  1. 03:00.0 SATA controller [0106]: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE9230 PCIe SATA 6Gb/s Controller [1b4b:9230] (rev 11) Subsystem: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE9230 PCIe SATA 6Gb/s Controller [1b4b:9230] Kernel driver in use: ahci Kernel modules: ahci This is likely your problem. See here:
  2. It might be worth reading the man page for atop since you installed it without really knowing what it does. The same goes for a number of the Nerd Tools - don't install everything. You need to be selective and only enable packages that you really need.
  3. Do you have the Dynamix Schedules plugin installed? If you do you can reset the schedules by going to Settings -> Scheduler and scrolling down to the Fixed Schedules section. Have you tried rebooting? That might fix it as the crontabs are, I believe, re-created when you boot. You might want to run a disk check on your USB boot device on a separate PC (shut down Unraid before unplugging it) in case it has become corrupt.
  4. I just use the real cores now that I have them. I only used the emulated ones when I was using low core count processors and never expected bare metal-like performance. So my "optimisation" was to switch to using real cores. I don't see any downside to doing that - they're still available for other uses when the VM in question isn't running. I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve as you say you've deliberately not told the whole story but you could try comparing the output of cat /proc/cpuinfo for the real and emulated cores to see what's missing from the latter. According to CPU-Z running on a Windows 7 VM my system is emulating an AMD K6 but with 64-bit instructions. As common denominators go that seems fairly low and I don't think there's anything that can be done to optimise for it as the real cores are much more capable:
  5. You probably need to read up on what features the QEMU emulated processor offers. It will be some subset of your Threadripper's native capabilities so, yes, I wouldn't be surprised to find it less capable at (video) encoding.
  6. It's impossible to say without your diagnostics. Tools -> Diagnostics and post the complete zip file.
  7. I can't answer your specific question as I don't sleep my servers. However, version 6.1.9 is long out of date. The current version of Unraid is 6.7.0. You might want to consider upgrading, if only for the security updates.
  8. Does pressing a key on the keyboard restore the video? I would begin troubleshooting by directly connecting the keyboard and monitor to a single server to eliminate any peculiarities of the KVM switch.

    NFS rule

    I use this rule for my private shares. It works for me but YMMV: *(sec=sys,rw,insecure,anongid=100,anonuid=1000,all_squash)
  10. It just had to be something like that. Changing the behaviour of grep itself would result in untold chaos. Glad you sorted it. Sanity restored!
  11. It's an unusually long name. Can't you simply edit it to make it shorter? "HomeBridge-GUI" would surely fit.
  12. Copy the whole config folder and use it to replace the default one written by the USB Creator tool.
  13. To hide them completely you have to tell Windows not to display them. See the table below: Samba hide Samba show Windows hide Invisible Invisible Windows show Greyed out Visible I still maintain that I'm fundamentally opposed to the idea of configuring a file server to refuse to store certain files. It's much better to configure Macintosh clients not to create the annoying files on shared network storage in the first place. See here, for example: https://www.tekrevue.com/tip/stop-ds-store-files-mac-network/ defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores -bool TRUE
  14. That's true and if you're living in isolation it does't really matter if you don't upgrade. But the reality is that it's a big bad world out there that has become bigger and badder since that previous release was new. But you're not living in isolation because you posted here, which means you're connected, which means you're vulnerable. You may not need the new features but you certainly need the security updates.
  15. How are you seeing these slow read speeds? Is it within the server or across the network? Your diagnostics (Tools -> Dagnostics) would help eliminate such things as failing hard disks, faulty SATA cables, misconfigurations, etc. Post the complete zip if you want someone to take a look. What kinds of things have you tried?
