More UPS questions

Having read through a rather lengthy post earlier with regards to UPS within this topic, i thought id start a new one up. As i have a few additional questions. Sorry if some come across as rather newbie but its an area that iv never really looked into before.
As of the late the power supply round here has been very poor, living out in the sticks doesn't help. We often have outages along with a low supply. Lights dim etc. I understand this does more harm then just a straight power outage as there is nothing worse then a electrical item not getting a full and healthy supply. Which is why i'm starting to think my little 4 socket surge protection bar is a little inadequate. Soon im going to be upgrading to a Mac Pro, which i will be implementing a Raid 0 which further more encourages me to get a UPS. Not only because of the value of the MP but raid arrays are more susceptible to damage in the event of power problems which is something i can certainly do with out.
So im weighing up between the APC RS1000 or RS1500. AS Ned and others seem to highly rate these units. I am also considering the equivalent belkin units the 1000VA and 1500VA. (F6C1000eiTW-RK & F6C1500eiTW-RK) There is nothing really between the units on spec or price from what i can make out. Except i prefer the physical look of the Belkin units. Not that it makes much difference really. Is there any reason to steer away from the belkins, any horror stories? Or reasons why the APC units are better?
How much runtime would i get from say a 1500VA unit, running a Mac Pro, 2.66, 4 Hard drives, 1900XT, 4GB Ram, hooked up to a 23" Cinema display. Also supporting a Netgear all in one modem/router/switch. And possibly some other light draw peripherals. Also leaving room for future expansion.
My final questions, most of the UPS i have looked at have 6/8 IEC connectors on the back, as opposed to standard plug sockets. I can understand why this is so as servers etc have these style power plugs, but how can i plug my stuff straight into it. As in standard house hold items that have normal plugs on the end of all there leads. Like my router and my monitor. Do i need some sort of adapters to convert my plug sockets to a 3 pin IEC (kettle lead?) connections. Its baffled me a bit, probably a stupid question. But one that had to be asked. Thank you to everyone in advance for your input. Cheers Adam

So, guessing you'd get around 15 minutes with the same setup with a 1500VA unit.
That is fine, 15 minutes would give me ample time, and if i were not present at my machine i would rely on the UPS energy profile to shut the system down safely. Which i understand i can do. Using the USB interface that is on most modern UPS's. Clever stuff i like that feature.
As for the D-type connectors on the back, you do get a number (anywhere from 2 to 4) of these cable to easily connect items like your Mac Pro and display.
These included cables are they like a male kettle lead one end and female the other. So they can plug straight into the back of the mac pro? Or is it a cable that converts IEC to standard electrical socket. Which i can plug the standard mac pro power cable into this? I was under the impression the Mac pro didn'nt like being used with any think but its own power cable? Maybe thats an old wives tale. The only thing that uses a kettle lead is the mac pro. Everything else including my moniter which cable is hardwired into the back of the monitor has a standard 3 pin uk plug on the end. As you can see this area has me somewhat confused, as most house hold items now have built in wires with normal plugs on the end. So surely a decent UPS with 6/8 normal uk plug sockets on, would suit me better? if such a thing exists?
Which is why i guess you have done this:
For other items which require standard female socket I just made my own cables adapter cables to go from the D-type to a standard female into which I plug in a power board.
Taken a normal power bar being 4/6 socket strip and wired an IEC connector to the bars lead instead of the standard plug? Do i understand you correctly there?
Again sorry Ned for my stupidy with regards to this. Just seem to be having trouble getting my head round it. Cheers Pob

