  1. And I need to find a way to migrate my current install. I turned 3x 8TB into a 16TB raid-5 BTRFS array, and am somewhere around 8.5-9TB in use. I thought I had a lot of headroom, but if the tools won't work...
  2. Oh <edit: expletive actually deleted>. umm, do you have a source for that?
  3. I wonder if it's more a matter of where are the sensors mounted relative to the fans. The sensors only tell the story at a very specific point in space, after all. The helios board itself is placed in the back half of the enclosure. With reversed (intake) fans, you're blowing external cool air directly on the board. With standard (exhaust) fans, you're pulling internal air that's been preheated by the HD's, across the board.
  4. OrangePi 3 uses the Allwinner H6 chip... and the issue is, basically, AllWinner (deliberately?) messed up the hardware implementation. From the wiki: http://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_mainlining_effort#Status_Matrix
  5. Yeah, no tracking number here either. My order just appeared via local courier on Monday. They said they'd have an OS image up by (last) Wednesday, but nothing yet.
  6. FYI, the Kickstarter rewards are starting to arrive.
  7. 5.1 RC4 just landed. The release notes have all been pretty calm, so I'm going to guess it'll only go to RC7 Figure 3 more weeks for 5.1, a 2 week merge window, and potentially 8 weeks for 5.2... so ~3 months puts us end of June / beginning of July
  8. heh, sorry, I mean that the neo2 has no wifi. It's a ethernet-only board, and (without breaking out the pin header) only one usb-A port soldered. The neo plus 2 might be closer to what you're looking for, but it's not a board I have. Should be very, very similar in performance though.
  9. Sorry, I missed the part about where you need wifi. In that case, I really can't recommend it unless you're using a USB dongle with proper antenna.
  10. I'm running wireguard on a pair of nanopi neo2's, and iperf is giving me >200mbps throughput at ~40% load
  11. I think you're looking for the h3consumption tool that allows/allowed you to turn on/off various peripheral support to control power usage. The issue isn't that it's tied to the version of userspace (eg. stretch), but rather that it only worked with the legacy (3.4.x) kernel
  12. I had to change the entry in my /etc/nsswitch.conf to include "mdns4_minimal" in the "hosts: " line so it would resolve blahblah.local addresses
  13. That's what happens when I don't fact-check what I think I know. You're right, I've somehow merged the 10 & 100 spaces into a fictional space that only exists in my head. The $500 fee was also for STATIC ip addresses, not necessarily public, eg https://www.verizonwireless.com/businessportals/support/faqs/DataServices/faq_static_ip.html Sorry for the misinformation. I'll go back to doing server stuff and leave the troubleshooting to the support guys.
  14. On a 4G connection (or cellular in general) you're often going to be in a private address space. It's usually the 10.100.x.x 'carrier grade nat' reserved space, but varies by carrier. Some carriers will allow you to apply for a public address for your sim card, but there's often a one-time setup fee (last time I ran across it, it was $500 usd setup per account not per sim). If you really need a publically routable IP for your device/servers and can't relocate your services offsite, I'd suggest you spin up a cloud instance on one of the major providers (AWS, DigitalOcean, Azure, etc) and use it as a private VPN endpoint.
  15. Oh heck no, they don't even tell you that the overseas links are capped. Then again, it's like.. ~$21 USD? and there's a waiting list for available fibre ports in most of the major building estates. There's also dual, quad and a useless 10 Gbps plan available. Why anyone would want 10 individual 1 gb links in a residential location beats me. If I were going to be crazy like that, I'd rather a single 10gbps link that I can plug into an SFP+ port.
