    "Group-buying" supercomputers.
    posted by Julian Firminger on Nov. 18, 2014, 5:50 a.m.
    Oak Ridge, Lawrence Livermore and Argonne are bulk-buying their new super computers. (Yes, you read that right.) Which got me thinking, could the same logic apply to M&E?


    Not sure many of the execs of some of the businesses represented on SSA would necessarily go for it from a political standpoint. However, a regular topic that is coming up more and more frequently is the lower and lower margins with increasing (or never decreasing) data-center technology costs. I wonder what we collectively could do if 10 studios put a bid to the same vendor for compute nodes or storage.

    It's clear that there is great diversity in operations across the member base but not all of that is out of choice. Often end choices are made because one vendor / manufacturer has hit it's targets and will push for market share and you're on the right chair when the music stops. Even outside of that, surely we'd get a lot more attention if we collectively placed an order for 500 x3550's instead of 50, or 20PB of storage instead of 2...

    It is, of course, never that simple. let the yelling begin!

    Aspera dependency on Cloudfront
    posted by Gautham Krishnamurti on Nov. 19, 2014, 5:45 p.m. (2 days ago)
    Hi, I was curious if anyone has run into the annoyance that connecting to an Aspera server requires that you also have access to Amazon cloudfront ? If yes, do you have any clever workarounds. In this day and age filled with security woes, I am trying to create way where certain users can be only given access to a specific Aspera server to upload and download content. Having to give them access to Cloudfront is not going to be acceptable. Here is some info that we have dug up from the interwebs. https://support.asperasoft.com/entries/100990566-Enabling-Javascript-execution-from-cloudfront-net "Cloudfront.net is currently (As of 9/2014) used to host some javascript used by the Aspera Connect web browser plug-in. If this is not permitted, the result is that various elements of Aspera Web transfer applications do not render in the browser and users may be unable to transfer files:" For a list of IPs that you would need to access https://forums.aws.amazon.com/ann.jspa?annID=2051 Thanks in advance Gauth To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    launchd and umask in Yosemite 10.10
    posted by Rory Falloon on Nov. 21, 2014, 8:15 a.m.
    So, from what I have read:

    launchctl no longer has an interactive mode, nor does it accept commands from stdin. The

         /etc/launchd.conf file is no longer consulted for subcommands to run during early boot time; this func-

         tionality was removed for security considerations. While it was documented that $HOME/.launchd.conf

         would be consulted prior to setting up a user's session, this functionality was never implemented.



    It seems now you have to set a custom umask on an application level. 

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/27022000#27022000 gives a tip for setting it for Finder, which seems to work. I don't think changes the umask for any other application, though.

    Anyone else ran into this yet?

  • Mac Software Deployment
    posted by Shane McEwan on Nov. 21, 2014, 10:40 a.m.
    G'day! What do people do for unattended software deployment on Macs? I'm not talking about OS installation, I'm talking about application installation. $WORK develops some software that our customers install on their machines. Currently for Macs we have a fancy GUI installer that asks the user various installation specific questions and then installs the software and creates various config files based on the answers the user gave. We have a similar installer for Windows but we also offer the chance to provide the installation data on the command line so it can be pushed out through Group Policy. For Linux we have a deb package that can be pre-seeded with the answers to the installation questions. I'd like to find out what you guys are using to deploy software to Macs so that we can ensure our software works nicely with those sorts of tools. Thanks! Shane.

    Display Bandwidth on thunderbolt buses?
    posted by Rob LaRose on Nov. 21, 2014, 12:25 p.m.

    Does anyone know how much bandwidth is used by Apples Cinema display and Thunderbolt display?

    Im trying to optimize my usage of the various buses, and the more I read, the less I know.

    I *thought* each thunderbolt BUS could do 20Gbps full duplex, but lots of places seem to say each port (2 per bus) can do 20Gbps, for a total of 40Gbps per bus.  They use phrases like according to Apple, but I cant find anything with Apples name on it that says that.

    Separate from that, Id like to know how display data for a Displayport LED display and/or a thunderbolt display chip into that on a particular bus.  How much of my 20 (or is it 40?) is left after driving the display?

