Kevin.

 

Okay, I see what went wrong. Need to make a modification to the installation file (.plg).

 

You better delete the file, it is completely mixed-up (don't worry settings will return to default once you delete).

Bonienl, Thanks for all your hard work on these plugins and the Dynamix integration into unRAID! This really looks great!

Thanks for all the hardwork - very excited about all of this.

 

One question on email notifications.

 

The old simplefeatures email notify would email me when the server was booted and give me some basic info.  Does this still exist?  I have the email notify setup but don't get anything on boot.  Is the new system only for major issues etc?

 

Thanks!

Notifications in the new system are event driven, this is a different approach from the past in which the email script in the background would poll every so many minutes to check status and report. In this situation email notifications and browser notifications was strictly separated.

 

The event approach allows the usage of event handlers which determine what and how to process a notification, e.g. send a mail, show a popup or do both, this however is still work in progress and event handlers are being added for upcoming updates.

The default for the dynamix GUI in beta12 appears to be the 'white' theme.  Would it not be better to default to the 'black' one as it looks much slicker (at least in my opinion).

I agree that black looks much better but changing that to default would start a riot.

Why?    It would make it much clerer that there has been a major GUI overhaul.    It can always be changed back to white for those who prefer it.  Maybe changing between these themes is something that should be made particularly easy and obvious (e.g. an option on the dashboard).

People dislike change. I am willing to bet that a few people are going to complain that the new GUI is dynamix and they are not used to the way it looks.

 

Moral of the story is people be nuts! That said I vote black is default too.

At one level I guess you are corrett.    However there is a vocal set o fusers who have been complaining that the current GUI is outdated and needs upting to a more modern look.

 

I was thinking that changing the default for v6 to black what make it more obvious to people that this release is something new.  It might encourage them to go looking for the new features rather than assuming that it is just 'more of the same'.

 

On a side inote are other colored themes easy to implement for those who like things to be really flamboyant?

ah, sorry for the confusion.

 

If you are using a sensors.conf file, you need to move it into the folder /boot/config.

 

Otherwise you need to create one to set the correct names for the sensors of your M/B and CPU.

 

Where can we find more info on how to create the sensors.conf and what it should contain?

Skip to step 7, and see which driver comes up at the end. Mine only showed the virtual-0 until I ran sensors-detect which came up with chip it87, ran 'modprobe it87' at cli then 'sensors' which then displayed the it87 core information for me to create the sensors.conf file

Anyone having difficulty getting cache-dirs to start?  I can't seem to get it rolling. 

 

I took the script version out of my go file already.

trying to setup my sensors.cfg,  This is what I have in it,

#modprobe for each sensor
modprobe nct6775
modprobe <sensor2>
modprobe <sensor3>

Not sure what <Sensor2> and <sensor3> should actually be?

Share this post

The modprobe lines need to go into your go file

 

my sensors.conf is as follows for a example

 

# lines starting with "#" are comments and ignored
# sensor configuration

chip "nct6776-isa-*"
label temp1 "MB Temp"
label temp2 "CPU Temp"

 

The wiki entry listed tells you step by step what to do

Hmmm...

 

root@media:~# sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.

 

so I did...

 

root@media:~# sensors-detect
# sensors-detect revision 6170 (2013-05-20 21:25:22 +0200)
# System: # SMBIOS implementations newer than version 2.7 are not # SMBIOS implementations newer than version 2.7 are not [# SMBIOS implementations newer than version 2.7 are not]

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
unless you know what you're doing.

Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): yes
Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595...                       No
VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors...                          No
VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors...                            No
AMD K8 thermal sensors...                                   No
AMD Family 10h thermal sensors...                           No
AMD Family 11h thermal sensors...                           No
AMD Family 12h and 14h thermal sensors...                   No
AMD Family 15h thermal sensors...                           No
AMD Family 15h power sensors...                             No
AMD Family 16h power sensors...                             No
Intel digital thermal sensor...                             Success!
    (driver `coretemp')
Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor...                         No
VIA C7 thermal sensor...                                    No
VIA Nano thermal sensor...                                  No

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): yes
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'...               No
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'...               Yes
Found unknown chip with ID 0xc803
    (logical device B has address 0x290, could be sensors)
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'...               No
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'...               No
Trying family `ITE'...                                      No

Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces
through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things.
We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it
there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such
interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI
interfaces? (YES/no): yes
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No

Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): yes
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290...       No
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290...       No
Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290...                   No
Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290...                   No

Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
on some systems.
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): yes
Found unknown SMBus adapter 8086:8ca2 at 0000:00:1f.3.
Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue:

Driver `coretemp':
  * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

Do you want to generate /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (yes/NO): yes
Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init to /etc/init.d/lm_sensors
for initialization at boot time.
You should now start the lm_sensors service to load the required
kernel modules.

 

then, I still get...

 

root@media:~# sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.

 

This is on an ASRock Z97 Extreme6 motherboard.  I see temps and fans speeds in BIOS, just not in putty/console.

I'm still not sure what my sensors are?

 

eroz, try this for your sensors.conf file and save on your flash drive. Since you are returning results from sensors -u coretemp-isa-0000, I am pretty sure it will work.

 

/boot/config/sensors.conf

 

# sensor configuration

chip "coretemp-isa-0000"

label temp1 "MB Temp"
label temp2 "CPU Temp"

 

Don't forget to add modprobe coretemp in your go file.

 

Hope that helps,

 

Gary

JustinChase, I pretty much have the same board as you and get the same results from sensors-detect so you can use my sensors.conf file above below too.  :)

 

Here is my /boot/config/sensors.conf file:

 

# sensor configuration

chip "coretemp-isa-0000"

label temp1 "MB Temp"
label temp2 "CPU Temp"

 

Don't forget to add modprobe coretemp in your go file.

Thanks for the help.

 

I created a /boot/config/sensors.conf file and added only the lines quoted above.

 

I then added "modprobe coretemp" (without quotes) to my go file.  I have not rebooted, but I did run modprobe coretemp in putty, but still no temps.

 

I'll reboot soon, just wanted to confirm I did it right before rebooting.

 

#!/bin/bash
# Start the Management Utility
/usr/local/sbin/emhttp &
echo 192.168.20.150 media >>/etc/hosts
/usr/local/sbin/vfio-bind 0000:01:00.0 0000:01:00.1 0000:07:00.0
/boot/config/plugins/snap/snap.sh -m snapdisk

I think if you remove and then re-install the plugin it should work for you now. Did for me anyway.

That seems to have worked, thanks!

 

Both temps show 117; not sure if that's right.  I'd expect them to be at least a little different.

 

** I refreshed a few times, and now they are different.

 

Any way to know which is which?  There are no labels.
