    omnios+nappit 10gb performance: iperf fast, zfs-send slow

    I finally made the jump to 10GB on my nappit AIO boxes and thought I had followed all of the recommendations, but I am still getting gigabit speed ZFS sends using NC. The weird thing is iperf gives me 8.9 Gbits/sec throughput so I'm not sure if any of the tuneables will help me here. The pool...

    esxi 6.0 drops support for dell C1100/C2100 NOOOOOOOOOO!!

    looks like the dirt-cheap datacenter days are coming to an end. Tried out the new vsphere 6.0 on a c1100 and was greeted with this nice PSOD: It happens right when it starts to load ACPI. The only workaround is to disable vt-d which is pretty depressing... especially for those of us with AIO...
