Hey @probono@fosstodon.org,
haven’t seen you for a while and was wondering if is still a thing?! I also enjoyed the efforts you put into this. Creating a really nice new UI for was somehow something special but the last changes are already a few month (almost a year) old.

I’m not sure if this reaches you, because also the postings on social medias stopped. However, maybe someone has some more information - and if you are feeding this I just want to say thank you for the time and efforts you put all the time into this project and I also hope you’re doing well so far (because we haven’t seen you for a while anymore).

Sometimes things get too much or our focus simply changes - it’s ok! Just hope you’re good so far!

@FiLiS The timezone picker data comes from /usr/share/zoneinfo/zone1970.tab, obtained from the tz database with a mirror at github.com/eggert/tz/blob/main

It says "the table is sorted
first by country code, then (if possible) by an order within the
country that (1) makes some geographical sense, and (2) puts the
most populous timezones first, where that does not contradict (1)."

And it looks like Büsingen uses the Europe/Zurich tz file, which sorts first by country code.

Proxmox vs FreeBSD: Which Virtualization Host Performs Better?

@stefano This is interesting. Thanks.

The file creation speed is very significant - going from 407 MB/s on proxmox to 1467 MB/s on freebsd.

Do you know why there is such a large difference?

...

Stefano Marinelli »
@stefano@mastodon.bsd.cafe

@moozer Considering that the Proxmox host on ZFS goes at 968.64 MB/s and FreeBSD host on ZFS flies at 1625.67 MB/s, I'd dare to say that ZFS seems to be much more optimized on FreeBSD than on the Proxmox PVE Kernel.

...

cuddle »
@cuddle@mastodon.bsd.cafe

@stefano ZFS on Linux still not mature yet, and FreeBSD support ZFS out of the box, to the kernel level.

If ZFS had close integration with the Linux kernel, it would have much or less similar I/O performance, both are POSIX complaint systems after all.

...

Sourcerer »
@sourcerer@mastodon.bsd.cafe

@cuddle @stefano ZFS is beast in general.

When i tinkered with poudriere, i had big difference in compilation time ZFS vs UFS. Rust is known for long compilation, and i don't remember by how much, but compilation was definitely faster with ZFS.

FreeBSD have better support for ZFS, no doubt.

...

cuddle »
@cuddle@mastodon.bsd.cafe

@sourcerer @stefano Yeah, that's true.

ZFS do a lot of memory caching to avoid read calls, and the structure is generally better than UFS2 so the performance is. It's also that when you use FreeBSD the only filesystem you'd most likely use is ZFS. UFS2 doesn't natively support journaling, I think you'd need geom journal module as the back.

Netflix seems also uses UFS2, but mainly because ZFS structure can't allow sendfile call as Netflix wants. So that's where UFS2 is in production.

FreeBSD definitely has better support for ZFS. I'm wondering about others too, such as OpenIndiana...

Paul Wilde »
@paul@notnull.space

@stefano Thanks,

I've recently moved some of my VMs from KVM to bhyve and have noticed a significant performance improvement.
Most noticeably with Nextcloud (Debian guest) where it feels really quick and snappy now where it felt clunky before. I guess this may be due to improved IO performance similar to what you have tested.

...

Benjamin Kwiecień 🇵🇸 »
@ben@kwiecien.us

@paul @stefano bhyve sounds great

...

Paul Wilde »
@paul@notnull.space

@ben to be fair it's probably ZFS doing a lot of the heavy lifting here, but @stefano 's testing has shown that even on ZFS on proxmox (KVM) the performance still isn't quite as good as ZFS on FreeBSD (bhyve) - which is likely due to the ZFS modules in FreeBSD being native over additional kernel modules in proxmox (or any other Linux distro that can use it)

bhyve is definitely worth looking into if you use VMs though, for sure!

...

Phil Dennis-Jordan 😷 »
@pmdj@mstdn.social

@paul @ben @stefano I don’t know, I could equally imagine the Qemu I/O paths not being ideal. Qemu is a beast of a code base, which even after years of effort hasn’t managed to get close to eliminating the big Qemu lock (BQL) for example; bhyve is tiny in comparison.

Stefano Marinelli »
@stefano@mastodon.bsd.cafe

@paul Exactly the reason why I decided to perform those tests. Moving VMs to bhyve led people to think I've upgraded the hardware as they're "quicker". Glad to know you're having the same experience!

