I got two HP DL380 G7 with 2 x X5675 @ 3,07 GHZ (6 Core + HT = 24 Threads), 8 x 900GB SAS HDDs and 128 GB RAM each.
Is there an easy way to reduce my power footprint?
Resell the RAM-Sticks and buy another server - reusing the disks? Those servers require 170 Watt each - for 24/7 it's way...
Probably a distributed Storage in combination with a capable Hypervisor is suitable for this case.
Gluster + X
Ceph + X
Regarding PostgreSQL you probably want to jump into Replication with Pacemaker or the project Patroni (Zalando).
I should (and could).
Right now I am just "using" it and have the defauls configured. Right now 9% of 11 GB filesystem is used.
Didn't have the need (or time) to dig deeper.
I just just the adblock plugin (pfBlockernNG) and about 40 rules.
I got the Bundle with 4GB RAM and mSATA SSD (16GB) and power supply.
Its quite handy and pfsense 2.5 should be supported (AES-NI...)
If you haven't found anything until mid September - just send me a PM (will move during September)
Not really ontopic but the last Windows-Update (1803??) changed the setting to "ON" again. Had this issue with some Intel NUCs I need to power on by WOL - After the update this was not possible anymore (because of the overridden setting...)
WTF Microsoft is overwriting my chosen settings...
I am building a new House and for all of the automation- /media stuff I want (and "need") a suitable HA-solution.
Means: At the end of the day there should be a high available virtualization solution (oVirt / ProxMox under testing atm).
I already have a quite OK selfbuilt server...
