  1. Hey guys, I want to setup an nvme drive as pass though in my VM to get close to bare metal performance for gaming. Before I do this, I took some benchmarks of the existing vdisk performance before I did it for comparison. I noticed that the numbers for usual benchmarking tools are claiming very unrealistic performance stating numbers that are simply too fast and impossible. I gather that this is due to the way vdisk works with caching? Is there a way to turn this off and test more easily to get a baseline? I tried i/o zone but could not understand how to use it easily as it is cmd
  2. What has changed then? Why are hacks occurring more now?
  3. Thanks for the support with this. I've had a pay around with my 3070 and got it passed through to a VM where it does indeed hash at 61mh/s with the memory overclocked. In this docker it sits at 51/52mh/s. I have been successful in adjusting the power limit using nvidia-smi as you proposed above. This worked perfectly and halved my power usage. I was also able to set the core GPU clock also using nvidia-smi with no issues. I did have to set persistance mode on. For the memory however, I can only see a command mentioned as like this: nvidia-smi -i 0 -ac 2000,1
  4. The below shows the IOMMU groupings for the Asus B550-E ROG Strix Gaming Motherboard. IOMMU set to enabled in BIOS and ACS override setting in unraid VM settings set to disabled. Lines separate each group. Out of the box the below presents the following issues possibly: 1: The disks (bolded below) all come under the same IOMMU group. I was expecting that the onboard SATA disks (in my case Samsung SSDs below) would be separate to the HBA card mechanical spinners. I assumed this meant that the VM could not have an individual SSD passed through to it as the entire drive.
  5. When you say you are passing it through...how? If it appears in unassigned drives then does that not mean that it is NOT passed through? What happens to the drive in unassigned drives list when you start the VM? Does it dissappear as it at that point gets passed through? When I checked the IOMMU groups on my B550 Asus ROG Strix E board, the IOMMU groups do not look good. Will explain more below. I checked my IOMMU groups and the two controllers I think you speak of are listed like so for me. This is with the latest BIOS from February and with ACS patch under VM manag
  6. When you say it's running beautifully .... Have you been able to separate the IOMMU groups out so you can individually pass through selectively what you want? I.e. what are the chances of running a VM with usb, gpu1, sata ssd off main board, M2 off main board all passed through, whilst Unraid used gpu2, sata HDDs off main board as well as off a hba card in pcie slot?
  7. Interesting, on the contrary, I have an AMD RX 590 which is a toasty, loud beast in another PC I have. When mining it gets up to 80-85c on stock clocks. I understand that the 590 is actually somewhat different to the 580 despite that it seems they would be very similar. I believe there was an architecture change between them. It mines in the UK here at approximately £2.50 profit a day at the time of writing this. My 3070 when I have monitored it in the trex webgui during mining, never seems to go above 33% fan speed and a temp of 61c. This is running in my loft currently though which is
  8. Yes I understand. I have not experimented with using plex on the same GPU at the same time as mining. I wonder if the 3070 would be handle a couple of streams and still mine at the same time. I guess I will have to do some testing.
  9. Thanks! Tried that and all working now. I take it there is no option to adjust clocks or power anyway? I find tht the mh/s for me is 52mh/s when mining ethereum on a 3070. Apparently my card should do 60mh/s. Is using it in this way via a docker pretty much the same as bare metal performance? I take it there would be no benefit of running this inside a Windows VM with the GPU passed through instead? I know this defeats the purpose of the docker but I'm just hypothesizing purely on performance hash rate. Nice work.
  10. Well I simply downloaded the latest trex version that shows in CA listed and it claims on docker status to be running "latest" version. See below logs. Should I be trying to source a newer docker version of trex from elsewhere then? My unraid server is running version 6.9.0rc2 and nvidia-smi shows this: NVIDIA-SMI 455.45.01 Driver Version: 455.45.01 CUDA Version: 11.1 But when I start trex it shows: 20210218 23:58:10 T-Rex NVIDIA GPU miner v0.19.11 - [CUDA v10.0 | Linux]
  11. I tried this trex docker on a new Nvidia 3070 card and it gave the following error: Can't start miner, Geforce RTX 3070 (CC 8.6) is not supported by CUDA v10 build, use T-Rex compiled with CUDA v11.1 or newer
  12. What did you find happened when plex tries to use the card to hardware transcode when it was already in use with mining? Did it refuse to use GPU at all or did it crash or lag? What about multiple stream attempts?
  13. Did you make any progress with this? I also have a 1050ti I just tried this trex docker out on to mine ethereum and found the hash rate to be less than 1mH/s. This could be normal though now. If you google for "ethereum DAG 4GB mining" you will see that the size of memory required to efficiently (or even at all?) mine ethereum now surpassed 4GB so it seems such cards may be relegated to mining alt coins like ravern or veil whilst still just about being profitable.
  14. I had been using the Dynamix S3 Sleep plugin for a while and all worked well for me, but recently having upgraded Unraid I am finding that when watching Plex, the plugin does not detect this and still shuts down. I have tried turning on to wait for network inactivity now as well as array inactivity to make it more strict, but before I did not need this and just had it set to check for array inactivity. Has anything changed with recent unraid versions affecting functionality? I basically want it to only shutdown from midnight onwards if it detects nothing is being watched. EDIT: Adj
  15. Just thought I would pop on here to say that I managed to update to 6.9rc2 from 6.8.3 without any apparent issues so far. My server has been offline due to house move. I had stumbled upon the nvidia unraid plugin issues and noticed it had become deprecated in the support thread. This led to me browsing the forums to see what happened and I read all about the fall out... So I decided to go straight to 6.9rc2. I don't normally deviate from stable releases but I went with this one to get the nvidia support back. Happy to report it all seems to work nicely and I've verified nvidia NVE
