  2. Running Win 10 VM with nvme, 32gb ram, threadripper 3960x (12 cores for gaming) in latency dependent online games and getting BM latency (24 ms to game server) with consistent 120 hz gsync. I was getting 200+ fps prior to turning on gsync (now 120 fps synced with ultra wide monitor at set refresh). Have my cpus pinned and even with 20 docker containers (on the other 12 cores and 32 gb ram) running radarr/sonarr/readarr/lidarr/emby & plex while running parity check I don't have any slowdowns. Took awhile to get there though.
  3. During an LFTP parallel download (14 file segments) from a remote server to NAS cache drive, I am exhibiting odd network spikes where the transfer speed drops to nothing for up to a couple of seconds and happens fairly regularly throughout the download. The full download happens without errors to the file (that I'm aware of). I'm assuming this is the result of some sort of odd network setup? Any help troubleshooting would be appreciated. diagnostics-20200511-2112.zip
  4. I thought even with PCIe x1 you could still get decent speeds depending on the protocol? Onboard controller must be running outdated protocols? Either way, I appreciate the help. I ended up going with a Art of Server 9340-8i card and I am having no TRIM issues, even after popping in another SSD and going to a cache pool. Unfortunate, but the 9305-16i is over twice as much as this 9340-8i and didn't support TRIM natively.
  5. Thank you, I assumed as much. Next build will be all SSD! Much appreciated for the link and suggestion. Art of Server came through and the LSI 9340-8i is working as described. Same benchmarks as the 9305-16i and just did a couple of test TRIM without error after adding in another 860 pro for a cache pool! I wish it had a couple of more ports but I'll worry about expansion later. Can't complain at half the price and it actually works. Thanks again! The compatibility wiki really should be updated to inform which boards do not support TRIM.
  6. Hey all, I apologize as I can only assume my question has been answered somewhere in the previous 241 pages! But I am looking to see if I can use the Deluge docker as a thin client (GTK UI) to attach to my remote FeralHosting (seedbox) deluge daemon. Basically I would like my Radarr/Sonarr dockers to drop their .torrent files directly to the thinclient folder and then have that upload via the ssh tunnel to the seedbox. I have done some extensive GoogleFu and searched through the forums and haven't seen a solution. I've also looked at: https://dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/UserGuide/ThinClient and I'm not seeing where the switch from Classic mode is. Was this feature disabled or rolled into a different option? Appreciate it. **EDIT** So my Seedbox is on Deluge v1 and obviously the dockers are v2, assuming this is the issue and why it won't even highlight connect via the connection manager? Anyone have any issues upgrading from v1 to v2? I'll have to see if it's supported on my Seedbox if this is the issue.
  7. Well, after moving the cable to the onboard AMD controller, success. At least now I know the drive isn't bad. And speeds look to be back up to where they were with the LSI controller. Not quite sure what the issue was with the onboard Asmedia controller, but maybe I have a hidden BIOS setting that needs tweaking.. or that particular port was bad.. I have an LSI SAS9340-8i on the way that reportedly does not have SSD TRIM issues like I am experiencing with the 9305-16i. I guess I'll find out on Sat.
  8. Reportedly they do. https://blog.insanegenius.com/2020/01/10/unraid-repeat-parity-errors-on-reboot/ Got new SSD errors upon TRIM this morning, going to try another cable and try the other onboard SATA controller and see if that improves speeds and resolves these.
  9. Interesting, I think that's good enough of an endorsement for me. Grabbing one from Art on Ebay. Backplane may be a bit much for me, only running 6 drives right now, but room to grow I guess. Appreciate the help!
  10. I have an LSI 9305-16i SAS card and have nothing but issues when my Samsung 860 Pro undergoes TRIM. I read your post, I did not get it from The Art of Server, but the comparative card (the 9305-24i) works OOB according to unRAID comparability list. Shortly after the TRIM is complete (within ~10m) several errors occur such as below with the SSD drive (formatted as XFS, but BTRFS denotes the docker/vm fs). So are you saying that this card should work without issue? I have seen other posts discussing these LSI cards and Samsung drives (including the PRO). I have not had any issues with the SSD today since moving it to the mobo controller (as apparently is the default suggestion). The speeds from controller card (green) vs onboard (blue) do not get anywhere close, so I'd rather go with the controller card. What do you suggest? Buy a card from Art of Server flashed to IT mode? I have SAS 8643 cables laying around and it only looks like he has 3 compatible cards. I really just want the best card I can get and to be able to plug it in and have it work.
  11. Looking for an SSD compatible with my LSI SAS 9305-24i. I have seen dozens of responses that the Samsung PRO/EVO line of SSDs does not support this and is therefor incompatible with these controllers, but I haven't seen a recommendation. Does anyone have a list of drives that would work? I'd rather not downgrade my controller and get new cables, etc if I can just get a new drive instead. Do the Samsung Enterprise SSDs support this? I didn't see anything specific in the specs referring to this.
  12. Guess I didn't do enough research in this area, really did not see that there would be a big issue with a controller handling an SSD in 2020!! So, rather than getting the 9305-24i, I've been reading that an enterprise level SSD may support DRAT/RZAT and work fine with the controller? Anyone have recommendations of something I can go with to replace the 860 PRO?
