Developer boards?

Post by nachoparker »

Hello,

My name is Ignacio Nunez (aka nachoparker), and I am the developer of NextCloudPi (nextcloudpi.com / ownyourbits.com / github.com/nextcloud/nextcloudpi ). NCP is a community volunteer project officially affiliated to Nextcloud with a big user base that builds and shares Nextcloud images for different ARM boards.

We currently support different boards, such as the Rock64 and the Raspberry Pi, and I am looking into adding an Odroid HC2 to my board farm, so I can generate and test images, based on Armbian (see my website or the nextcloud forums). I would like to review performance of Nextcloud on this board and publish some benchmarks on the blog, and of course share images with the community. The Odroid HC2 is a natural match for a NAS/cloud system like Nextcloud. NCP also comes with SMB and NFS support, so we are very excited about the possibility of centering NCP around it, instead of the RPi, which is not very well suited for a NAS.

Because this is a voluntary project that is funded by donations, I was interested in asking if you provide boards to devs so they can work on them.

If this is not the right place to ask, please let me know. Don't hesitate to ask me anything.

Thanks for your products!

Nice to meet you virtually.
You can try ODROID-HC2 remotely. viewtopic.php?f=29&t=32257
If the test result is fine for your development, we are willing to donate a couple of boards.

BTW, we've used the NextCloud on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with HC2 and it worked really well.

@odroid nice to meet you too, I have been an Odroid fan for a while

That is awesome news, thank you so much! I am excited to benchmark this against my Rock64 and my Pis.

Hello,

Is there any update on this? I am really excited to play with an Odroid HC2, and I am looking at hard drives right now.

It's already sold out - they had a small bath of 2000 devices. New devices expected after february (intel has cpu shortages).

HC2 not the H2 ;)

H2, HC2, easily mistaken at a glance.

Have you tried our ODROID Bench to test the HC2 performance?

Yes, I tried it. Unfortunately something is odd. I can't ssh in

Code: Select all

ssh -p 2221 odroid@maze.odroid.com                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
ssh: connect to host maze.odroid.com port 2221: No route to host
I could log in the Nextcloud instance and tried to upload but no luck, it gets stuck. Downloading directly fails with Server Internal Error.

The web interface though is waaay faster than on the RPi, as expected, it loads with cache in about 6s

In any case, my main intention is to benchmark LAN network speed, web interface load time, concurrent users and such here in my board farm, and compare it to the RPi and the Rock64. I started to write a python tool with bokeh for this that I plan on posting here https://github.com/nextcloud/nextcloudp ... ster/tests so the community and other volunteers have a common tool to compare boards.

Cheers!

@nachoparker,
Now you are able to ssh and also I was able to upload a file (500+MB). Please try again and let me know if it does not work.

Code: Select all

$ ssh -p 2221 odroid@maze.odroid.com
odroid@maze.odroid.com's password: 
Linux 8cba30d8ab99 4.14.66-147 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Aug 22 13:24:49 -03 2018 armv7l

Thank you, I tried again, but still it wasn't very useful for my purposes.

I was able to upload a file to NC, but I wasn't very impressed. Spicky traffic with a max of 2M/s. Trying a download just stalled with zero download traffic.

In any case, it doesn't make much sense to me to test through internet. A proper test should be in a local area network where everything is under control and we can rule out ISPs and so on.

I thought I could run some iperf tests between odroids but the addresses don't match so I am again at a dead end.

First, the IPs in the blog post are different than the ones configured. Also, couldn't access externally still to some of the ports (for instance ssh -p 2222 odroid@maze.odroid.com)

Code: Select all

root@8cba30d8ab99:/home/odroid# ip a | grep glo
    inet 172.17.0.2/16 brd 172.17.255.255 scope global eth0
root@8cba30d8ab99:/home/odroid# ping 192.168.0.20
PING 192.168.0.20 (192.168.0.20) 56(84) bytes of data.
^C
--- 192.168.0.20 ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 1012ms
Users have reported much better performance so I am positive this must be due to the internet connection. I get ~12M/s with my RPi3 at home while ~1M/s from maze.odroid.com

I would be happy to make benchmarks and comparisons in my board farm here and on the NextCloudPi blog if I can get my hands on a HC2.

Regards and happy new year!
