I am a senior recovery engineer for enterprise storage systems. The team I'm on deals with complex problems and long term recovery solutions in varied and complex environments. What this means is that the average issue deals with data inaccessibility and/or loss and requires immediate attention and relief of symptoms often times followed by long term actions plans in order to mitigate further issues and bring the environment back to a healthy state. I work directly between support and post release in order to manage escalations and provide time-sensitive results to code issues.

While my specialization is in networking (TCP/IP,pcap analysis, infiniband, DNS, etc), I also utilize skills in file system management (ntfs/*nix/mixed perms, corruption, data layout), authentication and directory services (NIS/LDAP/AD), hardware diagnostics, custom scripting (Bash/Perl/Python), log file analysis, C code debugging, backup and restore and statistical analysis.

I tinker with Bash, VB.net, Python, Perl, Autoit, C and and SQL in my spare time.
I used to be a Telecommunications Specialist (VoIP, Data, Infrastructure).
My degree is in Classical Numismatics and Archaeology.

comment Can't get to router page
@gronastaj, there really aren't "classes" anymore. the mask is 255.255.255.0, so it is a /24 network, which is actually fairly common for SOHO networks. Do you get any different behavior when you connect using a cable? do you just type the address in, or do you preface it with http://?

comment How to speed up Connections to specific websites during peak times
In order to "cut in line" you'd need some sort of QoS set up, but that would be done at the router.

I also looked up the spec sheet for that drive (found here: wdc.com/wdproducts/library/SpecSheet/ENG/2879-771437.pdf) and the operating temperature for it is 0 to 60C

comment Too High Computer Conditions?
The Tjunction values I posted, the link was just for source reference. Per Intel, "Tjunction Max is the maximum temperature the cores can reach before thermal throttling is activated. Thermal throttling happens when the processor exceeds the maximum temperature." So as long as that processor stays under 85C, you won't have any temperature throttling issues with it.

comment can TCP packets impact UDP ones when server is on heavy load
The question isn't entirely clear (there are lots of variables involved and the type of load is important to note), but short answer is yes. If a server is overburdened by incoming (or outgoing) traffic, ALL traffic will suffer. If a server is overburdened by CPU usage, then all incoming traffic will suffer. If a server is overburdened by disk usage, then all incoming traffic will suffer. The exact way it will suffer is dependent on all the variables involved - but more or less you'll see latency and possibly loss.

While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes.
