    Fast.com from Netflix

    The new fast.com lets you change the number of connections/threads. Going from 8 to 16 increased my download a lot.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Delidding

    It seems odd to populate all four dies and then disable two. It would have to be the same two disabled all the time which is not going to allow selling an Epyc with failed cores as a consumer part. If it is the case, I would have rather AMD pulled an Intel and used a smaller cheaper socket for...

    Used Samsung 305t Plus worth getting for $250?

    I already baked it. The LED changes colors when you put signal into it, but the screen never turns on.

    Used Samsung 305t Plus worth getting for $250?

    I have a dead 305T+ sitting on my desk. The monitor was amazing when it was working, but the scaler is kaput.

    Best Practice Dual Monitor.

    All the AMD cards I have owned do not down clock all the way when you plug in more than one monitor, so I normally plug one into the onboard and one into the GPU.

    Who has ordered one of the Scrypt mining ASICS?

    If any of these ASICs have the memory built in, increase the memory requirement beyond what they have and kill the device. IIRC LTC memory requirement is rather small so that it would fit into a CPU's cache.

    Current Green Man Gaming 25% Voucher Works w/ Battlefield 4 Premium.

    Dual E5530s & Win7 worth folding on?

    2.4GHz Quads with HT. IIRC I was on the lower end of BigAdv on Linux a couple of years ago so I am guessing SMP only. If there is a windows vs linux penalty, it might not matter much if I'm stuck with SMP.

    Dual E5530s & Win7 worth folding on?

    Looking at getting getting a box running again. I reacquired one of my folding rigs from a few years ago wondering if how it will fair. Last I was here, running linux under VB was giving better performance than Windows native, is that still true? The box is going to double as a HTPC so looking...

    Infiniband connection between 2 windows servers

    OpenSM needs to be on a single node only. Since the VM does not see the physical IB hardware, it will need to be the Windows box. The IPoIB interface does not need a default gateway, dns, or wins. Just IP and subnetmask Don't change your GbE interface settings. As for trroubleshooting the...

    Just placed an RMA for a WD Drive. Will they send the same exact model?

    RMA'd 3 2TB EARS drives in the last few weeks. The first one, I got back a 2TB EARX, ok fine. Two weeks later, I RMA two together and receive 2 2TB EFRXs... All three were new drives and I did advanced replacement.

    Infiniband connection between 2 windows servers

    You definitely need them on a different subnet if you are going to have Ethernet and IB. I had a similar experience with passthrough not working, but I think it was before the update that fixed PSOD. Try this: IPoIB on Windows w/ IP: 192.168.2.2 255.255.255.0 (/24) CX-2 added as uplink on new...

    Infiniband connection between 2 windows servers

    Also, looking at the OP again, you can try passing the IB card through, or add it as a interface on a vSwitch and make it a new network segment.

    Infiniband connection between 2 windows servers

    Either use the server's IPoIB IP when mapping or browsing the network share or put a entry in the client's hosts file that gives a name to the server's IPoIB IP.

    RJ45 crimping and connectors

    I have an Ideal 30-496 I like; it is small and light. I also have the more expensive monoprice crimp and use it more often. Also, in my experience the ratchet gets in the way. Also, to echo zero2dash, I buy premade cables when I can.

    Online Backup Opinions

    I use spideroak for my desktop(Linux), though I have a small dataset. My father uses carbonite with ~2TB of data and it is slow as molasses. I have seen it take about a week for 10 JPEGs to get backed up, he has 25/25 fios and the system is on 24x7. Jungledisk looks like an interesting option...

    Reds also are only 1E14 error rate, equal to consumer Toshiba or Seagate drives, but worse than any Ent. drive. For OP, if this is a home server, not going to have data you will lose money when you cant access, and you don't have a client/boss to answer to when the array is down, consumer...

    RAID HDD Choice

    Biggest power differential is 5.16W at start up. Lets use that value for worst case. 5.16W * 24 drives = 123.84W - Not a small amount, maybe could go with a smaller PSU How about running cost. I pay ~$0.13 to ~$0.45 US per KWH, so worst case again, $0.45. Also, do running 24x7 with a 94%...

    Infiniband card passthrough to Solaris cases boot hang

    Even with the Mellanox stack installed you cant pass the card through as far as I know. IIRC, it is something to do with how the firmware deals with soft resets. I tested with Linux, which wont reboot, but you will see errors in dmesg.

    WD Red drives?

    I didnt see good speeds until -b 4096 -c 4096. It is a MicroServer related problem and not badblocks settings. Reran testing on host1 with a LSI2008 and stock settings gave me better performance. Results on MicroServer: Test Value | Avg. Read (MB/s) | Avg. Write (MB/s) | Test Duration Wall...

    WD Red drives?

    Edit: Ignore, hardware problem. See post #501 Adding to the badblocks discussion, I got 3 more Seagate 3TB. Using -b 4096 -c 256 vs -c 2048 saw a doubling in instantaneous throughput. After 4096 only 10's of MB/s were added with each -c doubling.

    Mellanox IB Card suggestion for ZFS

    I have already changed my setup so this is not 100% comparable, but from my daily computer, E3-1245 V2 Kernel 3.2.0-23, to Host1, G34 6128 Kernel 3.5.0-19, datagram mode gets a max of 13.9Gbps ConnectX-2 to ConnectX-2. So slower, but still better than 10GbE.

    WD Red drives?

    Edit: Ignore, hardware problem See post #501. When using badblocks on 3x 3TB Segates I noticed an increase in instantaneous speed from -c 128 to 2048, past that gave little increase. Disk throughput was viewed using iotop. I did not look at average speed because I ended up killing badblocks...
