You won't be able to disable the VGA graphics in the bios unless you have a secondary card pci/agp graphics card installed. You might see the option, but it won't let you do it unless there is some other output. If your bios is fancy it might have a serial output in which case you might be able to disable the VGA, just be ready with a serial console if you ...

You don't say which OS or whether the two cards are in the same type of slot. On Windows, a large virtual desktop spanning multiple monitors can be set up no matter which way you connect them in your circumstances. I don't have any multimon experience on Linux and I've forgotten what i knew about OS X. Regardless of the OS, I would think that some ...

I wrestled with the same problem. My solution was to lock down the control panel and disable the Intel program. I disabled the Intel program with a startup script that ran a registry update: startup.bat: reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v IgfxTray /f

Well I had a theory about IRQ sharing, but you have identified it as a driver issue. I think it is likely that nVidia never expected someone to run dual PCI cards. They probably only account for PCI-Express + PCI or AGP + PCI.

That's some odd hooodoo, but it makes sense now. What this is targeted at is not getting N CAD designers on a single ESX host for desktop consolidation. All the reasons you mention mean that isn't going to happen (GPU contention!). What this is aimed at is CAD station mobility. The actual technology that brings the full GPU driven experience to a remote ...

EL6 already includes Intel graphics drivers. You don't need to do anything unless you have a specialized need that requires you to replace the system graphics drivers. (You don't, or you would have mentioned it already.) In particular, the i915 driver included with EL 6.3 already includes support for your Ivy Bridge graphics.

The already mentioned Zabbix, Cacti, Munin and ntop are excellent for general network traffic graphing. But if your management is not very technical and you have some web servers around, logstalgia provides you lot of eye candy. Just tell them you are debugging your web server load issues or whatever. :-) You can use it in real time like this: ssh ...

I can't be sure on this, but one to each card would be the logical answer. Distributing the load across both cards. I should think it makes minimal performance difference, but that's the way I'd do it.

I'm seeing PowerEdge 1800 motherboards on eBay for reasonable prices. You might want to find an eBay or other used seller who is willing to ship to your locality, or find someone who can broker the sale for you. A like-for-like motherboard swap would cause you the least headaches re: the operating system.

There's a various network weathermap software out there, it looks like it might use this one: http://netmon.grnet.gr/weathermap/

Students you say? Sounds like a job for Windows SteadyState. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/sharedaccess/default.mspx Alternatively, you could uninstall the Intel driver package and use the standard VGA driver.

What you're describing makes me think of Fudgie. I've used stuff like this for monitoring consoles to make logs look fancy.

I suggest you check out Munin out munin which is fairly easy to setup, and provides daily, weekly, monthly and yearly graphs for your network and lots of other stuff on your system. On an Ubuntu system, you can just execute the following commands to get it up and running: sudo apt-get install munin munin-node

You need an update, as such: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21075 This will install the required version of remote desktop. And this link from Microsoft explains the update in more detail.

Try disabling the on-board graphics adapter from BIOS setup. If you are worried that you'll lose all video, document all settings in there so you safely can reset the CMOS in case it doesn't work. Removing the Nvidia card should also revert to the onboard adapter.

Try creating a display profile in nvidia control panel. You can create profiles for specific applications etc too. If that isn't what your looking for, have a go with DisplayFusion. http://www.displayfusion.com/

Generally VPS servers don't have 3D capabilities. You have to get a real server and make sure the graphics adapter for it can handle 3D.

If your server is a physical one then you'll need a specific type of GPU to achieve what you're looking for, specifically an NVidia Grid GPU. This is a PCIe card that provides virtual GPUs to applications running in environments such as Citrix or VMWare/View. Here's a link.

Not sure if price is an issue... HP Pavilion HPE h9-1044uk - http://h40059.www4.hp.com/uk/homedesktops/product.php?id=H0C52EA&experience=direct This machine comes with a 6850 card. You could give them a call and see if you can get it without the card (i know Dell usually allows modifications like that for business users). (If you are interested in ...

Along the same lines as logstalgia is gltail. It has a different visualisation style (not pong, so it looks slightly less like a game) and it has a cute "funnel" effect that looks like a visual backlog when your server is busy. I've only ever used it for Apache but the site says "If you can 'tail' it, you can visualise it." Presumably, if you wanted a ...

LCD Displays usually have a "Color Adjust" for different settings of "Kelvin". In essence, it adjust the display in a way that causes different amounts of tint to occur. Your monitors are using two different settings, one of which is biased towards red.

Does not work at the moment. Better with Cytrix and / or the upcoming 2008 R2 Sp1 which has new codecs and supposedly is good enough to handle even stuff like 3d over RDP (though I have no idea what the bandwidth requirement will be - can be this is a LAN only thing). That said, the area is pretty grey. I am successfully using multiple virtual machines in a ...

I have used the PCIE x1 Nvidia NVS 440 and 280 in Poweredge 2950. Our company had a customer that needed a 2U rackmount workstation with 6 24" displays at 1920x1200. We were able to get the 2950's running XP x64 with a 440 and a 280 installed, so it had 6 displays. These cards are by no means high-end but much better then the integrated video. Please ...

I would expect that what the BIOS detects as the video and what you are thinking about are two different things. The BIOS is a very small program with limited abilities. Most likely the BIOS is looking for a device that supports VGA interrupt calls and finding one, it uses it. If I understand your situation correctly, the BIOS is using one of the cards you ...

Check out http://www.network-weathermap.com/ I use a NagVis 1.5 weathermap with Nagios at my site. Cacti+weathermap is a good option too.

By sizes do you mean file sizes or image height/width? They may not necessarily allow "arbitrary" sizes but bandwidth-reducing proxies (aka "accelerators") recompress image files to shrink them, among other bandwidth-saving tricks. Wikipedia has a page about them with a list of options. If mean to rescale images on the fly, that's basically what a ...

You can use ImageMagick with php/perl/python. It will allow you to resize the image. The only catch here is that you want to cache the image, Ideally. For making the image cache friendly you would have to redirect to a unique URL and will have to keep the state of the for every call for redirection. example. ...

I'm not sure I'd worry about it. Linux is far better at managing RAM than you are. Let it do it's own thing. If you have DRAC access (or similar) to the BIOS, then you might be able to disable the memory-sharing, or limit it down to 16MB (or so). Seriously though, RAM is cheap. If you run out, buy more.

In the free-as-in-beer, free-as-in-speech category I've been using SciDAVis on and off over the years and it's always worked well. It's cross-platform and speedy. The UI has some quirks that require getting used to but all-in-all it's a very powerful plotting, graphing and graphical analysis program.

R stats package has very powerful graphing and plotting and data file manipulation all as primitives. On top of that it is a full features stats package like SAS and a programming language as well. R is supported well on Windows/Mac/Linux and comes with an interactive console window. It's really all you will ever need. My usual workflow is to do some data ...
