    Anyone have an old SCSI 2 / 3 controller card with cables in Sydney
    posted by Chris Hyman on Jan. 28, 2015, 4:45 a.m.
    I have various scsi cards and cables, however I am in the UK.

    Julian is correct ( as normal) in that SE = LVD (low voltage differential ) and a U320 will negotiate down to scsi1 if required.

    In other words, any old HBA will do, you just need cables.

    Experience with HP MSA storage?
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Jan. 28, 2015, 3:20 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Looking at HP MSA 1040 (or perhaps 2040) storage for a 2-machine Hyper-V cluster. You can get a dual controller MSA 1040 where each controller has 2 10GbE iSCSI ports, put dual port NICs in your two Hyper-V servers, and you've got shared VM storage with failover without the need for an external switch, and the price is quite attractive.

    Anyone has experience with a setup like that they would want to share, good or bad?

    Half-height vs Full-height LTO 6 FC drives
    posted by Tom Sweatman on Jan. 29, 2015, 9:36 a.m. (1 day ago)

    Hi,

    I’ve been looking at various tape backup hardware and noticed some libraries support either full or half height or both. Half height drives tend to be more cheaper, specifically the Ultrium 6250 drives. Looking at the specs, noticed the buffer size is half of what you get with most full height drives. Wondering how this effects performance operationally, but would like to hear from anyone who has had experiences with these drives. If you could share any noticeable drops in performance and if possible how these compare against experiences with full height drives that would be great. I’m looking at having these drives operating 24/7, but concerned if these drives will be up to the job.

    Thanks,

     

    Tom

    Hitatchi dorks - Command Line Reference
    posted by Dan Young on Jan. 30, 2015, 2:45 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hey dudes, This CLI is very staggering, but I like it. I'm wondering what parts of the CLI you like best? We have an inhouse dev team that loves a good API, and a systems team that also loves those APIs because it makes the pythons much easier on us (procedural) - and I've been asked to come up with a list of things that I might want introduced into the API for our usages. Seeing as how this CLI reference is absolutely enormous, I'm wondering what you guys use the most? We're on HNAS4080, and I'm already whirring things like "move vivol to another filesystem without GUI" type interactions, but what do you find you commonly need to poke a stick in on your HNAS'? Much appreciated, as always DY To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics
    posted by Rob Giltrap on Jan. 31, 2015, 6:33 p.m. (1 day ago)

    I've been mulling over running specific performance tests to help you guys get a better feel for how the ZFS Storage Appliance would work in your environment. We have great SPECsfs & SPC public benchmarks but felt something a little more tailored to the VFX industry would be useful.

    So I start thinking about showing how many 2K, 4K, 8K streams we can concurrently handle, but then wonder what I should use as a standard frame, do you want to see compressed vs uncompressed, are streaming workloads alone enough etc and I quickly determine that what ever I choose will be considered wrong. Also, as I'm from a vendor I MUST be choosing things to best suit the technology rather than a real world workload and therefore the data cannot be trusted, which in effect defeats the whole purpose of the exercise!

    Instead I would like to take a different tack and throw it out to the SSA community as to what you think would be a good test (or tests) would be.

    To put some constraints around this I'm looking at a setup using a smaller ZS3-2 with ~60-120TB usable space. It's at the lower end of our configurations but it's a nice size to start with. There's 4 * 10GbE connection on each controller (8 on a controller pair) so there's plenty of network bandwidth on the front end to show what we can do with a limited number of backend disks.

    So please, let me know if this approach makes sense to you, if you would have more faith in a community defined test and if so, what do you think the testing should look like.

    Cheers, Rob.

    Hey guys/girls - been a while since I posted anything here so hello again! I'm just pulling together some options for stereo playback and wondered if anyone had any hot tips or gotchas to look out for. I currently have a RAM heavy box running Centos 6.4, QuadroFX 4800 with SDI daughterboard plus RV and am thinking about getting a Tru3Di SDM-240 as the VFX sup has used one before and feels comfortable with those. Issues for me are limited resolution and as they're pretty expensive feels like a bit of a waste as we may only get limited use out of it as everyone moves toward 4k, not seen any HDMI 2.0 on graphics cards yet so UHD 3D TV's ruled out right?

