  4. Are you scheduling old exam or new one? which ever it is, stick to its contents and you should be fine. I have scheduled mine for old exam and consolidated I passed topic in this board gives a good idea about exam experience. D
  5. I passed my exam in Friday with 74%. Exam questions were not tough but bit lengthy. I was on question 23 with half time and that really build preassure but i was lucky enough to just pass the exam. I used course of linxacademy.com and also the posts in consolidated section of this club quite helped me with getting my head around exam with users experience. A tip, don't spend time on questions you dont understand or need some extra time to get that right, mark it for review and move on. In my exam i wasted a lot of time on few questions in first half of exam and in second half questions were comparatively easy and i nearly missed them as I was really struggling with time. Next on, SysOps administrator. Joining the club

  11. Hi james Amazon EC2 instance comes with EBS (Elastic Block Store) volume. There are 3 types of EBS available, Magnetic General Purpose (SSD) Provisioned IOPS (SSD) Magnetic - Slowest/cheapest magnetic disk backed storage SSD - Faster/more expensive solid state backed storage "Provisioned IOPS" - FastEST/most expensive and guaranteed speed of input/output operations per second.
  12. Hey hasmn, In short yes, but if this uptime report is to calculate your monthly billing. you can use Amazon S3 bucket for this feature. It will send you the detailed billing report for every few hours in a CSV file format. You can refer the below link for further details. http://docs.aws.amazon.com/awsaccountbilling/latest/aboutv2/billing-reports.html
  13. Hi robert, There might be many reasons behind this, but first, have you allowed ICMP in firewall rule? If not, you can do that by following the below step, to Add a new EC2 security group inbound rule: type: Custom ICMP rule protocol: Echo Request port: N/A source: your source machine IP or use Anywhere for public access.
  14. A fix for this problem is to add swap or paging space to the instance. Paging works by creating an area on your hard drive and using it for extra memory, this memory is much slower than normal memory however much more of it is available. To add this extra space to your instance you type: sudo /bin/dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/swap.1 bs=1M count=1024 sudo /sbin/mkswap /var/swap.1 sudo chmod 600 /var/swap.1 sudo /sbin/swapon /var/swap.1 If you need more than 1024 then change that to something higher. To enable it by default after reboot, add this line to /etc/fstab: swap /var/swap.1 swap defaults 0 0
  15. hi there, just came across to this forum and though might ask a confusion rather than issue. We have our website setup by AWS contractor and thing seems to work fine. But recently we came across an issue that our web server does not reply to ping however we haven't got any issues reported to our website. Can anyone suggest
  16. I’m currently running an ec2 micro instance and i’ve been finding that the instance occasionally runs out of memory.
  17. hi How do I find out the total running running time of my instance for a month through my ruby code. Do Amazon allow api requests for this?
  18. Hey ther, I could see there are different types of storage/disks available in AWS. I am not sure to select the correct one for my requirement, is there any difference between these types and does it vary according to the size of the instance I need?
  19. sorry, here is the log exception in thread “main” com.amazonaws.AmazonClientException: Unable to load AWS credentials from any provider in the chain at com.amazonaws.auth.AWSCredentialsProviderChain.getCredentials(AWSCredentialsProviderChain.java:117) at com.amazonaws.services.opsworks.AWSOpsWorksClient.invoke(AWSOpsWorksClient.java:3574) at com.amazonaws.services.opsworks.AWSOpsWorksClient.createInstance(AWSOpsWorksClient.java:2098) at AwsConsoleApp.main(AwsConsoleApp.java:154)
  20. hello forum, I’m trying to create a new instance from my code and I am getting the below error in the log. Any help…
