stat1001 is way out of warranty, and we've agreed to replace it. stat1001 is mostly a webserver, and not a usual 'stat' box, in that regular users don't get access to it. We'll probably rename this new node with a non-stat name. Maybe a misc element name!
Anyway, the replacement box needs a decent amount of storage, but RAM and CPU can be slim. stat1001 has 8 x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5640 @ 2.67GHz, and 32G RAM. I'm not totally sure what the /dev/sda drive is on stat1001, but it is 6 TB.
We only use 1.6 TB on stat1001, and I'm not sure if this will grow. Shooting for a replacement with 4-6 TB of usable storage would be great. Drive redundancy is good, but we don't need any performance, so mirrored raid would be fine.
So, anyway, something with at least 16G ram and 4 TB of useable redundant storage is all this box need to be.
This should be installed within the Analytics VLAN, but it does not matter which row.
