  1. @1812This is so clutch!! When you said to remove topology, I had no clue what you were referring to. It's as simple as removing the line: <topology sockets='1' cores='2' threads='2'/> from the xml file after toggling the CPU's that you want to assign to the VM. So again, thank you for the pro tip!
  2. Could the plugin version be incompatible with the version of Deluge that you're running? I recently ran into the problem of a pluggin/egg file (Copy Completed) not installing via Web GUI and the version that SpaceInvaderOne had was one version newer than the one I pulled from the Deluge site/forums. Not sure if this will help solve the issue, but try making your changes to the preferences using the Web GUI and Apply/OK them. Next, go Connection Manager > Disconnect > Reconnect > Stop Daemon > Start Daemon Stop/Start the Deluge docker I was running into an issue of the Plugin's settings were not being saved after stopping and starting the Deluge docker. Doing this, seemed to help me and I got the idea from here. Initially, I thought it might be a permissions issue as this was showing up in my log: WARNING: file 'credentials.conf' is group or others accessible So, I deleted the perms.txt file thinking that would solve the issue. I also, understood not to run the New Permissions (Located under Tools > New Permissions) on the /appdata directory as it will have a negative impact on any Docker containers — so, I didn't run New Permissions.
  3. Would this fix the Zen states warning in Fix Common Problems app? Honestly, I haven't experienced any perceivable performance issues with the Zen states warning that the Fix Common Problems plugin reports; the corresponding thread that the plugin links to doesn't seem to pertain to Threadrippers per say.
  4. Is there a benefit to the ~+27 C for some processors? I thought I shared a screenshot from the terminal showing the "four" temperature readings. Regardless, thank you for the informative response @John_M
  5. Report Findings: Dynamix Auto Fan Control is incompatible with the Threadripper 1950x running on a Gigabyte Designare X399. Only the CPU Temperatures are detected by Sensors command. This is after performing sensors-detect command and saying YES to all the prompts.
  6. Testing with a 1950x on a Desginare X399 So initially clicking on Detect didn't do anything. typing Sensors or k10temp into the field allows the plugin to pull in the temps. But, only two sensor readings. I have the latest bios installed for the Desginare X399. This command worked. Output: But I do not know what those sensors reading from. I do have three (3) wire temperature sensors that I attached to the motherboard that come with the Designare X399. Loading into the bios when I have a monitor attached, you can see all the temperature readings and fan readings. Just wished there was a way to get all of this data inside Unraid since I am running headless.

All these processors have a sensor, but on those for Socket F or AM2+, the sensor may return inconsistent values (erratum 319). The driver will refuse to load on these revisions unless you specify the "force=1" module parameter. Due to technical reasons, the driver can detect only the mainboard's socket type, not the processor's actual capabilities. Therefore, if you are using an AM3 processor on an AM2+ mainboard, you can safely use the "force=1" parameter. There is one temperature measurement value, available as temp1_input in sysfs. It is measured in degrees Celsius with a resolution of 1/8th degree. Please note that it is defined as a relative value; to quote the AMD manual: Tctl is the processor temperature control value, used by the platform to control cooling systems. Tctl is a non-physical temperature on an arbitrary scale measured in degrees. It does _not_ represent an actual physical temperature like die or case temperature. Instead, it specifies the processor temperature relative to the point at which the system must supply the maximum cooling for the processor's specified maximum case temperature and maximum thermal power dissipation. The maximum value for Tctl is available in the file temp1_max. If the BIOS has enabled hardware temperature control, the threshold at which the processor will throttle itself to avoid damage is available in temp1_crit and temp1_crit_hyst.
  7. General rule of thumb is to leave CPU 0 and its corresponding hyperthread open to Unraid. All other CPU & HT are free game. Try moving your VM's to CPU 1&2. Dockers can go later. There is a thread somewhere in the forums that go into further details on how to discover which CPU's are on which particular die. Also, subscribe to @spaceinvaderone's YouTube channel, as he has a video on CPU pinning and VM's. Good luck and share with us your discoveries! P.S. - If you don't like the forum's search engine, use the syntax: site:forums.unraid.net search terms Into a search engine such as DuckDuckGo, StartPage, or Google, replacing search terms with your intended query. I'm sure that you'll find what you are looking for in the forums as many have asked similar questions in the past.
  8. The Hide button simply became a mystery that only the Invision Community devs know about.
  9. LoLz. No I haven't. I can see a use wherein a forum user will want to post to the forum and yet, they don't want it fully and readily accessible by a search engine such as Google. e.g. information that the user deems as sensitive in nature; limit meta-data
  10. Weird. Using the Hide button works, but a complete refresh of the page...the poof...the post is gone even for me. Does anyone know what the Hide Button does?
  11. This is a test for what the 'hide' button does when you reply to a thread. I've searched the Invision Community's website, but they don't have anything in their documentation. My assumption is that it allows you to reply to a thread without search engines crawling your reply and storing it on their servers yet, registered forum users can still read your reply.
  12. Okay, I think I have a better understanding now. Thank you. I found the thread on in-depth CPU pinning, and will have to go over that in finer detail at some point. So, CPU Isolation is good when you want to run Docker applications in parallel to running VM's in order to keep the shared system resources tidy. In the case of Handbrake, this is counter intuitive because you will only be limited to a single core as CPU Isolation will not allow Handbrake access to multiple pinned cores. CPU Isolation will work great with applications that are not CPU/multi-thread intensive.
