  • 11/07/13--05:00: FTP Issue
  • FTP Issue
    posted by Craig Van Horn on Nov. 7, 2013, 8 a.m. (11 days ago)

    We are having an issue with our FTP uploads to dgit.com and was wondering if any of you guys could help point me in the right direction to solving it. We’ve tried using several clients including Filezilla to do the uploads and they do complete but once completed they restart and begin uploading again. I’ve looked at the settings and can’t find anything to suggest why this occurs inside the facility, we can take the same files home and upload using Filezilla without the same repetitive restarts on uploads.

     

    Any advice on where to start looking on our systems or perhaps an issue with our ISP? Would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Many thanks!

  • Video conferencing question
    posted by Matt Daly on Nov. 7, 2013, 11 a.m. (11 days ago)
        One of our clients is a large enterprise that has an extensive polycom installation in almost all of their conference rooms. They do scattered site meetings where multiple sites can all see a shared screen, etc, etc. I am wondering if there is a software solution for us to participate in those kind of conferences.
         I currently have no idea which exact system (s) they are using (I am working on finding out), but my question for the list is : Do polycom's typically have a bridge to skype or some other software based solution? I want to make sure I am barking up the right tree. Polycom's website is not super helpful.

    recommendations on SSD for MacPro Edit Stations
    posted by Tommy Asbee on Nov. 7, 2013, 2:45 p.m. (11 days ago)
    Hey Guys,

    Figured I should reach out to everyone before I start spending some money...

    We are going to move our Edit stations (FCP/AVID/premiere) onto SSD's and was wondering if anyone had a particular SSD they prefer...

    ( I know  - like HD's everyone has had bad and good experiences with all brands) just wanted to see if people leaned one way or another...

    I typically buy that stuff from OWC..

    thanks in advance!

    -Tommy

    Anyone else affected by Verizon outage in LA area?

    Cogent went down for us yesterday around 15:30 (Venice / West Side), and they tell us that the outage is due to Verizon (which is delivering the local service). Anyone else affected, or are we just "special"?

  • Mobo replacement
    posted by Brian Krusic on Nov. 10, 2013, 10:40 p.m. (8 days ago)
    Hi,

    Wondering if there are any Tyan or SuperMicro product gurus out there?

    I've a few Intel motherboards that need replacing with one capable of at least 256GB but no more than 384GB of RAM.

    My current Intel mobo;


    And the case its in, or rather what its part of;


    I'd need to keep the guts mainly being the Intel E5-2430 CPUs and simply swap out the mobos.  The 8x16GB ECC RAM modules currently in it would be nice to keep but I doubt that a 16 slot capable mobo is in the cards.  But if it is, coolio.

    The other requirement is 4 PCIe of which 3 need to be x8 gen 3 capable,   The other can be x8 gen 2 capable.

    And lastly, I'd love to re use my power supplies and associated power distribution board and simply connect this new mobo.

    Many many thanks in advance,

    - Brian

    posted by Susan Fong on Nov. 12, 2013, 1:05 p.m. (6 days ago)
    Okay, I'm mostly a lurker but had an idea.? I have zero time to work on said idea, but I'm curious what others think.

    There has been a groundswell of support in recent years for industry standards, convergence on 3rd party apps, and general 'unification' of our pipelines across studios.? More and more code is being shared from openexr 2.0 to opensubdiv and openvdb.

    What about license servers?? Aren't there some products that you might kill the engineers on sight for their crappy licensing??

    What if smart people like you wrote an open source license server solution designed specifically with large farm scalability in mind?? Getting all farm run apps to converge on a license server solution when cost is involved is difficult.? But if cost isn't involved...

    It might make everyone's life easier if we had a standard open source solution where cost wasn't part of the equation.

    thoughts?

  • Concept - LTFS?
    posted by Dan Young on Nov. 12, 2013, 11:55 p.m. (6 days ago)
    Really basic stuff here, but I'm not as versed with ultra modern-backup/archival at the moment.

