  1. For me the solution was to enable "list IOMMU" in the motherboard BIOS. I forgot to re-enable it after wiping BIOS's options to default.
  2. Exactly, normally you would do it from your bootable usb key
  3. In two words ; Machine Type Q35, VNC driver CIRRUS. Download NiceHashOS from : https://www.nicehash.com/download-center Download and install OSFMount : https://www.osforensics.com/tools/mount-disk-images.html On a Windows VM : - Extract the NHos archive with Winrar or 7Zip. - With OSFMount, select tthe extracted .img file and mount the DDOS3.31+FAT16 partition. - Uncheck "read-only drive" - Open the mounted partition in the explorer and edit the configuration.txt by adding your BTC address (from your Nicehash account) and worker's name (as you like). - Save the file and unmount the partition - Mount again the .img file and ensure that your changes have been recorded - You can now move the .img file in your domains/vm disks folder Create a new VM with Ubuntu Template. Ensure to have these settings : - At least 2GB of ram - Save on CPU cores as it will bring no benefits Mandatory : - Of course point to the edited .img file. - Machine Type Q35 - Change VNC driver for CIRRUS - Add a secondary nvidia GPU. You should be all set :). You can control the GPU OC settings from the web interface. Your nvidia GPU should have no more rest.
  4. I don't care about translation, what I care about is keyboard layout. When accessing the UI directly from the n°1 GPU (not the webui), it require me to mentally switch from azerty layout to qwerty. 🤪 I have seen posts about keyboard layout but didn't managed to successfully change the default qwerty layout. I'm surprised there's even translations without keyboard layouts. Please add that functionality as it has been a source of frustrations every time I hadno VM/GUI openned but required to type commands or edit a XML. 😪
  5. Thanks for the update ! Will get it thanks to you !
  6. Brother with a 5700XT waiting for a smarter bother to show us the way.
  7. No, but after struggling one day I wanted to use my computer instead of still try to fix it. Those are the results I got by swapping parts of the XML with for what you gave. I wanted me to avoid copy pasting but shouldn't expect any other linux competencies outside copy pasting. I can't do much more than test and report. I edited this as I thought you wanted me to (?) : <numatune> <memory mode='strict' nodeset='0,1'/> <memnode cellid='0' mode='strict' nodeset='0'/> <memnode cellid='1' mode='strict' nodeset='1'/> </numatune> I have no idea of what to think about the Aida results however. Much better L2 write speeds, but worse L1. Cinebench I now get 4885 on Cinebench, so on paper it looks a tiny bit better.
  8. I noticed it was working on some other VMs, so after reinstalling windows to be clear of software bugs, and after a good night of sleep, I messed around with the XMLs and ended up solving my audio problem while retaining the L3 performance. I get 4793 on Cinebench. So, with a 1950X, this is what worked : <numatune> <memory mode='interleave' nodeset='0-1'/> </numatune> <resource> <partition>/machine</partition> </resource> <os> <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-4.2'>hvm</type> <loader readonly='yes' type='pflash'>/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd</loader> <nvram>/etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/xxx_VARS-pure-efi.fd</nvram> </os> <features> <acpi/> <apic/> <hyperv> <relaxed state='on'/> <vapic state='on'/> <spinlocks state='on' retries='8191'/> <vendor_id state='on' value='none'/> </hyperv> </features> <cpu mode='custom' match='exact' check='full'> <model fallback='forbid'>EPYC-IBPB</model> <topology sockets='1' cores='8' threads='2'/> <feature policy='require' name='topoext'/> <feature policy='disable' name='monitor'/> <feature policy='require' name='x2apic'/> <feature policy='require' name='hypervisor'/> <feature policy='disable' name='svm'/> <numa> <cell id='0' cpus='0-7' memory='16777216' unit='KiB'/> <cell id='1' cpus='8-15' memory='16777216' unit='KiB'/> </numa> </cpu>
  9. I spent multiple weekends trying to problem solve my unraid system. So I'm glad it took you 10mn to read the topic, but it took me a few hours to do the benchmarks, test and confirm. Each windows reboot require a system reboot as I have a 5700XT. This fixed my latency issues but made somehow my realtek sound card crash (the windows audio service consummes 15% of the CPU, and freeze the windows audio settings). It still works in bare metal on the same SSD, no problem. Don't you think I went through some other topics already? As of today I just spent a straight 12 hours on problem solving unraid. Did your 2150 posts took you 10 minutes too? Don't you think I can rightfully express my regrets on not checking this topic twice, without having you trying to make yourself shine over me calling myself lazy ? Thanks for your forum contribution, thumbs down for your behaviour. 👎
