@h3artbl33d I use Proxmox at home, and also have some colocation space at a local datacenter (also with Proxmox). But I also have bare metal machines running OpenBSD, one of them being my router :)
The author of Litestream is going to start releasing binaries for OpenBSD! See GitHub issue here: https://github.com/benbjohnson/litestream/issues/150#issuecomment-848375538
If anyone wants to test it, these are already available on the alpha release as seen on the link above. 😀
@jcarnat did you hear about the issue with httpd breaking nextcloud due to empty body responses? i think it might be fixed on -current
Just set up unbound-adblock, an ad/malware/etc DNS blocker using a shell script. https://geoghegan.ca/unbound-adblock.html
@bcallah Thanks for the talk, that was really interesting and lots of good information. I appreciate the work you do in growing the BSD community and being a great steward for the BSDs!
The OpenBSD 6.9 artwork was traditionally created by Joy San. You can find more of their work here https://cargocollective.com/joysan
@jcarnat it was 0C here this morning (central US), but a couple of weeks ago it was 25C! Just a tease, I guess...
@solene This is one of the reasons I am not a huge fan of private organizations (such as Netgate) trying to "contribute" to open source projects. Looks like they had different incentives/priorities (release Wireguard on pfSense fast) than the rest of the community (stable, secure wireguard implementation).
@22decembre I meant to respond sooner, but... There are a lot of great options for pfSense (or a BSD firewall). If you are willing to spend a bit more ($500-$800 USD) you can get Supermicro 1U half-depth servers that come with multiple NICs and some even have SFP ports. On the "lower end" you could look into Protectli which I believe are rebranded Qotom mini PCs. The Protectlis are more expensive but have support from the vendor. The Qotoms can be ordered from China or other vendors...
@22decembre The APUs are awesome little machines, I definitely wanted to use it as a router for gigabit FTTH, but yes, at the moment it's not a good candidate. For everything else I think they are awesome.
@jcarnat @22decembre Thanks for sharing that test data! When I couldn't route ~940mbps through OpenBSD 6.7 last time I tested my APU4D4, I decided to give it a try with FreeBSD (pfsense) and the hardware also wasn't enough. If I remember correctly, I could get ~800mbps consistently, which is awesome already (with no other load going on).
I run a homelab with Proxmox, Debian and OpenBSD :)
I also have a bit of datacenter colo space where I run AS394414.
