Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Hello. I'm new here and i'm new to slack (concept) as well.

pppoe-relay - user-space PPPoE relay agent.
pppoe-relay [options]
pppoe-relay is a user-space relay agent for PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) for Linux. pppoe-relay works in concert with the pppoe client and pppoe-server server. See the OPERATION section later in this manual for details on how pppoe-relay works.
-S interface Adds the Ethernet interface interface to the list of interfaces managed by pppoe-relay. Only PPPoE servers may be connected to this interface. -C interface Adds the Ethernet interface interface to the list of interfaces managed by pppoe-relay. Only PPPoE clients may be connected to this interface. -B interface Adds the Ethernet interface interface to the list of interfaces managed by pppoe-relay. Both PPPoE clients and servers may be con- nected to this interface. -n num Allows at most num concurrent PPPoE sessions. If not specified, the default is 5000. num can range from 1 to 65534. -i timeout Specifies the session idle timeout. If both peers in a session are idle for more than timeout seconds, the session is terminated. If timeout is specified as zero, sessions will never be terminated because of idleness. Note that the idle-session expiry routine is never run more frequently than every 30 seconds, so the timeout is approximate. The default value for timeout is 600 seconds (10 minutes.) -F The -F option causes pppoe-relay not to fork into the background; instead, it remains in the foreground. -h The -h option prints a brief usage message and exits.
pppoe-relay listens for incoming PPPoE PADI frames on all interfaces specified with -B or -C options. When a PADI frame appears, pppoe- relay adds a Relay-Session-ID tag and broadcasts the PADI on all interfaces specified with -B or -S options (except the interface on which the frame arrived.) Any PADO frames received are relayed back to the client which sent the PADI (assuming they contain valid Relay-Session-ID tags.) Likewise, PADR frames from clients are relayed back to the matching access concentrator. When a PADS frame is received, pppoe-relay enters the two peers' MAC addresses and session-ID's into a hash table. (The session-ID seen by the access concentrator may be different from that seen by the client; pppoe-relay must renumber sessions to avoid the possibility of duplicate session-ID's.) Whenever either peer sends a session frame, pppoe-relay looks up the session entry in the hash table and relays the frame to the correct peer. When a PADT frame is received, pppoe-relay relays it to the peer and deletes the session entry from its hash table. If a client and server crash (or frames are lost), PADT frames may never be sent, and pppoe-relay's hash table can fill up with stale ses- sions. Therefore, a session-cleaning routine runs periodically, and removes old sessions from the hash table. A session is considered "old" if no traffic has been seen within timeout seconds. When a session is deleted because of a timeout, a PADT frame is sent to each peer to make certain that they are aware the session has been killed.
pppoe-relay -C eth0 -S eth1 The example above relays frames between PPPoE clients on the eth0 network and PPPoE servers on the eth1 network. pppoe-relay -B eth0 -B eth1 This example is a transparent relay -- frames are relayed between any mix of clients and servers on the eth0 and eth1 networks. pppoe-relay -S eth0 -C eth1 -C eth2 -C eth3 This example relays frames between servers on the eth0 network and clients on the eth1, eth2 and eth3 networks.
