    LSI WarpDrive Sun Oracle F80 800GB PCI-E SSD $95 FS

    Just FYI these drives do NOT work with VSAN as VSAN requires 512 or 4k physical sector size and these are 8k. VSAN won't write anything to these SSDs.

    A silly Question, is there a better alternative to pfsense for home use?

    If you like pfsense as software but not the community have a look on the OPNSense fork. I use it since a year everywhere where I used pfsense before and am very happy with it. Gesendet von meinem BLA-L29 mit Tapatalk

    Rackmount 2U UPS recommendations

    If you only have 1-2 minutes of runtime you have to shutdown your stack every time power drops. Also you would have to wait 3-4 hours until the batteries are recharged before powering on again, because there could be a 2nd drop. Better go for about 5x the time you need to shutdown.

    Bitten by DL380 noise again

    You can use a HP P420 Controller. The problem is, that the drive temperature is read wrong by the P410i and the fans spin up to 100%. This shouldn't happen with a P420 and it will also be a reasonable upgrade (P420 can be set to passthrough/JBOD if you use ZFS or similar)

    1st time FreeNAS user needs help with "Failed to wipe da0: dd: /dev/da0: Invalid argument"

    Yes. The bootloader (xpenology) is. But you are booting the DSM software image of a ds3615xs or similar (the .pat file) which is not!

    1st time FreeNAS user needs help with "Failed to wipe da0: dd: /dev/da0: Invalid argument"

    You can't be serious giving stolen software (xpenology) to your customers? Synology doesn't sell licenses, you have to buy their hardware.

    Which quad E7 systems will boot faster?

    Google has your ass with coreboot-NERF and u-root. With their fully open-source replacement of the UEFI they brought down the boot time of a winterfell node (OCP WiWynn) from 7 minutes to 20s. They already have 4 motherboards supported (unfortunately I couldn't find out which). Also removes...

    1st time FreeNAS user needs help with "Failed to wipe da0: dd: /dev/da0: Invalid argument"

    Most probably there is some raid config on the end of the drives which BSD recognizes using its geom_raid module. The easiest way to get rid of it is clearing it the same way it was created. Alternatively nuke the whole drive.

    CPU v. RAM Utilization

    Just add a few VDI Desktops and workers on that host and CPU will be the limiting factor. Browsers with JavaScript LOVE churning through these CPU cycles. We have a client with about 1700 persistent VDI Desktops on 160 Cores. It all went well for a few months (<25% CPU load on a work day)...

    Why is only 1 cpu used?

    It seems CPU-Z is not NUMA aware. RAM is only accessible by it's own CPU. As a consequence the OS schedules the task only on the Cores which have direct access to the RAM where the data of the process lies. You can set NUMA node interleaving to on in the BIOS, this will change the behaviour so...

    Does Samsung 960 Pro have an Option ROM for C602/X79?

    No, the 950 Pro is the only one. But for C602 and X79 you can mod the UEFI and add the option rom there. Instructions for AMI BIOS: [Guide] How to get full NVMe support for all Systems with an AMI UEFI BIOS
