Works just fine on the machines I've tried. My suggestion at this point would be to just download the RubyGems source and build it yourself... I may have screwed up the tardist somehow. I'm trying to squeeze in some time to test a 1.8.6 build I did on the Onyx at work; I'll give the gem tardist anot...

Just use the logs - it outputs exactly the command lines SAM is using behind the scenes. Most screens within SAM also have a little GUI for 'tail' pointed at the appropriate log file in a nearby menu.

The shelves were originally manufactured by Xyratex. What you've got is a RAID shelf from a TP9100 1Gb/s storage system. You can read more in the wiki article I wrote here . The two requisite drives are used to store various configuration settings for the RAID array. The Mylex controller in these sh...

Somewhat true, but even then, I think that most people rather have the unidirectional bandwidth number, then assume they get the same in both directions, rather than add an unknown+unknown = total. Dividing by 2 isn't so bad. I can't remember the last time anyone I work with referred to the half-du...

I am sure there are examples, but in the most common application of networking it is moving something in one direction, and therefore this is really the relevant speed. It's true the most apps are asynchronous in nature, these days. However, any TCP service requires upstream bandwidth concurrently ...

We've found that GigE, in most situations, is not at all necessary when the switches are properly tuned for 100Mb. Untuned, our switches were getting 3-4 MB/s out of a 100Mb link. After a boatload of benchmarking and a bit of tuning, we're seeing upwards of 18MB/s out of the same link - close to ma...

Just FYI: There is no such thing as a GigE crossover. The standard requires MDI/MDI-X to autonegotiate the TX/RX pairs. Also, if you care in the least about actually *using* the bandwidth available to you, get yourself a switch that can disable autonegotiation and fix both ends to 100/1000 full-dupl...
