  1. Oh I didn't know that, thanks for mentioning. I do have a 10Gbe nic installed and a bunch of SSD's laying around so this could be interesting.
  2. Been doing some reading on how UnRaid handles cache drives. When using VMs & Dockers benefit is quite obvious, both benefit greatly in speed when running from SSD / NVME. But without VM & Docker usage I'm starting to question utility of adding SSD cache drive. So far here's what I've gathered: - Write speed will be increased - OK - UnRaid does not seem to do read caching, so no benefit there - Power savings from writing to SSD throughout the day, then spinning up HDDs nightly for mover script Is there anything else I've missed?

    New build

    I'm facing a similar dilemma whether to go with Pentium G5400 / G4560 or Ryzen 3 2200G - wondering what you ended up choosing? Or if anyone could share if there are any issues still with Ryzen chips ?

    Would Celeron CPU Bottleneck 10GBe?

    Thinking to go with Pentium G4560 or G4600 which performs about 35% better then the Celeron. These are kinda hard to find though at the moment.
  5. Thinking about using Celeron G3930 to minimize power consumption. Will be using NVMe SSDs. Network shares will be to Windows & Mac. Would G3930 be a enough for 10GBe or would it bottleneck?
  6. What CPU + Motherboard would you recommend for best power efficiency? This for a storage only server, no VMs / no dockers.
  7. New to UnRaid, and excited to be almost done with my setup: 6 Core x58 Xeon; 16GB ECC RAM; 6TB parity + 2x 6TB + 3x 2TB; 10GBe Mellanox Connect X-2 over DAC System will be used strictly for storage & back up (no docker, no vm usage): Work files & Documents (~100GB), Movies (will grow), Win/Mac/VMs System Backups (~2-3TB). As I'm new to drive pooling, my first instinct is to use drive specific shares restricting media on one set of drives, work stuff on others, etc. but I have a slight hunch this may be less flexible and problematic down the road. Or is it better to just let UnRaid distribute files between drives as it wishes? Looking for advice / recommendations, I'm sure I'm not the first one to have this dilemma so please feel free to share your experiences. Thanks!

    Fan Control on DELL

    Need some help controlling fan speeds on a DELL motherboard. I know that this board can have software controlled fans, under Windows I can run SpeedFan successfully. I tried Dynamix Fan Control plugin, but it does not find / detect PWM controller - I'm not sure if there's a way to manually add drivers. I also tried to follow this guide to manually create a script but running pwmconfig command returns: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed. sensors-detect command returns the following # Chip drivers modprobe coretemp modprobe jc42 What else can I try? Any way to load up drivers for Dynamix Fan Control?

    Dynamix - V6 Plugins

    Running UnRaid 6.6.7 on DELL T3500 and having an issue setting up Fan Auto Control plugin. When I go into settings for the plugin and hit 'DETECT' for 'PWM Fan' nothing happens, also the 'PWM Controller' drop down says 'none'. I know this motherboard does have a PWM controller, in Windows I'm able to run SpeedFan and have software controlled fans. What else can I try to get the plugin to work? Thanks.
  10. The following PowerShell command resolved this issue for me: Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters" -Name "AllowInsecureGuestAuth" -Type DWord -Value 1 As stated above, this deals with Windows not allowing unsecured network shares.

    Unable to Set Jumbo Frame MTU to 9216

    That actually makes sense, thanks for clarifying that.

    Unable to Set Jumbo Frame MTU to 9216

    My switch uses 9216, and yes this is for 10Gbe. Sent from my Nokia 7.1 using Tapatalk
  13. My switch's jumbo frame MTU defaults to 9216, however I am not able to set in UnRaid. In UnRaid Network Settings I get this error message: "Value must be less than or equal to 9198" How can I set MTU to match my switch's 9216?

    Dynamix - System Temp

    Thanks for creating this plug-in. Its working on my X58 / 6 core Xeon build. I'm able to select 1 of 6 cores as my Processor Temperature field - is there any way to display highest temp per processor instead of individual cores?
  15. I'm considering the following UnRaid setup and need a recommendation on how to achieve this as well as some opinions / comments from experienced users. Parity: 6TB Drive Array: 3 x 2TB Drives for data (Shares will point to these 3 drives) + 6TB USB Drive to mirror data (Not selected in any Shares) This may be an uncommon setup, and some folks may say it's redundant but hear me out. My data will fit on 3x 2TB drives, I can setup Shares to use only these 3 drives and I'm OK having UnRaid balance the files and store data whichever way it prefers. However I do want another copy of all of my data on a single 6TB USB drive, this way I can always have access to my data on a single drive, outside of UnRaid, just in case. I also want this USB drive to be protected by parity. What would be a good way to achieve this?
