  1. Wow! This is exciting. I've been interested in this for months. How does this compare to Calibre? And does it support sending books to Kindle over email? I wonder if this app is overkill for someone who reads maybe 1-3 books a year and doesn't follow any authors in particular. I just like the idea of sticking to the *arr ecosystem. Thanks for this! Excited to give it a try regardless.
  2. My whole backup solution is a bit messy right now. Currently I use Rclone, Google Drive, and BackBlaze B2. The way it works is that I have about 70GB of important data (documents, music/video projects, graphics, etc) in a Google Drive folder on my Mac. If there's anything I'm done with, like if I finish a video project, that gets manually transferred to "cold storage" on Unraid and eventually up to B2 through Rclone (User scripts plugin, once a day). But for security, I keep an offline version of Google Drive on my server and also back that up to B2. So basically when it comes to my daily-use files: desktop Google Drive folder -> Google Drive cloud -> Unraid Google Drive share -> BackBlaze B2. And of course I also have more cold storage shares on Unraid that also go to BackBlaze B2. What I'm thinking is skipping the Google Drive middle-man and just using Rclone from my Mac to Unraid shares. Maybe even making like a "warm storage" intake share on Unraid so I can still manually move stuff to the cold storage shares. But how well would Rclone work for this? I know it's CLI only which is fine, I'm comfortable with that, but I'm worried it won't be as robust. As in, I won't really know about errors or issues. I'm also worried about how it handles constant file changes, like if I'm working on a music project in a folder that Rclone touches and files get frequently created/deleted. Also, what would happen if an Rclone Mac -> Unraid sync happens at the same time as the Unraid -> B2 sync? Do they communicate with each other somehow? Is this worth looking into? Any tips would be appreciated. I'm trying to de-google and simplify a bit in general. How do you all manage your daily storage and cold storage backup?
  3. Hey is there any way to run this with the OBS virtual webcam? I'm not seeing "start virtual camera". I'm trying to use it as a way to stream video files from my server through "VLC Video Source" and into Discord. It sounds like no matter what I'll need to run Discord + OBS on a VM and tunnel the stream to it. But I assume that would be better performing considering with an OBS docker I can pass through my GPU (which is shared with Plex) and solely use the VM to upload the stream.
  4. Hello, lately I've been having an issue where some of my torrents from public trackers get stuck at 99.9% done. This then doesn't trigger the stop ratio rule so I end up just endlessly uploading and wasting bandwidth. I try to be a good seeder but not that good lol. The only manual solution I've found is if I right click on the torrent and do "force re-check", rTorrent will throw this error: And then it will crash: But once it's backed up, it's instantly fixed: Does anyone know what's going on here? It seems like it's actually done on rTorrent's end and it's just not reporting to ruTorrent? And therefore not reporting to Sonarr to import.
  5. I set my media share to not touch the cache. But yesterday I thought, I don't remember why, let me set it to use cache. Today I realized why. Mover doesn't seem to like the hard linked files in the cache and now they're stuck. Mover won't touch those files no matter how many times I invoke it. So, I figured I could manually move the files in /mnt/. I know the hard links will break, but I'll just re-import with Sonarr/Radarr, no big deal. My question is, what's the right terminal command? I wanna make sure I don't mess anything up. Would I use: mv /mnt/cache/media /mnt/disk4/media ? Thanks for the help!
  6. Yes I did finally! Thanks to this: Looks like you don't need the /mnt/user/ part of the path. Ended up adding some exclusions and my full excluded folders path is this: binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Crash Reports/,binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Logs/,binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Media/,binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Cache/,.DS_Store,*.log,*.log.*,*.tmp,.Recycle.Bin Adding that made my appdata backup go from 4 hours to 15 minutes, and 149 GB (compressed) to 11.1 GB (compressed).
  7. What's the format for excluding folders with spaces in the path? And multiple paths? I'm trying to exclude: /mnt/user/appdata/binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Cache /mnt/user/appdata/binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Media Currently I have this: "/mnt/user/appdata/binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Cache","/mnt/user/appdata/binhex-plex/Plex Media Server/Media" Is that the correct format? Also it doesn't look like you can use spaces in the field. I can only copy and paste space.
