  1. 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/
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  10. 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....
  11. Have you checked out binhex-minidlna? It's simple to set up and works great for me. It's in Community Applications.
  12. My syslog is overflowing with the same btrfs error since upgrading to rc7a also. Very much looking forward to the fix.
  13. This is almost working for me now. It turns out the Pictures folder is mounted read-only, so that's why I couldn't upload new photos or make new albums. I copied some pictures there manually, but photoshow won't show any thumbnails. All I see are broken link boxes. It will show the full image if I click the eye in the expanded image view though. When I go into the settings and tell photoshow to regenerate thumbs and images, my browser loads a blank page and nothing happens. Any thoughts? This seems similar to the problems Phlii was having.
  14. I recompiled p910nd under unRAID 6.1 and added it as an attachment to my original post in this thread: http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=2888.msg64225#msg64225 I tested it and it works fine for me with unRAID 6.1.
  15. I upgraded one of my computers to Windows 10 on 7/3 with all the latest updates and now I'm seeing these entries in my unRAID 6.0.1 log too.: Jul 6 10:37:52 Tower avahi-daemon[3446]: Invalid response packet from host There are tons of them. It would be nice if it would only log the error once....
