BuyVM Slabs Build log! [Hardware Porn]


#41

Legit, a single drive.

We let them all badblock fully and no problems minus a single drive having a big chunk of it toast.

I actually restarted badblocks a few times to make sure I was running it properly since I was confused how we had no bad drives until the literal last batch.

Damn, gotta start buying more HGST Enterprise… just need to find some good vendors.


#43

Just in time to have some porn!


#44

Umm ,did not see the date.


#45

We’re not sticklers for necros/bumping old threads. So as long as it’s relevant, have at it! :slight_smile:


#46

It feels like I watch a old porn finally find the actress is older than my grandma.


#47

I suppose that’s better than finding out the actress is your grandma :stuck_out_tongue:

this thread is taking a strange turn lol


#48

Or you can combine the two, and the actress is actually your great-grandmother.


#49

Only one out of 216 drives?


#50

Yup.

I didn’t believe it but badblocks is pretty heavy/destructive.

What software/specs are you using for storage? One big JBOD with Raid, or glusterfs?


#52

We have 3 hardware RAID10 volumes per node.

What we’re using to merge it all into a neat little package i’m keeping close to the heart :stuck_out_tongue:

Let me guess:

  • Something free/low-cost. Software like GPFS is too expensive for clouds
  • It can do FUSE and is very high performance
  • It’s not some half-broken unmaintained software
  • It does not require separate metadata servers

If I didn’t forget anything, those requirements basically boil down to the following:

  • Scality RING
  • MAPR FS
  • GlusterFS
  • XtreemFS

I bet on Scality, but seems like we will never get this information from you :slight_smile:


#54

I’m not sure but I do somewhat remember him mentioning GlusterFS


#55

Helllll naw.

#56

Glad to see you made it to HostBalls =]

I’m more interested in your flooring however, that’s hardwood right? I got cheap laminate, lol


#57

Your nick name doesn’t disappoint. Everything according to God’s plan.


#58

Since this was of some urgency, I already PM’ed @Francisco about it, but since everyone else needs to know…


#59

What’s wrong with it?


#60

There is only one drive tray out of all of them with a label.
