    Hey what are people using on the desktop these days for 3D monitors. We have been using the LG LG D2342P-BN that has been replaced by the LG D2343P-BN but I have also heard they are no longer going to make 3D monitors. Anyone one have preferences to what to use? Must be passive glasses.

     

    Thanks -Terry

    After reading JF's Dump about Flame and S&W...?

    Can we setup a StudioSysadmin General Wiki we can all start contributing too.?
    The same questions come up over and over it would be great to have something more organized for everyone refer too and easier to update overtime.


    There could be different sections..

    Flame
    ? ? ?-Networking?
    ? ? ?-Storage Config

    Switches
    ? ? ?-Cisco
    ? ? ?-Foundry
    ? ? ?-Force10?
    ? ? ? etc..?

    Networking
    ? ? ?-Linux
    ? ? ? ?-NFS Mounting blah blah..
    ? ? ?-Windows
    ? ? ?-OSX


    If not I have no problem hosting one at our COLO on a VM ?for people to contribute and SSA can Link to that from its website.

    IPMI on dedicated port on SuperMicro servers
    posted by Jean-Francois Panisset on Nov. 20, 2013, 3 a.m.
    I was having no end of trouble getting the dedicated IPMI network port to work on some SuperMicro servers until I ran across the following:

    http://serverfault.com/questions/361940/configuring-supermicro-ipmi-to-use-one-of-the-lan-interfaces-instead-of-the-ipmi

    Turns out you can also configure this property through the web interface (assuming it is up and running in "passthrough mode" on the first Ethernet port and you can actually get to it), but sending "raw" IPMI commands with ipmicfg made me feel all powerful.

  • I have a dream (licensing)
    posted by Susan Fong on Nov. 12, 2013, 1:05 p.m. (9 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. (9 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. (8 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?

    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?

    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. (3 days ago)

    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.
