Have been thinking about adding a ZIL or L2ARC but performance is OK for now, mostly idle.
VMs for pihole, aptmirror, ansible, onlyoffice, nextcloud, jitsi, plex, pxeboot, wiki and a few others
Hosting some silly things like: https://zaggy.nl/netherlands/
Am slowly poking away at automated installation through pxeboot.
I uh also am in need of a noise dampening server rack enclosure something, it’s currently sitting in my attic on some carton boxes with fans in desktop mode, not too noisy until it gets busy, will take off then.
Have looked at apc netshelter mini and equivalents but they’re expensive, I could try to DIY something myself?
Am interested to see how you’d deploy the caches for Steam/Blizzard/Origin downloads.
@Wendell Great video! I love your hardware/ZFS/GODMODE stuff.
How did you get the steamcache at 10Gbps? I might have blacked out due to the awesomness of the video , was it a network component?
You guys really inspired me in the original video to get my own steamcache going, but right now my Internet speed is faster than my LAN connection lol. Getting 10Gbps would be awesome. I actually got the steamcache going with Docker containers. It was too easy, I didn’t think it worked
lol just some dnshackery + docker and thats it. LITERALLY IT
they even have an example script to show you what the cache is doing. be warned however you have some fiddling to do to get the blizzard/etc cache to work correctly