  13. Is there another way of wording the explanation that you quoted? I read the same thing under the help toggle when logged into the Web GUI, but for some reason it isn't clicking for me on how 'CPU Isolation works'.
  14. So, if I want to keep CPU: 0 and its Hyperthread: 1 for Unraid, it would look like this? Am I understanding the help tip correctly? At first I thought I would just pin CPU 0/1 and that would reserve it for Unraid. **Update** Yes, this is how CPU pinning for Unraid should look like if you want to pin Unraid to Core 0/1 (Threadripper 1950x). I was able to verify by launching terminal after a reboot and running htop from the command line. **Update** @Jcloud I was wrong with my previous update to this post. Now, I'm totally confused. With the settings set above in the screenshot, I thought CPU 0/1 would only be reserved for Unraid. Come to find out that, CPU 2–31 weren't being used at all when I ran a test with Handbrake. Instead, Handbrake was confined only to CPU 0/1 along with Unraid. Everything else was reading 0%. Now that I enabled CPU pinning on CPU 0/1 with everything else untoggled, Handbrake is now being confined only to CPU 0. Very strange.
  15. SUNDAY!! SUNDAY!! SUNDAY!! Come witness the Battle of the VM's live in 3-D! Chaos and Mayhem guaranteed! Greetings @everyone! I am curious to know your thoughts on which OS running inside a VM will give me the best performance. I edit photos in Lightroom, Photoshop, and Lumen. Video editing is also something I do with FCP X. While my primary workflow has been macOS based, I am open to the idea of installing my Adobe programs on a Windows VM if that means I will get better performance. My thoughts and assumptions: Windows is "VM friendly" Meaning, it knows when it is being ran as a VM. I would imagine that Windows will optimize itself automatically under these conditions. Windows will make better, more efficient use of the resources available to the VM. macOS Thinks it's running on Apple hardware, but because we are using "magic" to trick the OS into working for a hypervisor as a guest VM, we will take a hit in performance. While we are able to pass an Nvidia GPU onto the macOS VM, this will increase performance, but because we are hacking the OS, we are susceptible to degraded performance. It's well known that Apple isn't bleeding edge technology. That being said, performance will/may lag behind that of Windows workstations when compared in performing tasks such as rendering.
  16. I bought a Windows 10 Pro license, but haven't tried to activate it yet with my VMs. Is there any disadvantage of not activating your key on a Windows VM? Is there an advantage to activating? Is there a way to assign the activation key to more than one VM? I don't use a Windows VM as a daily driver. Only to edit photos and game.
  17. Is this covered in SPO's video on how to tweak macOS VM performance? Because I haven't watched it yet. LoL. @1812 Would you mind sharing your current settings? Or recommended settings? I'm setting up FCP X in my High Sierra VM and am trying to take full advantage of my Threadripper 1950x and Nvidia GPU; I'm also contemplating installing my photo editing software in the macOS VM instead of a Windows 10 VM.
  18. It is important to use the correct number of cores when creating a macOS VM. In the video from @SpaceInvaderOne, his guide works with 4 cores all the way up to 8 cores. I just tried 10/12/14 cores and that's where, I ran into problems. While I am new to Clover, I am curious to see if an updated Clover and a change to a profile like, iMac Pro, will allow me to assign more processors to the VM. Also, I noticed that we are using the Penryn designator in the XML, is this hindering us from assigning more cores/CPUs to the VM? The Mac Pro goes up to 8 cores. iMac Pro goes up to 18 cores.
  19. Not sure who you are addressing, but I will say this. I have my parity checks scheduled for once a quarter. In order to do this, you have to set each individual field. There is no option to schedule on a quarterly or bi-monthly, etc. basis. So, I'm not trying to schedule a parity check each week, it just so happens that I set the schedule for Sundays which just so happens is affected by the bug. Perhaps, @plantsandbinary is whom your question is for?
  20. I guess Unraid wants to adhere to the Sabbath; maybe computers are sentient after all.
  21. @plantsandbinary It's a known issue and will be fixed — hopefully, in the next patch. In the meantime, change your day to any other day than Sunday.
  22. The restart within Windows 10 is now fixed. Ha. I literally just signed on to come back and update my post. Thank you for the speedy response @eschultz
  23. When you were dumping the bios, were you trying to dump from slot 1? I understand that better chances of success are to be made when you move your primary GPU from slot one to a different slot, then dump the bios. Try that and report back to see if that solves the issue for you. When you dumped the bios, did you find it helped to place the GPU you're trying to pass through in another slot other than Slot 1? Are you doing single pass through, or do you have a secondary GPU for Unraid? This information will help other users. === I journaled extensively about my process in order to get GPU pass through without Error Code 43. Also to be noted, I stopped using the Restart VM button in Unraid because it wasn't functioning properly; same when using Restart from inside the Windows 10 VM. Now I just use the shutdown method inside the VM.
  24. It took me some time to figure out the forum's search and it's quirks, but it works. #tapeandglue I would've been happy to update the Wiki with the knowledge that I am gaining from SpaceInvaderOne's videos and raiding (pun intended) the Unraid forum, but logging in with my forum credentials simply doesn't work as stated before. I see a lot of reoccurring threads, but I suppose that is human nature. Either A) humans are lazy to make the effort to find the information they are looking for or B) humans are making the effort and the back-end is hindering the person's ability to find what they are looking for. Pro Tip #31: Using the search operator site:forums.unraid.net and your search term(s) with DuckDuckGo/StartPage/Google makes finding the information that you are looking for WAY more easier.
