Charges for name or date of birth change, in the Maharashtra Government Gazette:
INR 120.00 per insertion (for two copies of the Gazette)
For backward class applicants: INR 60.00
Charges for extra copy of the Gazette: INR 15.00 per copy (two copies are enough, so you may not want to pay extra for extra copies).

Backward class applicants are required to submit a xerox of caste certificate of old name as issued by the Collector of the District concerned.

Once the form is duly submitted, it normally takes 10 to 15 days for publication of advertisement in the Maharashtra Government Gazette. The Gazette copy reaches to the address filled in the form within next 7 to 15 days.

Dear Sir,
I had received the Maharashtra Shasan Rajpatra on 07th Dec 2011 at 7:00pm through my colleague Mrs. Jyoti. Sorry to say there is an error in the spelling of my surname IT IS MENTIONED THADAMI INSTEAD OF THADANI.
Sir please let me know what the procedure is because the error is from not my end, as I had submitted my leaving certificate and passport Xerox copies.
I had submitted my form through my colleague, along with my Xerox copy of my passport and school leaving certificate and I had paid Rs 120/-, Receipt No: 003013 Dated 21/10/2011. Sorry to say I had requested my colleague to give me all the Xerox copy of the forms which she has submitted to you but accidently she forgot to take the Xerox copies.
Sir my request to you is that is it possible to give me all the Xerox copies of the forms and details which she has submitted to you, I’m ready to pay all the necessity charges as required by you.
I would request you to please do the said needful as earliest as possible.
Thanking you.

Hi Rahul,

I need to change MY name on my DAUGHTER'S birth certificate. When she was born I was on bed rest and I had no idea what these people did when they applied for the birth certificate. Anyway the result was that the name printed on her certificate is not my official name. I need to get this changed. The people at the birth certificate office told me to go to some other place but i'm not sure what needs to be done.

Since I did not take my husband's name, it is imperative that my name on her birth certificate be correct as that will be the only proof that I am her mother.

Kindly advise me on how to go about correcting this paper work.

ElasticSearch max file descriptors too low error

ElasticSearch 5.x requires a minimum of Max file descriptors 65536 and Max virtual memory areas 262144.
It throws an error on start-up if these are set to very low value.
ERROR: bootstrap checks failed max file descriptors [16384] for elasticsearch process is too low, increase to at least [65536] max virtual memory areas vm.max_map_count [65530] is too low, increase to at least [262144]
Check current values using:
$ cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max 16384 $ cat /proc/sys/vm/max_map_count 65530 $ ulimit -Hn 16384 $ ulimit -Sn 4096
To fix this, following files need to change/add below settings:
Recommended: Add a new file 99-elastic.conf under /etc/security/limits.d with following settings:
elasticsearch - nofile 800000 elasticsearch - nproc 16384 defaultusername - nofile 800000 defaultusername - nproc 16384 Alternatively, edit /etc/sysctl.conf with following settings:
fs.file-max = 800000 vm.max_map_count=300000

ElasticSearch Curator

Curator is a tool from Elastic to help manage your ElasticSearch cluster.
For certain logs/data, we use one ElasticSearch index per year/month/day and might keep a rolling 7 day window of history.
This means that every day we need to create, backup, and delete some indices.
Curator helps make this process automated and repeatable.

InstallationCurator is written in Python, so will need pip to install it:
pip install elasticsearch-curator curator --config ./curator_cluster_config.yml curator_actions.yml --dry-run
ConfigurationCreate a file curator_cluster_config.yml with following contents:
