Servers again

Since people seem to enjoy seeing our hardware (server pron), I thought I'd show our current setup again. I'll start at the bottom of our rack.

This is a pic with a few things. First, it's got the white system, which is our memcache box. Just your basic setup (dual dual-core opterons, mirrored 250gig SATA drives, and 32gigs of RAM) for temporary storage of blocks of output. Above it is our Breach WebDefend appliance. I'm not sure the specs (dual quads and 4 gigs of RAM I think), but since it's sold as an appliance it doesn't really matter. Last in this pic are 3 APC power management boxes. Since quite a few of our devices only have one power supply, this allows us to plug them all in to both power sources in case of an outage.

Continuing on up the line, we have one of our oldest servers. We call it www1, although being a www server isn't something it does any more. It basically runs cron jobs on its dual xeon processors with 8gigs of RAM and mirrored 80gig SA…

Need to defrag?

Somehow, it seems I need to defrag my system.

I'm not sure I had seen one this bad before. Yay, me.
