  1. Could you give more details how you managed to make it work without a VPN at all ? Where/how to you specify the port for torrenting ? It does not seem to have one like linuxserver had. Do I have to add one more port myself and configure it manually in rtorrent conf files when the container is started ?
  2. Hello everyone, Here is my situation : I used to make backups for my home computers using external drives which I then brought at work to avoid loosing everything in case of a catastrophy (fire, flood, etc.). I own 4x8TB external drives. I was organizing my things on those drives like that (my computer at home were all Windows) : Drive 1 : Computer1\D\Folder1 Computer1\E\Folder1 Computer1\E\Folder2 Computer2\D\Folder1 Drive 2 : Computer3\D\Folder1 Computer3\E\Folder1 Computer3\E\Folder2 Computer3\E\Folder3 etc... I was able to map complete drives or 2 drives from each computer onto each of my external backup drives. I used rsync to make backups (with cygwin) to minimize the time it takes. But now with Unraid I'm having a hard time thinking how I would organize that. My files are scattered accross multiple drives, my drives sizes don't match the sizes of my backup drives. I'm aware that my arrays is 36TB and my backups 32TB, but I'm currently using 21.6TB on my array, so it should be enough. Same thing goes for my shares, they don't match the external drive sizes. Any idea how I could make my life easier with backups ? I would like to be able to make incremental updates (once every 2 months when I bring back my drives at home) I would like to not have to think about how I need to "split" my data across my external drives I would like my external drives to be readable independently outside Unraid Not a hard requirement : If possible, a solution that can run on an other computer on the network (using shares to access files), since my license on the server has a limited number of connected devices, I would not be able to connect all external drives and mount them in Unassigned Devices at the same time Thank you
  3. So here is my setup: Unraid 6.8.2, connected directly in my router at 1Gbps with a static IP User share name 'ZZZ' created in Unraid with Cache set to Yes VM running Lubuntu 18.04 vdisk is in /mnt/user/domains/MyVM/vdisk1.img and currently resides on cache drive uses Network Bridge br0 network connection inside the VM is set with a static IP in the same subnet as my Unraid and other machines on my network ( mounted share 'ZZZ' inside my VM with NFS like this in fstab: /home/myname/ZZZ nfs rw,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14 0 0 When I run a speed test from inside the VM at the root mount point (which in on the vdisk in my cache drive) I get very good results: myname@MyVM:/$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=./speedtest bs=8k count=100k; sudo rm -f ./speedtest [sudo] password for myname: 102400+0 records in 102400+0 records out 838860800 bytes (839 MB, 800 MiB) copied, 1.18783 s, 706 MB/s However, when I go into my mounted share, I get pretty poor results compared to what I expected, it looks like to have a bottleneck somewhere: myname@MyVM:~/ZZZ$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=./speedtest bs=8k count=100k; sudo rm -f ./speedtest 102400+0 records in 102400+0 records out 838860800 bytes (839 MB, 800 MiB) copied, 8.1232 s, 103 MB/s I already checked that when I run this test it writes to the cache drive, so that is not a "writing to the array" issue. I think it is a network issue since the speed I get is near the limit of a 1Gbps link, but I can't find how to resolve it. Any idea ?
  4. I had the exact same problem, using a SATA M.2 drive as my cache... Very poor performance (~15MB/s) when mounting the drive with 9p in fstab, using nfs I get much better results (~400MB/s). Maybe tweaking mount options... but I can't find anything googling around too. IMO with this much slowliness, 9p should never be used.
