    which is basically a db9 to wifi adapter. thought that was interesting.


    If you happen to be looking for a console server, I built one on a pi3 using a USB hub and USB to serial cables:
    https://www.packet6.com/configuring-your-raspberry-pi-as-a-console-server/

    its cool in that the pi3 has wifi, so even in a bad network down situation, you have true out of band access.


    During Amazon prime days I purchased an Asus AC-68 wifi card, avoid this if you will be using it in a windows 10 or linux system. Internet is full of complaints and problems. I went to return it today and get the next one up from it, the AC-88.. Apparently it has lots of issues too... Anyone know a good 4x4 wifi card? :)

    Nexenta - Anyone still using or considering a SDS solution from them?

    However with your cluster arrangement and other needs, I can see why you chose a seemingly promising fee based option.

    Let me be clear on this, while I was very happy to see someone pushing commercial solutions based on open source products (in this case ZFS which seemed like a god send of a file system/ vol management solution at the time) it was far from my first choice. Being in the M&E sector, deadlines are a way of life as is high performance backends. Not many sectors push the hardware as hard as we can/do daily.

    At the time we had our main file systems on BlueArc. When it came time to expand I requested a quote from HDS for some additional disk shelves, one more head, and licenses to use. They came back with a quote for 1.1 million. That was so far out of the park I wondered if they thought it was a joke or they were smoking some good crack. ( funny, afterwards when they knew we were going else where that quote went from 1.1 million down to 700k and below quickly).

    This prompted us to look elsewhere. To make another long story shorter, the ownership insisted we went with the cheapest, ignoring my resistance and advice for weeks about avoiding going with an 'unknown' or 'unproven' vendor or technology for this particular role in the company.

    So it was _not_ a choice I made, it was made for me based on economics and nothing to do with experience or technology. That said, it was easy for me to get behind as it was based on an opensource solution. The thinking at the time was "yeah, stick it to the over priced vendors, start a revolution in our sector, F HDS, or 110,000 dollar nodes anytime you want to expand!!". And the truth is I *REALLY* wanted to see it and them succeed. I kept the horror stories to myself for a very long time in an effort to see this revolution gain traction.


    That said, I still think ZFS is one kick ass solution and I think everyone should be considering/evaluating it. This disk/data stuff isn't black magic anymore. Its crazy how vendors (Isilon, NetApp, HDS and so on) want to charge you a license for everything, protocals, reports, moving data from one solution to another.. Its such gouging. They work on the "well you paid this much already, this little hump won't be so bad, and besides, which options do you have?".



    If I were to buy commercial storage again, I'd be looking at Sun/Oracle and Isilon, unless the vendor could point me to about 10 people on this list that are using it already without major show stoppers.

    I feel for you Greg.  I know you had an uphill battle to fight on new storage infrastructure.  One glimmer of hope may be that given the immense cost and pressure the company faced due to storage infrastructure issues, the ownership may be more lenient when given advice from IT professionals.

    EMC Dell/Isilon software storage products. IsilonSD Edge and Scale IO
    posted by Greg Whynott on July 18, 2017, 2 p.m.
    Has anyone deployed either IsilonSD Edge or ScaleIO products from Isilon/Dell?


    IsilonSD seems to be license/soft limited to 36TB (obviously a marketing imposed limit - not a technical one) which is too bad as the idea of using OneFS around the shop where you can is a great concept.



    I"m wondering which technology they are using on the ScaleIO product, and if it is really free. Waiting for my rep to answer but thought maybe someone here has gone through the motions already.

    According the to wiki its "freeware"!(?).. has to be a typo.

    Anyone have insight here?

    Surveillance camera / dvr system?

    I may need to build a new multi-cam HD surveillance system this week.

    Anybody recommend their flavor as reliable + reasonably easy to set up and manage?

    I've heard less-than-stellar reviews of the Synology experience.

    Isilon VHS or provisioning strategy
    posted by Julian Firminger on July 25, 2017, 9:35 a.m.
    Peeps,

    We're reviewing how we provision space on our Isilon clusters. Specifically how to avoid running over the magical 90% limit.

    There is several schools of thought and I'm interested to know what all you are doing
    • Quotas including overhead
    • Calculate Protection level to VHS spare count
    • VHS percentage reservation
    • Restricting total smartpools to 90%
    What we have been doing is the quota method but as our users need to see real-data levels we have to provide quota values without overhead. We built script tooling to examine all the quotas, get the data value with the overhead and total everything. Then work out how much room is left to allocate to quotas for burst space. This is complex and annoying but it does give us complete control of our destiny.

    I'm interested to hear if anyone is using any other method, or has yet another idea.

    I am not saying I did this in one of our buildings.... but..
    Take the Cover off. Put some gaffers tape on the speaker. Put cover back on.

    Good morning!

    I'm adding door-prop alarms to some rooms. The Detex units are dandy, but SO loud.

    Anybody have one they use & like that can just let the people in the immediate vicinity know, and not everybody in the tri-state area?

    Good evening all,

    We have some devastating news that Chris Hyman sadly passed away this morning after a brave fight with lungcancer over two years.

    We know Chris posted a lot of this listand was known fondly by a lot of the members.

    His generosity, kindness, friendship, and knowledge will leave a massive hole.

    We will be raising a glass of Jack Daniel's tonight in his name.

    He is a giant of a man in every sense of the word.

    Chris, you will be missed and never forgotten.

    LOVE ALWAYS.

    SIGGRAPH Rez BoF Wednesday 2:30-4pm Room 511BC
    posted by Matt Plec on July 31, 2017, 3:25 p.m.
    If anyone's headed to siggraph and interested in Rez (https://github.com/nerdvegas/rez), there was apparently a bit of confusion getting the BoF scheduled. There were two different listings for a while. Looks like that's sorted out now but in case you checked a while ago or didn't know about it and are interested, it's 2:30-4pm Wednesday inRoom 511BC.

    Hi,

    Being based in London, I've received an invite to this Friday's Sohonet Summer BBQ.

    Wondering if any other studiosysadmins will be there for a burger and a drink to talk shop.

    All the best,
