  1. agreed. I'll give that a shot next time I can and let you know how it goes Agreed, but it wasn't like that until I prevented the disks from sleeping; but like you said, it could be a combo of things. TM backups are typically 7G+ and I don't have a clue why... wasn't like that on my old Mac when I had TM as a local drive. I haven't used TM in awhile stuff was moved around which could perhaps explain this 40G session, but the large backups in general are a mystery. I'll dig around and see what I can find. But it may, along with the other issues, requi
  2. So, the backup box is back up. The 10Gbe cards I just installed don't seem to be making much of a difference, but perhaps it's just my perception. fwiw, I'm not using the cache drive or SSD for TM it's the only thing using the backup unit for now. (Results from the command are attached) 8.21 MB/s is terrible!! I have no idea what's going on. I stand by my original observation: SMB transfers are much faster after unchecking "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" in the Energy Saver settings than it used to be; but it seems I should be getting faster R/W speeds with the new 10GBe NI
  3. So far so good for several months now. I like the idea of establishing a baseline so we all know. Unfortunately, that command doesn't seem to be working. Could it be because the backup box turned off in order to do a HW upgrade? If that is the case, I'll let you know after I get it up and running and try the command again. fwiw, Production Box: A DnD transfer of a 9.6GB file from the Mac to the cache pool now takes about 2mins when it used to take hours (I should note, I've just upgraded to 10GBe, but haven't seen any noticeable imp
  4. Hi. Unfortunately, it's a bit overkill for what I need. I run the backup box headless; so it's just for getting past POST/Bootup, and the occasional use of the localhost gui. Thanks for your suggestion though.
  5. Hi unRaiders, does anyone have an ancient VGA PCI or PCI-e x1 graphics card they no longer need? My backup unit's x4/8/16 slots are in use and the only port options I have left so I can add a monitor are either PCI or PCI-E x1. Many thanks!! Ps. I'm in the US.
  6. Interesting... I had the same problem.. seems the culprit was the NVIDA driver plugin that I had installed awhile back. Deleted that and now it's back.... hope this helps someone else.

  8. Hope someone will help you find an answer to your question 1. How did you change 2 & 3? I didn't think it could be done. Thanks.
  9. FWIW, I had horrible SMB unRaid R/W speeds with my Mac workstations including Time Machine backups until I did this one weird trick... 🤣 ok, now that you fell for the click bait... after trying the various suggestions from others (I.e. turn off SMB signing, turn Case sensitivity on, forcing the min/max protocol to SMB2, etc.) nothing seemed to consistently work. However, someone suggested on the Mac unchecking "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" in the Energy Saver settings and then reboot. It seems to have 'fixed' the issue for me. Haven't had R/W problems
  10. you bet... here's a dark mode" version; it has the same issues as the first one, but I hope you enjoy
  11. gotcha... sorry for the unnecessary post then. I looked around and didn't see anything directly addressing the 2nd part. my bad for not doing enough dd. Nevertheless, thanks for the clarification.
  12. After update to 6.9.0, unRaid states all drives have returned to normal utilization after update, even though they're full. Once all messages were cleared (1 for each drive) a view of the main page shows the correct usages and color (red) of each drive. However, the dashboard displays the correct usage, but the indicators are all in green. This has happened on both my production and backup boxes. Main Page Dashboard
  13. It's far from perfect, but here's a 'quick n dirty' one I did for you. I might get around to fixing it at some point.
  14. I did a quick search and couldn't find this banner, so I thought I'd make one. It's still Christmas, right?
