    Internet options at remote sites in and around Toronto
    posted by Bobby Jain on Sept. 3, 2014, 3:55 p.m. (3 days ago)
    We have setup a studio space, and a production office in West Toronto (Etobicoke). The internet options have been brutal to say the least.

    Bell: 50/10 ADSL (crashes frequently, Bell not much help)
    Rogers: no service, $10,000 to install a line

    And that's it. We are currently going to be getting at least one more line, to help segment traffic (one connection for internet traffic, one for VPN).

    Any recommendations out there for consultants that specialise in these sort of remote setups?

    We just purchased a site license of Xfrog and guess what! It's still node locked on a per machine basis. Reading through the docs they toss out big company names like Pixar ,ILM and Sony so I thought I would ask how you guys are installing this plugin.. On a per user basis? They say I need to launch Maya on each machine and get the code and send to them.. Which they can put into a single file... But 400+ boxes plus rental boxes this is going to be a PITA.

  • ATTO SAS in Dell workstation
    posted by Ken Spickler on Sept. 4, 2014, 8:55 a.m. (2 days ago)
    We just purchased a Dell T3610 workstation and tried installing an ATTO H680 SAS card into it. The system won't POST with the card installed. I've tried a few things in BIOS (I.e. Legacy mode instead of UEFI) but it has no effect. Removing the card allows it to POST, and the card works fine in other systems. It's been many years since I've seen something like this happen, and that was before PCIe was around. Typically it's a software driver that keeps a card from working with an OS but that doesn't prevent POST. Newer workstations have more complex BIOS, so who knows what that does to compatibility. Does anyone have experience with these newer Dell workstations and have you seen similar issues? Dell support is "best effort" which means they checked ATTO's website and said they don't see the workstation listed as being supported. With that, I'm on my own.

    Doesnt seem like a Hakintosh but rather real Apple hardware, but re-warped.

    If it wasn't for 145W TDP and probably eye watering price, those 18 core E5-2699 v3 parts would be pretty awesome in a render farm.

    If you had to decide between buying 100 extra spindles or another Avere with the intention being to augment performance (not capacity) which way would you go? Without considering costs.

    100 extra drives 7500k SAS 6 (in a raidz2 4+2) for a total of 16 additional vdevs (for a total of 32 vdevs) or an additional Avere 3200 (for a total of 3)?

    Isilon (new user!) looking for a high speed way to dupe data on a cluster
    posted by Julian Firminger on Sept. 10, 2014, 10:50 a.m. (1 day ago)
    Morning/Evening gents,

    I have a brand new spunky Isi under my care and I'm wondering if any of you isi-gods out there have a handy way of copying / duplicating data on a cluster at high speed (i.e. IB backend transfer)

    We dont have SyncIQ licensing and EMC are telling me the only other way to move data around on the cluster itself is cp, which is not very fast. Not nearly fast enough considering what it's doing. (~2.5Gbps) I can actually get betterperformance using EMC's own EMCopy over SMB from another box. And ironically EMCopy (I'm told by my rep) is not a tool that can work on the Isilon. *sigh*

    So, anyone else come across this need and if so what are you using?

    Julian Firminger

    Snr. Systems Administrator,

    Morning/Evening gents,

    I have a brand new spunky Isi under my care and I'm wondering if any of you isi-gods out there have a handy way of copying / duplicating data on a cluster at high speed (i.e. IB backend transfer)

    We dont have SyncIQ licensing and EMC are telling me the only other way to move data around on the cluster itself is cp, which is not very fast. Not nearly fast enough considering what it's doing. (~2.5Gbps) I can actually get betterperformance using EMC's own EMCopy over SMB from another box. And ironically EMCopy (I'm told by my rep) is not a tool that can work on the Isilon. *sigh*

    So, anyone else come across this need and if so what are you using?

    Isilon (new user!) looking for a high speed way to dupe data on a cluster
    posted by Bryce Evans on Sept. 10, 2014, 1:25 p.m. (1 day ago)
    SyncIQ would be the way to go, they won't give you a trial/temp?

    http://moo.nac.uci.edu/~hjm/HOWTO_move_data.html This site has a general overview of a few different products

    I had to do this recently and threw together a multiplexing rsync script, use a 'data mover' box in between your two servers, mount them both on the data mover, and run a bunch of rsyncs at once to brute force throughput. My crappy script is herehttps://github.com/partytime/multisync.sh

    You could also maybe do something with dd piped to netcat if you could do a whole volume

    Isilon (new user!) looking for a high speed way to dupe data on a cluster

    Hi Julian, 

    Contact me offline. If this is a one-time replication requirement, I'll help you work thru the temp SyncIQ request. 

    From Amsterdam, where you work I believe...

    hey everyone,

    I'm trying to setup centos 7 with a automount thats coming from ldap.

    when I restart the autofs service after boot it comes up fine,

    anyone got a idea on what service I might need to wait on?

    OT: Amazon Web Services for streaming live events?
    posted by Terry Barnum on Sept. 11, 2014, 11:20 a.m.
    This may off topic for studio sysadmins, but I thought since there's cloud infrastructure involved some here might have experience. In the past we've done occasional small live events streaming rtmp to ~50 users using Limelight. I've recently started using AWS and successfully setup a Wowza server on EC2 to stream HLS via CloudFront using their sample Wowza CloudFormation docs. We have a possible large job with ~3k viewers on iOS, Android and Desktop. Has anyone used Wowza on AWS for a job of this size that could share their experiences and answer some questions? My first is how to determine EC2 server requirements for 3k viewers of a 500kbps stream via CloudFront? Please reply directly if this is too far off topic for the list.

  • 09/11/14--11:00: Data movement apps
  • Data movement apps
    posted by Ken Spickler on Sept. 11, 2014, 2 p.m. (1 day ago)
    We do quite a bit of data movement here and are looking at ways to improve it. Relying on Finder or Explorer (or command line) is probably not as efficient as other options. One thought is to use Spycer for these data movements, but I wanted to see if there might be others out there. Is there something other than Spycer that can be used for managing lots of data movement, or is it still the only game in town?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Prefriday Funny - Transformers without the VFX
    posted by Will Rosecrans on Sept. 11, 2014, 3:30 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I meant to post this as a Friday Funny, but the last few Fridays wound up busy and I forgot, so I figure it couldn't hurt to post it a day early.

    I took a film production class over the summer and wound up directing a little short film as part of the process. It was kind of fun to deal with everything *but* post production stuff for a change of pace. Figured there might be a few others who grew up on the Transformers cartoons here who might appreciate it.

    Here it is: My Dinner With Megatron:
