Free to cheap(ish) shared storage Hi Guys, Sorry it's taken me a whole to post, enjoyed the user group, just wish there had been more time to chat to people at the break/end - maybe next time! My email address is in my profile I'm always happy to offer advice and share experiences if anyone wants to contact me. In the mean time here's a quick bit on some free, cheap, and not-so-cheap-but-still-not-expensive SAN options. Free: iSCSI Enterprise Target. Make sure you use version 0.4.15 or newer, it has VMware specific fixes relating to reserve/release, if you use an earlier version you will need to apply a 3rd party patch to your ESX host. You can find a guide on setting up IET here, it talks about doing it in a workstation 6 VM, but the proceedure is pretty much identical for a physical server. Cheap(ish): I use SANmelody as the storage for a production machine and have been very happy with it so far. Cheers,

Password Safe - Quickstart Guide Quickstart Guide Steve McPherson has created this amusing clip highlighting the cooler features of PasswordSafe (Thanks, Steve!) has written a nice introductory guide showing how to get started with PasswordSafe. Here's a short video demonstrating PasswordSafe's menus and features, courtesy of FindMySoft: [The following short guide is taken from Password Safe's online help] Creating and Opening a Safe Password Safe allows users to store all passwords in a single "safe" (password database), or to create multiple databases for different purposes (e.g., one for work, one for personal use). If you are using Password Safe for the first time, press the New Database button. Create a New Database There are two ways that a new database can be created. Note: By default, Password Safe will show the database last used, and displays a combination prompt for it. Using Stored Passwords Password Safe provides several mechanisms for using stored names and passwords.

Tim Minchin Performance impact when using VMware snapshots It is certainly not unheared of – “When I delete a snapshot from a VM, the thing totally freezes!“. The strange thing is, some customers have these issues, others don’t (or are not aware of it). Test Setup So how do we test performance impact on storage while ruling out external factors? Windows 2003-R2-SP2 VM (32 bit);Single vCPU;2048 MB memory;5 Gbyte boot drive as an independent disk on a SAN LUN;VM configuration and 4 GByte performance-measurement-disk on local storage (10K disks RAID1);IOmeter (version 2006.07.27) installed;Configure perfmon to measure both reads and writes per second from PhysicalDisk with a 20 second interval;Build these VMs on both an ESX3.5 and vSphere server to see any differences. Note that the VM configs were also placed on local storage. IOmeter was setup for a total of two tests. Table 1: IOmeter setup How VMware snapshotting works VMware has chosen to do its snapshotting exactly opposite to the way most SAN vendors perform snapshots. Conclusion

About Dynamic-Link Libraries Dynamic linking allows a module to include only the information needed to locate an exported DLL function at load time or run time. Dynamic linking differs from the more familiar static linking, in which the linker copies a library function's code into each module that calls it. Types of Dynamic Linking There are two methods for calling a function in a DLL: DLLs and Memory Management Every process that loads the DLL maps it into its virtual address space. The system maintains a per-process reference count for each DLL. Like any other function, an exported DLL function runs in the context of the thread that calls it. The threads of the process that called the DLL can use handles opened by a DLL function. For more information about DLLs, see the following topics:
