  1. Hi JorgeB i tried virtio and this did increase the speed a little, with windows explorer now showing around 300mb/s. however, this is still at least half the speed I’d expect given the hardware in use? I also noted that task manager was showing roughly 2.5gbps network usage, so it was better than the previous 1.5tbps but nothing like what I’d expect? am I better using a physical 10gbps connection out of unRaid and back into the VM, via a 10gbps switch, using a dual port 10gbps NIC, with only one port shared with the VM? I don’t understa
  2. Hi JorgeB virtio-net at the moment cheers
  3. Thanks Vr2lo Ive tried your suggestion and it didn’t seem to improve at all? Very frustrating. I wonder if anyone else has seen this issue?
  4. Hi, sorry for the delay in coming back. I’m changed the RSS queue to 2 but this didn’t improve throughput? Not sure if i also need to touch receive side scaling (enabled at moment) or TSO (maximal at moment) any suggestions? Max throughput I’ve seen so far is 200mb/s and this is nvme to nvme
  5. Thanks for coming back Vr2Io, could you elaborate a little please? I have logical 32 cores in my server and have 16 provisioned to the VM and 16 for unRaid. can you give a little more detail of the settings you changed please. thanks
  6. Hi My unRaid server doubles as a workstation (bare metal workstation which sometimes gets booted as a VM within unRaid) and has a number of NVME drives in it for use on both sides (3x 1tb Samsung 970 pro for bare-metal workstation, 4x 1tb Adata sx8200 pro in btrfs raid 0 for use as the cache drive in unRaid). My intention is that I backup my UHD bluRays on the bare metal machine, then copy them across to unRaid once it’s running (via the VM). However, I’m not seeing the copy speeds I’d expect (only about 150mb/s)? I have the unRaid share set to use the cache and everythin
  7. Hi Bit of an odd question but here goes. I have a high-end UHD player (Panasonic UD-UB9000) that can play discs but also does an amazing job with movie and music files over the network. Its only drawback is its horrendous interface (no poster wall etc.) for browsing and playing media from storage (unRaid in my case). However, what it can do is act as a UPNP renderer, so I believe it can have media sent or 'pushed' to it and it will play that media (as opposed to browsing for the media from the device's own interface and pulling it from the server).
  8. That looks excellent steini84, exactly what i was looking for (hopefully others too). thanks for taking the time to put it together.
  9. That sounds great steini84, appreciate it and will look forward to it.
  10. Ok, so I’ve been reading like crazy about zfs and I’ve been creating, destroying and recreating zpools to try to understand how it all works. However, like many, I’m not quite piecing it all together. I’ve can create a zpool (say zfspool), I can see what drives it uses and that it’s status is all good. I can set the mountpoint to say /mnt/zfs (which I’m afraid is confusing me a little) but then I run out of steam. Basically all I want to use it for it to group 4 devices into effectively a raid-set and use it for a VM (if I learn more about zfs then I might be brave enou
  11. Brilliant, I certainly will, look forward to giving this a try, and seeing what kind of performance I can get out of those NVMEs!
  12. Excellent, thanks steini84, I didn’t realise that had been implemented yet. I had read about it being available in some implementations, but didn’t for a second think it’d be the one I actually wanted to use! So with auto trim, is it ‘set and forget’? No periodic commands etc?
  13. Apologies if this is covered elsewhere, but if I wanted to use this to create a 4x NVME vdev with 1 disk parity (like a raid 5), how would I deal with TRIM and would this become an issue?
  14. Thanks for the great feedback guys, really appreciate you taking the time to comment. It's good to hear that I don't need UEFI boot to run UEFI on the VM so that will hopefully fix one problem. I may also give BTRFS a try (although ZFS is still temping). Either way, the idea would be to regularly snapshot the VM to array storage. I'd love to pass through the NVMEs to the VM for 'bare metal' performance, but I understand the type of drive that I have has issues with hardware passthrough on unraid, which is a shame. As for the workload, I'm a developer that al
  15. My ultimate intention was to maintain the ability to configure AMD raid volumes in BIOS, with a future view on supporting those volumes in a Windows VM. To access the AMD RaidXpert settings you have to have UEFI enabled. However, the specific NVME drives that I'm using (I've since found) have an issue passing their controllers through to VMs in unRaid, so this may render that approach impossible anyway. I have another post where I'm looking at the best alternatives that I might use in UnRaid, which (if something is recommended that gives me acceptable performance from the NVME driv
