00:57 bene_ yeah
00:57 bene_ i have a pfsense router and i get traffic graphs too
01:13 pdurbin ok. sounds like step 1 for me would be to have a server at home
01:13 pdurbin but I was trying to only have servers in the cloud
01:14 bene_ raspberry pi is a server these days
01:15 pdurbin yeah, I'd want something cheap and small
01:15 bene_ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856205007 <- i bought one of these, reused some RAM from an old laptop and bought a refurb 60 GB SSD as a fanless firewall/IDS
01:16 bene_ but i also have 12 TB of storage in a "real" machine in the basement
01:16 pdurbin seems nice and small:     8.46" x 7.48" x 2.36"
01:17 bene_ atom is x86 so you have a bit more flexibility with OS/apps than on ARM like the pi
01:17 pdurbin could stick it next to my comcast modem
01:18 bene_ if it was going to be my only machine, i'd probably spend a bit more, get a nicer case with some expansion opportunities
01:18 bene_ 12 TB used to be a lot, but you can fit that on 2 disks these days
01:19 bene_ so a mini case + atom motherboard makes a really decent small media/file/backup server
01:19 pdurbin huh. "the ability of an Atom-based system to run 64-bit versions of operating systems such as Ubuntu or Debian GNU/Linux may vary from one motherboard to another" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Atom_%28CPU%29#Intel_64_software_support
01:19 bene_ and runs 20-40 watts of power
01:20 pdurbin bene_: does it run x86_64?
01:20 bene_ yeah, it has a 64-bit pfsense on it
01:20 pdurbin ok
01:21 pdurbin my family will probably say, "don't buy a new toy, just fix the goddamn network"
01:22 bene_ if it was my online machine, i would buy something a bit nicer i think
01:22 bene_ that machine has a crappy, noisy fan on it
01:22 bene_ s/online/only
01:23 pdurbin oh. my comcast router is in my kitchen so it needs to be quiet
01:27 pdurbin maybe I'll just run smokeping on my laptop. it's on a fair amount
01:27 bene_ buy a pi2 kit
01:27 * pdurbin runs sudo apt-get install smokeping
01:28 bene_ $65 on amazon for the board, case, power supply and SD card
01:28 pdurbin bene_: will it run smokeping?
01:28 bene_ fanless, the size of a deck of cards
01:28 bene_ sure, it'll run raspbian which is based on debian
01:28 bene_ pi@retropie ~ $ apt-cache search smokeping
01:28 bene_ smokeping - latency logging and graphing system
01:29 pdurbin ok, cool
01:29 bene_ and you can run retropie and a bazillion ROMs for every console gaming system under the sun
01:29 pdurbin heh
01:30 bene_ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352033&amp;cm_re=fractal_304-_-11-352-033-_-Product <- nice looking mini-itx case
01:31 bene_ 6 drive bays, 2 expansion slots and a slow, quiet 120mm fan
01:31 bene_ pair that with the right atom mobo and it'll be quiet and give you tons of options to add disk, wifi, network cards, whatever
01:31 bene_ and still fit in back of the couch or entertainment center
01:33 pdurbin well, christmas is coming. maybe I'll put a pi2 kit on my list
01:33 pdurbin searchbot: lucky pi2 kit amazon
01:33 searchbot pdurbin: http://www.amazon.com/CanaKit-Raspberry-Complete-Original-Preloaded/dp/B008XVAVAW
01:34 bene_ that's what i bought actually
01:34 pdurbin cool
01:34 * pdurbin gives searchbot a treat
04:15 pdurbin helpful: http://www.gattis.org/Work-and-Tech/service-monitoring-and-security/monitoring/smokeping
04:59 pdurbin ok, I guess I'll let this run for a while
04:59 pdurbin bene_: thanks
11:57 pdurbin bene_: here's my data so far: http://i.imgur.com/Os10GtI.png
18:36 searchbot joined #crimsonfu
18:39 bear if you run redis, please make sure it is not listening on a public network ... http://www.antirez.com/news/96
19:17 mhayden joined #crimsonfu
19:33 pdurbin I've never used redis. I've been meaning to try it out.
