comment load average from netapp filer
The SNMP OID's are publically documented here, meaning you can query directly from snmpwalk/snmpget. Personally, I log everything from our NetApp appliance using Cacti

Oh - in case anyone was wondering what the outcome was - we chose NFS, and haven't looked back.

comment Where can I buy a good rackmount workstation?
@chopper3 considering it takes 4 x 8G DIMMS, adding up to 32G - I believe it's more server than workstation, but I guess that's subjective.

As to the comparison with the BoXX machines, the R5400 also has Teradici remote graphics capabilities.

I haven't had much luck running even small RoR apps on Dreamhost; very sloow.

comment More RAM or More Cores for a MySQL Database Server?
Don't forget that you'll need 64 bit OS and application binaries to make the most of the 4GB RAM.

comment Zimbra - NFS vs. iSCSI
Hi and thanks for your feedback. I definitely didn't want to rehash the old chestnut of FC/iSCSI vs NFS. The concern is that there is still a stigma associated with running Zimbra/MySQL on NFS (it's even mentioned in a few places in the link you've posted that Zimbra don't recommend NFS installs); however the post does suggest a hybrid solution of indexes being on iSCSI while the main store is on NFS. (There is no 10GBE NIC option for the 2050, however we're barely reaching 250MBps with a tailwind generally ATM) Thanks again.

comment What are useful Command-line Commands on Mac OS X?
Upvoted as I find myself having to run this more often than not, however don't remember having to flush the Linux or Windows DNS cache. Perhaps OS X is particularly aggressive at DNS caching?

comment Delaying when connecting to server through telnet
No, you need to enter the ip and hostname of the client in the servers hosts file.
