  1. I now get this happening regularly on a Lenovo Thinkstation E31 (Xeon E3-1225v2), never happened in 8 years continuous running on my old HP Microserver N36L. Have been running unraid 24x7 since 2011 (originally version 4.7, currently 6.8.3 on a Basic license) and never had the problem until moving to the new hardware about 4 months ago. Same installation - I just moved the USB drive and all the disks across to the Thinkstation and the problem started and has been recurring since then. Stopping then restarting the array fixes it for a few days or weeks, then it comes back again.
  2. Hi, Apologies for the simple question, but can anyone tell me how to backup a docker and then roll back to that version in case of a bad docker update? Specifically I'm running HomeAssistant, which often introduces changes which break things in updates. These are always fixable, but take effort and time to resolve. I'd like to be able to update the docker, but have the option of rolling that update back to the previous working version in case the update breaks too many things! I can then choose to upgrade at a more convenient time when I can fix the problems. Many t
  3. Unfortunately I have a whole load of MQTT devices set up manually in configurations.yaml already and haven't used discovery previously - maybe it's the mix and match it doesn't like. Do you happen to have an example of a standard sensor which should be available if it's working? Then I could just set that up manually as a test. Thanks, Tim
  4. Yep, HomeAssistant and Mosquitto are both running as Dockers on my unraid server. Does this look about right? is the IP of Mosquitto and it's running on the standard port 1883: Then in my HA configuration.yaml I have:
  5. Thanks. MQTT is definitely OK - running Mosquitto with about 20 Tasmota devices talking to HA quite happily. I've installed Glances as you suggested, that's working fine in HA now as well - but still nothing from UnRAID-API! It's not showing up on the Integrations page even with discovery enabled, so I wonder if I have misconfigured something and UnRAID-API can't actually talk to the MQTT broker for some reason? Any idea how to check that? I can just about configure devices but delving further into MQTT is a bit beyond me I'm afraid. Cheers, Tim
  6. I was really excited to find this as I've been looking for a way to pull UnRAID data into HA for a long time! Many thanks, @ElectroBrainUK! However - I can't get anything to appear in HA! I have installed UnRAID-API as a Docker and if I go into the web UI it correctly shows a whole load of data about my UnRAID server. If I click on the "MQTT devices" option in the UnRAID-API web UI I get this in the log - not sure what any of it means though: > unraidapi@0.5.0 start /app > cross-env NUXT_HOST= NUXT_PORT=80 NODE_ENV=production node --max-old-space-size=4
  7. Apologies for the delay replying to this thread - I got hold of a 5450, then the whole coronavirus situation arrived and I haven't had a chance to try it until now! Just to say "thanks", the card works fine passed through to a Windows 10 VM with no hassle (not even any drivers to install) - just what I was after. For some reason UnRAID detects it as a Radeon Mobile 5430 rather than a Radeon 5450 - but whatever, still works! Thanks, Tim
  8. Hi, I'm running 6.8.0 on a Lenovo Thinkstation E31 (Xeon E3-1225 v2), and I moved this installation across from an old HP N36L Microserver. Everything worked fine - including the CPU and mobo temperature and fan speed sensors. However, in my wisdom I tried reconfiguring something and it's now lost them! Settings doesn't autodetect the sensors on the system (it just comes up with "coretemp" as the driver and no sensors are listed). Can anyone advise how to find out what drivers I should be using with this system, and how to get UnRAID to use them? Disk temperatures
  9. Many thanks, all. Found a 5450 on eBay for peanuts so will report back when it turns up! Cheers, Tim
  10. Many thanks, Squid, that's great. I see many of those seem to have HDMI outputs too so that makes connectivity to the TV nice and easy. Will pick one up and give it a shot. The USB DisplayLink option which is (was) kinda working seems to be incredibly flaky - plugged a USB keyboard into the hub, selected to pass it through in unRAID and it just threw an error - now the VM won't even start! Many thanks, Tim
  11. Any suggestions? What I don't want to do is end up buying an endless series of obsolete GPUs which don't work if, for example, there's a modern key feature they must support in order to work. There are lots of guides on using high-end cards, but I can't find much on the lower end. Since my original post I've tried passing through the integrated graphics without success. I have managed to get it working (kind of) by passing through an old USB docking station which supports DisplayLink, then using VNC to configure the VM to display only on the "second" (DisplayLink) monitor. Unfo
  12. Hi, I'd like to set up GPU passthrough for a Windows 10 VM but would like to do this as cheaply (free...?) as possible! The VM doesn't need a decent GPU as it will only be used in my garage to read workshop manuals (PDFs), look up things on a web browser or play music through Youtube Music. It will be connected to an old 32" TV and I need to connect through HDMI (DVI, HDMI, etc all fine but analogue VGA looks terrible at 1920x1080 over a long cable). My server has an Intel Xeon E3-1225 v2 (Ivy Lake) with integrated Intel P4000 graphics - there's no other GPU in the sy
  13. Resurrecting this topic just to follow up in case it helps anyone in the future. I tracked down the problem to the built-in MQTT broker used by HomeAssistant. I disabled this, and instead set up Mosquitto in another Docker container and the ever increasing CPU utilisation has stopped. Hope that helps someone! Tim
  14. Aha! Thanks, I will keep an eye out on that thread for a solution. Best regards, Tim
  15. Hi, I have what seems to be a recent problem cropping up in that the Dynamix CacheDirs plugin seems to suddenly start consuming 100% of one CPU core. I've been running this for years without problem and the only recent change I've made (apart from keeping the plugins updated) is to update the version of my HomeAssistant docker to address some gradually increasing CPU consumption. That may have been masking this CacheDirs issue I guess. Attached is my CPU chart for the past 2 days - you can see utilisation suddenly jump at 20.45 exactly yesterday and has sat there ever
