    Solved Laundry Memory, Jails, and Thrashing

    Good Morning All, I have been experiencing some mysterious thrashes on one of my servers, and I have finally gathered enough data about the problem to possibly ask for help (it was very difficult to get data since once it started thrashing there was nothing to be done except reboot...). The...

    Solved Giving jails network access through host's IP

    IPFW authpf alternative?

    I have a use case for authpf. However, I'd prefer to stick with IPFW as it seems to be more maintained and more recent than the included PF version. However, I've been unable to locate an alternate option that'll work with IPFW. Maybe I'm missing something, or maybe there's another way...

    change the default shell for jexec

    Hi, I recently changed the default shell of one of my servers to zsh, since I'm lazy I used to type jexec <jailname> to jump inside a jail. After I switched to zsh, I get an error because zsh is not installed inside the jails. I know that I can use jexec <jailname> /bin/csh, but since I'm...

    Automating Headless Firefox with XVFB in Jails without login

    Hello all, I am trying to make use of the jails to run instances of a selenium/firefox app. To make Firefox run "headlessly", I am using XVFB (yes I do know that PhantomJS exists.

    Solved Jail IP configuration

    I've been diving into jails lately and I'm scratching my head. In terms of pure configuration of jail.conf I have no real questions. However in terms of IP usage and interface allocation I have a few. I have read many threads about jails and have seen 2 approaches most widely used: 1) Jail IP...

    How to configure IP address in jails for a machine without network card.

    Normally, we have to put the network interface (e.g. em0 or igb0) when setting up jails. For example: jail_jailname_ip="" jail_jailname_interface="igb0" If the network interface (physical card) is being sent as pass-thru via bhyve to a virtualized operating system running within...

    nfs server within jail

    Is this possible? I have seen older threads stating this is not possible. But I think it might have to do with older versions... do I need to explicitly disable nfs and rpc on the host?

    Simulating WLAN-Mesh (802.11s) with Jails

    Hi, I want to simulate at least 100 nodes of an 802.11s network, but each of the nodes has to run some java code. The java code reads from the routing tables. The packages between the nodes as well as the network interfaces should be simulated. Is FreeBSD/Jails a reasonable choice? Could a...
