    running mdadm

    No. unRaid replaces the entire 'md' device driver.

    WD MyBook 10TB $145 & 8TB $126

    Do these have the reset issue where you might need to do something special for older connectors after shucking them?
  3. Can you ask a meeseeks to improve the forum search functionality?
  4. Also, these cmds are more meaningful for BTRfs since its special... btrfs fi us /mnt/cache btrfs fi show /mnt/cache btrfs filesystem df /mnt/cache ....... Also, I think Johnnie will have you run some sort of cmd that looks like the following, I dint know their exactness but this is something to give you a heads up. Caveat: dont run these specific examples that I typed out but wait for the exact cmds from Johnnie. btrfs balance start -m /mnt/cache Btrfs balance start -dusage=5 /mnt/cache
  5. What version? There's other manual commands you need to run on older unraids for BTRfs since it really wasn't ready for general use. Newer kernals with newer BTRfs may have addressed that issue. Then again, it might be some other BTRfs issue. I'm sure @johnnie.black will drop his knowledge on the issue(s) when he can.
  6. The only usable option I have seen is to entirely ignore or block users with animated avatars, because of the forum's lack of display avatar options.
  7. The one you named (squid) are not paid by the company. Only the following 4 @limetech, @jonp @eschultz and @SpencerJ as listed on this page: https://unraid.net/about Everyone else is just a member of the community.

    What is your longest Unraid up time?

    I mentioned this in the previous thread about this very topic ... It's close to well over a year, and then it was only because of a power outage that was nearly an entire day. One of the earlier thread that even had an actual poll ...
  9. It all depends ... if all clients need the server to transcode or if no clients need the server to transcode. Its far easier to support better clients that do not need server-side transcoding.

    New notification providers: Join & Telegram

    Can't one simply use email notification to integrate with Telegram? At least thats what their entire website says and pushes: https://etlgr.com Or is that not the telegram you're looking for?
  11. As shown earlier to someone else, you need to click on a few more places. In particular on the right hand side of your core 2/6, and core 1/5 and core 3/7 columns.

    v6 to v7 or v8 or v9 free ?

    Yes it is a company, but none of the posts in this thread are from LimeTech.

    v6 to v7 or v8 or v9 free ?

    Nothing is definitive and we dont work for the company and things could possibly change in the future, but here is how things have historically been treated from my personal experience: Your license is good for life for the version you purchased. Same license from 4.x has been valid for version 5.x upgrades. Same license from 4.x/5.x has been valid for version 6.x upgrades. There have been huge changes from version 4.x to version 6.x during its 10+ year span. The OS went through multitude of feature enhancements, from only supporting 32bit to supporting 64bit, from supporting ide to supporting sata, to supporting drives over 2tb, to supporting even higher number of data drives, to supporting dual parity, to supporting cache drive pools, to supporting virtual machines, to supporting device pass-through, to supporting docker containers, to supporting newer cpus, to supporting more cpu cores, to supporting more memory. Thats is why most feel comfortable in saying you will likely have the license for life and will be able to upgrade to the next version.

    Got Fiber, now slow sabnzbd speeds

    Have you tried NzbGet instead of SabNZBd to see what speeds that gets?

    Last free version with 3 drives?

    Latest versions have Trials you can use for a small time, and when you're satisfied it works you can buy a license. Pricing details here: https://unraid.net/pricing The cost of even the Basic model (6 drives for $60) amortizes out for under $6.67 a year for your 9 years of existing use and will decrease even further as the years go by. I find this software well worth the 2 licenses for Pro Tier (2 * $130 today) even though I only have 1 active server with 6 devices (1 parity, 3 data, 1 cache) now.
  16. Depends on what you mean by "heavy loads", are all of your drives spinning up / spun up and being used like they are for parity checks?

    Possibility of renaming root user

    At least you have solid tastes in the user name...

    Adding an SSD into a mechanical array

    For others reading along that may not realize what the OP does ... writes to the parity protected SSD will still be limited to the speed of the physical spinner parity drive(s). Reads will be as fast.
  19. Is there any way of setting the default power mode of the video card? It's fundamentally broken and the fault of the video card if it doesn't boot into an idle mode by default (as tested by booting into your PC BIOS). This is only something Nvidia and the video card manufacturer can fix through changing settings in the card's BIOS.

    Memory Leaks?

    Not experienced anything remotely like that. My server only ever reboots for OS upgrades, typically going for 180+ days. I'm still running on 6.5.3, so uptime would have been since June 2018 if it weren't for power outage of 1 hour or longer. root@UNRAID:~# uptime 19:50:16 up 178 days, 5:14, 1 user, load average: 0.12, 0.08, 0.03

    Boot order/priority for VMs and Dockers

    I think the built-in/plugin functionality allows to control start order of dockers or vms separately, but no order dependency between those 2 groups. Anything more and you'd have to set dockers not to auto-start and use a custom user script to test for vm running and if so then start your list of dockers.
  22. Let me ask a question first … What do you have in your AppData directory that needs to be parity protected? The only items I have there are docker configurations which are backed up using the plugin "CA Backup AppData".
  23. Thats how it always worked. /mnt/user/foo includes everything from /mnt/cache/foo /mnt/user0/foo does not.
  24. Upgrade unRaid to latest RC 5. Early RC Kernels have large issues that can cause system stability issues. Try that first.

    New Emby Docker

    Again, sorry to see such bugs affect anyone. The good parts of the discussion starts on page 5 of this thread, with some trying normal file and directory permissions before trying the immutable attribute (chattr +i). I have all my movies/shows/videos set as +i but leave the metadata info and pictures from scrapers left as modifiable since they can easily be recreated.
