  1. Just edited my post above and incuded the diagnositcs and the issues. Thanks
  2. Hi guys, I keep getting these errors whenever I try to do any disk intensive tasks, usually tend to happen when writing to the array, nothing has changed, I am on the latest version of unraid: Jun 23 16:51:43 Tower kernel: ------------[ cut here ]------------ Jun 23 16:51:43 Tower kernel: WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 0 at net/sched/sch_generic.c:316 dev_watchdog+0x181/0x1dc Jun 23 16:51:43 Tower kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0 (e1000e): transmit queue 0 timed out Jun 23 16:51:43 Tower kernel: Modules linked in: xt_CHECKSUM iptable_mangle ipt_REJECT nf_reject_ipv4 ebtable_filter eb
  3. I noticed something interesting, if I run the speed test on /mnt/cache I get around 500MB/s for the SSDs, however if I run the test on a user share using the cache (/mnt/user/Movies), my speeds are around 40MB/s. I have triple checked that the share is using Cache and I have also checked on the drive to see if the item was indeed written to the cache SSD not the array, this doesn't make any sense.
  4. I have the exact same problem, I have a Samsung 850 Evo (500GB) and a 960 Evo (250GB), they are not in a cache pool, I have been testing them and my speeds are those of an untrimmed drive. I have ruled out all other factors like network etc. If I run the trim manually it says xyz bytes trimmed, however if I run the trip again exactly after the command it says the same xyz bytes trimmed, shouldnt it say 0 bytes as the previous trim should have trimmed?
  5. I passed through my GPU but in OSX it shows a generic adapter with 7mb of ram, the VM feels very sluggish, and choppy video playback, no audio over hdmi?
  6. Hi gridrunner, I messaged you on Youtube and you asked me to paste my VM XML and Devices. I am not sure how to passthrough a GPU, the XML I am using is your VNC template one, I am not sure which lines to get rid of and which to add, I tried using the alternate xml from your zip and got the GPU working, however I had a lot of tearing in videos and there is no audio over HDMI. Pasting my current XML below: <domain type='kvm' xmlns:qemu=''> <name>OSX Sierra</name> <uuid>a43a6297-9dfe-7c01-8706-cc24e23d4691</uuid
  7. This is great, but could someone please try the latency monitor to see what the latency is like in the VMs? I imagine the latency will be much higher since the cores are now dynamic and probably shared.
  8. I am also very interested in this, please share your method. thanks
  9. Hi, I would like to try this, how did you pass through the SSD? Does that mean I will have to do a reinstall (I am assuming vdisk image won't work?)? Could you please show me the passthrough section of your template. Thanks
  10. I know what you are saying, its just not as simple, I will have to source an SSD before I can try that.
  11. Gentlemen, We have success (somewhat). This is what I did. <cputune> <vcpupin vcpu='0' cpuset='2'/> <vcpupin vcpu='1' cpuset='3'/> <emulatorpin cpuset='4-5'/> </cputune> No CPU isolation, and all the other VMs are off. No latency issues, no performance issues, no audio issues. However, if I share a care with any of the other VMs, then severe latency issues, so summary is have the emulator tasks off loaded to a free core, do not share any cores with any VMs or unraid and everything works as expected.
  12. I will definitely give that a try and report my findings. Since you have the same CPU, do you have CPU isolation in your sysconfig? Or you are simply assigning cores from the GUI? My latency issues get worse when I don't isolate CPUs. And if it's not too much to ask is it possible that you could assign 2 instead of 4 cores to one of your Win 10 VMs and try playing a 4k youtube video and see if there is any stuttering? It is entirely possible that I might have some other device in my system that is causing the latency issues. Would really help to isolate the issue for me. Thanks
  13. cpu pinning does not need to correlate to actual cpu numbers on your host. If it did, you could never run more than 1 vm. In fact, it's better to not put a vm on core 0, as unRaid prefers it for host operations. The op is attempting to put the vm on "core" 3 and its hyper threaded pair. Some people swear by this method, but I've found for certain vm's that using cpu "sides" and not using their hyper threaded pairs in groups actually works better, at least in my case (using a dual processor server.) to take it a step further, and for better response in vm's, one should isolate the intende
  14. From what I have read on these forums, you are supposed to assign the matching threading pairs to your VMs for better latency, the thread pair is shown on the Dashboard screen and also in the System Devices tab. That is the pairing I am using. Using it like you will result in worse latency, again this is what I have read on these forums and it's also mentioned in the CPU assignment thread sticky in the KVM forums?
