I like how a 24 core Opteron with 64 GB is “old” :) Speaking of power, a shame Prox doesn’t have power consumption in the UI
Yeah, we’re living in a throw-it-away society… just because something is “old” (in this case about 4 years), doesn’t mean to throw it away.
The backstory is that we tried to sell the machine for a minimum of 2000€, but without any warranty or valid support contract no one had any interest. So we decided to use this thing for ourselfs.
As for the power consumption display in Proxmox: This isn’t a problem, as all Perl sources are available (by a fair license) and they’re using standard RRD-files. It won’t be a problem to integrate that feature.
After 3 Weeks of testing, ProxmoxVE is finally running on a production server. It’s an “old” Dell PowerEdge R715 (2x12 core, 64GB RAM), which a friend of mine got cheap from his employer. A very nice machine :)
As soon as it is installed at a Colocation-Provider, I’ll buy the Community-Subscription of Proxmox (about 10€ per month) to support further development. I’m very confident with the features, user interface and their free support-wiki.
Using only one of the two redundant power supplies, power consumption is within acceptable limits (below 150 Watts). As soon as you plug in the second PSU, the consumption doubles according to IPMI/iDRAC - I don’t know why, because by physical laws both PSUs must share the consumption equally (plus a little power dissipation)…
Both PSUs are 1100 Watt units - because of redundancy a single one is capable to supply enough power. As power consumption is critical (it’s the most expensive part of colocation), I’ll go with one PSU at the moment.
The CIA’s European Division has halted its operations in Western Europe in response to several spying scandals in Germany and the continent’s negative reaction to the revelations of spying by the National Security Agency on European leaders and citizens.
*MUHAHAHA* *ROFL* *LOOOOL* That’s a joke, isn’t it? I don’t believe a word of what they officially say.
Research suggests that family violence is two to four times higher in the law-enforcement community than in the general population. So where’s the public outrage?
After Munich 1972 - which hit german police forces completely unprepared - they established GSG9. Chancellor Helmut Schmidt was in charge at the time, he was a cool, feets on the bottom, rational type.
