    What happens when there are no more ipv4 addresses left?

    It's not only about hoping that Ford and others give back their /8, it's also about the global routing table is growing a lot. Many of you may remember the 512k day... in a few years we will hit 1M, then the issues will be even bigger. What I want to say is, that the amount of addresses isn't...

    Layer 3 Lite vs Layer 2 (Netgear). Help please.

    Junipers are rock solid. I have tons of EX4200 myself and never encountered such issue.

    Skills needed to work in datacenters?

    Working in a DC for about 2.5 yrs. Did pretty much everything: building and racking servers, dealing with customers, working with switches and routers (BGP), coding on internal systems (PHP, python), inventing new products, etc. As a few have already said, I like to see more folks really being...

    Private Network

    Honestly yes? Why would I give my network away for free? Just because I have no transit/transport/IX port costs, it doesn't mean I have no costs at all... think of switches, skilled staff 24/7

    Microsoft Azure’s use of non-US IPv4 address space in US regions

    Exactly. Also, they just got in early May this year. Kinda doubt they need 500k+ addresses in just one month.

    Is that a normal iowait level for spinning disks?

    Just taken a shower and wondering... that page was almost statically? You could throw some Varnish(+Cloudflare) in? Varnish works completely in-memory. No more issues regarding disk i/o. Varnish perfectly works up to a couple of Gbit/s, then only Nginx can help (8-9/Gbit/s). I had a quite busy...

    Is that a normal iowait level for spinning disks?

    I probably remember which site you are talking about :D However, glad to hear it is solved now. :) By the way, nginx access logs are kinda async, means they will never impact your visitors browsing the website. The logs are being written in the background. But you are right, turning them off is...

    Is that a normal iowait level for spinning disks?

    We need more information to give an opinion about how normal this iowait rate is. It really depends on what you do with the server. Try iotop, top, etc. If you are writing a lot, it can be normal. Also, spinning disks have a limit of often less than 100 iops while SSDs are fine with 50k. So if...

    ARIN POWER OUTAGE: Dealing with the best! However, our requests took 2-3 weeks most of the time. The current one is probably going to take 2-3 months I guess (about what kind of info they asked)
