I had the chance to work with the summit24 switches, and I personally liked them. It is straight-forward in my opinion for the Web Interface compared to others I have seen and the pricing seems to be reasonable.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with any of their switching devices.
Having a slight problem working with one of our Extreme Summit 48 (ugh) switches - I've figured out most of the basics, but I can't seem to find any way to add a secondary IP address to a VLAN! This, I would have thought, would be a pretty basic feature to have. Typing "config vlan [vlanname] ipaddress 18.104.22.168/24" works for setting the primary IP, but I can't figure out how to add any more - and doing the command again just overwrites the first one.
So... does anyone have any tricks up their sleeve, or is this something that Extreme neglected to add to this model switch?
I work for a company with a highly trafficked site (about 100,000 unique daily visitors). We have our "MANAGED" hosting through Rackspace for quite the pretty penny per month. It includes a dedicated back end / DB server and cloud servers for the front end.
The setup has been functioning perfect for 10 months now; but this past Monday the speed of the site immediately dropped. Page load times fell from 1-2 seconds to between 10-20 seconds, and sometimes not at all. As far as we know (and as far as Rackspace says), no server setting were modified. No new code was introduced on our end. It's a mainly static site, with minimal user interaction with the backend at all.
We've monitored the traffic, checked IPs, etc. We've even tunes down several site features in the interest of reducing server load. Upon a server reboot, the active threads/processes running on it IMMEDIATELY jump back up to maxed out levels. It seems like once our daily traffic reaches 10MB/s, a type of queue forms and the delays begin. Rackspace assures us that we're not limited to that.
Versions: OS: cent OS on cloud OS: Redhat on Dedicated Server Apache: 2.2 PHP: 5.3 / MySQL: 5.1.69
Some more background info: The site is typically busiest from 7am until 3pm EST. For the past few days, we've noticed that between 7am and 9-10pm the server has just lagged incredibly. However, at around that 9-10pm mark, something changes and the pages go back to loading almost instantly. (There is still decent traffic though.) Then at around 7am again it slows to a crawl.
Rackspace has offered solutions such as spinning up another server and incorporating their load balancing - they are in the process of this BUT they do NOT think the traffic is the issue. At one point they actually said there was potential packet loss somewhere in the network, but no progress has been made.
I am building an advanced network in a big building which will be used by desktop/printers and backend thin servers, which requires high-available network and consume high bandwidth all this thru categorie 6 cables (RJ-45).
The idea is to build different path with optical fibers and to connect each part of the building with it's own optical fiber to the server room (where we run Microsoft company network servers, SAN, backup, and external access) using a 10/100/1000 switch and optical fiber for long distance.
So I though about using switches which have at least :
48 ports 10/100/1000 (auto negociation) 4 ports 10 gE
for now I will not use many features but with time I could create some trunk, and use some advanced *routing* (switching) features.
As the budget is also not unlimited, I thought about buying :
Edge switch : § HP ProCurve 2900-48G J9050A [url]
with X2 extension HP ProCurve 10-GbE X2-SC SR Optic J8436A [url]
Core switch : § HP ProCurve 6400cl J8433A [url]
As I am studying any network vendor (but not such as 3com, netgear, dlink, linksys), but more such as HP, Extreme, Cisco, Foundry I am opended to your model ideas for me needs!
I just stumbled across mention of bonding two NICs to serve as one. (E.g., 100Mbps NIC + 100Mbps NIC = 'virtual' 200 Mbps NIC, as far as everything on the network is concerned.)
I'd been familiar with the concept for quite some time, but I guess I never really thought it through until just now...
How does this work with switches? It seems to me that the answer should be a flat, "It doesn't." But it seems that it does work. How does the switch merrily map an IP to two different ports? Do the two NICs maintain their MACs? (Wouldn't two MACs to one IP cause even more problems?)
Not looking to buy another switch but we have a crapshoot of switches around. Dell 5448,
HP 2910 and a Cisco 3560.
I'd like to keep the the Cisco back in HQ stock since it's a POE switch.
We are colocating just 1 SAN intially. Max of maybe 7-8 Servers total in the future. Not alot of bandwidth and doing L2 traffic only. Any issues with either the Dell or HP in the colo environment from a production standpoint. We have used a couple of Procurves in our environment, and the dell switches were freebies that were part of our last order.
Basically, it would look like this
ASA5510 serving as main headed VPN
2 Branch Offices connecting to it
One L2 Switch. 2 - 3 Seperate Vlans with a trunk port back out to the ASA5510
We're ready to setup 3-4 42U racks for servers and are in need of choosing Ethernet switches. What do you guys use and why?
I'm looked at Cisco switches, but lost in their product forest. I'm looked at Express 500, 2960 and 3750-E models. Is there any more difference (in exception of stacking, cli and hot-swap fan/psu) that I need to consider? Prices differentiate too much.
I'm also looked at Linksys/D-Link business products and they seems to have the same features as Cisco Express series, but only 50% cheaper.
I was checking out the switch products from Cisco and I noticed that there is quite a few products that been discounted, and I am trying to find correct switches that does traffic shaping on port for inbound and outbound.
I preferred they are 48 ports with 2 Gigabit uplinks, with Enterprise L3 image and it is little difficult to find the correct older models that is being sold on ebay to pick up the correct one.
I am also open to Extreme and Foundry switches as well, but I rather like to stick to one type for deployment, since I am working on the plan to deploy 2 core switches which all edge switches will hook into it.
I'm using Awardspace right now, but cannot say that I'm completely happy with them, mostly because of the downtime issues. It is up pretty much 99% of the time as they claim, but there are some issues with mysql database latency which from time to time make my site inaccessible, even thought the server is actually up.
Anybody else using this service ?
I'm talking about Awarspace paid, not free service
I search VPS with DirectAdmin and Debian Etch 4.0 based on Xen technology.
It's serious xenEurope?
Why use hardware enterprise class for the vps machines?
Where VPS per nodes?
I have realized ping in this web xenEurope, the results:

I have found Hostnine hosting company! These guys seems to provide the most suitable conditions for my future website, could you please leave your opinions about this company if you have ever had a deal with them!
i would like some advice on getting a domain and a website ..ok now iv done a bit of research and read some articles about keyword and all and i do have a domain name in mind but dont really know if it would be sussesfull so i want ur opinion the name is (URL address blocked: See forum rules) - or it could be .com.au it dosent matter ...both of them are avalible.and the site i would be looking at putting on it would really just be a bit of a personal site ...with forum and chats and a bit of stuff about me and where im from ...so what do u guys think would that be great or not?
