I currently use a half cabinet and think I'm paying way too much. I pay $1,000/month for half rack (10 meg bandwidth) 20 amps power, etc. Service and connectivity has been great (Ashburn, VA data center) but I think it's just over priced.
What should I pay for half cab, 20 amps, 5-10 MEG bandwidth, 20 amps?
On that note, what if I was to go for a full cabinet solution, same power and bandwidth, what is ultimately the expected price for a reputable colo provider?
I use APC Netshelter cabinets now; I have a need for some cabinets with 23-inch wide rails, capable of holding telco muxes, rectifiers, batteries, etc. Any suggestions on cabinet?
Something that would blend in with APC Netshelters (black, bowed/curved door on cold aisle) would be nice. I know I've seen a cabinet very similar to Netshelter delivered from NetApp, but with a grey/off-black color, and 1-piece door on the hot aisle. If APC is just sourcing their cabinets from some manufacturer who takes engineering requests, it would be great to find out who makes them.
I'm planning to move my co-located server to a cabinet soon. We are adding dedicated web & database servers to take the load off of the main box. I will get one GigE drop in this cabinet, so obviously I need a switch.
No routing is needed on my end, so my guess is that the regular GigE switch would do just fine. But I have few concerns about my setup.
All of my servers have dual GigE port. My plan is to connect one to the internet, and another to a local private lan for SMB, database, SNMP, and such. Jumbo frame is enabled on a private lan.
Is there any 16-port switch that allows me to assign 8 ports into one virtual switch (1500-byte frame) and another 8 into another virtual switch (9000-byte frame) ?
On the internet side, I expect to be pushing around 300-400mbps, a bit higher on the private lan. I need a very stable switch that won't choke or crash at this rate.
I'd also like to be able to limit throughput on each port, and probably do port/ip filtering on this switch instead of iptables on each box. (Am I asking too much for a switch?)
When looking at the 1U's, I have to search really long and hard trying to find a half-decent host. A lot of companies skimp on something when offering colo, and makes for a bad day when that particular service is needed.
On the other hand, I see a lot of colocation offers for great deals on Cabinets and half Cabinets. High, premium bandwidth, PLENTY of amps, top of the line support, etc. It would be tempting to go for these, except I only have a single unit server.
I was going to give up on finding a good colo, then I got an idea. What if I got together a few other people, we all pitched in for our slice of a cabinet, and bring the price well within reasonable limits for those of us with low demands?
Would it be too difficult to do something like this? If you run across this topic and are looking for colo, would you be willing to give this a shot?
I am getting a full 42U, and have option for 2 post rack and 4 posts cabinet. Meanwhile I know 4 posts cabinet is more secure, but the vendor is good enough, and the difference in price is around $150/month, which one should I use?
Code: root@host [/tmp]# df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 10153988 406444 9223428 5% / /dev/sda8 1019208 900620 65980 94% /tmp how is that possible ls -hl shows thats the space used is 92kb while df shows 65980 94% for /tmp
/var seems to be almost full but the server has only been up a couple of days. Note that the only file that seems large is /named/chroot/proc/kcore but that is not really supposed to take any disk space ... it obviously is. Does anybody know what I should do to free up space here?
Once ago you people solved my problem, now once again i am here to get some suggestion from you since i could not find anyone else for help.
I have another server (Which is not under Your Management subscription), its /tmp DRIVE is 100% full.
I have 2 scripts which are same as "RapidShare.de or megaupload" FREE FILE HoSTING scripts... they use space in /tmp my /tmp is 496 Mb.
Because its full 100% so files are no more uploadable via scripts. So my scripts are not funsctioning at the moment.
So i thought to get a suggestion from you people
is that possible to increase the size of /tmp ? like to 20 GB etc or if NOT than could you please tell how to empty /tmp folder (coz i think all files in /tmp used by SCRIPTS are USELESS after the USER uploads or downloads the data.) so could you please suggest..
my /var is full any idea what to delete root@host [/var]# du -sh * 12K account 16K aquota.user 13M cache 188M cpanel 28K db 32K empty 8.0K games 73M lib 8.0K local 32K lock 35M log 16K lost+found 4.0K mail 7.5G named 8.0K nis 8.0K opt 4.0K portsentry 8.0K preserve 92K profiles 12K quota.user 8.0K racoon 900K run 6.5M spool 8.7M tmp 24K yp root@host [/var]# --- even i can move named folder if some one guide how to move and change the path in conf because i dont no the location of conf files etc
