The Attic/Legacy Info




We have 6 vossi machines. They are intended to be used as developer playgrounds since they have system resources far greater than the usual Developer laptop.

Installed OSes

Machine OS Use CentOS Developer Playground Ubuntu 18.04 Yuri's using this one CentOS dmick, yaarit, Junior, others RHEL 8.1 Developer Playground CephFS Team Fedora 31 Yehuda & Chris Hoffman Ubuntu 20.04 Developer Playground Core (RADOS) Team

Use Suggestions (for devs)

Here are some suggestions to maximize the use of the system resources these machines provide.

Scare off other devs :)

Create an MOTD that displays whenever anyone logs in:

vim /etc/motd



           This machine was promised to Joe Dev for exclusive use.

Check to
          see if there are any others available for exclusive use.

      Let dmick or akraitman know if you need a different OS installed.



Building Ceph on an SSD

If you want to build Ceph on an SSD (the main OS and /home are on a spinner), find an SSD that's not in use (sd{b..e}), then:

mkdir -p ~/src
sudo mkfs.xfs /dev/sde
sudo mount /dev/sde ~/src

Then clone ceph.git to ~/src and do your thing.
