OT: LF Intel 6th or 7th gen i5/i7

------------------------------------------------------

I need to test a motherboard and the only compatible CPUs are 6-7th gen i5/i=
7s.

On a different note, is anyone in the market for a high end Dell workstation=
?

=============================================================== From: David White ------------------------------------------------------ I just recently bought a Unifi US-16-XG switch. https://store.ui.com/collections/unifi-network-routing-switching/products/= unifi-switch-16-xg It is one of the most affordable options I could find. It's going into a datacenter soon, along with a second 1Gbps switch. My biggest frustration so far is that the controller software requires an = older version of Mongodb that won't run on Ubuntu 20.04 / 20.10. So I'm go= ing to have to setup a VM with Ubuntu 18.04 in order to run the controller= .

=============================================================== From: Ben Bryan ------------------------------------------------------ HEhe, you kids and your pre-compiled packages. Back in my day...(spares David the Unixbeard rant) I'm guessing you considered getting the Mongodb source code for the version you want (& development pkgs) and building it on a Ubuntu 20? You'd have to watch apt when it updates any Mongodb dependencies... P.S. this is my first post. Hi everyone.

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ You should probably build the apt package yourself, then you can pin your version and not have to worry about apt upgrades. Cheers, and welcome! -Dave

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Welcome, indeed.

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ Or just run it in a container built on the version of Ubuntu you need... --b

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ Based on my limited experience of software that only comes containerized, that's gonna be a hard no for me dog. Containers are the ultimate dev "it works on my box" that never gets updated again. Eff that noise. Cheers, -Dave =2E es ny

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ Ooh, tell us what you feel about SNAPS then! Jeff. P.S. Now where's my popcorn?

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ You can totally update the container base image, and part of CI/CD is building a continuous deployment that allows you to keep the base image constantly up to date.

=============================================================== From: Ben Bryan ------------------------------------------------------ My "containerization" experience is limited to FreeBSD jails ;) (a mature solution long before docker/kubernetes was a gleam in their developers eyes).  I'll just see myself out... Ben

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ AFAIK, they are containers. They carry the same disgust. Cheers, -Dave rs are the =A0 Eff he pin

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ What can be done, and what is done, are often very different things. 90% of it is "works on my box", here I shipped you my box. Never touch anything in the base again. Cheers, -Dave ainers

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ I=E2=80=99ve told my customers this, but not this bluntly: If you don=E2=80=99t have the discipline to implement and enforce mature pol= icies around ci/cd, including automated testing, then your organization isn=E2= =80=99t ready for containers, and you should continue to do what you=E2=80=99= re doing today. Technology will not fix broken processes nor procedures. For example: Today I talked a consultant off the ledge as he was wrestling with automatio= n to copy 200+ local users from 14 different serves to 14 new servers across= different OS versions, and no documentation nor knowledge of what all the u= sers did. A classic =E2=80=9Cwe don=E2=80=99t know what it does, so just copy everythi= ng over, and we=E2=80=99ll pretend to care about fixing it 5 years from now.= =E2=80=9D As opposed to implementing IPA and using centralized management... b/c that w= ould require work by identifying what all the users did, if they were active= , what processes they controlled, the risks involved, and consolidating them= into a healthy list. --b : part of my main duties the past year.=20 : ff he

=============================================================== From: Jason Brown ------------------------------------------------------ As an official old fart, I love containerization and the workflow / isolation it provides. As usual YMMV. Bare metal is so 2010... Like, totally. --Jason On Wed, Mar 17, 2021 at 11:50 AM Stephen Kraus wrote: -- Jason Brown

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Hyperconverged baby: Containers in VMs!

=============================================================== From: james@bertelson.me ------------------------------------------------------ I was doing this in my home server until recently. I realized the main value I was getting was qemu snapshots, but that I could get that by using zfs under my docker-compose stuff. Ditching the VM also solved an ongoing issue I had with the underlying share between host and guest crashing under heavy I/O (thanks, EPB!) I admit to having tried to pull an organization into the 21st century and failed. Leadership wanted to move away from colos and to AWS, but resisted doing it what I would consider to be the right way by moving to CI/CD and containers and instead brought on a consultant who essentially told them he could do it faster and cheaper by just mirroring their current outdated VM infrastructure. It’s no longer my circus nor my monkeys but I do wonder if they’re also still rushing to provision servers by hand when load spikes. Probably. Sigh. -- James Bertelson james@bertelson.me :wq
