|karsten||bwlang: Depends on what you've got. Care to budget me swapping out a few hundred v20zs / v40zs?|
bwlang: ... oh yeah, with 12 - 128 GB RAM.
|karsten||bwlang: ... OK, 128 GB *isn't* a v*z, but we provision 'em fat here.|
|bwlang||no no no... i have no interest.... my biggest machines are about 32- 64G of ram... but with machine that expensive you can afford to buy fancy remote kvm stuff.|
|hatter||128 Gb RAM ?|
google servers ?
hatter: Yeah, we ran into a problem with our default installer.
|karsten||hatter: ... it likes to provision 2xRAM as swap.|
|karsten||hatter: ... system only had a 70GB drive at the time.|
|hatter||nice ram drive....|
|karsten||Solution: Remove 100 GB of RAM....|
how is that ram supplied ?
|bwlang||on pallets ;)|
|karsten||hatter: In spades ;-)|
|hatter||massive cards with banks ?|
not in a race car ;)
|Guerin||mm, i want a game of cards|
i wonder if we can scare up one more player
|PupenoR||is there anything like the net weasel card, but cheaper? 40% of the price of the server in that card is too much.|
|karsten||hatter: That particular system was multiproc, possibly 8 procs w/ 16GB banks each.|
PupenoR: I'm not sure they're even still in production. Page/site are dated 2001.
|hatter||karstenL for what function ?|
|karsten||PupenoR: Big news was providing a PCI (rather than ISA) model.|
|karsten||hatter: _not_ weather prediction.|
|PupenoR||karsten: yeah :(|
|hatter||fox had a show recently on the earth simulator, the 2nd or 3rd largest supercomputer at the moment|
there;s a building the same size next to it.... that is the airconditioner
|abrotman||PupenoR: serial console!|
|bwlang||PupenoR: i use hacom boxes as firewalls at my remote sites... you could easily rig one to allow ssh access and serial line access to the real server.|
