Footprint Reduction

May First/Peope Link has servers located in two cabinets: XO and Telehouse. In order to save costs (and electricity) we are exploring the possibility of combining both cabinets by moving the servers in XO to our cabinet in Telehouse.


Following are the electricity using machines in each cabinet. RAM used is calculated by kvm-status to find out how much RAM is allowed to virtual machines on each server as a very rought measure of capacity.


Login to either odetta or ochs (see remotely turning on/off servers).

Server name RAM Used/Capacity Notes
*clr* 27 / 32 Move as is
*malaka* 56 / 64 Move as is
*pietri* 26 / 32 Move as is

Servers already turned off:

  • fred

  • A new server with 128GB RAM could handle the capacity of axiom, bolivar and negri (67 GB). These are our only remaining machines with only 2 disks.