  • A Simpler, More Direct Question About Merge Joins

    This thread is related to Merge Joins Should Be Faster and Merge Join but asks a simpler, more direct question:
    Why does merge sort join choose to sort data that is already sorted? Here are some Explain query plans to illustrate my point.
      2  SELECT * FROM spoTriples ORDER BY s;
    |   0 | SELECT STATEMENT |              |   998K|    35M|  5311   (1)| 00:01:04|
    |   1 |  INDEX FULL SCAN | PKSPOTRIPLES |   998K|    35M|  5311   (1)| 00:01:04|
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------Notice that the plan does not involve a SORT operation. This is because spoTriples is an Index-Organized Table on the primary key index of (s,p,o), which contains all of the columns in the table. This means the table is already sorted on s, which is the column in the ORDER BY clause. The optimizer is taking advantage of the fact that the table is already sorted, which it should.
    Now look at this plan:
      2  SELECT /*+ USE_MERGE(t1 t2) */ t1.s, t2.s
      3  FROM spoTriples t1, spoTriples t2
      4  WHERE t1.s = t2.s;
    |   0 | SELECT STATEMENT       |              |    11M|   297M|       | 13019 (6)| 00:02:37 |
    |   1 |  MERGE JOIN            |              |    11M|   297M|       | 13019 (6)| 00:02:37 |
    |   2 |   SORT JOIN            |              |   998K|    12M|    38M|  6389 (4)| 00:01:17 |
    |   3 |    INDEX FAST FULL SCAN| PKSPOTRIPLES |   998K|    12M|       |  1460 (3)| 00:00:18 |
    |*  4 |   SORT JOIN            |              |   998K|    12M|    38M|  6389 (4)| 00:01:17 |
    |   5 |    INDEX FAST FULL SCAN| PKSPOTRIPLES |   998K|    12M|       |  1460 (3)| 00:00:18 |
    Predicate Information (identified by operation id):
       4 - access("T1"."S"="T2"."S")
           filter("T1"."S"="T2"."S")I'm doing a self join on the column by which the table is sorted. I'm using a hint to force a merge join, but despite the data already being sorted, the optimizer insists on sorting each instance of spoTriples before doing the merge join. The sort should be unnecessary for the same reason that it is unnecessary in the case with the ORDER BY above.
    Is there anyway to make Oracle be aware of and take advantage of the fact that it doesn't have to sort this data before merge joining it?

  • Cisco power supply and APC UPS question

    Good afternoon, I am running a 4507 with the Power Supples PWR-C45-2800ACV
    Can I plug this power supply into this UPS unit?

    My guess is that 2800w power supply is looking for two legs of AC in to make the DC stable on the switch.   I've installed a lot of 45XXx over the years but I never have more than 100 ports of active POE on them as most buildings have lots of computers and printers and a few VOIP phones and access points.  
    Now, those power supplies are pretty fault tolerent and well built.  They can take (probably) swing voltage from 40-240V and 50-60Hz.    You can wire up the L6-30 into the TWLK cable and only have 20A of 120V on one leg from the output of your UPS.     You just have a single 30A hot, neutral and ground and a dead leg for hot into the power supply.   You use half the power supply.  
    The capacitors on the power supply will just have to absorb that and deal with it.   That's their job.  Short term batteries. 
    One thing you need to realize is that you don't have to have two full-capacity 2800w circuits for the switch.   The 2800 is a reference number and that's based on a lot of inneffiencies in the entire system.  
    You've got at max a 2800w load and either 1 or two power supplies will feed it.    Two power supplies will be slightly less efficient than one but you're not pulling 5600w.   
    If you could, answer the questions above on the number of POE devices you've got and we can work a solution to solve the power to the switch and to your nodes.  
    You've got a lot of expensive, quality gear and the best solution isn't always to double up and re-buy what you've got.  
    I am going to recommend a metered PDU so that you can watch the amperage as when you approach the limit of what your wires can haul, you need to pay attention to the national electric code.
    If you can PM me, do.

  • A few more Solaris questions

    I'm sure this isn't the best place to post this, but I currently have a file server running Solaris 11 with a raid-z2 pool and I'm building a new vmware server out of some parts I've managed to get some good deals on might I add.
    I'm building on a supermicro x8dt3-f board that has an LSI controller on board with a pair of xeon 5570's and 48gb ram. The processors and ram actually came from a sun blade that was tossed out for recycling, sadly the box had never been opened, but i got these for pennies on the dollar, so i'm happy
    I'd like to move the current Solaris file server into a VM on the new ESXi 5.1 host and passthrough the LSI controller.
    I've been reading, and reading and reading and i find the more i read, the more questions I have and the less clear some of the answers are getting.
    First, from what I gather, Solaris 11 has only been added to the supported guest list in ESXi with the recent esxi 5.1 version as I understand? So all should be fine here? Can someone confirm?
    second, i've read about issues with LSI controllers under solaris 11. Is this something that has been addressed in 11.1?
    Third, trying to find the best method to conver the physical system to virtual under ESXi
    The first thing I plan on doing is backing up my data from the pool, though it will be scattered across a few systems. Then I plan on exporting the pool to move the disks physically to the new controller in the VM. The question I have here, is will the share flags and permissions be retained when I import the pool? or do I have to redo all that?
    But then, what's the best method to move it to a VM? The one document I see come up the most is moving a physical solaris system into a zone on another system. Can it be transferred to the global zone? Could I do a new install in a VM, and move the existing install to the global zone, import my pool and call it a daY?
    Or do I dd the OS disk, convert the image and drop it into vmware, get the hardware working, and then import the pool?
    Or is there a better way? Has anyone got any online docs in mind that may help specifically with this migration? everything i'm finding is scattered, maybe i'm not looking for the right things but I could use some pointers if anyone has suggestions.
    I suppose I should note, i have it integrated with an Active directory, this is why i'm worried about permissions being retained when i import the pool
    I just want this to go as quickly and smoothly as possible, with as little headache as possible. it's my home setup, so realistically it takes the time it takes as long as things go smooth