  8. I was wondering why my appdata backups were so huge. I looked at my appdata on QDirStat and noticed these two folders were taking up 99% of the space: Is it safe to exclude /Media and /Cache from CA Backup and Restore? From what I understand Cache is just, well, cache. And /Media stores thumbnails which I do actually really like and prefer to keep on. My only concern about what I don't want to lose in a failure and restore situation is: collections, play history, user history, playlists, and custom posters/backgrounds that I've made and uploaded for various items.
  9. Thank you for the response! I enabled mirror to flash. So I assume once this happens again, I can grab the log file from the flash and post it here.
  10. The configuration is the one I posted above: Is there anything I should change? Thanks!
  11. Hello! Looks like it happened again. A lot sooner than usual. Attached are the logs with syslog server enabled. Thanks!! apollo-diagnostics-20210515-2151.zip
  12. Sounds good! I enabled syslog: I'll post again next time it happens. Thanks for the help!
  13. This started happening maybe 3 months ago. Possibly since the 6.9 upgrade. I'll notice Plex is offline. Then I try to log into my server's UI and any docker containers inside and outside the network and none of them load. If I try to SSH into my server it says the host is down. No errors or warnings on my push notification app. My server is never doing any tasks or anything to cause it, it seems to be just idling. The only fix I've found is I log into the IPMI interface and reboot my server. Everything is always fine when I reboot but because it's an unclean shutdown it starts a parity check which is a little annoying. I downloaded my diagnostics right after reboot. Can anyone see what the problem could be? apollo-diagnostics-20210509-0752.zip
  14. I assume this is a complete non-issue but figured I'd ask anyway. My old Kingston 16GB USB 3.0 drive kicked the bucket. I went out and bought the only USB 2.0 drive I could find, a SanDisk Cruzer 32GB USB 2.0. I installed Unraid from a 2 week old backup .zip using the USB creator and moved over the registration. The only odd thing is Unraid acknowledges 30.8GB of space, but the file size is 15.4GB. Is this a boot drive or vfat file system limitation? If it helps, it's plugged directly into the motherboard USB 2.0 slot. Thanks!
  15. Only one of my remote users is having issues the past week or two where on different TVs (Roku TV), iOS, and a Macbook some episodes won't play or will get stuck at the 33% mark. They tried it on two networks in different houses. We also tried on a new Plex account and same issues. It's really a long shot because this is so oddly specific and I'm not even sure what kind of debugging I can do, but does anyone have any ideas if this sounds remotely familiar to other common issues? Once again none of my other users using varying devices, some of them using the same platforms, are having issues. My port is open, internet is working, I've tried playing the same episodes and they worked fine. On my end it shows that the episode is playing but on his end it's not.
  16. I ended up making this folder: appdata\binhex-rtorrentvpn\rutorrent\user-plugins\tracklabels\labels which didn't exist before. And did what I outlined before and after restarting ruTorrent it works! I made a backup in case a docker update breaks it, as you mentioned. If so then I can copy that script. Thanks for the help!
  17. This isn't an important issue but I was curious if there was a way to upload icons for more specific labels? I just prefer using, for example, the word "movies" which doesn't trigger an icon over "movie" (which does). I also have other words I'd like icons on. In other seedbox installs of ruTorrent I managed to find the folder that contained these icon files and it was as simple as copy/pasting the movie.png file and renaming it to movies.png. I couldn't find that folder in this docker, though. Best I could find is this folder that does contain all those icons: https://github.com/Novik/ruTorrent/tree/master/plugins/tracklabels/labels. So at least I have the files I could download and rename but I'm just not sure where to put them. Anyone know? Thanks!
  18. Ah okay. So basically the connection just got loose? I think it was the tape mod then. Snipping the 3.3v wire should be better. Thanks! I’ll let it rebuild.
