  1. I just noticed this section of the forum but I have to say for the most part I just don't get it. Sure, on your desk you want something that looks clean and neat. But for a server? Fans run the quietest in the basement, and the best fans keep your drive and CPU temps low. The best case facilitates cooling the best. From my perspective anyway. That's why my Unraid box sits in one of these.... https://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-Rackmount-Computer-Pre-Installed-RSV-R4000/dp/B0055EV30W/ref=asc_df_B0055EV30W/ It ain't sexy, but using those drive cages gives me fans in front of s
  2. Since running mover with a docker up potentially causes everything up to hangs that force you to do a hard reset, I want to check my work before putting this in. So every night at 2am I shut down Unraid using a script with the powerdown command. About 15 minutes after that the zwave box its plugged into cuts power. In the morning power is restored and based on a bios setting the Unraid box comes up. This allows me to shave power usage by 25% every day since it's a 6 hour outage when we're all supposed to be sleeping. I do have a zwave button on the 2nd floor that allows me to easily turn
  3. I'm having the same problem with an Emby docker. It could happen with more, but this is the only one I'm running. It just happened yesterday, and is happening again now. Multiple cores are at 100%, and it can't be stopped. I even tried /etc/rc.d/rc.docker stop to stop the entire docker service and that doesn't work either. I'm on 6.9.1 but this is not new. It has been happening since at least 6.8.3. I think I'm gonna have to set up a Centos server and run Emby in a VM until this gets addressed. The fact that this thread seems to be dead does not look promising, but here I go sendi
  4. ***ENHANCEMENT REQUEST*** It sure would be great if there were two options. One to suspend all scripts, and two to suspend individual scripts. All while retaining any custom scheduling.
  5. Yes, you would just change the setting "Use cache pool (for new files/directories):" in the share back to "Prefer" and run mover. Do this with VMs down.
  6. I just took out a ConnectX-2 and put in a ConnectX-3 to match my other machines, before the upgrade. No problems whatsoever on 6.9, and I'm about to upgrade to 6.9.1 tonight.
  7. Hello, I thought the custom schedule is 5 numbers separated by spaces, no? So if I want to run something daily at 3:03AM I thought it should be 3 3 * * *. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
  8. Yes I read something in this thread about some weirdness with the SSD pool, so I moved it all to the array. If you look at the cache settings you have to set a share to "Yes" if you want Mover to move it to the array. If you set it to "No" it leaves everything on the cache drives.
  9. That's one of the primary reasons I switched to "Hubitat". They not only allow you to back up the config completely, but it runs automatically by default. Off-topic I know, but I have to plug that thing. After years of constantly addressing Smartthings issues its nice to just USE smart home devices. Sorry, @limetech
  10. I've been using one of these since I started back in 4/2017. Nothing special about it other than it's the shortest I could find with nothing to snag. https://www.amazon.com/Verbatim-16GB-Store-Flash-Drive/dp/B00RORBNSK/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=verbatim+store+n+go+16gb+nano&qid=1614880234&sr=8-2
  11. When 6.9 first came out I couldn't even load this forum. Using it today it was mostly fine, but I still had some intermittent issues loading threads. I've done a speed test right after and no issues on my end. So you may want to consider moving the server if others have seen this as well. I have a Lightsail instance that sits in Ohio and so far no issues whatsoever.
  12. I upgraded from 6.8.3 with no issues. However before I went ahead with the upgrade I read this thread. So just for giggles I did the following before upgrading. 1. Disabled auto-start on all dockers 2. Disabled VMs entirely 3. Set Domains and Appdata shares to Cache "Yes", and ran mover to clear my SSDs just in case an issue came up. They're XFS. 4. Backed up flash drive 5. Rebooted 6. Ran upgrade 7. Rebooted 8. Let it run 20 minutes while I checked the dash, array, and NIC for any issues. 9. Reenabled Docker autostarts and VMs without starting

    Performance

    I did see that one, but it's nowhere near what I'm looking for. I'm not interested in any sort of a learning curve as the data I'm looking to extract is relatively basic. It would be like using Wireshark to determine if your broadband connection is up or down.

    Performance

    It's of course easy to take a SWAG at pins and memory, but I was wondering if there's an Unraid specific performance tuning app out there I might have missed? I just migrated to a 9900k with 64gb of memory, and I want to change pins on some Dockers as well as maybe tweak some VM settings. Is there anything out there that monitors Docker and VM CPU and memory usage over a period of time? Even better would be an app that actually tells you what to change, but manual is fine. I just need the data. Thanks in advance!
  15. Y'know, I'd really like to engage you folks on this, but I won't. All I'm going to do is point out what's obvious to anyone that has ever marketed software professionally. 1. NO ONE has asked me why I was annoyed at the difficulty of determining a way to schedule a simple task in the product. 2. NO ONE has asked me for specific feedback regarding the "user scripts" plugin as a solution. 3. NO ONE has asked me what could have made the experience a better one. Instead I get an empty-handed defense of the morbidly ineffective that for some odd reason at least one of you believes
