  1. John_M, Thanks for the help, all my problems were linked to the failing CPU cooler. I had to wait on parts but I went all in on water cooling kit and now I'm averaging 37 C and all is running fine. 🤪
  2. I found the reason for the shutdowns. My cpu cooler has failed and my cpu os overheating. I brought the PC up in the bios, after about 10 min it shut down. I noticed the cpu temp was 93 c.
  3. I opened the log as soon as I could at boot and captured this before it shut off again.
  4. So, another update, the nvme I put in was reporting 57 degrees C. When I clicked on it to see the info page the server turned off. I removed the nvme and restarted, the system started a parity check due to unclean shutdown but I stopped it until after troubleshooting. I don't want it to crash in the middle of parity. When I pulled the nvme it was warm to touch but not hot. When I removed the nvme I put the samsung ssd in the main cache pool. I moved it earlier to try to separate libvrt from the other traffic when the slow down first started, that didn't help so I went back to one pool. I also noticed that it is taking more than 5 min to boot up now.
  5. Ok I changed the cables on all 4 of the Kingston SSDs, see attached Diagnostics after boot. Also, my ssds are all in an icy dock, I checked the power connectors but there are only two feeding the 6 ssds. Also, while I had it open I added another nvme for the second cache.
  6. John, I'm ready to get started on this again, I'm trying to find which drive has the cable problem, I have 4 of those drives in the pool. I'm pretty new to Unraid and I'm just curious where you found that.
  7. So I stubbed the 1660 and the Sanity check errors stopped. But it is still really slow and locking up. I think it might be network related, task manager keeps showing "System Interrupts" excessive cpu usage when the freezing happens. I googled it and "System Interrupts" usually means a hardware issue and most say it is likely caused by a nic or external device. The only things plugged in is usb keyboard/mouse and an Xbox controller wireless adapter. When I disable the windows network adapter I see less system interrupts but now I can't play most of my games. I think I need to walk away for the night.
  8. I have 2 GPU's, I use my GTX 1070 with Plex and Emby. Can I stub the 1660 in vfio for use with my VM and keep the Nvidia driver for the 1070?
  9. I have 2 Windows VMs, one on cache drive and on on nvme (followed Space Invaders's guide), I normally only use the nvme but I left the cache one on for testing. Both worked fine in 6.8.3 and both are extremely slow after upgrade. I noticed in task manager the "System Interrupts" was using over 60% of my CPU randomly on both VMs. It is setup as a gaming VM using Nvidia 1660 TI with 16G of ram, I thought that the GPU passthrough may be the problem so I tried VNC and it was still slow. I noticed this error while running GPU statistics plugin repeating and filling my log file so I uninstalled the plugin and the error stopped. I wasn't able to get the diagnostics after the random crashes but I did get the attached after running a VM. My system log shows these errors after I start the VM (the errors repeat until I shut down the VM). I checked my Bios and it is the newest, HVM and IOMMU are Enabled M/B: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. X399 AORUS PRO-CF Version Default string BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Version F2. Dated: 12/11/2019 CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X 16-Core @ 3500 MHz Memory: 128 GiB DDR4 (max. installable capacity 512 GiB)
  10. Turl, I didn't lose my docker and libvrt images like Joker. When I reverted I copied the entire backup like Squid suggested and I was able to recover all my dockers and Plugins with the exception of the Nvidia plugin. It had an error saying it was depreciated. Everything I read said it was no longer supported below 6.9 so I upgraded back to 6.9.1. Should I delete my Docker and Libvrt images and start fresh with 6.9.1?
  11. So I downgraded to 6.8.3 and the VM problem remained, in the downgrade process I lost my Nvidia driver so I tried running the VM with VNC. It was still slow and sluggish. So I upgraded back to 6.9.1, added the Nvidia driver again still the same problem with VM. I even deleted the VM and started fresh (No change). Now to add to the frustration my server keeps crashing. I'm only running dockers, no VM's running and it is crashing. The last crash it was pretty much at idle, with one Plex direct stream. I could really use some help.
  12. I have the same issue, everything was great in 6.8.3 but now (6.9.1) when I start my Win 10 VM the CPU maxes out at 100% and stay there until I force stop the VM. I did make a backup before I upgraded so can I just overwrite my flash with the backup files? Should I move all data off the Cache before I revert? It was already formatted btrfs.
  13. xxDeadbolt, thanks for this I have been struggling for awhile now. Under the old PIA server I used the socks user and password. I have been reading this thread and never saw that. I'm up and running now.
