pieris, also recommends that steps be taken to ensure suspected officials are not transferred, promoted or offered any other office in the armed forces, police or the public service while cases against them are pending. (Colombo Gazette) The Office on Missing Persons (OMP) met families from the Western Province in Colombo today and briefed them on the ongoing process to address the issue on people reported missing.The meeting took place at the Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute this afternoon. The OMP heard from the families of the missing and took their suggestions.

But it fell to 8.5 million hectares in 2015 and 8.1 million in 2016, following the crash in world oil prices from over US$100 to under $60 per barrel in 2014.Most of the returned acreage either represents expired or surrendered leases, according to Alberta Energy, which provided the statistics at the request of The Canadian Press.Observers were surprised by the size of the lease returns which they attributed to industry cost-cutting and disinterest in spending to develop new prospects when there’s no money to build projects already on the books.“It costs money to maintain these lands,” said Brad Hayes, president of Petrel Robertson Consulting in Calgary.“You can’t convince shareholders to continue to put that money out if there’s no prospect for success.”Alberta’s oilsands have been getting little respect lately, thanks to the exit of large foreign companies, the province’s hard cap on oilsands emissions, increasing carbon taxes and the stumbling price of crude oil.Its troubles have been welcomed by environmentalists who point out the industry’s outsized impact on air, land and water pollution.“This is good news. It’s a sign that investment dollars are shifting out of carbon-intensive energy,” said Keith Stewart, senior energy strategist with Greenpeace Canada.Energy companies are often very secretive when buying Crown leases, usually acting anonymously through a land broker, and they are almost as secretive when giving up a lease position.Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) reported in disclosure documents that its holdings of oilsands leases fell by 46,000 hectares between 2014 and 2016. But when asked why, spokeswoman Julie Wood said in an email, “We can’t comment on specific dispositions to the Crown or third parties.”Financial considerations, however, were cited in 2015 when junior oilsands company SilverWillow Energy Corp. announced it had returned three leases to the government to avoid $50,000 per year in fees — leases that cost about $2 million to buy at Crown auction in 2011 and were estimated to contain more than 80 million barrels of recoverable bitumen.A few months later, the cash-strapped company, whose stock was worth $90 million in 2012, agreed to sell itself for $1.7 million to another Calgary firm.Alberta Energy spokesman Ryan Cromb said oilsands leases are awarded with an initial 15-year term which can be extended if the company invests, usually by drilling wells or by beginning production. The primary leaseholder is charged rent of $3.50 per hectare, but there’s a rent increase if the lease is extended.The province’s biggest auctions of oilsands leases took place in 2006, when investors paid almost $2 billion to buy 1.5 million hectares at an average price of $1,273 per hectare.In 2016, only 44,000 hectares were sold at just $266 per hectare.Co-owner Darren Rath of Basin Environmental said his consulting company once found plenty of work designing reclamation plans for oilsands exploration programs, but that work has dried up. There were 1,686 oilsands evaluation wells drilled in 2014, but only 387 in 2016, according to Alberta Energy.“Honestly, I don’t expect a ramp up any time soon unless oil prices recover,” Rath said.Rob Bedin, a director with RS Energy Group in Calgary, said many oilsands leases were bought 10 to 15 years ago by speculators who hoped to make a profit by reselling them at a later date.The Alberta oilsands contain an estimated 1.8 trillion barrels of oil, about 168 billion barrels of which are considered recoverable using today’s technology.There are about two dozen operating oilsands projects in Alberta. More than 70 others have regulatory approval, but have not been green-lighted by their proponents.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.

