Megabit ? Megabyte Majority tends to say: #################################### MB Megabyte Mb Megabit Mbps Megabit per seconds Netzwerk 100Mb/sec <=> 12.5 MB/sec (=12.5 Megabytes/sec) #################################### Bandwith measure in bits per second ------------------------------------ 1Kb/s = 1000 bits per second 1Mb/s = 1'000'000 bits per second Space measured in bytes and multipliers are power of 2 ------------------------------------------------------ 1KB = 1'024 bytes 1MB = 1'048'576 bytes 1GB = 1'073,741,824 bytes #################################### always double check: df -m will say MB and actually means Mbytes fx> label/show/part states Megabytes diskperf MB = Megabytes ftp says Kbytes/s _____________________________________________________________________________ Typical speeds: ================ source: ~nick/info/net/speed Network: --------- Modem: 33600bps 33 kbit/s 10 MBytes/40Min Ethernet 10BaseT 10 Mbit/s 1.25 MByte/s 12.5 MByte/10s 75 MByte/Min Fastethernet: 100BaseT 100Mbit/s 12.5 MByte/s 125 MByte/10s 750 MByte/Min Gigabit Ethernet: 1000Mbit/s 125 MByte/s 1250 MByte/10s 7'500 MByte/Min ATM OC3 155Mbit/s ATM OC12 622Mbit/s Storage: -------- Fibre Channel 100 MBytes/s (~1Gb/sec) 200 MBytes/s (~2Gb/sec) Other: ------ FireWire IEEE1394 400Mbit/s 50 MBytes/s 800Mbit/s 1600Mbit/s 3200Mbit/s PCI bus bandwidth: ------------------ 33MHz, 64bit wide, 266 MB/s Theoretical bandwidth; 66MHz 532 MB/s Theoretical bandwidth; Unfortunately, you're both incorrect. Due to the implementation of the Origin's XIO-to-PCI Bridge/Xbridge chip(s), the (X)Bridge will "disconnect" DMA on every cache-line boundary, which casues a certain fraction of the PCI bandwidth to be unavailable. On the O2000 this leads to the *theoretical* maximum on a 64-bit/33-Mhz bus being ~213 MB/s (not 266), and we've actually seen ~211 MB/s in certain test cases. The same applies to Xbridge, so the *theoretical* maximum through Xbridge to/from a 64-bit/66-Mhz bus is ~426 MB/s (roughly), though I don't know what the max we've actually ever seen is. (A vague memory says ~380 MB/s with some SCSI controllers, but don't quote me.) _____________________________________________________________________________ SCSI Cable Length ----------------- SCSI-1 SE 6m HVD 25m SCSI-2 SE 3m HVD 25m SCSI-3 SE 1.5m HVD 25m ( SCSI-3 can be used up to 3m with max 4 devices including the controller (HA)) See: _____________________________________________________________________________ Address Allocation for Private Internets The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved the following three blocks of the IP address space for private internets: - (10/8 prefix) - (172.16/12 prefix) - (192.168/16 prefix) _____________________________________________________________________________ System Configuration: ====================== Hardware: ---------- hinv hardware inventory command hinv -vv detailliert mit revision level hinv -mv Revision of Octane Powersupply nvram,sgikopt get or set non-volatile RAM variables diskpatch -v Get info about the disk (very useful) help_mem get exact memoryinfo (only at PROM) swap -ln Swap info in MegaBytes swap -s /usr/gfx/gfxinfo display graphics subsystems informationstopgfx glxinfo display info about a GLX extension and OpenGL renderer setmon set the current and default video output format /usr/gfx/setmon 60Hz also check for ~ /usr/gfx/ucode/<XXX>/vof /usr/gfx/setmon 1024x768_75 /usr/gfx/setmon stereo To do setmon from remote (via network): setenv DISPLAY :0.0 ; /usr/gfx/setmon 72Hz stopgfx;gfxinit;startgfx; gfxinit will not work if stopgfx was not used just before Octane dual head with new monitor GDM5411: setmon -p0 72Hz;setmon -p1 72Hz xsetmon graphical setmon xscreen replaces setmon (GUI) actually a link to xsetmon /usr/bin/X11/xsetmon O2: /usr/sbin/flatpanel ircombine (for Onyx) mt status pre6.4: scsicontrol >=6.4 : scsiha -p # scsicontrol probe and control scsi devices devices for the CDROM can be found in /dev/scsi when issuing scsicontrol no CD must be in CD driver if there is a CD mounted then the error message appears: sc0d4l0: cannot open: Resource busy Ex: scsicontrol -i sc0d4l0 (l0 stands for lun 0) sc0d4l0: CD-ROM TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-3501TA0095 ANSI vers 2, ISO ver: 0, ECMA ver: 0; Response format type 1, but has SCSI-2 capability bits set supports: reladdr. inquiry format is SCSI 1 Device is not ready to get the firmware of the CDROM drive with a mounted CD use: fx scsiadminswap -p -b # -d # diskpatch -v Info about all disks sc0d3l0: Disk SGI IBM 0662 S12 1S11 Serial: 00222769 sc0d1l0: Disk SGI QUANTUM XP34300 S89C Serial: MP621520 devnm name identifies the special file associated with the mounted filesystem /dev/MAKEDEV create device special files !!! first do "cd /dev " then "./MAKEDEV ......"

