  1. iSCSI is the real answer here, but unfortunately not natively supported but may be once multi pool & arrays are implemented.
  2. 1. I've never had gaming impact my Emby or Kodi viewing. 2. Alternative is to isolate share disks of media and games so you steam library doesn't overlap with media disks 3.dependant on the games, some just aren't that intensive... For this that are you might consider moving installs to local drive... I often use steams interface to migrate between two library locations, which for me is 1 local SSD and 2 array share symlinked to a local folder ( added as steam library location )
  3. Having run the remount command last week, the last 5 days has seen the daily data units write average drop further to 155,949. Good result for now.
  4. FYI, you can squeeze another 2 drives (total of 6) on the microserver with a custom bios and using the CD-ROM drive sata port and esata port. Note: you'll be stretching the friendship with the stock PSU
  5. Average is still pretty consistent with this. I've run the remount command now, after 30 min the only noticeable writes are from a test media file (4.5GB), which increased writes only by the same amount. Loop is only sitting at 160MB, pretty good as I have a dozen or so very active dockers. I'll continue collecting data points for the next few days to see how it goes.
  6. Seeing as there are updates happening to the USB Flash Creator I thought I'd throw some suggestions out there that I think would be particularly helpful to users that are green to Unraid. exFAT support: it's released to open source now, soon to part of the kernel purported to be optimizations for flash improved file integrity? checksumming of metadata larger flash drives supported like FAT/FAT32, it is well supported - crossplatform Preloaded configuration (streamlined plugins): default configurations Light (no configured plugins) Standard (essential/suggested plugin - CA etc) Full Fat (such as enabled baked in GPU drivers) additionally, selectable packages in particular essential plugins like CA, wireguard, FCE, UD etc (Restore) new flash from Unraid backup Easy restore from flash drive corruption with messing around with extracting zipped folders etc Easier roll backs where not possible through Unraid itself Could include option to request usb key migration (to current, new key)
  7. Ignore the not configured and follow the rest of the instructions, it looks like he a previously configured connection whereas yours is fresh, thus 'not configured'. It looks like you skipped setting the IPv4 address assignment to static and therefore had also not set an IP. Do this, then watch over this section of the video again and it should make sense this time.
  8. As posted in the other thread, this worked for me... start with BSD template and then follow the thread linked.
  9. XFS isn't a supported backend for Docker, overlay2 seems to be the other usual choice.
  10. Haven't tried that yet, want to collect a few more days worth of data before changing anything else.
  11. My usage was 5TB over 20 days (BTRFS RAID0 cache on 6.8.3). After moving docker.img to array and back again, my daily writes in the last 7 days has dropped from an average of 0.25TB to 0.14TB (daily data units from 442,229 to 254,563). A near 50% write reduction.
  12. Never say never. After multi-pool/cache, this is my personal most wanted feature

  14. Wasn't that long ago that a bug in emby was nuking some users media libraries. I believe the same solution that was an inspiration for your script was used to help protect users media libraries at the time, until the bug was resolved.
  15. Thats really why docker and plugins are a great system, they do get updated on a frequent basis, and really that is what needs those updates.
