Collection of stuff that I wish to store for future uses and also content which is so small that donot deserve a separate blogpost

Ubuntu Network Configuration

I run ubuntu machines in VMWare and many times the VM fails to resume for god knows what reasons.Worst if i ever manage to get it started the networking configuration is erased. Hence saving below configurations for future.

General Way

cat /etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
        gateway XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
sudo service network-manager restart

Using Netplan

Prerrably if your using Ubuntu 20

cat /etc/netplan/01-network-manager-all.yaml
    version: 2
    renderer: networkd
         dhcp4: yes
          addresses: [,]
sudo netplan try
sudo netplan apply
sudo service network-manager restart

System Load Monitor

Configuration settings for using System Load Monitor in Ubuntu. Looks something like below

Updating Indicator Items

CPU - $(percent(cpu.inuse)) | RAM - $(size(mem.user)) | Net ↓ $(speed(net.down)) ↑ $(speed(net.up))
