Barracuda Green ST2000DL003


Reformatted a bit to fit on page.

I have 6 of these (2TB) in each NAS Raid5 setup plus motherboard, AMD cpus, RAM etc.
This page is for researching a replacement PSU.

2.8.1 Power consumption
Power requirements for the drives are listed in Table 2 on page 15. Typical power measurements are based on an average of drives tested, under nominal conditions, using 5.0V and 12.0V input voltage at 25°C ambient temperature.

• Spinup power Spinup power is measured from the time of power-on to the time that the drive spindle reaches operating speed.

Pi GPPS Clocks

Use Chris’ PPS kernel (until I have time or am compelled to compile my own).

Compile ntp 4.2.6p5 as follows (from aquarat):
But first: apt-get install libcap-dev

./configure --enable-ATOM --enable-NMEA --enable-linuxcaps; make; make install

Disable TTY on /dev/AMA0 in /boot/cmdline.txt
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait

Set baud rate in /boot/config.txt

Disable GPU sdram pause
# Disable GPU sdram mem pause

Comment out getty in /etc/inittab:

#Spawn a getty on Raspberry Pi serial line
#T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyAMA0 115200 vt100

Add pps-gpio to /etc/modules

FreeNAS Debian UPS Specs

Initially the UPS was being monitored by a FreeNAS installation, this was changed due to performance issues unrelated to the UPS monitoring software. Details on the migration are still being compiled, meanwhile, read this.

How come I feel there was a lot of time wasted?!

Here are the readings from the UPS. I am disappointed that it is not reporting battery voltage, but at least I am getting % charged.
