  1. Yeah @Meannekes i totally agree and get your point, i should have gone with my 2 other highspeed "SPCC_M.2_PCIe_SSD" Silicon Power SSDs. I have 2 Unraid systems and the one with 2 of thoose disks in it, isnt mission critical, its more like hold some Docker Settings for plex or so and while its set to cache only, the settings are not that important. It runs raid1 anyway and its been barley used as a file cache. So failure rate should be low to extremly low. Next time the better ones
  2. Hey @JorgeB, oh ..... i even know the old thread, so the message isnt whats important, the SMART number 197 is the key here? Good to know, but afaik they should have fixed it in smartmontools according to this: https://www.smartmontools.org/changeset/5061 Just looked into my hostname/Main/Device?name=cache link for the cache drives and disabled 197 which is onr row below 188 which is also disbaled, maybe i missclicked or so and disabled 188 by accidient? Or is 188 disabled by default?
  3. I needed to update my plex docker instance on my NAS Unraid system. So i loggedin into the system via the web gui and i was presented with a lot of thoose messages about this error, going into yellow and green again, see screenshot please. After some searching via google with quotes and without i didnt really found an exact post about what this could mean, the closest i got to find something was this medium.com post ( https://satyeshukumar.medium.com/how-to-fix-current-pending-sector-count-warning-d9232220366e ) which bascially states Is this for my message also true? Did anyone already have this message/error and help me to understand whats needed for my system? About the SSDs: Thoose "Crucial MX500 250GB CT250MX500SSD1(Z)" are bought from 12/2020 so they are fresh ones, and i did invest a bit more money for them as a Raid1 Cache then go with the lower BX series. Please help :X
  4. Is this warning from an old harddisk era or is there a reason why its used on ssds? If i turn that off, can it come to disk errors and me loosing data unknowingly?
  5. Hey guys, i just bought 2 of these "Crucial MX500 250GB CT250MX500SSD1(Z)" for a raid1 cache, because they are in-expensive in Germany (~35 Euro a piece) and have at least a bit of a DRAM Cache, sadly within 2 days i got the first error ... do any of you have any recommendation for an alternative while i still can return both of them? (My scenario, at least raid1 of 2 identical ssds, about 250GB in size, should have DRAM Cache; Usage: a bit of copy-cache, a few dockers 5-15 and maybe a vm in the future with gpu-passthrough, just set and forget as a home-lab, the array has 16TB of space with 1 parity disk) Following the example of @allanp81 - Its 12-2020 and still happening, did no firmware upgrade.
  6. This one "did you set the unRAID DNS to the IP address of Pihole (not recommended)" I had it for 2 weeks running with only static dns entries, not dhcp and router stuff, it worked like a charm on selected clients, but now where its in the broad, inronically the unRAID system suffers from that, i kinda think off just setting the unRAID IP settings to static and use as DNS from unRAID, seems like a easy fix.
  7. Hey guys, i followed the guide from SpaceInvader, here and there are a few hickups to feel compared to an AdBlock extension but i can live with that. What i cant live with is that i setup'd it like in the video with DNS via DHCP over my router and the DNS address to my docker container and the unRAID server cant resolve any internet domains anymore, the resolv.conf states my DNS is right, but i cant do anything with unRAID in that state. Any ideas? I really thought it wouldnt matter that much that unRAID tries at bootup to get a DNS when the container isnt started yet but now, nothing is working. Regards.
  8. Hey guys, ive seen a few topics of this topic leaning more to questions about tech/config like raid0 or 1 on cache or what disks are TRIM compable and stuff, but after reading other posts im still unsure on how to do my usecase. So please help me out here guys 😣 My Setup: ASUS Prime B450M-A Ryzen 5 3400G 2x8GB Corsair 3000MHz RAM Sticks Disks: 3x1TB SSDs (1 ADATA SU800, 2 Crucial BX500) My Usecase / Whats my plan: I would use this server as a homelab, meaning: Some Plex (about 400-800G) Mostly dev stuff & virtualization (so heavy VMs and Docker Containers and Coding) Aside a bit personal data backup (like 150gb or so) Rest is for trying out new stuff The question are now: How to setup the 3SSDs at best, considering my usecase. I thought of just normal 2 ssd array and 1 parity, or just 2 ssd and 1 cache Im unsure in what ways ssds might die in the way unraid uses them, compared to a normal software raid (md) like under ubuntu Am i missing something?
  9. Hey, just installed "Dynamix System Stats" but the selectbox for timing doesnt work at all. all of my displayed data is for about the last 15 seconds. How can i fix that?
  10. I have run radarr, sonarr and tautulli, thoose are fine, the other ones i've never used and dont know them. Keep in mind that deep app virtualization over/with massive Java containers like Firefox Chrome FileZilla and stuff, chew through ram like a beast and are prone to have the same flaws/errors like the desktop counterparts, wrong expension, wrong webside, weird tracking javascripts running or massive open tabs will use up quite some I/O, CPU and RAM. Please always remember even the "BEST BEAST HARDWARE" with Layer1 or 2 or app virtualization can loose to some weird stuff and not perform like you want it to
  11. That is highly depending on what Docker containers you are running, you can give a 3900x hell with only 2 containers or can use a 1600x with 120 containers fine. Its just application virtualization, that can be done very heavy on load or very slim, very good and very bad, also everyone can do an image, there is experience factor in it. What 10 containers/images are you running?
  12. Im right know not running unraid on the system with this mobo, but i remember that every pcieslot was in its own group, that means, after the flash of the bios to the latest levels, most of the time the uefi ugesa or something similiar its called updates help a lot out there. Have a look at that here on my old post. To be honest, without a detailed architecture diagramm of your board and pcie lanes i dont think i can cleary refer to which port is what address and so on, so you are pretty basicly up to try it out. PCIE lanes in the iommu group dont follow the network card naming standard p0s0 and stuff like that, even if they would you still would need a basic understanding of your mobo architecture and most of the vendors dont include this in the desktop segment. Supermicro gives you that, but thats pretty much server/more servery.
  13. My Asus Prime X370 Pro, got this. But the B350 has that too, just use the ACS_Override kernel patch with the multifunction flag, you can google that or search this in this forum, its explain a few times here.
  14. Now i have, thanks for the clue, i didnt even know this was possible and its under account settings.
  15. There is not system in your sig, can you post it again pls? @shooga Can you please post your system too?
