    Generally pretty slow perfomance

    I needed t o move the 'system' partition manually to the cache too but no luck with that. So here is a diagnostics file: unraid-diagnostics-20190111-1314.zip Would be really glad if someone would have a look. 😁

    Generally pretty slow perfomance

    Will definetly do but can't find the time right now for it! Thank you for your answer, it hinted me in a right direction. I added the cache driver after configuring the docker files. I assumed that setting the appdata share to only use the cache disk, the next mover job would move all appdata from the array to the cache. This isn't the case. I had appdata data on different array hdds and the cache disk. I suspect that only new data got written to the cache disk. I moved everything onto the SSD now and Plex feels way snappier now. 😘 But when I start SABnzbd the system slows down again and turns sluggish, so I will search further and come back with some diagnostics.
  3. Hi there! I built my first unraid server a month ago and generally I am pretty happy with the gui, features ecosystem etc. My only downside which is a pretty big one, is that the system is extremely slow and I don't know the reason for it. So hope to find the reason for my issue with your help since I don't know exactly where to start looking. My System: CPU: Ryzen 2600 MB: Gigabyte X470 AORUS Ultra Gaming RAM: 2 x G.Skill Aegis 8GB DDR4-3000MHz PSU: Enermax Platimax D.F. 600W Sata/SAS Card: Dell H200 Drives: SSD: PNY CS900 480 GB (Cache) HDD: 4 x WD80EMAZ 8TB HDD: 3 x WD80EZAZ 8TB with two of these as parity. Docker Containers: Krusader jackett ombi plex radarr sonarr sabnzbd tautulli transmission_vpn Symptoms: When I started using Unraid, everything was fine. It slowed down when I began adding Docker containers to my system. Without any containers running, I am able to copy files with full speed on it (Gbit ~110 Mb/s). But when I started to start some containers the write speeds slowed down a lot. Also the performance of the docker services is lacking, for example radarr/sonarr needs 10-20 seconds to load a single page and sometimes they can't open a page at all. The performance is the worst when sabnzbd is downloading files. Write speeds to a share drop to 0 or do not respond at all. Read speed is pretty bad as well, can't open folders in Windows explorer without crashing and skimming/playing video files is also not possible. Reasons: I really have no idea. 1. First I am not sure if such a behaviour isn't normal at all and I am just wanting to much from the system but I would have thought that my hardware should be capable to download, copy and host a webserver at the same time. Am I wrong? 2. Parity Drives. The symptoms existed before I added the two parity drives so I can rule them out. 3. Cache drive. This is my biggest guess. I added the drive later in my build and maybe I configured it badly? Every share of mine is set to use the cache disk. The 'appdata' and the 'system' share are set to only use the cache so I guess they won't be moved at night. The drive is connected to the mainboard, not the SAS card. 4. BIOS setting. Is there something I should look out for? 5. Do you have more ideas which could be the reason? Thanks for your help!
  4. Hi there! I want to build my first unraid computer soon and would love it if someone with more experience could have a quick look over the parts so I am not making a mistake. What do I want the computer for? * File storage for me and my girlfriend, our PCs only have small SSDs * Plex Server for audio and video (private use so only seldom external connections / transcoding) * Torrenting, Sonarr, Radarr etc. * Server for differnt self hosted services like Paperless, Calibre Server, Ubooquity etc. Parts... ... I already own: Case: Fractal Design Define R5 with 3 fans CPU Fan: EKL Alpenföhn Brocken 2 SSD: PNY CS900 480 GB HDD: 4 x WD Elements 8 TB HDD: 3 x WD My Book Desktop 8 TB ... I am eyeballing: CPU: Ryzen 2600 MB: Gigabyte X470 AORUS Ultra Gaming RAM: 2 x G.Skill Aegis 8GB DDR4-3000MHz PSU: Enermax Platimax D.F. 600W Sata/SAS Card: And in the future? * When the system is configured and running I would like to explore the world of virtualization for learning purposes I want to start with 5 data and 2 parity disks, each 8 TB big. I have a 500GB SSD which I wanted to use as a cache drive. This would give me 40TB which should be enough for one or two years. The case can be expanded to hold 4 more drives so it should be big enough for my future needs. First I wanted to go with an i3-8100 but it is pretty expensive right now, I can get the Ryzen for the same price which has 8 threads more. I am aware that the idle power consumption isn't that good but I hope it won't be too bad either. Since I am already over budget I thought I could get away without a GPU, for installation and BIOS settings I can put in the graphics card from my gaming PC, after that I will run it headless. I think I can't start tinkering with virtualization without a GPU but I can buy one when I have the system configured and the time to play with it. Or will I get in trouble by trying to so? Yeah that's it so far if anybody sees a problem with this build I would be happy to hear from you. Also if somebody has a recommendation for a good value sata card, let me know! Cheers!
