[05:40:51] <Baughn> Here's something which has been happening lately: http://ix.io/1xKm
[05:41:31] <Baughn> I get minute-long stalls on every sync, unless with sync=disabled. This happens even immediately after a previous sync, with no write pressure.
[05:43:11] <Baughn> The only likely commonalties is it happens on NixOS (which describes all my systems), and Zen 1 AMD (Ditto). I'm not sure where to even start debugging this one -- where is it even hanging? I don't see any ZFS coffee in the stack trace.

[07:19:06] <chesty> I'm running zfs only, no network filesystems , the usual virtual filesystems like tmpfs and sysfs, some by docker and snap. after I first boot, df -h works fine, then sometime later, df -h hangs with 100% cpu, it's in the R state, kill -KILL'ing it doesn't kill it either, it's still in R at 100% cpu. I've seen processes in an uninterruptible sleep
[07:19:07] <chesty> before, but they turn to Z from memory or D. stracing it doesn't print anything to the screen and strace becomes unkillable. I doubt it's a zfs issue, more likely usb (there's a zfs filesystem on usb) or something else, but how do I debug it? I figure someone here might know?
[07:23:36] <ptx0> don't use usb
[07:24:02] <ptx0> universally shitty b us
[07:27:17] <chesty> actually now that I think about it, I've never had this problem before and I recently upgraded to kernel 4.18
[07:28:09] <chesty> ok, so use is bad, but how do I confirm it's usb? I guess I can just unplug it and see if they die, but there must be a better way
[07:29:24] <ptx0> kernel logs?

[09:15:50] <FinalX> hm, I created both of my SSD pools with normalization=formD, but my nas pool doesn't have it. I transferred my LXC dataset with its children back and forth pools sometimes and now it's normalization=- while the rest of the pool is normalization=formD. as it's a readonly property, what's the best way to go about fixing it up to be formD again? tried zfs receive -o normalization=formD, but it just throws me
[09:15:51] <FinalX> "invalid property"
[09:15:59] <FinalX> will rsync be my only friend, or is there another way?
[09:16:55] <FinalX> don't even know how this happened, a dataset with normalization=- while the rest is all formD from the pool up

