  2. Several of you have already heard the very sad news of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Venky. He was Mr. DPDK to many, a nod to his invention and creation of DPDK about ten years ago (before it was called DPDK.) Of course his footprints across the industry and literally across the globe are everywhere. If you know what ATCA is, well, Venky had his hands and inventions deeply into the creation of that PICMG spec and many of the first revision products. He touched on and gave guidance to projects spanning Linux/netdev, DPDK, Intel QuickAssist Technology, BSD stacks, OVS, OPNFV, FD.io, all-things-virtualization (KVM, Xen, VMware, Hyper-V, etc.), ETSI, IETF, containers, and so many other arenas that my brain can't remember at this dark moment. If you knew him and engaged him, especially on deep technical discussions, you knew you were talking to someone with the rare combination of skills that went incredibly deep both on the hardware, silicon side of platforms but also on the software, networking side of the platforms. Rarely did I find a topic that Venky wasn't well versed on. And by I mean everything from football to photography to history to politics and many other subjects well beyond the technical realm our day jobs find us in. Conversations with Venky were a treat. Traveling with him was an adventure. Debating with him was a lesson. I will so miss all of him. Below are some details on a memorial service this Sunday in Oregon and also a GoFundMe page. If you're in Oregon or close by please join the service. Venky left behind a wife, Priya, and two young girls, Adhiti and Namrata. While I'm sure they are overwhelmed with sadness and grief at the moment they can use our support. Please consider supporting the GoFundMe memorial fund for his family. Lastly, my network extends through this distribution list. But Venky's network was one hundred times broader. Please share this sad news through your own networks. Thanks, Jim From: A message from Sandra Rivera Sent: Thursday, April 5, 2018 10:58 AM Subject: Follow-up: A loss for our NPG organization All, We have an update on the memorial service plans in celebration of Venky Venkatesan's life. The service will be held on Sunday, April 8th at our Jones Farm Conference Center (JFCC) in Hillsboro, OR from 2-4PM, and is open to all who would like to join. Venky's family will plan to attend, as well as friends and others who have worked closely with him over the years. Please note that this is not an Intel-sponsored event and therefore any travel or expenses related to attending need to be managed personally. Many of you have asked about donations, and we have helped setup a GoFundMe account for his family which will be used to fund scholarships for his children. https://www.gofundme.com/venky-venkatesan-memorial-fund If you have any questions about the service, please contact Udayan Mukherjee. Thank you all very much for your support during this difficult time. Sandra https://dpdk.org/ml/archives/announce/2018-April/000183.html
  3. Samsung 30TB SSD

    Solid state drives are much faster than mechanical hard drives. From a capacity perspective, however, the old-school hard drives typically offer more storage space. It is for this reason that many individuals and businesses still rely on hard disk drives for larger backups. Today, Samsung throws all logic out of the window by announcing it is mass producing a solid state drive with monstrous capacity. The "PM1643," as it is called, offers an insane 30.72TB of storage space! This is achieved by using 32 x 1TB NAND flash. "Samsung reached the new capacity and performance enhancements through several technology progressions in the design of its controller, DRAM packaging and associated software. Included in these advancements is a highly efficient controller architecture that integrates nine controllers from the previous high-capacity SSD lineup into a single package, enabling a greater amount of space within the SSD to be used for storage. The PM1643 drive also applies Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology to interconnect 8Gb DDR4 chips, creating 10 4GB TSV DRAM packages, totaling 40GB of DRAM. This marks the first time that TSV-applied DRAM has been used in an SSD," says Samsung. The company further says, "In addition to the doubled capacity, performance levels have risen significantly and are nearly twice that of Samsung’s previous generation high-capacity SAS SSD. Based on a 12Gb/s SAS interface, the new PM1643 drive features random read and write speeds of up to 400,000 IOPS and 50,000 IOPS, and sequential read and write speeds of up to 2,100MB/s and 1,700 MB/s, respectively. These represent approximately four times the random read performance and three times the sequential read performance of a typical 2.5-inch SATA SSD." While we know it is being mass-produced now, we don't yet know when exactly it will be available for sale. Pricing is also unknown, but it will surely be very expensive. Because it is intended for the enterprise and uses the Serial Attached SCSI interface, it is unlikely that it will be sold in any consumer retail channels. Source
  4. Is There A Problem With The GB Server?

    Hi @kingandsona , Chances are there were more than one servers selected, likely worldwide in the multi-thread testing area. Glad you got this sorted!
  5. PC Experts! Need some assistance.

  6. Old dog needs new tricks

    This sounds as more along the lines of local QOS setting might be useful. When you say : Does this mean you cannot use the laptop to stream or even brows the web while casting from the iPad to the TV, or you cannot cast from laptop to TV? Why would you not stream from the TV instead of casting from the iPad? Leaving wireless bandwidth open. What wireless device (router - built in modem router ect) is the network using?
  7. Continuous testing

    I could understand a connectivity ping, with email notifications of downtime or latency anomaly. Out of curiosity, what are the benefits from running a perpetual test, or what data are you seeking with this type of data gathering?
  8. Charleston East End Gang

    @flash103 , When you say : Are you insinuating when you go to the main TestMy.Net website, or when you begin a test file?
  9. Working in an area which is confined, where a residential 200 AMP service fires a breaker panel, clearances for service are obvious, as the following diagram explains: Where NEC 11.26(A)(2) states a 30" working / access clearance width (as wide as equipment or 30" whichever is greater) Panel door hinge must open a minimum of 90 degrees. I've placed low voltage equipment starting at the 30" mark to the right standing facing the panel. However there are low voltage lines running within that 30" against the wall. I'm being told (by the local electrical contractor) the door hinge on the breaker panel must swing out/ open 180 degrees, and no low voltage equipment can penetrate the 30" threshold. So the ultimate question I have is what are the code(s) regarding low voltage clearances regarding a 200 AMP breaker panel. Or how far away does a low voltage line need to be from a high voltage box.

    The lowest plan in that area appears to be 25Mbps wired, even so LTE should be pulling at least 20Mbps
  11. Where to began "HELP"

    Even at 14.64 Mbps I would think streaming would be suffice, unless your working with 4k, which would eat roughly 30Mbps on the grab and even 2Mbps or more upload during the stream. I would look at cleaning the machine top down, checking for outdated or useless browser addons / extensions, also look for older programs you might have forgotten about which could be phoning home in some strange way. That said, 32MB of video RAM could be a bottleneck.
  12. Hey folks.

    Awesome you did get things working as they should be, good for you! When you get the chance, check out Solus, bad a$$
  13. Speed Booster

    @Hard9, You like speed booster? Could you give the community a link or personal experience of the program? Thanks
  14. @stevethemanc , Maybe run a few tests, and as well post how much you are paying for the service
  15. Hey folks.

    Well they likely would not mention it, considering for the most part, anyone seeking true GB throughput would previously posses late model hardware. Please don't take that the wrong way, in any sense, however those speeds are nothing to joke about, it's the real deal, and required a rather healthy system from point to point to take advantage of, for the most part. I might try getting a live CD of a linux distrobution running, such as Solus Grab Rufus to burn the ISO to 'USB stick' , the image can be downloaded at Solus download ( budgie will be suffice and you'll like it I think) Test with that live distro running, to gather more data right? If you need any at all assistance doing this, just post it!