BitPirate »
@bitpirate@mas.to

@stefano Rule of thumb: if ZFS consistently beats ext4 in a basic filesystem benchmark on Linux, there's either something wrong with your setup or your benchmark is flawed.

I'd switch from sysbench to fio for I/O related tests.

...

Stefano Marinelli »

@bitpirate I'll perform some more tests with fio when possible.

oxy »
@oxyhyxo@mastodon.bsd.cafe

@stefano nice.

The results are interesting - I wouldnt have expected such a wide margin in some of the results.

That said, Ive never used Proxmox and it has been a while since I’ve used KVM at all (and at the time I was using Fedora/Centos on XFS - ext4 has eaten enough data for me to never ever want to use it again)

Sourcerer »
@sourcerer@mastodon.bsd.cafe

@stefano Great work!

Numbers are just numbers, what really counts is " they contacted me a few days later to inquire if we had new hardware because they noticed better performance. "

i do not reject analysis, but in a lot of cases sometimes we need to trust our senses and real life.

Just opinion, i'm really happy with article because i feel i can trust my intuition when it comes to choices.

I aim for learning bhyve.

I'm glad to announce the release of version 2.54 of , the simple, minimalistic instance server written in C. This release includes very valuable work by fellow developer louis77, as well as other bugfixes and improvements:

Markdown-style links are now supported.

The alt text in attachments that have one is also shown in a dropdown just below it (useful for environments where mouseover is not available, i.e. for phones and tablets).

Instance-wide notifications has been implemented (contributed by louis77). A small tweak to the default CSS was made to suit this change; please consider updating your style.css (see doc/style.css as an example).

The avatar and/or the header images can now be deleted (contributed by louis77).

Code cleaning: HTTP status codes use names instead of hardcoded integers (contributed by louis77).

Mastodon API: fixed login problems with the official Mastodon API, IceCube and Toot! on iOS, some fixes for Mona and Tokodon apps, user credentials can now be edited from apps (all contributed by louis77), fixed crash on unset content-type header.

The webfinger content-type response header is now RFC-compliant (contributed by steve-bate).

Improved support for the HTTP OPTIONS method, allowing sites like https://mastodonlistmanager.org to work.

Fixed non-working content warnings in the public instance timeline.

@AnachronistJohn @gyptazy @netbsd while I'd love to I wouldn't know where to start. Guess first thing would be to setup a NetBSD build environment and work from upstream uboot to get a functional boot loader and partition layout?

@al1r4d@pegelinux.top I'd use UFS instead of ZFS unless you really have a reason for using ZFS (like snapshotting or send/receive functions). Next to it, for additional security you may set the following in the sysctl.conf:

security.bsd.see_other_uids=0
security.bsd.see_other_gids=0
security.bsd.see_jail_proc=0
security.bsd.unprivileged_read_msgbuf=0
security.bsd.unprivileged_proc_debug=0
kern.randompid=1

Beside this, running services in jails and keeping software up to update. All of this is already a pretty good way. You may also want to check pf (firewall) since your system is probably directly reachable from the internet. So, scrubbing the traffic and firewalling may also be an improvement.

Friends of and the , some of the presentations at , hosted by @gyptazy are noteworthy and many of you who couldn't attend might be interested in watching them.

We have therefore decided to create a channel for BSD Cafe (currently on YouTube, but I have other ideas more aligned with the OpenSource spirit of the Fediverse) where the most requested and interesting talks will be published.

The first video is the presentation of Freedive, a mobile-first web interface to run FreeBSD as a personal/public server. Developed and presented by Harshad - @harshad - it allows you to manage FreeBSD server or jail services directly from a mobile device—a dream come true for all of us who often find ourselves typing commands on the tiny keyboards of today's smartphones.

I highly recommend everyone to watch Harshad's presentation here: youtu.be/YhKQsPVM8sQ

In the coming days, I will also publish my presentation on the basic infrastructure of BSD Cafe and the management of its backups.

Stay tuned!

I’m still using HE for some corner cases but beside this, I use cheap small VPS to get static v4 and v6 to my home. This also comes with additional benefits:
- you can move your physician instance to everywhere (you connect from it to the vps)