[12:23:27] <ptx0> woahw
[12:25:44] <ptx0> i linked it
[12:26:01] <DeHackEd> regarding your last incrmental scrub comment: the same issues with not doing scrubs still apply. failure of disk 1 may be undetected when a read is issued to disk 2, or just that recently written data will probably be in the ARC and not hit disks at all
[12:26:14] <ptx0> i know
[12:26:43] <DeHackEd> I still agree the whole thread is stupid
[12:27:17] <ptx0> ml35 reminds me of a child who constantly says they want to help in the kitchen and keep knocking shit over and spilling flour while saying they're gonna help
[12:27:49] <ptx0> well intentioned, but
[12:28:51] <ptx0> the whole feature request thing seems kinda entitled
[12:29:13] <ptx0> if you want the code, hire someone to write it or do it yourself
[12:29:45] <ptx0> and they submit a LOT of feature requests without ever submitting any work toward getting it done
[12:34:17] *** amospalla <amospalla!~amospalla@unaffiliated/amospalla> has joined #zfsonlinux
[12:36:59] <ptx0> seriously
[12:37:08] <ptx0> they only really submit feature requests
[12:50:39] <blackflow> ptx0: can you link it again please? I've just read through the entire backlog (since I asked about L2 misunderstanding) and there's no link. There's also no "told you 5 times", but only once, without a highlight: "21:59 < ptx0> use kstat analyzer"
[12:51:38] <ptx0> you already re-linked it
[12:52:05] <blackflow> ptx0: I see, thanks.
[12:54:04] <PMT> chesty: if you're still around, things like perf top might be useful. also depending on which 4.18 it may be on fire.
[12:54:54] <ptx0> there
[12:54:59] <ptx0> i closed most of ml35's issues
[12:55:37] <PMT> we noticed
[12:56:01] <ptx0> felt particularly good to smeash the fuck out of #4814
[12:58:03] <ptx0> the funny thing there is that "it is a burden to remember" thing
[12:58:14] <ptx0> then brian wants to have the option but not be default
[12:58:30] <ptx0> so they will be setting the prefix on every system they run into, anyway... having to remember that..
[13:04:22] <blackflow> speaking of 4814, DeHackEd said " we also follow a few Solaris conventions by defaulting to refuse to mount into non-empty directories by default.". Sounds like default. What (if anything) should I look into to change this? I'm forced to use legacy mounts because systemd tempfiles or something else fills-in /var and /tmp with stuffs before zfs mounting service gets going
[13:04:42] <ptx0> dear god don't separate out /var
[13:04:46] <ptx0> and /tmp should be tmpfs
[13:05:08] <bunder> yet we still have 955 open tickets
[13:05:11] <ptx0> there's some madness you have to do with systemd units to make it work
[13:05:17] <blackflow> technically I'm not splitting out /var, but /var/log and /var/tmp
[13:05:33] <blackflow> everything else is part of rpool. I want to avoid logs being rolled back with root, in case I need to
[13:05:33] <ptx0> yeah, don't do that
[13:05:42] <ptx0> just clone root
[13:05:45] <ptx0> don't roll it back
[13:06:09] <blackflow> I'm following advice I inherited from FreeBSD and their ZFS devs. Something different about this in ZoL?
[13:06:15] <bunder> i split tmp vartmp and varlog /shrug
[13:06:23] <ptx0> yeah our init system is not that well integrated
[13:06:32] <blackflow> even if I clone it, /var/log would show the old (pre-snapshot) data
[13:06:39] <ptx0> duh
[13:06:45] <ptx0> but the original is untouched
[13:06:51] <ptx0> rollback destroys the new snapshots.
[13:07:21] <blackflow> mkay, anyway, since that comment suggests a configurable default, what should I look into, to allow mounts on non-empty dirs? Is that even wise? I really hate legacy mountpoints but I have to do them.
[13:07:54] <ptx0> #3186
[13:08:03] <ptx0> don't do it
[13:08:55] <ptx0> just do what everyone else does and run an actual log collection daemon that stores things somewhere else
[13:09:40] <blackflow> I do. The server that receives the logs stores them under /var/log.
[13:10:34] <blackflow> But I see that issue. I think I've hit it as well, filesystem saying it's mounted but it wasn't.
[13:11:49] <ptx0> yeah but when it's /var
[13:11:55] <ptx0> the problem is particularly fun
[13:11:59] <blackflow> and I see the answer to my question is the "overlay" property, so thanks.
[13:12:11] <ptx0> that's the thing you shouldn't do.
[13:12:18] <blackflow> Understood. I see there are issues.
[13:12:18] <ptx0> it's like turning on dedup
[13:13:41] <blackflow> And thanks for the cloning vs rollback advice. One of those details you don't think about until you come across them.
[13:20:12] <ptx0> i basically never rollback
[13:20:16] <ptx0> it is very dangerous
[13:20:35] <ptx0> i clone, verify, promote, destroy the original
[13:20:58] *** metallicus <firstname.lastname@example.org> has joined #zfsonlinux
[13:24:23] <hyper_ch2> ptx0: promote?
[13:24:33] <ptx0> ?
[13:24:38] <ptx0> man zfs
[13:25:06] <hyper_ch2> ah, that's an actual zfs subcommand :)
[13:25:21] <DeHackEd> there are many of them, and growing every time an encryption bugfix goes in
[13:25:22] <DeHackEd> :)
[13:25:33] <DeHackEd> (joke)
[13:35:38] <blackflow> ptx0: makes sense to do that, yes.
[13:37:27] <ptx0> i don't buy that a feature requires delegation support to be considered valid
[13:37:48] <ptx0> if that's the case then 'zfs create' does not work
[13:39:24] <ptx0> a part of me does not understand the desire to skip zero size snapshots
[13:39:42] <ptx0> they are zero now, but not later..
[13:42:39] <DeHackEd> internally a rollback is implemented by making a clone, promoting it, doing a clone swap (internal operation not available to users) and destroying the old dataset
[13:43:19] <ptx0> in a single txg
[13:43:25] <DeHackEd> right
[13:44:55] <ptx0> wonder if ml35 has some kind of brain damage
[13:45:05] <ptx0> 50% of their comments involve whining about how difficult things are for the end user
[13:45:13] <ptx0> a couple extra lines here or there in a script, just so difficult
[13:45:16] <insane^> maybe someone should point him to ansible or so
[13:45:25] <DeHackEd> zfs is relatively easy compared to some of the stuff out there...
[13:45:35] <ptx0> nah they want to get rid of scripts and roll everything into zfs utilities
[13:45:37] <ptx0> lmao
[13:45:54] <DeHackEd> well, in fairness ZFS now has a scripting language, so we've basically reverse roles now
[13:46:05] <ptx0> ah but it can't run without root so basically doesn't exist ;)
[13:47:43] <ptx0> if snapshot -r also gets a -z to skip zero size snapshots why not give it a -x to skip child datasets as well
[13:48:03] <ptx0> shit, let's just look at the rsync manpage and copy features in one by one
[13:48:20] <MilkmanDan> zfs is weak and immature and will remain so until it can read email.
[13:48:47] <ptx0> MilkmanDan: i've been trying to teach it but it keeps asking where its parents are and i tell it Daddy Ahrens doesn't want to see it until it can read that damn email
[13:48:58] <MilkmanDan> Really, it just needs to quit screwing around and embed emacs.
[13:49:08] <ptx0> zpool nano <file>
[13:49:14] <MilkmanDan> Hah
[13:49:24] <MilkmanDan> Oh yeah. nano for sure.
[13:49:30] <DeHackEd> ptx0: that zero byte snapshot thing is easily implemented by a channel program, and it's race-free !
[13:49:33] <ptx0> zde, the zfs data editor
[13:49:40] <DeHackEd> (I think...)
[13:50:00] <ptx0> give it a filename and it'll discover the offset, recordsize, location of data and reconstruct it for you from disk
[13:50:03] <ptx0> oh wait
[13:50:08] <ptx0> that's what zfs already does
[13:50:20] <MilkmanDan> Wait, zero byte snapshots?
[13:50:35] <ptx0> #6041 dude
[13:50:38] <ptx0> you are a heavy sleeper
[13:50:48] <MilkmanDan> I am and it sucks.
[13:51:09] <DeHackEd> if a dataset hasn't changed since it was last snapshot'd, skip creating a new one
[13:51:23] <DeHackEd> actually that's possibly bad because now it looks like you're missing snapshots. maybe rename the old snapshot to the new name
[13:51:26] <MilkmanDan> Oh oh, I get it. Turn snap into a noop if there hasn't been any changed blocks.
