    SM part found: SM pcie riser internal pcie slot - (Should card just hang free?)

    yes, SM did send me the part, but i cant recall if i had to pay the 108$ or if i got a refund. in the end, the pcie cards that go in this slot and use this bracket (i think) are custom supermicro and need to be a tad unusual size vs standard pcie cards. so i had to use the bracket...

    adding nvme to X9 board via NVMe HBA (supermicro AOC-SLG3-4X4P )

    awesome info! thanks alot! 3 questions for my use case: 1- anyone know of a way to get occulink out of the chassis to go to a "nvme diskshelf"? (maybe this is a dead issue tho bc of nvme+cable length, but ie my server is a 4u with 24bay SAS BP, right atop this server, on my rack, i do have...

    adding nvme to X9 board via NVMe HBA (supermicro AOC-SLG3-4X4P )

    so im kind of thinking out loud here, but i would really like to make use of some of the pcie lanes on my X9DR3-LN4F+ rev 1.20 , to run a few NVMe drives (u.2 2.5"). I know this board does not support pcie bifuracation, else this would be pretty easy! (ive read the threads where some...

    Supermicro X10SL7-F fan control

    fwiw- on my 4u 24bay chaisis / x9DR3-LN4f+ , when i set the ipmi fan profile to HEAVY IO , it leaves all the fans at ~3500rpm (which is what all fans are usually at with OPTIMAL or STANDARD fan profile) , Except that is spins up only FAN A to ~7000 RPMs. so based on that i would think FAN A...

    1.6tb NVMe to use for L2ARC (zfs)? - have 256g ram

    (does my arcstats data show that i really wont benefit from adding a large NVMe l2arc ?) as just one specific example, i notice that sometimes if i run a find command like: find /mnt/ -type d -iname "*7.71*" (or -type f for files) sometimes it will take quite a while to search (10minutes+...

    (back instock) - 480g hgst SSD (sas3) - 60-75$ offer accepted!

    well some interesting / bad news (possibly bad). While the 21x of these drives i got have been running great, there does seem to be a pretty serious bug / issue with quite a few of them (or maybe with their specific HP firmware). When i run a SMART LONG test, towards the end of the test, the...

    1.6tb NVMe to use for L2ARC (zfs)? - have 256g ram

    I try very hard to not cross post (ie make same post here as over at the freenas forums), but in this case i feel its important enough to break my "rule"- There is a different perspective/experience level over here on STH forums and i really wanted to get that input on this important question...

    Setting all 24x switchports as tagged for 200 x VLANs?

    i know my reply above is a bit long winded, so here is a more direct post of my follow up question: does a trunk port pass ALL vlans (ie 0-4096) OR only all vlans *used/created on that specific switch?* ie: if i have switch A making use of only vlan 50, and switch B making use of only vlan...

    Setting all 24x switchports as tagged for 200 x VLANs?

    Thanks for all the replies, I should have been a bit more clear, there are 10x switches at this property, in a flat network config (ie all in default vlan0), however every AP is in router mode (ruckus calls this gateway mode- ie each AP is doing NAT and dhcp-server to its WLAN interfaces)...

    Setting all 24x switchports as tagged for 200 x VLANs?

    Main Question: should I expect any performance hit from enabling 210x tagged VLANs on ALL 24x ports of a switch (or alternatively setting ALL 24x ports as trunk ports) background / equipment: We have a install with 10 x netgear 24-port switches, into which are plugged 200x ruckus 7372 access...

    8TB Sun/hgst drive showing as 7.9TB (and not 8.0TB like others)

    Unbelievable that you picked that out from all the data i posted... but i think you have nailed it! I should know in about 20 (!) hours and will def. update back here. Even if it does not accomplish what i need, that has to be the issue im seeing. Im actually pretty sure that smartctl -a...
