  1. The Ultimate UNRAID Dashboard Version 1.5 is here! This is another HUGE 😁 update adding INTEGRATED PLEX Monitoring via Varken/Tautulli. This update is loosely derived from the official Varken dashboard, but I stripped it down to the bolts, modded the crap out of it, and streamlined it with a straight Plex focus. Honestly, the only code that sill remains from their official dash is the single geo-mapping graph, as it is not actually an editable panel, but rather straight JSON code. I wanted to say thank you to that team for providing a great baseline to start from, and all of their previous wor

  2. I have a fix for the file system not showing 'precleared' in UD. I also implemented the temperature display and reads and writes during a preclear. @gfjardim I see the problem with the blinking of the preclear status line in UD. UD does a refresh of the page every 3 seconds. You are updating the status periodically like when UD did not refresh itself. They are clashing. The best bet is to let UD do the page update and preclear just provides the information. Also take a look at the /usr/local/state/devs.ini file in 6.9 RC2. Unraid is providing disk information for

  3. Microsoft, Apple and Google all add/remove things in their OS to insure security and safety and can/will make old apps obsolete if they are not updated to the newest release. You are not being charged to update your OS to a newer version and will get all the benefits of the update as well. You have stated you have reasons for not updating and seeing there is no upside for staying with an an older release other than a personal choice isn't a valid reason for you to badger a Developer to go out of their way to accommodate you.

  4. I have updated the OpenVPN Server & Client plugins for the V6.2+ plugin manager. Post all issue you have in this thread !! To install. Install the plugins, go to the 'Extensions' page and enter the below links into the 'Install Extension' line and then click the 'Install' button. Client https://raw.githubusercontent.com/petersm1/openvpn_client_x64/master/openvpn_client_x64.plg Unpack your provider certificate/files to /boot/openvpn (create that folder if it's not exist) , can now be several ovpn files.

  5. Hi all! In search of a way to get my iCloud pictures on my array and keep them in sync with iCloud (pull only). I ended up writing a docker template for the boredazfcuk/icloudpd docker container. This is my first template so bear with me. If someone has suggestions or comments about it please let me know! The template is located here. https://github.com/Womabre/unraid-docker-templates Known issues - Your iCloud password cannot contain special characters (I know of * and & to be problematic).

  6. Yep. I assume the built in authentication with a strong password to be secure enough. Do you have evidence or hearsay to the contrary?

  7. Since all pre-clear does is read and write to the disk, if it caused it to fail then it was almost certainly going to fail shortly anyway. it might be worth seeing if you can get any SMART information from the disk, and if you can whether it can pass the extended SMART test. Either of those failing means the disk will need replacing.

  9. That's really strange that's the first report that I've got that it's not working or stopped working. Please keep an eye on it and contact me again if this happens the next time, maybe there was some other "bug" within Unraid that caused the error. Btw Please post the next time in the Plugin support subforums for DVB if this happens again. Also Happy New Year!

  10. You can get much more than that with SATA disks, see turbo write, I get between 100 and 200MB/s+, depending if I'm writing to the outer or inner sectors of the disks, SAS disks are not going make much (if any) difference with Unraid.

  11. I think you can just delete the file and restart the container and Plex will download it again. The process should not flash but show until it's finished transcoding. Why not start with a new fresh Plex container and appears to be sure there is no leftovers from the guide and your attempts. Then follow the instructions on the first page of the Nvidia driver thread.

  13. Doch, weil wenn der Ordner leer ist, dann verschiebt der Mover den Ordner auf die HDD und dadurch muss die HDD anlaufen, damit Papermerge den Ordner scannen kann. Liegt der leere Ordner dagegen permanent auf der SSD, dann passiert das nicht. Was auch richtig ist, wenn der Share appdata auf "prefer", "only" oder "yes" steht. Das ist ja der Sinn an der Sache. Der Share wird gecached. Wenn der Share auf "Prefer" steht, dann nutzt der Share ausschließlich den Cache, außer die SSD läuft voll. Bei "Only" nutzt er ausschließlich den Cache. Und bei "Yes" nutzt er den Cache b

  14. My personal opinion on that is that USB is more reliable than the drives. I've got a total of 24 hard drives between two servers, and my pair of flash drives have outlasted every one of the drives. The USB is only used as a boot device. It's basically used extremely little (only at boot and only to store any settings changes). At the end of the day, most users will actually read or write to it maybe at best one a month. You're never actually out of luck. You can always set up a trial key on a new flash. Assign the drives accordingly and you're basically off to the race

  15. Definitely a bad choice for Unraid. Ideally parity operations happen in parallel. Any write to the parity array will read and write both parity and the data disk to be written, or read all disks then write parity and the data disk depending on how you have it set. And rebuilds, parity checks will read all disks. If each disk has a separate connection, all this can happen with all disks at the same time. If all of the disks are trying to use a single connection to the computer, then things are going to go very slowly since it has to work with each disk separately.