TWO AUSTRALIAN BREWERIES have apologised and withdrawn a beer named which depicted a scene from the Irish Famine on its label.Famine and The Crown caramel chocolate ale was brewed specially for St Patrick’s Day by Willie The Boatman and Shark Island breweries.However, the name and the label caused anger among Irish people at home and abroad, forcing the companies to withdraw the beer and apologise for the offense.Criticism had called the beer “disgusting and offensive” and “an absolute disgrace”.A statement signed from the company’s team and owner Dion Dickinson said:“Firstly, we would like to humbly apologise for the obvious offense it has caused. This truly was not our intention.When we decided to collaborate with Willie The Boatman on a Saint Patrick’s release we were conscious of not delivering a cliché Irish themed beer but wished to express something a little more genuine.“The inspiration for the beer came from the classic Irish song- the Fields Of Athenry, a song that gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.The second verse in particular resonates strongly the strength of the Irish people under extreme adversity, and as an Australian the mention of Botany Bay has always drawn me to the song. It was never our intention to trivialise this terrible piece of history for the sale of a few kegs, but to acknowledge the resilience of the people.“The artwork depicts the scene from the song.“There was no disrespect intended and as soon as we awoke to the legitimately angry, hurt comments we removed the offending title and artwork.“Once again we apologise for the obvious offense and insult we have caused and we hope you can forgive the error and understand it was not made with malice.”The statement was welcomed by the Committee for Commemoration of Irish Famine Victims, who told Irish Central that “anything that educates people on the Great Hunger is to be welcomed, but no-one should attempt to make commercial gain from the suffering of the victims”.Read: Irish farmers want an EU ban on Brazilian meat after the country’s tainted-food scandal 61 Comments

Apple is set to create a brand new London headquarters at Battersea Power Station, it was revealed on 28 September.Roughly 1,400 staff are expected to move into the new Apple campus at the former electricity generator. The site is being restored after more than 30 years of neglect and Apple employees are set to occupy all six floors of office space in the Thames-side location.Apple is set to open the new building in 2021 and it will be one of its biggest headquarters outside of the US. However, Apples main Europe headquarters will remain in Cork, Ireland, where some 4,000 people are employed.A spokesperson for Apple said: This is a great opportunity to have our entire team working and collaborating in one location while supporting the renovation of a neighbourhood rich with history.The move is said to have come as a relief amid concerns about reducing foreign investment in the development zone on Londons south bank. Apple has expressed delight over moving to one of the citys best-known landmarks in a deal which has taken roughly one year to negotiate.Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has also hailed the deal, saying: I am delighted that Apple is moving into Battersea Power Station, helping to generate new jobs and economic prosperity for Londoners. It is a further sign that London is open to the biggest brands in the world and the leading city for trade and investment.Apple will lease roughly 500,000sq ft of office space at Battersea Power Station, almost 40% of the total space within the development. Londoners have been quick to comment on the deal, with Battersea Power Station trending across the city soon after the news broke.IBTimes UK rounds up some of the mixed responses to the new Apple HQ.Excitement… Others were disappointed…Some had other plans for Battersea Power Station… Many were quick to comment on Apples taxes…Some joked about Apples battery life… Brexit was also thrown into the discussion…
Can you believe that it has been over a year since the release of Doom? A new game in the series would have been good enough, but Bethesda delivered one of the best FPS titles in years. I certainly loved it. Now, the game is about to get even better… if not downright irresistible.As detailed on Bethesda’s official blog, the Satanically-named update 6.66 will unlock all of the multiplayer DLC to all players. This includes three multiplayer DLC packs containing nine maps, three additional guns, three additional playable demons, new equipment, armor sets, and more.