  • 03/20/14--10:45: SSHDs in arrays yet?
  • SSHDs in arrays yet?
    posted by Jeremy Lang on March 20, 2014, 1:45 p.m. (2 days ago)
    A lot of NAS devices and array controllers are supporting SSDs for caching in the array, some devices are even starting to have mSATA slots to add cache without taking a drive bay (unfortunately the one I've seen is a Drobo product and as usual it's all hype--performance is a *joke*).

    But SSHDs are somehow still around and this one's price and size make me curious:

    http://www.i-tech.com.au/products/161531_SEAGATE_DESKTOP_SSHD_4TB_SATA_3_5IN.aspx

    (Though for some reason that's an Australian link, so availability and local price may not be good...)

    Now that's certainly not an enterprise drive, but that asks another question--why not? Maybe even one with a SAS front end?

    Sure, only 8GB cache... and it probably sucks at read prediction in this kind of use... but wouldn't it vastly increase write times at the very least? At least if writes are coming in faster than the controller can flush it's own cache...

    Never miss out on the latest Sapphire upgrade with the Maintenance Program. This new purchasing option for Sapphire enables you to receive version upgrades, floating license upgrades, and unlimited render licenses, all at a lower per-license cost.All Maintenance licenses are permanent and continue to be functional once the Maintenance and Support contract expires.

    Is there anyone left making 4:3 monitors anymore?
    posted by Todd Smith on March 20, 2014, 2:50 p.m. (2 days ago)
    Hey all,

    Recently started shopping for monitor upgrades, currently we still have these ancient Dell 2007FP monitors that do 1600x1200 at 20", great monitors, getting close to a decade old on some of these guys and we still use them for ancilliary stuff.  

    Was hoping to find something comparable in the same aspect ratio and size, but low and behold the only way to get anything even close to that good is 16:10 and even then only when you get up to 24".  

    Is there anyone out there still manufacturing monitors with decent resolutions ?

    Thanks,

    MPC are hiring for two critical roles in our London team that I thought might be appropriate for this list.

    The Render Systems Engineer is a global role which mainly covers the design and implemention of our farm strategy. The Media Systems Engineer role is a London- and Film-focused role managing our client-facing operations -- screening rooms, on-set teams, editorial and production teams, and much more.

    will we be able to buy HDS Blue Arc products anymore?
    posted by Jeff Yana on March 22, 2014, 3:20 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I guess it all depends on what you mean by small deployments.  These days you can get starter configs for well under $75K, depending on your requirements. If by deployment size you mean price-point, and that price point is $20K, then I would agree with you, they would not be interested, but no other commercial storage vendor would be interested either. HDSs street pricing per TB is less than half that of their nearest competitors, in case you are wondering. As we all have repeated over and over again on this forum, its all about the use-case and the right tool for the right job, and sometimes its just a matter of individual bias.

    Its a laudable goal to save money and shop around for the best value, every one should, but if price is the only thing you value, then you just might be chasing yourself down the rabbit hole.

    it really wouldnt surprise me they are leaving as HDS was never really into "small" deployments.    They like working with fortune 500 companies,  government and the like.    The average storage solution deals they make probably start at 7 figures and go way up quickly.  

    I mused here a few years back that Blue Arc needed to figure something else out,  like PNFS or similar.   I don't think any one device is going to be able to keep up with demands going forward and you'll see more and more solutions depending spreading the load wide or distributed over autonomous systems.

    but i could be wrong... I just don't see how they are going to clock things much faster,  the last time I spoke to someone who know much more than I on the subject,  they said CPU's and ASICs can't be clocked much faster with todays technology as they are running into the physical limitations,  as in they can't make an electron stay in a trace..  maybe they'll figure something out...


    Perhaps the solution is with auxilleray devices,  such as Avere offers..  not a faster file-systems but an object handler with less over head..

    Windows 7 - linux samba performance
    posted by Michal Krupa on March 25, 2014, 10:37 a.m.

    Hi. I've bumped a serious issue with windows 7 and samba sharing performance. I'm using this samba share to keep all my plugins and python modules.