  16. That was something needed a year ago to get hardware decoding working. Hardware encoding have been working without any needs to rename files and create files. So revert your changes.

  17. [Qemu 5.2] -- Pay attention to addresses in your config.plist for devices When Qemu 5.2 will be available for unraid (I'm still on 6.8.3, qemu 5.2 should be inside 6.9rc2 (?), or for sure in 6.9 stable) pay attention to addresses of your devices in your config.plist I just tried Qemu 5.2 on another machine and I noticed that layout-id for built in audio was not correctly applied, resulting in no audio detected once inside mac os, but boot chime working well at boot (bootloader level). I then noticed that also the built-in=true property of my en0 ethernet was not applied i

  18. If you have modified any config files, you have probably messed up something. There is no reason to modify any config files to get hardware transcoding working. You could try to disable both transcoding options, restart the container and then enable it again and restart the container.

  19. Data drives in unRAID are separate disks each with its own independent file system. No RAID. User share configurations determine how files are allocated across the independent disks. Shares can be limited to one disk, span all disks, or anything in between. Allow the allocation method and split levels help determine how full disk get before spilling over to other disks and at what point content folders should be split and allowed to spill over to other disks the share is configured to use.

  20. Unraid IS NOT RAID. Best if you don't even attempt to use a RAID controller with Unraid. Which controller is it? Can it be flashed to IT mode?
    1 point
  21. Yes, because it saves energy and the performance is not limited to the bridge controller of the adapter. As an example ASMedia has a low energy consumption, but also a low performance which is sufficient for 2 HDDs. LSI has a huge performance, but drains more power than the entire board incl the CPU in idle. My suggestions: - Fujitsu D3644-B (ECC, 6x SATA) - Gigabyte C246M-WU4 (ECC, 8x SATA, two M.2) - Asus WS C246M Pro (ECC, 8x SATA, two M.2) - Gigabyte W480M Vision V (8x SATA, two M.2, 2.5G LAN, but sadly no ECC RAM with i3, only with Xeon) Note: i

  22. Some commend - Use 2 RAM module better then 4 module - If add-on GPU not for gaming, plex, passthrough ( just be local console ), I may go to X570 ( Asrockrack have similar MB ) with 4000 series APU, i.e. 4750G ( or use IPMI VGA without iGPU / GPU ) If accept 8core ( no 16thread ), then recommend Intel 9700K route + C246 ( 8 port SATA ). This depends on your need or like.

  23. I also got that error. I deleted the custom_ovmf folder and started over. I would also set it up using the default configuration - it will be slow, but it will work - and then once the OS is installed and working, you can edit the hardware, edit the helper script and run it again. That's what I've just done - trying to give the machine more cores and running helper before the initial setup was done did not work for me.

  24. Installiere dir auf dem Unraidserver den Docker NginxProxy. Nun brauchst du eine dynamische DNS z.B. DuckDns. In NginxProxy kannst du für die DNS ein Zerti generieren und auf den Nextcloud Port weiterleiten. In der Fritz eine Portweiterleitung 443 auf den NginxProxy machen. Port steht dort unter den Dockereinstellungen glaube 18443. Grüße

  25. I could tell from watching this saga play out that a huge misunderstanding and lack of communication was at the root of it. The LSIO guys were clearly blindsided after a tremendous effort on the part of those mentioned to provide a functionality in unRAID that was far more than just a niche solution. I think Tom unwittingly underestimated both the effort put forth by others and the widespread appeal of the previous solution to the community and went about releasing a native solution without fully understanding the potential impact and without communicating his intentions beforehan

  26. Hi Everyone Unraid is great and I am like many others using my Unraid server for Plex (And of course other things) So I would really like to collect all the tweaks and "Hack" done by others to increase performance of large Media servers doing transcoding First just to get the "normal" recommendation listed: Appdata on cache drive (Fast as possible - SSD/M2) HW encoding using Unraid Nvidia plugin + GPU Structure of media in each folder/optimize files for transcoding? Specific Unraid tweaks: Moving transcoding to RAM (Update b

  27. I found by accident another tweak: Direct disk access (Bypass Unraid SHFS) Usually you set your Plex docker paths as follows: /mnt/user/Sharename For example this path for your Movies /mnt/user/Movies and this path for your AppData Config Path (which contains the thumbnails, frequently updated database file, etc): /mnt/user/appdata/Plex-Media-Server But instead, you should use this as your Config Path: /mnt/cache/appdata/Plex-Media-Server By that you bypass unraid's overhead (SHFS) and write directly to the ca

  28. The easiest way to solve this is to: disable the docker and VMs services under Settings set the appdata and system share to Use Cache = prefer if they are not already set to that. start the mover from the Main tab. This will move files that should be on the cache to optimise performance from array to cache when mover finishes you can re-enable the docker and VMs services.

  29. This definitely needs to happen. It has been promised for over 3 years. Or, at least, the Doc needs to be changed to reflect that we still only have NFSv3 and NFSv4 cannot be enabled. I tried to edit the wiki, but I don't have permissions. buzz
