So, I am in the process of building a hot spare setup. The client will be recording all calls and keep them for a year.
I have 6TB of space (3 2TB diks) in each server to store everything.
From some tests I run, the backup that I have configured as hot swap doesn’t copy the recording files.
Well I prefer it this way, making a backup of the configuration and moving with scp all files to the spare server.
But how you would tackle the moving of the files between the 3 disks and keeping cdr reporting happy to be able to retrieve the file through the gui.
Any recommendations are welcome.
From previous installations and documentantion mounting a network share as the destination folder for MixMonitor is a bad idea that might cause recordings with unsync parts.
I would prefer first make the recordings in a local folder and then move it to a network share.
Ha, so you have some experience with recordings, you mentioned config files which is just a small file that is waiting to be served.
So you had success with this kind of solution. I though doing something like that but I don’t have a third storage server, just these two.
Well I though using RAID but to use all available space I must configure it as RAID 0 which I think it is not a good idea. On the other hand LVM seems the solution to go. If I loose one of the disks what happens to the LVM. I have never used a volume spanning three physical disks.
@Dicko I have never used glusterfs, can you share any link that you have used before.
