Preclear plugin

I am posting about an issue that I am having using the Preclear plugin (2015.09.08) and unRAID (Ver 6.1.1).  Unfortunately, I am unable to attached a screen capture to clearly illustrate what is going on. So I going to do a copy-and-paste to illustrate the problem.  (Even this is difficult as the screen keeping updating every few seconds.) This short copy is a portion of the entire display that shows about bit more than one of the typical screen (that JoeL's preclear script generates)  that is normally displayed.  The entire display contains about eight to ten of these screens of information separated by the update time (and information) being a few seconds apart.

It's a bug i'm chasing. unRAID 6.1.1 don't have the correct terminal descriptor in place, so I had to include ncurses on the package. Or you started your preclear session before I update the package to 2015.09.08 or it's still broken.

As a point of information, I started this preclear session yesterday and the update to the 2015.09.08 version was done on 2015.09.09 prior to this session.  I wanted to make sure that you were aware of the issue.  I hope you find the source of the problem so it can be corrected. 

 

Thanks again for all your work in getting this GUI interface for the preclear script.

 

PS--- I can recall that there was some type of message generated during the install that the ncurses package all ready existed and the installation was being skipped.

I just checked in the config/plugins/preclear.disk folder, there is a ncurses-5.9-x86_64-2.txz file with a date of 5/7/2013.

Can you try reinstall this package and run a preclear test to see if the bug occur again?

Not at the present time.  I am running a preclear (three cycles) on a 3TB drive.  I will do it when I get that drive done (Guessing Saturday) and installed as the new parity drive on my Test Bed server .

 

Just to double check what you want done.  I assume you want me to uninstall the plugin and then reinstall it.  Or did you want me to empty the config/plugins/preclear.disk folder also? (I do have a 1TB drive that I can use for a test.)

OK. Did two things:  First, updated to version 6.0.2. Second, uninstall Preclear Plugin and reinstalled the package.

You can see what I am getting in the Popup window.  I am running Firefox 40.0.3 on a windows 7 computer. 

 

What I observed was that the popup screen kept getting longer and longer as the first refreshes of the the displayed data occurred.  Then it stopped adding more info to the displayed text and simply updated each set of information within the window as it refreshed.  (Notice the change in the progress of each set.)  It appears that something is wrong in screen refresh logic early in the testing sequence.

 

EDIT:  The reports were all correctly formatted so this is a cosmetic issue more than anything else but I would imagine that it makes for a somewhat ungainly display on any device with a small display resolution.  (Mine is a 2560x1600)

I have been using this preclear package from the beginning. Including all versions of Unraid 6.

My current version is  v6.1.2

 

The only problem I ever experienced was it would take 10 or 20 clicks of the Start button to start the plugin and just as many to the X button to stop the plugin.

 

I just did two consecutive updates 2015.09.18 and then 2015.09.19a  and now get this error message

I do have stream installed via the Unmenu Package Manager

Sadly I am also getting a funny looking pop-up status display window. It used to be properly formatted, like what one used to see in the 'screen' window on putty.

I was not... somehow I missed the latest upgrade.... I have upgraded, but it still shows the issue. I assume its because I started the process on the older x.18 version. Do you think this is why?

 

Thank you.

You can see what I am getting in the Popup window.  I am running Firefox 40.0.3 on a windows 7 computer. 

 

What I observed was that the popup screen kept getting longer and longer as the first refreshes of the the displayed data occurred.  Then it stopped adding more info to the displayed text and simply updated each set of information within the window as it refreshed.  (Notice the change in the progress of each set.)  It appears that something is wrong in screen refresh logic early in the testing sequence.

 

EDIT:  The reports were all correctly formatted so this is a cosmetic issue more than anything else but I would imagine that it makes for a somewhat ungainly display on any device with a small display resolution.  (Mine is a 2560x1600)

 

Got back from my trip yesterday.  Latest update of your Preclear Plugin has resolved this issue for me.

 

Thanks again for all your efforts.  It is a another important step in making unRAID more user friendly!!!

Thanks for your feedback, Frank1940!

 

Today I've made real use of this plugin, because I haven't expanded the array in a while. I must say it has a breeze! ;D ;D ;D ;D

I am new to UnRaid, I just built my server yesterday in fact and I am trying to get the pre clear working, however a pop up shows up every time I try to use the plugin and is asking for a Yes or No prompt and I cannot seem to figure out how to enter Yes so the pre clear will continue. Do I need to modify the script or something? I am not terribly proficient with Linux but could probably do it.

 

 

Thanks

Did you install the Preclear Plugin using the instructions in the first post of this thread?  Or you you running the preclear script from the command line either on a monitor or a telnet session? 

 

This plugin is actually started from the GUI on the 'Settings' page.  You will find the 'Preclear Disk' icon near the bottom of the screen.

I don't see the "mail" option when I start a pre-clear?  I see it as an option in video... but not in my options?

 

I get the mail notifications for other stuff like array health and what not..
