All of this information is good, but can you provide some details on the actual hardware involved? Controllers? Disk type? Chassis?

comment NGINX Load balancing or stronger hardware? Please explain
I said nothing about using subpar hardware. I suggested that flexibility is key. What if you need to run an important OS update or perform hardware maintenance? Multiple servers in your load balancing pool are extremely handy for that.

comment Creating the exact size FS on xfs
@lbanz I'm sorry. It's still not a great solution.

comment Creating the exact size FS on xfs
To be honest, I would not do this without the use of a smarter filesystem or volume manager like ZFS, where you can have a large pool of storage and just set quotas on each directory. Otherwise, it sounds like a mess.

comment Creating the exact size FS on xfs
Why do you need to do it this way? That's a strange request.

comment Hp Proliant DL380 G4 Power on without Backplane
Also, I answered this question thoroughly in 2012. It didn't make sense to pursue then, and it definitely doesn't make sense now.

comment Hp Proliant DL380 G4 Power on without Backplane
There's a right way to do this... but at a certain point, it doesn't make sense to invest the time or effort into such old hardware.

And this is why you should abandon the idea. This was not meant to be.

comment Hp Proliant DL380 G4 Power on without Backplane
Are you not using another HP backplane to do this?

comment Slowness in Mac-based business network
I think this is a good time to call in a competent local IT consultant or tech to straighten things out and possibly make recommendation on better equipment.

comment System Information on terminal
@ddrjm It's not something you really log into. Use Monit to alert you (email) of high load/CPU conditions.

comment System Information on terminal
@ddrjm Watching a terminal for CPU and load information is also inefficient. Are you sure you're not looking for a simple monitoring/alerting solution? Something like Monit is very easy to install and is possibly the better way to keep track of these conditions.
