  1. I'm seeing the same thing. It's had one CPU core pegged for quite a while
  2. I had the old version reporting on my UPS - but when I replaced it with the new version I can't get it to work. Was Sudo removed? Thanks
  3. Though I do have multiple VMS only one runs all the time.
  4. I'm not certain... I'm going by the Dashboard. Here it is without the VM running: And here it is with the VM running:
  5. I have a Gaming VM (Win10) set up using my NVMe drive in passthrough and am really happy with it. The system I built is more economical than performance but having gamed of a laptop for the past 10 years I find it more than I need. I'm running into one problem though, and it's more of an OCD issue than a real problem. I originally set the Gaming VM to use 16GB or Ram for Startup and Max - and as I said that is working fine. But I noticed that my memory reports as 62% used in the Unraid dashboard... Even when I'm not currently using the VM (But it is running). I tried changing the numbers to 8GB - 16GB (I'd actually set it to 24GM if this worked) but it changed the max memory to 8GB when I started the VM. I assume this is because Memballoon is set to none. I tried turning memballoon on but don't know what to confugure the PCI address as. I did find one that worked... but even with it running my dashboard sits at 62% Memory Usage. Am I just not understanding what it should look like? Should I avoid this in general to keep the performance of the VM optimal? Here's my current XML for the VM: Arbadacarba Win10XML.txt
  6. So I've got a 6 drive array (with Space for 2 more drive) that is using 12 TB drives and is 50% utilized. I've been thinking about doing scheduled drive replacements of 1 drive per year adding the first installed drive as a second parity and then swapping out ALL the drive every 7 years (May have to ramp that up some, but with 2 Parity drives I expect I should be fine.) In Windows I would run Chrystal Disk Info to give me all the stats on my drives including total up time, Power Cycles, etc... Is there a way to pull all that info in Unraid?
  7. Thanks for the reply Do you mean something other than segmenting the drive during windows install?
  8. I'm looking for some advice on best practices and to see if the general consensus might be that I'm completely wrong in my thoughts: I have a server that is Desktop hardware based and has been running really well for a few months. I use it as a Media server and for OS testing and Documentation. I recently got it in my head that I would like to run a Gaming VM on the system, so I added a GTX 1660 Ti and got that running fairly well. The NVMe drive is partitioned into 2 drives and the first is my Windows 10 OS drive (It boots natively on the hardware) and the second partition I am trying to use as a High speed holder for VMs and Unraid System files (libvirt, system and docker files). The Unnasigned 1TB SSD is my Steam Drive. Trouble arrises when, for whatever reason, my Windows 10 system shuts off unexpectedly. Either a crash (rare) or a screwup on my part (less rare). The second partition is left in a read only state until I restart the VM (and I think shut it down properly), but of course with the libvirt file on that drive I can't restart the VM until I copy it over to another drive - reconfigure the VM settings - Reboot the Unraid Server - and launch the VM. This is a bit much. When I'm testing things I can screw this up several times a day, and after my last oops, I lost all my VM configurations when the VM service would not restart. My questions are these: 1. Am I losing anything by leaving libvirt on the cache instead of the NVMe drive? 2. Is there a way to separate the second partition so that Windows can't access it but Unraid can? That way it never screws that up. 3. Should I move the other unraid folders off this drive and leave them on the cache. Is there really any benefit to the NVMe for Docker folders and the Plex transcode folder? Thanks everyone, I am loving this system and the potential that it holds. Arbadacarba
  9. Did parity Sync get WAY faster in these builds? It went from taking 3+ days to rebuilding in less than 20 hours. My 14TB parity drive has rebuilt so fast I'm worried something is seriously wrong... but I just had to start the rebuild again (I keep Nuking my parity drive... My mistake every time) and it's done 10% in an hour and a half.
  10. Hopefully you won't object to me dropping mine here... It's a beQuiet Dark Base Nine Hundred
  11. "Starting Plex Media Server" YUP... That was it... I renamed the appdata folder and that fixed it. Shamefull question - What do you mean by standard plex backup tasks?
  12. So there is no Support Forum for the plexinc version of the docker (that I can find). So I read through the recent posts of the binhex and linuxserver ones and they had some help... It's the SQLite database corruption issue... I guess it might have happened before I upgraded to rc5 but i'd swear I updated BEFORE the last time we watched something. Oh well, erased EVERYTHING for plex and started again... Luckily I keep my media files organized on their own so plex just picks up where I left off. Thanks
  13. Thanks will do... I just assumed since nothing I'm aware of has changed other than RC5 it would be usefull here. But I will post in the support thread, thanks
  14. I did a bit of searching and didn't come up with anything that matches my issue... I have no idea if it has directly to do with RC5 because it had been working at first... We watched a program on it 22 hours ago. Neither my laptop or my Nexus TV box can see the Plex server (Plexinc Docker) My Laptop could access the server at first but found no media and now I get "This Site cannot be reached". I tried refreshing the Plex docker, and I restarted the server a couple of times. I tried downlgrading to RC4 and that did NOTHING so I went back to RC5... The only thing I did on the machine between last night and tonight was run a VM with a Marvel Sata card passed through for a few hours but it is not running now. Next thing I'll try is reverting to a backup of the USB disk that I made before the problem occured. Though I thought I would put this out there first. Thanks Monkeying with it still has me confused... Fix Common Problems found that my drive mapping was not set to slave mode... Something that was set correctly before, but is not after the reinstall... (Of Plex) so I reset them. Now the browser finds the server, but the interface cannot find the media... A few minutes later and we are back to not finding the website... This is the first issue I've had with unraid that was not (as far as I know) self inflicted. Other than the fact that I'm running a release candidate. jupiter-diagnostics-20191104-2216.zip
