routing for two servers

i've got two servers, lets call them SERV A & SERV B. 1) each server has it's own unique public ip address. i'm going to use dummy ips to illustrate: SERV A : 33.33.33.33 SERV B : 33.33.33.32 2) each server also has it's own unique private ip address on a separate interface. these private ips share ...

ata_piix boot errors -> ata1: SRST failed

i've got a brand spanking new dell power edge sc440. I've installed centos 5 on it. When i boot i get these messages which are preceded by probably a 1.5 to 2 minute timeout: ata1: port failed to respond ata1: SRST failed (status 0xFF) ata1: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100) ata1: SRST failed (status 0xF...

CentOS 5 and RHEL 5 rpm / yum / driver compatability

I know that CentOS versions are essentially backported RHEL versions. Which would mean that the rpms are mix match between the two for any given version. At least in theory. If I purchase a Dell that has RHEL5 installed with a 1 yr subscription, after that year runs out and I don't want renew the su...

Re: Not seeing all ram in centos 5 install

lenard, my intent is to run a lamp stack. Server will need php optimization tweaks like memcached, apc and similar. Same for mysql. i need to be able to update latest greatest security patches. i'll probably be vhosting multiple users that will need some form of lockdown access (limited ssh or vsftp...

Re: Not seeing all ram in centos 5 install

thanks lenard, couple of followups: 1) is there any way to tell which repo yum pulls the PAE kernel from using a command line option to yum or do you just have to know? 2) since these are two completely separate rpms and they install side by side, then there's no real need to worry about excludes in...

Re: Not seeing all ram in centos 5 install

this still is a limitation i guess. 1) what's the best way to get the PAE kernel? (i'm assuming via yum, if so what repository and are there steps to make sure i'm not reincluding the normal kernel every time i do an update?) 2) also, can i assume that the new PAE kernel will automagically pickup my...

SATA performance and tuning

Outside of hdparm -Tt, are there other methods to gauge the performance of my sata card / hd setup?

Also, can anyone suggest some:

1) good utilities for sata optimization
2) possible tweaks?

thanks

Not seeing all ram in centos 5 install

i've seen OLD posts about this specifying a need for PKA or largemem (or similarly named) kernel to solve this problem. but i'm thinking my recently purchased system plus fresh centos 5 install should be seeing all my ram without the need for a different kernel. Possibly a boot / kernel parm is all ...
