Oracle Exadata v2 — Truly Oracle (Sun) Hardware
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Update 16-Sep-09: Apparently, all this was true and you can find more details after the announcement that posted here.

OK. It’s not often that I make predictions these days but this was on my mind for a while so here we go. Mind you, I don’t have any confirmed insider information so it’s based on some assumptions, my perspective on Oracle-Sun acquisition and some vibes I can feel in the air.

The rumors are …

Debian unstable on a Sun Fire T1000
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So i got the T1000 working again (finally, after much screwing about trying to get the part). I then hit the ever annoying “no console” problem, where the console didn’t work – kind of problematic.

After a firmware upgrade, and passing “console=/dev/ttyS0″ to the kernel, things work.

So the T1000 firmware 6.3 doesn’t work with modern debian kernels. Thing swork with 6.7 though.

Script to start lots of MySQL Cluster nodes on Sparc CMT
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently had the chance to play with the new T5140 servers. Using the Sparc CMT architecture, these servers present an amazing 128 cpu's to you to use (as a combination of cores and compute threads, there are 2 sockets only).

We are doing some trials with eager Sun customers who want to utilize these babies. The good news is that MySQL Cluster 7.0 (aka 6.4) will support a multi-threaded data node option. The bad news is, one ndbd process still only uses about 8 CPU cores, so to utilize 128, there is some way to go! So the bad news is we still have to launch many ndbd processes to get out the full power of these boxes. But the good news is that with …
