 +====== Hardware ======
 +<box 43.5% right| The Fujitsu Primergy TX100 S2>{{:dsc01766.jpg?300 |}}</box>
 +The hardware specifications of the TX100 S2 are as follows:
 +  *3.06GHz Intel Core i3-540
 +  *2x2GB DDR3 ECC (4GB total)
 +  *Intel 3420 Server Chipset
 +  *Onboard hardware raid
 +  *2xSeagate 1.5TB drives configured in RAID0
 +  *Seagate 250GB drive for OS & application data
 +  *ATI ES1000 graphics adapter (VGA)
 +  *8x broken out USB ports
 +  *DE9 RS-232
 +  *Gigabit ethernet
 +  *Optiarch AD-7270H optical drive (I don't know the capabilities of this drive, as sony does not acknowledge this model!)
 +Under load, with all the disks spinning and the processor maxed out, the server uses about 50w. It idles between 20 and 30.
 +====== Software ======
 +As soon as I took it out of the box and had the drives installed and configured, I installed arch linux (64bit.) So far, arch has given me no problems what so ever and the system is running very stable. The machine is running headless, so if I want to control it I either use [[FreeNX]] or an SSH terminal like TeraTerm. If I absolutely have to access it and I don't have an SSH or NX client available I installed [[http://code.google.com/p/shellinabox/|shellinabox]] which is a ajax terminal client that runs very nicely inside most modern browsers.
 +The web server is running lighttpd in an effort to save a few resources that apache might other wise engulf. MySQL is installed, but not currently used for anything.  I have plans to configure an IRCd on it, but at the moment there is little/no need for that.
 +===== Server Stats =====
 +Here's some current server stats, generated by webalizer. These are updated every 5 minutes. 
 +This page will update with them if kept open that long.
 +====== Impressions ======
 +Overall I have been incredibly pleased with the TX100 S2. The hardware reminds me, in many ways, of a cross between a thinkcenter and an optiplex or poweredge, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. It's both incredibly compact and easy to work in due to the fact that the drives are stored in a swing out bracket that is exposed when the case panel is removed. As soon as the bracket is swung out, full access to the logicboard is provided.
 +====== Other ======
