  1. I had the same problem with slowness writing big files after a while. It's usually something to do with vm.dirty_ratio & vm.dirty_background_ratio. You can adjust these with the Tips And Tweaks community application. The percentage ratio depends on how much RAM you have and your use cases. Here's an explainer for what these do: https://lonesysadmin.net/2013/12/22/better-linux-disk-caching-performance-vm-dirty_ratio/
  2. Mine gives the same 1006 error. Thanks for letting us know the UnraidServerName version of the URL works. I was able to get it in that way.
  3. Upgraded from beta30. Saw missing temps on some drives once the array came up, but doing a manual spin up restored all temps and they've worked correctly since. No issues with spinups/spindowns across three controllers and 15 drives, and no issues with my dockers or my VMs. Everything is working great. Thank you Unraid team and the community for all your work!
  4. I idle at 65 watts, but that's with two drives always spun up, a parity drive and a torrent/download drive, and 13 more on standby. I also have two drive controllers, a Dell Perc H310 and a Supermicro AOC-SASLP-MV8. Each of these draws around 10 watts on its own I've noticed. System specs: M/B: ASRockRack E3C246D4U CPU: Intel® Xeon® E-2288G CPU @ 3.70GHz Memory: 32 GiB DDR4 Single-bit ECC
  5. Those two parameters have some complicated interactions depending on the amount of memory you have. It may take some experimenting to figure out what works best for your environment. This is an older post I found, but it has good background information that may help you fine-tune things: https://lonesysadmin.net/2013/12/22/better-linux-disk-caching-performance-vm-dirty_ratio/
  6. I had similar problems. I downloaded the Tips and Tweaks community application and adjusted these settings: Disk Cache 'vm.dirty_background_ratio' (%): 1 (Default 10) Disk Cache 'vm.dirty_ratio' (%): 3 (Default 20) I have 32 GB RAM, and I found the defaults would excessively cache and then try to dump way too much data at once on large copies. With these settings the reads and writes are much more steady, though you will probably see more frequent disk activity. Read the help items for these parameters in Tips and Tweaks for more info.
  7. If it won't boot with one stick, try pulling the battery for 5 min so the CMOS can clear and try it with one stick again. After I got it to boot, I went into the CMOS and flashed the BIOS that allows hardware transcoding. After that I didn't have problems, other than having to flash the BMC separately so sensors would work.
  8. As I recall I had this problem too. I got past it by using only one stick of RAM, and then once it posted successfully I spent some time figuring out which pair of slots worked correctly. Board has been rock-solid ever since.
  9. Anybody else seeing this in their log output every 30 minutes? This started happening a few days ago. 2020-05-17 09:37:28,402 DEBG 'watchdog-script' stdout output: [warn] Incoming port site 'https://portchecker.co/check' failed to web scrape, marking as failed
  10. I stopped Docker and copied my docker.img file to a non-SSD array drive that was always spun up anyways. In Docker settings I pointed it to the new location and started Docker. All my containers started up normally and everything is working fine. Prior to doing this I was averaging over 1 GB/hr on loop2. I'm down to 140 MB/hr now. We'll see if that lower number stays down. Update: Almost 24 hours later I'm still running 140ish MB/hr.
  11. Kapton tape is ideal for this type of thing. This 1 mm tape from Amazon covers the drive's connector pins perfectly. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ROKY68
  12. I have a Norco 4220 case with a Noctua NH-D9L on my E-2288G, 110 mm height (fits in a 3U chassis). Even running all-core BOINC I haven't seen it go over 82C (ambient temp of around 65F). My system with all-core BOINC, all cores 100%, and two drives spun up is drawing 204 watts, according to my UPS. I'm really pleased with it and it was the easiest heatsink install I've done to date. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QCEWTAW

    The default template I pulled from CA had /dev/dri twice. I changed it to /dev/dri and it still didn't launch. Showing advanced settings displayed the USER_ID variable, which had no value. I added 0 and everything started working. Thanks for the container! It was interesting spying on my Plex hw transcodes.
  14. I too am part of the ebay ASRockRack E3C246D4U club, thanks to Hoopster! I remember someone posting that they had to reflash the motherboard BMC because when they installed it the BMC button on the back got stuck behind the backplate and that cleared the BMC flash. Well, the same thing happened to me, and now my BIOS BMC flash is failing self-test and I can't control fan speeds. I can't find the original post about this, but does anyone have the E3C246D4U BMC flash files/utility? I submitted a support request on the ASRockRack web site, but no response yet....
  15. Have you checked out binhex-minidlna? It's simple to set up and works great for me. It's in Community Applications.
