Re: FCoE

You'd want to look at the 5600s or 6000s.

Re: FCoE

Look at some 5Ks. Some/all of the Juniper QFX does it too.

Re: Mac for Network People

I bought my own Retina. When you compare the specs and quality of the hardware, it's less overpriced. They are too fucking expensive though.

Re: Mac for Network People

This is going to get interesting. I hate Apple as much as the next guy, which should make it even more significant that I use a Mac. I've had many Lenovos, Dells, HPs, etc. The feel and function of the hardware really are better on a Mac, IMO. Other than the gestures/mission control (for which I hav...

Re: Mac for Network People

I run a Windows VM in Fusion. Mostly for Office and Visio - Mac Office and Omnigraffle suck.

Mac apps:
iTerm - terminal
Wirehark + XQuartz - duh
Bria 3 - SIP softphone
Colloquy - IRC
MPlayerX - video
CoRD - RDP
Unarchiver - zip/7z/etc
Gimp - photo editing

That's about all I use the Mac side.

Re: Nexus 7700 what do you think?

Where are your user SVIs? I've never been a big fan of hanging FEXs off a campus/user core. I like the separation of functionality. You could do 6Ks as the "DC core" and some 3524s (dirt cheap 10G) for the campus core. The 3524s are pretty sparse on features, but they look really good for ...

Re: what is a "metric"?

It's definitely not in the calculation. I have read that it's used as a tie-breaker (higher MTU is better) if there are equal-cost paths above the max path amount. I've seen seen conflicting information about that though, and I haven't labbed it myself.

Re: what is a "metric"?

EIGRP adds together weighted values of different network link characteristics in order to calculate a metric for evaluating path selection. These characteristics include: • Delay (measured in 10s of microseconds) • Bandwidth (measured in kilobytes per second) • Reliability (in numbers ranging from ...

Re: Nexus 7700 what do you think?

that seems like a good idea depending on how far you have to span your L2. If you do not need the OTV service and maybe port capacity then I can see why you went that path. The expense and white space of 7ks could be over whelming. Can you see switching from vpc over to FP? I could imagine you coul...

Re: what is a "metric"?

Bandwidth and delay are metrics used to calculate the best path. it also can use load, MTU and reliability but bandwidth and delay are the 2 default metrics. try using wireshark to sniff EIGRP traffic. you will see packets from 224.0.0.10 analyze the data inside. MTU isn't part of the DUAL formula.

Re: Nexus 770X what do you think?

Looks pretty sweet. -Fabric has GREATLY improved, scalability is nice. -The f248xp-23e cards do layer 2 as well as layer 3 (instead of getting the M/F cards for the nexus) Have you guys deployed any of these bad boys yet? What do you like/dislike? How well does it play with older nexus lines (I don...

I've seen a couple successful end-to-end FCoE deployments. It's been solid for my customers so far.

Re: Nexus 5K layer 3

Yup, I am buying a 56xx for sure for a upcoming project. Looking at the two the biggest diffrences between them are the 56xx's support native FC and VXLAN support which are huge. I wonder if VXLAN support will ever come to the 6k line. I haven't heard about the 6K getting VXLAN, but it wouldn't sur...

Re: Nexus 5K layer 3

IIRC, it's 16. There's a 16 link port-channel internally between the fabric and the routing card.

Re: Nexus 5K layer 3

No ISSU, less FEX, higher latency, not line-rate, bullshit internal port-channel.

Get a 6K or a 5600 when they start shipping next month.

Re: Show me the money

Consider getting a couple NUCs. If you really want to play with ESX (vMotion, HA, DRS, etc), you'll need multiple servers. You can cram 16gb into each one and boot from a flash drive. I'm using three of these . They have some Haswell models out now, but I haven't researched their compatibility with ...

Re: Show me the money

Just finished up the tax return and getting a nice chunk back. I think I am going to build a box for an ESXi server and get another Synology NAS with SSD drives for storing the VMs. If you are getting money back, what are you spending yours on? What server(s) are you getting? I built a 3xNUC ESX en...