  13. So this looks like it is a TRIM issue as I have that set to run daily at 5A and it just goes haywire with the system. I was browsing the web and came across another post of yours @johnnie.black from a year ago. So the issue is that there appears to be only one specific subset of cards with a downgraded flash that supports TRIM. I wouldn't have too much of an issue (aside from spending $400 on a controller card that can't properly handle an SSD....) if the speeds on the MOBO controller were near that of the controller card. What a shame..
  14. So if this was your PC it wouldn't concern you at all that the controller was throwing those kind of errors with an SSD? To the point that it may happen with the array drives as well? FWIW, I haven't seen any errors with the onboard controller and this SSD as of today.... I thought this LSI Logic Controller Card 9305-16i was listed on the unRAID compatible list, but apparently I was mistaken.... Looks like I will have to order in an LSI SAS 9305-24i and see if I get the same issues...
  15. Morning all, I get seemingly random print_req_error: I/O errors (which then causes odd docker/vm/share corruptions/issues) when the array has been on for several hours, usually at idle. Things I have tried: Swap controller cards from 9207-8i to 9305-16i Changed the SAS/SATA cable to SSD (it is on a separate cable and port from the array drives) Changed SAS controller port for SSD Cleaned SAS controller card and cable connection points Rebuilt (new docker and vm image files) and reformatted SSD Swapped SSD to previously disabled mobo SATA controller (just trying this as of right now, so system hasn't been on long enough to see errors yet) Unfortunately, onboard Asmedia SATA controller has massive speed degradation (blue line vs green/black lines in image below) compared to controller card. Booted to bare metal Win10 and attempted to run Samsung Magician (will not load, continues to say "Scanning for HDD"") Updated BIOS Been hammering away at this one for awhile. The SSD is new, I have a hard time believing it is at fault, especially since these errors reference apparently random and different sectors. The goal was to just have the SAS controller handle all of the drives and leave the mobo controllers disabled. I did not anticipate the speed drop from the controller card. Any suggestions here on where to go next? Diagnostics attached. Appreciate any and all help gents! diagnostics-20200505-0803.zip
  16. Also came with these warnings after;
  17. Anyone have some direction as to how I can find out more about this error and help correct it? From what I've researched it means the kernel doesn't fully support some hardware component, but which? It only happens during boot (the posted burst all happens in 1s) and doesn't repeat, so I'm not all that worried. Just looking to see if someone has more info or an idea of where else to look. Thanks
  18. Thank you for this excellent plugin.. wish I would've seen this before I started messing around with my VMs!
  19. Any idea if this is likely to be resolved if 6.9.0 if it includes the 5.6 kernel? They don't directly address it but mention something about managed interrupts. Is CPUAffinity a thing in unRAID? This thread talks about it and sounds like it would be a better solution vs isolcpu.
  20. I assume the performance you were looking at was just with 3D Mark and not real world? Do you know if the caching issue was bug reported? Lastly, didn't see that you pinned the emulator off the VM (I know you were passing the majority of your cores), but FWIW my network latency at least dropped by 50% with it on. <emulatorpin cpuset='0,24'/> Here are my CPU-z's BM | VM (6 cores). Overclocking (as you can see to 4125 MHz) VM 3D Mark for me is ~75% of BM, so will still need some work. I'm not sure what unRAID version improvements have come out since you last checked, but sounds like 6.9 may have the new 5.6 kernel which apparently has a massive number of changes. I'm going to see if I can coax SI1 to help me out directly, but let me know if you want to tag team some of these performance tweaks to see if we can get something a bit more optimal.
  21. Any further testing @SweetPeachez? I also have a 3960x and would like to see what if any other changes you've implemented and see how things have been performing with your rig the past few months. Thanks!
  22. You're able to max out download speeds and it is pretty responsive on the watch folders? Looks like it is $60, most of the reviews are outdated or not applicable, but would be worth it if I can find a more easily manageable solution.
  23. Hey all, Anyone have any suggestions to maximize download speeds from an out of country seedbox to a U.S. based NAS? I have previously used lftp due to its segmented/parallel downloads, but this is cumbersome to setup and maintain. I have seen Syncthing and other alternatives, but have heard complaints of speed and I'd like to max out my gigabit connection when I am downloading. I'm looking for a watch folder on the NAS to be synced to the seedbox and then the download folder on the seedbox to be synced to the NAS. Ideally, with the file being removed from the source after sync. Any ideas? Is lftp still the best option? Thanks in advance.
  24. Hey all, I have 2 Seagate Exos 16 TB drives coming in to replace my parity and the 2TB disk shown in my array below. What is the best way to go about this? I see the https://wiki.unraid.net/The_parity_swap_procedure but want to make sure I'm not missing anything. Is everyone doing extensive tests on their drive before adding? I've seen preclear and smart testing prior to use. Thank you!
  25. 2 years is a lifetime in computer terms. Also, what you're referring to was 4 years ago (2015)... His most recent was 7 VM in 1 and that was 3 years ago (2016). He's done a multi-VR solution now. I don't think what I'm looking for is too crazy. I'm just looking for a couple of decent gaming units, 1 OK gaming unit, and a place for my Unraid to sit in and process my media server off of. I think the challenge is kind of fun, I'm out of my element, but I enjoy pushing myself and learning a bit.