    I guess what I'm interested in is archival, but to leave that topic alone, effectively what I'm after is;

    - a single-loader LTO (ideally 6, acceptable 5) that can be compatible, and properly so with 10.8 MacOSX
    - IDEALLY thunderbolt, acceptably SAS and the iMac this is intended for will have an external PCI cardcage over thunderbolt
    - ability to support using TAPES as if they were any regular old FILESYSTEM

    Is LTFS really want I'm interested in? Or is it all just a bit more simple than that? I won't be needing software, I effectively want 1.6tb LTO tapes to run as if they were harddrives when they're loaded in the single loader.

    Cheers,
    DY

    We are doing some Edit Suite updates here and wanted to see what people are doing for surround sound speakers / system. I am in the framing just completed so I am running cable and figured its a good time as any to upgrade to 7.1 for the future even though most of our work still only requires 2 Channel. We got a few clients who wanted to Monitor in 5.1 or 7.1 so I wanted to price out some systems if anything I will have things pre-wired for it.?

    Anyone use Genelec?

    Thanks!

    OSX Mail app - eliminate the need for locks
    posted by Brian Krusic on Nov. 13, 2013, 5:40 p.m. (5 days ago)
    Hi,

    Kind of an odd ball question.

    Is there any way to have no locks on NFS mounted home dirs and have Mac Mail work properly?

    TBird seems fine w/o em.

    Just curious if any one has messed with this.

    I know I know, its kind of a stupid question for a stupid application for a stupid OS.

    Ok, back at this again.

    Curious if any one knows how to bypass the dialogue button that keeps popping up during archives?

    Some like missing footage etc when in fact there is no missing anything.  Except for my foot to insert in this things a#$!

    My IT guy has to get up in the wee AM now and again, VPN in and press OK.

    At least we have a script that informs us when it happens.

    Am I stupid here, any one else dealing with this?

    posted by Brian Krusic on Nov. 15, 2013, 5 p.m. (3 days ago)
    Any one use these bad boys?


    Lotta hype.

    Seem like some TCP offload/etc... good-ness.

    I'm using the regular Solars.

    Thing is its all PCIe Gen 2.

    Calomel had a most fascinating write up on Gen2 vs Gen3.

    Key points pasted below;

    We highly recommend getting an interface card supporting PCIe due to their high bandwidth and low power usage. Note, PCIe version 2.x has a 20% bandwidth overhead which PCIe version 3.x does not. PCIe 2.0 delivers 5 GT/s (GT/s is Gigatransfers per second), but employs an 8b/10b encoding scheme which results in a 20 percent overhead on the raw bit rate. PCIe 3.0 removes the requirement for encoding and uses a technique called "scrambling" in which "a known binary polynomial" is applied to a data stream in a feedback topology. Because the scrambling polynomial is known, the data can be recovered by running it through a feedback topology using the inverse polynomial and also uses a 128b/130b encoding scheme, reducing the overhead to approximately 1.5%, as opposed to the 20% overhead of 8b/10b encoding used by PCIe 2.0.

    The actual article;


    Thoughts?

  • Gift Storage Ideas?

    Our group was just given 11 storage units containing 16 2T drives. They are no-name units with built in PC and some sort of RAID controller (unknown *which* controller). 3 GBit Ethernet interfaces.

    What would you do with them?

  • 11/18/13--04:54: NFS load balance
  • NFS load balance
    posted by Dave Kelly on Nov. 18, 2013, 7:54 a.m.

    I have 3 Centos 6.4 nodes fiber attached to a StorNext SAN. I am exporting the same volume on all three. The share is exclusive to a system called Avere which is its own cluster and mounts the NFS share I provide. I would like to get all 3 nodes in on the action but at the very least a failover would be nice.

    I have tried rrdns but once the system mounts a share, even if that node disappears it will wait until that node is back, does not do another dns lookup so that was a fail. Does anyone have any experiance with NFS loadbalance or failover? The wall I am running into appears to be the NFS connection once established becomes persistent.
