MFS - Moose File System

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingJust when you thought that zfs was the end in the many filesystems saga, along comes MFS - Moose File System. From the web page:
MFS is a networking, distributed file system. It spreads data over several physical localizations (servers), which are visible to a user as one resource. For standard file operations MFS acts as other Unix-alike file systems. It has hierarchical structure (directory tree), stores file attributes(permissions, last access and modification times) and makes it possible to create special files (block and character devices, pipes and sockets), symbolic links (file names pointing to other files accessible locally, not necessarily on MFS) and hard links (different names of files which refer to the same data on MFS).
  • higher reliability (data can be stored in several copies on separate computers)
  • dynamically expanding disk space by attaching new computers/disks
  • the possibility of storing deleted files for a defined period of time ("trash can" service on a file system level)
  • the possibility of creating a snapshot of a file, which means a coherent copy of the whole file, even while the file is being written
Works on FreeBSD, Linux and MAC OS X. And probably a lot of other unix-like systems.

FreeBSD and 3G / HSDPA cards

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingIn case you want to run a 3G / HSDPA card on your FreeBSD machine, the article 3G/HSDPA cards supported by FreeBSD from shapeshifter.se will be useful. Also, you might need the patch from PR usb/118686, which was mentioned in FreeBSD and the Huawei E220 USB G3 Modem. There is also a u3g driver. For NetBSD, I guess this is already supported. See NetBSD PR 37692.

dmt and dmt-ux

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingDMT (DSL Modem Tool) and dmt-ux are useful diagnostic tools if you have one of the supported devices. For dmt-ux (unix) that seems to be Thomson Speedtouch and compatible devices. DMT (windows only) supports a wider range of devices.