[13:51:35] <ptx0> DeHackEd: that sounds even worse
[13:51:38] <DeHackEd> oh wait, now it looks like the old snapshot is missing. maybe we should create 2 snapshots instead
[13:51:47] * DeHackEd had an aneurysm
[13:51:50] <DeHackEd> (sp?)
[13:51:51] <ptx0> DeHackEd: they should just duplicate the last snapshot with the new name
[13:51:53] <ptx0> that's far simpler
[13:51:59] <MilkmanDan> I was thinking there was some new magical datastructure that was going to allow snapshots to literally cost zero bytes of additional storage per snap.
[13:52:08] <ptx0> anyeurism
[13:52:17] <DeHackEd> sure, I had one of those
[13:52:22] <DeHackEd> thanks ml35
[13:52:24] <ptx0> i had one trying to spell it
[13:52:49] <MilkmanDan> Ess tee are oh kay eee.
[13:53:07] <DeHackEd> no that's something different
[13:53:25] <ptx0> "scripting zfs get before snapshot is too much to do, lets embed that exact same logic into the zfs utility"
[13:53:47] <DeHackEd> they met you half way and provided channel programs that will let you put the script into the zfs utility
[13:54:00] <ptx0> but now IT CAN'T RUN AS NON-ROOT
[13:54:06] * MilkmanDan coughs "lua".
[13:54:07] <ptx0> shifting the goalpost 101
[13:54:15] <DeHackEd> MilkmanDan: that's channel programs
[13:54:22] <DeHackEd> also your tears are delicious
[13:54:27] <ptx0> who even uses zfs delegation anyway
[13:54:28] <ptx0> honestly
[13:54:32] <MilkmanDan> DeHackEd: Hey, justify it however you want, man. ;)
[13:54:38] <ptx0> sudo4lyfe
[13:54:45] <DeHackEd> MilkmanDan: not your tears. I mean ml35's
[13:54:49] * lblume learns about "zfs program"
[13:55:14] <ptx0> i'm surprised osx zfs doesn't have a hard dependency on zcp
[13:55:28] <ptx0> they love the bleeding edge
[13:57:18] <MilkmanDan> How hackish is zfsonosx lately? Does Apple still consider it dirty and sinful and hold its corporate nose when people integrate it?
[13:57:41] <ptx0> i doubt they will ever acknowledge its existence
[13:57:42] <DeHackEd> I'm going to assume zfs on osx isn't blessed by apple
[13:58:08] <ptx0> lmao
[13:58:11] <ptx0> oh my
[13:58:22] <ptx0> alzheimer's must be an epidemic over there
[13:58:40] <ptx0> er
[13:58:41] <DeHackEd> that was 13 years ago...
[13:58:43] <ptx0> 2006
[13:58:46] <ptx0> nvm
[13:58:47] <MilkmanDan> I wasn't going to ever expect a blessing, but the impression I got at the time of it first being uninvited from the party was that Apple really just wanted the whole project to vanish from history.
[13:58:49] <ptx0> google lied
[13:58:58] <ptx0> the timestamp in search says jan 5 2019
[13:59:33] <ptx0> DeHackEd: fun fact, it was don brady who ported zfs to OS X while working at apple
[13:59:36] <lblume> Must be the timestamp for the ads they'd really, really like you to have a quick glance at.
[13:59:43] <DeHackEd> interesting...
[14:01:29] <ptx0> wait, CEO of Synology "ZFS requires more memory and the performance is not better than Btrfs in compact NAS servers [...]"
[14:01:39] <ptx0> requires more memory?
[14:01:40] <MilkmanDan> Hahahaha
[14:02:01] <ptx0> what about the lack of raid5 safety
[14:02:04] <ptx0> come on, wang.
[14:02:10] <DeHackEd> thanks, but I want my data to be there tomorrow as well
[14:02:46] <MilkmanDan> Translation: "if our customers wanted a robust, high value solution we'd have to spend an extra $32 on RAM and that would eat into our profit margin."
[14:02:54] <blackflow> ptx0: synology has a custom raid layer under btrfs, they don't use btrfs' raid
[14:03:01] <blackflow> (which is extra funny)
[14:03:12] <ptx0> that's proving the point
[14:03:26] <blackflow> yup
[14:03:29] <MilkmanDan> blackflow: Anything Synology says comparing themselves favorable to zfs is extra funny.
[14:03:51] <ptx0> apparently the Dropbox CEO has dinner with the Synology fuckstain
[14:03:59] <DeHackEd> custom raid? as in, not just using mdadm?
[14:04:51] <DeHackEd> (I liked the drobo.. even though the performance was craptacular, its RAID did as advertised)
[14:04:57] <MilkmanDan> ptx0: That actually makes perfect sense. Instead of relying on your local NAS to protect your data, just sync it with the datacenter in Bluffdale. Tada, all safe.
[14:05:08] <ptx0> nah
[14:05:09] <blackflow> DeHackEd: yu
[14:05:13] <blackflow> *yup
[14:05:14] <ptx0> dropbox CEO says zfs is unsupported
[14:05:20] <ptx0> it "doesn't support xattrs"
[14:05:23] <insane^> MilkmanDan, sync? blah, put it in $cloud
[14:05:35] <cirdan> what doesn't, dropbox?
[14:05:38] <cirdan> cause zfs does
[14:05:48] <ptx0> dropbox ceo says zfs does not
[14:05:58] <MilkmanDan> insane^: To get the joke, google://Bluffdale+datacenter
[14:06:02] <DeHackEd> didn't he say anyhting but ext4 is unsupported?
[14:06:13] <ptx0> it refuses to even work
[14:06:15] <DeHackEd> can I just patch the kernel to report ext4 to all statfs system calls?
[14:06:19] <MilkmanDan> Maybe that joke doesn't travel so well outside of the US.
[14:06:26] <ptx0> he says it is unsupported because they only support filesystems that have xattr
[14:06:32] <ptx0> weird that he blocked XFS too
[14:06:36] <ptx0> vOv
[14:06:43] <DeHackEd> dude, XFS is the king of xattrs, or at least the old grampa of it
[14:06:49] <ptx0> inventor, even
[14:06:49] <insane^> MilkmanDan, germany here... so yes...
[14:07:16] <ptx0> oh and 'ext3' is unsupported too
[14:07:27] <ptx0> even though its xattr support is about as shite as ext4
[14:07:45] <MilkmanDan> insane^: Yes. It is vitally important that you continue to be completely unaware of any datacenters in Bluffdale. Also, your leaders should continue to have sensitive conversations over regular cell phones.
[14:08:01] <DeHackEd> didn't ext3/4 have a limit of 1 filesystem block per xattr for a file, whereas xfs has either 64k or unlimited each?
[14:08:12] <ptx0> i dunno
[14:08:19] <blackflow> DeHackEd: I know it's custom code because I've been looking into their NAS products for a company that wanted to use them in an enterprise-y fashion
[14:08:26] <DeHackEd> (realistically an xattr is transferred in its entirety per syscall, so you're not going to have multi-gigabyte xattrs)
[14:08:30] <ptx0> i do remember discovering that xfs xattr were not as grand as i once thought, now that more modern filesystems exist
[14:08:54] <insane^> MilkmanDan, you mean like this trumpish man uses his iphone?
[14:08:56] <insane^> :p
[14:09:21] <ptx0> insane^: careful, you're veering
[14:09:30] <MilkmanDan> DeHackEd: What if I want the disk blocks of the pdf to contain the full text of the book as xattr metadata?
[14:09:59] <cirdan> pretty sure hfs had xattrs in the 80s
[14:10:33] <ptx0> you mean HPFS?
[14:10:37] <MilkmanDan> ptx0: It's my fault. I'm being treasonous and attempting to stir up foreign resentment against my government, as I am clearly a Russian bot.
[14:10:55] <ptx0> MilkmanDan: it just doesn't belong here
[14:11:02] <ptx0> none of it
[14:12:00] <cirdan> no i mean HFS
[14:12:13] <cirdan> apple called them "resource forks"
[14:12:52] <ptx0> no
[14:12:57] <ptx0> that is not the same as an xattr
[14:16:34] <cirdan> hfs+ could have any number of different forks
[14:16:52] <cirdan> storing anything you wanted
[14:16:54] <ptx0> btw, i was playing Far Cry 5 for the first time today, well, trying to play it
[14:17:09] <ptx0> kept crashing in my VM until i started the qemu template with two NUMA zones and all 8 cores
[14:17:28] <ptx0> then i restarted the 4 core / single NUMA VM and tried again, still crashed, but 8 cores works
[14:17:59] <cirdan> weird
[14:18:04] <ptx0> i was seeing insane latencies and horrible frametime in benchmark but the gameplay seems to be smooth
[14:18:16] <ptx0> also it's a pretty good game so far
[14:18:48] <ptx0> it's neat that you can start up a single player campaign and your friends can just join you on the journey
[14:19:02] <ptx0> turning it dynamically into coop mode
[14:19:31] <ptx0> kind of expensive game though, imo
[14:29:10] <ptx0> oh yeah it must be something personal and nothing related to the issues themselves
[14:29:19] <ptx0> that's why i closed some and not all of the issues, right

