I am back with a linux post as was hell occupied with work. I am sharing a simple story where I had a bottleneck of knowing some processes which were up and running for how much time. This helps in monitoring purposes and many of you might be knowing about it but I thought worth sharing. There was one java process which got killed and was restarted this gave me a ticket to debug further and then got to know that we have a command to know how much time the specific process was up and running.
First identify the process id of your process with it’s name.
#ps -ef |grep httpd
identify the pid no from the above command.
#ps -eo pidno,etime
50:08 elasped time
Here elapsed time shows that the process apache(httpd) was up and running from 50 minutes 8 seconds.
It has been great to be back to blog again after a while. Ofcourse this post is not technicalbut related to my new webseries which has action,romance,adventure,thrills and what not. Please see the first promo flyer. I am playing Luv Singh a dashing business tycoon. All episodes on Diwali. So please share,love and subscribe. On every view 2rs would be utiilzed for cancer patients and other noble causes from our production team. Enjoy & Cheers
I have been asked questions that is there an alternative for SSL certificates. Well it’s nice to have one i.e LetsEncrypt which gives you free SSL for atleast 90 days on your registered domain. Not only this you can use this certificate on Amazon Web Services Load Balancer and also on MS Azure cloud portals.
I personally have tried it and you can use the certbot utility to generate certificates for your domain. Not only certbot command lets you generate certificates but also helps you to auto deploy it with nginx/apache webservers too without any hiccups also firing a rewrite rule for redirecting traffic from http to https too.
On the renewal date certbot renew can be used to renew your domain SSL Certificates too.
To understand and implement LetsEncrypt for say your wordpress site you can use the following link :-
Thanks for loving Johnny webseries on my youtube channel. I am back with a flyer song for the same. Every view counts the sponsors would give 2Rs view to cancer patients. One more great news is that some action sequences requiring special effects and VFX would be done on linux high end machines.

It has been long time I didn’t shoot any album after 31st Dec, after daughters are blessings. So kind of tie up with various ngo’s for social causes I decided to entertain the audience and people with every view on my latest album urvashi going for social causes like cancer,old age homes, handicapped people etc. I am aossociated with milaap.org and run various campaigns locally and online for crowdfunding for the people. Some of the campaigns I have run are
I also run local campaigns in Vadodara Gujarat for various social causes and also social awareness programmes on cancer,diabetes,heart attack causes etc. So very view counts for us and we would give 2Rs per view on this album with tie up with various contributors & sponsors for social causes. We would also post pics & video for the donation given from the album as well. So please do watch,share & subscribe on Alok Thaker youtube channel or Alok Film Production Youtube channel.
Long time I haven’t been blogging for while as been busy with loads of work stuff. So today’s topic I am going to cover is CICD(Continuous Integration,Continuous Delivery & Continuous Deployment) using open source tools for Linux.
Best tools for CICD is apache jenkins,Team City,Gitlab CI,Drone etc. I personally prefer jenkins over all because it gives loads of flexibility for a devops guy to build,automate and deploy making it the most suitable.
Few Posts which I found useful to start for me with jenkins are as follows :-