“With this update, we’ve changed when and how players unlock additional guns, demons, equipment and all of the player and weapon customization options,” reads the blog post. “Instead of relying on the current random unlock system, everything now unlocks through specific leveling requirements and/or in-game challenges. Now, if there’s a specific helmet you want, you can work toward unlocking it by focusing your play style on the related challenge. We’re confident new, and veteran players alike will enjoy the control and predictability in this new multiplayer progression system.”Anyone who hasn’t tried out Doom‘s multiplayer can play for free this weekend. This will begin at 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 20, on Xbox One, 1 pm ET on Thursday, July 20 on PC, and 12:00 pm ET on Thursday, July 27 on PlayStation 4. Users who opt to purchase Doom during the free weekend will retain all of the progress made in campaign and multiplayer.And speaking of buying Doom, it will now be sold for $15. That’s a ridiculously low price for one of 2016’s finest titles. The only drawback with this offer is that it’s only for the digital version of the game. However, that’s only a snag for physical game collectors. Everyone else should definitely nab it if they haven’t already.We have to give Bethesda props for doing all of this. This is a text book example of how to treat fans. Now, if they can hurry up and announce a Doom 2 that would be fantastic.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

An index in Splunk is a storage pool for events, capped by size and time. By default, all events will go to the index specified by defaultDatabase, which is called main but lives in a directory called defaultdb. In this tutorial, we put focus to index structures, need of multiple indexes, how to size an index and how to manage multiple indexes in a Splunk environment. This article is an excerpt from a book written by James D. Miller titled Implementing Splunk 7 – Third Edition. Directory structure of an index Each index occupies a set of directories on the disk. By default, these directories live in $SPLUNK_DB, which, by default, is located in $SPLUNK_HOME/var/lib/splunk. Look at the following stanza for the main index: [main] homePath = $SPLUNK_DB/defaultdb/db coldPath = $SPLUNK_DB/defaultdb/colddb thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB/defaultdb/thaweddb maxHotIdleSecs = 86400 maxHotBuckets = 10 maxDataSize = auto_high_volume If our Splunk installation lives at /opt/splunk, the index main is rooted at the path /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/defaultdb. To change your storage location, either modify the value of SPLUNK_DB in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/splunk-launch.conf or set absolute paths in indexes.conf. splunk-launch.conf cannot be controlled from an app, which means it is easy to forget when adding indexers. For this reason, and for legibility, I would recommend using absolute paths in indexes.conf. The homePath directories contain index-level metadata, hot buckets, and warm buckets. coldPath contains cold buckets, which are simply warm buckets that have aged out. See the upcoming sections The lifecycle of a bucket and Sizing an index for details. When to create more indexes There are several reasons for creating additional indexes. If your needs do not meet one of these requirements, there is no need to create more indexes. In fact, multiple indexes may actually hurt performance if a single query needs to open multiple indexes. Testing data If you do not have a test environment, you can use test indexes for staging new data. This then allows you to easily recover from mistakes by dropping the test index. Since Splunk will run on a desktop, it is probably best to test new configurations locally, if possible. Differing longevity It may be the case that you need more history for some source types than others. The classic example here is security logs, as compared to web access logs. You may need to keep security logs for a year or more, but need the web access logs for only a couple of weeks. If these two source types are left in the same index, security events will be stored in the same buckets as web access logs and will age out together. To split these events up, you need to perform the following steps: Create a new index called security, for instance Define different settings for the security index Update inputs.conf to use the new index for security source types For one year, you might make an indexes.conf setting such as this: [security] homePath = $SPLUNK_DB/security/db coldPath = $SPLUNK_DB/security/colddb thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB/security/thaweddb #one year in seconds frozenTimePeriodInSecs = 31536000 For extra protection, you should also set maxTotalDataSizeMB, and possibly coldToFrozenDir. If you have multiple indexes that should age together, or if you will split homePath and coldPath across devices, you should use volumes. See the upcoming section, Using volumes to manage multiple indexes, for more information. Then, in inputs.conf, you simply need to add an index to the appropriate stanza as follows: [monitor:///path/to/security/logs/logins.log] sourcetype=logins index=security Differing permissions If some data should only be seen by a specific set