  1. When it comes to samba performance on android, I've not been able to get any better speeds than you. I don't think it's a problem you can fix.
  2. Make sure QoS is off, make sure DPI is off, make sure HW offloading for everything is on. Though the X is a poor choice, I would at least go with an EdgeRouter Lite.
  3. Most of this is false. A game doesn't "pull memory" from a hard drive. And issues with registry are unlikely if the setup is done properly. To execute a game, the operating system will load the binary into RAM. In order to do that, the operating system will fetch it using it's own layers of abstraction that allows it to treat network filesystems like local ones, especially solutions like iSCSI. When an iSCSI disk is mounted, to all programs on the computer it appears as any other disk and is able to access it using the same filesystem API as it does for local disks.
  4. @leadeater @dalekphalm I'm curious since I am helping someone build a ZFS array right now. I have a few questions. First of all, I might add I don't care about ECC or non ECC, to me it makes no sense to argue over it. But I am curious about the behaviour of the filesystem itself, how it can be bottlenecked by certain types of loads and how it will deal with those bottlenecks. If someone can provide or link to a good explanation of different kinds of loads on the filesystem and how it stresses resources, then a mythical rule of thumb won't be necessary. So if one of you ca
  5. If you want your traffic to be encrypted so that your ISP cannot view it, you need to control a node outside of your ISP network and make a secure connection to that. Then give people the address to that node (a VPS for example) and ask them to connect to that instead. What you should do is forward all the traffic on those ports on the node to your home through a VPN connection. That way, all traffic from you would go through that node before it leaves to go anywhere else on the internet, and all traffic from the internet would go to that node and travel through a encrypted link
  6. I personally prefer nginx, it's usually faster and easier to configure.
  7. I stay away from infiniband entirely, getting IP over infiniband is spotty. And as above, drivers are usually a pain or don't exist at all.
  8. Pretty much anything running on x86 will work better with fq_codel, the EdgeRouters have a very low power MIPS chip in them.
  9. To add to this, the QoS basically removes the ability to run HW offloading as it manages queues in software, you'll basically get 80-100Mbit/s speeds using QoS. Though I really doubt that you'll need any kind of QoS on a gigabit line.
  10. The larger flash is not just an advantage, but a requirement. The ER-X can't even update successfully because of how tiny that flash is.
  11. Personally I want a homelab thread, where people can actually explain and show off their systems/clusters and networks. That's when I'll bother posting my stuff.
  12. Click each partition and click delete. Then you will have one item left (called "Unallocated Space" or something similar), then just select it and click next.
  13. The storage server is designed to be functional standalone and also somewhat portable (as portable as several Us of rackmount gear can be). The virtualisation servers run a whole lot more VMs running many services. The connection between me and looney isn't great, but the most important services are HA and failover. I'll work on a network diagram for me and @looney when were done with most of the work.
