    NVME passthrough works with issues

    I also have APST errors. when I remove that line unraid add its again. was that really the reason ? are your APST errors gone and what drive are you using ? mine is Samsung 970 EVO..
  2. @gridrunner First of all thanks for your great videos. Learing a ton from them. update 3 - 07.08.18 : trashed the VM and wrote the PT in the syslinux, rebooted unraid. Installed a new Win 10 VM and partitioned the whole nvme for his installation. no virtio driver installed except netkvm to have internet. the nvme shows now full speed in CDM with 3.5/2.4. Good but odd. Will check into this some more at the weekend.... update 2 - 06.08.18 : my setup is 970 evo m2. on asus hyper-x x16 pcie nvme adapter card. as far as i can see in runs with full 4 lanes (lspci output). so there shouldnt be the issue ?! #update 1 - 06.08.16 : via CLI command " hdparm -Tt --direct /dev/nvme0n1 on unraid I aloso only get /dev/nvme0n1: Timing O_DIRECT cached reads: 4490 MB in 2.00 seconds = 2245.59 MB/sec Timing O_DIRECT disk reads: 7764 MB in 3.00 seconds = 2587.55 MB/sec original post: I have a question; I got a fresh Win 10 install on passed through Samsung NVMe. below my XML Its a 970 Evo and my ChrystalDiskMark is givin me this ( see end of the post) .

    Windows 10 1803 GPU Passthrough not working

    just two ideas. try it with the gpu as secondary and vnc primary and then see if you get the hardware drivers installed. then stop the vm , switch the gpu as primary and restart. another idea would be to make sure to hide the hypervisor in the xml settings and start the vm with gpu passthrough without a bios file....

    unRAID OS version 6.5.2 available

    upgraded yesterday. no issues so far. thank you limetech!

    Encrypted volumes

    here too. so far no issues using vc volumes on the array and accessing them from a vm or over other pc in the network. i believe i noticed sometimes it would mount the container before the drive spun up. am i going insane ?
  6. considering this a buy too. I guess as long as your mainboard support PCIe bifurcation (check your bios) it will work and split the lanes up. on top of that individual iommu groups would be great. tell me more about it ! not many reports out there....btw anybody with supermicro 2xnvme >pcie adapter experience here ?

    Windows 10 VM CPU Usage

    here too. constantly seeing approx ~25-35% load on each of the 4 assigned vcores that power my win10 1803 vm. cpu is a e5-1650v3; cpu governor set on 'power save'
  8. sometimes when a docker has handled / created files the permissions get changed . Have a look and check in the unraid tools tav the new permissions / docker safe permissions options. when you decide to use these be careful not to apply it to your appdate folders !

    Best bang for the buck (Intel Xeon)

    I got a E5-1650v3 for 190 € ( I believe it was a bargain :) substituting a E5-1620v4 because it has 2 more physical cores. but the v4 Win 10 VMs felt more snappy. I wonder if its the vt-d optimizations ? @HellDiverUK which 10 cores are you refering too / what price ? TIA

    Unusual VM setup proposal and questions.

    why do you need a windows host if a unraid win vm can give you 98% bare metal perf. ? whats the purpose of the project ? just wondering

    Unusual VM setup proposal and questions.

    "pass the client window to one of my Windows 10 VMs" what I believe actually happens with looking glas is that it runs on the host (linux(maybe also unraid) and then the client VM output (with almost no latency) is passed (via direct framebuffer read out) to a window on the host

    Unusual VM setup proposal and questions.

    maybe "Looking Glass" * is the solution you are looking for ? afaiu it will give you bare metal GPU performance and still allows you to have a windowed vm *An extremely low latency KVMFR (KVM FrameRelay) implementation for guests with VGA PCI Passthrough.
  13. my few cents; I have used a 750 EVO but the NAND is not durable. Currently I use a CRUCIAL MX500 1TB and it seems excellent price/performance ratio wise (paid ~260 USD). it tends to overheat (probably my bad -airflow since its stuck on the backside of the board against a tower wall) It also feels a bit slower than a Samsung Pro. I´d stick with Samsungs PRO line either SATA or if you need the speed NVMe via PCIe. The PRO line has a higher TBW spec but costs a bit more than the EVO. About size - totally up to you - I had the 750 EVO with 500 and it got too small quickly with all the VMs on it.

    +1 count me in. built-in filemanager would be awesome
