General Vagrant configuration for berkshelf cookbooks that works with chef-solo or chef-client and grabs chef-client information from knife.rb.
View AAA-usage.txt
Gem versions are important due to dependency pinning problems w/ Berkshelf, Chef, and Vagrant
circa March 15th, 2013.
The older version of chef won't impact the version of chef that gets provisioned on your vagrant
box, it's just for loading the knife.rb configuration.
Use bundle exec if you want these things to operate together correctly.
$ bundle exec vagrant up solo
$ bundle exec berks upload

Mount apt cache of a Vagrant box in the host to spin up the packages installation
View gist:3797297

This is a little trick I use to spin up the packages instalation on Debian/Ubuntu boxes in Vagrant.

I add a simple function that checks if a directory named something similar to ~/.vagrant.d/cache/apt/opscode-ubuntu-12.04/partial (it may have another path in Windows or MacOS) and create the directory if it doesn't already exist.

def local_cache(basebox_name)
  cache_dir ='cache', 'apt', basebox_name)
  partial_dir = cache_dir.join('partial')
  partial_dir.mkdir unless partial_dir.exist?

parsing mysql's bullshit query log format with logstash

parsing mysql query logs with logstash

The problem is that some lines in the file are missing timestamps when they aren't continuations of any previous line. It's dumb, really.

The mysql query log is seriously bullshit format, but nothing logstash can't unscrew.

The main goal here is to show how we can fix the 'missing timestamp' problem.