    I welcome LMGTFY responses that actually return official data.

    OSX Server Samba Share // Posix permissions always 700 ?
    posted by Mathieu Arseneault on Nov. 26, 2014, 9:45 a.m.
    Hi,

    Anyone has experience with OSX Server Samba Shares ?
    When file/folder is being created through SMB (windows), the posix perms are always 700, which is problematic.

    I tried OS X Server 10.6, 10.8, 10.10.

    Any insight ?

    Thanks

    Autodesk & VES Christmas event: Build your dream pipeline
    posted by Darren Brooker on Nov. 26, 2014, 11:27 a.m.

    It’s been a busy year here at Autodesk with great releases and exciting acquisitions, so we wanted to take the opportunity to showcase how our commercial post pipeline is evolving with the acquisition of Shotgun...there'll be a few festive drinks thanks to our friends at VES London too! Register now @ autode.sk/dreampipeline

    Questions?: send them over to darren.brooker@autodesk.com

    Autodesk
    Build your dream pipeline for commercial post
    Flame. Maya. Shotgun.
     
    Consistently delivering on time and on budget can be challenge enough in any business. Given the additional demands of sky-high expectations and an equally-high volume of projects, it’s no wonder the fast-paced world of commercial post is such a challenging business. Every inch the match for this demanding environment is Flame, which has stood the test of time as one of the most trusted hero brands in post, whilst Maya’s reputation in complex VFX-driven environments is second-to-none. With these tools in your arsenal, all you need to consistently deliver on those expectations is a robust and efficient pipeline that allows your artists to focus on the art rather than the logistics. And that’s where Shotgun fits in.

    Come join the #AutodeskExperts at our Christmas event, held in partnership with the Visual Effects Society and discover what a dream pipeline for modern VFX-driven commercial post looks like. Did we mention there’ll be festive drinks too?

    Hi Mat,

    It's on OSX 10.8 ( also tried 10.9 10.10).
    The problem is when a Windows 7 client wrote through samba, it writes as 700 (+acls).
    We use AD.

    I guess what I am saying is: 20$ that it's not internal.

    I downloaded the data so that I could see if those morons let my personal information out into the digiverse forever. I'd love to see them come after me for data theft -- is it stealing if it was yours to begin with?

  • 12/04/14--01:57: Samba Tunning with OSX
  • Samba Tunning with OSX
    posted by Richard Barnes on Dec. 4, 2014, 4:57 a.m.

    Hi,

    Been working on a small project with centos 6.5 on a server (Dell R720) for back ups.  I've bonded the NIC's and running a samba share.  I have had great success with transferring large files, but when transferring folders with a large number of files and folders (thousands for testing) the speed is dramatically reduced.

    I created a test case, one 10gig file (FolderA) transfers in around 3 mins, but 10Gig created with thousands of files (FolderB) takes about 8mins.  Now you may say that is about right due to acknowledgments, number of files, but I did try with an off the shelf product and even though the folderA took longer (5min), folderB took only 6mins.

    I found a great site to help with samba tuning, but most of my efforts have resulted in slowing down the transfer rather than speeding it up.

    https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/speed.html

    http://www.oreilly.com/openbook/samba/book/appb_02.html

    There are also references to changing the delayed_ack and sysclt.conf on both the server and the client, though I would prefer to leave the clients as they are.

    Also tried NFS and FolderB took even longer around 10mins.

    Any thoughts or person experiences would be greatly received.

    Kind regards

    Richard

    fiber connector question - extending HD signals in a theatre
    posted by Matt Daly on Dec. 4, 2014, 11:25 a.m.
    I am speccing a project that needs to send HDMI over fiber in a building. The GC is insisting on terminating the multimode with LC connectors. I am looking at using a Gefen or Blackbox extenders, they require multimode with SC connectors. I see that there are available patch cables that go from LC to SC, does anyone know if there is any gotcha when using these mixed connector patch cables?

    Also - Does anyone have a favorite extender? I am not sold on any that I have seen. I see a number of cat6 based ones too, also there is now HDbaseT. I assume latency is a tradeoff, but is it really an issue?
