  1. Past hour
  2. if you need any more info please tell me . i played yesterday the ffxv in high settings and its was ok still little lag in the cut scene and battle so is it better to upgrade to the new ryzen and give 5 to 6 cores to fix the lag in games ?
  3. If system initializing comes before the unraid boot menu it could be that your USB isn't chosen in the bios as a boot device. Or it could be hardware failure. You can try to check the USB drive in windows and try to run the make boot able script again.
  4. I rolled back to 6.7.2 to gather some numbers. 100K files 200K files 6.7.2 Disk|SHFS: 0.43| 16.27 0.85s| 34.70 6.8.1 HL Off Disk|SHFS: 0.42| 18.94 0.82s| 43.03 6.8.1 HL On Disk|SHFS: 0.47| 26.97 0.93s| 57.31 I noticed something very weird. If I disable docker on 6.7.2 and the server is totally idle, doing on ls -l on a directory with 200K files takes ~51s (so it takes longer than if there's some minimal activity). If I open two terminals and run the same command in both at the same time, they both complete in ~11s. There are no disk reads -- this is all cached in RAM. The same thing happens if I kick off two background instances in the same terminal: for x in {1..2}; do { time -p /bin/ls -l --color=never /mnt/user/Download/benchmark &>/dev/null; } 2>&1 & done The same pattern happens in 6.8.1, but it's a bit slower overall. I'll also note that backing up to a sparsebundle file using TimeMachine and Carbon Copy Cloner over SMB became substantially slower in Unraid 6.8.0 and 6.8.1. The sparsebundle format creates 8MB band files in a single directory. With a large backup, that gets into the range of 50K-100K files in one directory. I'm not sure if that's part of the problem in this case, but it's another common instance where a lot of files end up in a single directory. It might be more closely related to the SMB slowness reported in these two threads. With 6.7.2 I'm getting a fairly consistent transfer rate of 13MB/s to a sparsebundle over SMB to a user share (wired gigabit ethernet). With 6.8.1 (with hardlink support disabled) I get very intermittent transfer spikes of 2~12MB followed by nothing for a while. Over a long period that's averaging out to ~0.8MB/s so far 🙁.
  5. I have purchased 3 separate switches. 2 of them are 24 port managed switches. The third is a 24 port managed POE+ switch. I have a 2 story house with a basement. Right now I am flipping back and forth between installing all the networking equipment in the basement or in a small closet off my bedroom on the first floor. It is kind of a trade off of convenience vs noise. But whichever way I do and up going, I have decided to break it up like this: Switch 1: 24 port A --> Covers all floor 1 jacks Switch 2: 24 port B --> Covers all floor 2 jacks Switch 3: 24 port POE+ --> Currently only for IP cams, wired AiMesh (asus routers) for wifi coverage, possibly convert to access points down the line. Here are my questions, what is the best way to connect these together? Do I connect switch 1, 2, and 3 all individually to ports on my router? Do I connect switch 3 to my router, then switch 1 and 2 to switch 3? Does any of this matter? Is it better to have all the equipment in one place? What I mean is, since switch 1 will cover floor 1, and switch 2 will cover floor 2, is it better to have both switches in one place and run longer cables or have switch 2 on floor 2 with shorter cabling between the switch and jacks? This would then only have one longer cable feeding the switch instead of 24 longer cables. Not sure if this would negatively affect bandwidth or not? Seems like it would with only one long feeding cable, but I guess it would be no different than multiple longer cables?
  6. Today
  7. can you help me to apply a patch in unraid 6.8.0 rc5 kernel? i need to apply vega reset patch like here, but with different vendor id +DECLARE_PCI_FIXUP_HEADER(PCI_VENDOR_ID_ATI, 0x687f, quirk_no_bus_reset); PCI_VENDOR_ID_ATI supposed to be 0x6863 instead of 0x687f I have search in internet how to apply it myself but no luck
  8. Hi there - thanks for the quick reply. No real reason why my Plugins aren't uptodate, I rarely use them, and have just updated them so they are the latest version. I do however keep track of my Unraid version, and it seems to suggest this is the latest version when I pressed the little "i" icon next to the version - this is how I have updated it in the past, however having forced an Operating System check, I notice as you suggest that v6.8.1 is available, so will update that now - thanks for the tip. Appreciate the suggestion on the drive in terms of its age - I will do a full Extended SMART test before contemplating restoring to that, but will also look at purchasing a replacement disk. None of the other drives show any SMART errors. Quick question for you - if I was to replace that 2TB drive with a 6TB drive (my parity array is 6TB) - will it happily rebuild that drive to a larger capacity drive, or does the replacement disk have to be the same size as what it is replacing? Thanks for your help. Cheers, Mike.
  9. I have a Windows gaming VM, with a fast NVMe drive in a single disk array providing the storage. I also have a gigabit internet connection, when I run a speed test it usually reports 95% of that speed. For the most part everything is working great. However, I noticed one quirk - when downloading a file over the internet that saves to the array, suddenly the network speed plummets - the download speed from the internet will max out at around 250 Mbit, and the network interface will be saturated. (Running an internet speed test during a big download like this will give me 10 Mbit speeds.) So I'm scratching my head trying to figure out what could be the issue here. The NVMe speeds as tested in the VM report at around 2000 MB reads and 1000 MB write to the array, so no issues there. The Virtio Ethernet adapter is showing as connecting at 100 Gbps, so that should be plenty fast enough. I know that when a file is downloading from the internet and saving to the disk, it comes in over the Virtio bridge and back out to the SMB share on unRAID - but given that the incoming internet bandwidth is 1 Gbit and the outgoing SSD bandwidth must be at least 20 Gbit (based on the array speed tests), I don't even know where to start looking to solve this problem. Any pointers would be much appreciated.
