I built a monster?

by on Oct.07, 2019, under Ultimate Edition

I have physically built a new server. A 4U rackmount server. Using a ASUS TUF (The Ultimate Force) gaming WIFI Mainboard. Netdata reports to me in Gigabytes per second / Gigabits per second, no longer Megabytes / Megabits. I bought the 4U rackmount case from Rosewill. No, I do not make money for anything I am linking.

Dropped in the Motherboard PCIE 4.0 I remind you with dual NVME (Non-Volatile Memory Expansion) drives fully populated. Supports PCIE 4.0 drives that move 5 GB a sec a piece in raid 0. Ten Gigabytes per second, starting to get crazy?

This is a server we are building right? Dropped in initially 6 X 8 TB Seagate drives & see 2.7 GB a sec from that raid array. Looking like NVME speed at 48 Terabytes? Try and buy a NVME drive that is 48 TB in size ;). I bought 2 X 10 TB Western digital drives I initially thought were absolute crap to replace the 2 X 8TB Seagates in my main rig to drop them to the server. Dropped them in to a raid case (yesterday, was not sold out and $279 a piece). I have 2 of them & paid at max $138.00. I will not Bull shit you a great product, does not like the 10TB WD drives, raid 0 I seen max 90 MB/s. I was pissed. Not chump change.

I got up yesterday morning ripped them out of the raid enclosure & dropped them into the server. Destroyed all the data and Raided them 2 separate Raid Arrays. About 400 MB/s a sec, can’t complain. If a company makes a shit product, I will not link them.

Lets move on. I bought a AMD Ryzen 3500G An Quad core APU (Basically a CPU & GPU in one package) I wanted the 4.0 X 16 slot to drop in a quad NVME Raid card. This is a server we all about I/O activity. To be honest I do not care about the Vega Graphics. It is not even posting to a monitor, basically headless. I dropped in a dual 10 Gigabit Network card (only using one port right now).

I bought 16GB of ram for it, same ram as my main rig has & never had an issue with it. Let’s now get the shit out in the open. I bought a cheese graphics card (Be here Monday). I plan to to replace the APU with a 16 core / 32 thread AMD 3950X. Want to see what a AMD Quad core APU is capable of? I did buy a 1050 Watt PSU as well. The case supports 13 Hard disks. We have over 100 Terabytes in house & high speed I can assure you of that. I have been mirroring Ubuntu’s entire repository. I still have the other 2 X 32 Core servers sitting in the basement off. I have not sold them yet & can bring them online any time I want.

How do you like the quad core now? I just told you Gigabytes / Gigabits. I am shocked when I see it 100% CPU usage. Only time I have seen that happen is building an Operating System. Wait until a 16 Core / 32 Thread is sitting in there.

Prior to opening up Gigabit, yes I am writing software to accelerate your Internet. This is the “Junk” Quadcore in the basement. Today, it is Gigabytes/ Gigabits across the board. 2 days: Sat Oct 5 19:53:27 2019

Today, it says noting but Gigabit / Gigabytes. I am a bad mother fucker. Do you understand I moved from a Tier to the next. I am not done. I do write software right?

Lets look at the chart below. Disk I/O activity faster then a SSD 7XX MB a sec read, that is gone. Over a Gigabyte per second today. 10 Gigabit fibre opens that up. Can you imagine a 16 core / 32 thread?

You ladies and gents are probably more interested in Ultimate Edition 6.5 Server based on Mate? I am running it on dual 4K monitors I had to reduce the size of the image the server in the basement wont care about 4K mate will also die no GUI (Graphical User Interface) is coming for the Ultimate Edition server market:
Using tmmount to add Developer tools to server.

I am going to provide you a link do not bring one of our servers off line, no this is not a final release.