If you enter it on a different keyboard that's assigned to another display, it interrupts only the child xdm process that's assigned to that X display. I also discovered that if I logout of X display 0's desktop, it also terminates the other X display. I fixed this by changing the DisplayManager._n.terminateServer: statement to False in the /var/X11/xdm/xdm-config file. _____________________________________________________________________________ Put faces on the login desktop: ----- man clogin: $HOME/.icons/login.icon /usr/local/lib/faces/$USER /usr/lib/faces/$USER chkconfig noiconlogin -> NO icons are displayed instead /usr/Cadmin/images/cloginlogo.rgb is displayed _____________________________________________________________________________ /etc/default/login: ------------------ CONSOLE=/dev/console --> root connection is posible from console AND from xterm connections CONSOLE=any_thing --> Nobody can connect as root directly.

Uninstall and then reinstall all of the print.sw stuff II. Enable debug in the interface script, look in the directory /var/spool/lp/interface, you should see files that are named the same as any printers you created. 1. Edit the file in question. At the top of the file you will see a line that looks like this: #!/bin/sh Change it to look like this: #!/bin/sh -x Save the change and exit the editor. 2. Try to print something short and simple: cat <filename> |lp -d<printer_name> cat /etc/hosts |lp -dsgiprinter 3. The debug output should end up in the /var/spool/lp/log file and look like the script commands executed. 4. Print with the debug option 'verbose' lptest >/tmp/testfile lp -d<printer_name> -o"verbose" /tmp/testfile III. Make sure you have the following subsystems install. 1. do a versions |grep impr_ output should show - impr_print.sw.laserjetPS,,, impr_base.sw.impr, impr_base.books.Impr_UG, plus any others you may want to include. 2. Check out the Impressario release note for more info (grelnotes impressario). To test connection for a IP addressable printer check out the following: IV. One test to try is telnet to the IP address and port number of the printer. Exp: telnet 9100 ( or 515 -std bsd port) where is the IP address and 9100/515 is the port number. If that succeeds w/o error messages. You should see something like: $ telnet 9100 -OR- telnet 515 Trying Connected to Escape character is '^]'. # this indicates a connection ^] # type 'Ctrl ]' to break the connection telnet> quit # then 'quit' to exit Connection closed. Check the printer documentation to make sure which network port the printer is listening on. If necessary either change the configuration inside the printer to conform, or modify /var/spool/lp/interface/<prtrname> to use a port that matches the printer as in the following excerpt from one of the networkable model files: --- # Network port to write to. 9100 is HP Jetdirect card and EX. # The JetDirect 3Plus EX uses 9100, 9101, and 9102 for ports 1, 2, and 3. # Many other vendors use same port as HP. OUTSOCK is port to write to. # INSOCK is socket to read for status (for future use -- status # now read from same socket address as specified a by OUTSOCK). OUTSOCK=9100 INSOCK=9100 The good general test is to take a file that should be printable by the printer, ie: /usr/lib/print/data/ for a postscript printer and then: "cat /usr/lib/print/ > /dev/plp". This will bypass all the printing spooling stuff and blow the file right out the parallel port to the postscript printer, and if the basic hardware is ok it should print it. _____________________________________________________________________________ /usr/impressario/gifts/models/lpr2lp: #!/bin/sh # # quick script to redirect the output of lpr to the default printer # under the local lp spooler. # # to change the destination of the lp, add -d<printername> to the end # # use this script with a printcap entry of the form: # # fake|fake printer:\ # :lp=/dev/null:of=/etc/lpr2lp: # cat - | lp _____________________________________________________________________________ Add page break to a ASCII file in vi: type in insert mode: hold down <ctrl> and press <V> then <L> vi will then show ^L (as one character) _____________________________________________________________________________ Convert Hexadezimal to Binary ----------------------------- lion 13% bc ibase is Input Base obase=2 obase is Output Base ibase=16 F <ENTER> 1111 3E <ENTER> 111110 !!

