ceepeebee Posted February 7, 2022 Share Posted February 7, 2022 Hi all, After a play around with unRAID on an old Microserver, I plumped for a proper build and have it in situ now. I created my shares, dumped some drives in, and started copying all my native data (docs, pics, etc) and Plex data to it as well as ensuring my dockers were up to date etc. I sit here now, proud that almost all of my 12TB of media has transferred over; I then suddenly realise that as I'll be running file sharing, some other media servers and more, all from the same "array", I might suffer something I hadn't previously thought of as I had a dedicated PMS before; performance issues. So, whilst my media is now scattered across all disks, I'm aware that, had I not been a complete fool, I might have been able to think about this a bit more without battering my disks. My question is, am I worrying about nothing? I have a combination of 5900 and 7200RPM drives in the array (7200 parity drive). Am I likely to actually see performance stutters and bottlenecks from general file shares and backups etc. My guess is "very possibly". Share with me your setups if you think it will help as a teachable moment Quote Link to comment
