    That would rock. Your build server is just begging to have 16gb. Come on, you know you wanna.

    I think a second drive in a striped configuration would also do wonders for performance.
    Yes, I do wanna.

    When drive prices fall a bit more or I find a real good deal on a 1TB WD Caviar Black to match what's in it I will be getting a second drive.

    The problem with the 6 core was that while the CPU was on sale for $20 off, the only boards they had in stock to fit 4sticks of ddr3 were full ATX or $140. At that rate I could have gotten a 2500K and MATX board. I'm switching all my systems to matx for space reasons and while I like you guys, spending $250 to upgrade an already fast server is a bit much.

    I am keeping my eyes open though.
    Like I said, I have 16gigs of ddr3 sitting on a shelf from another project and I want a second drive, it's only a matter of time and what cpu/board it ends up with.

    Thanks for the tip about rsync! I've been using scp, usually takes about 10 minutes to transfer. After the speed of the build (mine usually take about 20 minutes on Leslie's beast), waiting for scp to complete is a drag.

    Thanks for the info. The only machine I have now, the one I use daily, is a P4 2.8ghz. A pretty old Dell. Because of how much learning I'd have to do (starting from the VERY beginning here), I would be comfortable learning on my own hardware before I touch anyone else's.

    Ubuntu 11 has heaps of trouble with my video card, but the wireless works after messing around with the drivers. I couldn't ever find drivers that would work right with my video card. It would stick in 800x600 or 1024x768 which isn't terrible, but I have a widescreen monitor and it really bugs me seeing everything stretched out. It just overall ran REALLY slow. Windows XP and 7 both run like a champ though. I know I can develop in Windows, but I'd like to do it the 'right' way, which from what I can tell is doing it from a Linux environment.

    I'm thinking that I may just grab some more RAM and a cheap video card and see if that helps things, but I almost hate dumping money into it at this point.

    Status update...

    As I mentioned in the one thread, my router has taken a fall.
    My router has two bands, one for Wireless N and a second for Wireless G. The G side of it has died so I have a spare router covering for that. The second is known to lockup, but that won''t effect the build box. It may not sound like a big deal, but this could signal that the entire router is failing, it has been showing signs lately and this is the latest and biggest.

    I'm looking into it to see if a firmware update will fix it or not. If not, I will be replacing it.
    In the meantime, if the primary router should fail entirely, I will have to switch to the backup and it will suffer from lockups (which I will try and stay on top of). In which case I should have a replacement in less than 24hours, 48 tops.

    I'm hoping I can fix the primary, and if not, I'll wait for a good sale and hope things holds out, but if it goes, I will just go get one as quick as possible.

    Could this be the reason I have been getting connection socket fails (something like that)?

    Hmm, I thought about that and doubted it, but now that I think back, I started having issues around the same time the wireless started having issues.

    It's looking more and more like the router is dying.

    Are you running the stock firmware on it? I have an e2000 and run tomato on it and it hasn't had issues yet. But I run very few services on my computer with very few connections compared to your build server..

    Have you thought about using a Load Balance Wire Router?

    I ran it with stock firmware for two years and NEVER had a single problem. I updated it to the latest and it ran well, but not quite the same. My model is actually not an e3000, it's the WRT610-N v2, which was renamed the e3000. Last I saw DD-WRT was all that could run on it, and I have lost a lot of faith in DD-WRT over the last year.

    Unfortunately, I'm pretty convinced the router is failing. There is too much evidence against it, so I went and picked up a Netgear N750 tonight (hour and a half trip!). The 750 will run Tomato (without 5ghz or so I hear).

    I plan to experiment with the 610 a bit and see what can be done, but I now have the 750 for a primary.

    Earthnfire, I just looked at the TP-Link load balancers, I may end yup grabbing one when I get my new line, since I may have to keep my current and get the second, which would really beef up my load capacity. As it is, I already have a gigabit network, I don't run the server over wireless.



    I will be pulling the server offline in a bit for the swap out.
    I will try and catch it in a lull, but this time of night, I will be kicking someone. Hopefully this will fix the issues.

    Server is back online!

    I could see a difference in responsiveness in the first 5 minutes. I noticed that the old router was quite hot compared to normal and that was with one radio not even enabled, so the old router was definitely having issues.

    At any rate, it was a good excuse to upgrade to 450mb wireless.

    Sending to up, or downloading?
    If it's on upload to you, I probably missed a throttle somewhere. LOL
    Still, it should be much better regardless. I gave to hand it to that old router, it worked flawless for years, and even as it died, it did so gracefully.

    This wireless for my computer is a TP-Link, and as cheap as it is it is the only one that I have had that as not failed: running three years strong. Though TP-Link wireless adapters are not very well supported on Linux systems, the driver is buggy.

    Cheap routers and me don't mix.


    Let's look at what I do typically.
    I run 2 laser printers (B&W and color), the build box (remote access and FTP), file server (with torrents, remote access and VPN), 2 desktops, 5 laptops, 2 cell phones, and 2 test benches for client computers.

    I used to use 250gigs of data in a slow month, and 500 on a busy one, with the build box, that has increased to 500 on a slow month and 750 on a high use month. 95% of people use less than 200.


    and now I'm getting ready to:
    Start streaming a webcam 24/7
    Add another web server to host half a dozen websites here, with as many as 500 people online at once and will add another 150gigs worth of data.

    Under far less load, I think the last one went 3 days before it's first lock up.

    And D-Link... Let's just say I would rather buy a Belkin after what I went through with the last one.

    If I had that much load on a router (all NAT'd I'm sure) I'd probably either (1) use a Linux or FreeBSD box. Probably a Soekris or similar. Or (2) get a low/mid end enterprise router.

    Seems to handle it all just fine so far.
    We will see later on, I'm hoping the web server will not be running through this router.

    If I do need one though, I have an old P3 900 that would function great as a router.

    The webcam will be streaming an owl box in the backyard. I did a robin's nest year before last.

    At any rate, there's not really anything exotic down there. It's a lot of equipment, and I guess a bit above what most people use, but it's nothing special, except maybe the file server or my old desktop case.


    Here is my file server.
    Hand made Oak, aluminum and plexi, 7.5in cube (smaller than the old G4 cubes and has the PSU inside), 2Terrabytes, 2gigs ram, gigabit ethernet. It uses a single fan, is dead silent and runs on 25 watts. The LED lighting can be dimmed or turned off.

    Anyone with Windows should really use cygwin as there ssh client in combo with repo and git and works very well. I'll put a package together for people to downlaod, it well be about a 170MB download size and around 700MB install size.
