    Looking for a good single port 10G card.

    It seems my intel 82598EB are dying/dead. Can anyone recommend a decent 10G card w/ 1 SFP+ port only and support for Linux? Thanks!

    It just keeps on getting bigger

    Welp, my original array of 36x2TB is rapidly approaching the 4 year old mark, and they've been in service 24x7 so I'm going to err on the side of caution and assume they will start dropping like flies shortly. Current setup: Primary Server SC847, Dual E5-2620, 64GB ram, LSI 9265-8i for...

    Need help finding a cisco product

    I've got an older 3750g I brought home. It's got 4 SFP ports, but they're all 1gbit. It has a stacking port, and I've got some 10g stuff I'd like to connect via sfp. Does anyone know of a 'cheaper' 4 port 10g switch with SFP's that I can connect to my 3750g via the stacking port?

    Hello, I've got a X9DR7-LN4F, Dual e5-2620, etc. BIOS says VT-D and the like are enabled. I'm trying to do pci passthrough so I can run VMWare on bare metal, then export my HBA's to a OI VM. I spotted the following error in dmesg when I had VMWare installed. 0:00:00:04.621...