    I know this may not be the answer you are looking for, but I think you are making it more difficult than it needs to be.
    One other option is to leave your Solaris Storage server on the bare metal of this new beast of a machine you are piecing together. Then, use VirtualBox 4.2.6 which is support quite well in Solaris to run whatever virtual machines you where intending ESXi to be used for.
    This way you have the fastest possible storage setup without the issues of hardware passthrough. And the fast storage now benefits the VMs running on it. Not to mention the other neat options now of running lzjb compression for the VMs. either using zvols for the VMs, or just virtualbox vdi files sitting on a compressed zfs filesystem.
    As far as the LSI 1068E controller goes, their website only shows drivers for Solaris 10. So unless Solaris 11 has the drivers built in, you may not be able to use that controller. Believe me I feel your pain in this one.. I have the d#$$!est time finding good SAS HBAs for Solaris 11.1 and the few I did find had questionable drivers. Areca 1320 cards seem to work well, as do Adaptec 64xx and 68xx raid cards. LSI has a new line that supposedly works with Solaris 11.
    My advice is to try a baremetal install of Solaris 11.1 on the new machine and see if you can recognize drives on the LSI controller, if not then use the 6 onboard SATA ports if that is enough for the drives. Otherwise purchase an Areca 1320 which is only like 230 bucks for the 8 port version.

  • More JTextPane Questions

    Hi Guys
    I posted this question on the Java Ranch forums yesterday evening, but I haven't received a response yet, so I figured that I'd try these forums as well. You can view the other thread here;
    We're trying to build a simple WYSIWYG HTML editor using a JTextPane. I've used Charles Bell's example, available here; as a reference. My biggest gripe with it at the moment is that bullets aren't working as I would expect them to. If I highlight text and click the "Bullet" button, I want a bullet to be placed immediately before the highlighted text, on the same line. If I try to do this, my code is creating bullets, but it moves the selected text one line down. I've gone through the Oracle tutorial on text components, but I couldn't find anything that helped me with this particular issue.
    Also, if I copy and paste text into my JTextPane, the pasted text always appears on a new line (a new paragraph tag in the actual HTML). Is there a way to prevent the JTextPane from creating new paragraphs?
    Lastly, I'm flabbergasted as to why my buttons actually work. I can't see anything that explicitly links my buttons to my HTMLEditorKit or my JTextPane. Short of a little voodoo man living under my keyboard, how on earth do my buttons/actions know that they should update the JTextPane?
    The code is as follows;
    package myhtmleditor;
    import java.awt.BorderLayout;
    import java.awt.FlowLayout;
    import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
    import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
    import javax.swing.Action;
    import javax.swing.JButton;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
    import javax.swing.JScrollPane;
    import javax.swing.JTextPane;
    import javax.swing.SwingUtilities;
    import javax.swing.text.StyledEditorKit;
    import javax.swing.text.html.HTML;
    import javax.swing.text.html.HTMLDocument;
    import javax.swing.text.html.HTMLEditorKit;
    public class Main {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                public void run() {
                    JFrame frame = new JFrame("My HTML Editor");
                    frame.setSize(500, 500);
                    frame.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
                    JPanel buttonsPanel = new JPanel(new FlowLayout(FlowLayout.LEFT));
                    HTMLDocument document = new HTMLDocument();
                    final JTextPane htmlEditorPane = new JTextPane(document);
                    Action bold = new StyledEditorKit.BoldAction();
                    Action italic = new StyledEditorKit.ItalicAction();
                    Action underline = new StyledEditorKit.UnderlineAction();
                    JButton boldButton = new JButton(bold);
                    JButton italicButton = new JButton(italic);
                    JButton underlineButton = new JButton(underline);
                    HTMLEditorKit.InsertHTMLTextAction bulletAction = new HTMLEditorKit.InsertHTMLTextAction("Bullet", "<ul><li> </li></ul>", HTML.Tag.BODY, HTML.Tag.UL);
                    JButton bulletButton = new JButton(bulletAction);
                    JButton printButton = new JButton("Print to Console");
                    printButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
                        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                    HTMLEditorKit editorKit = new HTMLEditorKit();
                    frame.add(buttonsPanel, BorderLayout.NORTH);
                    frame.add(new JScrollPane(htmlEditorPane), BorderLayout.CENTER);
    }Thank you for your input.