[15:07:45] <ptx0> well that's a bold move right there
[15:07:54] <ptx0> suggesting we use leaked code
[15:08:25] * ptx0 ships cirdan SMR devices
[15:09:20] <cirdan> sure
[15:09:25] <ptx0> 4800rpm
[15:09:31] <cirdan> 16tb
[15:09:32] <ptx0> buckle up, buckaroo.
[15:09:40] <cirdan> and an ssd to back the metadata
[15:09:53] <ptx0> i think a 4800rpm smr disk would have an effective rate of less than 20MiB/s
[15:10:18] <cirdan> gpleaked... i think he meant not "leaked" but unintentinaly released as gpl
[15:10:25] <ptx0> yes
[15:10:34] <ptx0> i understood what they meant
[15:10:53] <ptx0> it is all gpl code but you sign some contract that prevents you from releasing the gpl code to unauthorised parties
[15:10:58] <ptx0> of course this is against the gpl

[17:11:45] <PMT> bunder: I mean, there's basically no way to argue it wasn't legal short of accusing someone of actually compromising grsec computers to acquire the code.
[17:12:18] <bunder> sure but that doesn't mean he can't be publicly salty about it
[17:12:36] <bunder> maybe his lawyer told him not to lol
[17:12:40] <PMT> it does mean he can't readily issue a legal takedown though
[17:17:20] <cirdan> all you can do is cancel the contract of the leaker, if you can find out who it is
[17:17:40] <cirdan> the contract could have fines for doing it as well, but then again you need to figure out who did it
[17:17:56] <PMT> i wonder if they try to cleverly embed steganographic information in the source
[17:18:12] <cirdan> it's possible. it's being done now by govt and other places

