  1. I think I found a solution to my problem. I'm thinking to go with the Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Ultra and the 10400 for the igpu. It looks like both HBAs will run at x8 as long as I can put one in the first pcie slot without it causing any problems. Am I looking at this correctly or am I missing something? The HBAs are both sas2008 chipsets.

  2. I'm currently using an 11 year old xeon setup and I think its time for an upgrade. It really struggles with plex transcodes. I'm looking at going intel 10th gen for the igpu to use with plex. The problem is I have 2 LSI HBA's and haven't really found a motherboard that's proven to work ok with 2 installed and still have decent performance. Does anyone have a recommendation on a motherboard I could use?


    P.S. I was going to get the intel 10400 

  3. I tried the deluge plugin with the same results and have to use the earlier version. I too am on airvpn so I checked with a friend on pia and he has no problems.  I disabled ipv6 on my router and the problem goes away and the latest version works. I will try those commands when I get home and see what happens. 

  4. I updated an hour ago to the latest qbittorrent and couldn't get to the webui. The log just kept repeating could not resolve I changed the repo to the previous version and all is back to normal. Is there something I need to change for the lastest version to work? 

  5. Here is a bit of history that lead to this problem. A couple days ago my flash drive packed it in but I had a backup and a spare. When I copied the files to the new flash unraid would freeze during booting. I formatted the flash again and decided to start fresh. I copied the disk and share config files to the new flash and reinstalled plugins and everything seemed to be fine. Last night I noticed sickbeard was putting media files on the cache drive even tho the media share is set to not use the cache. I invoked the mover and it moved the media files without problem but I noticed mover would run for hours. My sys log is over 50MB with it full of errors like this one.

    When I look through it to me it looks like mover is trying to move my apps share which is set to use cache only. Is there something im missing here as I dont really want to have to start all over again. Thanks for the help.

  6. I have the Cyberpower CP1000PFCLCD and can confirm it works fine with APCUPSD without any changes. Only odd thing is it shows the battery at 120% but I had a power outage last week and the server shutdown clean after my 5 minute timeout I have set.

  7. I ran the intel toolbox and continued using the computer for another half hour without problems. Did a proper shutdown with the start menu. I've reinstalled windows and all seems well now. Don't know why the drive decided to crash but I will see what happens over the next couple weeks.

  8. It's on a pure sine ups so it shouldn't be power related. I did run the intel ssd optimizer just before turning it off last night so I hope that didn't do it. I will re image it when I get home from work and see what happens.

  9. I've been using my intel 520 120gb ssd for about 6 months on windows 7 without a single problem. Last night everything worked fine and this morning when I turned on the computer I get invalid boot disk. I pulled it out and connected it to a work computer and it says its all unallocated space. Seems like it will let me format it and install windows again but I dont know if I should trust it now. Any ideas on what could have happened? I have backups so I can live without saving the data on it.

  10. I had a Belkin unit fail in a similar way a few years ago -- I suspect it over charged the battery.  You could smell the burned circuitry ... but it didn't catch on fire.  Belkin was quite good about it ... since they were no longer in the UPS market, they refunded the entire price I'd paid for the unit 2 1/2 years earlier (it had a 3 yr warranty).


    Belkin actually made some very good units at very reasonable prices -- I was disappointed when they exited the market.  I still have two of their units (just replaced the batteries last month) -- along with a 2 Cyberpower and 2 APC units.


    I have a Belkin unit sitting under my desk that makes batteries swell after a couple hours of charging and I never liked it. I always felt it was overcharging.

  11. I've also had other apc units fail and they normally just quit working. Leaves me wondering if its just this one specific model number and how they both started acting up in the same way a couple hours before. They were both older units about 6 years old so i'm sure the newer ones would be ok but I like the cyber power pfc series with the sine wave output so I will get one a try.

  12. Both of them were sitting on a desk in open air with nothing around and a 100w load which is my unraid server. Both models were the same back-ups xs 1500. Funny thing is both failed the same way. Last night I noticed it transferred to battery for a couple seconds and went back to utility so I thought nothing of it. Around 1am I was woken up by it switching between battery and utility every 5 seconds. I turned it off and back on and it seemed to be fine and passed a self test. At 3am I was woken up by the smoke detector and the ups was smoking and the plastic on the top was burning. The fist one did this about a year ago but it bothers me that they can fail this way. Guess i'm off now to buy the cyberpower.

  13. Long story short I woke up at 3am this morning to the smoke detector and my APC UPS on fire. This is the second apc unit I've had catch fire and im done with them. I'm now on the hunt for a different brand but want to make sure it will work with unraid. I'm looking at the cyberpower CP1350PFCLCD and im wondering if anyone else has used this one.



  14. Sorry my mistake the line is actually

    Aug 29 13:44:15 Tower kernel: perf_event_intel: PEBS disabled due to CPU errata, please upgrade microcode

    I just did some more tests and I can use mc and copy from disk to disk and speed is fine. I just copied a 12gb mkv from a windows 7 computer to the cache and it starts at 59 but drops to 28 within 10 seconds. Reading from a disk connected to the motherboard controller shows similar problems where it starts at 50 and quickly drops to 25 or so. Copying from pc to pc generally sits between 90 and 110 so im pretty sure the problem is with unraid or a setting I have missed.

  15. I've been running this server for almost 2 years now but recently noticed a sudden change in performance. Long story short prior to RC15 I could write to cache at about 65mb/s and to the array around 35 to 40. Now on the newer versions and on 5 final cache writes are around 30 and array sits around 16 to 18. I have attached my syslog and the only thing I see is line 185 which I have no idea what that means as im a linux noob. Does anyone see anything that stands out and also please ignore the fan script spamming the syslog as I haven't figured out how to stop that yet.




    PS: Parity checks run around 125mb/s


  16. Just a quick question I hope someone can answer. I've been using this plugin for about a week and I noticed at the bottom of the settings page it shows TX and RX. Now I used transmission and downloaded a 4GB file but for RX it says just over 600MB. Does this mean not all the traffic is going through the vpn? In the settings page it says its connected and shows my new IP and it doesn't seem to be dropping the connection. Just want some peace of mind and not worry that its not working right.