of users, the most effective way to limit access is to place this data in a different index, and then limit access to that index by using a role. The steps to accomplish this are essentially as follows: Define the new index. Configure inputs.conf or transforms.conf to send these events to the new index. Ensure that the user role does not have access to the new index. Create a new role that has access to the new index. Add specific users to this new role. If you are using LDAP authentication, you will need to map the role to an LDAP group and add users to that LDAP group. To route very specific events to this new index, assuming you created an index called sensitive, you can create a transform as follows: [contains_password] REGEX = (?i)password[=:] DEST_KEY = _MetaData:Index FORMAT = sensitive You would then wire this transform to a particular sourcetype or source index in props.conf. Using more indexes to increase performance Placing different source types in different indexes can help increase performance if those source types are not queried together. The disks will spend less time seeking when accessing the source type in question. If you have access to multiple storage devices, placing indexes on different devices can help increase the performance even more by taking advantage of different hardware for different queries. Likewise, placing homePath and coldPath on different devices can help performance. However, if you regularly run queries that use multiple source types, splitting those source types across indexes may actually hurt performance. For example, let’s imagine you have two source types called web_access and web_error. We have the following line in web_access: 2012-10-19 12:53:20 code=500 session=abcdefg url=/path/to/app And we have the following line in web_error: 2012-10-19 12:53:20 session=abcdefg class=LoginClass If we want to combine these results, we could run a query like the following: (sourcetype=web_access code=500) OR sourcetype=web_error | transaction maxspan=2s session | top url class If web_access and web_error are stored in different indexes, this query will need to access twice as many buckets and will essentially take twice as long. The life cycle of a bucket An index is made up of buckets, which go through a specific life cycle. Each bucket contains events from a particular period of time. The stages of this lifecycle are hot, warm, cold, frozen, and thawed. The only practical difference between hot and other buckets is that a hot bucket is being written to, and has not necessarily been optimized. These stages live in different places on the disk and are controlled by different settings in indexes.conf: homePath contains as many hot buckets as the integer value of maxHotBuckets, and as many warm buckets as the integer value of maxWarmDBCount. When a hot bucket rolls, it becomes a warm bucket. When there are too many warm buckets, the oldest warm bucket becomes a cold bucket. Do not set maxHotBuckets too low. If your data is not parsing perfectly, dates that parse incorrectly will produce buckets with very large time spans. As more buckets are created, these buckets will overlap, which means all buckets will have to be queried every time, and performance will suffer dramatically. A value of five or more is safe. coldPath contains cold buckets, which are warm buckets that have rolled out of homePath once there are more warm buckets than the value of maxWarmDBCount. If coldPath is on the same device, only a move is required; otherwise, a copy is required. Once the values of frozenTimePeriodInSecs, maxTotalDataSizeMB, or maxVolumeDataSizeMB are reached, the oldest bucket will be frozen. By default, frozen means deleted. You can change this behavior by specifying either of the following: coldToFrozenDir: This lets you specify a location to move the buckets once they have aged out. The index files will be deleted, and only the compressed raw data will be kept. This essentially cuts the disk usage by half. This location is unmanaged, so it is up to you to watch your disk usage. coldToFrozenScript: This lets you specify a script to perform some action when the bucket is frozen. The script is handed the path to the bucket that is about to be frozen. thawedPath can contain buckets that have been restored. These buckets are not managed by Splunk and are not included in all time searches. To search these buckets, their time range must be included explicitly in your search. I have never actually used this directory. Search https://splunk.com for restore archived to learn the procedures. Sizing an index To estimate how much disk space is needed for an index, use the following formula: (gigabytes per day) * .5 * (days of retention desired) Likewise, to determine how many days you can store an index, the formula is essentially: (device size in gigabytes) / ( (gigabytes per day) * .5 ) The .5 represents a conservative compression ratio. The log data itself is usually compressed to 10 percent