[17:49:37] <ghfields> I agree
[17:51:16] <Shinigami-Sama> ptx0: funny story about synology and btrfs....
[17:51:35] <Shinigami-Sama> we had a client lose an entire LUN off of one of those units...
[17:52:05] <Shinigami-Sama> then we recover it, but perf was AWEFUL, like IDE drive bad in a 16? disk unit
[17:52:27] <bunder> gamers nexus had 2 synology boxes die in like 4-5 months
[17:52:30] <bunder> they sound crap
[17:54:41] <Shinigami-Sama> they're great for the price, but I perfer QNAPs. they're far more robust OSwise
[17:55:01] <Shinigami-Sama> we typically use them as backup targets now thankfully\
[17:56:22] <bunder> i'm not big on the boxes at all tbh, puny cpu, little memory, yet they're marketed as being an everything box
[17:56:42] <bunder> "run your docker containers and vm's on our atom with 4gb of memory weeeeeeeee"
[18:01:37] <ghfields> I have obtained 5 sata bay thecus unit with a 64-bit atom processor. The PS died, but runs fine with an external ps with wires snaked into it. Hopefully, I can get the PS issue resolved one way or another and use it as a backup pool.
[18:04:39] <bunder> if its non standard, you're probably gonna have to use a donor and hope it doesn't die too
[18:05:31] <bunder> or the nasty "cables from outside" :P
[18:05:55] <cirdan> might be able to use a pico power or something?
[18:07:20] <bunder> will it have enough wattage? i thought they weren't powerful enough
[18:07:29] <cirdan> what does it need?
[18:07:41] <cirdan> i think they do 60-90w or something
[18:07:50] <cirdan> enough for 5 drives and an arom

[18:08:34] <Shinigami-Sama> I think I do, I just read almost all of MS's documentation on sharepointonline yesterday
[18:09:26] <bunder> ewwwwwww sharepoint
[18:09:32] <ghfields> let me do some lookin... thecus n5550....
[18:09:37] <FinalX> hm. can I somehow zfs send/receive/whatever an existing (recursive) dataset to make them normalization=formD?
[18:09:49] <FinalX> zfs receive -o normalization=formD won't work at least..
[18:09:59] <Shinigami-Sama> sharepoint is better than SMB/lt2p tunnels...
[18:10:04] <FinalX> and it's readonly on the sending side, so.
[18:10:25] <cirdan> it's pool wide
[18:10:25] <DHE> I suspect not because the metadata required for normalization is either missing in the stream or already in the stream. either way not something you should be sending.
[18:10:34] <FinalX> no, it's not pool wide.. I wish it was
[18:10:41] <cirdan> and only settable on creation
[18:10:46] <cirdan> it isn't/
[18:10:47] <cirdan> ?
[18:10:51] <DHowett> Shinigami-Sama: (i still feel compelled to apologize for the sharepoint team's .. uh, creation)
[18:10:57] <DHE> no, it's a per-dataset property
[18:11:00] <FinalX> no, the pool is normalization=formD, but the dataset on it is not. while all other datasets are.
[18:11:09] <cirdan> oh. interitable though right?
[18:11:13] <FinalX> yes
[18:11:39] <FinalX> so, I should probably create new datasets for every dataset and rsync stuff over then, I guess
[18:11:43] <FinalX> hm
[18:11:44] <Shinigami-Sama> DHowett: its better than it used to be, by leaps and bounds. Especially now that e1 licenses come with word/etc online so you don't even to mess with checking in/out
[18:12:30] <FinalX> it's only like ~200G on an NVMe disk, so could've been worse :)
[18:13:14] <cirdan> wow those are expensive power supplies
[18:14:14] <Shinigami-Sama> cheaper than getting an electical engingeer to figure out whats wrong and corect it. even if is just a Cap that died
[18:14:23] <bunder> 350w heh
[18:14:30] <Shinigami-Sama> oh my... 1/3 of the cost in shipping..
[18:14:36] <ghfields> found that one. 350w definately will do it. Reviews are saying 5x 3.5 drives top consumption around 55w.
[18:14:38] <cirdan> more expensive than getting a different nas box
[18:14:54] <cirdan> yeah all spinning up at once it's about that ghfields
[18:15:16] <bunder> for $115 i'd go the fixing a cap route
[18:15:17] <Shinigami-Sama> if you're lucky, you can tell your BIOS/controller to spin them up at different times
[18:15:20] <cirdan> i have a 4 bay nas like that I was thinking of selling for $250
[18:15:20] <ghfields> Oh, I understand instaneous load is definately different
[18:16:05] <Shinigami-Sama> the HP microserves did that, they had an HD poweron delay, it was the only way the little 180w? PSU could handle two 3.5 drives...
[18:16:30] <ghfields> Is it really a one-off form factor?
[18:16:40] <cirdan> looks like it
[18:16:52] <cirdan> my emc nas has an external power supply. nice and cheap/easy to replace
[18:17:18] <Shinigami-Sama> actually you could probably do a brain transplant of that PSU
[18:17:30] <cirdan> depends if the board fits
[18:17:45] <Shinigami-Sama> if you value your time, it might work to be more expensive though
[18:17:46] <cirdan> you can look and see if a fuse blew in yours
[18:17:58] <cirdan> i've had to replace a fuse or 2 before
[18:18:02] <bunder> resoldering the wires might be a pain, they're usually gigantic solder blobs
[18:18:31] <bunder> if you swap the board and keep the original wiring
[18:18:34] <ghfields> I watched this PS repair video this weekend. Check out that accent!
[18:19:42] <bunder> russia? :P
[18:20:52] <DHowett> that Thecus thing looks like a FlexATX power supply. the dimensions on the listing don't match that, though, so \_(shrug)_/

