Do it. I just ran three cat5e lines, because I’m not buying more boxes until I deplete these two...
I think someone needs to go to the Seattle museum and clean up their cdc 6500 wiring mess
Do you want to play a game?
My modest home setup, mind the dust, doing a bit of drywall work.
Nice! That is sweet and simple! How does the wifi work in that rack? Looks like you've got it in a faraday cage.
I’m proud of you.
looks like my boss did that wiring job
Small house, a little over 900 sq ft so it's able to hit everywhere it needs...but it's range is definitely reduced being in there. I figured if I needed to I could mount it on the side but so far so good.
Thanks that was my old job, I'll grab a pic of the really nice setup I did at my new one (here's a preview of a couple of layouts we tried).
Nice! That is all that matters!
Ignore the hdmi over ethernet adapters and such, this was 6" cables.
We had LEDs in the cable management at one point but those were taken out for whatever reason.
Each cubicle gets 1 port so all'ofem need to be hot, voip phone passes through to computer.
Red is executive offices and no touchie ports, green is APs, white is conference phones
The nice thing is even when it gets messy like the above it still looks nice, plus tracing and cable replace is a piece of cake.
That looks really nice. But, what do you do when you need to add another switch? You’ll have to move everything to keep it evenly spaced.
As I mentioned all the ports are hot, ie) every single patch port is live to a switch, we wouldn't need to add more, or if we did we'd need to add a new patch panel and switch anyway so we could have it spaced and organized accordingly if we did.
Its 48 rj-45 ports per switch (with 2 SFP+ for the fiber inbound) and 48 ports per patch panel so its 1-1.
I think it was about 612 patches run to this location there were a few patches at the end that weren't needed/punched down, but the switch has a comparable amount of open ports if they were ever added to the maximum.
This is one of our two IDF so everything is access ports and nothings changed in the past 3 years since it was installed, non of the cables have gone bad, but we could easily change out the cable (which surprised me, I thought those 6" would fail every now and then being so short).
Here's my humble home submission...
In the house:
Supermicro 5018D-FN8T running Untangle HomePro
Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch ES-12F as the "core" switch that handles server connections and the fiber uplinks from the shop
Cisco SG350-28P powers 8 IP cameras as well as the AP's in the house (UAP-AC PRO and a UAP-AC-HD)
Netgear GS510TP handles the overflow since keep adding crap to the network
At the bottom is another GS510TP as well as an EdgeRouter X that I use as a "lab".
In the shop (connected back to the house via 5 OM3 runs in conduit):
Poor picture :-(
Cisco SG250-26P powers the other 6 IP cameras as well as the AP's in the shop and extra garage (2 x UAP-AC-IW)
Backup Netgear ReadyNAS RN102 with external enclosure to back up my Netgear ReadyNAS RN516
If you can get the USG Pro. The standard USG can be grossly under-powered depending on your connection and what goodies you have turned on.
I was considering doing that, I will look into it, thanks.
I love the color coding!
I have a VERY small network set up at home finally.
The ancient Dell on top is handling firewall and adblock duties via pfsense and pfblockerng
it connects to an inexpensive dlink fully managed gigabit switch to provide network connectivity for the R710 and my home PC and trendnet mesh wifi hub
The R710 on bottom is running ESXi 6.7 and runs a few VMs that contain plex, emby, nextcloud and a few other things.
Once we move I plan on getting a rack and adding more hardware.
I'll post up some pics of our submerged racks from work tomorrow if I remember to get some pictures.
yes for the submerged rack pics. Never seen these before
I like the idea of using that small temp/humidity/clock thingee to have a quick monitor of the environment--where did you get it and how much was it?
Whoa! That is unreal! I thought they would be custom servers or something. What is the liquid being used? That can't be water, can it?
It's probably Florentine or some such stuff along those lines. Non conducting liquid.
The liquid is called Electrosafe dielectric liquid coolant. It is both electrically and chemically inert. It has the consistency of mineral oil. The server chassis are custom made but the hardware is nothing special. Normal motherboards, ram, nvme, ssd and GPU (for the GPU nodes, we do have a lot of cpucompoute nodes that are not in oil) The second two pictures those servers have 4 RTX 2080 ti's in them. 3 quads (4 tanks per quad) 42 chassis per tank (168 GPU per tank) = 504 GPUs The first picture those tanks are pretty much all 1080 ti tubs.
they all run 10GB network (the black cable) and dedicated IPMI (the white cable) PDU and switches are mounted on the back of the tanks, but we have submerged switches in the past as well.
Not related, but I got this sweet led backlit blanking panel today.
Thats some serious fucking gear. What does your company use the GPU farm for?
leezard That blanking panel is bad to the bone.
That is awesome. Where did you get that?
Seriously. I've got 3U that need to be blanked thanks to rear-facing top-of-rack networking stuffs. I'd LOVE something like that for my rack.
Analyzing siesmic data
Came from Supermicro long before I started this job. We decomissioned a bunch of racks and these were in them.
Those blanking panels are definitely awesome.
I’m running a regular usg on a gig isp connection (940/50) with no issues.I even have the DPI data inspection turned on. That being said it does run very hot sitting horizontally with the status light facing up (even in open area). It runs about 15 C cooler now sitting/mounted vertically. The no fan passivle cooling is great too, it sits on my desk or in my closet.
Made some additions/deletions to my home rack.
The wiring is a mess but it all works, some day I will make it look pretty with matching, neat cabling.
