Constructor,

 

Wanted to thank you for taking the time to help me out.   Run command below

 

"Member":P, your run command looks OK. Maybe you're having a symptom of a larger problem with your system. Next time it happens go to Tools - Diagnostics and attach the complete zip to your next post.

I guess it's not as bad as thinking someones nym is "Member". Constructor is a custom setting based on trurl.

Hi everyone,

 

I had described this issue in General support before but they say here is the correct place so here it is:

 

i have finally a working setup - the last 4 weeks i have struggled with three Mainboards to access the igpu under /dev/dri/render128 and passthrough it to the plex docker container

 

here is my current hardware:

 

Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1225 v6

Supermicro X11SSH-F

Kingston 8 GB ECC DDR4-2400

 

 

with one exception - when Plex accesses the iGPU freezes the entire system - not even the bmc or the ipmi reacts - how can i provide logs? Where are these files? I have found two issues:

https://hobo.house/2018/05/18/fix-for-intel-i915-gpu-freeze-on-recent-linux-kernels/

https://forums.plex.tv/t/hardware-transcoding-quick-sync-centos-7-4/225091

 

maybe someone has an idea or a hardware recommendation - thanks for helping

When your system freezes, if you can still SSH/telnet into the server or have console access, type 'diagnostics' at the command line which will write all logs and system info to the unRAID flash drive.  Post diagnostics.

 

Other ways of getting at least partial unRAID log info can be found here.  It's a bit outdated, but, most of the info still applies.

 

Plex-specfic logs are found at <path to your appdata share plex folder>/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Logs.  Review those logs as perhaps there is something useful there.

 

I have i915 transcoding enabled on both my servers, as do many other unRAID users, and have never had any issues like what you describe. 

 

Obviously, according to the links you have provided, the issue exists at least with certain configurations.

 

As you can see from the specs in my signature, I have a Xeon E3-1245 v5 CPU in my main server and an i5 4590 in my backup server both with ASRock Rack motherboards (the backup server also has IPMI) and have never had a lockup due to Plex hardware transcoding.  In fact, as I type this, I am
"watching" a movie on Plex that is being transcoded in hardware.  I am running unRAID 6.6.5 on both servers.

Thanks for replying so fast

 

unfortunately, the system freezes completely, so neither local terminal, ssh or ipmi react only unplug the power supply is possible.

Can I find logs after a reboot? I will try to install ubuntu today to rule out a hardware error.

 

Which asrock board do you use? I've got more bitt of those, after I have annoyed the support for 2 weeks, they have told me that my board has no layer on the pcb for the igpu - but probably they use a c236 which should support this - manufacturers documentation is  frustration :D

I have been trying to get inter HW transcoding to work for the past months without success.

 

I have the 

Intel 8700k

Gigabyte HD3 Z370 motherboard

 

Unraid 6.6.5

 

 

In Plex, extra parameters, I have this line:

Quote

--device /dev/dri:/dev/dri

 

My go file:

Quote

#enable module for iGPU and perms for the render device 
modprobe i915
chown -R nobody:users /dev/dri
chmod -R 777 /dev/dri

 

My syslinux file has this:

Quote

label unRAID OS
  menu default
  kernel /bzimage
  append pci=realloc=off initrd=/bzroot i915.alpha_support=1

 

when I list directories in the path /dev/dri I have these:

Quote

 

by-path/

card0

renderD128

 

 

 

 

I do have a lifetime plex pass

 

I have it ticked "use hardware acceleration when available" in the Plex settings.

 

But still no hardware transcoding.

 

Here is the error from the Plex logs:

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated

 

edit:

I think I might not be using the linuxserver.io docker.
I think I have the official unraid docker, this is what says in the repistory:

plexinc/pms-docker

So perhaps this question doesn't belong here, but I hope I get some answers, maybe I should post it somewhere else

Yup, stopped working a few days ago when I updated to the latest UNRAID version - See post here

 

I've tried a custom port, but it still doesn't work?

 

Any ideas, as I've a few unhappy users 😂

Hi guys,

I have also some issues with my plex server.

After sorting out in a different thread, that my docker is running normally and fine, i am trying to find why my plex server "dies" after a reboot.

 

Before I was using Plex on OMV and all was fine so far.

On Unraid, I can install the docker img and then use it normally.
All good until I reboot.
Once I do that, the docker container will be stuck at:

Currently: Details:


Repository: linuxserver/plex
Server Version#: 1.14.0.5465-425e4ac90

 

When I do turn off the plex docker container and overwrite the folloing folder, the docker plex server will start normally.
/mnt/cache/appdata/PlexMediaServer/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-in Support/Databases
But it will break again after a restart.

 


In the docker log i see after the reboot:

Your uid and gid are not set from what I see in the container log. This is default in the template, so either you removed them or there is an issue with your system. 

Please post your docker run command.

Thanks, I tried to reuse the settings of the original plex docker container (copied the template and changed the repo) in order to not need to map all drives again. 

 

I will check if I missed smth there and report back this evening.

Full specs of both of my systems are in my signature.  In case you don't have signatures enabled, I have the ASRock C236 WSI board (Mini-ITX) but they have other boards in other form factors that support iGPU as well.

 

Here is the full-ATX version.

Edit:

you were right, the PUID and PGID were stated as PlexIUD and PlexGID.

I adapted it. But it didn't show any difference.

 

Edit2:

To avoid smth funny with the config, I created a new container from scratch. Added only my folders.

After a reboot of unraid i see the same behaviour.

 

Any ideas?

Your media are several Unassigned mounts. Are those attached disks or are they on the network?

 When you get this working before rebooting, is that after you have already mounted the Unassigned volumes?

 

Have you tried mapping with the slave option?

I have news. 

After coming back from dinner, and I just let it run 

cont-init.d] 40-chown-files: exited 0.
[cont-init.d] 50-plex-update: executing...
Atempting to upgrade to: 1.14.0.5465-425e4ac90

At some point i got:

Atempting to upgrade to:
wget: unable to resolve host address ‘downloads.plex.tv’

And now it's just working even across reboots.

I didn't change a thing, just a different docker container.

 

To get the plexpass release I have to add the ":plexpass" to the repo ?

Or is this different on this container? Does it work with the version string?

 

That is strange. I don't understand :S

 

I was trying since last tuesday to get it to run properly...

Don't do that. Use our template from the start.

You should use /mnt/cache for the /config mount if you have a cache drive. 

 

Read the Readme on github for how to use plexpass. Link in the first post.

Hey all - not sure if this is a known issue. But for the past week my Plex docker performance has been awful. I can't stream shows even locally (only 1 stream) and Unraid is showing near constant 100% CPU usage. I've tried disabling various dockers but it seems to directly be related to what is streaming's gonna plex. If I restart Plex it works for a few minutes then stops again. I used to easily be able to stream 5 connections. Core i5-4570 16GB of RAM with a 500GB SSD cache drive.
