  1. I was on the brink of updating once, just couldn't do it. 5 minutes down time and 4 mouse clicks is just taking the piss.
  2. @trurl Sorry not much detail in my swift answer, I should have said if you add the second drive to the same share and it is set to 'high water' if one drive is empty and the other is only 50% full it will start filling the empty drive. I know unRAID doesn't specifically spread the load between drives but it will fill them relatively evenly if you are using all your drives across a share and have it set to high water.
  3. You can do it this way. There is an element of risk involved, but if you don't currently have the data backed up or parity protected then you are already at risk of data loss so it is more than likely an acceptable level of risk at this point. I would suggest not completely filling your 8TB drive on unraid, maybe move some to your other drive first so that when you add the other drive to the array unRAID will balance the load across the drives for you. Also the answer is yes to all your other questions. SMB/NFS/AFP/FTP are all supported by unRAID, with the above mentioned setup you will be protected from a single drive failure. Also Plex can be run in a docker container on unRAID itself.
  4. @SiNtEnEl Yes you are correct it is mostly cached rather than utilised in fairness, I installed the cAdvisor plugin to get a closer look as to what was going on. In conclusion I think my utilisation of the server has increased and I'm popping another 4GB in today to see if it gives me enough headroom. Failing that I still have expansion for another 4GB... failing that it's new server time!! It is getting a bit long in the tooth.
  5. @french_guy I use the linuxserver docker and it has been pretty reliable for me. I also have an LG 4K TV, if you are running on LG webos 3.5 or above the Plex software is now well featured and I can direct play everything from my server so you should not need to transcode on your Athlon meaning you should be able to use Plex ok with your current hardware.
  6. @tucansam I have just had a little trawl of the support form to see if anyone was complaining of RAM usage. My lowly little server only has 8gb of ECC RAM but this has always been ample until about the last month and I seem to be constantly running at 90%+ capacity. I've started limiting the amount of RAM my dockers use but the two things I don't limit is unRAID itself (because you can't) and my Plex docker as that is the primary use of the server. I am using the Linuxserver.IO docker template for Plex and I am noticing that if I restart the docker it looks like that is responsible for at least 25% of the RAM utilisation. So I'm not sure if it is a change within this docker or unRAID itself causing the additional RAM usage. Are you using the Plex docker?
  7. @squirrellydw I to would like to edit my Chromecast profile but it does not appear where expected when I'm looking on other forum resources (not specifically for unraid docker) It is quoted as being at this location > plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Profiles However the profiles folder does not exist in my cache/appdata location for Plex? Can anyone advise if the docker stores these profiles elsewhere?
  8. Thanks Squid, although I have just tried again. Could have been a random blip? Seems to be working now. Everything was working my end at the time as I updated 5 other plugins at the same time. Just tried again now and it worked straight away. Odd...
  9. @Squid I am having some issues if I try to update the plugin, also tried removing and installing from scratch but get the following error: plugin: downloading: https://raw.github.com/Squidly271/community.applications/master/archive/community.applications-2017.02.25.txz ... failed (Invalid URL / Server error response)plugin: wget: https://raw.github.com/Squidly271/community.applications/master/archive/community.applications-2017.02.25.txz download failure (Invalid URL / Server error response)
  10. Thanks gfjardim, as I say I don't think this plugin or anything on unRAID itself is to blame. Just doing a bit of due diligence. I'm not concerned about the email account just more concerned of a 'key logger' or some other such bit of nastiness poaching my passwords for things that could cost me money!
  11. @gfjardim could you explain what the Statistics plugin does please and does it have a separate support page? Is this part of the preclear plugin? I'm not suggesting this is the cause but I have recently had a security breach with the email account I use to send reports out of unRAID and I'm just looking into each new or updated item that I have changed in the past week. This just happens to be one of them! Thanks in advance.
  12. Thanks Lionelhutz, does the BTRFS scrub work with a single drive / image though? Can it repair errors in the file system? I appreciate you don't have fault tolerance with one drive but surely it can repair errors in the file system?
  13. Hello everyone and Merry Christmas! I'm having an issue that is infrequent but quite annoying. I have my docker image (10gb) on my cache drive which is an Intel 530 120gb. I don't actually use my cache drive as a cache it is actually my application drive really. Now every now and then my docker image becomes corrupted. I know when it happens because either my dockers start acting up or they just won't start with no apparent errors in the logs. If I stop docker and then run a BTRFS scrub on the image I will find errors that it says it is unable to repair. Then I have to go through the process to delete the image and re-install the dockers. OK this takes like 5 minutes but I'd like to get to the bottom of how this is occurring. Does the BTRFS scrub work if you only have one drive? Do you require two drives for fault tolerance?
  14. Thanks RobJ just digesting this information now! Time for a little bit of fettling and a new plugin to play with by the looks of things!
  15. RobJ, I feel like this is something that limetech thought about then changed their mind. Because in the disk settings page you have the setting 'Tunable (md_write_method):' Now this has three settings: Auto - read/modify/write (default) - reconstruct write (turbo). Now to my mind this would make sense if 'Auto' meant standard write if array was spun down and you just wrote a random file to a disk. Then to basically enable turbo write you could click the already existing button to spin up all disks. Then if all disks were already spinning then unRAID would switch intelligently to turbo write. Because Turbo write is great I'm playing with it now. It's doubling my write speed which is great for my machine backups, etc but probably overkill if i'm copying an MP3 over! I actually thought that's what auto meant on that setting until I clicked the help button!
