  1. I ran this command as recommended in a guide and before are the results -v -s $(lspci | grep VGA | cut -d" " -f 1)lspci 04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ASPEED Technology, Inc. ASPEED Graphics Family (rev 30) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) DeviceName: Onboard VGA Subsystem: Super Micro Computer Inc ASPEED Graphics Family Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11, IOMMU group 10 Memory at f6000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) Memory at f7000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) I/O ports at d000 Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [virtual] [disabled] Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 3 Capabilities: [50] MSI: Enable- Count=1/4 Maskable- 64bit+ Kernel modules: ast supposedly i should be seeing the Intel igu populating here, specifically "i915" as the KENNEL MODULE Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
  2. I changed the parameters to: --device=/dev/dri , and I'm even more confused after some more testing. Video files will now play with the transcode enabled in Plex, but it doesn't seem to actually transcode at all. Below is my playback settings along with the dashboard showing the corresponding stream:
  3. I'm trying to enable hardware transcoding in Plex. Initially I had a hard time getting the i915 module to be detected by unRaid. Only the mobo ASMEDIA ast VGA module was detected. After trial and error I found that I was changing the wrong setting in the BIOS. I changed that and now the system sees the igpu. My Hardware: supermicro MBD-X10SLH-F-O xeon e3-1246 v3 haswell unRaid upgraded to v6.10.3 during testing things i've tried: via BIOS, switched "VGA PRIORITY" to OFFBOARD since reverted back to ONBOARD installed INTEL_GPU_TOP plugin I haven't tried blacklisting i915 as suggested in the plugin's support forum, since that seems to be in response to newer hybrid CPUs like Alderlake+. I might be mistaken though so let me know please if that applies to my Haswell Xeon also. modprobe i915 command manually created /boot/config/modprobe.d/i915.conf file added device to Plex container added extra parameters: --device=/dev/dri:/dev/dri Ran : chmod -R 777 /dev/dri -results after running CHMOD Please let me know if any logs or commands would be helpful and I will post those ASAP. I have just exported fresh diagnostics.zip and attached. It's probably something simple that I'm overlooking. I haven't messed with hardware configuration on my system in any great depth, or at all for a while really, so I'm quite lost as to what to try next. Most of the results I get searching are geared towards discreet cards or issues utilizing i915 with newer CPUs. mootower-diagnostics-20220623-1915.zip
  4. Indeed your fix works!! Thanks a million! I'm now able to use the UUD in all it's glory! Well, except for that damn "unassigned devices" field still defaulting to the first drive in the list. But that's easy enough to ignore for now. Thanks again!!!
  5. Thanks! Your post cleared up some things, and I did indeed NOT have the unRaid-API docker installed at all! EDIT: figured out my initial errors with UNRAID API were due to having a custom port mapped for unRaid UI. I changed the server setting in UNRAID API to: server:port, and it's now pulling all the wonderful data! Image links aren't working for the dockers, but I'm gonna check your post since I believe you found a solution for that as well.
  6. I haven't refreshed hardware in my server in several years. I've been adding a lot of functionality via containers lately, so I'm definitely going to max out my mobo's RAM at 32gb soon. I want to lay out an upgrade path for the next several months. My budget is extremally limited so I can't go all out at once unfortunately. As a minimum I'm looking at a new case (with room for 10 drives so I can retire my Norco SS-500s) and installing an old GPU (Radeon HD-7950) to help transcoding maybe. My question: is there even an upgrade path while retaining my LGA 1155 supermicro MBD-X10SLH-F ? Would I get any significant boost by replacing just my Xeon E3-1246 CPU (in addition to doubling the RAM)? Or would I be better off saving money until I can afford a modern server board and CPU(s) to go with it? There seems to be a lot of varieties in this socket for Xeons, and I'm rather ignorant at interpreting benchmark metric comparisons.
  7. nvm. figured it out. it was a derp moment on my end
  8. I followed the guides and looks like everything is talking to each other nicely, with a few exceptions. hopefully someone can set me straight on them, otherwise I'll trim some things down: Blank Docker queries: Dockers (ALL), Docker Details, Dockers Running, Dockers Stopped Unassigned Devices lookup in header reverts to first disk in list immediately after I unselect it. There aren't any unassigned devices connected to my server Array Growth is blank, and what is "fB" unit? How can I change to GB? Plex History queries are all blank Array Status, Parity Status, Mover Running, Parity Check Running, Dockers Running, Dockers Stopped -- all are blank No temp or fan data anywhere. Sensors show as expected under IPMI in unRaid UI dashboard Where does the Sonarr/Radarr integration from Varken come into play? Thanks in advance! I look forward to further tinkering with the dashboard and data!
  9. I just installed the prometheus-qbitorrent-exporter. I have it set up as a source in Grafana but have no data yet. I'm completely new to both prometheus and grafana so I'm lost as to where to configure the environment variables for my qbitorrent instance. can someone point me in the right direction please?
  10. How do I run this container if I already have ports 80 & 443 in use? I tried changing the ports in the template but still get "Execution Error: Server Error" trying to start it either way.
  11. My bad! After posting I dug through my containers and sure enough, Komga still had that path mapped. Completely overlooked it before, but I've removed it now and should be good. Thanks!
  12. I have a share that has been several times. It keeps being recreated somehow. The share is /media. It only ever contained ONE folder, /media/books. I have since moved all of my stuff into a new structure, so everything is under one share, /data. So now all of my book files are located at: /data/books. However /media keeps coming back, with only one (empty) instance of the /books folder on one disk in the array. I delete the /books folder via MC, then delete the share via unRaid, but it will come back in a few days/weeks. What would be causing unRaid to automatically recreate a previously deleted share? I do not have any book downloading containers (i.e. claibre) installed. I can't think of any other automation software that would have that path mapped.
  13. I'm trying to find out what is causing recent performance issues with my server. Over the past couple of months I've noticed increasingly frequent hiccups in performance. Typically this is during video playback of a file via SMB/VLC on the network, but has also been when opening/navigating SMB shares via Windows PC on the network. When this happens I check the unRaid Dashboard and notice CPU cores bouncing from 70-80% and spiking at 100%. There is no other activity from the server at this time (i.e. remote Plex plays initiating or transcoding). Now I'm at a loss as to the best way to pinpoint what container/process/service is causing the hit to the CPU. I have a few utility dashboard containers installed, but honestly I am not knowledgeable enough to interpret these and don't know what I'm looking for. I also have SolarWinds Kiwi on my Windows PC and just configured remote Syslog server in unRaid. But again, I'm not familiar at all with this so I don't know what to look for in the syslogs or what filters to set up in Kiwi to track performance long term. My question is: what is the easiest method to identify what is drawing so much utilization from the CPU and RAM? Is there a newb-friendly container or application I can run? What's the best way for me to go about this?
  14. I selected "Dive into Subdirs..." option and it completed instantly like the other share
