  1. I've noticed the same behavior on my Gaming Server (unRaid 6.9.2). The server ran for several months without any problems and I could not find any impairments in various, not particularly performance-hungry games. Now I have tried Battlefield 2042 and the CPU performance is extremely bad at almost 100% load, while the GPU works at 30%. That means sometimes under 30 FPS. Now I know that BF is in no way optimized for performance yet, but the game still runs better on significantly worse systems. So I did some testing and found something similar to your problems… VM (Intel Xeon E-2246G): With VMs turned off and hardly any CPU usage, unRaid shows Turbo Boost over 4700 MHz (max Turbo for this CPU is 4,80 GHz): Then, when the VM is started and idle, the CPU does not go over 4600 MHz: And now it's getting weird... As soon as I start a game on the VM, the CPU no longer goes over 4500 MHz. Even if the load is almost 100%, as it is the case with BF 2042 started: The full turbo boost potential of 4.80 GHz of the CPU is never used and the more CPU power the VM would actually need, the less is used. Did you find out why? Does anyone have a solution?
  2. Hey bastl, thanks for your reply. Obviously I should have explained it in more detail... It's not that the software won't work. However, it does not accept a license for a virtual machine. It would work with a license for a physical machine, but the licenses for a VM are much cheaper. It's all about the license costs. The software is Acronis Cyber Backup which is used to back up special files from a database. In order to be able to work at the file level, the software needs an agent on the VM. The host system and the VM itself do not have to be backed up via the software - so there is no software installed on the host system. In such a use case, the agent on the VM checks what kind of system it is, informs the cloud console (also license server) and is provided with a corresponding license. In this case, unfortunately, this does not work because, as I now know, only the CPU ID flags are used as a criterion to check whether it is a VM or not. Knowing this, the question for me was whether it would be possible to switch to Quemu64 with an existing system without any problems and what disadvantages or perhaps advantages this would bring.
  3. Hi all, I am quite new to Unraid and looking for a way to back up the whole server: The flash drive, Shares, VMs and Dockers. I myself can save the data to another Unraid server and in rotation to external drives, but I would like to discuss the possibilities in general. So far, I found the following solutions... CA Appdata Backup / Restore (v2) Plugin: For backing up the appdata folder, restarting the dockers automatically. CA Appdata Backup / Restore v2 Danioj’s script to save VMs, described in Spaceinvader One‘s excellent videos: unraid-autovmbackup Backing up and restoring VMs in unRAID manually Backing up VMs in unRAID automatically Mgutt’s script for incremental backups using rsync: rsync Incremental Backup Which method can you recommend and for which use case? I like to find out what is best practice. What combinations are you using? Is there another plugin or docker that you use to back up your Server? Greetings, Leo
  4. Hi all, I have a problem where a specific software, running on a Windows Server 2019 VM can’t detect the System as a virtual one, and as a result, the license of the software cannot be assigned correctly. Hypervisor is Unraid 6.8.3. I am in contact with the development team of the software and they did some testing and told me that their software uses the CPU ID flags to check if it is a virtual machine or not. That brings me to the conclusion that the CPU mode “Host Passthrough” (VM settings) causes the “problem”. I am not very familiar with the deeper virtualization technology, but I know that “CPU Host Passthrough” is recommended for better performance. There is certainly a reason why “Host Passthrough” is the default setting. What else are the benefits over Qemu64? Stability? As this is productive System with some apps running on it, can I easily switch to Qemu64 or are further problems to be expected? I definitely want to use the better technology and don’t want to switch to Quemu64 if it brings any important downsides. In the end, the software development team has to come up with another solution to identify the systems… Greetings, Leo
  5. Thank you very much. Works fine again!
  6. Should be no port issue... And btw... Sab is still downloading, but not accessible via Web UI.
  7. Same issue here after auto update of SABnzbdVPN was performed. All I see in the log are the following warnigs (no errors)... I am using Unraid 6.8.3 and Sab with custom VPN via openvpn.
