  1. Thanks so much for this! I'm still a little hesitant about going full CLI, since I'll need to sit for a few hours at a go to experiment. Some questions during installation of the app: 1) Plot path - During the add-container settings page, there seems to be only 1 folder selection for the plots. Are there eventually more disk destination options via plotman (for a whole bunch of unassigned devices)? - I'm still wondering if I should place my plots in the protected array... Technically, plots aren't precious data (we can simply re-plot), so, unassigned devices s
  2. Pointing to Machinaris's docker - for GUI users like myself who are a little lazy at the moment to experiment with CLI (command line interface)
  3. Ah, so it is possible to have an amazing plotting speed (high terabytes per day) simply by using a whole bunch of cheap HDDs in parallel! (assuming a CPU with enough grunt)
  4. Thanks! I'm glad there's now a Chia docker and healthy discourse at the Partition Pixel thread. Oh gosh, SSD and HDD supplies will be so reckd these 2 years
  5. I currently only have a few plots on the unraid array. It keeps that disk continously spun up - which I'm not exactly excited about; I'll definitely have some drives dedicated to Chia plots, or keep chia plots off the array. The other concern is whether having Chia plots on the unraid Array causes timeouts. Chia requires the plots/proofs (sorry - i haven't gotten my terms correctly yet) to be verified within SECONDS, and there has been news that NAS storage was causing verifications to timeout.
  6. Regarding #2, Have you tried creating a 2nd cache pool for Chia purposes? I wonder if a non-redundant pool makes for faster plotting speeds (or allow for more parallel plotting)
  7. Gonna be exploring Chia farming, of which I believe interested unraid-dabbling folks are extremely primed to be exploring! Several thoughts: 1) Storage (Farm) Locations: Should the Chia farm plots be stored on the unraid array, or should they be on unassigned devices? Benefits of being on unassigned devices - Reduce spin-up and wear on the array drives - These farm plots aren't exactly critical data - if the drives are lost, just build those plots again Edit - Specific Chia-only shares can be set to include specific disks, and exclude non-desired dri
  8. JorgeB, Tigerherz, Thanks so much! It took me a while to figure out what it meant by "unassign all cache devices", since yesterday I was panicking and it was just a few hours before I had to take an examination 😆 It works now! I tried those steps - array down, disable dockers. But i had to make sure to unassign all cache devices. I forgot exactly what happened, but after unassigning the remaining cache drive, the pool disappeared. I added a new pool, re-assigned the 2 drives, ensured that there was no "All existing data on this device will be OVERWRITTEN when array
  9. 1) Share was suddenly inaccessible - i/o error encountered while transferring files over 2) Rebooted the system, and the entire cache pool and both its droves seems unaccessible 3) Rebooted again, 1 cache drive seems connected to the pool (but Unmountable: Too many missing/misplaced devices), and the other cache drive is now in "unassigned devices" - I've try remounting the unassigned drive as read only - the files and any freshly transferred files (just before the error) seems to be intact. - I have yet to physically touch the system - no adjustment of cables, etc t
  10. Just made an order for this sweet baby! It'll be in stock some time next week: https://www.amazon.com/QNAP-QSW-1105-5T-5-Port-Unmanaged-2-5GbE/dp/B08F9ZL9LY/ Strange, that I can't seem to find much mention of this switch in this forum. Anyway, my fibre ISP not 2.5gbe, but at least I'll finally break that 113MB/s barrier between my PC and the unRaid system. This availability comes at a perfect time - I'm in the process of switching out my 6+ year old Quad-Core intel system to an AMD one; my ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X just arrived! Though I'm a little w
  11. I didn't put much effort into trying, and sold the Prolink UPS to a friend within a month, and have been using APC since. It's been 5 years, so I'm not sure if there's any advances made on the Prolink side of things...
  12. The 2 HPE Samsung SM863 SSDs running as a RAID 1 cache pool on my Unraid. Works perfectly so far, though temps are wrongly reported, around 12 to 15 degrees reported too low - which according to some reddit threads, can be a common issue for certain enterprise drives not being used in environments they were customized for. Still, cheaper than a QVO, but faster, more reliable, and endurance of, what, 15x more? (though I'll probably never even reach 10% of the endurance before it's time to change them again) Anyway, sharing the good deal!
  13. I bought mine here. https://www.ebay.com/itm/113767323096 Reviews of this seller looks good (at least not much issues). The seller also sells the 5100 Max (among other server SSDs like the Intel DC 3520), I wonder if they are the same merchant as GoHardDrive. Bought 4 units including 2 for my friends. They arrived in a proper 5-unit carton packaging, and serial numbers are very close to each other. Anti static wrap looks great, SSDs look brand new as far as I can recall, and maybe I should take a look at any traces of usage on the connector pins on that last unit when my
  14. Don't mean to necro this thread, but some really good deals for HPE (HP Enterprise) drives - similar to your Intel D3-4510 SSDs available here at a steal. (actually, better performance, for the Samsungs) These enterprise drives have crazy endurance (e.g. the Micron 5100 Max is even more over-provisioned than the 5100 Pro you were looking at). Posted these on the Good Deals forum. Micron 5100 Max 1.92TB - Around $200 to $220 https://www.amazon.com/HP-Micron-2-5-inch-Internal-MTFDDAK1T9TCC-1AR1ZABHA/dp/B07R3BYPM6/ 17.6PB (17,600 TBW)
  15. 2 really great enterprise grade SSDs going at what I'd feel is a steal. Both appear to be HPE (HP Enterprise) branded SSDs. They each have a ridonculous 2-digit Petabye endurance! For comparison, at time of writing, a 2TB Samsung 860 Pro and a 860 EVO goes at $477 and $297 respectively. (Endurance 2400TBW and 1200TBW) Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to find side-by-side reviews and benchmark comparisons of these type drives against consumer SATA drives, but they are certainly more than capable (especially the Samsung) for read-intensive server/enterpr
