Know when and who is doing ssh

I would like to know if someone is using the ssh on my servers. That’s why I have put a telegram notification. Here is how it works

Put in ssh/sshrc


telegram-send -g "Access $SSH_TTY $SSH_CONNECTION `id`" &

Of course you need to setup your telegram-send

Compare two filesystems

Lets run those command on the machines

New instanceOld instance
find / -xdev | sort > new.txt find / -xdev | sort > old.txt

Pull the files locally

scp -i ~/.ssh/somekey [email protected]:/new.txt  /tmp/new.txt
scp -i ~/.ssh/somekey [email protected]:/old.txt  /tmp/old.txt

Then use this great delta tool to compare the files

delta -s /tmp/new.txt /tmp/old.txt

Using md5 sums

And a using md5 sums – this is slow!

# On the new instance

find / -xdev -type f -exec  md5sum {} \; > new-files.txt
find / -xdev -type d | sort >
sort  -k2  new-files > 

# On the old instance

find / -xdev -type f -exec  md5sum {} \; > old-files.txt
find / -xdev -type d | sort > sorted.old-folders.txt
sort  -k2  old-files >sorted.old-files.txt

0 5 * * * /usr/bin/sftp -b [email protected]

I recommend using systemd so that you can have logs

Where is more clear to do line break

We are migrating from Cloudflare to route53 and want to make sure that all the records are migrated correctly.

records = %w(

records.each do |record|
  aws = `dig +noall +answer |tr '\t' ' ' | cut -d' ' -f1,3,4,5`
  cf = `dig +noall +answer @|tr '\t' ' ' | cut -d' ' -f1,3,4,5`

  if aws != cf
