heartbleed centOS6.5

Wondering if NSA already knew about heartbleed and was cracking google and FB and other servers so far.

now that its out people are rushing to fix it and we are also.

I saw a great into to heartbleed at http://vimeo.com/91425662

so if you run this it would tell you what version of openssl nginx is using
ldd `which nginx` | grep ssl
        libssl.so.10 => /usr/lib64/libssl.so.10 (0x00007f6d0c0cf000) 


and now if you do this it would tell you if you are vulnerable 
strings /usr/lib64/libssl.so.10 | grep "^OpenSSL "
OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013


if you have anything between 1.0.1. and 1.0.1f you are vulnerable, perconna guys have a nice post on same http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2014/04/08/openssl-heartbleed-cve-2014-0160/

CentOS has released patch to current stable release and to fix all you need to do is update centOS or recompile nginx and disable heartbleed.

to update centOS  run "sudo yum update openssl" and restart services using openssl like nginx,mysql,apache.

to verify if its fixed run

Logging to Graphite monitoring tool from java

We use Graphite as a tool for monitoring some stats and watch trends. A requirement is to monitor impact of new releases as build is deployed to app nodes to see if things like
1) Has the memcache usage increased.
2) Has the no of Java exceptions went up.
3) Is the app using more tomcat threads.
Here is a screenshot

We changed the installer to log a deploy event when a new build is deployed. I wrote a simple spring bean to log graphite events using java. Logging to graphite is easy, all you need to do is open a socket and send lines of events.
import org.slf4j.Logger;import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory; import java.io.OutputStreamWriter; import java.io.Writer; import java.net.Socket; import java.util.HashMap; import java.util.Map; public class GraphiteLogger { private static final Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(GraphiteLogger.class); private String graphiteHost; private int graphitePort; public String getGraphiteHost() { return graphiteHost; } public void setGraphite…

Jersey posting multipart data

This took me sometime to figure out mostly it was because I was only including jersey-multipart-1.6.jar but I was not including mimepull-1.3.jar.

So the intent is to upload a file using REST api and we need pass meta attributes in addition to uploading the file. Also the intent is to stream the file instead of first storing it on the local disk. Here is some sample code.
@Path("/upload-service") public class UploadService { @Context protected HttpServletResponse response; @Context protected HttpServletRequest request; @POST @Consumes(MediaType.MULTIPART_FORM_DATA) @Produces(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON) public String uploadFile(@PathParam("fileName") final String fileName, @FormDataParam("workgroupId") String workgroupId, @FormDataParam("userId") final int userId, @FormDataParam("content") final InputStream content) throws JSONException { //.......Upload the file to S3 or netapp or any storage service } }
Now to tes…
