  1. Interesting. Is there a bug that I can follow to keep updated on this ? I was under the impression that file transfers were using RAM first to speed things up. Seems like I was wrong
  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I just did, and it more than doubled the speed. This is to a user share This is to a disk share: Why is it so different? What can I do to improve user share writes/read? I've tried enabling Direct I/O but it didn't help, still around 300 MB/s for the same operation to a user share
  3. Hello people of the internets, I'm trying to fix a "slow" file transfer issue between my PC and my Unraid server. I have installed 10 GBps NICs in my computer and server (HP NC552SFP in Unraid, Intel X520-DA2 in PC), but I can barely reach 300 MB/s when writing to the Unraid server and between 200 and 400 when reading from the server. Isn't the server supposed to write to RAM then cache to make it fast ? The PC has a WD Black NVME SSD, and the server is a R520 with dual Xeon 2430L, 32 GB ECC 1333mhz, HP 500GB SATA SSD connected to the PERC H710p Mini (converted to IT mode / LSI 2308-2 controller). I did run Iperf3 tests between the PC and the server, and I'm getting ±9.2/9.4 Gbps of throughput so the network doesn't seem to be the issue. This was tested using the following command : iperf3 -c <machine> -P 5 -t 10 -b 10G From Unraid to Windows [SUM] 0.00-10.00 sec 10.7 GBytes 9.22 Gbits/sec 0 sender [SUM] 0.00-10.00 sec 10.7 GBytes 9.21 Gbits/sec receiver From Windows to Unraid [SUM] 0.00-10.00 sec 11.0 GBytes 9.42 Gbits/sec sender [SUM] 0.00-10.04 sec 11.0 GBytes 9.38 Gbits/sec receiver I am taker for any advice/suggestion !
  4. I have simply downloaded "Adaptec Storage Manager v7.31.18856 for 64-bit Linux" from here https://storage.microsemi.com/en-us/speed/raid/storage_manager/asm_linux_x64_v7_31_18856_tgz.php Inside you'll find arcconf, just chmod +x and you're ready to go
  5. Good idea, because here I am today, looking again for how to do this because I want to upgrade my cache disk! lol ** These steps are for my Adaptec 51245 controller ** Step 1: arcconf getconfig 1 This prints a list of all drives connected to controller #1 Step 2: find your new drive in the list, it will most likely be the only one that doesn't say "JBOD" next to its state. Note the "Reported Channel,Device(T:L)" (example : 0,11 this is channel 0, device 11) Step 3 : create a JBOD drive out of the new drive : arcconf CREATE 1 JBOD 0 11 (still using the example from above). This create a JBOD drive, on controller 1, channel 0, drive 11) Step 4 : you should now see the new drive in your MAIN section of Unraid. If you dont, stop the array and it should be in the list. ============ Here's my controller configuration if that can help. You can find that with "arcconf getconfig 1 ad" Controllers found: 1 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Controller information ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Controller Status : Optimal Channel description : SAS/SATA Controller Model : Adaptec 51245 Controller Serial Number : 1D4211CB859 Temperature : 82 C/ 179 F (Normal) Installed memory : 512 MB Copyback : Disabled Background consistency check : Disabled Automatic Failover : Disabled Global task priority : High Performance Mode : Default/Dynamic Stayawake period : Disabled Spinup limit internal drives : 0 Spinup limit external drives : 0 Defunct disk drive count : 0 Logical devices/Failed/Degraded : 0/0/0 SSDs assigned to MaxCache pool : 0 Maximum SSDs allowed in MaxCache pool : 8 MaxCache Read Cache Pool Size : 0.000 GB MaxCache flush and fetch rate : 0 MaxCache Read, Write Balance Factor : 3,1 NCQ status : Enabled Statistics data collection mode : Enabled -------------------------------------------------------- Controller Version Information -------------------------------------------------------- BIOS : 5.2-0 (18948) Firmware : 5.2-0 (18948) Driver : 1.2-1 (50983) Boot Flash : 5.2-0 (18948) -------------------------------------------------------- Controller Battery Information -------------------------------------------------------- Status : Not Installed Also interesting information: if you want to be able to view the SMART data from the Unraid devices pages, you need to set the "SMART Controller Type" to "SAT" with nothing in the 2 fields on the same row as SAT.
  6. I am using the drives as JBOD. You need to tell the controller that the disks are JBOD using the controller's software at boot time, or through arcconf. It works very well still. Currently upsizing a drive as we speak I keep the drives always spinning, less stop and start means less possible failure. The chassis is well cooled so heat is no issue
  7. How can I change that specific disk’s treshold? I haven’t found the option in the menus
  8. Hi! Is there any way to disable the low disk space notifications/warning for a specific disk? One of them is running using Unassigned Devices and is used as a Time Machine backup system which deletes data as needed to free up space. I always receive warnings about this disk because it is between 90 and 99% Thank you
  9. The settings were done in the GUI, and have stayed over the updates. It's just that when the docker is restarted they are not applied until I login to the GUI. I can I assign channels to my torrents in the config? This seems like a strange way to set this
  10. I think my post slipped and was not read, but again this morning I woke up to a non-functionnal internet connectivity because my torrents were completely filling up my upload. As soon as I opened rtorrent evereything went back to normal as the upload slowly slowed down to the channel's limit. Is there some kind of workaround for this?
  11. Hi, Is it possible that the channels (manual speed limits) are applied only after a GUI login? My auto updates are set to daily at 4am and every morning that there was an update, the current upload speed on my seeds is not respecting the channel's limit and is actually filling up my entire internet connection upload. After logging into the GUI, the upload speed slowly drops to the maximum that is set for the channel.
  12. I guess I'll just live with it for now then. Thanks!

  14. Oooh i had missed the first sentence. "method attempts to step fill each disk so at the end of each step there is an equal free space left on each disk."
