Server upgrade

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

I finally did, what I should have done a long time ago. I upgraded my server. I added 256MB of memory so that it in total have 1GB. But more important I added a disk. After installing mythtv at home, my disk space is ever shrinking :-) And then I also took the time to redo my partitioning scheme using LVM for everything except / and /boot. The stats speak for them self

However I still can not justify doing raid at home as each disk consumes around 10W and I need at least 6 to make raid5 worthwhile IMHO. Instead  I have installed smartmon-tools and set it to run short tests every day at 24.00 execept saturday where it runs a long test. Hopefully this should be sufficient together with my backup scheme (which all people have, right!?)

See you around Natalie!

All good things come to an end! Today Natalie  left me and Henrik. A blog post about this is in order. Thanks for the patience and good training Natalie! I know that I got on your nerves at the end with my endless stream of questions. You have made me come a long way with openview in the last three months. Three months more and I’ll be on top of the product (7-9-13 ;-) ).

CU around and keep in touch!
