Homelabs of Geekhack
« on: Mon, 29 October 2018, 20:44:49 »
I figure I might as well combine my two favorite topics...

Post pictures or network diagrams of your homelabs; I know one of you has one!

I'll upload photos of mine once I get it updated this weekend (have two r620s on the way).

I have never drawn a diagram of mine.

It is a lot more boring now than it used to be.

Back in the day I had a small cluster of rack-mount Sun servers, plus a couple of Dell servers and a few bits of networking gear, and many workstations.

Now it is one modem/router, one server, and about half a dozen workstations.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

 I knew I'd  find some of you here! Whatcha got?

My current 'server' is a 2007 mobo based PC slash Arch LNMP nextcloud thingy held together with twigs and bubblegum. Though I would loave to see what other GH users are using. Especially Gear with ZFS.

edit - I meant to type "I would love to see", but failed.

I haven't drawn a diagram of my network because I haven't seen the need to it's stupidly simple.
Using 2 gigabit switches, 1 router, 1 server, 2 workstations and 1 Raspberry Pi.
RPi is running RasPlex and it's placed in the living room.
Also have my 2 workstations placed in the living room, that was the wife's decision she said she'd never see me otherwise.  :p
Server is placed in my 'server room' which is just a room I dedicated to all my tech ****.

Hoping to snag a first gen Threadripper at some point and update the server.

EDIT: Oh I forgot, the server is used for storage and whatever project I might be working on. Or if I need to learn something for work.

HP MicroServer as the main server.  Older HP Proliant as an occasional database server.  Bunch of workstations of various types, vintages and OSes.

Nothing very exciting any more.

Well, I thought it was simple enough, it got complicated as I remembered how many systems are around the house.

This is just my day to day stuff.
I always have a pile of stuff I'm toying with or just sitting collecting dust.

I thought mine was simple until I started to try and describe it, it became easier to just draw it up (with stolen clipart*).

I went the opposite on my file server, I used a low power G/T series processor (G630T), even with 2 drives it never pulls more than 45 watts  and only then if it's compressing a file from one drive to another. What do you have on your desktop if you want a Threadripper for a server... More importantly, what are you doing with the server that needs Threadripper?

*Who the heck pays those kind of prices for a networking diagram utility, I'm in the wrong business.

I'm currently hosting a few game servers for friends, which I'd like to expand to include a few more games. Running some VMs with various Linux distributions for learning purposes. As it is I'm always running out of available cores.

just picked up an r710

most likely going to slap unRaid on it - play around with docker and VMs.  only problem is where to put it, my IT rack isn't deep enough for a server :/

oh a network diagram of my lab...

*goes to install Visio on work PC*

well not done in Visio, but a reasonably accurate diagram

all solid lines are 10Gbps fiber, big dashed are 1GB copper, others are just informational

this is a conjoined lab between myself and my neighbor+coworker

If I had my wits about me, my 'lab' would probably look something like this. No questions please.

 I JUST bought a r720 that should be here by the end of the week. I'll update with photos/diagrams then
