hows the 3750x working for you as a core switch? We killed those things with iscsi traffic. I wouldn't trust them beyond the access layer.
you could use some slack on that OM3 man.Just a couple of 3560G access switches in one of the smaller DC's i look after. Fibre port channels to a 3750x core stack.
Guess you didn't read my post... the company didn't want a patch panel
Material-wise, 6a does typically cost substantially more that 6. However, labor costs should be the same. Not sure how that would total out per-run for a professional install, but it shouldn't be 2x I'd think.
Given the additional cost, limitations, and lack of real benefit of 6 over 5e, it doesn't make sense to me to use it.
I have images for the disks as they came from the factory, so I have the LCDs working on both the Celestix and RSA 1Us. If you want a copy, I can upload it for you. Unfortunately I don't have a copy for this 2U, but I'll be working on that (this one runs 2008 instead of 2003, so not that straightforward).too bad celestix won't help you do anything with them.. tried to get info on driving the LCD on those RSA boxes and they were zero help...
Sorry for such a dumbass question, but whats so special about 3PAR. I keep seeing them more and more, tried to look at them but still can't figure out what their claim to fame is
Just another remote site I have been working on, it's pretty much finished now.
Does the job.
Below: Some old servers/hardware being retired. Replaced with new HP Gen 8's and HP 3PAR.
Our new core infrastructure (servers)
2x ESX Hosts
1x Backup Server with 30Tb Disk Tray
HP 3PAR 7200
3PAR doesn't use RAID in the common sense that you add drives to the array. They use chunklets and RAID across the chunklets. You never have a hot spare/global spare drive. You have spare chunklets on all drives. You can set them to be available where when they are grouped, you can lose an entire cage, magazine, port, etc.
I work with several 3PAR arrays (in the double digits) and with the technology in them and just amount of brainpower that went in to design them is really pretty slick.
Nice! What commands are you sending to RRDtool and how did you set it up? I tried so hard to get that to work and failed. It seems really confusing to use and the documentation is not all that great. If I could figure it out I could get my monitoring app to use that instead of rolling my own with libpng. Though I might also do like I did for this site: http://www.uogateway.com/ (click on any shard entry to see graphs) The graphs arn't as nice though but I could make them better.
Oh so this is part of Cacti? I thought they were just being manually generated with RRDtool. I want to incorporate graphs in my custom monitoring app. Though I think Cacti is open source I can always check how they do it. Worse case scenario I can always make my app feed all the data to Cacti but I want it self contained as I will eventually release it to the public.
Observium looks like an interesting app too.
Use Observium or Cacti. (I prefer Observium myself) It'll give you graphs like this:
Some core gear just racked in my new DC. Cisco Nexus 7710, and a pair of Nexus 6001's on top of that. Above that is a 2901 for oob console access and a 3850 for misc. connectivity. The other half of the core of the DC is on the other side of the room. Not pictured are 40 Nexus 5548's and 32 2248 FEX's. 7710's are missing several F3 modules since they just started shipping.
About time someone posted something worth looking at. What modules will the 7710 be populated with? What is the line of business?
Took possession of my new house last week, started installing gear. Have a Juniper SRX, Ubiquiti APs, APC UPS, and a few other goodies to go in yet. Will also be rebuilding my home theater, and doing some home automation, so lots of work to do.
