Re: RP4 Cluster Hardware?

I would think a vendor would be under contract for selling WH. And I agree, it's a liability. I don't have any analysis on performance/cost between a Zero setup and a RP4 setup. The latter was lightly referred to in something written about the RP4 rollout. https://www.techrepublic.com/article/low-co...

Re: RP4 Cluster Hardware?

Ya the network boot is quite intriguing and I would have to assess how to net boot for more than 255 items (subnet). Not too clear on that one. I've seen 3U or 4U banks of multiple Zeros that way. Are the purchase limits on the Zero still applicable? How has that restriction changed? I know their pr...

Re: RP4 Cluster Hardware?

Ya running virtual machines isn't the goal. it's about distributed processing for webservers. Getting a server to fake multiple servers doesn't increase the speed of a setup. It seems a performance/cost assessment might be to go with RP4s with minimal 2 GB.

Re: RP4 Cluster Hardware?

That's a good point. It's a web setup pointing back to a back end database. If I could cluster a bunch of Zeros together, that would be excellent, but they need Ethernet. I'd rather have these all on board as opposed to hats, and nothing wireless. So for now, The RP4 is full gigabit Ethernet. I coul...

RP4 Cluster Hardware?

Hi folks.

Anybody know of any rackmount cluster hardware solutions for the RP4? If I am correct, these RP4s are not limited to one per company anymore, am I correct?

Cheers

Re: How can I Make Space?

Hi there. Thanks for the replies.

First, I flashed the SD card and just started up.

Second:

Code: Select all

rm: cannot remove `/var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb': No such file or directory
/var/cashe/apt is 35 MB only.

How can I Make Space?

Hi folks. I want to install Ruby 2.2.1 and I've taken out the normal Ruby 1.9.3, which is...ancient. I took it out because RVM was complaining about space. So I had a look and it's quite confusing: [email protected] / $ sudo du -h -d1 555M ./opt 5.2M ./bin 215M ./var 109M ./lib 1.5G ./usr 12K ./tmp 6.3...

Re: Snappy Broken Code

Fixed. Had to set the date. No ntp server set yet.

Code: Select all

sudo date --set="Sun Mar 8 6:21:00 EST 2015"
Alternative:

Code: Select all

sudo timedatectl set-ntp true
However, I am not sure if it works or not.

Re: PI 2 Startup LEDs?

OK but I see that as passing the buck. The hardware requirements are what they are. Coupled with past-model explanations of hardware choices and ports, it does become confusing.

Ok, then here's some clarity. 1. According to the website, Snappy Debian (or whatever anybody wants to call it) is an approved OS. Any OS on the Pi website (or whatever anybody wants to call it) could be assumed (or whatever anybody wants to call it) is approved. Given the fact that it's expected th...

Didn't get a box as it was twice the cost of the computer. I now read you can't use an adapter cable. So now I have to buy an HDMI monitor or buy a box. That's hugely inconvenient.

I'm running over the LAN anyway.

So I bought an HDMI->VGA adapter. Set it up, plugged it in. Nothing. Is there any flashing LEDs that I need to watch...
