Are you guys aiming for an Anandtech-style client/server backend for heavy server loads? Piping lots of network traffic over 40G (but with what additional equipment if so?)?
And no you can't have any of my Smartbits.

Question about test methods, perhaps there is something wriiten about tests performed.
My question deals with safe amount of free disk space.
Perhaps my imagination, but it seems if my free space drops below 30 gigs i start having issues.
Running osx snow leopard, on 8 yr old machine, abt a 4 yr old hard drive, 750 g
I wonder if disk reliabilty drops, for example as drive uses more of inner or outer sectors
Specifically, something is now happening where there is a lot of disk activity, in some cases filling disk such as filling a log, a restart clears abt 25 gigs.
Today i'll clear about 15 more gigs.
Smart status shows veified, hw diagnostics pass, even with extended test
(And I know, time for a new machine, waited 2 years too long, but hopefully well backed up)
Just seems I have experienced this in past
In testing hard drives , do the tests do heavy continuous seeking?

I have a Lenovo RD630. One of my Hitachi SAS drives wont work? Do these Lenovo servers require 'Lenovo' drives only?
What gives? thanks

Pretty much everything under the sun is compatible with the LSI RAID card they use.

That's what I thought. My RD630 won't take a drive past the 0 slot... Lenovo is shipping me a new backplane, they already sent me a new raid card.
Hopefully that will fix it.
