hello, I am currently setting up a home server. It will be my main storage server, but I will also be consolidating other applications on it (voip server, video streaming, app server, ...) I plan to use a Quad-core processor (namely the Q6600) with 8GB of RAM.
I have been reading all the docs I can find about resource management but there are still some areas unclear to me: - Can capped-cpu and cpu-share be used at the same time: It there is no contention Z1 use only 3 cpu and Z2 3 cpus max, but if there is contention have 75/25% sharing? - What is ZFS cpu usage ? (How much cpu should I reserve for the global zone ?) More specifically, my setup would be something like: Global zone: ZFS storage, NFS and Samba servers VOIP Zone: SIP PBX : should always have enough processing power to handle a few calls (home setup) download zone: handles all downloads (torrent /http). Low priority. Video streaming zone : use VLC to stream videos on the network (maybe later some VOD). Video encoding zone : should use all available cpus but low priority Database Zone: MySQl and/or Postgresql App Server Zone: SAMP stack and/or Glassfish I do not expect high load on these zones (this is not a business production server, mainly a development environment and home application with few concurrent calls). I am a bit at a loss on how to implement this. Is FSS and cpu-shares enough ? Should I use resource pools ? dynamic resource pools ? Thanks for your help, Vincent
