used by several systems on Linux such as the kernel, GRUB 2, rsyslog, and more Via modules, Linux components can be extended easily, and adding functionality does not require a total rewrite of the software Mount To access files on specific storage devices, the storage device needs to be mounted on a directory This sets up the specified directory as the access point to files on the storage device Mounts are typically organized by the systems administrator and are not visible to end users Mount map file In automount, the file that defines the file systems that need to be mounted and maps them to the mount points MTA See message transfer agent MUA See message user agent Multipath In SAN environment, it is important that redundancy is provided to access storage devices The result is that the same storage device may be seen twice, which makes it unclear to the client which storage device it needs to connect to To fix this problem, a multipath driver can be used This driver will present one uniform multipath device, and from this device access to the specific backing device is regulated Multipliers In regular expressions, a character that indicates that multiple of the previous character are referred to N Name server In DNS, the name server is the server that is configured with a database that contains resource records that are used to answer to the DNS queries NAT

network NTP on RHEL is implemented by the chronyd service NFS See Network File System nice A method to change the priority of Linux processes A negative nice value will make the process more aggressive, giving it a higher priority (which is expressed by a lower priority number!); a positive nice value will make a process less eager so that it gives priority to other processes NIS See Network Information System nslcd The legacy backend service that is used on an LDAP client NTP See Network Time Protocol Null client In email, refers to a mail client where an SMTP service such as

From the Library of Outcast Outcast 20 Red Hat RHCSA/RHCE Cert Guide Port forwarding A firewalling technique where traffic that is coming in on a specific port is forwarded to another port which may be on the same host and on a different host Portmap The portmapper is a remote procedure call service that needs to run on systems that provide RPC services Portmapper uses dynamic ports that not correspond to specific TCP or UDP ports; the service will pick a UDP or TCP port that will be used as long as the process is active When restarted, chances are that different ports are used They need to be mapped to fixed UDP and TCP ports in order to make it possible to open the firewall for these ports Portmapper is still used by components of the NFS service Portal In iSCSI, a portal is the IP address and ports on which iSCSI target services are available POSIX See Portable Operating System Interface Primary In DNS, the primary name server that is responsible for the resource records in the

interface is available through the /proc file system From the Library of Outcast Outcast Glossary 21 Process A task that is running on a Linux machine Roughly, a process corresponds to a program, although one program can start multiple processes Process identification number A unique number that is used to identify a process running on a Linux system Protocol A set of rules that is used in computing, for instance in computer networking to establish communications between two computers Pseudo Root File System In NFSv4, refers to a solution where multiple shares are exported by an NFS server Instead of mounting each individual share, the NFS client mounts the root file system on the NFS server, which gives access to all shares he is entitled to Pseudo root mount In NFSv4, a mount of the root directory system or another high-level directory that hasn’t been specifically exported by the NFS server, but which gives access to all exported file systems where the client has access

computers motherboard as well Regular expression A search pattern that allows users to search text patterns in a flexible way Not to be confused with shell metacharacters Relative file name directory A file name that is relative to a directory that is not the root Relay host In email traffic, a relay host is a host that messages are forwarded to Relay hosts are used to prevent all clients from having to send out messages for themselves The advantage of using relay hosts is that it is much easier to secure them because security efforts can be focused on one or a limited amount of hosts Remote Procedure Calls A method for interprocess communication that allows a program to execute code in another address space Remote Procedure Calls is an old protocol and as such is still used in the Network File System Repository An installation source that contains installable packages and an index that contains information about the installable packages so that the installation program yum can

software bridge (which is like a network switch) that is used mostly in virtual environments to allow multiple hosts to access the same network interface Virtual host In the Apache web server, a virtual host is a collection of configuration settings that is used to address a web server What makes it a virtual host is that one installation of the Apache web server can be configured with multiple virtual hosts, which allows administrators to run multiple websites on one Apache server Virtual memory The total amount of addressable memory Virtual memory is called virtual memory because it does not refer to memory that really exists Its only purpose is to make sure that Linux programs can set an address pointer that is unique and not in use by other programs Volume group The
