DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-08
leaf.dragonflybsd.org (the general shell box) has been upgraded to an
AMD64 box. In particular, a K8V based tower with an Athlon 3200+
in it, overclocked by 10%. It is much faster then the old leaf.
crater.dragonflybsd.org (the main site / cvs repository) is probably
going to be upgraded tuesday night from its current sludgy 2xCPU VALinux
box to a 1xCPU AMD XP 2600+ Shuttle cube. The XP 2600+ is a fairly
low-end cpu but it still beats the living daylights out of the old
The upgrades give me a chance to reduce power consumption in my
machine room, throw in larger disks, faster cpus, upgrade crater
from FreeBSD to DragonFly, run GigE, and keep spare boxes and disks
around to deal with failures. Plus it's always fun to occassionally
rip up and rewire a machine room :-)
The UPS work I did a few days ago was also successful. My UPS properly
reset its time estimator so it lasts a good 30 minutes now after a power
failure rather then the 3 minutes it was doing before.