    See how the bullet action changes HTML (compare getText() result before and after the bullet applying. It seems you need more smart way of adding bullets.
    Answer some questions if user selects whole paragraph should the <p> tag be removed and replaced with <li>? If user selects just one word in the paragraph and pressed bullet should the whole paragraph be bulleted?
    When you copy something you clipboard contains something like this "<html><body> content</body></html>". Try to override read() method of your kit (or Reader) to skip the main tags.
    For components see ObjectView class source.
    In fact when HTMLDocument is created from String components classes are created and stored in attributes of Elements. Then during rendering ComponentView extension (ObjectView) creates components.

  • More XControl questions / issues

    XControl 1, X1, has two other XControls, X2 and X3, on its
    block diagram
    When I open a VI with X1 on it, the Init ability is called
    for X2 and X3 three times each.  X1’s
    Init ability is called one time.  (The
    other VIs you see pop up are called from X2 and X3 as a result of Init
    executing, so they illustrate the Init calls. 
    They close when Uninit is called, and you can see as much when you close
    the VI and project)
    When I close said VI, the Uninit ability is called for X1
    and called twice for X2 and X3.  This, of
    course, leaves one instance of X2 and X3 left open.  Consequently, references and VI’s I opened as
    a result of the Init call are left open (you notice the two subvi's still open). 
    Once I close the project, the Uninit abilities are called
    for X2 and X3, closing the remaining resources.
    There is a file in the folder called log.txt I write to in
    the init and Uninit abilities for each XControl.  If you open it after each step you can see
    what I’m talking about.
    Additional things: 
    After I close the VI, but not the project, X2 and X3 are of course
    locked.  When I right click “Unlock this
    library for Editing”, LabVIEW crashes with a .cpp error.
    My real project loads the XControls (and executes the Init ability) as soon as it opens for
    some reason, and makes it nearly impossible to edit them unless I close and open the
    XControls individually, due to the .cpp error above.
    Is it expected that an XControl an another XControl should be called more than once?
    Why don't they get unloaded when the main XControl is closed and unloaded?
    Why the .cpp error?

  • More clear question  for slideshow help - Kin?

    Hi Kin,
    You have been very helpful in getting me this far - I know
    this last detail would be a very easy thing for you to do.
    I tried to get it to work for the dssmTitle by adding another
    The mouseover function is fine the way it is. It's how it
    behaves during the slideshow that is a little wierd - it just sits
    on the first story. It would be great if it switched to each story
    like the small nav at the bottom highlights to each corresponding
    nav to its story during the slideshow.
    I hope this is more clear.

    Hi TS,
    So it sounds like you want to change the current row of
    dschapters and stop the slide show on mouesover, and then re-enable
    the slideshow on mouseout right?
    Try something like this:
    var gTimerID = 0;
    var gInterval = 3000;
    function StartSlideShow()
    gTimerID = setInterval(function(){
    dschapters.setCurrentRowNumber((dschapters.getCurrentRowNumber() +
    1) % dschapters.getRowCount()); }, gInterval);
    function StopSlideShow()
    if (gTimerID)
    gTimerID = 0;
    if (nt == "onPostLoad")
    <div id="nav" spry:detailregion="dschapters"
    spry:repeatchildren="dschapters" spry:choose="choose">
    <div spry:when="{ds_RowID} == {ds_CurrentRowID}"
    id="nav2" class="currentChapter" spry:setrow="dschapters"
    spry:hover="hoverRow"><img src="{thPhoto}"
    onmouseout="StartSlideShow();" /> </div>
    <div spry:default="default" id="nav2"
    spry:setrow="dschapters" spry:hover="hoverRow"><img
    src="{thPhoto}" onmouseover="StopSlideShow();
    onmouseout="StartSlideShow();" /></div>
    On a side note, if you are trying to bring your question to
    the top of the forum again, post a message in your original thread
    ... that is don't create a new thread each time ... that way the
    context of your questions is preserved for others to read. If you
    post new threads each time, folks have to search for your previous
    posts/threads to get context.