of its original size. The index files necessary to speed up search brings the size of a bucket closer to 50 percent of the original size, though it is usually smaller than this. If you plan to split your buckets across devices, the math gets more complicated unless you use volumes. Without using volumes, the math is as follows: homePath = (maxWarmDBCount + maxHotBuckets) * maxDataSize coldPath = maxTotalDataSizeMB – homePath For example, say we are given these settings: [myindex] homePath = /splunkdata_home/myindex/db coldPath = /splunkdata_cold/myindex/colddb thawedPath = /splunkdata_cold/myindex/thaweddb maxWarmDBCount = 50 maxHotBuckets = 6 maxDataSize = auto_high_volume #10GB on 64-bit systems maxTotalDataSizeMB = 2000000 Filling in the preceding formula, we get these values: homePath = (50 warm + 6 hot) * 10240 MB = 573440 MB coldPath = 2000000 MB – homePath = 1426560 MB If we use volumes, this gets simpler and we can simply set the volume sizes to our available space and let Splunk do the math. Using volumes to manage multiple indexes Volumes combine pools of storage across different indexes so that they age out together. Let’s make up a scenario where we have five indexes and three storage devices. The indexes are as follows: Name Data per day Retention required Storage needed web 50 GB no requirement ? security 1 GB 2 years 730 GB * 50 percent app 10 GB no requirement ? chat 2 GB 2 years 1,460 GB * 50 percent web_summary 1 GB 1 years 365 GB * 50 percent Now let’s say we have three storage devices to work with, mentioned in the following table: Name Size small_fast 500 GB big_fast 1,000 GB big_slow 5,000 GB We can create volumes based on the retention time needed. Security and chat share the same retention requirements, so we can place them in the same volumes. We want our hot buckets on our fast devices, so let’s start there with the following configuration: [volume:two_year_home] #security and chat home storage path = /small_fast/two_year_home maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 300000 [volume:one_year_home] #web_summary home storage path = /small_fast/one_year_home maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 150000 For the rest of the space needed by these indexes, we will create companion volume definitions on big_slow, as follows: [volume:two_year_cold] #security and chat cold storage path = /big_slow/two_year_cold maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 850000 #([security]+[chat])*1024 – 300000 [volume:one_year_cold] #web_summary cold storage path = /big_slow/one_year_cold maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 230000 #[web_summary]*1024 – 150000 Now for our remaining indexes, whose timeframe is not important, we will use big_fast and the remainder of big_slow, like so: [volume:large_home] #web and app home storage path = /big_fast/large_home maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 900000 #leaving 10% for pad [volume:large_cold] #web and app cold storage path = /big_slow/large_cold maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 3700000 #(big_slow – two_year_cold – one_year_cold)*.9 Given that the sum of large_home and large_cold is 4,600,000 MB, and a combined daily volume of web and app is 60,000 MB approximately, we should retain approximately 153 days of web and app logs with 50 percent compression. In reality, the number of days retained will probably be larger. With our volumes defined, we now have to reference them in our index definitions: [web] homePath = volume:large_home/web coldPath = volume:large_cold/web thawedPath = /big_slow/thawed/web [security] homePath = volume:two_year_home/security coldPath = volume:two_year_cold/security thawedPath = /big_slow/thawed/security coldToFrozenDir = /big_slow/frozen/security [app] homePath = volume:large_home/app coldPath = volume:large_cold/app thawedPath = /big_slow/thawed/app [chat] homePath = volume:two_year_home/chat coldPath = volume:two_year_cold/chat thawedPath = /big_slow/thawed/chat coldToFrozenDir = /big_slow/frozen/chat [web_summary] homePath = volume:one_year_home/web_summary coldPath = volume:one_year_cold/web_summary thawedPath = /big_slow/thawed/web_summary thawedPath cannot be defined using a volume and must be specified for Splunk to start. For extra protection, we specified coldToFrozenDir for the indexes’ security and chat. The buckets for these indexes will be copied to this directory before deletion, but it is up to us to make sure that the disk does not fill up. If we allow the disk to fill up, Splunk will stop indexing until space is made available. This is just one approach to using volumes. You could overlap in any way that makes sense to you, as long as you understand that the oldest bucket in a volume will be frozen first, no matter what index put the bucket in that volume. With this, we learned to operate multiple indexes and how we can get effective business intelligence out of the data without hurting system performance.

