00:01<Ikaros>trippeh: Heh. NTFS is NTFS, after all. A cleaner drive tends to run a bit better, at least.
00:01<Ikaros>This is the only Windows-based system in my entire place. Everything else, even my personal laptop, runs some form of Linux.
00:12<Cromulent>I'm surprised you are still running mechanical drives in this day and age
00:13<Zimsky>wow Cromulent, not everyone has hundreds of thousands of pounds like you
00:13<Cromulent>errr SSDs are pretty cheap these days
00:13<Zimsky>and HDDs are cheaper

01:01<Ikaros>Cromulent: Let's just say I still have...uncertainties...regarding quality of SSDs. I tend to have heavy usage requirements on drives, lots of I/O (usually involving torrents), and that bothers me. These drives I have now, I've had for a while, and they're still running strong. At least with these I know how much punishment they can take.
01:01<Cromulent>fair play
01:02<nate>So get an HDD for those things, and SSD for other things
01:02<Cromulent>I have to admit I'm somewhat disappointed with my NVMe drive - I think next time I buy a computer I'll just go back to a SATA SSD
01:02<nate>I roll my OS on an SSD, most other things (like games) on HDD's with exception of online-oriented games (I have a separate SSD for those)
01:03<Ikaros>I get it, trust me, SSDs are hella quicker, don't have parts to break, but the tradeoff is they do only have a finite number of write cycles. I'd rather not have my OS complaining at me one day.
01:03<Ikaros>...not that it doesn't already about other things... >.>

01:05<nate>Yeah but you can buy more 'industrial' ish SSD's designed for that (basically the kinda stuff I imagine linode would be rolling)
01:06<nate>Just check out the specs on some and try to calculate what you do yearly, they usually post their 'expected' lifetime read/write limits
01:07<Peng>Sure if you're rich af

01:08-!-mode/#linode [+l 342] by ChanServ
01:08<Ikaros>Yeah, unfortunately, I'm not among those.
01:09<Ikaros>Not even remotely close.
01:09<Peng>Even consumer SSDs should last forever with a moderate amount of writing, I think?
01:09<Ikaros>Well the tech has certainly improved since its inception.
01:10<Ikaros>I'm just more concerned about brand.
01:10<Ikaros>A manufacturer could tell me one thing and the next thing I know I'm ending up with one that didn't even last HALF as long as claimed.
01:11<Peng>Honest Brian's Used Cars And Memory?
01:11<Ikaros>If I were to pick from a manufacturer for an SSD, who would you say I should try first, as a first-timer to SSDs?
01:12<Zimsky>Shenzhen Electric Co
01:12<Ikaros>I mean the big thing I look for with any piece of hardware is its reliability, obviously. So I tend to stray from manfacturers that I've not had an overall good experience with.
01:12<Zimsky>first ask yourself, do you really need SSDs?
01:12<Zimsky>you can get pretty good speed with mechanical drives
01:12<Peng>Everyone needs SSDs
01:13<Zimsky>I look forward to you financing our storage needs
01:14<dcraig>SS Deeez Nutz!!
01:14<dcraig>I've never had an SSD go bad...
01:15<dcraig>samsung seems popular
01:15<Zimsky>you have to plug them in first
01:15<Peng>Intel is best, right? And most expensive?
01:15<Zimsky>you can't hang them from weather balloons and expect them to work as your cloud storage
01:17<Ikaros>Hm. Yeah, I was thinking that a bit, friend of mine has a Samsung-made SSD that he was showing off to me early last year, he seems to be happy with its performance and endurance.
01:17<dcraig>my work laptop, personal laptop, and personal desktop all came with samsung
01:17<dcraig>and all 3 of these computers turn on
01:18<Ikaros>Though it's only the write cycles that are finite...if I understand the tech correctly? I apologize, SSDs aren't something I'm 100% familiar with, I just know they have finite write cycles (usually a shitload)
01:18<Ikaros>That's about it
01:18<dcraig>where are all these SSDs that are dying from too many writes?
01:19<dcraig>this seems like something people worried about 10 years ago?
01:19<Peng>I gave it a good try, but my Linode host survived, and I don't do much disk I/O anymore.
01:22<trippeh> I've killed a few 840 EVOs
01:22<trippeh>those were pretty bad.

