For the S4x19 competition, I needed a simple script to go through several hundred GB of pcaps and dump out a list of IP and MAC address pairings to prepare elements for the challenge. Here is a simple BASH script that can achieve that simply with tshark (sudo apt-get install tshark):
A few observations about looking at TOP that I hear people asking are regarding what does the % mean, and why can I have over 100% when looking at CPU usage.
Well, its sort of simple. Load averages are the average of the load number for a process in a given period of time. A load number is merely a metric that is an average that takes into account CPU usage (or consumed time-slices) by the process. These could be:
# @file statistics.sh

# @date Jan 2017
# @purpose Collect network interface statistics and other information and output

Here is a simple BASH script to bring down/up an interface randomly. Note there is no error checking or states... it will work if it can work. e.g if the interface is up, and the script calls up - it will be up.
While scouting about looking for information about the FriendlyArm's NanoPC-T2 GPIO pins and using some of their source - I noticed that the documentation regarding how to setup an LED for example was missing from their forums etc... Here is a quick example:
Recently went to setup a reverse SSH tunnel and had a few issues such as connections not being allowed, or otherwise. There is also a strong gotcha not documented clearly on the Internet, you can only have one connection per port on the intermediary host. If you want more than one host, you need to use multiple ports; sorry this is the way it is.
Before starting, make sure on BOTH hosts, install:
