  1. Yeah, you definitely need to leave at least core 0 open asking with some ram for unraid to use. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. So you're assigning all cores and all of your memory to the VMs? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Not attempting to necro but is there a list of nvme drives that are safe to use? My 660p seems to be a dud.
  4. Sorry for the long delay between replies, life got busy. I've added the bit you suggested into the xml and before that I had added the other 2 cores in the second numa node to my vm totaling 12 logical cores now. It relieved most of the bottleneck but I'm still getting about 20 worse performance than previously. I haven't quite figured out how to boot from nvme in a vm. I tried reading up on it but I'm a bit lost. Would I be better off just converting my nvme to a virtio img to boot off of and then pass through the nvme drive for game/program storage? Here's an updated copy of my vm xml. The only other change I've made is to add a usb 3.0 card. <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm' id='3'> <name>WyonBox</name> <uuid>089090d5-b998-0420-3ffe-3350a310c7e3</uuid>

  5. I've been using Nvidia's driver. I know better than to use the one Windows provides. The background processes I was referring to were within the VM. I now have all 6 cores of the second die stubbed and pinned to the VM leaving the first die for unraid to use. I'm gonna wait to pass through the nvme controller as everything seems to be working well now Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. Did you check your iommu groups? Could be the pcie slots you're wanting to use go through the chipset and are in the same group. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. I'll try switching to scsi once I get home this evening. Should changing the drive type not help would I be able to pass through the nvme controller like you mentioned without reinstalling Windows? Also, something else that came to mind is that the first 2 cores on the die I'm using are assigned to Plex. Would splitting the die like that give me issue? My games drive is just sitting on the array but it's more just steam library storage than anything. Since steam introduced the option to move games from place to place whenever I decide to play something else I just move it to my nvme drive. I'm playing ffxiv right now though so I don't play much else. EDIT: The SCSI setting seemed to help some. I'm still dipping down to the 40s but that's still a gain over the low 20s. The discard='unmap' setting seemed to disable my gpu drivers the first time I booted after adding that. Windows eventually found my nvidia drivers but it took a few minutes. EDIT2: After adding a couple more cores to my vm I have excellent fps now. I think I was bottlenecked due to background processes eating up my resources.

  11. I have the last 4 cores isolated due to them being on the same die as the pci express slot as my gpu. I may be wrong but I was under the impression that crossing dies would add latency. Is that incorrect?
  12. A little late but here's the diags TEAM_T253TD001T_AD20190528A0100210-20190721-2155 cache (sdi).txt
  13. So I recently upgraded my server to a x399 with a 2920x and decided to just switch to a windows 10 vm as a daily driver and later sell off my desktop. At first everything seemed to run great but recently my vm has started slowing to the point that I'm running a 22fps in my favorite game. I've stubbed 4 physical cores (8,20,9,21,10,22,11,23) for my vm and passed through my gtx 1080ti and an nvme drive. PCI 10de:1b06 is the 1080ti btw. I have an rx470 in the primary slot for unraid to use and maybe for future vm use. The only thing I can thing of that might be the issue is that I have the nvme drive just passed through using /dev/nvme0n1 rather than stubbing it, but I don't see how that would make a difference. Is there anything that I'm overlooking or is this just what I can expect from gaming on my vm? Let me know if there's anymore info that might help.
  14. Ok I had no idea what a decent threshold would be. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
