How much RAM do you have installed in your unRAID server?

56GB of ECC RAM, as one of my 8GB sticks died.

I did have up to 128gb when I was running an VMware system in a HP DL360, but that as too noisey for home usage when I had to move it out of the Data centre it was in. Also when I migrated to UnRaid and never looked back!

16 GB, but only because I had it lying around.  It's total overkill for my needs and 8GB would have been ample!

48GB of DDR3 ECC UDIMM.

 

Will expend it to 96GB later this year I think. It'll be overkill, but I like having room to grow and so far I've only populated 3 of my 12 slots. :P

 

Enterprise gear is fun. :ph34r:

32GB here. My previous setup was primarily running VMs, so I needed a lot of RAM. Now I normally don't even use 25% with 15+ dockers and a single VM running.

yeah, sitting here with 32GB too, but tmpfs for things like a plex transcode folder is a good use of the RAM, reduces cache writes too :)  I made a 24GB max one

DDR3 is quite cheap i went with 128GB (8x8 + 16x4). I have not finished configuring unraid but for now using less than 24GB with 34 dockers and 4 vms.

I probably could use a tmpfs in ram too.

i upgraded from 32 to 64 DDR Ram.

 

Plex using alot of RAM here and i wanted a 3rd VM Ubuntu for xrdp remote chrome etc.

 

may a question, is the /tmp from host autpmatically usable as RAM disk ? so when i mount /transcode from Plex to /tmp in host should it be all in RAM or do i have to mount something special for RAM ?

Anything on the host that is not under /mnt or /boot is automatically in RAM.

Also now running 48GB ECC DDR3 doubled it a few weeks ago but no seen it go over 50% used lol...

I have

Plex Transcoding to RAM

Single Win10VM with max 16GB assigned

true, but the automatically created one uses mount defaults, including a max size of 1/2 your RAM... which, could be very important.  For example, I found that if I am DVRing and watching something I could pull down 22GB of space and I have 32GB of RAM.  If I used defaults, then I'd run out of space and my DVRs would get auto cancelled.  I mounted manually with a max size of 24GB to avoid this.

I have 320GB
I wish UNraid could make better use of it... like a real cache drive
