PeekaBoo Why Hello USB

Hmm well hello there... what do we have here... I'm thinking usb hub and a external drive for some squid cache.

On an unrelated note: Holy Frick these things run hot.

I missed my calling as a hand model.

Re: PeekaBoo Why Hello USB

I had been looking at some early screen shots of the interface and noticed that they were originally going to include it. Look to the right of the console port in this screen shot.
Yes the early prototypes had an hub & external USB, but were cost reduced from the "Lite" model. The higher end models do have an external USB. And the graphic in the UI has been corrected in the next release.

Don't fret over it. We all miss some sort of calling in life.

I was thinking of securing a few to my AF24's to melt ice buildup. Maybe I should wait for an outdoor version Man Happy

Why using external drive ? which has many speed barrier
Why not using optional Internal SSD which is much faster

Because most of the system loads into ram anyway?

Re: PeekaBoo Why Hello USB

Optional SSD? There is no ssd let alone a sata buss to connect one to.
We generally use squid caching to handle large software updates and the like. Currently we have a 200gb cache that sees about an 6-8% hit rate. Not a great rate but for the cost it's worth it in my mind.

The SSD drive would probably cost more than the router. ;-)

Why doesn't Ubiquiti start making SSD's at disruptive pricing?

Maybe in 2-3 years the price will not too much different compared to harddisk drive

and if the router can be used as good cache. I think it is good reason not to buy/ use separate cache

The webproxy traffic doesn't get hardware offloaded since the tcp session is terminated on the router, has to go to a userspace process and generates are new tcp session. There have been some discussions of making a higher end model with disk (or at least sata connector).

It's not a good cache. You have media caching network services and browser cache, plus everything these days is dynamically generated content. The most effective caching systems cost thousands of dollars, and still only cache a fraction of traffic... Not to mention a mips system isn't well designed for a task like that.
I know what you want man, but you're trying to use a hammer on a screw here. Not the right tool.
