  1. I've installed the pihole exporter - but the web port seems to be hardcoded to 80. Can this be exposed as a setting? This doesn't work for people who run pihole in a docker in bridge mode who use port 80 for other things (such as unraid itself)...
  2. For what it's worth, I meant to tick "snapshots" but I didn't see it until after I pressed submit. But yeah, +1 to that.
  3. I see - and that's the trick they used in the video above? Very interesting. When the cache pool gets flushed to disk - does the file also stay in the cache pool?
  4. Oh of course. The comment I made was not disregarding unraid as an option - I'm just trying to understand its limitations. It's easy to find information about the benefits - but getting a list of up-to-date limitations is not as easy. Though it would be nice if there was a way to set specific shares to hold multiple copies of a file on different disks, to boost read performance (and boost resiliency)...
  5. Sneaky sneaky... In that case, what kind of performance should one expect from an actual array? I assume it's just going to be the speed of the drive minus a bit for overhead? In other words, it's going to pretty much always be slower than RAID?
  6. This video shows Linus and his somewhat ridiculous file server. Although the capacity is something I don't need (at least at the moment), the read/write speeds have me very interested. In contrast to, say, RAID5 (which I currently use and am contemplating migrating away from) where a file is striped across multiple disks (meaning they can work together to boost their performance), unraid stores a given file on one drive (plus parity), and so any read or write speed is going to be limited by the performance of that drive, right? So how is it possible to reach those sorts of speeds on one file (he had a single ~80gb test file) on spindle disks? I tend to use cheaper disks (the "I" in RAID), so one of my major concerns with switching to something like unraid is performance...
