    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    To be fair, if you want to do the VLANs you need either a USG/UDM gateway or a router that can handle the cam's VLAN traffic. The ubiquiti "Pro" L3 switches claim to support L3 in all of their marketing material but have never actually worked to this day and it's been on sale for months. You...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    More or less, except your switch won't have a management IP (or does it default to DHCP on the mgmt port with telnet enabled? ...no idea). It will only route VLAN 1 but will otherwise act as unmanaged. PoE (if equipped) is off by default so if needed you will need to wait for a console cable.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    you can but tread carefully and test all of your devices (specifically IOT junk) if you do that. It has some issues. https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/brocade-icx-series-cheap-powerful-10gbe-40gbe-switching.21107/page-39#post-206144...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    your switch config looks ok (I think?) from a device on vlan10 (not opnsense) can you ping the switch and opnsense? 10.0.10.1 (will definitely work), 10.0.2.1 (should), 10.0.2.2 (should) if you can ping 10.0.2.2 then you have an issue on OPNsense, so check your NAT rules that they are OK. Also...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I moved the L3 routing duties from my untangle vm to the ICX6450. It was a lot easier than expected, but just wanted to post what I did in one post since I ended up taking info from different posts here & externally to make one complete post. now my internet gw is just a firewall and not a does...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Okay, swapping fan pins was a lot simpler than I thought (the pins come right out when pushing on the tab with a flathead.) The acoustics are definitely better. The full speed noise is significantly less than stock. I attempted to measure it, but you can only go so far with a phone app & rough...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Received my ICX6450-24p today -- everything seems to check out! Judging by the hostname it was in a barn environment.. opened it up and cleaned out that dust.. Before: After: Fans are surprisingly not destroyed by the dust.. Idle ~40 dBa (basically same as spec sheet's 39 dBa) and boot ~56...

    Rack door fans - quiet fix or alternative?

    Hey all. I have this rack: https://assets.tripplite.com/product-pdfs/en/sr24ubffd.pdf Great rack. However the 8 door fans are way too loud for my liking so they are always off. The air intake for servers was a bit too toasty and their fans were spooling up to compensate (5+C above ambient) so...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Finally caved on an ICX6450-24p.. amazing piece of kit that will replace my mixed ubiquiti + CRS305 setup. Love ubiquiti but hate the direction, so I'm glad to replace everything with this. There's 1 left if anyone else is looking for a 24poe Brocade ICX ICX6450 24P Gigabit Switch with SFP+...

    Need Boot? Intel DC S3700 100GB $18.39 OBO shipped

    Oof, too late to consider seller's counter offer of $18/drive for 3.. (price had increased to $22/drive) I didn't realise the S3700 had 1.8 PBW of endurance!! Compared to ~100 TBW for S3500 comparable GB.

    Fusion-io ioDrive 2 1.2TB Reference Page

    Yep turns out ZFS was pegging cores from the I/O. I was getting abysmal rand4k performance on the host directly too. After digging through, I tried reformatting the flash as 4k and re-creating the pool w/ ashift=12 which made next to no difference.. Next, I realised it's the recordsize...