  19. So in the past few days I successfully removed disk 1 from the array. Rebuilt parity using New Config with no errors. Ran another parity check and still no errors. All my disks reported no short SMART errors, no filesystem errors, I checked a number of times. I also installed my new power supply and I'm not using any adapters, all drives plugged straight into the PSU. I was covering the 3.3v pins using Kapton tape and the drives were being recognized. Everything looked fine and felt like it was running as good as ever while I was spending all day downloading a lot of data that I lost. Suddenly tonight I get a message saying that disk 2 has read errors and is being emulated. It had 1132 read errors. Because I already replaced the power supply and cabling I tried replacing the SATA cable. In doing so my 3.3v kapton tape mod got loose so my drive wasn't detected at first. I fixed it but Unraid detected it as a new drive. Could be from the read errors though but it thought my drive was a new device so it started a Data Rebuild. An hour into the data rebuild it hit read errors again (1024 errors this time). Attached another diagnostic zip from after that. I shutdown my server, ended up deciding to just snip the 3.3v cable in case my tape mod was causing issues (it's a modular power supply anyway), turned my server back on and now the only option was to run a Read Check. But my drive is still disabled with it's contents emulated. I checked xfs_repair, no issues, short SMART test, no issues. So I’m running a Read Check. Any ideas what's going on? I'm really worried about losing my data. apollo-diagnostics-20210307-0057.zip
  20. So my hard drives (including disk2) were plugged into a Molex to Sata power cable. I took that cable out and have them plugged into a Sata extension power cable. After doing so I ran another parity check and it just finished with no sync errors and no read errors on any of my drives. Sounds like you could be right and disk2 was a power issue. It could even be that disk1 from my past threads was also a power issue. Regardless, my higher quality replacement PSU should arrive tomorrow with it's 10x Sata power slots and I'll be omitting all extension cables to my rig; all my drives will be plugged directly into the PSU. Even if it's fixed now I'm sure that PSU will be a worthwhile upgrade. I'll still go through with an RMA with disk1 as well. For all I know even if this fixes the file corruption issues it could have been permanently damaged. Thanks for all the help!
  21. Thanks for the reassurance that it could be PSU! I double checked with a PSU calculator and it recommends 379W. If I max out my drives it would be 401W. But for all I know this 400W PSU isn't delivering 400W. I'd still want to aim for 500W+ to be safe. Right now with my re-cabling and removing Molex to Sata, things seem pretty stable but I'll wait until the parity check finishes in 18 hours to confirm no read errors on disk 2. I ended up un-shucking and returning the replacement drive to Best Buy since all said and done I really wouldn't need the extra space post-RMA. If disk 2 is okay then I'll continue with the RMA of disk 1. I'll try to get the lost+found data off it but if I can't, I'll just remove it and do a New Config. Nothing of importance wasn't backed up, so it's not worth digging through. I'll also replace the PSU just in case, of course. Edit: Replacement PSU ordered: Seasonic FOCUS GX-550. It has 10 SATA connections out the box (2x, 4x, and 4x) so no need for adapters. Also bought Kapton tape for the 3.3v issue. It's 80+ Gold, has a fanless mode, modular so I can keep unnecessary PCI cables out the case. Hopefully that helps long term stability even if it's not directly the root of this issue. Just waiting on the parity check, 13.6% done with no errors.
