  1. Hmm interesting. Thanks for the info guys. So, that means, if i want to get 4k transcoding to be done in my plex docker, i need to upgrade to like a 7th/8th gen intel CPU/mobo (since GPUs arnt supported)? If i were to upgrade, does it matter what the CPU is, can i just upgrade to a cheap 8th gen i3 like the i3 8100? would that be enough? I guess my alternative is to run the plex server in a windows VM, thats probably a good option. Is there any instructions on how to pass through the GPU to my windows VM? Has anyone done this successfully?
  2. Hey Guys, Im trying to get some step by step instructions about how to actually install a GPU on my unraid server and get plex server (running as a docker on unraid) to use that GPU to do transcoding. My unraid server runs on a i7 4770 cpu which isnt enough for 4k h265 transcoding, so i just installed a GTX 970 (might move to a 1030 or 1050 later) on the box. Although the hardware is installed, im not sure how to: 1. Check if the GPU is correctly installed (that OS/Unraid can actually see it)? 2. How to get my plex docker (linuxserver/plex) to actually make use of this GPU. Ive seen couple of threads about this, but the instructions wernt too clear for me (im a noob at these things). Can someone give me some instructions if they can? would be greatly appreciated I tried to follow this: On this step modprobe i915 chmod -R 777 /dev/dri I got the following error: chmod: cannot access '/dev/dri ': No such file or directory There were couple of other threads about editing syslinux.cfg and "go" file, but i have no idea where they are, how to edit them, and what to edit them to. So im pretty stuck Any help appreciated. PS: im running unraid 6.6.5
  3. ah, fail. i thought it used to auto update OS =/ ah well, time to update
  4. my unraid is set to auto update but currently at v6.4.1. i dont see this option. i assume its not currently on the main releases.
  5. I know you guys keep suggesting that this is a user/config error time and time again. but after a year or so of struggling with this, my issue turned out to be jackett. i dont really know much about docker, and no one really gave me any good way to calculate disk usage per container, so i just deleted one container after another (order of least important). my docker size was going up by about 2-3%/day, so i would delete one container each day to see when the increase stopped. turned out that the culprit for me was jackett. it was likely saving logs or something somewhere it shouldnt have as it was configured correctly. As i mentioned, ive been struggling with this for a long time, ive made sure that every configurable setting in every container was configured correctly. something else you can try is, earlier in this thread, someone answered my question about ssh-ing into docker. If you have time to try it, you could try ssh, then use some disk/folder usage command to narrow down exactly which folder/files might be the cause, then submit a bug report to them. hope this helps.
  6. The culprit is Radarr. As @John_Msuggested, i ended up turning off some containers that i didnt use too much. The % stopped going up. And i narrowed down the problem to Radarr. Soo... How that i know the culprit container, how do i actually go about fixing it? I spent a lot of time making sure all the setting are correct to the best of my ability. I suspect the storage usage i comes from a non configurable path. Any suggestions?
  7. Yeah ive thought about that. Thus the reason why i asked if anyone know a way for me to check/monitor the docker container space usage. I still dont really have an answer to that Sure, as you mentioned, i can turn off some of the containers and see if that would stop the usage creeping up, but the culprit is something im likely heavily use/rely on (heck, i only have 8 containers running, and its likely the top 4 on the list i posted). Ill leave the turning off thing as a last resort, and am hoping that unraid/lime-tech or atleast someone who is familiar with docker to give me some sort of proper way to debug this. 89%
  8. Hey Mate, Thanks for the link. I did have a look in there and made sure the basic things like that log file limit etc are set. But i dont see anything in the faq about a way to find which image uses up how much space or anything along those lines. So i still have no way of knowing what image is the culprit, and how to go about fixing it. As i mentioned earlier, my settings/configs should be correct, as i have been using these for years without much issue. The issue is likely coming from a recent update for one of these images, that is likely saving some files in a location it shouldnt be. I just have no way to actually find this out? FYI: im at 87% now and have no idea what to do
  9. Hey All, Ive been using unraid with docker apps for years (im still a noob though). Recently (since about few weeks ago) ive been noticing that my docker disk utilization is slowly going up (im not installing anything, and all the apps are set to write to a different drive, as mentioned, ive been using this without much issues for years). Aaanyway, ive been getting warning emails saying "Docker image disk utilization X%" where X is now at about 85, and growing a slowly (1-2% every day). So, between July 9th and July 21st, it went from <70% to 95%, then i deleted lot of apps that i dont use very much to get it down well below 70%. Then between August 17th to today (25th) it went from 70% to 85%. This means clearly one of the dockers are doing something strange (something it shouldnt), and possibly writing logs to the docker image or something. So, my question is, how on earth do i find out who the culprit is so i can look further into dealing with it and/or coming up with a solution? FYI, here is a list of 8 apps im actually running: plex: linuxserver/plex radarr: linuxserver/radarr sabnzbd: linuxserver/sabnzbd Sonarr: linuxserver/sonarr deluge: linuxserver/deluge DuckDNS: coppit/duckdns jackett-public: dreamcat4/jackett cadvisor: google/cadvisor My current allocated space for docker is 20gb. Any help appreciated :)
  10. Sweet, i was actually doing just that right after i posted. When i goto add and select the template, it gets populated with all the existing data. So yup, that solved the problem... i think. All is working for now. i think... Thanks heaps for the advice
  11. Ah i see, that sucks. Yeah i just removed Advanced Buttons. I just saw the thread discussing this and made a quick post asking if there is any solution: So, essentially i have to start from scratch with the dockers that i lost? If anyone has any ideas of getting them up and running again, let me know.
  12. I had Advanced Buttons installed and tried to updated couple of dockers, and these dockers have disappeared from the docker menu/list (this issue was covered in the first page of this thread). I have since uninstalled Advanced Buttons. But, is there any way to get those dockers up and running again, or are they good as gone?
  13. Also note, my other dockers are running just fine, its only when i update them that they disappear. Im using a plugin to update dockers (Advanced Buttons, just adds extra buttons), and i saw a glance of "No such file or directory" error at the end of the update, here is some of my logs from the last 30 mins or so. I think its that "The command failed" line, what is that all about?

  14. I just did an update on my SABnzbd docker on unraid, and the docker disappeared from my dockers list (i also did the Radarr docker update as well, and that also disappeared). Can anyone give me any advice on this so i can debug? So essentially just 15 mins ago, i clicked the docker to update on SABnzbd. Once the update is finished, the docker no longer is on my dockers list (online or offline). I was going to post in the docker support for linuxserver SABnzbd page, but to make sure its the docker issue, i did an update for Radarr docker as well, and that also disappeared, wtf. I dont know what to do now I also did a server restart too, no change. Also to clarify, these dockers arnt running, the urls i use to access Radarr and SABnzbd are not responding. Unraid 6.4.1.
  15. Hey, thanks so much for the advice. I tried plex addon on kodi, and all works perfectly fine. when i messed around with direct play on plex app, it was hit and miss. with kodi, so far, 100% success (and is perfect). I will bring my queries to the plex forums. Only downside with kodi is the UI is not as good (and i dont see any options like automatic subtitles for things like anime). But maybe ill get used to it, who knows. Thanks again
