Creating zones on the v880 ...

I did a bit of v880 zone script work this morning. The guts are all done, except for those darn bugs. Missing double-quote character here, misspelled bash parameter there. You know how it goes. It takes about 6 minutes to create a zone on the v880 with a zfs pool of essentially a stripe of 5 72GB mirrors (350GB).

Once I debug the dang sysidcfg, it'll be primed to go (minus mysql and jvm). I am staying with the original plan and run just the web server in each zone. It's all about the lack of time right now :(

Update: The script is off and running ... creating 500 zones, 4 at a time. Once they are installed, I'll start booting them. Admittedly 500 is a bit much, but restraint isn't a characteristic of this test :)

Comments:

I would have the script increase from 4 at a time to 5, 6 or even 8 at a time because I bet the CPUs are not at 100% while the script is going.