  22. I was thinking of replacing the power supply one day anyway for a more efficient and better one than my EVGA N1 400W. I can do a whole power supply and cable overhaul if it really seems to be the real root of all these issues. SATA cables are pretty cheap although would you think it's more of a power cable issue than a data cable issue? My only concern is what would the best way be to connect these drives and avoid the 3.3v pin issue? Right now I have my two SSD's connected direct to SATA power, then my parity disk and disks 1-3 on a Molex to 4x SATA power cable. Then my disk 4 (and eventually would be 5-7) on the same SATA as the SSD but with a SATA to 4x SATA power cable with the 5th cable cut (for the 3.3v issue). I'm looking at the Fractal Design Ion+ 560P as a replacement since it has more wattage in case, more efficient, and modular. It supports 6 SATA but since it's modular I assume I can buy another 6-pin to 4x SATA cable? It comes with a 2x SATA and a 4x SATA cable (then of course Molex). But if I can connect a second 6-pin to 4x SATA directly to the PSU that would be ideal? Less points of failure? I'm just not seeing an OEM one sold, just cheap sketchy looking ones that usually reference Corsair or Seasonic. And for the 3.3v pin issue I would just go the tape over the pin route? Edit: I got rid of my Molex to SATA cable from my case. I just found out about the lovely phrase "molex to sata, lose your data". Maybe the molex to sata cable on my drive bay was messing with the drives. All my drives are now on one SATA cable which for 2 SSD and 5 HDD I can't imagine is great long term. I do have a SATA to 4x SATA extension to do so but at least no Molex. I'm checking xfs_repair and short SMART test on all my drives real quick, then I will do a parity check with "write corrections to parity" checked. I'll still more than likely replace the PSU anyway with that Fractal one I linked just in case. I emailed Fractal to ask if they sell OEM 6-pin to 4x SATA that way I don't need any extensions for my drives. I'll also get Kapton tape for my 3.3v issue rather than doing cable mods. I figured to soften the blow of a new PSU I should just return my replacement HDD, since I don't need the space by any means, and just wait for the RMA on disk 1 to go through while my server stays off. Although it's sounding like I might possibly need to RMA disk 2 because it had 3305 read errors? Or is it possible disk 2 is okay? Assuming the parity check I'm about to do goes through fine.
  23. I'll wait for someone's response, but as an aside I'm thinking I should replace disk 2. Disk 1 is already dead and the files are gone as far as I'm concerned. I know I can dig through the lost+found but we're talking like 10k+ files. My important stuff on my server is backed up. What I lost is media project assets and media files that I can easily redownload or had no emotional attachment to. It'd be a big inconvenience but I wouldn't lose sleep. Same if I lost disk 2, although disk 2 had double the data on it so it would be an even bigger inconvenience.
  24. My server's really gone to shit (partially my fault) if you've seen my thread 1 and thread 2. I keep thinking my issues are over but new things keep coming up. The summary is disk 1 had a file system that kept corrupting when new data was added and I heard a mechanical chirping coming from what I was pretty sure was that disk. I started a replacement with a new disk I bought but the new disk was unmountable and I messed up thinking I should format it. I put the old disk 1 back and attempted to save my data but ended up with more xfs file system corruption that ended up being fixed but my entire disk 1 in the lost+found. Part of that attempt was a New Config so I had to let parity rebuild while the xfs_repair was happening (they ran at the same time, xfs_repair finishing first, not sure if related). Last night parity finished rebuilding. All my disks mountable and parity is valid. It was late so I figured I'd just replace disk 1 in the morning. This morning I woke up to another parity sync having been triggered at midnight (since it's the first of the month) and disk 2 having 3305 read errors. Plus more mechanical chirping sounds. Parity sync started slowing down with a 5 day ETA so I ended up just stopping it. As it stands now I have: disk 1: WD120EDAZ. Purchased in the last month. Entire disk in lost+found, chirps, seems to run just fine but the file system keeps corrupting itself (although always fixable). disk 2: WD120EMFZ. Purchased in the last 5 months. Suddenly 3305 read errors. new disk outside my array: WD120EDAZ. Fingers crossed it's good. What should I do? Which disk should I replace? I started an RMA for disk 1 and I don't think I can afford to drop money on another new disk. I think if anything I need to wait for my replacement disk from Western Digital before I can RMA a second disk. The only other disks in my array are two 4TB drives. Is there any chance this is just some weird bad data error from a file system repair on the >4TB section of parity? Comparing a bad disk to a good disk? Or the xfs_repair running during a parity rebuild? What are the odds these two issues aren't related? That two disks break at nearly the same time? For reference these are Western Digital EasyStore 12TB's I purchased from Best Buy and shucked. Parity and the new disk are also that. The other two disks are WD 4TB Red. Any chance this is a PSU or cabling issue? EVGA N1 400W PSU and I have a Molex to SATA adapter going to these drives specifically. Attached diagnostics. Any help is massively appreciated. apollo-diagnostics-20210301-0723.zip