[19:03:12] <madwizard> I also noticed that I didn't sign off my patch
[19:03:31] <DHE> that's automatic with "git commit -s"
[19:03:42] <madwizard> Ah, right. I even read about it last week but already forgot
[19:06:30] <bunder> i wrote that wiki article, so if it sucks, sorry :P
[19:06:34] <ghfields> bunder: looks like you can change "(commit messsage) By style guidelines, this has to be less than 50 characters in length." re: #8250
[19:06:48] <bunder> yeah i suppose i can
[19:07:12] <buu> Shinigami-Sama: Well, at least you won't need to power the heater with that setup
[19:07:47] <ghfields> bunder: I've referenced it in the past. I appreciate it.
[19:08:17] <bunder> there :P
[19:09:03] <bunder> 72 seems odd too but what do i know
[19:09:31] <ghfields> I mean... it was merged like DOZENS of minutes ago.
[19:10:44] <bunder> i saw it, i did forget i mentioned the style bits in the wiki though
[19:12:52] <stefan00> when I boot my new gentoo install using zfs + initramfs, it takes a long time for initramfs to import the root pool. Long time meaning about 40 seconds. Nothing except the raw gentoo system on the pool yet. Is that normal? Haven’t seen this on previous installl.
[19:14:23] <bunder> genkernel?
[19:14:28] <stefan00> yes
[19:14:34] <bunder> try dracut
[19:14:43] <bunder> i thought they fixed that, odd
[19:14:58] <zfs> [zfsonlinux/zfs] #8235 feature request: zpool iostat N should repeat header like vmstat N (#8246) new commit by Damian Wojs?aw <https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs>
[19:15:10] <stefan00> so its not normal and a gentoo issue, right?
[19:15:28] <bunder> probably
[19:15:48] <bunder> we don't do anything for genkernel like we do with the dracut scripts
[19:20:36] <bunder> apparently its in progress? /shrug

[19:44:30] <ghfields> Wasn't there a recent video from one of the openzfs conferences from an HD company talking about SMR?

[21:08:49] <ptx0> FireSnake: you really don't get it, do you
[21:09:05] <ptx0> no one cares about the FHS, no one uses /srv
[21:13:04] <Shinigami-Sama> thats olde solaris cruft
[21:13:08] <Shinigami-Sama> like /export/home

[21:13:39] *** Slashman <Slashman!~Slash@cosium-152-18.fib.nerim.net> has quit IRC (Remote host closed the connection)
[21:14:07] <Shinigami-Sama> this is why we have edgeless saftey cubes
[21:14:46] * CompanionCube wonders why you'd mount a pool under /srv though
[21:15:53] <CompanionCube> 'Site-specific data served by this system, such as data and scripts for web servers, data offered by FTP servers, and repositories for version control systems.' i don't feel it
[21:16:37] <CompanionCube> unless you're using NFS or such, it'd be a decent stretch to say that a system serves a pool
[21:17:13] <CompanionCube> Shinigami-Sama: /srv seemed/seems like the best place to stuff gogs in, so
[21:18:45] <Shinigami-Sama> I'm half teasing, I'm thinking of moving to /export/home so I can shrink my / volume before I move everything
[21:21:50] <ptx0> CompanionCube: that goes into /opt.
[21:22:56] <CompanionCube> eh, you could say that for the binaries
[21:23:04] <CompanionCube> but storing data in /opt feels weird
[21:23:45] <PMT> Like storing data in /srv? :P
[21:23:56] <DHE> cirdan: I'm not using MAC to mitigate SMR performance actually. I considered it but the one server I have with SMR disks doesn't have a supported version running
[21:24:08] <DHE> (exactly 1 server with SMR disks in it right now)
[21:24:14] <CompanionCube> PMT: well, my example specifically hits two out of three of the mentioned things
[21:24:34] <CompanionCube> data for the web frontend and the served git repositories :)
[21:28:25] <ptx0> i am autistic and even i think arguing about /srv and wanting it implemented just for the sake of following some arbitrary rules that NO ONE follows is "a bit much"
[21:28:32] <cirdan> DHE: ah my bad. heh you have 1 server too many :)
[21:28:58] <CompanionCube> ptx0: yeah itseems rather pointless
[21:29:00] <FinalX> "as there is currently no consensus"
[21:29:01] <FinalX> lol
[21:29:04] <cirdan> CompanionCube: /mnt should be used cause it's a mount
[21:29:05] <cirdan> :)
[21:29:31] <ptx0> lol /srv/www
[21:29:34] <CompanionCube> cirdan: inb4 someone complains that you can't use /mnt as it's for temporary mounts
[21:29:35] <ptx0> it's /var/www, stupid
[21:29:45] <ptx0> CompanionCube: but what about /media
[21:29:47] <FinalX> how about following the idea of ZFS's inception and NOT use / to begin with, but just mount pool as pool
[21:29:49] <cirdan> hell I could see a default of /zfs/$pool or /mnt/zfs/$pool but not /srv
[21:29:53] <FinalX> screw the leading /
[21:30:02] <cirdan> FinalX: where?
[21:30:05] <CompanionCube> ptx0: no-one uses /media
[21:30:07] <cirdan> ./$pool
[21:30:18] <ptx0> CompanionCube: automount does
[21:30:18] <FinalX> no, no root.. forget the root
[21:30:19] <cirdan> that would be fun
[21:30:22] <FinalX> (I'm just kidding, obv)
[21:30:33] <cirdan> CompanionCube: umm /mnt is temp mounts? since when
[21:30:47] <cirdan> /tmp is for tmp stuff :)
[21:31:04] <ptx0> even within the FHS they document how no one cares about the FHS, repeatedly:
[21:31:07] <ptx0> It should be noted that some distributions like Debian allocate /floppy and /cdrom as mount points while Redhat and Mandrake puts them in /mnt/floppy and /mnt/cdrom respectively.
[21:31:20] <FinalX> always has been, was for flo... yeah, that
[21:31:31] <CompanionCube> cirdan: iirc some old FHS version or something
[21:31:36] <ptx0> but it says /media is for removeable media
[21:31:39] <cirdan> yeah we don't listen
[21:31:44] <ptx0> and then says put cdrom and floppy into /mnt
[21:31:46] <CompanionCube> not than anyone cares except for curmdegons
[21:31:55] <CompanionCube> i spelled that wrong but I don't care
[21:32:00] <FinalX> lol
[21:32:01] <ptx0> FHS => "Fuckin' Hella Stupid"
[21:32:06] <FinalX> "
[21:32:08] <FinalX> "Amid much controversy and consternation on the part of system and network administrators a directory containing mount points for removable media has now been created. Funnily enough, it has been named /media."
[21:32:34] <cirdan> I honestly use /tmp for real temp mounts
[21:32:49] <cirdan> in boot envs i even just mount over /tmp :)
[21:32:53] <cirdan> one less command to do
[21:33:02] <FinalX> after working here for 17+ years, I realised that no mounts are really all that temporary
[21:33:20] <cirdan> yeah nobody ever ejects that installer cd
[21:33:27] <FinalX> and I use a path in /mnt if I just can't think of a better one, or it should be mounted but not in a general path
[21:33:45] <cirdan> I put my pools in /mnt
[21:34:02] <cirdan> /mnt(fishtank|mediatank|fishbowl)
[21:34:43] <cirdan> guess I really need to get my backup tapes labeled so I can expand my pool
[21:34:43] <FinalX> like /mnt/plexdrive, because plexdrive's mount is only used by rclone for decryption, which in turn is just mounted as /mnt/google, following by a unionfs of that + /mnt/local (big zfs stripe) into /data
[21:34:44] <CompanionCube> huh, apparently they didn't bother to change the description of /mnt for 3.0
[21:34:57] <CompanionCube> seems stupid
[21:35:03] <cirdan> FHS? mostly
[21:35:04] <cirdan> :)
[21:35:33] <FinalX> in other news, all those datasets I mentioned earlier are now rsynced into new datasets with formD <3

