  1. Correct. I will update my original post to be more clear, I guess I wasn't as clear as I thought.
  2. Yes but the share min free space takes precedence when that share is set to use the cache, which is ultimately the problem.
  3. The alternative would be to have a separate setting for how much free space you want to maintain on the cache, just like you can for a share. Cache drives are not going to be as big as data drives (let's assume we're talking about 99% of setups), so chances are you might fill it up more than a share setting, but there can remain more than enough space for file transfers. If you need/want an example, I might have my share set to 150GB min, but various files could have been written to multiple shares and reduced the cache drive to (just) under 150GB. If I then want to write another file (size is
  4. If a share is not set to cache only, and a min free space is set, I think it should only apply to free space on HDDs, not how much free space is on the cache. I only want to fill up my drives to certain amount, but I always want to utilize the faster write speed of using the cache drive, however if the cache fills up and has less free space than the share setting, it will write straight to an HDD and be much slower. Making it an option would work too. Perhaps a better explanation:
  5. You have to edit the config file in appdata for the settings you want to stay between sessions.
  6. I love dockers, and I've love to see unraid -> unraid backup/sync.
  7. You have to edit the values in the rtorrent.rc file in your appdata/rutorrent/rtorrent folder
  8. Happy Birthday! I can't even remember how long I've used it, close to 10 years maybe? I just love that it's so easy to expand storage and fix failures, I'm never really that worried about catastrophic failures. Dockers are so easy, it's really quite great. The plugins and community are icing on the cake.
  9. The CPU usage problem has not been fixed. Just had to restart my two instances. Does anyone recall which is the latest before the CPU usage problem?
  10. Wow, seems this one has been ignored but many people would like this. I bet a lot of us have VMs that don't use any share data at all. pfSense, pihole, LibreNMS for example for some.
  11. Yes, I'm still not 100% convinced since I had not done the rebuilds in maintenance mode before so will be good to see a check in normal mode indeed. I might do that soon. Well, it will happen in 4 days anyway on schedule.
  12. Good news finally. I swapped out the PSU with the one I noted above. I then rebuilt the 3TB drive in error, and it completed with no error, so then I rebuilt the 8TB drive in error and it just completed without error. I did it in maintenance mode, but it was probably the different PSU. I know I could have rebuilt two at the same time, but chose to do one at a time. So hopefully the many weeks long ordeal is over. Thanks to everyone for the support.
  13. Okay, I have one of these as well I found in the basement, https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Power/txm-series-2017-config/p/CP-9020130-NA so I will swap that in, as I think it's a single rail and then try a rebuild, in maintenance mode.
  14. Confirmed that the backplanes are powered by two cables, not just split off one. So they're on two rails, which is probably okay. Rebooted, and have a new drive in "error", despite it showing zero errors, don't think there was even any reads. I'm quite frustrated with this, not sure what to do. Swap the i5 cpu back in? Nothing else has really changed. Well when I checked the power, I removed a reverse sata->sas breakout cable and replaced it with a sas straight to the HBA card, so the only drives off the mobo sata are the 2 ssd cache drives. Starting to pull my hair
  15. No cascade on the expander nope. I also for a bit there didn't have the expander in but have it in now as I tried to rule out the newest HBA card being the problem, which doesn't seem to be the case. I also realized these errors started at the same time I swapped out the i5 for the i7, same mobo and ram. Might mean nothing.
  16. Great to know! I will investigate and make sure that is the case, about the labeling, and that I still can find the extra cables. Might be a good time to get a new PSU with black friday approaching quickly. My estimation puts it at most ~600W of draw, so perhaps I might upgrade to something larger if I go that route. i7 CPU, ~21 HDDs, 2 SSD, 3 HBA, 120mm water cooler, 3 120mm case fans, 2 80mm case fans, 32GB ram. And temporarily the intel SAS expander. I still find it odd that it's 768 errors each time. This is on an older 3TB drive, I'm reluctant to replace it wi
  17. Good question, seem it's not a single rail, so that might need some further investigation as to the power setup. It's an Antec HCP-850, High Current Pro. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=215 Right now since the backplane takes molex, they are probably split off one cable. I will get another cable and split the power to the backplanes at least to another, I hope I have a cable. Or, get a single rail PSU ya? Wasn't a problem for a while though.
  18. 850w PSU. With all disks spinning it's only been 250w load, but that's not during a rebuild, I haven't checked that.
  19. I am sadly still having issues, here is what I've done and am still experiencing. Replaced the cable to the backplane that had 3 drive issues, a 4th had no issues. Removed the HBA the cable was plugged into and move it to the expander. I took one of the drives from that row that reported issues, and ran a pre-clear on it, resulting in no issues and a successful pre-clear and clean SMART status. (It's been a couple weeks so not 100% sure on every detail) Rebuilt the drive (disk6) no issues (I think). Rebuilt drive 16, near the start there were 768 errors on
  20. I have dual parity, otherwise I would have been f'd a long time ago.
  21. SMART test I forgot about, thanks. I did eventually think to do a non correcting parity test. Almost 4TB in and no errors. Might let it finish then rebuild the remaining failed disk. Seems either that cable or HBA card, or 3 slots on that backplane are the problem. I think what I will do is take a couple spare drives put them in those slots and do some pre-clears on them to see if there are any read errors to keep ruling out the exact culprit.
  22. 3 of the last failures were on the same backplane, however at least one was there cause it was moved prior. Either way, I have replaced the cable to that one, and replaced the card with the new card that I removed that I thought was the culprit but problems continued after. So, new cable and card going to that one backplane row that had drive issues. How can I test the drives, I'm guessing just some reads across each, to know if there are errors still without doing a drive rebuild right now?
  23. In hindsight I should have stopped doing rebuilds as the data was fine, figured out the problem, then just rebuilt parity leaving the disk intact. Although the first one I did I had no reason to think I'd end up with these problems. I have an 850W power supply and according to the dashboard the UPS load is ~210W when all spinning. I'll see if I have a spare PS I can swap out, I also have a couple extra SAS cables so I can do some swapping to see. Seeing as the 3rd HBA removal didn't stop the issues as I thought it might have started them, I will use that card to replace the other 2 one a
  24. Over the past couple, maybe a few now, I keep having drives "fail". It's been several different drives, and not a single one has anything wrong with the SMART statuses. I had recently installed a 3rd HBA card and removed an expander. I thought maybe that was the culprit, but I can't recall if I had a drive fail before or after I put that in. Either way I removed the new card and I still have had a couple drives fail since. I have done rebuilds on all of them, sometimes a 2nd drive "fails" during a rebuild, sometimes after. This latest time and once other a drive has tons of errors during a reb