    It really depends on what you are trying to playback the media off of (local, NAS, SAN etc.).

    For realtime playback of stereo 2k you are looking for:

    2 (stereo) x 24fps (assumed) x 12-16MB per frame = 576MB - 768MB per second of bandwidth.

    With a decent video card and good streaming perf, system RAM is of less relevance.

    RE: HD vs. 2k vs. 4k, why invest in something you aren't going to use for a few years, especially at a price that is higher than what you will pay when the technology becomes mainstream down the road.  Unless someone can say for certain you are going to do 4k work this year, it's really a waste of money.  Even high end projector workflows are still done in HD/2K.  

    I would say my biggest caveat of that SDM-240 is the small screen.  3D relies on being able to create a decent illusion of depth of field through parallax.  We found that even on a 47' screen these effects are diminished in comparison to watching it on a 20' wide screen.  As such it makes adjustments to the comp harder to implement correctly.

    posted by Matthew McKenna on Feb. 3, 2015, 5:09 p.m. (1 day ago)

    We have been exploring ways to speed up render times here at the School of Visual Arts in NYC and will be demoing an Avere FXT Edge Filer in the upcoming weeks. We are using it to connect to our in-house NAS.

    A few questions for those who have used the same or similar prodcts:

    1. Has the Avere FXT provided an ROI for you?
    2. Any tips and tricks in terms of configuration?
    3. Is there a good competing product you can recommend for us to look at?
    4. Overall, would you recommend an edge filer to speed up render times.

    Since we are school with a production-based curriculum, we output about 600,000 frames in 3 months (Feb, March, April).

    Thanks in advance for your feedback! We are excited to demo this unit.

    Best,

    Matt

    1. Has the Avere FXT provided an ROI for you?
    2. Any tips and tricks in terms of configuration?
    3. Is there a good competing product you can recommend for us to look at?
    4. Overall, would you recommend an edge filer to speed up render times.

    Since we are school with a production-based curriculum, we output about 600,000 frames in 3 months (Feb, March, April).

    Thanks in advance for your feedback! We are excited to demo this unit.

    Best,

    Matt

  • 02/04/15--01:45: Storage indexing survey
  • Storage indexing survey
    posted by  on Feb. 4, 2015, 4:45 a.m.
    Hi All, We are currently exploring the idea of making our in-house storage indexing software available outside of Framestore; eg. commercial or open source. We've seen the indexing topic discussed before on this list and this used to be a problem for us, too. We can view aggregated info across all file systems with break downs by user and history, from 500M files. We also have reporting tools that give a more VFX centric picture of data use that can be more useful to production. We are currently trying to gauge interest / usefulness of this outside of Framestore and we have created a short survey to help with this. If you have a few spare minutes to fill it out that would be greatly appreciated. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/servermgmt Perhaps we can share a summary of the survey results back with the list if there are enough responses, too. Thanks, Stefan -- Software Developer Framestore To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    1U stereo mixer w/ Headphones?
    posted by Rob LaRose on Feb. 4, 2015, 11:05 a.m. (1 day ago)

    Happy Humpday, friends.

    Im mostly using the Behringer 1U mixers in my bays, but hate some things about them.  Conveniently, one of those things is their tendency to stop working.

    So I am looking for an alternative to re-upping.  Im especially interested in:

    - Minimum of 4 stereo sources
    - Minimum of 2 stereo monitoring outputs (speakers) independently controllable
    - Stereo headphone mix independent of the monitoring.

    Anybody help me out?

    Rob

    FWIW, ants had TCP figured out long before we did.

    totally useless off topic post... google chat 'easter eggs'.
    posted by Greg Whynott on Feb. 4, 2015, 4:30 p.m. (1 day ago)

    So i'm talking to someone in google chat (web browser client), and I say "woot"... from out of the text entry bar an animation pops up fist pumping...

    At first I was thinking that was funny, then lame, then I pondered why they want to read my chats, and remind me they were......

    Wish all communications fell under the same protections as talking on the phones are, you don't hear about your phone company listening in on your calls for marketing reasons... I understand we agreed to the user agreement, but that can be superseded by law. *sigh* what a strange world we are heading into. Things are going to be so different for our grand kids, and accepted as normal.

    Privacy, aint' got no time for dat!