ESC ("escape") expands to "\033". CSI expands to either "ESC [" (escape left-bracket) or to "\233". DCS ("device control string") expands to either "ESC P" (escape capital-P) or to "\220". ST ("string terminator") expands to either "ESC \\" (escape backslash) or to "\234". So the CSI is documented to be "ESC [". To resize the window: CSI Pv / y xwsh command. The first parameter to this escape sequence is the particular command described in the table that follows. Each command has different numbers of arguments which are described below. 203 Set the window size by row and column. This sequence takes three parameters. The first is 203. The second parameter is the number of rows to use. The third parameter is the number of columns to use. So to resize to 60 columns and 30 rows, you'd do echo '^[[203;30;60/y' Here '^[' is the rendition of the ASCII escape character. It depends a bit on your shell how you can access it. Control-V ESC is a good bet with many shells. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- again echo combined with different *-terms Perhaps this little trick to set the title/decoration of wsh will help illuminate the man page. $ cat title1 case $TERM in xterm|vt*) /bin/echo "\033]0;$1\007" ;; hpterm) /bin/echo "\033&f0k${#1}D${1}\033&f-1k${#1}D${1}\c" ;; iris*) /bin/echo '\033P1.y'$1'\033\\\033P3.y'$1'\033\\\c' ;; esac _____________________________________________________________________________ echo magics of echo ===================== change the title in a xwsh: echo "\033P1.yyourTitle\033\\" change the iconname of the a window: echo -n "\033P3.yhallo\033\\" script from my .cshrc which changes the title of my xwsh to what ever directory I'm in: ======== if ($?TERM) then if ($TERM == iris-ansi || $TERM == iris-ansi-net) then alias update '/bin/echo "\033P1.y`hostname`:${cwd}\033\\\c\033P3.y`hostname`\033\\\c"' alias pupdate '/bin/echo "\033P1.y"\!*"\033\\\c\033P3.y"\!*"\033\\\c"' alias pushd 'pushd \!*; update' alias popd 'popd \!*; update' alias rlogin 'pupdate \!*; /usr/bsd/rlogin \!*; update' alias rl 'pupdate [email protected]\!*; /usr/bsd/rlogin \!* -l guest; update' alias cd 'cd \!*; update' endif endif -------------------------------- Here's another script that is a bit more general; supports both xterm and winterm #!/bin/sh # usage: title "text here in $1" ## for xterms: #ESC ] Ps ; Pt BEL # #Ps = 0 -> Change Icon Name and Window Title to Pt #Ps = 1 -> Change Icon Name to Pt #Ps = 2 -> Change Window Title to Pt #Ps = 46 -> Change Log File to Pt (now normally disabled by a # compile-time option although not the case in the past; it's # a security hole that allows people to overwrite arbitrary # files accessible to the person running xterm) #Ps = 50 -> Set Font to Pt # ## echo "\033]2;This is the new title\007" ## \033 = ^[ ## \007 = ^G case $TERM in xterm|xterms) echo -n "\033]2;$1\007" ;; winterm|iris-ansi|iris-ansi-net) echo -n "\033P1.y$1\033\\" ;; *) echo "unknown term type $TERM" ;; esac ------------------------------------ Below is my little perlscript that runs after every cd command I issue: I call it 'wintitle' and keep it in my ~/bin directory Mind the escape characters..

This way when people send you email and you are out of town they will get a message to that effect. 1. In your home directory create a file .vacation.msg that has your vac. mesg. with: From: ... Subject: I'm on vacation Precedence: bulk 2. In your home directory create a file .forward containing the following line: \username, "|/usr/sbin/vacation username" Note: replace username in the above example with your login name 3. To activate this message, in a shell window type: vacation -i -r 1 (this is the number "1" for 1 message per day) 4.To deactivate, when you return, move .forward to another location to save it mv .forward 5. To reactivate (next trip) edit .vacation.msg and move the .forward file back mv .forward 6. To test, send yourself an email and see if the vacation program replies correctly 7. For more information, read the man page on vacation How to add logging for certain mail aliases -------------------------------------------- add the alias in /etc/aliases (/etc/aliases.yp) # grep "^support^ /etc/aliases.yp support:michi, "|/usr/local/bin/savesupport" # cat /usr/local/bin/savesupport #!/bin/csh -f cat >> /usr/local/savemail/support exit # ls -l /usr/local/savemail/support -rw-r--r-- 1 guest guest ..... # should belong to guest # under 6.2 it did not work otherwise How to redirect Mail to null ? ------------------------------ in /etc/aliases (or /etc/aliases.yp for NIS) keak: /dev/null dont forget to issue 'newaliases' afterwards !!