  10. Not everyone can afford to spend countless hours reading every topic on you-name-it-forum.
  11. Oh, my, god. I came a few time on this topic but I was too lazy to read it all. This information REALLY needs to be condensed / communicated (or integrated in the OS ? ) by unraid's dev team. It would have saved me so much time. A bit pissed of off not having been informed properly ; I just have been told that TR were bad for gaming on unraid... After having bought a pro key. Meh. I run a 1950x + 5700XT + 64GB. Note that I use OVMF for the 5700 XT. I was getting 750GB/sec bare metal on L3 and 45GB/sec on VM. I now get a solid 312GB, but as I understood it's close to bare metal because I'm now using half the Threadripper. Some tips : I went to NUMA by booting on windows bare metal and setting the Threadripper to gaming mode with Ryzen Master. The option can be now hidden in the bios as AMD asked Motherboard manufacturers to do so. I had no improvements (results were worse) without activating Numa in the XML. I was previously running 12 cores for the VM but I'm fine with 8 only if I get stability. It applies not only for gaming but also video editing, where you never really knows if your system performs at it's best. I'm redownloading Modern Warfare, it's a good benchmark as it was UNPLAYABLE before ; system stutter every few secs. I'll update the post to confirm/or not if it fixed the lags I was getting. Here's (another) the XML and screenshots of the tests I did before achieving what I was expecting to get, thanks to you guys, who took time to collect and share that precious information ! <domain type='kvm' id='1'> <name>Windows 10 RX</name> <uuid>XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX</uuid> <metadata> <vmtemplate xmlns="unraid" name="Windows 10" icon="windows.png" os="windows10"/> </metadata> <memory unit='KiB'>33554432</memory> <currentMemory unit='KiB'>33554432</currentMemory> <memoryBacking> <nosharepages/> </memoryBacking> <vcpu placement='static'>16</vcpu> <cputune> <vcpupin vcpu='0' cpuset='16'/> <vcpupin vcpu='1' cpuset='17'/> <vcpupin vcpu='2' cpuset='18'/> <vcpupin vcpu='3' cpuset='19'/> <vcpupin vcpu='4' cpuset='20'/> <vcpupin vcpu='5' cpuset='21'/> <vcpupin vcpu='6' cpuset='22'/> <vcpupin vcpu='7' cpuset='23'/> <vcpupin vcpu='8' cpuset='24'/> <vcpupin vcpu='9' cpuset='25'/> <vcpupin vcpu='10' cpuset='26'/> <vcpupin vcpu='11' cpuset='27'/> <vcpupin vcpu='12' cpuset='28'/> <vcpupin vcpu='13' cpuset='29'/> <vcpupin vcpu='14' cpuset='30'/> <vcpupin vcpu='15' cpuset='31'/> </cputune> <numatune> <memory mode='interleave' nodeset='0-1'/> </numatune> <resource> <partition>/machine</partition> </resource> <os> <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-4.0'>hvm</type> <loader readonly='yes' type='pflash'>/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd</loader> <nvram>/etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX_VARS-pure-efi.fd</nvram> </os> <features> <acpi/> <apic/> <hyperv> <relaxed state='on'/> <vapic state='on'/> <spinlocks state='on' retries='8191'/> <vendor_id state='on' value='none'/> </hyperv> </features> <cpu mode='custom' match='exact' check='full'> <model fallback='forbid'>EPYC-IBPB</model> <topology sockets='1' cores='8' threads='2'/> <feature policy='require' name='topoext'/> <feature policy='disable' name='monitor'/> <feature policy='require' name='x2apic'/> <feature policy='require' name='hypervisor'/> <feature policy='disable' name='svm'/> <numa> <cell id='0' cpus='0-7' memory='16777216' unit='KiB'/> <cell id='1' cpus='8-15' memory='16777216' unit='KiB'/> </numa> </cpu>
  12. Hello. I was using the autosnapshot script and noticed that znapzend wouldn't create snapshots anymore of the dataset contained a snapshot made by the auto snapshots script. I guess it's conflicting between the two snapshots. [Sat Mar 21 06:43:17 2020] [debug] sending snapshots from zSSD/PROJECTS to zHDD/BACKUP_Projects cannot restore to zHDD/BACKUP_Projects@zfs-auto-snap_01-2020-03-21-0540: destination already exists [Sat Mar 21 06:49:22 2020] [info] starting work on backupSet zSSD/PROJECTS [Sat Mar 21 06:49:22 2020] [debug] sending snapshots from zSSD/PROJECTS to zHDD/BACKUP_Projects cannot restore to zHDD/BACKUP_Projects@zfs-auto-snap_01-2020-03-21-0540: destination already exists warning: cannot send 'zSSD/PROJECTS@2020-03-21-064445': Broken pipe warning: cannot send 'zSSD/PROJECTS@2020-03-21-064626': Broken pipe warning: cannot send 'zSSD/PROJECTS@2020-03-21-064921': Broken pipe cannot send 'zSSD/PROJECTS': I/O error I would like to move to znapzend however it doesn't seem to support shadowcopy. What I like with znapzend : - Ease of use to set snapshots occurence and retention rules. - Robustness by saving datasets between different pools... I lost a pool yesterday and that's why I tried znapzend. But shadowcopy is an option I had with thezfs autosnapshots script that I'm not willing to loose Edit : In short, is there a way to backup ONLY to the external drive/pool? I guess it's still more efficient than a dumb rsync (or is it?) ?
  13. Regarding problems with the 5700XT, once it works "reliably", I hope someone will be able to produce a full tutorial. 🥰 I spent already about 4 full weekends on setting up and understanding unraid... I can't afford the luxury to set up osx. So yes, you were lucky or talented if it was only one day.
  14. I tried with open core and the qcow2 image shared in this post. I manage to boot when using VNC, but never reach the loggin page with the 5700XT passed through. If someone managed to make it work, hints would be greatly appreciated.
