Just for the case you're planning to use a BBU with your 9550 ... Don't
put it into a 2U case, rather use a 3U case. I had much problems with
the BBU temperature during high IO and CPU usage. Temperature went up
just a little bit and syslog told me "Battery temperature HIGH" after a
few minutes. HIGH means 45°C to 50°C, everything above means "TOO HIGH"
which deactivates write cache. Using a 3U case solved this problem and
everything works as expected, even when the system is totally busy with
IO and CPU.
