On blogs, I see references to Jumbo Frames, Dual-Core CPU, more Ram, etc but not on the Drobo website itself. Can we get more information of the internal components of the Drobo FS to confirm what the blogs say it has?
So it has Jumbo Frames support? I guess that’s configured from the Drobo Dashboard?
Does the Drobo FS have a difference CPU from the Drobo S? Is the CPU and Ram shared by both the BeyondRaid component and the ‘DroboShare/DroboApp’ components and is there a danger of a high load on one causing slowness in the other? I certainly don’t want a buggy or needy App to cause the BeyondRaid to stop working.
Does email alerts still work when the computer running the dashboard is off?
Since there doesn’t seem to be a way for a UPS to notify the drobo of any power issues, what would happen if power just cut out? And can we simply use the power switch to safely shutdown the Drobo FS or do we have to use the Drobo Dashboard to do that? I’m thinking a short flip of the switch would signal the FS to gracefully shutdown while a long flip would be a forceful shutdown.
