Rookie (2/14)



  1. Now this is a good idea, and will probably be what I am doing this weekend now!
  2. HI mate, Strongly recomend you return this and try and buy one already flashed to IT mode from ebay. Something like this: I got my dell H310 from this seller, seems to specalise in these, and they are much cheaper than buying a new card. If not possible then hopefully someone here can assist you to flash it to IT mode.
  3. I purchased a couple of cheap ex apple 500gb 2.5" spinner from fb marketplace. Add them as unassigned drives and use them for all my torrents and seeding. Why? Torrents can be huge depending on I'm doing, and I don't like them adding additional writes or taking up space on my cache. As far as I am concerned, there is no risk to having a cheap drive used for torrents failing, because then I can just reload them. So the cheaper the better!
  4. I would suggest disabling C-states in the BIOS. I was running a 1600 AF for a time, even though it is still based on Zen+ it still causes issues with C-states. Example:
  5. Fascinating, I hadn't thought about that! I run an mtax case, so I only have the 1 PCIe slot and I am maxed out between the 8 from the LSI and the 4 on my motherboard, looks like you just gave me a way out. Had no idea about these expander cards.
  6. This happens to me after powerloss reset as well. I run a daily backup of this docker so I can restore normally, one of the most annoying things is the way it moves all my torrents into it's docker folder because it forgets all the category mapping.
  7. Great looking setup! One question, I have a similar LSI card which i smacked a 40mm Nocuta on like you, wonder how you knew the temp of the card? You mentioned it decreased the temp a lot. Love to see if I can measure how well my one is working. Also wondering why you went with an Expander card rather than just use the ports on your mobo for the rest?
  8. Thanks for all your hard work here TexasUnraid. I am quite shocked to see that you can bring it lower than an xfs cache. I just converted my desktop over to unraid over the weekend which has a cache pool and immediately jumped over to check if this was fixed, I will duck down the rabbit hole maybe in the coming evenings and see if I can replicate what you have done here. Couple of questions, I am using Influxdb and telegraf to monitor writes, do you mind sharing the monitoring software and process you were using to measure this as well?
  9. Following this I was able to get this configured to my Kingston M.2 ssd as well, however my cache is an crucial mx500. Poking about with the query, by setting the Serial# to the SSD, then AND Name, it appears none of the metrics appear for my SSD. The Smart Attribute is Total_LBAs_Written, yet querying the db for that appears to have no data for the serial number of my SSD. Looking at the smart attributes table, looks like the Serial# for my ssd is missing and in infinity symbol appears instead. How curious. Edit - Managed to get it working by looking at ID 246 instead of name. However it's reporting 360pb, so something still not quite right. Not sure these MX500's have a value for total reads in Smart stats.
  10. I have set this up but haven't got any images for my VM's or my Dockers. Is there some specific that looks at these that I can check out?
  11. So firstly, this drive was connected using a cheaper sas to sata connecter, and only 2 of the 4 are populated. One of the unused sata connectors from the HBA somehow wiggled loose of it's chains and appeared to be hitting the front fan? (I run a Node 804). No idea how this happened, however have used some more velcro staps on them. Suspect either the cable quality or fan assult to be the root cause, can't see any other reason. After I posed this I restarted and both drives connected to that cable were missing. I cable tidy up and reboot was able to rebuild back onto the disabled drive and all is well in the house. Thanks Jorge
  12. Plot twist, the system become unstable with 70% CPU running something called cmdhotplug=apply. I have just forced a shutdown, was unable to extract the logs :-(. Something going on here.
  13. Hi everyone! This is my first time having a disabled drive in Unraid. The drive is not that old and has not produced any SMART errors in the lead up to this. It is connected using a Dell H310 HBA card. At the moment I suspect this is a cable issue? What would would be the suggested next steps? Stop array, unallocate the drive, run a smart test, then assuming all good rebuild onto the drive? Thanks!
  14. There was some changes to passthrough with the latest version of Unraid, perhaps I'd start there. Do you current use an unbind script?
  15. Do you have a link to the video? That sounds.. very unsafe.