Soshnikov, a reporter at the weekly Moi Rayon, or My Region, said there has been a new push in recent months to hire more English-speaking trolls as part of an effort to sway public opinion in the United States.“All of a sudden, (they) switch on Russia Today and realize that this is a holy land, Obama is a bloody dictator and true freedom of speech exists only in Russia.”In Serbia, trolls are recruited through several small right-wing parties that are both financially and politically supported by Russia, media analysts say.When Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov was killed in Moscow in late February, the Serbian trolls were quick to react. “Who is to gain from this assassination but America? It must have been CIA,” was the dominant mantra that took hold in discussions on Serbian news sites. “Likes” went into the hundreds, while comments such as “Putin is responsible” received widespread ridicule.Serbs receive most of their information about Russia from Moscow-backed media, and the trolls reinforce the Kremlin line. The result is a widespread view in Serbia that the Kiev regime is neo-Nazi and that Putin was right to annex Crimea. Comments Share The Kremlin has always dabbled in propaganda, but in the past year its troll campaign has gone into overdrive, adding hundreds of online operatives to help counter Western pressure over its role in the pro-Russian insurgency in eastern Ukraine. The program is drawing Serbia away from its proclaimed EU membership path and closer to the Russian orbit, and is targeting Germany, the United States and other Western powers. The operation has worried the European Union enough to prompt it to draw up a blueprint for fighting Russia’s disinformation campaign, although details have not yet been released.Lyuda Savchuk, a single mother with two children, worked in the St. Petersburg “troll factory” until mid-March. The 34-year-old journalist said she had some idea of the Orwellian universe she was entering when she took the job, but underestimated its intensity and scope.“I knew it was something bad, but of course I never suspected that it was this horrible and this large-scale,” she said in an interview in her apartment, which has colorful drawings on the walls for her two preschool-age children.She described how the trolls manage several social media accounts under different nicknames, such as koka-kola23, green_margo and Funornotfun. Those in her department had to bash out 160 blog posts during a 12-hour shift. Trolls in other departments flooded the Internet with doctored images and pro-Putin commentary on news stories that crop up on Russian and Western news portals. Top Stories New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober “One of the consequences is the fact that popular support for the EU integration has dropped below 50 percent for the first time since democratic change in Serbia in 2000,” said Jelena Milic, a political analyst at the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies, in Belgrade. “It is going to be very hard to recover this public support.”In Germany, the foreign ministry has tried to counter the propaganda by issuing a memo to its diplomats on how to debunk some of the standard Russian arguments about the Ukraine conflict.For instance, the memo answers the statement that “fascists are in power in Kiev” by noting that radical and far-right groups made up only a small proportion of the demonstrators who ousted the Russia-friendly president, and that far-right parties did very poorly in subsequent parliamentary and presidential elections._____Dusan Stojanovic in Belgrade, Serbia and Frank Jordans in Berlin contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.

(AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky) New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies In some departments, she said, the trolls receive daily talking points on what to write and what emotions to evoke. “It seems to me that they don’t know what they are doing,” Savchuk said. “They simply repeat what they are told.”She said most of the trolls are young and are attracted by relatively high monthly salaries of 40,000 to 50,000 rubles ($800 to $1,000).Her descriptions of the work coincide with those of other former trolls who have spoken publicly, although Savchuk is one of the few willing to have her full name published. She quit after a little more than two months, after finding she couldn’t stand being part of a propaganda machine.The trolls are employed by Internet Research, which Russian news reports say is financed by a holding company headed by Putin’s friend and personal chef. Those who have worked there say they have little doubt that the operation is run from the Kremlin.St. Petersburg journalist Andrei Soshnikov, who was one of the first to report on the “troll factory,” said about 400 people work in the building. A video he posted on YouTube this spring gave a rare glimpse inside the building; in one room trolls were shown sitting shoulder-to-shoulder at their computers. The operation moved into the building when it expanded in March 2014, the month Russia seized Crimea from Ukraine and provoked the first round of Western economic sanctions. ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — Deep inside a four-story marble building in St. Petersburg, hundreds of workers tap away at computers on the front lines of an information war, say those who have been inside. Known as “Kremlin trolls,” the men and women work 12-hour shifts around the clock, flooding the Internet with propaganda aimed at stamping President Vladimir Putin’s world vision on Russia, and the world.

Google has launched a new airline schedule feature named ‘flight search’ it is the company’s first travel product since its USD700 million acquisition of ITA software this year.In a Google blog post the internet giant advised that their engineering departments have been working carefully to develop new travel tools that offer faster, more flexible and more productive results to online travel searches.A “flight” link appears on the left side that leads to the new Flight Search feature, the user types in a query for flight information and obtains access to flight options for a selected destination organised by departure time and date, airport, price and airline.The feature is currently limited to some US cities and shows results for round-trip economy-class flights only, however Google has advised that they will be adding more cities and options soon.In a Google blog post the company said that the selection of flight results is not influenced by any paid relationships.“Airlines control how their flights are marketed, so as with other flight search providers, our booking links point to airline websites only.”Some online travel sites had tried to block the Google ITA deal saying it will provide Google control over the online travel market and could lead to a rise in prices.
