    [Plugin] Linuxserver.io - Unraid Nvidia

    ok, just updated my unraid, now i'm on 6.6.6. installed a plugin, clicked on "Linux nvidia drivers" link, and it took me to this page: https://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-amd64-display-archive.html i selected a newest driver version, it list almost all available Nvidia cards. but still no info about particular card support for NVENC.. you should look rather in this? https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-decode-gpu-support-matrix for example, GT1030 wont support NVENC, but supports NVDEC. do we nee both?

    [Plugin] Linuxserver.io - Unraid Nvidia

    sorry, both my unraid's are below version 6.6.6, so can't install a plugin.. would you mind to share the link? i tried this already - there are bunch of threads on plex forums with very similar questions without no direct answers.. if you have particular link, feel free to share

    [Plugin] Linuxserver.io - Unraid Nvidia

    Yes, but if you have not Nvidia for now, and just thinking of buying some?

    [Plugin] Linuxserver.io - Unraid Nvidia

    i'm wondering what would be a sweet spot a Nvidia card to use only for this trancoding process. Nvidia Quadro P400 maybe?

    Horrendously slow write speeds

    glad to see you sorted it out at least you know, your unraid disk is just fine

    Horrendously slow write speeds

    you are only copying 1GB of data, it's too small amount. try again with bs=10G for example.. and "of" is not your disk share, it's on RAM now. try for exampel on disk1: of=/mnt/disk1/test1.img so the whole command on disk1 is as follows: dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/disk1/test1.img bs=10G count=1 oflag=dsync

    yes, but this plugin tests only read speeds..

    Horrendously slow write speeds

    if you have no parity, then write to disk share.. i suggest you to do some write speed test on your unraid vm with dd command. see here for examples: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-linux-unix-test-disk-performance-with-dd-command/

    glad to see that sorted it

    Newbie to Unraid - Can't see disks

    you should add PCI device and choose LSI2008.

    and from your unraid VM settings too

    @syee please then post screenshot from ESXi pass-trough page..

    Newbie to Unraid - Can't see disks

    as i see on mobo pics, are there 3 SAS connectors? if so, then i think there are two controllers.. i did a little google on mobo specs, and did not found any information about.

    Newbie to Unraid - Can't see disks

    are you passed through the right controller? your syslog shows: Feb 4 18:48:07 STINKYNAS kernel: ioc0: LSISAS1068 B0: Capabilities={Initiator} Feb 4 18:48:07 STINKYNAS kernel: scsi host33: ioc0: LSISAS1068 B0, FwRev=01032920h, Ports=1, MaxQ=128, IRQ=18 and if you passtrough correct controller, then are your SAS 2008 controller flashed to IT mode?

    Looking for good xeon cpu & motherboard

    cos i'm not running unraid bare-metal, i can't suggest you a combo that will work with your video(?) card.. i'm running Supermirco X9 board with dual E5-2670 v1, 64GB ram - see my sig for more details. i have two unRaid VMs, some Windows VMs, some Linux VMs, all is running without a hitch.. i have a plex server on one of my unraid VMs, but i'm avoiding transcoding cos it will just hart my CPUs..

    Looking for good xeon cpu & motherboard

    you will run plex - do you need any transcoding? there are many topics about this problem on the forums..

    Looking for good xeon cpu & motherboard

    i can recommend this seller from ebay, bought some server stuff from him, all working without a problems.. and it's from Latvia, so no problems with long time shipping. https://www.ebay.ie/sch/marrtins/m.html?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEFSXS%3AMESOI&_trksid=p2053788.m1543.l2654

    Do you mind used stuff or new only? and what VMs/other stuff are you planning?

    How do you guys work with more than 24 drives?

    Yes, each unraid VM is responsible for their own disks with parity. and with that many disks, i would export user shares to main array. if you have say 24 drives, it's a big hassle to operate with them as 24 disk shares - just group your disks with user shares according on data usage - you can start with one/two disks for each user share and add more disks later if you need space for that share. according USB and licence - you need separate unraid licence for each VM + one for host. but see here for complete tutorial:

    How do you guys work with more than 24 drives?

    no, you don't need two physical servers. look at my example - i have one physical 24 bay server with VMWare ESXi as host OS. then i have two unraid server VMs in it. both are running just fine - i simple pass-through one HBA controller to each VM. and then i can organize all access to data through one VM, if i want. you can run similar setup with unraid as host OS, and then add more unraid VMs as needed. your idea with second case and power board in it works very well, @johnnie.black have very similar setup. in this case you probably have more than one HBA in your setup and with proper pass-through you can organize your all server resources to run two or more unraids. But again, i agree, it will require some manual steps to be performed

    How do you guys work with more than 24 drives?

    you can try setup multiple arrays right now(install second/third.. as VM on main array), and then organize all access to data through your main array. you can mount second array to main a with unassigned devices plugin via NFS for example, and then share it if you want.. OK, at now this requires a lot of manual work, but who knows will be this multiple array feature in unraid or not..

    [PLUGIN] Disk Location

    sorry have not tried jet. as i wrote, i can use your plugin with very success, if i can manually enter information about drives that is used for other esxi VMs - then i would have one place to store information on all drives in server.

    Notes about Supermicro X11SCA-F

    i will add my two cents too i have an older SM X8 board with older quadro in it, and i'm experienced a very similar problem - if i choose quadro as my primary video in bios, then no remote console - just a blank screen. then i choose BMC integrated video as primary in BIOS and started experiment. first i installed Ubuntu desktop, and with all latest Nvidia drivers i cant use quadro as main video - simple blank screen. next, i installed a fresh Windows 10, with all latest Nvidia drivers i can successfully use quadro as primary video, and have access to remote console via integrated BMC. so, looks like it's an old SM problem, and i'm not sure, even if you ever have a nvidia drivers in unraid, will quadro work correctly? looks like a proven variant with VM for transcoding is a way to go..