[21:36:42] <ptx0> cirdan: that seems... unlawful

[21:37:11] <cirdan> it only seems that way
[21:37:32] <CompanionCube> ptx0: but it h
[21:37:37] <ptx0> dude's a severe narcissist though he seems mostly harmless
[21:37:40] <CompanionCube> ptx0: but it has been determined that was a lie?
[21:37:51] <cirdan> CompanionCube: it was a good story
[21:37:55] <ptx0> CompanionCube: not yet
[21:38:16] <ptx0> i guess over the course of a year it's not been very long yet and there's plenty of time left for the average to change
[21:39:04] <CompanionCube> truth
[21:39:27] <DHE> cirdan: sadly I can't run everything on 0.8.0-rc or git head. the servers doing important stuff go through the usual change management system. things like my workstation, the backup target and the new developments I can be a little more loose with.
[21:39:53] <ptx0> he is really frustrating so far though, the carpet is dirty, gave him some money and asked him to rent a shampooer and he had so many excuses, like, he owns this house and i'm a tenant. whose job is it to rent equipment? :P
[21:40:27] <ptx0> the money is still sitting on the counter where i left it and carpets are still nasty, good stuff
[21:40:48] <CompanionCube> shampooer is a weird name
[21:41:00] <ptx0> well it isn't a proper noun, so there's that
[21:41:29] <CompanionCube> it just doesn't sound like a carpet thing
[21:41:42] <ptx0> yeah like carpet is made out of hair
[21:42:20] <ptx0> it's snowing today on vancouver island though for real, not that fake "wintry mix" shit

