  1. I am interested to know how the aggregation works in osx. I would like to link 4 ports together so I can get +200MByte/sec transfers on single afp file transfers, IE edit uncompressed HD video. Anyone got a clue?

    have a look at bitjazz codec, lossless 4:2:2 codec you\ll need less bandvidth for that than the apple codec! Plus its much better at handling yuv->rgb conversion.

    OpenGL too slow for FCP?

    Yeah my drives are fast enough. As I stated in my question it plays fine in quicktime player... i got around 200MB/sec sustained data rate.

    OpenGL too slow for FCP?

    After effects is rosetta... That is what I am talking about, I know FCP is UB. And its not a decoding setting in quicktime I think. It could be FCP doing some trying some "realtime" conversion... but this problem of framedropping is there both when playing the clip and putting it in a sequence that is HD uncompressed. Weird...
  5. Hi! I have some trouble playing uncompressed HD in fcp when zoomed 100% or in full screen. It works perfect in Quicktime player, what gives?. Also performance in after effects using OpenGL acceleration "always on" is way slower than on PC(bootcamp)... It might be because of rosetta but OpenGL shouldnt be affected right? Is there any tweaking softwares for nvidia on osx? Or tweaked drivers? I come from PC land... so I need some tweky stuff! I Have a Macpro with bogstandard 7300GT btw ... lude

    Ok cool! I´ll dig into these things... one final question Is there any potential problem from the Intel OSX side of things? You speak only of the server and the servers NICcards... what card(or cards?) would you use in a MACPRO running OSX connected to this server you are setting up? Lude

    2: Let me rephrase that... what NIC card does the client use to speak with the server? Small tree is this BTW www.small-tree.com/products/GB-cards/PEG4.htm Do you have any suggestions on a cheapish switch with few ports that has all the jumboframe stuff I need? Again... Thanks a MILLION for your help.

    Wow that sounds great, as I am new to this I have some questions. Are you running Linux on the server? Are you connected to the server with multiport (smalltree??) ethernet from macpro? What software does the clients need for iscsi(and what about blazeFS and AoE?) Do I need a switch or can i use twistedpair and connect straight to the server via iscsi for multiport and use a hub/switch for single gigabit smb(or similar protocol)? I am thinking to buy a cheap case with 16x sata2 hotswap and pop in a motherboard with xeon and a multiportNIC( or is it as good with several NICs?) and a raidcontroller. But that Intel one shure looks sweet! What does this config cost? Please break it down if you want. Thanks a mil in advance! Lude

    Nice one... Im looking in on that. Do you have any experience in building multiport gigabit jumboframe stuff?

    HD VIDEO NAS

    Howdy! This being my first post here I am not sure this is the right place for it, so if it´s not please move it to the right place. Ok I want to build a NAS on Linux that both OSX, XP and Linux can talk to. It needs at least 2Gbs. I am thinking maybe AoE on multiport gigabit. I will only have 2-3 machines connected to this shared storage and only one of them needs superfast access, FCP on osx reading and writing uncompressed HD. So If I then mount the HFS+ partitioned RAID in linux too and share that over normal gigabit to the two other(XP, Linux, osx...) machines I would have a working solution? I have no Idea if that works though... All ideas is very appreciated! I am completely new on this and I should probably just buy a very expensive system somewhere, but guess what? I cant afford it.
