Nice. I’m a pfSense guy too. The EPYC system is of particular interest to me though - how are you liking that?

Are you running hardware raid, zfs, etc for your storage array?

FIREWALL
Yes I was worried that this pfsense wouldn't be powerful enough but for home internet or small business it seems like it would be a pretty good fit. I've only had it for a couple of weeks so still getting the hang of it. First task was to setup the VPN and block all internet access once the VPN drops. Next task will be blocking ads and tightening the outbound firewall policy.

PROCESSOR
With my C2Q I'd see spikes when transcoding with plex or doing other tasks but with this EPYC I don't see the CPU utilization budge at all so it's definetly way overkill for 1 stream or file serving. I plan to setup alot VMs for lab usage and for hosting all the online services game downloads so should see the CPU get a workout.

STORAGE
When I built my C2Q years ago I used the onboard storage but the onboard Intel controller rain out of SATA ports so I had to use the other onboard controllers. As the amount of data increased and the flakiness of the other controllers I went through tons of troubleshooting with drives, cables, power and multiple controller cards and finally identified the issue as a controller issue (although SATA cable may have been a culprit once or twice). I then went with only using an SAS controller but had to go through a couple of those since some wouldn't work with the Gigabyte motherboard. Also the SAS controller wasn't used for RAID just for connectivity.

I've been using RAIDZFS3 with FreeNAS for about a decade now and it's been pretty solid. I can rearrange SATA cables, rearrange drives, take the drives out and stick them in another computer, etc and no issues. FreeNAS will just see it. When I want to upgrade the storage I just replace each drive and wait for it to resilver and I'm done.

I heard pfSense is a pretty great firewall. It seems to be rather an operating system designed just for being a firewall and kinda like a virtual router. I'd say it's quite powerful to use.

That is really positive - I like the idea too of effectively triple-fault parity. I'm currently (still) running hardware RAID 6 on an LSI SAS2 controller, with 10TB drives. I keep threatening to do ZFS "next time" but it has yet to materialize. Back to reading up on FreeNAS then!

My edge has been pfSense for a few years now and I really love it. Relevant to this crowd: I have the retro systems completely segmented off on their own VLAN, firewalled by pfSense so that they can only harm themselves (overkill perhaps, since nobody really cares to pwn a 98SE machine these days, but still).

For compute at home I went to Docker and haven't looked back. It is awesome to move to a declarative model, tell the platform how you want things to look and watch it emerge from nothing. With young kids running around, anything that gets me spending less time on server maintenance has been a great investment.