01:25-!-mode/#linode [+l 341] by ChanServ
01:26<trippeh>they ran a local ubuntu package mirror, so would have a bit of writes on every archive sync, but nothing massive.
01:26<dcraig>Ikaros, maybe get two SSDs, so you have a backup
01:27<millisa>samsung 850's should be dropping in price (the 860's started showing up for consumers a few weeks ago)
01:27<Ikaros>That was my thought. My concern though is would I still be able to actually read from the thing once it stopped writing. Like I said I don't fully understand this yet, I came up around mechanical drives.
01:27<trippeh>varies from vendor and type of failure
01:29<Ikaros>So starting out, should I go with a Samsung one, or would you recommend something else to start with?
01:29<millisa>(the new 860's are supposed to be about double the endurance, too)
01:29<Zimsky>I feel that provides some good explanations
01:30<Zimsky>obviously there's other factors that can affect mechanicals
01:33<millisa>Ikaros: I've had an intel 330 fail (not readable), and one sandisk fail (electrical short to chassis, lots of smoke and melting, data fully recovered with some soldering). zero samsungs failed (maybe 20 bought for self or friends)
01:33<millisa>if the anedotal stuff does it for you
01:33<millisa>er, anecdotal
01:34<Ikaros>I'm looking to build a new system soon-ish so I might actually explore this route this time around.
01:34<millisa>samsung pro/evo difference is largely endurance and warranty
01:35<millisa>most of the newer ssd's are throwing 5 year warranties on which probably says something for their confidence
01:36<Ikaros>Well I would hope so. The tech's certainly greatly improved since SSDs first became a thing, yes?
01:36<trippeh>recent intel consumer ssds will just stop writing when reaching the write spec, even if your writes were very flash friendly and the chips in reality has lots of cycles left.
01:36<millisa>definitely has. and if you are doing a new build, the new m2 nvme drives are ridiculously fast
01:36<Ikaros>trippeh something like a protection circuit built-in to ensure you can still pull data from it for a new drive, something like that?
01:37<trippeh>it does make the failure mode more predictable, yes
01:37<trippeh>or should.
01:38<Ikaros>Yeah this is the part I'm not looking forward to, lol. Any new build I'm gonna have to place on credit. That's gonna saddle me with debt for some time to come. :x
01:39<millisa>i'm just hoping that the crypto slid keeps going enough that video cards get affordable again.
01:40<trippeh>my old 2009 Intel X25-M's are still going strong with like 4% of cycles spent :p
01:41<trippeh>pretty good for 9 years.

01:44<trippeh>Ikaros: flash endurance has actually gotten much worse over the years. however the ssd controllers have been quite good at mitigating it.
01:45<trippeh>so for the vast amount of workloads it is a non-issue

12:35<@mcintosh>Harry: you'll need to upgrade your linode to a larger plan to get more storage - if your Linode is in Fremont it can also utilize Block Storage
12:36<tafa2>kezimo I'm making an educated guess here
12:36<tafa2>but I think TPM is hardware based
12:36<kezimo>yes, it is
12:36<tafa2>thats why
12:36<kezimo>but each TPM chip has a unique RSA key
12:36<kezimo>meaning that there is some centra database that can be used to decrypt the drive
12:36<kezimo>veracrypt is FOSS software
12:37<tafa2>I believe that hardware based solutions are better protected than software

14:12<Guest3933>Hi, can I get an official response on this? I would like to know if Linode would ever under any circumstances consider it acceptable to plan disruptive maintenance such as a hypervisor reboot during business hours?
14:14<emerson>keep in mind that all hours are business hours for some part of the world
14:14<Guest3933>Okay that's a dumb response, I hope that isnt the official response

16:14<jax_>ok, thx
16:15<jax_>I need a hosting company that will let me have a normal PHP account (php7 or php5.6(?) ), but will allow me to send ajax request to a local python app, let the py app do its stuff and send a response back.
16:16-!-ntox__away [] has quit [Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…]
16:16<hawk>jax_: You can do pretty much anything. But you're setting all that stuff up yourself.
16:16<jax_>I currently have such an account with a different hosting company, but their cust support is not there. I ask questions, and they may or may not be available to answer - sometimes no response for days.
16:16<jax_>I am a PHP guy and need some extra assistance getting this setup/configured. Is Linode a good choice?
16:16-!-mode/#linode [+l 344] by ChanServ
16:17<millisa>These are unmanaged vps's. Linode gives you the resources for you to spinup your own linux that you configure/manage.
16:17-!-biesbjerg [] has quit [Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…]

16:47<dubidub>not sshd?
16:47<Peng>No, they call the service ssh
16:48<Peng>I don't know. It's pretty typical, though.