  • More font questions

    What I can't seem to find in any of these replies--I probably just haven't found the right one yet!--is whether the new OS X Tiger can use older mac fonts or any of the free mac fonts available on the internet...and that goes for all free mac downloads. I can't seem to get ANYTHING in a format that actually works with this OS!
    I have hundreds of great fonts on my older macs, but I'm guessing if they are not TTF (which most, of course, will not be) they won't transfer. Also, it seems that the vast majority of downloads come through as .sit files--not sure what that is, but they are not registering as fonts. Now what?

    Hi rosy,
    Welcome to the discussions and the AppleWorks forum.
    This is more an OS X question than an Appleworks one, and you may get a more definitive reply by pisting in the Tiger forum.
    ".sit" is a suffix that identifies a file compressed using Stuffit, the 'standard' compression application for Mac under OS 9 and earlier. To open these you need the free download of Stuffit Expander.
    If your older fonts are TrueType (which most of the scaleable ones will be) they should be useable in Tiger. Bit Map fonts (any that showed some sizes in black and others in outline in the Font menu on your older Mac) may not be useable in OS X.

  • More MOH Questions

    Hi Everyone
    I'm looking at the MOH options now and I have a question, I went to the MOH audio source and the MOH server configuration. And I see that each one has an option to allow multicasting, but in the server configuration they have base multi-cast IP and base mutli-cast port. I wanted to know is th IP and what would I put for the port.

    You have to put the valid multicast port numbers which include even numbers that range from 16384 to 32767.
    Here in your case the MoH server will be streaming a multicast audio source to on RTP port specified.
    Refer below link for MOH Configuration and more detail,

  • More Distortion Questions

    I posted about this before but now realize I may have misdiagnosed the problem.
    I have a DV quicktime file that play perfectly. When brought into FCE 3.5.1 however, there's one scene that becomes very distorted. Tom Wolsky originally suggested it was deinterlacing, but now that I've seen more examples of that I definitely don't think that is the issue.
    There's a scene where a person turns his face in front of the camera. As he does, these big splotches of distortion appear. If you ever look through an imperfect piece of glass, that would best describe it. It's not horizontal lines. Almost the way you'd see things bend a bit with a funhouse mirror.
    What could be causing this? The distortion only appears when the clip is brought into FCE. Then appears when I burn the exported movie onto a DVD via iDVD.
    Please help.

    Is this clip from the same source as the others?
    If it is, sounds really weird.
    At a wild guess, can you check to see that a filter has not been inadvertently added to the clip in question. Some filters can add that type of distortion effect.

    1.) Why is the reserved word String in parentheses?
    2.) What other reserved words could I use in its place?
    3.) By deleting it, error says it found Object but required String.
    In earlier code, I defined it as a String. What gives?

    the syntax (String) is called a CAST - it converts the 'type' of an object from one type to another.
    in this case it's converting from the type Object to type String - this is basic Object talk - read any beginning
    book on OO/Java and get a better understanding.
    one must cast the object returned from the enumeration to a more usefull type - but you may find
    that the code has run time errors - if the enumeration has other than Strings in it - for example
    one could put a Boolean object in the enumeration and casting to a String will give a class cast exception
    at run time.

    Hi Guys,
    1. Is it better to "close" a production order or "technically complete" it after the production is complete? Will it make a difference?
    2. What dates are more important for tracking in a production order? Basic Dates or Actual Dates?
    3. I am planning on implementing cost center accounting to capture costs from the machine and labor times given in the routing. Is there any easier method?
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Will give points.

    Dear Rao,
    1. Is it better to "close" a production order or "technically complete" it after the production is complete? Will it make a difference?
    It is not the question of which is better, they serve different purposes.
    TECO - The production order will not be relevant for MRP. Settlement can be done.
                Confimations and GR/GI of production order still possible.
    CLSD - The production order will not be relevant for MRP. If goods movements have taken place and / or activity booking done, then "closing" is <b>not possible</b> without settlement done. Confimations and GR/GI of production order <b>not possible</b>..
    2. What dates are more important for tracking in a production order? Basic Dates or Actual Dates?
    Both of the dates are important and have their roles to play.
    Basic dates are important for scheduling.
    Actual dates are important for leadtime scheduling and consequently capacity planning.
    3. I am planning on implementing cost center accounting to capture costs from the machine and labor times given in the routing. Is there any easier method?
    Your plan is nice and cool.
    Hope this will help you, please confirm.
