  1. Strange performance problem

    I have a server installed with the latest prox. It's not top of the line box. About every 4-5 min. The I/O delay goes up to 50%+ for about 10-20 seconds, then back down again. The server has 16*300 GB sas drives in a raid 10, 32 GB Ram and 16 cores. We tried swapping out the raid card - no...
  2. NFS Share - Cant see in Web Console but works in SSH

    Could be a number of things. Did you check the logs to see if it's something like no CIFS support installed on the proxmox box? Did you login to the Prox server itself and try mounting the SMB share directly? Does it mount? What we did a while back was replace a Windows server with...
  3. Proxmox and Rocket Raid 2642

    Unless you are having problems with the current driver and a specific fix is in the change log, I wouldn't bother. If it's not broke....
  4. Assign some hard disks to a OpenVz CT

    That server probably has a Perc 5i or 6i. It has an LSI chip and will be much faster than individual disks. Setup raid 0 on the controller if you don't care about the data, but I would use raid 10. Saves you from reinstalling if a disk blows up. I have the exact same machine with the same...
  5. Proxmox and Rocket Raid 2642

    I compiled it and it works fine. You will need to install the kernel source and dev tools to compile it.apt-get update && apt-get install build-essential libtool linux-source linux-kernel-headersDownload the driver source from...
  6. need help installing on a raid 5

    That looks like a Promise controller chip on that card you returned. That is software raid for sure. Take a look at ebay for cheap 3ware cards. They are hardware raid.http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=3ware+9500&_sacat=See-All-Categories
  7. KVM IO delays

    Run "apt-get update" first, then run apt-get -f install to fix the install issues.You can tune a few settings to get a little better performance. Try setting the fs readahead using blockdev --setra 4096 /dev/sd?.You cannot expect high performance from slower sata disks with no raid controller...
  8. bnx2 Can't load firmware file

    When installing squeeze, the installer asks if you want to load the missing firmware from external storage (USB Stick). If you bypass that, the firmware has to be loaded manually. It's a pain to do later. My advice is the reinstall and load the firmware from a USB stick. I have done this on IBM...
