in reply to Capturing IP Address from a CGI script

You can get the sending hostname ( or IP if the hostname is unavailable ) via $cgi->remote_host() and then log it to a file or store it however you want.

[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
[oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
[Corion]: For benign logging (which user started this DB instance), it's OK