  10. Unfortunately you rebooted so there is nothing in the syslog to tell us what may have caused the disk to be disabled. Your Unraid version and some of your plugins are not up-to-date. Any reason why? Also, many of your disks are still ReiserFS.. SMART for that disk looks OK, but it is pretty old. Safest approach would be to rebuild to a new disk and keep the original as a backup in case there is a problem with the rebuild. I didn't check SMART for the other disks. Do any of them have SMART warnings on the Dashboard? If you really want to rebuild to that same disk then you should run an extended SMART test on it first.
  11. But the 4th Saturday is not actually 28 days, unless I am missing something? For example, the 4th Saturday in January this year is 1/25. The 4th Saturday in February is 2/22. This is exactly 4 weeks apart. But the 4th Saturday in March is 3/28. This is not 28 days past the last check, as there is actually 5 Saturdays in the month prior. This would throw the schedule off. Unless I am understanding this wrong?
  12. There is no root password for the minecraft container, just open a unRAID terminal (not from the container) and type in: 'docker exec -ti --user root MinecraftBasicServer /bin/bash' (without quotes and replace the MinecraftBasicServer with your containername). Also you don't have to be root to change it! Can't you just access ot from the smb share and change it?
  13. Hi there - thanks so much for your swift reply. The full ZIP is attached below. Welcome any insight in terms of next steps. Let me know if you need anything else. Best wishes, Mike. bargetower-diagnostics-20200120-1512.zip
  14. I'm having the same issue as well and unfortunately the above suggestion by johnsanc didn't help me either. Ryxen 3900x, Asus 570-E motherboard, three usb controllers (two of which are in different iommu groups) and all with the same ID. Trying to pass through group 33, no luck with either option mentioned here: /boot/config/go, added: # Bind USB For VM /usr/local/sbin/vfio-bind 0000:0d:00.3 --- Group info: IOMMU group 22:[1022:57a4] 03:08.0 PCI bridge: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Matisse PCIe GPP Bridge [1022:1485] 07:00.0 Non-Essential Instrumentation [1300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Starship/Matisse Reserved SPP [1022:149c] 07:00.1 USB controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Matisse USB 3.0 Host Controller [1022:149c] 07:00.3 USB controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Matisse USB 3.0 Host Controller IOMMU group 33:[1022:149c] 0d:00.3 USB controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Matisse USB 3.0 Host Controller --- I must be missing something obvious, first method doesn't work either for me. No USB controller ever shows up in other PCI devices.
  15. I have a few old games from an old power pc mac that I would like to see if I could setup a virtual machine to run. I know that QEMU has support for emulating completely different architectures but am completely baffled on how to set one up. I don't know if the QEMU binary for PPC emulation is included in UNRAID either. Anyone ever played with this idea or know anything about it?
  16. If the disk does in fact have files, then they would have been written after the disk was formatted. This could have even been during the rebuild. Or if it is a cache-yes share, then maybe they were moved to the disk from cache.
  17. Go to Tools - Diagnostics and attach the complete diagnostics zip file to your NEXT post.
  18. Put flash in your PC and let it checkdisk. While in your PC make a backup of flash. Try again, be sure to boot from a USB2 port.
  19. You formatted the disk. No doubt you have files somewhere on the array but what evidence do you have that the formatted disk has files?
  20. The files are there and accessible. These would have been added a few years ago.
  21. I'm going to say no. I had one of those ca plugins that did weekly backups, however, the folder it backs up to is a share on the array which I don't have access to now. I assume that ca plugin did a flash backup.
  22. Hi folks - I have a similar scenario. I have been running this Unraid array for years and notwithstanding a few new hard disks replacing some older ones, have had no issues with this array until today when one of my drives has become "red-balled" - or "Red X". I have undertaken a Smart Diagnostic Report and it doesn't appear to have any issues with the key stats of "Red Read Error rate" and "reallocated sector". Before rebuilding the drive from my parity (which is valid) I wanted to see if someone who is more knowledgeable about reading these SMART reports can check this drive to see whether it is indeed developing issues and should be replaced, or whether it is reasonably safe to rebuild to the same disk. SMART report attached. Thanks in advance. Best wishes Mike. WDC_WD20EARX-00PASB0_WD-WCAZAD181918-20200120-1457.txt
  23. thank you so much for the hardwork! rocking your plugin now
  24. I suddenly started seeing really slow transfer speeds (1 MB/s) to my UnRAID shared folders. A network test using a LAN Speed Test utility (from https://totusoft.com/lanspeed) confirmed that the server network adapter is only running at 10 mbps. Why would the network adapter suddenly drop its speeds to 10 mbps? Is that something that can be changed within UnRAID? (According to the specs it's supposed to be a 10/100/1000 adapter.) If the network adapter has suddenly flaked out can I install a PCIe network card? Any thoughts? I've attached the diagnostics if it will help. tower-diagnostics-20200120-0409.zip
  25. Added the linux in-tree driver to upcoming 6.8.2 release.
  26. got the firmware updated. Didn't get greeted w/a ton of udma crc errors (fingers crossed). Currently rebuilding array due to the disabled disk. Hope this works.
