  1. Has been a while and I still want to make use of this for my VM's. Please Unraid devs - you will make this old bloke very happy!!
  2. I would still like to see Bcache included as a kernel module: This is extremely useful for people that use unnasigned devices and can also be implemented with LVM. It has been considered stable and has been included within the Linux kernel source for a long time. In Unraid kernel .config # CONFIG_BCACHE is not set I struggle to recompile the unraid Linux kernel and would simply like to see this as a kernel module to make things easier (obviously the tools need not be included as not all users would ev
  3. root@Tower:~# virsh dommemstat 15 error: Failed to get memory statistics for domain 15 error: internal error: failed to parse JSON 1:63: too big integer near '18446744073709551615' I am posting this so anyone running into this same issue while using virsh commands can see the reason for the error. Once the error occurs, starting, stopping and managing virtual machines using virsh can break (even when using the Web GUI). Further information can be found here:
  4. I second this! I use nginx a lot and this docker is pretty awesome (thank you), but I don't just use nginx as a reverse proxy... Yes I could use another docker for nextcloud, however this docker is small and practically complete (I can completely go nuts with what I want to do when I want). I am unsure of what PHP modules are installed within but it would be total goodness not having to do: docker exec -it letsencrypt apk --no-cache add php7-xmlreader As well as other PHP mod extensions that a lot of PHP web apps would commonly use Keep up the good work!
  5. I am also experiencing the same issue with a Windows 10 pro vm, audio seems to get ahead of the video and stutters with an occasional sound artifact. This is the same for all browsers and media players... hardly noticeable when watching a short vid but anything over 5 mins and the sync falls completely off. Shutting down the Windows vm and starting a Linux (Ubuntu and Mint) that is set with the same memory and CPU pinning has no problems at all (I currently shut down my Windows vm and boot my Ubuntu one when I want to watch Youtube or Plex but it is not the perfect solution). #
  6. This could take a while... but maybe it will give some ideas... To start, pre-clear the drive you were going to use as parity (this is a good practice because if it was once was an external drive - any bad sectors will be remapped). Next... (For best results - stop your unRAID array) Basically, swap the drives over... the larger one will be used as parity (currently part of the unRAID array ) Partition and format the cleaned drive with xfs. mount the existing 6GB drive with all your data mount the newly cleaned drive. rsync all the data off the old drive to the newly prepared d
  7. My solution to this (I also hate Windows but have 2 gaming VM's) is to use LVM which LimeTech have kindly included for a while now. An example: Set an unassigned drive as a LVM physical Volume and create a volume group. Create a logical volume to host Windows (I also have a 2nd logical volume for SteamApps - although not all games are happy to sit outside their designated locations). Periodically cron a job to make a snapshot of the logical volumes... There are then several things you can do from this point (and all will work while the VM is running)... 1: Full image backup to unRA
  8. Ever since my early days using virtualization (KVM and Xen), I have always used LVM to provide virtual disks and it was with great joy (and ultimately caused me to purchase unRAID) to see the LVM module included into the unRAID Linux kernel. After various tests and wanting to increase performance, I started experimenting with SSD caching and so tested LVM caching as well as bcache by recompiling the kernel. LVM caching works well and although I have never benchmarked my different configurations, here are the reasons I went against it. [*]It was difficult to find and install the
  9. Nice, It would be easier if the bcache module was included in the kernel compile too (for crazy ppl like myself to play with) Yes, I will try that... I can live without /mnt/cache being included in /mnt/user (and not included in /mnt/user0), but was curious how it worked... I will try it and report back any findings
  10. Hi all, I am currently testing my setup, I have as follows: unRAID: 1 x 2TB Parity Device 3 x 1TB Array Disks Cache: 1 x 120 GB SSD Unassigned Devices: 1 x 2TB HDD So far I have been figuring out my way around, I am not used to slackware or the inner most workings of unRAID but have had plenty of experience in Gentoo, Debian and Ubuntu in the past so will not shy away from things that are too technical. Basically I only use my unRAID cache device for appdata, domains and system folders - only using the Cache Disk and not the unRAID array. So here goes
  11. I apologise if this is posted in the wrong place but felt the need to share with others my unRAID trial setup. Ever since the early days of virtualization, I have always wanted to give my virtual machines their own dedicated GPU's but have always been held back by budget and digging around to find out tried and tested components (the money aspect becomes more of a problem when you are a stay at home dad with a very limited income). As an avid long time Linux user with 8 of those years where my primary computing was on an Ubuntu Desktop, my Windows usage was practically non existent;
