Network Configuration

The network card eth2 no longer works, and is unused. <== needs verification:

   4: wlp6s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN qlen 1000
   link/ether a4:c4:94:1f:6b:cf brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
  • IP Address Farm: (farm)
  • IP Address UNH: (unh)
  • IP Address RAID: [1]

Software and Services


Pumpkin uses the standard iptables configuration.


Pumpkin is the master Splunk node and stores all of the splunk data in /data1/splunk. If you want to access the Splunk web interface it is at https://pumpkin.unh.edu:8000 (if you're connected via the Farm), or you can forward port 8000 over SSH.


Pumpkin shares two data stores (/data and /scratch) over NFS. They can be accessed at /net/data/pumpkin and /net/data/scratch from any machine.


The RAID is currently split.

Disk 1 to 17 @ 4TB
  • Disk 17 is hot spare
  • RAID Set #00
  • Volume: data lun(0/0/0) is RAID6 = 56 TB
  • Translates to /dev/sda1 mounted on /data
Disk 19 to 24 @ 750 GB
  • RAID Set #01
  • Volume: scratch lun(0/0/1) is RAID0 = 4.5 TB
  • Translates to /dev/sdb1 mounted on /scratch
Disk18 is N/A

The RAID card can be monitored at login as "admin" with a password that is described on the RAID page.

Software RAID

There are 2 internal drives in Pumpkin forming a software RAID. Note these are *not identical* partitions on the drives, so the RAID does not look symmetrical. Blame the installer.
