<muppis>
I know this is totally unrelated, but you've played with virtual machines as well. Ever tried (wonder was there a need at all) to run Windows XP Mode -virtual in Virtualbox?
07:57
Virtual itself runs fine, but it bargs about activation.
07:58
<highvoltage>
Well, you need a full Windows license that lets you run it in a VM for it to work properly.
08:01
<muppis>
It's same VM wich MS provides for Windows XP Mode in Windows 7.
08:01
Installation package provides Product ID.
08:01
<highvoltage>
does its license allow you to run it outside of Windows 7?
08:02
<muppis>
Propably not. :D

leaving again for two weeks in just a few hours
17:51
and you, everything okay?
17:52
<jammcq>
yep, things are good. Looking forward to a great 2015.

<championofcyrodi>
i have a really open ended question....
19:27
approx. how many LTSP Ubuntu FAT clients can I run on a core 2 duo w/ 8GB RAM?
19:27
basically, nbd, ssh, nfs...
19:29
<highvoltage>
fat clients don't use much RAM or CPU, so short answer... a few dozen but it really depends more on your disk and network bandwidth
19:29
<championofcyrodi>
a few dozen is currently more than enough...
19:30
1Gbps..
19:30
sata II... ~300GB disk
19:30
i'm thinking the biggest hit will be NFS mounted home folders.
19:30
since nbd caches on client no?
19:30
<highvoltage>
yeah that's where the disk bandwidth come in. 10 people start libreoffice at the same time and suddenly your disks effective bandwidth per user becomes 300KB/s.
19:31
<championofcyrodi>
sounds good... most of my users will be running chrome, terminal, tmux and NX client.
19:31
and thunderbird
19:32
basically i have a docker container running ubuntu-ltsp on a severely over provisioned server with dual hex core, 128GB RAM, 2 SSDs, and more... wanting to use that server for something else.
19:32
so i'm just going to rsync /opt and /home... and commit the container to my registry... and pull it down to this weaker machine... then switch the TFTP host...
19:32
and i *think* that should do it?
19:33
i have tftpd + dhcp running elsewhere.

<vmlintu>
championofcyrodi: if you are using normal hard drives and are worried about hard drive performance, you can use dmcache with ssd cache for hdd+ssd combination on lvm partitions.
21:27
<championofcyrodi>
vmlintu: sweet!
21:33
<vmlintu>
championofcyrodi: here's some information about it: https://github.com/opinsys/dmcache-utils
21:34
<championofcyrodi>
i heard the intel z97 mobos support ssd caching on top of hdd at the hardware level... to give you a logical drive w/ SSD cache.
21:35
havent tried it yet though. (don't have a z97 mobo) vmlintu:
21:38
<vmlintu>
haven't heard about that
21:39
mostly I've been using dmcache in 2xhdd+ssd combination where hdd's are in raid-1 and ssd caches a single partition on raid-1 lvm volume