[21:50:37] <Phil-Work> will it run 10g-baseT SFP+?
[21:50:38] <PMT> If nothing else, 10GBASE-T has much higher power requirements.
[21:51:11] <ghfields> those transcievers would cost the cost the same as the switch (per side)
[21:51:22] <Phil-Work> yeh, they're not cheap
[21:51:54] <Phil-Work> 2 port SFP+ PCI-E cards tend to work out cheaper
[21:52:12] <Phil-Work> if you're not constrained by structured cabling, that is
[21:53:48] <ghfields> I'm thinking for my home. Put a bunch of cat6 in and then tons of cellulose insulation in the attic. More runs of any kind will not be fun.
[21:54:47] <Phil-Work> you've already run cat6?
[21:55:31] <ghfields> yea. Bought a house, pulled out all pots and replaced with a 4x cat6 at each plate.
[21:55:46] <Phil-Work> yeh, that's my problem
[21:55:50] <Phil-Work> too late to run more cable now
[21:55:52] <ghfields> I think I have 40 runs now.
[21:56:32] <Phil-Work> house v3.0 shall have some quantity of SM fibre
[21:56:49] <Phil-Work> for now, I shall just have to live with it
[21:57:18] *** jseiters <firstname.lastname@example.org> has quit IRC (Quit: Konversation terminated!)
[21:57:41] <Sketch> SM = long run, MM = short run
[21:57:47] <ghfields> at work, they had cat5.... someone came in and told them that fibre was the future. They ripped out the distributed switch closets, made a unified switch room in the basement. Now we are stuck with a bunch of OM1 MM fibre.
[21:57:55] <Sketch> you probably don't want SM fiber in your house unless it's coming in from an ISP
[21:58:04] <Phil-Work> MM kills kittens
[21:58:20] <Phil-Work> there's very little reason in this day and age to use MM - the price difference is negligable
[21:59:27] <ghfields> OM1 will support 10G for 33m, but like I said, they killed off the switch closets.
[22:00:08] <ghfields> They chose to kill the PBX also, so they want to do POE... guess what is really hard to do across glass? Electricity
[22:00:31] <Phil-Work> this is why SM
[22:00:44] <Phil-Work> the same SM fibre that supports your 1, 10, 25, 40 and 100G also now supports 400G
[22:00:52] <ghfields> WE have media converters EVERYWHERE. What a mess.
[22:01:39] <Sketch> Phil-Work: there's not a big difference in the fiber itself, but there's a big difference in the cost of transcievers
[22:01:51] <Phil-Work> Sketch, not really
[22:02:00] <Phil-Work> LX 10KM optics are $7 a pop
[22:02:09] <Phil-Work> unless you're buying thousands of them, it's not going to dent your wallet
[22:02:11] <Sketch> especially if you buy from cisco ;)
[22:02:35] <Phil-Work> well, yes, that ^^
[22:02:58] <Phil-Work> once you've bought $vendor optics, you've no longer got a building to use them in as you had to sell it as well as your children and pets to pay for said optics
[22:03:58] <Sketch> even much cheaper 3rd party cisco-compatible tend to follow cisco's cost structure, where SM costs twice as much as MM
[22:04:32] <Phil-Work> not sure what fs.com charge for MM 1G optics but $7 for SM can't be sniffed at
[22:04:59] <Sketch> and many switches practically require brand name or compatible optics
[22:05:01] <Sketch> using fiber to servers is just silly unless you're on the bleeding edge of speeds
[22:05:29] <Phil-Work> fs.com do a decent job of making the optics compatible
[22:06:25] <Phil-Work> fibre to servers gives you a lot more port density
[22:06:39] <Phil-Work> you can get 4x10G off a single QSFP+
[22:06:55] <Phil-Work> with much lower power draw than 10G-BaseT
[22:08:56] <ghfields> (q)sfp+ is pretty nice within a datacenter
[22:10:42] <Sketch> this is true, but that cabling sounds awful
[22:10:56] <Sketch> and it's probably going to be DAC not fiber anyway ;)
[22:20:05] <Phil-Work> Sketch, I've seen some pretty nice deployments
[22:20:32] <Phil-Work> Juniper QFX 10k in the middle of the row with MPO terminated fibres going out to each cab
[22:20:57] <Phil-Work> patch panel in each cab converting MPO to LC then a patch cable to each server
[22:21:10] <Phil-Work> twas a thing of beauty
[22:27:32] <Sketch> hmm, never seen MPO before
[22:27:40] <Sketch> i was thinking more along the lines of DAC octopus cables
[22:27:46] <Sketch> from 40 to 4x10
[22:28:23] <Phil-Work> yeh, we run some of the DAC breakout cables
[22:28:29] * Sketch has a ticket at work to move some servers off of those that were set up before he was here
[22:28:31] <Phil-Work> really fugly
[22:29:48] <Sketch> it's a 10GbaseT switch, but instead of buying some 10GbT SFPs for the servers they just bought some DAC breakout cables
[22:30:39] *** gerhard7 <email@example.com> has quit IRC (Quit: Leaving)
[22:32:32] <Phil-Work> yeh, likewise
[22:33:06] <Phil-Work> we connect on the front of the rack into some firewalls with breakout cables, also
[22:33:12] <Phil-Work> literally no nice way to manage that mess of cable
[22:34:32] <Sketch> i've also been at places that did 100% fiber deployments in the past too
[22:35:07] <Sketch> it seems like a good idea until you end up with 4 fibers going to each server in a rack full of servers, and you have to figure out how to route all of those fibers so that they don't bend or kink
[22:35:42] <Sketch> not to mention testing/cleaning the cables
[22:36:01] <Sketch> technically you are supposed to clean them every time you disconnect/reconnect
[22:36:20] <Sketch> particularly SM, as they are much more susceptible to dirt than MM
[22:36:41] <Phil-Work> can't say I've ever cleaned a fibre
[22:36:53] <Phil-Work> give it a blow, like a Nintendo cartridge and you're set ;)

[23:54:52] <jasonwc> PMT: Instead, Tim Chase closed out both #5925 and #7363 and created a new PR - #8255
[23:54:57] <bunder> its not like github gets slow on big pr's with that hiding thing it does
[23:55:49] <PMT> bunder: dunno, how many until people give up on it :P
[23:56:00] <jasonwc> lol
[23:56:35] <jasonwc> or when it's no longer necessary
[23:57:10] <ptx0> bunder: it can still unicorn
[23:57:42] <bunder> maybe microsoft should buy better servers :P
[23:58:03] <bunder> they did just give everybody private repos
[23:58:18] <ptx0> they probably just have huge overhead and inefficient backend
[23:58:38] <ptx0> bunder: of course they did
[23:58:44] <ptx0> they want more people's private data ^_^
[23:58:55] <ptx0> peoples'?
[23:58:59] <ptx0> fuckin' english
[23:59:04] <PMT> I imagine it's more "allocate more servers" than buy, given(Azure)
[23:59:29] <ptx0> PMT: tis both.
[23:59:37] <ptx0> allocate and buy more.
[23:59:56] <bunder> do they use azure? i forget what happened with that outage
