Primary Nekoware Mirror Upgraded

Unread postby dclough » Fri Oct 05, 2012 12:16 pm

Just got back from the datacenter. The primary mirror has been moved from the old dual Xeon box to a later-generation dual quad-core Xeon E5345 server.

Most importantly, the server now has a full gigabit uplink. Between the new SAS-based storage and the bump to a full gig, there's plenty of bandwidth to go around. Now I just have to find a use for it!

Since this is a new box I had to configure everything from scratch. Please test your connection to the mirror (nekoware.dustytech.net) over HTTP and rsync, and let me know if you encounter any issues. Enjoy!

Do you have any statistics? My mirror is far away from needing a gigabit connection. The utilization of my Origin 300 looks like that:

Code: Select all

And the network connection viewed from the switch looks like this:

Resolves fine from a few hundred miles north of you:

Code: Select all

vishnu@starhunter:~$ whois dustytech.net | grep --ignore-case -A 5 "domain servers"
   Domain servers in listed order:
      NS1.HE.NET
      NS2.HE.NET
      NS3.HE.NET
      NS4.HE.NET
      NS5.HE.NET
Traceroute seems to get lost at kcmodatacenter.com though:

And the network connection viewed from the switch looks like this:

No utilization statistics except some webserver logs and MRTG. I don't run MRTG on the server interfaces but have access to the central datacenter MRTG. I'll occasionally see brief spikes at 25-30Mbps every now and then, but rarely anything sustained beyond a few minutes. I might set up some more detailed system performance logs when I get a chance.

$#!% that's fast. And consistent.