    Unfortunately I'm right now facing the problem, that all the modules are loading muuuuch slower than from the local hard drive. Whe accessing the same modules from linux they're loading only slightly slower then from the local hard drive.

    I've made a smal test in python:

     

     

    ########################################################

    import datetime
    import time
    import os

    def fopen_raport(test_path, calls):
        times = []
        result = ""
        
        for i in range(calls):
            times.append( datetime.datetime.now() )
            f = open(test_path, "r")
            f.close()
        
        result += "Tested location: {0}\n".format( test_path)
        result +=  "Number of operation: {0}\n".format( calls)
        result +=  "First call time: {0}\n".format(str(times[0]))
        result +=  "Last call time: {0}\n".format(str(times[-1]))

        return result


    locations = ["PATH_TO_ANY_EXISTING_FILE_ON_LOCAL_OR_SAMBA_SHARE"]

    It opens the file for reading 2000 times and measures the time of .

    For me the results were:

    windows - local file ("C:\test.txt") about .1s

    linux - local file ("/tmp/test.txt") about .01s

    windows - samba share ("\\server\share\test.txt") about 10s (!!!)

    linux - samba share ("\\server\share\test.txt") about 1s

     

    Has anyone faced similiar problem with windows 7 access to samba shares?

    Hi. I've bumped a serious issue with windows 7 and samba sharing performance. I'm using this samba share to keep all my plugins and python modules.

    Unfortunately I'm right now facing the problem, that all the modules are loading muuuuch slower than from the local hard drive. Whe accessing the same modules from linux they're loading only slightly slower then from the local hard drive.

    I've made a smal test in python:

     

     

    ########################################################

    import datetime
    import time
    import os

    def fopen_raport(test_path, calls):
        times = []
        result = ""
        
        for i in range(calls):
            times.append( datetime.datetime.now() )
            f = open(test_path, "r")
            f.close()
        
        result += "Tested location: {0}\n".format( test_path)
        result +=  "Number of operation: {0}\n".format( calls)
        result +=  "First call time: {0}\n".format(str(times[0]))
        result +=  "Last call time: {0}\n".format(str(times[-1]))

        return result


    locations = ["PATH_TO_ANY_EXISTING_FILE_ON_LOCAL_OR_SAMBA_SHARE"]

    for location in locations:
        print fopen_raport(location, 2000)

    windows - samba share ("\\server\share\test.txt") about 10s (!!!)

    Hello all,
    On the lookout for 24" and 32" monitors from the same family.
    Meaning, they need to look identical for installation purposes.
    Seems that there is some manufacturing difference between these 2 sizes and is near impossible to find a Monitor that has 24"-32" flavors.

    Any one know of any?
    Full HD
    HDMI Preferred, DVI works too
    Good color and good viewing angle.


    Nothing from Panasonic, LG , ASUS

    Do iMacs have 2 thunderbolt buses or just 1?
    posted by Rob LaRose on March 25, 2014, 4:30 p.m.

    Anyone know if the iMac's two thunderbolt ports are a single bus, or two separate buses?

    Internet/bandwidth usage monitor
    posted by Heinrich Olesen on March 26, 2014, 9:04 a.m.

    Hi,

     

    We are running a network of 50 + users with mix flavoured operating systems (Linux, Mac os X and Windows) and busy to put something in place to monitor bandwidth/internet usage and to give me a detailed graph of who used what (IP Address or DNS name) and the type of protocol they used most like FTP, HTTP/HTTPS, UDP etc... almost like web security/Websense but I dont want to block sites, just a internet usage breakdown of IP Addresses. If it can give me the URL's that they have used that be a plus. 

     

    The server that I already have setup is a Win 7 Pro with two NIC's, one to monitor the bandwidth and the other to gain access to the machine. Now the one that monitor I want to connect to a mirrored port (one port will be the WAN Gateway and the other the monitor port) on a Extreme Summit X350 switch.

     

    I would like to know if there is a freeware software that can do so ?
