I am working for a company which is doing infrastructure operations and IT consulting jobs in Germany, Europe.

My sphere of activities includes virtualization topics, IP networking, storage, server operations, monitoring, backups and network security. I was awarded the Microsoft MVP title for Windows Networking for several years in the past, although my public activity on Microsoft-specific topics has declined seriously due to lack of time so it is not likely to happen again that soon.

If you need to get in touch, just mail the company: office@syneticon.net

comment Is it possible to list the files that are cached?
@Joe Unfortunately, I am not that deep into Kernel internals to give an authoritative answer on this topic. The page cache seems generic enough to cache other types of data than just file system data blocks, but I am not aware of any examples.

comment Is it possible to list the files that are cached?
@Joe I suppose that the information stored in the kernel's page cache tables only will contain data block references and not filenames. fincore would resolve a given file's data blocks through inode data and search for respective entries in the page cache tables. There is no efficient search mechanism doing the reverse - getting a file name belonging to a data block would require reading all inodes and indirect blocks on the file system. Thus, algorithmically you will be better off supplying a list of all files on your file system to fincore if you really need this level of information.

comment Is it possible to detach and reattach a ZFS disk without requiring a full resilver?
If the resilver is going to introduce data errors, these are going to heal automatically over time or upon a zpool scrub.

comment Microsoft SQL Server Data Limit
Hey! I happen to own a piece of land on the moon. Even on the earth-near side. Now can you sell me this negative compression program? It certainly sounds most interesting. I could use it recursively to create a pile of data big enough to just walk up to my moon estate.

comment Detect faulty drive in RAID 10 array
you should be reading your RAID controller's command line tools documentation to figure out how to retrieve an array's status and how to initiate a scrub and get at its results.
