Best speed / Setup

I currently have the following:



CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core

HVM: Enabled

IOMMU: Enabled

Cache: 768 KiB, 6 MB, 64 MB

Memory: 128 GiB DDR4 

Network: eth0: 1000 Mbps

Graphics Card: p2200

With 13 Array disks & 2 Pairty.

Cache is Sabrent_Rocket_4.0 1 TB (nvme0n1) PCI-E Gen 4.0 (about 4000-5000 Mbps)

Unassigned is Samsung_SSD_850_PRO 1TB (about 500Mbps)


For downloads everything goes to the Samsung SSD then once complete moves to the cache (Sabrent) and at midnight it moves to array. 

All of my dockers are on the Sabrent cache drive.


Is there a better config for this? I feel like its a bit redundant with moving the files to the Sabrent cache. I almost think it would be better to move the dockers to the Sabrent and use unassigned devices and the Samsung as the cache drive. Thoughts???

A PCIe gen 4 SSD as cache is a real waste if all you have as network behind that is gigabit Ethernet. You'll be limited to receiving/sending at approx. 100 MB/s. even a SATA SSD will consistently deliver way more than that.

I agree however I wanted a faster cache drive to help speed up the dockers (like poster load times on plex or video previews during scrubbing). Also for the price no point in not getting the latest and greatest.  Additionally I have now hooked up the 2.5Gbe port as well and combined it with the 1Gbe. 



eth0: 1000 Mbps, full duplex, mtu 1500  (Connected to 1Gbe router port)
eth1: 2500 Mbps, full duplex, mtu 1500  (Connected to 10Gbe router port & bridged to br0)
