Re: B2 Power Supply

Can I just add a perhaps irrelevant and stupid question here? I've owned every "Bubba" product ever produced by Excito. The power-units have always been slightly different. Understandable: Excito have found better sub-providers for your parts - which means less production cost, and more money for Ex...

Re: [Cancelled] OpenProducts to take over Excito B3 product

My guess is this: We have a product that is marketed as an easy-to-use home appliance that any Windows, Mac, or Linux user can set up and use without fuss. The fact that it can do so much more that being a NAS, and that the majority of owners use it for so much more, and you cannot make it do what y...

Re: Hard drive speed test

This got me a bit interested due to my recent disk-fiddlery (probably more disks than Excito ever imagined attached to the B3, conversion to EXT4, etc). So I replicated Johannes test: root@b3:/home/niklas# dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/storage/test bs=8k count=100000 100000+0 records in 100000+0 records ...

...and I could never be bothered with such an effort :-)
Most things use WiFi. Things that need Ethernet cables are close enough. Except one - and for that the D-Link adapter does an excellent job.

Re: B2 + B3

I realize that the wiring inside a CAT5 cable is quite small in diameter, so it won't handle too much power, but the question is how much will it take? A regular phone line will go up to 60 volts and above while ringing, so voltage shouldn't be an issue, but could it handle enough VA to power somet...

May I do it again sometime? :mrgreen: You just did. I was just editing my last post, when I got an email about you already responding to it. Too fast for me.

Re: B2 + B3

Thanks for your feedback guys! That OpenUPS thing really looks interesting. But what Gordon wrote in his last post made me a bit dizzy in the head for a while there. My conclusion is: - My set-up is not the most energy-efficient, even if it is the most silent one I have ever managed (and I've never ...

Re: B2 + B3

Interesting that you should ask just that! I've just the last couple of days had a long correspondence with my father about this, and he had to consult one of his even nerdier friends. According to the UPS that everything is hooked up to: 15% of its nominal capacity, which is 350 VA. Now I have very...

Re: Has anyone tried converting a large B3 LVM system to ext

A little update on the ext4 performance: I recently bought a 3rd S1 disk cabinet, and today I installed another 3TB WD Green into it. I divided it into several LVM partitions and added 3 of them to the LV: sudo lvextend bubba/storage /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb2 /dev/sdb3 Each of the above partitions are 500...

Re: [SOLVED] [Old] WD Green Power drives may kill themselves

Hi Gordon, I've had to do this manually on every new disk, both the replacement disk inside the B3 itself, and in all the new S1 disks I've bought after this "patch" was introduced. I posted the steps a few posts up - and Ubi, you are right, shut it down properly afterwards: sudo /usr/lib/web-admin/...
