Rough day. We've had 4 machines with failed RAID sets to sort out, plus a rather important admin box with a bizarre filesystem fault plus another box which freezes almost randomly. All good fun.

I'm starting to wonder how anyone can use FreeBSD in a production environment. Ports is useful for installing but nearly useless for maintaining a server.

I've been chatting with a client to whom we sold a couple of dual Opteron boxes. They're having trouble saturating the servers with enough work. That's a good thing, I think :)


I've been messing with the 2.6 test kernels at home with little success. I use Debian and there seems to be some issues with the packaged version of the hotplug software. I've not really investigated all that deeply yet, though.
