  1. Go to your bios.. look for power supply idle. You will want to set it to "normal idle power". See what happens
  2. Yeah I'm excited for the improved monitoring for temps and stuff.
  3. It did really help with my ftp transfers. Program no longer locks up. Do you believe it will eventually be able to run with hard links enabled or is that kind of up in the air at this time? Also sorry for not completely reading the thread before responding.
  4. There are certain versions you will need to roll back to and there is actually a specialized kernel as well. But hopefully limetech will release 6.9rc1 and it will also do this..
  5. I see nothing on the "OP"s post or profile that says any of this.
  6. So everything is set to stock? No DOCP no memory set higher than 2133 or whatever "base" your board is any of that? (Just confirming)
  7. We found yesterday there are some issues with the 3rd gen ryzen and caching. There isn't a way to fix it 100%. Technically your cache should be fixed with the below but doubt it will.. If it works you should see a boost in performance but there is a fix needed for virtio/qemu <cpu mode='host-passthrough' check='none'> <topology sockets='1' cores='8' threads='2'/> <cache mode='passthrough'/> <feature policy='require' name='topoext'/> <feature policy='disable' name='monitor'/> <feature policy='require' name='hypervisor'/> <feature policy='disable' name='svm'/> <feature policy='disable' name='x2apic'/> </cpu>
  8. almost sounds like you have a memory problem. If it was caused by the idle stuff you'd have it freeze on you instead. Are you overclocked on anything CPU/Memory?
  9. I experience this as well. When I'm doing SFTPs to these folders it can cause my whole vm to lag in an attempt to list the folders. It can take a few seconds to bring up all the folders but honestly I have the folders as condensed as I can without plex hating me.
  10. Hmm that is very interesting.. Your the first person to have a 3960 here I believe. At least that I've seen talk about it. As to your question I would say yes but I got a feeling your going to get slapped with performance hitching. My test game for this is "Dying Light" as it has a very good multicore implementation. The Good news though is you won't have to wait long as AMD is basically the performance crown in almost all types I figure they will start really ramping up fixes/patches in QEMU/VirtIO. I'll say though it took nearly a year for the 2990wx to start "running well" compared to baremetal sadly. It would seem they are rolling fixes to GA faster via QEMU/VirtIO so hopefully they will be picked up by limetech as quick as well.(generally they are as limetech seems to always deliver 😃 ) Any ways if you have dying light try playing it and see if you notice any hitching or frame drops. Don't play with gsync on btw. At least last time that was discussed it caused a lot of fun issues itself. You might also want to check what your DCP latency is along with what kind of memory performance your getting inside your VM with AIDA. If your latency is very high on your L1-L3 you maybe in for a ride. I get very close to bare metal on all performance metrics that I test but it was a long time of tuning. You can also check out reddit's virtio subreddit.(guess you have been but sometimes the threadripper convos get buried sadly) They don't have a lot of threadripper convos but there have been some from time to time that are very helpful.

  11. Does appear that because you have the newer arch it isn't doing the caching properly. On the 2990wx I have(and my old 1700) it was basically a requirement. What you could "technically" do is try the old way we fixed it before they fixed it on QEMU. Adjust cores below to match whatever your doing. It will be half of whatever you have assigned.. This will pass it as an "EPYC" processor. See if CPUZ sees your cache the same as your baremetal with this. If not you may have to wait till they resolve the issue. <cpu mode='custom' match='exact' check='full'> <model fallback='forbid'>EPYC</model> <topology sockets='1' cores='22' threads='2'/> <feature policy='require' name='topoext'/> <feature policy='disable' name='monitor'/> <feature policy='require' name='hypervisor'/> <feature policy='disable' name='svm'/> <feature policy='disable' name='x2apic'/> </cpu> Cache matching with settings. If your cache doesn't match you'll get hitching and stuff due to cache hit misses. It is ESPECIALLY important for L1 and L2 but also important for L3 given how much cache the 3960 has. 2990wx Baremetal CPUZ 2990wx VM CPUZ
  12. Could be that his cores are mismatched. It happened in earlier versions of the 2990wx bios where the cores shown were not the matching physical/hyper threaded. When your making an XML file your basically telling the machine what the host looks like. I remember some people had to manually assign even the cores in the right order. It's just a thought.
  13. This is core pining for the CPU on that particular VM. You need to go to Settings, CPU Pinning and at the bottom "Core isolation" to isolate the cores from the rest of the system so it cannot use it.
  14. Which part? The CPU thing is basically required for better performance/feel of the machine. The stock system doesn't detect cache right and so your VM will be running with all sorts of wonky cache. It also doesn't detect hyper threading right. Keep in mind that these settings can revert everytime you change something in the gui side instead of the XML side. The timer stuff is to lower CPU usage at idle and a slight increase in performance. CPU pinning is required to make sure Unraid doesn't use those cores and dockers don't either so you need to make that you did that. Lastly you have a 3970 so at least you don't have to deal with all the NUMA tuning crap like me with a 2990wx and others on the board. Though we've basically got that down to a science now as well.
