Hello SNO World and My thoughts!

Ollo! SNO from West, USA

Glad to be part of the bleeding edge. Always some cuts along the journey. Great sacrifice comes great reward. Current setup is a basic proof of concept before moving to a legit node.

High resiliency options. Why choose high resiliency vs none?

My argument would be resiliency is your investment protection. Think of resiliency as insurance. The more insurance you have typically the better coverage you have in case something goes wrong.

“Everything is great when everything is working, it’s when its not, how does it recover?”

Resiliency does the same thing for you node availability and reputation.

Hypervisor: Proxmox or Hyper-V (Windows 2019 Datacenter)
File System: ZFS vs Storage Space Direct
Storage: HBA -> JBOD or Server Contained (Hyper converged)
Stack: Cluster vs None
VM: Linux, Windows, Boot2Docker

My thought is down to two choices, want to hear others on my findings.
Hyper-V, Storage Space Direct, HBA->JBOD, Cluster, Boot2Docker
Hyper-V, Storage Space Direct, Server Contained, Cluster, Boot2Docker

Monitoring/Alerting: Looking at two options: NetXMS Server/Agent/Subagent+Grafana and Prometheus+Grafana

Will keep adding my thoughts here. All I have time for today!

That’s a nice list for start, hope some other people will jump in with theirs, one can always learn about new/alternate software that others are using.

I use vSphere for the Hypervisor. Hyper-V is not something I personally would recommend to use. As for system monitoring for performance (not uptime), I use netdata via Docker. I also use Uptime Robot.

SN Specs:
Kubuntu/Docker running under vSphere 6.7
8c/16t @ 2.4GHz
24GB DDR3 (hypervisor has 128GB to work with)
Storage Space allocated to the SN: 3TB

As for the thoughts you had on Storage layout, I personally would use the HBA route, but that’s me.

I use Debian as a OS, InfluxDB as a DB backend, Grafana as a GUI frontend and collectd as lightweight daemon for collecting neccessary metrics from watching computers.
Alerting i have setup in Grafana, as a notification agent i use Telegram bot (via curl it is possible sent messages from computers or Grafana to me on Telegram). Telegram have clients on all my using platforms.
Of course, storagenode is different computer, like monitoring computer :).
