  1. No ideas, it's not a very powerful CPU, but should it be this bad?
  2. Hi, Is it normal to have really high CPU utilization when copying files from one share to another? I'm on a Windows computer on the network and copy files from one share to another on my Unraid NAS, and thins is what the CPU utilizaton looks like:
  3. Well, you can run pfSense without AES-NI, but AES-NI sure will help, specially if you're running VPN:s
  4. No, AES-NI is a imoproved version of AES, NI stands for New Instructions
  5. I would also like to see this, perhaps there is a plugin that can do this?
  6. I'm planing to ad a new larger parity drive to my array. Today I have all 10TB drives one parity drive and six data drives, and I plan to add a new 18TB parity to be able to swap my existing data drives to larger ones in the future, and after the pari check is don I'll add the old parity drive as a data drive. My question is how will the parity check work when the th parity drive is 18TB, will it do a 18TB parity check taking almost twice the time as previous even thoght the data drives are only 10TB, or will it do a 10TB parity check untill I actually add a larger data drive?
  7. Earlaier I bought WD Mybooks beacuse they were the cheapest alternative, but now they are not. I'm thinking about getting Seagate Exos X18 18TB which are about the same price/TB as I payed for the 10TB WD My Books.
  8. No, I don't currently use it, but I'm planning on add a new lager Parity drive as I'm running out of drive bays. But what would the Parity Check Tuning plugin do, I mean it can't make the disk faster?
  9. Anyone using 18TB parity drive,if so, how long does it take to complete? For me using 10TB parity drive the parity check usually takes takes about 19 hours and 30 minutes if there is not too much disk actvity during the check.
  10. I have 7 shucked WD Mybook 10TB white drives running in my unraid, the oldest oldest 4 of them are just over two years old now and running just fine, and the newest one have been running for about 6 months. How long have you had yours running, and how long do you think one can expect them to last?
  11. Here are a couple of images for my Unraid using Fractal Arc Mini R2, with Evercool Armour drive bay:
  12. I'm not sure there are any issues with the NUT plugin, many peaple uses it. Personally I prefer APCUPSD, but mainly works on APC UPS models.
  13. If you can't read the flash content from unraid, I guess you have a issue there, have you tried it in another USB port. But I'm not really sure how unraid reacts when you unplug an plug the flash drive again while running, maybe Unraid need to be rebooted for the flash drive to be detected?
  14. What do yo umean by "disk 2 cannot be displayed in the disk selection in the sharing"?
  15. Do you have any flash drive backups, I always try to do that once a moth or whenever I do config changes?
  16. It would be great if /mnt/user and/or /mnt/user0 also was reported over SMNP, is that possible to fix?
  17. Is it possible for Unraid to show the size and free disk size of entire array over SNMP, instead of just showing the individual disks? This is what it looks like using Observium:
  18. Ok, that seems like a smart strategy. For my 10TB WD My Book it takes about 56 hours for each pass (pre-read, zeroing and post-read), so two passes might be more than enough. Ana I have also thought about having a cold spare at hand, maybe not a bad idea.
  19. Do you guys use the preclar plugin, and if so, how many passes do you run before adding a new drive to the array? In my Unraid I currently use six 10TB WB My Book, and the seventh is currently preclearing. I do two preclear passes before I shuck the drive, and then I do one pass after I installed the drive internally. When I do the first preclear passes while the drive is still in the USB case I use a fan on top of the case for cooling, and the temperature stays below 35°C.
  20. No, my drives are 5400rpm, they are WD White (WDC WD100EZAZ-11TDBA0) shucked from WD My Book. I guess there is more to it than just the rotation speed of the drives, and the main factor probably is as itimpi said that the larger capacity the drive have the higher the desnsity of the drive is, and therefore it reads/writes more data per revolution, and then I imagine the disk controller have something to do with it too?
  21. In my Unraid I use all 10TB WD White (WDC WD100EZAZ-11TDBA0), I have one parity and five data disks so far. With my setup parity check speed is usually about 150MB/s, yesterday when it last ran it looked likethis: Duration: 18 hours, 50 minutes, 32 seconds. Average speed: 147.4 MB/s

    Yes, this would be really nice to see.
