  1. Every since upgrading to the newest stable version of unraid This has been happening. can someone explain what exactly it means and what could be driving the usage up.. nothing else has changed except the Unraid verison.
  2. My array is made up of SSD's however I do not have a parity drive in yet so my question is 2 fold. 1) am I truely getting ssd performance out of the ssd's when in the array vs mechanical HDD. and 2) If I am getting a performance boost by using SSD would be using a HDD for parity restrict that performance down to HDD level because of it? Its just that a 8tb SSD would be like a million dollars so to get a HDD 8tb is reasonable.
  3. I am pretty sure it is transcoding to my mounted ssd. I have it installed there and the transcode is to the root which should be ssd. its just confusing
  4. any one? still looking to have this answered
  5. I have a Dell R610 with unraid Version: 6.9.0-rc2 (just updated) and a single VM (windows server 2016). Ever since updating to unraid Version: 6.9.0-rc2 I lost all access to the shared drives on my unraid machine. is there anything I would need to do to allow access to these folders again? both locally on the VM and on other machines on the network , all lost access. ** solved, was a conflict with my domain.local and unraid.
  6. I ran into this same issue. i tried everything I could but what I found was it stalled only when using the built in transfer tool. I downloaded fast copy. when I have a stall, i try again. usually it stalls again right away. at this point I run it with fast copy and it works perfect every time.
  7. i ran into this exact same thing. if I use unassigned drive it shows the disk as an XFS and is mountable but when added to the array the partition is auto and cant mount. I have no idea how to fix this but would love to hear some options. I even made a new config for it and still same issue.
  8. I am wondering What uses "Dcker Memory" and how do I increase the amount that can be used for it. I have 24gb of ram, dont run any VM but I have a pretty extensive Plex server running. It always seems when I have a lot of people using plex, the Docker memory usage goes way up. I have hardware transcoding on with a P2000 and meta data and transcoding folder set on a unassigned disk SSD so im curious why sometimes ill have 25 people streaming and it is using half and other times im getting warnings that its almost full..
  9. i returned it and got a different one and it worked perfect. was immediately identified
  10. i remember upgrading through the tool then went back in and did it again in the nvidia tool . but im due for the next update of unraid so I will do it in nvidia and check to see if that fixes it
  11. Hello all, I am having an issue with my Plex server using HW encoding since upgrading to Unraid 6.9.0-beta25. Once I did this my Plex server stopped encoding. It only decodes. Anyone have any Idea how to correct it, I posted in the plex forum and no one seems to now. I have a p2000
  12. I agree, it didnt make sense but it seems to be what was happening, not sure if it cancelled and restarted. just know that the speed dropped and writes started on the array and fully stopped on the cache. if it happens again Ill try and get a video capture of it, maybe Im not understanding what I am seeing happening and am missing something but i think I pretty much explained it as I see it.
  13. Can anyone help me with this weird issue.. so Just recently started using a 1TB Samsung Evo Cache drive.. what I have been noticing is about mid way through say a 10gb file transfer (Im on a 1GB network ) I go from transferring at like 80MB/s - 90MB/s down to 30, 40 or less.. I look at the writes and they stop writing to the cache drive and start writing to the array. I have to cancel the transfer and start it again and it resumes at the high speed and writing to the cache drive. Maybe its a setting I dont have set up but the drive is no where near fill , less then 200gb on average before the mover runs.
  14. Ahh yes, that makes sense. Thank you. once my parity is done rebuilding ill pull and rebuild those drives. Thanks for making sense of my confusion.
  15. ok so here is where I am, So yes, I pulled the parity but yes somehow it became not valid which is ok. I wanted to upgrade my 8tb to a 10 anyways.. so what I did was out the 3 drives back in to the enclosures and with a new config everything is back. Its rebuilding the parity now but when I am done, I will be adding a few new drives. What I want to do is move the data off of the drives I put back into the enclosures to an empty disk so I can then remove them from enclosure, add to my disk shelf and format..... Other then Krusader since it sucks, slow and errors. is there a fast/semi easy way to copy from one disk to another? Thanks and sorry for confusion. also thanks for all the replies.
  16. I have a parity, i just pulled it when I pulled the diag. I think you are right. I am going to add them back to enclosure untill I can offload them onto a new drive 1 at a time
  17. I am getting this error now. I was using these drives in the WD Easystore enclosure, i sinced removed them and now they show this... any way to fix it?
  18. thank you for the great explaination
  19. I am trying to fully understand the cache drive and how necessary it is. I am primarily running a plex server and NAS for achieving.. here is my question.. 1) The files I move onto the server that get put onto the cache drive before the mover moves them... will they be simulated as in their final resting place? I.E. if I move a file to my movies folder although it goes to cache. untill its moved by the mover will I still be able to find this file in the movies folder. 2) If that file is in use while it is on the cache drive and the mover tries to move that file.. will it fail to move? Will it kill the plex stream of someone watching it or if its a Doc. will it error out the doc thats opened or will it move without interrupting the current access of the file. Thank you
  20. can some one help me with my high utilization all of sudden. out of no where it starting to shoot to 70%+ nothing has been updated or anything.
