  1. Yep! You are 100% correct! I uninstalled the nvidia and gpu stat plug-ins, and reinstalled. Good to go!
  2. Please help! My log is filling up with the attached error. Diagnostics and screenshot are attached. I'm not super smart when it comes to Linux, so dumb it down for me, k unraid-diagnostics-20201120-2025.zip
  3. After adding a bunch of files to my server, and wanting to guarantee that they wont be lost in the future, should I run a parity check (for first time since adding files) with "write corrections to disk" checked, or not checked? And should I not be downloading or adding files during the parity check?
  4. I am experiencing extremely slow parity checks and disk performance. This is due to poor planning on my part, by using all USB drives and multiple USB hubs (Anker 4 port). Which would be a better option for me, in order to make the situation better? 1.) Remove my hard drives from their plastic cases, and plug them into SATA connectors on the current PC? How could I do this and NOT lose any data? 2.) Move my USB drives to a much higher powered PC (see below) and purchase a quality USB hub (Anker 10 port). Is this even possible? Current set-up: AMD 8350 Two - 8TB USB Seagate Drives (Parity) Nine - 5TB USB Seagate Drives One - 1TB USB Drive Three - 8TB USB Seagate Drives New set-up: Ryzen 7 2700X MSI X470GPLUS Performance Gaming Motherboard
  5. Sorry, but can you explain what a Root Port is? Sorry.
  6. I currently have ten 8TB USB hard drives and two 8TB USB parity drives. My monthly parity scan takes about 9 days to complete. As the parity checks are doing it's thing, the server is about worthless, as I can't stream anything without buffering, due to the slow drives that are in use. I currently use several Anker 4 port USB 3.0 hubs, that connect to my 3.0 USB ports on my motherboard. I have a AMD 8350 8 core processor. I'd prefer not to remove the hard drives from their plastic cases to expose the sata ports. Is there anything I can do to fix the extremely slow parity checks and slow downs? Is there a better USB hub?
  7. Is there some plugin or docker I can use to tell me what is using up disk space? Something like WinDirStat? I have a feeling that I have a lot of garbage on my server.
  8. First of all, let me say thanks for everything you've done for the Unraid community! Absolutely love your products! I'm a newbie, so take it easy on me :) 1. Is there a way to test the vpn connection, to make sure it is indeed working correctly? I have Sonarr, Lidarr, and Radarr proxy'd through this app, and want to cover my bases. 2. What about a vpn kill switch in case the connection drops?
  9. Does it matter if the drives are usb 3.0? Would that be the reason for the slow parity sync?
  10. Hello team! I am new to this, and had a question for the pros! 1) I've noticed the the parity drive is writing while the mover is moving. Is it writing a new parity? Do I still need to run a parity check after the cache is cleaned out by the mover? 2( I have about 50TB of storage and two 8TB parity drives on a AMD 8370 w/ 32 gigs ram. I've noticed that my parity checks are taking 4-5 days to run. I believe this is due to new data being saved to the server while the parity is running and Plex Docker streaming at the same time. Correct?
  11. I currently have 10-5TB hard drives in addition to my 2-5TB parity drives. My question sounds morbid, but is not intended to be. Let's say my house burns down to the ground and I lose all 12 hard drives, but kept the most recent copy of the parity drive backed up online. Will that parity drive back-up be enough to rebuild all 10-5TB drives? Should I back-up both parity drives, or will one be sufficient? Any pointers for me?
