if you like pretty graphs, you should try netdata sometime.

I actually don't. Proxmox graphs are *just* right. They tell me a few pertinent details without overwhelming me with data.

I'm more of a "by the seat of my pants," kind of guy. I do a lot of my work on intuition and brute force. It has been effective - but in the industry - I really drive the A Type Data Miners nuts.

In unrelated news - it looks like we lost both Disboardia and Smashbot. I mean, they're both still up - but they're running different BBS software now.

Sounds like i need to get off my butt and put The Village back on the open-net again, and work around the DoS.

Well I hope that they'll keep coming around here from time to time even if they're not running the software.

Subject: Docker. Grumble.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

  • 12 core xeon, dedicated for mining and AI experiments. ( in this case CPU only, not using the GPU ). hash rate around 3k  ( dont mater if that is good or bad, its baseline for what comes next )
  • Only allocated 6 threads, so machine is barley loaded 1/2 way. ( not out to pound crypto, just playing with some things )
  • Thought id mess around with something that might eat CPU so didnt want to use my desktop. ( a DHT scanner )
  • Installed docker. Nothing else yet.
  • Hash-rate dropped down to 1300...   Really?
  • Killed the service, no change.  
  • Removed Docker, ( and a reboot ) back up to 3k.

 

 

One more reason not to like docker.

Weird. I wonder if it was Docker itself or all of the cgroup and other stuff that needs to be present for Docker to run.

But yeah ... containers aren't exactly resource-efficient compared to running software directly. That's not what it's for.

I wasn't even running an app inside docker yet...  this was running on the host native. 

Sure, i expect things to drop if i was running stuff within the container, its why i was going to use docker in this case, in theory zero impact after i was done messing around. Just wipe the container and move on. But i had not even got to the point of even pulling the container down.  Installed docker, down my rates went.. 

I tried the same experiment on a totally different box ( one of my arm machines, so rates were far lower to start with.. but still measurable ), same thing happened and the overall host performance dropped simply by installing docker.   Would it have been a huge deal in the real world where it was *all* containers, i suspect not, but it was detectable and noticeable, which is dumb.

yay backup day.. ( at least once a month, move files to the archive drive. then sync that to the long term drive that is brought on site just for the backup.  Then 'personal stuff' like pictures, go on to yet another drive ( flash ) and locked away in a fireproof safe..  ya, im paranoid.

Something i ran across the other day. Opensource ( seems legit ) helps you mange your data center server infrastructure.  While i dont need it in my current world, it looks interesting and I may setup a test lab to play with it, with 4 or 5 VM throwaway servers. 

RDP, TCP tunnels, inventory, automation. bla bla.

My favorites in that space are OpenDCIM (for the rack stuff) and NetBox (for the resources).

VMUG Members -

 

As you’re aware, VMware announced today it has entered an agreement to be acquired by Broadcom. If the transaction is completed, the Broadcom Software Group will rebrand and operate as VMware – the brand we as members know and trust. As VMware users and advocates, our independent community plays an important role in understanding and sharing what this means for our members. We will continue to provide relevant news and resources as they become available.

Yeah, that'll be a pain in the neck to pull back apart after Broadcom, like all of VMware's previous owners, realizes that it was a bad idea.

VMware pissed me off long ago when they were buying everything they could and not working enough on their core product.  THEN out of the blue, getting rid of it all. "its not part of our core business, out it goes". That was about the same time that i got out of supporting it at the office.

The product i support, they owned it for a bit ( ok, actually SMC did, and didnt know what to do with it after they ripped the workflow engine out for use in vRA, and some SMC product that i forget the name of, so gave it to VMware "here, this is yours, do something with it".. Then during the purge gave it back to the original company, after they gutted the staff, but now had 10x the customer base to support somehow.  )

The other thing they had was an opensource dev tool that they absorbed, which I really liked, and they kept it open + paid support while they had it, which was nice. Then during the purge they sold it to a company that forked and closed it.  ( wavemaker )
