Can I “High Five” my duplicates from the Mirror Image spell?

The text for Mirror Image says:

the duplicates move with you and mimic your actions […] If an attack hits a duplicate, the duplicate is destroyed.

Does this mean that my warlock can cast Mirror Image, slay an opponent in the first two rounds, then spend the remaining eight rounds giving himself one high five after another? Then wave goodbye to the three images when the spell duration expires normally?

Or does one high five from the caster destroy his own duplicate? One destroyed image with each flat palm slap?

Assume that at the end of round two, no opponent has hit a duplicate, and the three original duplicates are still present when celebratory hand gestures commence.

Near identical MySQL deployments behaving very different – High CPU Usage problem

So I have five identical websites, running on five machines provisioned in the same way. The only thing that differs between these installations are the language files and the languages of the text stored in MySQL tables.

Four of them have no problems what so ever. One is struggling a LOT under the same or somewhat less load than the other four.

I cannot understand why this is.

Things I’ve done so far:

  1. Checked slow queries. All queries uses indexes and are in the realm of 0.0008 Sec execution time i.e. very fast
  2. I’ve noticed that the thing that causes most trouble for this MySQL instance is UPDATE and INSERT, so much so, I’ve turned off the UPDATE’s that were there, for this instance. Bear in mind that these UPDATE’s doesn’t cause a blip on the other servers.
  3. Tried to eliminate external factors i.e. noisy neighbours (moved host) etc.

Worth noticing is that the machines are deployed the same i.e. a vanilla Debian 10 installation with a LEMP stack, nothing out of the ordinary at all.

Still, the problem persists. I can see the load of the machine struggling to keep under 1.00. The other machines are in the 0.10 – 0.20 range all the time.

Looking at CPU for the MySQL process on this machine (with 2 CPU cores as the other machines have as well) it is quite often above 100%. The other machines are never – EVER – over 60% for the MySQL process.

So, any help is much appreciated.

Please do let me know if you need me to run a command that you need to see the output from in order to help.

Thanks.

AWS RDS is showing very high wait/synch/mutex/sql/ values and EXPLAIN statements in performance insights

I’m running a CRON script which checks the database for work and executes anything that needs to be done. It does this across ~500 customers per minute, but we are using AWS RDS with a 16 vCPU machine which, until recently, has been plentiful to keep it happy (normally plugging along under 20%).

This weekend we updated customers to the latest version of the code and implemented some tooling, and since then we’ve started seeing these huge waits: enter image description here

Further I’m seeing that about half of our busiest queries are EXPLAIN statements, somewhere illustrated here: enter image description here

Nowhere in our code base is an "EXPLAIN" performed (though we are using AWS RDS performance insights, ProxySQL and New Relic for monitoring). I did notice that in the past week our number of DB connections was previously baselined around 10 and is now closer to 90. enter image description here

Any ideas on where I should be digging to find the cause of these waits and explain statements? And if they could justify the large number of open connections?

Why is pastebin considered a high risk service

The company I work at uses zscaler to restrict access to certain websites.

Earlier today, I tried to visit pastebin.com, but got the error message in the picture below:

Website blocked. Not allowed to browse SHN-High Risk Services category. You tried to visit:https://pastebin.com/

Trying to google why pastebin is considered a high risk service, I didn’t really find much, except this one blog post which talks about certain hacker groups pasting sensitive data to the site.

This alone doesn’t seem like a very strong reason to block the site, as there should be a multitude of other options for making information public. What am I missing here?
