found a bug with the program  not sure if its a bug or a setting  its just happened to me of if it does  

i have 6 disks and had a music folder across them all..    and i used the unbalance to move  all the music  to 1 drive so all the drives arent spinning and parity  to play music...

but i noticed when i accessing the music files all the drives spun up.. and Fix Common issues didnt find an error.

for the share Music i say  Include Disk 6...  but i noticed in krusader.. all the Drives still had  "Music" folder    so it spins up the drive

 

so when its Moving the Files off all the Disks'   it isn't deleting  Folder Music  on the other 5 data drives  so i manually had to delete it.. not sure if there is a setting in unbalance to delete the folder  or that its a linux thing when you move doesnt delete the folder..  but just noticed it..

 

not sure if i did something wrong in the settings etc

If Music was a top-level folder (share), per design, the app doesn't delete it.

ah ok  so then you have to manually go in and delete all the references of the share..  

since i set in shares   Only Drive 6 for Music no other drives..  

 

good to know 🙂

thanks

Would it be possible to update the plugin to support the Unraid 6.9 version with multiple cache pools?

Thank you.

Since the cache pools are nothing to do with ubBalance as it works on the array drives, what makes you think it needs an update for Unraid 6.9.0?

With multiple pools I am seeing this as multiple "cache" drives. Since the Mover is able to move the data from the pools to Array, it will be helfpul (at least for me) to use the unBalance as well for Scatter & Gather the data between Array and pools.

The green is the link.  when you switched it to yes did the apply button light up?  

After I clicked the DONE button, the page jumped to the SETTINGS page. And I re-opened the UNbalance, nothing happened, didn't see that green link..

This has to do with the configuration file /boot/config/plugins/unbalance/unbalance.conf

 

You can remove the notifyCalc line (or any other if you still get an error), or ... delete the config file altogether.

Thank you!  renamed the file unbalance_old.conf and it started up fine.

I would like this one too. I need to move from one cache pool to another. I prefer to not use rsync if I could.
